Book Review. Fabulous 5 star read

“No. NO! This isn’t how it was supposed to end… She’s my reward dammit. SHE’S MY REWARD!”
Washed in Blood, (Heaven’s Guardians MC,#1) Debut Novel by Ashley Lane
Kindle Edition. Purchased, Amazon UK
released 27th June 2019
Blinded by anger, the man who had sworn to protect me,
shot me in a fit of rage when I was only sixteen years old.
He thought he killed me.
But my job wasn’t finished yet.
My days are spent as President of the Heavens Guardians MC.
Nights are spent searching for the scum of the earth.
Rapists, Murderers, Paedophiles.
They all answer to me.
I thought I’d seen it all.
Thought my heart couldn’t be any darker.
Thought I knew exactly how far I was willing to go.
Then a battered and broken woman was found behind our clubhouse,
and I realised, I’ve never had a clue about the monster that lurks within.
They may call me Priest,
but I’d sell my soul to the devil before I let anything take her away from me.


This was everything I expect and more from a good MC book. For a debut Lane’s writing dare I say it flawless there were no mistakes, and the way her cast of bikers are portrayed with flaws and horrific pasts, they growl and snap and snarl. I literally have not been able to put this book down . This is Priest and Willow’s story. which is told in both ‘POV’ which I love , Willow has had such a tragic life and at such a young age, when you think, things can’t get any worse for her, they do, boy do they she witnesses something that threatens her future even more. When she is holding on to life by her sheer determination and will to succeed yet be in desperate need of help. I was shouting out for her. I loved Willow, Ashley’s writing has you feeling all the emotions, her desperation, her fear her sheer need for someone to help, yet its just one event after another, my heart broke for her. Ashley has ripped my guts out, I have shed tears, I have cursed and cringed, I have been on an emotional Journey of epic proportions reading this. I loved it, can not express enough how much I loved it. Priest aka (KING) what can I say, he is my new Knight in tarnished armour, he is a tortured soul, secrets from a past that he is trying to forget but he keeps reliving the moments in his mind, the opening few pages, were with him, I felt like a rung out towel, he carries his guilt like an invisible force field constantly. When Priest comes across Willow for the first time, he turns into this snarling cursing monster, protecting his prey, not realising she is about to upend his world , secrets will be told, events will unfold which will take your breath away, like a roller coaster ride. Yet again his life so sad. I adore books that take my emotions and just shred them , It is an ‘Inst- love’ romance, but with a big difference, Some might think it’s corny, I didn’t, Just the opening few chapters had me hooked, It has taken me 3 hours to read this, I haven’t moved from my chair.

 Willow’s haunted blue eyes come to me, her voice toneless and robotic when she speaks. “I belong to him. He is Master of my body, and I am his to control. He gave me life and he shall also take it. The beat of my heart rests in his hands.” 

I do believe in God its a personal faith not necessary for me to go to church to express my faith or to prove it, but in the same frame to believe in one must also mean you believe in the other the Devil himself, which I do. I won’t go too much into the plot as this is a relatively new release, my advice just get it, you won’t regret it, It does go into some pretty heavy material, abuse, trafficking, drug abuse, There are scenes that will make you cringe. Not to bad, I have read worse, but best be warned if you have triggers. With this MC You are pulled through a mire of emotions and it is totally different to anything I have read, These bikers are tough fuckers !! They are Hero’s in Leather, all have a story to tell, and you just know that they are going to mangle what’s left of your feelings, but if this is the start of lane’s career, I can not wait for more.
They take out the bad guys, vigilantes I suppose, but they take out people who don’t deserve to live, are you judge, jury and executioner, could you be if you had too, or would you WANT TO be. To right the wrongs. To take the sinner and make them pay. Life is precious, you get one shot, so the evil among us need stopping.
Final thoughts on this book, PHENOMENAL, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED 5 STAR READ. Full of Tension, angst galore, brutal events to take your breath away, So much sadness but with that comes hope, as well as love and loyalty to make this as far as I’m concerned the start of a breath taking NEW MC. that you just know is going to be Epic. Each character: Patch, Bullet, Angel, and Demon will get to tell their own stories in future books and I really cannot wait to get to know them better and find out what’

Sex trafficking is nothing like it can be portrayed to be in the movies. Big wigs in Hollywood like to put a spin on the evil things in the world, making them seem desirable. They show girls being bid on by rich men in expensive suits with forbidden tastes. Lies of them being sold into lives of luxury where they’ll be lavished with the world’s finest things.Real life isn’t so fucking peachy. These girls aren’t being rescued from their drab lives, and they sure as hell aren’t being sold to their very own prince charming.

“What can wash away my sins? Nothing but the blood…Nothing but the blood of Jesus. What can make me whole again? Nothing but the blood…” I drop my head and let the tears flow into her hair. “Nothing but her blood.”
