Author: Bella Jewel
Release Date: February 13, 2014
Genre: MC Romance
A girl on the run.
Her father gave her one task before he died. To deliver a package. Now she has the baddest biker in the state after her. He wants what she's got. Secrets in both the past and the present threaten to destroy what she is working so hard for. He threatens to ruin her heart. Two worlds will collide to make something explosive.
“Fight me, don’t you stop,” Axel breathes into my ear. “I won’t hurt you, Cricket,” he murmurs, running his finger down the side of my face. “But I need you to fight.”
So, that’s what I do.
I start by squirming, trying to twist my body around. He presses his body against mine, and reaches up, tangling his fingers into the fence. He thrusts his hips, ramming both out bodies harder into the wire. I groan, and throw my head back, hitting him in the face. He snarls, and takes my hands, quickly uncuffing me before pulling them harshly behind my back and jerking my body back into his.
I hear the cuffs drop onto the ground.
I guess he’s letting me play this fairly.
“Stop that,” he rasps into my ear. “I’ll make it hurt if you do that again.”
“Maybe I want it to hurt,” I hiss, fisting my hands together and shoving them backwards into his stomach.
He stumbles off me with a grunt, and I spin around, ducking to the left and attempting to run. I don’t get two steps before Axel lashes out, taking my ankle and pulling me so hard I go down into the dirt. My face just misses being smashed into it by mere centimeters. Axel flattens his body over mine, and takes my head in his hands, jerking my head back by my hair and breathing down on me. “You’re being a bad girl,” he husks, running a finger down the side of my face.
“You’re not letting me play fair,” I whisper. “I was cuffed before, it wasn’t a fair chase.”
I feel his weight lift off me, and he jerks me up, pulling me into a standing position.
“Run, then. I’ll give you five seconds, and if I catch you again, Meadow, I’m going to f**k you,” he murmurs, then his eyes grow lusty. “Hard.” I turn without answering, and I run into the trees at the back of the lot. I hear Axel counting loudly, and my body shivers. I am sweating now, and my breathing is hard and ragged, but the chase is so worth that. I hear Axel take off after me, and I squeal with delight as I weave through the trees. It’s dark, but I can see enough because of the lights surrounding the club house.
“The minute I get hold of you,” Axel yells. “I’m goin’ to rip your panties down and put my d**k so deep inside you, you’re goin’ to scream.” I shiver, and swallow. I make my way to the fence line again, and I press myself against it for a second, letting my eyes scan the trees. “Then I’m goin’ to kiss you so hard your lips will bleed.”
I take off, using the fence line as a guide to get back to the other end of the lot. I can hear Axel to my left, and I know he’s gaining on me, but if I run, it’ll make a lot of noise and he’ll figure out where I am.
“Come out come out wherever you are,” he sings. “You know I’ll make you come so much your legs will give way.”
I feel a smile on my face as I keep moving along the fence, keeping my body plastered against it. I can feel my own arousal dampening my panties, and now I’m eager for him to get his hands on me. I want to know what he’s got to give.
“You can run, Cricket, but you can’t hide.”

In love. That's what I am with Bella Jewel's books! I swear each one I read is better than the last, and I have yet to read anything bad written by her. I must admit that I had mixed feelings when I first heard about this book. Part of me was ecstatic because I LOVED her MC Sinners series. The other part was a little hesitant because this was another biker book, and I was afraid it would be very similar to that series which I had read not too long ago. BUT the excitement won over any hesitation, and Angels in Leather completely kicked the shit out of any concerns I had. If this had been a concert, I would be on my feet giving a standing ovation at what a brilliant piece of work this was.
Axel was once a good man who adored Meadow when she was a young girl, but after his disappearance, he has now come back as a monster which she can barely recognize. She holds the one thing he wants, and he will stop at nothing to get it back. Yet, you can't help but love Axel despite how much of an asshole he can be towards Meadow. Even when he tries to force her to see there is nothing left of the old him, there is still that bit of protectiveness in him which has you holding onto hope that he will end up being worth trying to save. Meadow was amazing. She had so much fight in her, and really gave Axel a run for his money. I was not expecting such a strong and powerful female lead from this story, and was pleasantly surprised with how much I adored her character. The two of them combined were absolutely electrifying.
"You can't fix something as broken as me, and you sure as shit can't love it. I'm the meaning of damaged, and you're not going to put me back together, so stop fuckin' trying'. Just stop."
Now let me just say that despite the ample amount of HOT bikers in this book, the kick ass heroine, and kinky sex (which I feel wrong for loving so much lol)... those were not my favorite things in the book. Oh no, not even close. My absolute favorite part of the book was a character called "Lady". I am not going to get into her character but I will say that this was completely and utterly unexpected but i LOVED her! She was just so much fun, and I would really like to see more of her in the future books! Maybe hear about how exactly she came upon Axel and what it was like caring for him in the beginning. Also, just to learn more about her character in general, and what happens to her in the future. And please please PLEASE let us have more Colt!!! I was almost rooting for him to win over Meadow… Almost.
'Angels in Leather' kept you on the edge of your seat, and there was not one single slow moment throughout the entire book. I could not put it down! The story definitely kept my heart pumping and my blood flowing and I cannot wait to see what the rest of the series will have in store for us!
