    TITLE: DESERVEDSERIES: (Satan's Rebels MC #3)AUTHOR: Kira JohnsGENRE: Dark | Contemporary RomancePUBLISHED: October 10th 2014MY RATING: ★★★★★I'm having an Author Kira Johns marathon and reading this series back to back for the second time around, if you are into hardcore gritty biker books that know no boundaries, it's dark, it's raw, it's emotional, and with hot alpha males then this series is for you!!Once you start this series you won't be able to put it down, it's highly addictive, highly emotional and highly recommended!!Five years after leaving Rockingham, Jade Moore is still trying to move on from the death of Viper..This book like with the previous ones before starts off right where the other ended, Jade has moved away, left all that she loved and knew, started a new life and new job and new relationship..When Viper died, a part of me died along with him, that missing piece could never be replaced.Don't get lulled into a false sense of security because the new man in her life isn't what he seems, he's a sadistic asshole with a vendetta..But like all assholes he gets what's coming to him!!Since jade left 5 years ago Shadows life he's half the man that he used to be and has reverted back to his old ways of boozing and whoring..When I learned that Shadow had gotten married six months after I had left, I had been devastated.When the past collides with the present, Shadow fears he will lose Jade forever.Jade on numerous occasions has that eerie feeling of being watched.I was constantly feeling as though someone was watching e, whoever it was obviously meant me no harm and it was some how soothing knowing someone was out there watching over me, I envisioned it being Viper acting as my guardian angel because he would be the only one who could pull something like that off and leave me protected.BACK FROM THE DEADHEARTS ENTWINEDEven though it reads like a love triangle it's not really (not in my eyes anyways) she loved one man as a best friend but she was in love with the other heart and soul..I loved how it all panned out..This book over all the others within this series is aboutLOVE, LUST and most importantly FORGIVENESS..Onto the next book I go!!

    5 Awesome, Frustrating but beautiful stars!!!Damn where do I even start? This series was one of the best Biker series I have read so far. The author did an amazing job, the story line was excellent Heartbreaking at times, steamy and also adorable but also very mush fucked. I fell in love with the main characters in Book 1 and I still love them all in book 3. I must admit that in book 1 I didn't know what to expect but the book ended and I was so relieved that I had book 2 handy. Book 2 broke my heart in so many ways I cried for Jade and Viper and even Shadow too although I could have kicked Shadows ass seven ways to Sunday, LOL. I must admit I did not know what to expect in Book 3 .The beginning of this book was really sad, I thought that I was gonna cry the whole damn book through. At times I wanted to through the damn book cause I was just so pissed that Jade was going through so much on her own. The book progressed and I had been expecting one outcome and had a WHOLE LOT OF WTF! moments. Then just when I thought I had it figured out BAM, the author shocked the shit out of me. I must admit though that I was very surprised at the turn of events but can honestly say the outcome was what I really wanted. This is the longest review I have ever written and I can honestly say that it is because I really loved this series. I am also very happy to hear that some of my other favourite characters will be getting their own books. Cant wait for that!!!

    Absolutely ridiculous.Unusually for me I didn't read the synopsis or the reviews before starting this book, I was still reeling from the last one and totally committed to this series so I didn't see the point.After the events of the previous book Jade has packed up and moved on, she's starting a fresh life for herself and Blake but of course things can't run smoothly and Jade gets the news we've been waiting for since the end of the last this brings me to a huge déjà vu moment, as soon as it started with this I knew exactly how it was going to turn out and while it's not like me to read a book out of order it's not unheard of, so I checked back through all the sites I use and I couldn't find this book anywhere else, then I noticed the publication date 10 Oct 2014, which with hindsight I should have checked first, so I'd not read this before. It was still bothering me so I checked the authors other books incase it's a thread she's used before but unless she writes under a different name these are the only books I found.I continued on, Shadow is married to Brandi but it's not a happy marriage he realises he screwed up with Jade and living in misery is his self inflicted punishment but then events spiral and Jade finds herself back at the compound and back in Shadows life...and again with the déjà vu, Brandi, I knew exactly how she was going to be and literally what her next move would be and this is really spoiling this book for me now since this part is obviously straight from another book.I'm wondering at this point if I should just quit but the previous book was so good that I make the mistake of continuing on.The book then becomes ridiculous and I'm thinking that this can't be written by the same author, yes the other books have been far fetched and silly in places but this is in a whole different league. I don't watch soaps at all but this is how I imagine a truly bad soap story would go and I'm done, I read to the end but that's me finished no more books by this author this was just stupid.

