He’s only a friend. 

Those words had haunted him from the moment Jessie James had heard them muttered from the one girl, above all others, that he thought had his back. 
Sixteen years later, he still feels those words like a brand on his soul. 
Lucky for him he has a son to take care of, a full-time job that demands every single second of the day, and not a single moment to spare for the likes of a woman that won’t stand up for him when he needs her the most. 
He’s only a friend. 

The words had slipped out of Ellen’s mouth, and before she could recall them or better yet, explain, Jesse is gone from her life for good, taking her heart with him. 

She tries to find her way out of the pit of despair, but not one single person, no matter how much she tries, can fill the void that he left in his wake. Time heals all wounds. Or at least that is how the saying goes. It’s a crock of crap, though.
Sixteen years pass when Jessie and Ellen see each other again without the influence of the town and bad memories surrounding them, and it’s as if not a single day has passed. 

Ellen knows the instant that her eyes see her old love that she’s still just as much in love with him today as she was all those years ago. The problem is that Jesse wants nothing to do with her. Or at least that’s what he keeps telling himself.

“The want, the need, the passion, the drama and ohhhh THE HAWT ALPHA MC MALE, and look he is on the cover of this book!!! lol Goodness this book gave me the feels and I would love for this book to go on and” - iScream Books
“The Dixie Warden Rejects MC or as I call it the Bearded MC series just keeps getting better and better and leaves us yearning for more in the end.” - Smashly Bookalicous Reviewing Chicks
“If you like second chance romances packed with emotion, drama, and action you will definitely want to read this one.” - Cat’s Guilty Pleasures

This book is book five in The Dixie Wardens Rejects MC series and I immediately fell in love with Jessie.  We met Ellen and Jessie in the previous book, and I admit I didn’t like her then, but this book definitely changed my mind about her.

Ellen broke poor Jessie’s heart by saying he was ‘only a friend’ knowing they were more than that.  I was so mad at her for that, and I didn’t know if she would redeem herself in my eyes.

Jessie is raising his son and between him and working, he has no time for anything else.  But, when Ellen and Jessie come face to face fourteen years later, the old feelings come back for her.  She realizes how much she loves him and missed him.  Too bad that he doesn’t feel the same because he wants nothing to do with her.  But who can blame him?

It seems that Jessie will never break down his walls that he put up to protect his heart from Ellen. But, never say never because he begins to open up his heart and realize she is his one true love.

The chemistry between them is off the charts and I adored Jessie for raising his son.  He loves with all his heart, and I think he is one of my favorites of this MC.  I love a good second chance romance and being a biker book, too, this was right up my alley. I can’t wait to get the next book and get more of these tough bikers with hearts of gold after reading this 4 star book.

I’m a married mother of three. My kids are all under 5, so I can assure you that they are a handful. I’ve been with my paramedic husband now for ten years, and we’ve produced three offspring that are nothing like us. I live in the greatest state in the world, Texas.
