    BLOODY HELL. This is what I call a true MC romance. Angst. Heartbreak. Hate. Love. Drama. Dysfunction.No sugar coating.Bleeding-out-on-the-floor painful.****MILD SPOILERS****The first part of the book can be described with one word: CHAOS.It almost ruined me. I’m an angst addict, I thrive on it. But that was almost too much even for me. Wrath and Trinity. God, what they did to each other. It was pure torture. Madly infatuated and obsessed with each other. Watching each other with other people for eight long years. Deliberately hurting and punishing each other, making each other jealous. It hurt like hell reading about it but in some sick and twisted way I loved every second of it.Wrath. Sergeant-at-arms. An underground fighter.Possessive, frustrated, intense, impulsive, complicated, blunt, proud, stubborn, spiteful, grumpy, defiant, tough. I adore him, one of my favorite male characters. Faults and all. I liked being in his head. I loved his ramblings and his internal thoughts. Trinity. A club girl.Insecure, damaged, tough, vulnerable, emotional, modest, reasonable. I can’t express how much I like that girl.Someone may question why they spent so many years hating and hurting each other but I GET it. I do. They weren’t in a real relationship when things went south. They were too damaged and they didn’t know each other well enough to talk out a solution to their problem. If you survive the first part...... you will be able to take a breather in the second part.The second part of the book deals with WAKING UP.This part is less dramatic but still painful and gripping. You’ll still sweat like a pig waiting for a disaster to happen.Here the story gets slow, like real-time slow. There are a lot of details, every moment is mentioned and every event is thoroughly described. But this is how it is supposed to be. Because the details and internal thoughts help you understand the characters and their story. Because forgiving is a painful and slow process.The characters are so well developed that you feel like you know them personally. You get so wrapped up into them, you can’t help but think of them as your friends.The third and last part focuses on healing and learning to trust each other. It’s where you really fall in love with each of the characters. And although there’s only a happy-for-now ending, you’ll feel satisfied and at peace.Fuck no, Trinity. When we’re old and gray, and you’re on the back of my Tri-Glide, you’ll still be my girl.This book is not for everybody. If you don’t like long and slow books with lots of drama, heartbreak and high angst levels, then this book is not for you.QUICK REVIEW:Enjoyment: 5/5Writing style: 4/5Storyline: 4/5 Hero: 5/5Heroine: 4/5Secondary characters: 5/5 Hotness/steam: 4/5 Romance: 4/5 Angst: 5/5Darkness level: 3/5Humor: 3/5 Depth of the book: 4/5POV: dual, 1st person Triggers: (view spoiler)[explicit sex scenes with other people (hide spoiler)] Recommended for: fans of Madeline Sheehan (Undeniable series), Nicole Jacquelyn (The Aces series)["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    Autumn… here’s my heart… you ripped it out. I knew going in that Tattered on My Sleeve would be so far different than Rock and Hope’s. Yes, Rock and Hope’s romance was far from traditional and full of angtsy twists. Yet, Wrath and Trinity’s story both broke and shocked me. These two characters set themselves not only on a collision course from the first time they meet, but on a path of self-destruction. Trinity may come off as a club girl, but she really isn’t. The club protects her and she in turn, helps run the club house. Her sexual exploits during her self-inflicted destruction phase are hot as hell, but painful to read at the same time. You know where her true feelings lie, but he’s someone that she can’t have. She settles for hook ups as she painfully watches his own exploits. Wrath on the other hand takes one misunderstanding and runs with his misguided notation. His heart aches every single time Trinity goes with another one of his brothers in leather, but she made her choice in his eyes. He’s a tortured soul with a heart of gold, and I loved him for it. Autumn has taken her unique MC premise and added so much to the story. Wrath and Trinity’s romance opens up a gambit of emotions that may not have been experienced in Rock and Hope’s stories. Their emotional journey and redemption is simply beautiful. One minute you’ll be grabbing your fictional baseball bat to knock some sense into them and the next you’ll be ugly crying for days. I took my time with this book because I knew I wanted to enjoy each beautiful chapter instead of speed reading my way to the end. The extra time I spent reading this slowly made the journey even more worth it. You may have broken my heart, Autumn, but by the end you stitched it slowly back together to form something more beautiful than before it was shattered.

