~Review: Precarious (Jokers' Wrath MC #1) by Bella Jewel~

In darkness, we find danger. In danger, I find Beau.

Ash is a prison guard, she's tough, she's strong and she never backs away from a fight. She takes her job seriously, she takes her training seriously, and everything in her life goes as planned.

Until the day he is brought into the prison. 

She'll never forget meeting Beau 'Krypt' Dawson for the first time. She'll never forget his haunted eyes and his numb expression. He's a member of the Jokers Wrath MC and it is said he killed an innocent family in the middle of a cafe, in cold blood. 

Deranged. Crazy. Psychotic.
All those words describe the infamous Krypt, but Ash suspects there's far more to the quiet man than meets the eye. Secrets are being hidden by the club, information is being kept under wraps. Krypt is silent for a reason. 

Ash is desperate to know that reason. 

Continually fighting, Krypt is transferred to a high security prison. Ash is in charge. She's always prepared, always alert. Not even her skills will stop the club from ambushing them and taking back Krypt. Only Ash ends up right in the middle of it. 
They take her, too.

Now she's stuck with a Motorcycle Club who are tougher than any prisoner she's ever laid eyes on. And they won't let her go. She's too much of a risk. Until the situation can be sorted, they send her and Krypt into the mountains together....alone. 
An epic, dangerous love will be built on the foundations of darkness.

Overall Rating:  4 Rockin’ ★★★★

Precarious is the first book in author Bella Jewel's new series Jokers' Wrath MC.  This author continues to elevate her books to a new level.  The book ensares you from the beginning and continues to build throughout the story.  

Ash is a correctional officer at a prison.  She may be small and a woman but she’s become known as a bad ass.  The prisoners have given her the name ‘Wildcard’ because of her fierceness and fairness.  Ash takes her job seriously and respects the rules.  She begins to suspect that something sinister is happening at the prison and that everything that she thought was true may not be!  When a new prisoner arrives, Ash begins to think that some of the guards that she had trusted were stepping outside the law.  The moment Ash saw Beau for the first time she was stunned, he was the total package for a bad boy.  He was so unbelievably beautiful; he took her breath away and made her tingle.  When things begin to happen to Beau that could be attributed to her colleagues, Ash starts to pay attention to everything going on around her.  How can a video surveillance camera go down without help from someone inside? Why is Tristain pushing to move Beau to a maximum security prison?
Beau is the Vice President of the Joker’s Wrath MC.  He has been arrested and imprisoned for the murder of four innocent people at a restaurant; the four were family members of a billionaire named Johan Reed. When Beau arrives at the prison he meets Ash, one of the guards assigned to his section.  He tries to warn Ash to watch the other guards and that it may not be safe for her.  When she is asked to accompany the transfer, warning bells begin to go off in her mind.  Someone is behind this push to transfer Beau, but who? The transport is ambushed by Beau’s MC, but the guards with her start firing on them and hold a gun on her.  This was a set up but the wrong MC arrived first!  Ash is the only survivor and only because Beau tells his club that she is an innocent. 

Overall, this novel was raw, gritty and arousing in a dark foreboding manner.  The author delves into the life of a motorcycle club where the mantra is anything goes.  The two main characters battle for dominance and love while fighting to survive their enemies constant attacks.  

Hero –Beau ‘Krypt’ Dawson: 4 stars
Heroine –Ash: 4 stars