    Deserved begins five years after Destined, when Jade leaves Rockingham. Life has changed for Jade and Shadow. Both have moved on with their lives but are not completely happy. Jade hasn’t spoken to Shadow since she left but when tragedy happens, she is forced back into the life of the MC. Jade shows that she is a strong character in the face of everything she goes through. She lost the man she loved and also her friend. She comes back, not weak but stronger that before. I love Jade’s character and wish more female leads were written like her.Shadow is a martyr. He feels that he has to be miserable because of the way he treated Jade. So his life for the past five years has not been pleasant. That could be to the new addition of Brandi. He stays with her because he feels he has too due to how he treated Jade. Shadow is a good character. I like him with Jade but I don’t think that they are destined to be together.Ms. Johns throws a twist in this book. I suspected this may happen but was not sure it would. The world at the MC is completely rocked with the revelation. I won’t tell what it is though. ;)Johns is a fantastic writer. She draws the reader into the book from the beginning. Her writing is similar to that of AC Bextor. Johns does multiple POV’s in her books but does not make it confusing to the reader. This book is a definite recommend. I strongly urge the reader to start from the first book, Destroyed, to truly understand Jade and Shadow’s story. This book series is for readers 18+ due to violence and sexy scenes.

    Ohhhh ma god!!!!!!!!!no joke I have melted in to a big fat puddle of love!!!!!so much love for this book it's unreal, I don't think It could have been anymore perfect.. (sigh) so for obvious reason I'm not going into detail.. now I know it's a pain in the arse when people say that cause it makes me pissed when I read a review for spoilers and there's nada!!! but take some friendly advise of a nosy impatient cow herself thats telling you, knowing any spoiler/details would totally ruin it! I was over come by so many emotions in this book I'm surprised my poor brain didn't go into shock lol! The final chapter of jades story is complete and it couldn't have been written any better, kira John's has written a master piece full of emotion&suspens and I'm sad to see it finished.. well at least jades story although I don't think it's the last well read of her she was a fab character! loved the characters on this book Infact and will definitely re-reading them again soon! hope there's another book out continuing with the to two who may not be named... because it's a huge spoiler! I would love to read about there story (: so obviously I'm going to recommend it cause it was amazeballs and if you've read the First 2 you'll want to anyway but if not give them ago you won't regret it! xo

    Good book but I freaking HATE love triangles. I really really wanted to hate Jade...but she thought Viper was dead and was only trying to move on...but dammit did I want to hate her for going after Shadow. I also didn't like that fact that she was stringing two guys along. You knew she was completely in love with Viper but was selfish to keep Shadow along for the ride because she didnt want to hurt him. And Shadow....don't even get me started on that man. He disgusts me. He knew Viper was alive and that Jade would 100% be with him if she knew and then Shadow goes and fucks her anyway!!!!! How low do you have to get, to be that desperate to fuck someone you know wouldn't be with you just to have them one last time. And WTF Jade...I swear that bitch doesn't believe in condoms at all. Why the fuck is she screwing everyone raw dog...I mean Jesus!!!!! The last thing that pissed me off was how Shadow was made to look like the bigger man...stepping aside. I dunno...that just sat with me the wrong way. Viper was the more amazing hero and I really think he got the short end of the stick in that department. I dunno....I liked the book...I really did...but I guess because it was a love triangle that I have my hackles up...but then like I said before I want to hate Jade but cant because she didn't even know she was in a love triangle...dammit I so freaking confused.

    Redemption!Jade have been thou so much and still a strong woman. Five years away and tough life with children until a bad guy go to far, jade needs her MC family so she is back and Shadow finds out a secret, for being her best friend he says some means things to her and it like I forgive you from her. But Shadow does love her, to much and she loves him but there that part of her heart for Viper. Things are going good when a surprise from the past shows up. But what I don't understand is jade has not had sex with shadow in years but the night that shadow finds out Viper is not dead he lets her have sex with him, a good man would wait for her to choose, did not like that. But in the end he does a great thing and give her up, redemption for him and Viper! Great story!

