He’s hell on wheels and she’s the one who got away.  Sinner’s Steel, the third novel in the Sinner’s Motorcycle Club series is a vivid and powerful MC romance from Sarah Castille.  Fans of Joanna Wylde and Kristen Ashley’s biker romances will love this intense, rough and raw addition to the Sinner's Motorcycle Club series.
Tall, dark, and dangerously handsome, Zane “Tracker” Colter is the strong, silent type of tattooed muscle biker who drives women wild. But as a master of strategy for the outlaw MC club, Sinner’s Tribe, he doesn’t have time to play around with groupies and biker chicks-especially when he can’t stop thinking about Evie, the girl who got away…
Evie’s been in love with Zane ever since they were children-until he broke her heart and disappeared. Now he’s back in her life, bigger and badder than ever. Zane is stunned by how beautiful and confident Evie’s become, using her artistic talent to customize motorcycles. He wants her so bad, he’d ride through fire to win her back. There’s one problem: Evie is dating his deadliest rival-the leader of the Black Jacks-and if Evie and Zane hook up, there’ll be hell to pay…


Sparky’s shop shook with the hard beat of metal music, the thud of the bass carrying up the stairs where Evie had just put Ty to bed before changing for the party. She had only one fancy outfit in her suitcase, a Scandinavian-style black dress in a crepe fabric with unique cut-outs on the sides and front, and a wide bandeau strip across her breasts. Not really her style, but Connie had convinced her to buy it one Saturday afternoon by feigning a collapse in the store dressing room when she tried it on.
Zane met her in the hallway at the foot of the stairs. He’d been out all day at the clubhouse dealing with the situation with T-Rex, and her gaze skittered from the tips of his heavy dust-covered biker boots, to his low riding jeans, snug in all the right places, and then over his muscle-hugging T-shirt to his tanned, frowning face. Memories of what they’d done last night sent a wave of heat through her body and her cheeks flushed.
You’re showing a lot of skin.” His frown became a scowl as his gaze swept over her body. “Do you know what it does to a man when he gets a glimpse of something he’s not supposed to see?
“Does that mean you like it?”
Zane splayed his hand under the back panel of the dress, his fingers skimming the edge of her panties as he pulled her against him. “It means I only got two hands, and there’s a lot of brothers who won’t be able to take their eyes off you since you’re showing more skin than dress.” He pulled his hand from beneath her dress, and slapped her ass. “Go change.”
Evie cried out in surprise. The slap was more of a sting than true pain, but the responding throb in her sex shocked her, made her wonder what would happen if he slapped her again. But the sudden thrill quickly turned to indignation.
“Seriously?” Evie glared at him, her mouth agape. “You’re ordering me to go and change my clothes? I’ve seen some of the clothes the old ladies are wearing. I look like a nun compared to them.
“You got a habit upstairs, I’ll be a happy man.
“I’m not changing, Zane.” She leaned against the wall, folded her arms over her chest. “Even if we were together, which we’re not, I wouldn’t let you tell me what to wear. I went through that with Mark. He was insecure right from the start because he never felt he could measure up to you and Jagger. When he lost his job, he started drinking again and that just made it worse. And when we had to rely on my income, he couldn’t deal with it. He started following me around, trying to cut me off from my friends, checking my phone, showing up at work. He threw out some of my clothes, called me a slut . . .”
“Jesus Christ. Once we get T-Rex, I’m fucking going after him.” He leaned one elbow beside her and traced the cut out on the left side of her dress with his free hand, his finger warm against her skin. “What if I ask real nice?”
Evie bit back a smile at his sudden change in demeanor. “Jagger saw my dress. He didn’t have a problem.”
“Because you aren’t his.” He slid his hand beneath the front panel of her dress, his finger dipping down to her mound, sending a sizzle of erotic sensation straight to her core. “You’re mine.”
Flustered by his possessiveness given that she’d pretty much booted him out of her room last night, she had no idea what to say. And when he pulled her in close and lowered his face until their noses were almost touching, she wanted nothing more than to run her tongue over his lips and forget about speech all together.
“You showing something that belongs to me, makes it my problem, he murmured.
“I don’t belong to you, Zane.”
“Last night.” He feathered kisses along her throat, following her jugular to the hollow at the base of her throat. “Says you do.” His hands slid down to her ass and his fingers dug into her cheeks. “Way I feel now, thinking of the brothers lookin’ at you, touching you, and you showing off what you shared with me last night, says you do.”
Desire pulsed through her, a deep throb that intensified with every second. “It was just sex.”
“You and me, sweetheart . . . it’s never just anything.”