    "Nothing to be scared of, sweetheart. I got you. I'll fucking massacre anyone who tries to touch you-even a ghost." "Come stay with me." Tattered on My Sleeve is the fourth book in the Lost Kings MC. Although you can read this as a stand-alone, I do not recommend it. The characters are so intricately connected and in order to experience the full magnitude of the club, you should start with the first book in the series Slow Burn. The first three books focus on the club President Rock and his ol' lady Hope! Tattered on My Sleeve is all about Wrath (the club Sergeant-at-arms) and Trinity (one of the club girls). From the first three books in the series, we know that Trinity and Wrath have quite a history together. This is their story. "This is perfect." Wyatt "Wrath" Ramsey is responsible for the security of the Brotherhood. He is all about protecting his club. When he meets the beautiful blonde bartender Trinity Hurst, a simple ride on the town on his bike ignites a flame that will be tested but never fully burns out. Wrath and Trinity share a few nights together, and the start of a relationship begins to bloom. However, when Wrath is sent out on club business, Trinity finds herself in some trouble. She calls Rock for help. When Wrath returns from his run, he finds Trinity is the new club girl for the MC. Wrath is furious, and a battle of the heart between Trinity and Wrath is waged."This is it. She's it. Stop fucking it up." Wrath is so broken by Trinity's willingness to serve "his club" instead of being "only his" that he pushes her far away. Although Trinity is a force to be reckoned with, her past has caused her to be cautious with men. She feels rejected by Wrath and hence, the pain begins. "She's mine. I'm hers. No more fucking nonsense." Tattered on My Sleeve explores Trinity and Wrath's past and their present. The history between the two has put a barrier between them that seems indestructible. They are continuously causing each other pain. Wrath has no problem entertaining the club whores, and Trinity has found solace in the arms of the brothers. And yet, Wrath and Trinity share a bond. As the years pass, the glances, the touches, the memories, eventually sweep in and smack them both down with the force of a train. But can they truly forget the years of pain and torture they have inflicted on each other? "I want her to beg for my cock. I want her to scream my name. I want her to admit that she's mine in front of everyone.""Don't make me wait, Angel Face. I want to lick, and suck your pretty pussy until you come." Told in dual POV, I adored this addition to the series. The characterization was so thoroughly explored that I felt every ounce of emotion with every single solitary moment that passed. The depth of pain that Trinity endured as a child was so deep that it affected her life. That pain was so profound that she had to learn how to accept the love of a man. Wrath, the strong and loyal best friend, was so stubborn that he missed so much precious time. I loved the constant pendulum swing between "healing tenderness" and "fiery passion" shared between the two. Wrath and Trinity are perfectly matched, and I found watching the "advance/retreat" between the two invigorating as opposed to "angsty." The relationship between Wrath and Trinity also significantly affected the dynamics of the club. I thoroughly enjoyed every second of the guys and girls of the LOKI! For the Rock and Hope fans, as you know from the first three books, they are still a very critical part of the story, and you will be happy to catch an additional perspective on their relationship as well! "You're mine to protect. Mine to love. Anyone hurts you, I'll kill them." Overall, Tattered on My Sleeve is sheer perfection! With each book, I am more addicted to this series. The superb blend of complex characters, club dynamics, action, and passion make the Lost Kings MC a must read! Bravo Ms. Lake! Bravo!***Lost Kings MC****COPY kindly gifted via the author in exchange for an honest review! Thank you, Autumn Jones Lake for blessing my KINDLE with your writing!

    5 BEAUTIFULLY TATTERED, RIP YOUR HEART OUT STARS!!I’m stunned by the sincere, heartfelt intensity of Tattered on My Sleeve. I shouldn’t be. Hope and Rock’s journey was no picnic and full of struggles. Brace yourself, this author has sharpened the tools she uses to rip your heart out with Wrath and Trinity’s story. We know who Trinity is. She told Hope very plainly in Corrupting Cinderella that she “serves the members on as-needed basis”. Yet, Trinity is written like no other “club girl” I’ve ever read before. The only one who comes close is Dorothy in Madeline Sheehan’s Undeniable series. I already loved Trinity from the first three books. I thought Wrath was a big jerk who couldn’t admit he was in love with her. I expected a simple story about them finally admitting their feelings and getting together.I should have known better. Nothing this author does is simple. Autumn Jones Lake is not your conventional romance author. Tattered does not follow any of the usual romance formulas. But it’s a beautiful journey and ends on the perfect note. Wrath surpassed all my expectations for the perfect alpha hero in a romance. Biker or otherwise. He's hot and possessive. He's also understanding and forgiving. After he decides to stop fucking around, he puts Trinity's needs first, even though at times he has no idea what they are. I really fell in love with him for the way he would be gentle when she needed gentle and hard when she needed hard. Tattered is a long, emotional book. The author was not fucking around when she chose the title. Be prepared to cry, laugh and want to smack these two. I'm almost mad at myself for reading it too fast. I need to go back and reread!

    4 StarsThis is a little different than my usual MC Club..."fare" in that the heroine, Trinity, is not a lawyer......a biker's daughter......or anything like that...She's a Club Girl. And we all know what that means.Home girl gets around a little bit. Now pipe down all you "don't slut-shame" psychopaths.I'm not slut-shaming, people.Cause you know, sexual revolution, women's rights, yadda, yadda yadda.My point here - there really is one, I swear - is that Trinity and Wrath's story is a little different than the norm in that they fuck other people during the course of their own love story. NOT my favorite scenario. But, having read book one, I already knew that would be the case and still wanted to read Trinity and Wrath's book. And I could attempt to make it through this book.#TeamBritBritAnd I'm glad I did.Even though I sometimes got really fucking annoyed with the actions of these two asshats and how they allowed their relationship to get to the point it did...especially Trinity... ...we eventually discover more about Trinity and her past. And why she is the way she is. And in the end, it was really cool to watch her and Wrath come together and see to how much he cared about her. Their connection was truly palpable for me and I really enjoyed it. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series......and I feel compelled to go back now and read books two and three - which I originally skipped because they are about the same couple as book one - however, there were shenanigans between those two in this book that apparently occurred in those previous books (as parts of this book overlapped with all three of those previous books) and I find myself curious...