    I don't even know where to start with this review. I was so overwhelmed with this book...with all three really. The emotions I had while reading these books are some that I haven't felt while reading in a long long time. To say I enjoyed this series so far is a huge understatement. I can't write a review of this book without giving the story away. It is something that must be read and felt with no hints or spoilers. I am in love with the way this author tells a story, the connection I feel with the characters is so real it hurts. This to me is the works of a great story teller, a great author. I am looking forward to the next book in this series!

    2019-05-11 23:17 stars. The finale of an emotional rollercoaster from a beautiful adoring couple. First book, Second Book and This third book was wrapped to a beautiful story. I loved every Alpha Male in this MC Club. The love, the passion, the revenge. Every chapter had me edgy, I was all over emotionally. How strong Jade stay, she has endure so much in her life. So much to be said, but words can't come out because I do not want to spoil it for others. Bravo to the Author, you made your character come to life with your words. Amazing!!!

    Not the HEA I hoped for. It was all so messed up and there was so much BS storyline that made other two books cheap and pointless. Not to mention such a huge effort to play up the history and love between Shadow and Jade then all of a sudden, their so-called love wasn't really all that. They were best buds. BS. I know I'm in the minority's but seriously, a twin brother had cancer and pretended to be Viper. Just dumb. I knew I should've read Crush by JC Emery first, now I feel like I just wasted time.

    I AM SO OVERWHELMED!I seriously cannot deal with all these emotions! I wish there was an in between as it wasn't 4 but yet not a 3 it was in the middle. On the bad side:-Everything seemed rushed.I think to much happened and it was all crammed into a small part. Like a few big moments happened in the first half then it dragged and nothing happened in the middle but then it exploded at the end. I would prefer a build up to the end or a consistent amount of drama throughout. -The Love TriangleThis was so annoying! It felt as if it was constantly being repeated and nobody would leave it alone. It was almost as if the whole book was revolved around the romance and the drama and anticipation was pushed aside. I AM SOOOOO TEAM VIPER! Shadow was so annoying. He couldn't make his mind up. Some points he just wanted to be friends but then suddenly hes all in love with Jade. And his bitch of a wife wound me up so much. She was grade A bitch with a capital B. Finally, SPOILER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Vipers return seemed a bit sudden and not thought out properly. I give Kira a thumbs up for the drama factor but i felt we needed a bit more tension between Shadow and Viper. Shadow just handing Jade over to Viper seemed a bit unrealistic even though it was kinda cute.On the good side:- BETHANY AND BLAKEOmg they made my heart melt. They were so cute and Blake was such a good character. I hope we get a story about him soon, i just know that he will end up a such a sexy panty dropper of a man.-Jade finally got her happy ending. I am so happy about this. She has been through so much shit i'm suprised she hasn't gone batshit crazy. She deserved it.Overall it was a good book and i will read the others out of pure curiosity. But it was an amazing book besides the few errors.

    I knew that when I read the first two books in this series, Destroyed and Destined, that I would have to jump on this as soon as it was released. It is a must that you read book one and book two before reading this one because each book is a continuation of the previous one.In Deserved, it is now five years later and Jade is a single mom making it on her own until circumstances changed and she is forced to move back to the Satan’s Rebels MC. The club takes her under their wing to protect her and keep her safe. While there, she runs back into Shadow, who has been married since she left. My heart really broke for him because since he let Jade slip through his fingers again, he had an unhappy marriage but felt that he deserved to be unhappy after what he had done to her.Jade is yet again one tough woman in this final book and I really admire Kira for giving this female character such strength in a book. If you have read book one and book two, then you know that this poor girl has been through pure hell. Well, it’s not over in this one and when her past comes into her present, it really blew me away and left me speechless. As secrets unfold, will Jade and Shadow find their way to each other? Hmm, I will never tell but I must say I really loved this series. The secrets will surprise you!!

    The author warns at the end of the 2nd book everything is not always as it appears! She was not lying!!! I can't say to much about the story or it will give away things that you can't know until they happen or it ruins it for you.Oh my gosh I loved this ending, I was worried about Shadow and Jade and what would happen and the end Kira gave us is exactly the ending I was hoping for. My only issue is that Jade suffered so much even to the very end, in my mind that is hard to understand how one person could go through so much in a short time and I realize it made the story, but I am not sure she needed all the things happen to her that did in order to make this story as good as it was, especially at the end there was still drama. I guess this good be why I loved it so much.The H was a true H and I loved that he made it clear he would do anything for his h and did. I know she wrote she is going to do a book on Tank and a few others! Can't wait!!!!

