The Ultimate List of Bad Boy Biker Books

in Bad Boys & Rock Stars, Book Recommendations

Just updated (04/23/13) with some fresh new bikers!! Up to 111 books on this list, now. :) While I’ve come to realize that I don’t think I was cut out to be an “old lady” in my real life, I love “living it” in my book life. All that raw and gritty, unapologetic male testosterone wreaking all sorts of havoc on our hearts! TRUE bad-boys that stick to a certain rogue code. But it’s that exact thrill, that keeps us coming back for more. We know to expect the unexpected, (and by now, that bad behavior is actually “expected”) but still… that moment of OH NO HE DIDN’T is addicting. And they’re not always so bad, are they? It’s that little peek into their soft side, that glimpse into a hardened heart that has us swooning. And of course, their uber-alpha protective side. Yep. Hard to resist!

Lila: have you done a bad boy bikers club list like you did with rock stars and teachers? loving bikers ATM xxxx need some suggestions! Just read all KA Books and am reading undeniable ATM need my bad boy biker fix!

Karen: Wondering if you have or are going to do a list on bikers? I love Tate from Sweet Dreams and Tack from Motorcycle Man. Do you know any others like these? Thanks!

I’m with you girls. I am a sucker for these roller-coaster bad-boy books.

So here it is, a list of bad-boy biker romance books (whether they’re in a motorcycle club, or just ride one), I’ve added them here. Some of them look like hardcore biker gang reads (YAY!!) and some are on the lighter side of “bad-boy” so whatever level of biker you’re in the mood for, you’ll likely find it here. I’m going to tend to this list like they tend to their bikes. Shine it all up real nice, and keep it purring so we can continue to “ride on the back of their bikes” for as long as they let us!

P.S. I bold/italicized the ones that I’ve read and/or those that have gotten some good attention from our fellow readers, too.

Um where is undeniable at?

Maryse October 26, 2012 at 10:31 PM

Kasey, it’s #76 – these are all in alphabetical order by author, and I also included my “pre-squee” mini review link next to it.

Anita October 26, 2012 at 11:17 PM

LOVED Undeniable and Motorcycle Man…any from the list that you’ve read and highly recommend ? :)


lisa October 27, 2012 at 4:16 AM

wow I think I read one book on that list . :)

Emma October 27, 2012 at 6:03 AM

Love it! Thank you for this xxxx

Anne Marie October 27, 2012 at 6:11 AM

I am loving this list! I have been dying to start reading some of Kristen Ashley’s books. From what I’ve been hearing her male characters are yummy super alphas?! ;) Where do I start?!? Lol! Thanks for putting this together, Maryse!

Sheri October 27, 2012 at 7:47 AM

Just read the first three of the Knights Inc. books thanks to your site, and can’t wait for the next to come…swoon!

Sheri October 27, 2012 at 7:50 AM

Oh, and speaking of bad boys….just heard this (courtesy of my daughter!) and it totally cracked me up. Thought ya’ll would get a kick out of it too:

I heard you like bad boys. Yeah? Well, I don’t mean to brag, but when I play Wii, I don’t put the safety strap on.
:o )

Emma October 27, 2012 at 8:12 AM

They are all fantastic Ann! I started with the Colorado series, then rock chick, then the burg series

sandy sciacca October 27, 2012 at 8:31 AM

Man maryse you’re killing me here, LOL just kidding love these list, i’ll be reading when i’m old and gray, oh wait, i am well i would be if i didn’t color my hair ,,, haha To living young forever thru books!!!!!!

Pamela Walker October 27, 2012 at 8:34 PM

Wow. what a list. I thought you would give us 10 books. The only motorcycle books I have read are from Ashley. I am really curious to try some others. Thanks so much.

Nancy Fornataro October 27, 2012 at 11:02 PM

Loved Motorcycle Man, not only a hot book, but the characters and resulting conversations were awesome. I fell in love with Tack.

Deb October 28, 2012 at 9:02 AM


Maryse October 28, 2012 at 11:39 AM

Yep Deuce is there. #77 (alphabetical order by author)….

Hope that helps! ;)

Rebecca October 28, 2012 at 1:31 PM

I love that you added Travis! Would have been sad to not see him there.

Nancy Fornataro October 28, 2012 at 5:05 PM

You perked up an otherwise dismal weekend, yay and thank you!!
Although, Tack is coming into Mystery Man, double yay! Am about 70% done as of last night. I have a favorite author in K.A.

Sara December 11, 2012 at 8:05 PM

Are these in order of which ones you liked best or is it just random order?

Cassie December 14, 2012 at 2:53 AM

I love biker books! All that raw testosterone…But I think you are missing a super awesome biker man series. Lori Armstrong’s Julie Collins series is awesome, and features, as the very hot, Latin, masculine, bad-boy, biker named Tony Martinez.