    TATTERED ON MY SLEEVE, the 4th book in the Lost Kings MC series, starts eight years prior to Slow Burn. For the first part the book moves back and forth between the past and present with scenes that compliment each other. You’d see how they fucked up in the past and then you’d see them in a similar situation in the present where they got it right (or almost). I really loved that. It’s different and I don’t think I’ve seen very many books attempt that before.I don’t want to spoil it, but because of the way it’s written, you are rooting for Wrath and Trinity to get their shit together from the very beginning. We are given a hint right from the start that Trinity has a dark secret in her past. The author does what so many authors can’t seem to figure out how to do. She teases the story out in a realistic way. We don’t get a big back story or info dump on page one. Nope. The story moves along and we pick up clues and learn things along the way. And when you finally learn the story, it’s devastating. By then all you want to do is hug Trinity. Has that story line been done before? Sure. Has it been done like this? NEVER.Wrath also has his own dark past. It shaped him into who he is, but he’s not some whiny, angsty guy who wallows in the past. He feels deeply and you really see his caring side without the author completely emmasculating him. I don’t know what it is, but this author knows how to write fierce alpha male characters who are also deep, and sensitive in their own way, without making them pussies. REAL MEN. Not violent assholes who pretend to be men. Wrath is no exception. He is who he is and doesn’t give a fuck what anyone thinks of him. What fascinated me about Tattered is how closely woven and interconnected it is to the first three books, yet it is not just a retelling of those stories. When events overlap, they are told from Wrath’s or Trinity’s side and how it impacts them. You learn Wrath often wasn’t being the big jerk everyone thought he was. My favorite thing is the layers and deep feelings explored between all of the characters. Rock and Wrath’s relationship has always been one of my favorites. But seeing things from Wrath’s side makes you look at Rock a little…different. Not bad different. Wrath loves Rock and looks up to him very much like a big brother. But he’s also incredibly angry and frustrated with him (with good reason). My other favorite relationship is between Wrath and Hope. They provide some needed comic relief! Besides their funny moments, they also share some deep ones. We already saw how Wrath’s attitude towards Hope changed over the first three books, but now we see it from his perspective and it made me love him even more. Like Rock, Wrath treats the women around the MC with respect, even if he dislikes them. He’s not abusive to prove he’s a “real man”. One of my favorite scenes is when he throws Cookie out of the clubhouse. He’s firm but not mean or cruel and when she’s blubbering about what she should do, he simply says “leave.”We also get to see his relationship with the other brothers—and Wrath’s immense patience and restraint. Z – the prankster. Murphy and Teller who are young and dumb. We also get to see more of the brothers that we’ve only heard bits and pieces from. Ravage, Dex, Stash and Sparky make a few appearances. I loved every page of Tattered on My Sleeve and I can't wait for more from the Lost Kings MC. I'm really hoping the author does another book with Wrath and Trinity and Hope and Rock. I'm also looking forward to Murphy and Heidi's story (or Axel and Heidi the suspense is killing me!).If you're looking for a fast, quick, smutty read, this isn't your book. Tattered On My Sleeve is intense, deep, emotional, and burning hot. It will break your heart, melt your panties and leave you with a big smile on your face when it's over.