The bad boys of the Sinner's MC ride again in this exhilarating and fast-paced story of reunited loves and their rocky road to HEA as they struggle to get past years of hurt and misunderstandings.  Ms. Castille brings back all the bikers we've come to know and love and gives us insight into the darkness that has surrounded the quiet yet commanding Zane in a story where you can't help but be captivated by the sexy and loving bad boy with a heart of gold.

Zane's childhood was one of severe physical abuse amidst a life of family drug dealing where everyone doubted his ability to make something of himself. Besides his best friend Jagger, the only bright spot in this unhappy time was good girl Evie whom he loved wholeheartedly.  A single event though led to a life-altering night that had him on the run for a crime he didn't commit and his beloved Evie desperate for a savior.  Years passed and hurts and misunderstandings deepened to harden Zane's heart to the girl he once knew until her life is put in jeopardy and his need to always keep her safe resurfaces. Theirs isn't an easy journey to HEA though as Evie's desire to live a safe and quiet life wars with Zane's brotherly feelings and intense loyalty to his Club. Between lots of bullets, blood, and tears these two will wage a super steamy battle over their future that takes a few unexpected turns along the way.  Zane is a strong-willed and intense man.  Despite being hurt by, and lied to regarding her son, Zane easily forgives Evie and takes the guilt over all their wasted years onto himself.  He's caring, sexy, and his interactions with Evie crackled as they engaged in their subtle battle of the sexes.  In the previous installments he was brooding with a laugh seldom seen, but here he's playful and flirty.  Being around Evie and Ty takes him back to a less cynical time that brings out a well-earned smile as his darkness is slowly washed away from bringing truths out into the open.  He's been my obsession since the series started and I fell even harder for him by the end of the story as he's a compelling dichotomy of sweet and sinful.

Evie was the first heroine in this series to be unfamiliar with biker life which is part of my issues with her.  Since I adored Zane so much I wanted someone worthy of him and often Evie left me disappointed.  She wanted to live a normal life but often wanted to experience the wildness of her childhood with Zane once again which led her to this series' notorious villain Viper.  Her reasons for being drawn to Viper though seemed to be related to daddy issues and her belief that she could control him.  After Zane left all those years ago she let one man destroy her life and was on the way to doing it again when Zane and she collided in a scene wrought with sexual tension.  Evie was easily led astray with believing the lies Viper told her which was hypocritical and left me disappointed in her.  She assumed things about Zane but didn't give him a chance to explain as she wanted to keep wearing her rose colored glasses.  Though she was protective of her son I still felt she was too weak-willed to be in this world, even though she showed a flash of bravery towards the end.  Ultimately I would've wanted a stronger heroine for Zane, one who didn't spend most of the book wanting him to choose between her or the family that saved him all the years ago.

This was an exhilarating story with numerous action scenes balanced with steamy encounters between Zane and Evie which brought out a dominant side in him that made the scenes even hotter.  I loved seeing all the bikers from the previous installments and witnessing their brotherly banter and playful dialogue. I also enjoyed Evie's outspoken, larger than life friend Connie as she brought some much-needed comic relief to some pretty tense situations.  Her comments about bad boy bikers are similar to mine.  This world is portrayed as dangerous but it's not until this book that we lose a well-known character (though I'm not entirely convinced it's for real) and it was a heartbreaking moment.  Ms. Castille included a few twists and turns, notably the evolution of Deputy Benson, that have me intrigued for the future.. Ultimately, despite its frustrating heroine, this was another compelling read in the Sinner's Tribe series which fans of brooding and delicious heroes will devour!

My rating for this is a B+

*I got this book from NetGalley for review in exchange for my honest opinion.
