Three things Jesse Carter has lost. A former Marine, Jesse used to stand proud of his achievements and live by the code. But when circumstance made him question everything he believed in, those most basic values didn’t feel so important after all.

Knights Rebels.

Three things Jesse Carter has found. Reborn into a brotherhood not so different from the one he left behind, Jesse finds it all too easy to block out his past and claim the role as the Rebels' fun loving player.
Until he meets Bell.

Shy, awkward, and with troubles of her own, Bell Johnson's no stranger to hiding her pain. When Jesse forces himself into her life, she’s at risk of her defences crumbling.

Does Bell have the strength to survive Jesse and his demons or is she fated to become another casualty in the self- destruction of Jesse Carter?

My Review

River Savage's "Desertion" is the amazing #3 in the Knights Rebels MC series! Very tasty! The elevator scene - OMG! The very best MC series out there! Every time I'm just about to give up on reading MC books, I read another River Savage and renew my faith in MC books! Amazing! Keep 'em coming, lady! I can't wait to read more and I have "Paradox" on my TBR!

5 out of 5 stars


I wake up to the heat of someone’s palm against my shoulder. Twisting around, my hand moves faster than my brain, and I snatch it off me.

“Jesse, it’s me, Bell,” she rushes out before I can take it any further.

“Fuck.” I release my grip on her arm and sit up, forcing myself back to the here and now.

“Did I hurt you?” I reach for her searching for any sign of a mark left by me.

“It’s fine. You barely touched me.” She holds her arm out letting me inspect it. I check it over one more time before releasing her and relaxing.

“You wanna talk about it?” I study her face, eyes calm, soft mouth. She’s not freaking out.

“Just some shit that visits my dreams sometimes, nothing that needs to touch you,” I reply, shocked I’m not retreating.

“I don’t mind, Jesse,” she pushes, and I almost cave. Almost.

“The last thing I want to do is talk about this shit, Bell.” She doesn’t argue or press, and I’m grateful for it. I don’t think I’d be able to keep my cool if she did.

“Come back to sleep.” She lies back down and I follow her. She doesn’t ask me any more questions, or make me feel like I need to tell her everything.

“That ever happens again, don’t wake me,” I warn. A menacing thought strikes through me picturing what could have happened if I didn’t wake in time. She’s lucky I didn’t hurt her, like the last time a woman touched me while I had a nightmare.

“You don’t always have to be so brave, Jesse.” Her hand moves to my dog tags. I don’t stop her. I’m starting to like the feeling of her hands touching them.

“Never tried to be, Bell. But talking doesn’t help me. Never has.” I think back to the time when I did try and it forced me out of control. Talking about those triggers only amplified my insecurities. When death sits afar, mocking you in the dangerous confines of your surroundings, it fucks with your head; nothing was going to change it.

Besides, my issues weren’t what I had done. They were what I had survived. My conscience wasn’t clear and my honor wasn’t clean.

“Promise me you won’t touch me.” I keep my tone even, controlled.

“I promise.” I take her hand in mine and bring it to my lips. Maybe one day I will let someone in. Let her in.

Today isn’t that day.

But today, I didn’t push her away.

That has to count for something.

Just in case you missed it, here's my review of #1:
River Savage’s “Incandescent” is a page-turning hawt biker book. Right up there with Jaci Burton’s “Wild Riders” series. I love the characters and the feel of the club and clubhouse. Sometimes I wish I could run away and become a biker chick. Kadence, the leading lady, is so real and lovable. And Nix, well, he’s super yummy biker boyfriend material. My only small problem is that I also read Kresley Cole and every time I saw Nix’s name, all I could think of was Nucking Futs Nix!

Here's my review for #2:
River Savage’s “Affliction,” the second story in the Knights Rebels MC series, is another amazing motorcycle club romance novel. When I read “Incandescent,” I kept wondering what Sy’s story was and this novel lets us know the reasons that Sy is the way that he is. Holly, the leading lady, has about the worst luck in the world – she goes through a lot in both this book and in #1. Perfect story if you love a gruff biker guy who’s hiding a soft broken heart. Sometimes, all it takes is three little words to turn your world upside down. Sy and Holly’s story feels very true to life and it’s sweet while being on the hot erotic biker book edge as well.

Here's my review for "Reclaimed":
River Savage's "Reclaimed" is a short story that fits as tale 2.5 in her Knights Rebels MC series. I think this one has a few more laughs and is a bit more light-hearted than the last story, "Affliction," was. This is the continuation of Nix and Kadence's story. I just love the characters - I would probably read anything about Nix - he could be flossing his teeth for half the book and I'd still read it! As always with River Savage, the sexy scenes are hawt! It's a quick read and you don't want to miss it if you plan to read any more in the Nix/Kadence/Sy/Holly/etc. universe.