    This was a long one but so worth it!! I have never read an MC book that was so detailed and complicated. This book is raw, gritty, emotional and heart-breaking.It's the story of Wrath and Trinity. Trinity is a woman who's been raised in motorcycle clubs. She knows bikers well and she knows her way around them. Wrath is the sergeant-at-arms of The Lost Kings MC. He is cocky, a player and he never plans to settle down, let alone have an old lady. Everything changes when he meets Trinity at one of the club's bars. Her personality is like a shock of fresh air and he is immediately captivated. Trinity is attracted to him as well but her low self-esteem makes her doubt herself. They begin a short but very passionate affair that comes to an abrupt end when Trinity's past comes back to haunt her. Trinity is forced to make a choice and that choice will push Wrath out of her life. Being a club mama means that she is fair game to anyone of the brothers. Wrath's stubborn personality won't let her explain that her life is in danger and so, they begin a push and pull relationship that will ruin them. Wrath's jealousy against his president and his club brothers will poison his feelings for Trinity and they will spend eight years trying to destroy and hurt each other.Their lives will be shaken from that short affair and they will have to face each other every day while forcing themselves to be apart. They will lose themselves into a useless chain of affairs that has only one purpose; to make the other one hurt.The road to happiness is built with thorns and the way to forgiveness will be rocky and dangerous. One thing is for certain; they need each other.The book was a long one. It could have been really tiring if the writing and heroes weren't so great. The book was very detailed and there were a lot of characters that made it richer. I was amazed because I wasn't tired at all while I was reading it. It's one hell of a long ride, but you will not be disappointed. If you love MC books you will love this one. I highly recommend it and now I am very curious about the other books in the series.5 Magnificent Stars from me!Release Date: July 28thI received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    ★★★★ 4 Stars ★★★★Now LIVE!US http://bit.ly/LKMC4_WRATH UK - http://bit.ly/LKMC4_Wrath_UKDo you know what, it's about damn time someone wrote a book about a heroine who is as 'slutty' as her male counterpart. Tattered on my Sleeve is basically a second chance romance between Sergeant-at- Arms, Wyatt 'Wrath' Ramsey, and club Mama, Trinity Hirst.Trinity grew up in the MC life and has literally seen it all, she's experienced things that would break most people and have leave a long lasting psychological effect. However, she is a very strong woman, and when the President of The Lost Kings MC offers her shelter and protection she is so grateful that she ends up making the club her life. She takes pride in looking after the compound and all of the brothers, and although she is never obliged to, she does indulge in recreational sex, and why the hell not!There is one problem though, and that comes in the form of the blond haired and beautiful, underground fighter, and Sergeant-at- Arms, -Wrath.In a case of bad timing, they meet the week before Trinity's past catches up with her, and they have beautiful 3 days together before Wrath has to go on a run. Trinity feels strangely safe with this big bad biker and he is drawn to her sweet and fearless charm."She glared up at me with bold eyes.Her fearlessness was the biggest turn-on."The shit hits the fan and a man from her past spots her which causes her to seek help from Wrath's president at The Lost Kings. On his return, Wrath begs her to not move into the clubhouse, but she has no choice.Wrath assumes that she is offering herself up to his brothers, so refuses to listen to her explanation and for eight years they torture each other by going with other people and their relationship becomes a destructive one.I'm too fucked up.Too damaged to ever be anything more than I am now.A club whore."When Wrath finally comes to his senses, he realises that he needs to claim this beautiful and kind hearted woman._ _ _ _Autumn Jones Lake is a new author to me, I have not read the first 3 books in this series which follow the President's journey to find love. This was not an easy read, it was such a detailed story, spanning 8 years and the character development and story progression was phenomenal.Wyatt was your typical biker, he had his share of club sluts and was absolutely awful to Trinity at times, but I can forgive my fictitious bikers because as much as Wyatt was lashing out in anger, deep down he was a passionate and loyal man who had a delicious alpha possessive vibe going on for his girl."Holy fuck.We're so goddamn dysfunctional and twisted. I don't know if I can ever fix us.But I want to try."My heart broke for poor Trinity, she was trying to make the best of her life after a horrific start and I could absolutely forgive her for using sex as both a weapon and a crutch. Since her daddy died when she was a child she hadn't received or given love and truly believed that her only value was for sex, I found it so sad.I loved how everybody loved and appreciated her and that it was Wrath who finally made her see and believe that just because she had sex with a lot of the men in the brotherhood, that she was a woman with compassion, a talent for art, and many other attributes that made her, her. She was worth everything.The writing was flawless, and I think if it wasn't as long as it was (sorry, I'm not a fan of mega long books) then I would have rate slightly higher. I am looking forward to future books in this series which will concentrate on new characters but also catch up with the previous ones.This is a standalone biker romance, told in dual POV, past and present.

    Another I've waited many months for. I do have the knack of falling for side characters. And Wrath was no exception.Of course that, at first, I didn't like him. He was an a-hole to Hope and Trinity, too. I don't know where and when, but that changed and I became #PropertyofWrath. I kept bugging Autumn about it, but she's so awesome and a sweetie, being patient with me and not getting mad. What can I say, I'm passionate about characters I love!"I don't get on my knees for anyone. Ever."We've all met Trinity in the previous books. She's the woman in charge of running the club house; cleaning, cooking. She's also a club momma. Now, the fact that a woman sleeps with men she likes, whenever she likes is not a big deal. However, in the MC world, there's no respect for women that do that. Outside of the LOKI MC, there was no respect for Trin. Of course that Rock's a sweetheart and has laid down the law, from the beginning. It was her choice.Now, at first, I was pissed at Trinity. I didn't get it. She frustrated me to no end. I ached for Wrath. But, as the story progressed, we found out more and more and I started to understand, and really, it broke my heart. We all have a past. Some of us had it better than others. Trin was in the latter. Wrath had his moments too. He'd piss me off - there's proof of that in a convo with Autumn, hah - then he'd say or do something and make me melt. Both of them are so complex and complicated but they make it work. Once they overcome some things - cough, Wrath pulls his head out of his lovely derriere, cough - all's well. Or, as can be expected in the MC world. The many feelings I've had ranged from being pissed, frustrated, to teary-eyed, brokenhearted and wanting more. Yes, it's a long book but I still want more. It's Wrath, can you blame me? I loved it. I'm going to reread it, I'm sure of that.It was one heck of a ride. 5 stars.I wish to thank the author and Give Me Books for this copy given in exchange of an honest review.P.S. Wrath is also #PropertyofIza.