Barbara February 3, 2013 at 3:09 PM

Love your blog:) Fun fun! Totally up my alley girl!

Maryse C February 7, 2013 at 4:48 AM

This is really bad. I have your blog up on my lap top and the Kindle store ready on my Kindle so as I read a suggestion, I can find it straight away on my Kindle.
I LOVED Kristen Ashley’s Motorcycle Man and thought Tack was hot but boy oh boy did Reaper’s Property do it for me. More hardcore then Motorcycle Man but Horse was seriously delish. Wish Joanna Wylde did more in that series.

Eva T February 11, 2013 at 12:52 PM

How about Hot Ride! by Kelly Jamieson was pretty good – very good, actually. The cover art doesn’t do the book justice. It’s much better than the sleeze-type cover the book was given. (No offense to sleez-ettes!) Eva T.

Tisha February 12, 2013 at 10:21 PM

I loved the whole series. Great books. Gwen seem like a bubble head in Mystery Man but all of a sudden she had some sense. Yeah right.

LucyLou February 23, 2013 at 2:25 PM
yassss February 25, 2013 at 4:44 PM

Can somebody please tell me any good books that are similair to reapers property and undeniable’ pleaseee !! Much love xoxo

Pamela Walker February 27, 2013 at 10:01 PM

I heard through the grapevine that there will be more from Joanna Wylde’s Reaper MCs.

Iain Parke March 2, 2013 at 5:38 PM

Try the Brethren MC Trilogy – staring with Heavy Duty People


book lover March 30, 2013 at 5:06 PM

Reaper’s Property was auesome

keri April 23, 2013 at 5:26 PM

Love your updates and list. My one click button does too! Thanks for all you do!

Kathy P April 23, 2013 at 9:02 PM

Loved, loved loved Reapers Property. Now love my rockstars and bikers!!

T-K April 24, 2013 at 2:36 PM

Thanks for this great list!
I like the Kristin Ashley books I’ve read, though “Knight” is my favorite and isn’t a biker book. I thought “Undeniable” was a fun ride and I felt for the main characters, but to me the best biker book is “Reaper’s Property”. I really love the more “hard core” stories. I’m wondering if you would consider marking them somehow on the list so we can begin to tell them from the sweeter ones without having to research all 100+ titles? :)

Maryse April 24, 2013 at 3:37 PM

I haven’t read ‘em all yet (just a few so far) but I’d be happy to note some from other readers experience. :)

Mindy May 21, 2013 at 5:31 PM

Is Motorcycle Man book one? I don’t want to read this first and miss something major if I skip a book. Help!

sandy sciacca May 21, 2013 at 8:34 PM

it is actually the last one of that series, its mystery man, wild man, law man and then motorcycle man, all very good books:)

Mindy May 23, 2013 at 1:24 PM

Thank you Sandy!! I just started Reapers Property! AH! Any good bad ass biker books you guys would recommend after this one? I read the Undeniable book one and two (First books I have read that relate to motorcycle clubs) I want to stick with the clubs, not just a character who rides a bike. :)

Suzz June 28, 2013 at 8:25 PM

Ref Deuce … I don’t know what book that is, but 77 on your list doesn’t have any mention of it in the description … help?

Zunisca July 17, 2013 at 2:17 AM

You should make a list with the best Bad Boy books.. That will be awesome

Nora July 24, 2013 at 1:16 PM

Thank you for this awesome list. Saving Dallas was very similar to Reaper’s Property. My two favorite MC books so far.

Kay August 3, 2013 at 4:13 PM

Real by Katy Evans is the best fighter book by far and reapers property and undeniable in the biker category. X

Denni August 21, 2013 at 5:03 AM

Undeniable and unbeautifully are the best mc books seize me is the same kind of story but Phoenix rockstar I’m sorry to say isn’t good :( book doesn’t know if it wants to be like undeniable,fifty shades or beautiful disaster and that may same good cause they are all great but I’m sorry it’s really not :( don’t read it x

Paige September 5, 2013 at 9:05 PM

Another great biker book is Craving Constellations by Nicole Jacqueline as good as Reapers Property and Undeniable

Biate September 28, 2013 at 1:27 PM

I really liked Bella Jewel’s MC Sinners series.

Melissa November 3, 2013 at 10:08 PM

Holding On (Lights of Peril) by A.C. Bextor

This is such a great book. Yes it’s in dire need of some editing but OMG what an emotional book. The story of 2 alpha males and 2 very strong females. Yes it’s and MC book but so much more. I laughed and cried. It’s a drama, action filled book. I had to stop at the end to pull myself together just to finish reading it. I can not recommend this book strongly enough. It will leave you thinking about it for days.

