What is it about?
(Blurb from Amazon)
I once did everything in my power to save lives.
Now I stand aside and watch men die.
The man I love must kill one of his own. Someone he considered a brother, a fellow Steel Demon, put the entire club in danger. As president, Reaper must crush every last threat to his people, or the Steel Demons MC could cease to exist altogether.
Reaper is ruthless. His justice is punishing. But despite his name, he takes no pleasure in executing someone he once trusted. The task is weighing on him. That’s why he needs me.
But he’s not the only one.
The vice president with the seductive charm needs me. The silent soldier with terrifying nightmares needs me. And the sweet, golden man with the falcon on his shoulder? It scares me how much I need him.
All of these men have killed without hesitation. They all battle demons I can’t begin to fathom. In my journey to combat violence with healing, I found my home with men just as cruel as they are loving.
Can I be fearless enough to love them all?
Sons of Anarchy meets The Handmaid’s Tale in this dystopian reverse harem adventure! Fearless is the third book in the Steel Demons MC saga. This series is full of kindle-melting steam and dangerous men who take what they want. Proceed with caution if easily offended.

Thoughts on Fearless
Mariposa, our no longer reluctant Heroine and Medic, is fully immersing herself in the Steel Demons lifestyle, enjoying the nights with Reapers while exploring the possibilities with Jandro. That part of this Reverse Harem is melding well, offering the characters a chance to get to know each other, and to love. There is also Gunner and Shadow, who each bring with them their own drama, past and difficulties – issues that Crystal Ash manages with both heart and understanding. I enjoyed seeing a potential member of a Harem with issues ABOUT being in the harem – instead of just jumping at the chance like everything is normal (as many books do, no aspersions.)…. and don’t even get me started on Shadow!
The PNR aspect I caught glimpses of in the beginning is brought into more focus here, though it is still not the main theme of the story. That happens to be the drama of a post-collapse world, the joining of lives and the mystery of who is really working against the MC. The paranormal is a side note…. though I have a feeling it is going to become MUCH more important after that final, cliffhanger scene.
- Well written.
- People who actually have issues with a Harem type relationship.
- The characters are growing and slowly exposing themselves to the reader.
- Well edited.
- Hades and Horus… plus that cliffhanger. Interesting times ahead!
- Left overs from Book 2 linger here and leave a bad taste in my mouth.
First Person, Multiple POV
Cliffhanger, but not a bad one – more of a ‘well that’s interesting’ type.
Character Age Range
My Final Verdict on Fearless
This Dystopian Reverse Harem is gaining a more paranormal gleam while still holding its own as a MC adventure. The character are growing and the metaplot is slowly becoming clear, though the underpinnings that build this world are still a little vague. Well written and worth spending a few hours with, this release is available on Kindle Unlimited.