    What a beautiful story of two broken people, forgiveness, redemption and survival. Absolutely loved Trinity and Wrath's story. He was Ah-Ma-Zing! Holy hotness!Long book, but did not feel long at all. Was wonderful the way it covered the same time period as the first three books (some of it) but it all still felt fresh and new! So well done!

    I didn't think anything could top the first three books! Boy was I wrong. Wrath is...I have no words for how amazing he turned out to be. The care and love and understanding he showed Trinity. Oh and Trinity, one of the best romance heroines ever. She's so broken, yet so sweet and determined and just wonderful.5 beautifully tattered, heartbreaking, panty-melting stars!

    Dysfunctional and twisted...I've been anxiously waiting to get my hands on Wrath. Well, yes, I would love to touch his "muscle-y-male perfection", but I meant his book. He captured my heart when his softened towards 'Cinderella' in the previous book. That's when I knew that he had the promise of being an incredible main character and I wanted to get to know him better. I had also gotten glimpses of the chemistry and tension between Wrath and Trinity and wondered what their story was. It was a much longer story than I expected, you will get your money's worth when you one-click for sure.Their beginning was so perfect. They connected instantly and their chemistry was so strong that their was no denying it. She was funny and sassy, not taking shit from anyone. I thought she was perfect for Wrath, whom she tagged as 'Wrecking Ball' due to his Sergeant-at-arms position with the Lost Kings MC. I was excited as I felt their passion and enjoyed their banter. It wasn't until it all fell apart that I remembered having met Trinity before, that she was the girl that befriended Hope at the clubhouse. So, now I'm finally understanding that I've gone back in time and that this story is running parallel to Rock & Hope's story. I'm getting a new perspective of some of the events that were previously covered and it's very enlightening. I fell even more in love with Wrath as his layers were peeled back and his heart was exposed. He is the muscle of the club, the protector, the enforcer. He's huge, with rippling muscles and a sexy smirk that keeps the women lined up for a chance with him. He's always taken advantage of that and never desired more than instant gratification...until her.Trinity is broken. Her past is painful and has bled into her future, keeping her expectations low and her dreams disturbed. When an event takes place that causes her to seek out the club's protection lines get crossed and misunderstandings take place. She's thrown into his life, whether he likes it or not, and he can't escape the pull he feels towards her. She's like a magnet to his metal and it's a constant battle to fight their chemistry, but unfortunately he's very strong and fight he does. Not only in the clubhouse but in the gym and the ring. That's where he takes his frustration and anger, further enhancing that perfect eight-pack that has all the women drooling. Yes, Trinity is one of them, but she keeps her drooling to herself. She admires him from afar, keeping her distance, feeling the pain as she sees those women coming and going. It's painful for her to witness because she knows exactly what she's missing, how good it was, what she might have had..if only.Get ready to melt and sigh, to gasp and giggle, and to yearn and yell as you experience the desperation and danger of yet another amazing installment in the Lost Kings MC series. I love how the author describes the endings as HFN, which stands for Happy For Now, because 'thank goodness' their story is not over. We still have Teller, Murphy, Axel, Z and who knows how many other "brothers by choice" to keep us coming back for more for a long time to come.

    I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.Wow. This way more than your typical MC romance. Wrath and Trinity had hurt one another in ways most couples I know could never recover from. They both will have to constantly forgive and try to forget with painful reminders being in their faces every single day. It won't be easy, but as this book so incontrovertibly proves to us, the devotion they have to each other is strong enough to pull them through. Trinity's story is brutally painful and even though I know the last thing she would want is pity I couldn't help but feel sorry for the Trinity of her childhood. Experiences that would've broken anyone else only made her more determined to rise above. Her feelings of low self-worth are evidence that although she survived she didn't escape unscathed. Each time she thought to herself that she wasn't anything but a 'club whore' it broke a piece of my heart.Wrath's love for her just kept surprising me over and over again. I would think I knew how deep his feelings ran then he would say or do something else that expressed an even deeper level of unconditional love. It required unfailing persistence and patience to finally break through the walls she had built to protect herself and truly believe he felt the way he said he did.All of the club brothers surprised me with their love and support of Trinity. All those years she had been living under their protection she never considered she was anything more than a sexual outlet for them. The protective barriers she had erected around her heart didn't allow her to see that they considered her their friend, and more than one admitted to having had stronger feelings for her that went beyond a physical relationship but they didn't think they'd ever have a chance with her so didn't try. Wrath is the one who stood up and fought for her as his girl, even if it was eight years later than it should've been they both just want to put the past behind them and work on their new future.This book takes place along the same timeline as books one through three, so we see the same events we've read about before, just from another viewpoint. The character development in these books is exceedingly complex, even for the supporting characters. I can't wait for Z's story, as well as Murphy, Teller and Heidi's! I'm already passionate about each of them and feel like I know them personally and they've never even been the sole focus of a book yet.This is honestly one of the best MC series I've ever read. If you enjoy a dirty talking, protective and devoted alpha then these are for you!