    It is no secret that this author is very talented and it is noticeable in her writing.Kira has done it again! I have never read any other MC series that had my emotions all over the place. The Satan's Rebels series will have you feel every emotion possible whether you are happy, sad, laughing, or crying. Kira is a strong writer who keeps everything interesting so you don't want to put the book down and at the same time has you feeling exactly what the character is feeling. This  book is another emotional journey and I swear I just sat there thinking can poor Jade catch a break?! She is the strongest female character ever that has developed and grown emotionally since book one. Now I will not leave any spoilers because if I had to read this amazing book to get the surprise of my life you should too! There isn't one dull moment because once you think things are starting to calm down and suddenly BAMM something else happens.

    After the train wreck of the second book - lets just say that 8 years of apparently staying away for someone's protection seemed pointless when that someone still managed to get left behind by her so called best friend, leaves behind the only family she knows when she is still vulnerable only to meet someone who beats, mistreats and alienates her from her family as well as comes close to killing her. I mean what was the point of staying away to protect her when staying would have been a whole lot easier?As a plot device it was so "Dallas" it's a wonder she didn't wake up and it was all a dream!Mind you the writer is still easy to read, great character development and pacing. Just can't believe how poor Jade never seemed to be able to breathe how can so many people want to kill and hurt her all the time and be surrounded by men who apparently love her but are unable to keep her looked after? She struggled so much ..... I guess you can safely say she earned her HEA !!

    didnt think these books could get any better but they just did , so many twists & turns even i had hard time keeping up . if you havent read book 2 dont look any further .poor jade is just getting over the death of viper& starts letting shadow into her life , typically after they sleep together he finds her giving spike a cuddle , gets the wrong end of the stick & throws his toys out the pram .jade knows satans rebels need shadow so to stop any unrest in the club she decides to move away with her son for a fresh start . as usual trouble has a way of finding her & it does with devastating consequences .after moving back to the satans rebels compound the shocks just keep on coming , she meets shadows wife & theres no love lost there & a blast from the past shocks everyone when they show up . wanted to write so much more but that would give too many spoilers away . onto to book 4 can't wait to see what it brings

    Okay so I have never written a review for a book before and I have read far too many books to count. However, this book I felt needed justice. I was taken on a roller-coaster ride from the beginning. The story between the main characters was heartbreaking and at the same time you could see the connection between all of them. I won't lie and say this was not a hard book to read as it was... I was in tears for hours, something I never do. So if you are looking for a MC book with a twist that is different and not the same blab then this is the series for you. I won't say anymore as everyone must decide for themselves. This is a short review of all the books in the series and I look forward to reading more books from Kira. It is hard to wow me because I read too much but this series left me speechless.

    Outstanding story!!This is my favorite book of this Demon Rider MC, so much happens in this book. It's emotional, riveting, suspenseful, sexy, hot, with a strong sense of family. Jade has suffered so much when her uncle/president of club turned her over to a rival club. She meets Viper, when he rescues her and they have that soul reaching attraction that builds to love. Shadow-her friend who loves each other plays a strong part in her life in/around the time they all believe that Viper succumbs to cancer. Jade tries to do her best always protecting her kids, she is stronger then even she realizes. Then she finds out that Viper is alive, the man she cared for through his illness being his twin. She is angry, upset, and so hurt. Will they work through the lies, and realize what they have? This book is excellent-definitely a 10.

    I saved my review from the other two books and placed it here, since the fourth is more about Shadow's journey. All I can say about Kira's books is "HOLY CRAP...WHAT A FREAKIN' RIDE!!!" Jade is one amazing character. She suffered through what no woman should experience. I'm talking pure hell for years. She finds her strength and fights her demons, falling for the man who helped her. Without going into it all, so I don't give anything away, all I'm going to say about these books is that if you enjoy reading biker series, you need to read this one. I'm not going to lie, you will feel like you were on an emotional rollercoaster, no doubt, Kira makes you feel everything while you are reading, but is is sooooo damn worth it. This is by far, my favorite series I've read in a long time. Jade is the best character I have ever read about....EVER!!!!
