Review: Manacle by Bella Jewel (MC Sinners Next Generation #3)

Note: This ARC was provided by Give Me Book Promotions in exchange for an honest review.

Manacle is the third and what I believe is the final full-length book in the MC Sinners Next Generation series penned by bestselling author Bella Jewel and we finally get Danny and Skye's story. From the beginning of this series, Danny and Skye have had the kind of non-romantic relationship that made you pause and take note that there was more going on than either one of them wanted to let on. Danny is the son of Spike and Ciara, the brother of Mercedes, and the best friend of Ava, and Skye is the only child of Cade and Addison and the granddaughter of Jackson, the Sinners MC president. Both Danny and Skye know what life in a motorcycle club is all about, and while Danny has always known that the biker life is what he's wanted and was more than ready to step up when the issue of who would take over for Jackson would come, Skye wanted a safer, more carefree life than the one the club and Danny can offer, needing to travel and explore the world. When Danny does let her go, will Skye wish she had held onto him longer?

Fans of the series have been waiting on Danny and Skye's happily-ever-after ever since that awkward, secretive connection between them was seen in the first book, Pandemonium, and become more tension-filled in the second book, Drifter. But I'll be the first to admit that I wasn't too thrilled with Skye for the first half of this possible series ender, especially after the repeated displays of immaturity and selfishness. I felt bad for Danny, who was clearly in love with her, and I would have probably done the same thing he did here. Skye seemed to take advantage of the fact that Danny would drop everything to go to her should she ask for his help, and I seriously wanted to smack the girl. Thank goodness she got her act together...well, kinda, because just when I thought she had wised-up, she let her emotions get the better of her. Even with all their ups and downs, I quite liked that their story remained true to them and the life that they led as children who were still part of the club and that they, especially Skye, did a lot of growing up.

I mentioned earlier that I believe this is the final book in the series because of how everything felt that all loose ends had been tied and there's a point in the story where a decision had been made it just spelled "THE END" in my head to the MC Sinners Next Generation series. Of course, I've been known to be wrong once in a while. Okay, more often than I'd care to admit, but yeah, if there is another novel or even a novella in the offing, I'll definitely read it. If this is the end, then you won't hear complaints from me because kids of the original couples in the MC Sinners series, save for Max though it was hinted that he's on his way as well (hey, I wouldn't say "no" to a novella for him!), got their happily-ever-afters. I've enjoyed both the original and this spin-off series and I do think that it ended on an unexpected but quite poignant and perfect note, especially because I don't think I've ever had an MC series end the way this one did. I'm going to recommend you read the two series in order before heading into Manacle. Four stars. ♥