    This is the fourth book in the Lost Kings MC series and although this can be read independent I would advise to read the previous books as reference to what has happened in those will appear throughout this book. This is Wrath and Trinity’s story which begins eight years prior to the series start and we finally get to see what had happened between this feisty couple which we had had glimpses of in Rock and Hope’s story.The story is unravelled with the back story interwoven to present day so the reader is taken on a journey to understand the complex and frustrating path that Wrath and Trinity have been on. Both are holding back on past issues that have made them hold onto their outer protective shell that can give off conflicting imagery of who they are.Trinity has lead a troubled life but she thought when she met Wrath that day she felt a connection that gave her hope for the future. Wrath felt the same but something happens for that chance of a love to blossom to be firmly pushed back leading to eight years of misunderstandings, hurts and the constant playing against each other to hold onto their selfish pride.This was an in depth and emotive read but I just kept routing for these two to actually sit down and talk to each other. It took a long time and further issues thrown in but once we get to the revelations it was just engrossing to watch all that play out.I have always routed for Trinity. This beautiful and gentle soul who has only ever thought she was raised for one role in her life and to never be able to be loved for who she is. When she felt cast aside by Wrath, my heart just melted for her. I loved how strong she became in this book and showed her true colours and confidence.As for Wrath, well I have always loved this gorgeous, abrupt alpha man. The tough fighter who is also the SAA for the MC (aka The Wrecking Ball!) was underneath a sweet and loving man. When first reading about him in the first books, he comes off as a bit of a bully and antagonistic. But it wasn’t until reading this book from his and Trinity’s POV that you get to see the other side and understand the reason he said this or did that. He wasn’t being a dick when he was saying those things to Hope, he was opening her eyes and making sure she understood what being part of the MC would be for her.The chemistry and passion between Wrath and Trinity was so sensual, erotic and HOT! I found myself having to fan myself down when this man and his clever tongue got going (in more ways than one!) I loved it when Trinity called him by his real name (and no I won’t reveal it here)The secondary characters of the men in the MC were further developed and new ones included. It was good to see more of Teller, Murphy and Z plus meet Ravage, Dex, Sparky and Stash. I also can’t wait for Axel to get his cut!At times I did wonder where the book would take us to as it was a very long storyline to get through (hey we had a lot of years to cover!) but I was a bit surprised by the ending and I was left drooling for more which I guess is a very good way to leave a reader - at a HFN. Happily there are more books to come with further coverage of Wrath, Hope and Rock, oh and I just can’t wait to find out more about the Murphy, Heidi and Axel love triangle! Five LOKI is the best stars!*ARC kindly provided by the author in exchange for an honest review

    I have one word for this book, WOW! I was obsessed with Trinity and Wrath story. Every free moment I had I was reading their story and hoping they could make it work. Trinity and Wrath are two very broken people. They each have suffered abuse at the hands of the people they trusted most. Trinity in particular has suffered through heinous abuse that has left her soul scarred. Trinity has let these scares define who she is, which puts prevents her from having any meaning relationships. When Trinity meets Wrath there is an instant connection and they are two lost souls that found a home in each other. However, Trinity is unable to comprehend that a man could see her as anything more than a toy to be played with and ends up sabotaging this new relationship.Autumn Jones Lake throughout this series, especially in this book has, is a master of showing the beauty in the broken and ugly. Trinity and Wrath are both broken and both have an ugly past but this only defines them if they allow. I loved how this book showed that no matter what a person has been through doesn't mean they are not deserving of love and respect. Wrath surprised me in this book. I wasn't necessary his biggest fan, but after this book I love him. Wrath really has a big heart and the things he did for Trinity in this book had me swooning. The length he went to for Trinity was A-MA-Zing and made me fall in love with him a bit more. I was gifted a book for my honest review.

    Beautiful story about two broken people overcoming their terrible upbringings and changing to be better for one another. I adored both Wrath and Trinity and their struggles. Trinity was flawed, broken and felt she was unworthy. Her story broke my heart. The way Wrath loves her and tries so hard to understand her was nothing short of heroic. Tattered is gritty and a departure from the author's previous books in this series, so be warned.

    Beautiful, honest, raw love story about two damaged people overcoming their shitty pasts to make a bright future together. 5 very bright stars for Wrath and Trinity. I enjoyed their long and rocky road to love very much.Also loved seeing Rock from both Wrath and Trinity's points of view. Author notes at the end are a must read. I love how she talked about who she included certain things in the book even though they were "uncomfortable" and I love how she talks about what the future of the lost kings looks like. I can not recommend this author or this series enough.