Carrie November 17, 2013 at 5:14 PM

Which book has a biker named Ghost? I’ve seen his named mentioned in reviews on blogs and I can’t remember the book name, please help…

Melissa November 18, 2013 at 12:43 AM

Logan’s Reaper(Soul Reapers) released Nov. 11th 2013

I hear the rumble of the pipes before I even saw the motorcycles. I closed my eyes and savored the sound. I loved it and always found myself pausing when I heard one. I fell in love with the sound when daddy brought his bike home that first time. Other kids covered their ears and ran to stand behind their momma’s, but not me. I raced towards the sound with my arms and eyes wide open never wanting it to stop.

Logan Jones is hiding in a small town with her sister Campbell. Their gorgeous neighbor of the duplex they just rented is no other than the Soul Reapers’ VP Colton Murphy. Her life was too complicated to add another layer of hot-ass biker to the mix.


She kept sneaking peeks at me from under her long lashes to see if my attention has moved on but after having seen her I did not think it would ever move on again.

Colton Murphy has a good life with plenty of everything coming his way – woman, money, booze. He has plenty of time to settle down in a few years. That is until he returns from a run to find the long-legged, auburn beauty, Logan Jones, that has moved in next door.

Melissa December 9, 2013 at 7:06 PM

Holding Out (Hawks MC) book 1 by Lila Rose This book was released on Dec 3rd. It was very steamy and a great read.

Tammy December 27, 2013 at 11:33 PM

Storm by Nina Levine – the first one in a series – HOT and a great, fast read!!

Biate March 8, 2014 at 3:31 PM

Another biker series that is not too bad is Lash, Murphy, Nash and Tiny. Written by Sam Crescent. Its not as good as Breakneck or Madeline Sheehans books, but I am enjoying these bikers and finding that I want to know their stories.

Lisa March 19, 2014 at 6:35 PM

Renegade lady Ride. Misappropriate my beautiful broken thing Angels in leather. Underworld champions. Misled. Angels halo. Biker bate. Trash. Seven brothers. Outlaw i have read them all enjoyed each and every one

Lori September 20, 2014 at 12:01 PM

This list is missing the best MC books. Madeleine Sheehan’s Undeniable series made it difficult for me to read any other books for a long time. Nicole Jaquelyn’s Ace’s MC books, Craving Constellations were amazing!
Susan Fanetti’s Signal Bend Series.
Under Locke by Mariana Zapata
Jayna vixen’s Riding the line Series
AC Baxtor’s Light’s of Peril
So MAny!

Netta November 7, 2014 at 5:28 PM

Out of this list do you know which books are audio

Britney Johnson December 15, 2014 at 2:01 PM

Try out the mc series by Kira Johns was the best f the year in my opinion why its not on the list I do t know but it should be

Judy September 20, 2015 at 10:17 AM

Really good list of books, thank you

Keekè October 5, 2015 at 2:35 AM

Katie Ashley’s Vicious Cycle and Sarah Castille’s Sinner’s Motorcycle Club series are hot! Totally alpha take-no-prisoners bad-ass men and kick-ass old ladies taking that go toe-to-toe with their men. Jordan Silver’s The Lyon series continues with book 4 Lyons Heart, a tad too gratuitous in my opinion.

chris October 27, 2015 at 9:23 PM

Need help with an MC series title. I started reading the series a while back and cannot remember the name of any of the books. One of the underlining storylines that will differentiate it from others is the VP never dates and one the female characters takes notice he is crushing on a prospect. Any help with the series’ title is greatly appreciated.

Jenn November 22, 2015 at 4:46 PM

There is a series about an MC that is also all vampires. Anyone have any ideas what the name do this series is. I started reading it and can’t remember the name of series and want to see if any new releases have come out.

Sheri November 23, 2015 at 9:01 AM

I just started reading this genre and LOVE it. I got a free preview on my Kobo for the Reaper series and was hooked. I read through most of them in about 5 days, didn’t get a lot of house work done. Now I am trying to find a new series and came across Arrow’s Hell and then there is Tracker’s End. I think there are 3 books, but I can’t find the third. Ladies, I am hooked. Happy reading!

Vicki March 20, 2016 at 1:26 AM

Total biker addict!!! Katie Ashley, River Savage,and Nicole Snow have amazing biker books too.

Serena August 20, 2016 at 1:12 AM

I just finished Under Locke by Mariana Zapata and I’ll be swooning for at least a week over Dex and his ability to absolutely possess and seduce me from the screen of my kindle. Yum! So of course I had to check out your list of biker babes to see if you could give me someone to rival my lust for this fictional man. You’ve never let me down, so thanks in advance…

Maryse August 20, 2016 at 7:39 AM

Yay Serena!!!! I’m so glad!!! :D
