Renegade Reject (Renegade Sons MC #2) by Emily Minton & Dawn Martens

* Special limited edition of Renegade Reject includes the novelette Renegade Wedding. Join Kidd and Jenna as they tie the knot in true biker fashion. 

Daisy “Little Flower” Anderson has lived her entire life on the sidelines of the Renegade Sons MC. Her father is a member, and her mother a club whore turned old lady. Not wanting to follow their footsteps, she chose a different path; one that keeps her close to the biker family she loves, but out of the club. 

Struggling to keep it together, she never thought she would have anything of her own, until she met Preach. He is everything she swore she didn't want in life. One night of passion leads to unexpected consequences, and she knows, now more than ever, it’s time to move forward. 

Garrett “Preach” Austin lived his life caught in his father’s iron fist. He never thought he would want anything more than freedom from his past, until he met his “Little Flower”. She shows him there is more to life than pain. 

Preach has a secret; one that forces him to choose between Daisy and his brothers. Even though he loves Daisy, the Renegade Sons are the only true family he has. He knows he can’t have her, yet he can’t let her go. 

When Daisy moves on, Preach realizes what he’s lost. Can he prove that he’s the man for her, or is he too late?

My life has been one of physical and emotional abuse for as long as I can remember.  My father is a self-proclaimed preacher and his family is expected to be perfect.  When we are not punishment is handed out without thought of the pain inflicted.  I have tried to protect my mother and little sister from the beatings but it only seems to make it worse.  It finally comes to a head when I cannot stop myself from fighting back and am arrested for assault and I find my eighteen year old self thrown in jail.  That’s where I meet Kidd and my life finds a new direction.

After a while I realized that my life in Illinois was over.  That’s when I headed to Big Clifty and looked up Kidd.  We spent three days together sharing a cell, and I was lucky enough to call him a friend before he was bailed out.  His friendship and connections were the only things that kept me safe in prison.

Finally I am made an official member of the Renegade MC.  One my brothers ask if I want to take a ride to pick up Maker’s daughter, Little Flower, from her job.  When we arrive she is fighting off a group of boys that are trying to rape her.  Timber and I rescue her and I am told to take care of Maker’s little girl while Timber takes care of the four idiots that tried to hurt her.

Without thinking of the ramifications, I blurt out the truth, “They were going to take me to the alley and rape me."

When he asks me what my name is I am so stunned that I can’t respond at first.  He is the most beautiful man that I have ever seen.  I finally tell him my name is Daisy and he tells me to get on his bike and he will get me home.  I tell him I’m almost eighteen and he gives me a look that says he can’t believe it.

He continues to stare at me, causing me to blush again.  “It’ll be a long fuckin’ two months, “he mumbles and then motions for me to come closer.

My mother hates me and my father is a drunk.  The only saving grace is my Gram and Gramps.  They love me and I can always depend on them.  My Gram is helping me save my wages because my mother will take it if she finds it.  I want to buy a car so I will have a way to get to work and home without waiting for my dad to remember me.  Preach has started picking me up from work so that I want be stranded again.  I go with him to visit another club and while we are there he lets everyone know that I am claimed.

“She’s only seventeen.  Gotta wait ‘til her birthday to brand her.”

I have to wait to claim Daisy until she is eighteen and everyone is warning me of the consequences if I touch her before then.  Her mother and father don’t even remember her graduation!  Things are all in line for me to claim her as my own when I get drunk and one of the club whores goes down on me.  Little do I know that this is Daisy’s BFF, but she really isn’t?  She just wants to hurt Daisy and get claimed by a brother. This is the beginning of my troubles with trying to win Daisy.  Will I be able to convince her that I am the man for her or will I lose her to someone else?  I have a feeling it want be easy.

“We didn’t have sex.”  Instead of reassuring her, my words seem to make her angrier.  “Okay, let me be more precise.  Did you let Leah suck your dick?”