    I'm still trying to collect my emotions after reading this book because it threw them all over the place! I will be honest and admit that I got choked up quite a bit while reading Trinity and Wrath’s story. I kept wondering how in the world they ever get their HEA, since they couldn't get their acts straight. One thing is for sure, this book is meaty, showing you different aspects of the MC life they live, and people they interact with. The chemistry between Wrath and Trinity is HOT, sweet, explosive, and sad all at the same time. When you read it you will see what I mean! I loved this story and hope there will be more about the other club members to come. ~ Kara, 4.5 stars

    This book is awesome! I have loved every book in this series but Wrath and Trinity's story is off the chart! These 2 are very damaged souls who need to heal each other but both are stubborn and been hurt! I recommend the entire series but Autumn has achieved a master piece with this book and characters! Make sure you pick up copy of this book!

    I must say this book had me stuck in it from the very first chapter. I never knew I'd like Trinity and Wrath so much, but it works out...really, really great.Trinity and Wrath meet 8 years before, she thought they had something good. He thought she'd be his old lady. What Trinity didn't expect was her past coming back to her haunt her. One phone call changes the next 8 years of her life.Wrath comes back from a run, and finds out Trinity is now a club mama. He's pissed and tries to make her leave not realizing what could happen to her, if she did. He's pissed...she's sad he now thinks she's a whore. What they can't figure out is after 8 years apart, is how to piece back together there relationship. There hearts have been hardened. Past love interests come back to haunt them, and Trinity's past is still hauting her.Like I said I love this book, it's such a great read and if you haven't read the other books in this series you don't have to in order to keep up. I did I loved them too. It's a very lengthy book, and I found myself losing interest. But I had read her previous books, so maybe that has something to do with it. I'm giving her 5 stars!

    Never having read the last 3 Lost Kings books I had no idea what to expect with this book. I love MC stories.Turns out I didn't need to read the last 3 books... this was wonderful.This is Wrath and Trinity's story. It's in 3 parts. It is very long. I so wanted to bash Wrath and Trinity's heads together! Their behaviour drove me mad. I have no idea why men are so stubborn. I lived their lives with them over an 8 year period and am now a member of the LOKIs .When I read the little glossary at the beginning I was a bit daunted, I don't have the best memory and feared I'd have to keep going back and forth to find remind myself of the slang used, but it was very helpful.It didn't seem like a lot of drama happened really, but on the other hand a couple of events had my attention.I was loath to put the book down to deal with real life. Addictive, like reading someones diary.I enjoyed the writing style and would definitely like to read the previous books and the up coming ones of my new family.Definitely recommend

    A Total Must Read!This is my first read by this author. With so many MC romances cropping up I have been a bit wary though some are good, some are so far fetched and unrealistic (me knowing what a real MC is like) that I have somewhat been avoiding them. The blurb for this one sounded so good though and it was recommended by a friend. Then there is the fact that this is fourth in the series and my mind balks at starting a series after the first, but I charged ahead and found myself loving this book. The author has done a great job, her writing is really resounding. I didn't feel at all at a loss at not having read the first 3 in the series although now I am definitely going to be one-clicking the others! I have to admit that the hot tattooed bikers are a definite plus. I mean who doesn't love muscular, tattooed hotties? Then there is Wrath and Trinity, the pair just totally made me swoon. It's a shame about all of this time lost between the pair because of their complete stubbornness, and totally lack of communication and a misunderstanding, but I am a totally sucker for second chances and this one is awesome. I definitely recommend! I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    All I can say is WOW! I have never read a book by Autumn and I am so glad that I read this one. I will definitely be reading the others in this series for sure. She knocked it out of the ball park with this one. I am in LOVE with Wrath and Trinity. I was so hooked on this book that time flew and before I knew it, it was 3 a.m. and I was forced to put it down grudgingly. I don't like spoilers so I won't go into too much detail but you need to pick this book up. It was so, so good.This book is about the relationship between Trinity and Wrath and all the twist and turns that they went through. In the beginning they were going good until Wrath had to go on a run and then things went downhill. She had to move into the clubhouse because her past came knocking and she needed help. Wrath wasn't sure what was going on but was pissed off about it and assumed the wrong thing and never would listen to her and they ended up no longer being together. They lived in the same clubhouse hating and secretly loving each other but neither willing to take the chance to mend the wrongs. Until one day Wrath decides he needs to be close to her again. He has his work cut out for him. This will not be a easy reconciliation that's for sure.Will Wrath get Trinity back? Will they be able to get over all the hurts from their past? Will they learn to trust each other? Will Trinity finally be able to explain to Wrath why she needed to move in there? This is a long and gripping book. You learn bits and pieces about Trinity and Wrath's lives throughout the book, its not just thrown out there. This book has a natural flow to it that makes it feel like it is happening in real life and not just a story you are reading. I could feel all the hurt as if it was happening to me. There were times that I just wanted to punch Wrath in the throat or balls because he pissed me off so bad but I loved him at the same time. If only he would've taken the time to listen. Then again I wanted to shake Trinity for not demanding he listen but as the story progressed I realize why she didn't. Anyways, I'm telling you this is a MUST read!!! Don't miss out on this book.I received and ARC in exchange for an honest review.

