Fallon Richardson can’t stand a man’s touch. Ever since her mother left her when she was a young girl, she’s been living in hell. Her father is the kingpin in illegal underground fighting. She tries to make herself inconspicuous so the men won’t notice her and the women won’t make fun of her, but it never works. She hates being at the fights, but her father demands her presence. Then she sees him across the room. His penetrating stare pulls her in no matter how hard she resists. The tall, muscled man stirs feelings in her she has shut off for years. Her body wants him, yet, she can’t give herself to him. Men are cruel, animalistic, and not to be trusted. But the tattooed man has a softness beneath his rough exterior that speaks to her. Then shadows from years ago emerge from the darkness, and soon Fallon doesn’t know who to trust. Her world is turned upside down, and she fears not only for her sanity but for her life. Can Diablo and Fallon gain each other’s trust in time for him to protect her? The Night Rebels MC series are standalone gritty romance novels. DIABLO is Book Three in the series. This book contains violence, strong language, sexual assault (not graphic), and steamy/graphic sexual scenes. It describes the life and actions of an outlaw motorcycle club. HEA. No cliffhangers. 18+.
Diablo doesn't have difficulty getting women, they seem to throw themselves at him all the time. Of course, as a member of the Night Rebels MC, he knows most just want to sleep with him because of the patch. He doesn't have a lot of trust in anyone outside of the club and he's not looking to settle down anytime soon. All that changes with one glance at Fallon, daughter of the jerk who runs the Underground Fighting Ring he's employed at.
Fallon is different than other women he meets. She's as broken as he is and he knows she's worth getting to know. He doesn't see what others see when he looks at her. They try to beat her down, they prey on her insecurities and hurt her anyway they can. Diablo wants to show her she deserves more and that she's special.
Before they can get their "Happily Ever After" Fallon will have to learn how to stand on her own. But not everyone wants her to be happy, there are plans for her in motion and her newfound independence and relationship is ruining things.
What I Loved: Diablo is a good guy. He's sweet yet not a complete wimp, he's still got that Alpha Biker feel to him. He's not a huge misogynistic manwhore like so many of the other brothers. I loved reading about a guy who doesn't treat the woman he's with like dirt. Too many times the men are jerks and I end up hating them and wondering why the women are with them. Diablo was lovable from beginning to end.
What I Liked: I really liked that their relationship moves pretty naturally and while not slow it's not instant either.
What I Didn't Like: I absolutely can not stand characters that are so stupid they don't think about possible consequences of their actions when dealing with the villain in a story. Whether out of naïveté or thinking that nothing would happen to them, I just want to shake them while screaming "Shut up! You're going to get yourself killed!"
So obviously you get the hint that there is a villain and Fallon ends up in the person's crosshairs. Instead of playing her cards close to the chest, she reveals what she knows over the phone. Now, first, this is a stupid move, has she never read a book or watched tv or a movie? *Bangs head on wall*
Second, don't you think you need to go to the cops about it? Ugh!
Okay, so basically, I think it's obvious that I was not Fallon's biggest fan. I found her a weird combination of innocent, sheltered, wallflower and fake. Her constant anxiety attacks got on my nerves (which as a person who suffers from PTSD and anxiety, I never thought I'd say that). She seemed to suffer them constantly but as the ol' lady of a biker it just didn't work for me.

Chiah Wilder is the author of Hawk’s Property, the first book in the Insurgents MC Series. It is a full length, standalone novel. Its release date is set for October 27, 2015.
Always a lover of books, she began writing at a young age and continued through college with collections of short stories. Figuring she had to grow up and get a “real” job, her writing was placed on the back burner.
Her love of reading has always be center front in her life. Chiah’s love of bad boys both in and out of fiction has inspired her Insurgents series. She loves an alpha male whose softer side is brought out by a passionate, spirited woman. In fiction there are no rules or boundaries, and fantasies can go as far as the characters want to take them. Steamy, biker romances with rough, sexy bad boys are her guilty pleasure along with brownies, cheddar cheese, and movie marathons.
Returning to writing has been a dream come true. Writing and publishing Hawk’s Property has been an amazing journey, and she is happy to share the Insurgents family with her readers. She is busy writing her next book in the series.