    Warning: This is not a "typical" romance. It's not even a typical MC Romance. It is extremely different from the first three books in many ways, but also similar in many ways. Wrath and Trinity's story is a heart-breaking, soul-crushing, tear-your-heart-into-pieces story. It’s intense, raw, frustrating and sometimes dark. It doesn’t happen overnight. It's an epic love story about the irrational things we do when we're younger, the things we do because we don't know any better, maturing, growing, moving past a horrible upbringing to become a better person and most important, forgiveness. Wrath and Trinity grow and mature throughout the book, but not without a lot of hurt, anger, and heartache over the span of eight years. I will say even though Tattered covers a lot of heavy, emotional topics, the author does a good job of lacing humor (sometimes dark) throughout the book, so it's not in any way a depressing read. But I think you have to be a mature adult to understand this book.**May be considered spoilers**Trinity grew up in an abusive Motorcycle Club. The horrors she endured left her with no self-esteem and many emotional scars. But she's strong enough to survive and sweet enough that she wants to help and take care of others. Trinity is portrayed as a realistic sexual abuse survivor. Unfortunately, that means she's not always likeable. You don't understand why she does the things she does and it's easy to label her a "slut". Once you understand why she is the way she is, you want to hug her and kick anyone's ass who talks trash about her. She has sex to feel good about herself because she thinks that's all she has to offer. That message was etched in her soul from a young age. She's not capable of making an emotional connection with her lovers.Enter Wrath. A force of nature. Big, bad, scary. But he recognizes the hurt Trinity carries with her and likes her for who she is. Of course Trinity can't understand that at the time. When old threats surface, she's terrified and she retreats to the behavior she knows. People have categorized it as a mere misunderstanding that pushes Wrath and Trinity apart, but it's more than that. Neither of them are mature enough to handle the much bigger issues ingrained in them. So for eight years they sort of co-exist. They torture each other. They act childish. They are the sum of their upbringings.When Wrath sees how serious his best friend and "big brother" Rock is about Hope, it wakes him up a little. Trinity's the only woman he's ever wanted. When he realizes he's the only one she's ever let her guard down with...it's explosive. But she's still got the heavy baggage of her past. When Wrath finally learns what those issues are (and by the way I wanted to kick Rock at this point-although we had a hint he was involved because he tells Hope in Strength From Loyalty that Wrath and Trinity's issues are partially his fault) he MANS THE FUCK UP and goes after Trinity relentlessly. Not just her body. Her mind and her heart too. He works hard (really hard!) to make her understand she's worth more and means more to him than "a couple of holes to stick [his] dick in." Yes, he's crude, he is after all a biker.Watching Trinity grow and change because of Wrath's love was a beautiful journey. The sex is panty-melting hot. But what was beautiful was seeing Trinity finally make the connection between love, sex and emotion. At one point, she has an a-ha! moment when she's out with Hope and some guy hits on her. Normally she would have just had sex with him, but she knows Wrath's waiting at home for her and she can't wait to go home to him. That was one of my favorite parts because you really saw her growing and changing her mindset there.Tattered is a long, tear-filled journey. Trinity is not magically "healed" by the end. Neither of them are (Wrath has his own emotional scars). But they are committed to working TOGETHER because they love each other. I really hope we get another book about them in the future.I guess my only complaint would be that Trinity never gets therapy of any kind. Her healing all comes at the hands of the hero making her whole again and while that is incredibly romantic, it's not, realistic at all. I think someone as damaged as Trinity would still need counseling and a lot of help to recover fully.But this is fiction, not real life So I still give it 5 beautifully broken stars.

    Ahhh Wrath and Trinity's story is finally here! I've been waiting for this since the minute I finished the last book and these two did not disappoint! Wrath is every bit the hard ass biker with an attitude that we see in the previous books of this series. Trinity is still the girl behind the men...taking care of the club house and the guys themselves. She owns who she is and plays by the same rules as the guys, which was good to see in a female lead. I had several moments where I wanted to reach through my kindle screen and slap the crap out of both Wrath and Trinity and lock them in a room together until they got their shit together. To say emotions ran high in this book would be an understatement. I was hurting right along side them while they tried to one up each other in the heart break department and smiling with them as they overcame roadblocks. Who knew Wrath could have a sweet side? Or that Trinity could be vulnerable while still standing on her own? I also enjoyed seeing more from the other guys and can't wait to see more from this series. Just like the other books in this series, Autumn left us with a "happy for now" ending...leaving the door open for adding more to their story. Have I mentioned I can't wait to read more Lost Kings?**An ARC as provided for my honest review**RachelBestie Book Blogbestiebookblog.com

    FIVE STARS JUST IS NOT ENOUGH FOR THIS AWESOME STORY! I utterly love Wrath & Trinity's journey. To start from when they met and take the amazing ride these two outstanding characters take is just the BESTEST! I loved Wrath from Rock/Hope's stories, but now I flove him so much & Trinity totally endeared herself to me even more in this book. I eagerly await the next book in this series !
