    2. 5 Stars!!!What a great introduction to a series and I got it for free on !! I even got a little teaser for the first book in the series! I got to really dive into Dax's head, it was like watching an alpha in the making. I loved it and I just know that Satin and Steel is gonna be great!!!I really enjoyed reading about Dax's early life, how innocent he was. And then how he slowly becomes this confident man. He grew up hard, never knowing a mother's love. But when he meets the president of The Phan [...]

    5. A solid prologue to a gritty, intense, and entertaining biker romantic suspense series, Earning the Cut, by Jayna Vixen, is a novella that introduces the main character, Dax, a troubled kid who goes on to join a biker club. The author manages to convey in an achingly beautiful way the damaged childhood and the first love (and heartbreak) that will define Dax's character in the ongoing series. It could have been trite, the same old Alpha hero with a tortured past but it wasn't. Even if you don't [...]

    6. Earning the Cut (Riding the Line #0.5)By: Jayna Vixen5/5 starsThis is the prequel novella to Satin & Steel (Riding the Line #1). It is told from Dax’s point of view and is his history of childhood, adolescence and how he came to be a prospect and later a patched brother of the Phantoms MC.Dax Jamison grew up an unwanted child. First neglected by his mother and abused by her and the men in her life, until he was taken away and then was bounced from foster home to foster home. Dealing with t [...]

    7. Motorcycle club romance is a genre that I'm just getting into and had some definite hits and misses with. Earning the Cut sounded like it would be an interesting read, since it shows how Dax got into the MC in the first place and probably what drove the love interests apart before they're reunited in the main series. Well, what I got was a story that was super awkward to read because the tone simply doesn't match what was happening on the page. It also read more like explicit Young Adult for the [...]

    8. This was really good for as short as it was. Actually better than Satin and Steel. I am anxious to see what book two has to offer. I love Dax so much more now. Maybe I wish I would have read this first.

    9. This a really short Motorcycle Club novella a prequel to the Riding the Line series. It's basically outlines the life struggles of Dax as an adolescent. There is romance in this but it's secondary to grit of this tale. I am very interested in delving more into this series.

    13. I enjoyed this story about how a young man became a biker gang member. From abused boy to foster teen, falling in love with a girl his polar opposite, discovering sex… to betrayal and finding a “family” in the biker gang.I haven’t seen much Sons of Anarchy so I can’t make a comparison there, but I will say the characters were somewhat stereotypical. The conversations felt stilted, which might have been intentional. The interactions between the characters were stiff and not always belie [...]

    14. I got this one to try, so I could see if the author worked for me. It was interesting, well written, and I'm sure that it'd be great to have that background story for reading Satin & Steel, I just don't know if I can bring myself to do it. I know it's based around SOA, and I love that show, so I don't know if I can read something that resembles it too closely. I just don't know!!!I'm torn, because I know that it's supposed to be different enough, and I really did enjoy Earning the Cut. Maybe [...]

    15. Dax started out with a really shitty childhood and then has the girl all the boys in the school dream about coming to his defense. Trish is the girl with the plans to become a doctor, and from a family on the hill. Dax is not the boy her father wants her to be with. But these two fall in love anyway. Trish makes Dax become a better person, but he finds something wanting out anyway from his past. The MC from his father. He has lost his girl and turns to the MC afterall. When the girls comes back [...]

    16. The blurb for this novella is pretty upfront regarding the fact it is based loosely on the Sons of Anarchy TV series, and in that respect I will agree. Unfortunately, SoA has stellar actors to bring the scripts to life, and the novella fell a bit flat for me. The story was good, although not outstanding or particularly memorable. The story line was original, but unbelievable. I would love to have seen more character development, as I think the writer has good potential to bring more excitement t [...]

    17. 3 1/2 stars30,000 wordsThis story is well writtnen, but for some reason I found myself unable to connect to any of the characters. The story of Dax's childhood was like readingwell, a story. I felt dettached instead of being able to relate and 'feel' for the guy. Likewise with the rest of the gang they were merely people to me, no one I cared about one way or the other.I read this with the intention of reading the sequel Satin and Steel however I am unsure if I will bother now, because as per ab [...]

    18. This was a good read. It gave good insight into why Dax joined the MC. It is horrific what parents can do to their children. It is a pity that the system is sometimes full of people who are apathetic towards these abused children and that they fall through the cracks as a result. Every child has the potential as Dax showed here, but no one cared enough to break through his protective barrier. Not even his girlfriend. It breaks my heart.This story was very well written. And I am looking forward t [...]

    19. To tell you the truth, I did not see the need to make this book a whole book. It would have fitted as a chapter in any of the other books. However, now I know why this book was free point exactly.Nonetheless, having a better scope of Dax's background. His struggles, fears, limitations and more important his lack of self-confidence, a reflection of his hard upbringingat ultimately, were the core of his bad decisions and little desire to improve in life. This book felt like an errand child, kind o [...]

    20. Dax is a unique character that seeing where his flaws originated does not affect the way we see him. Usually I start to feel sorry for the charaqcters or I see them differently than the author intended but that did not happen here. We see that Dax is from a rough home where his mother was a drug addict. we see how he grows up in foster care. than his first relationship with Trish. I see him as a developing character and how the past molded him. Also if your going to read the series than this is [...]

    21. Such a good story and wished I'd read it before Satin and Steel. Dax won my heart and his story is one that creates empathy for him as he tackles on battle after another. Even his 'good' foster family felt lacking in some way. Acceptance is all he really wants and it will take a tragedy for him to experience it! A quick and easy read that fleshes out Dax and Trish's story, something I think that was missing from Satin and Steel. Trish got to shine in this book as well, keen to see how she gets o [...]

    22. This was a nice start to a new series for me. Dax had a rough childhood and to see how Trish came into his life and their obstacles was great. It was nice too see that Dax wasn't always so sure of himself and how he came to be the man he is now. I loved how the book started out with Dax childhood leading up to Satin and Steel. I can't wait for the next book. Loved it! Dax is definitely an alpha male.

    23. This was quick read, but good. It gave me a different perspective of Dex and of Trish. Makes me love both of them more, well really I didn't have feelings for Trish but now I dois makes me rethink where I hope the next book goes. I honestly am not sure where I want it to go, but I know after reading EtC I want Leather and Sand more now!!I recommend reading Earning the Cut second, that is the order it was written and I loved reading more about Dex after I had a taste of him.

    24. I really liked this book, however it is very similar to Sons of Anarchy, even the main characters names are a little too similar for my liking. With that being said, the upbringing of dax is completely different. This is a very enjoyable book to read and i would for sure read the others in the series and i would have given 5 stars if it wasn't so close to the TV seriesreviewed by crissy sutcliffe for HeadTripping Books

    25. Although this was a decent read, I just didn't find the book interesting enough to want to continue on to the next book. For some reason the fact the book was based on the show SoA and the author even puts out there that it is just really bothered me (it really shouldn't so I'm not sure why it does). I guess I am just looking for something more original.

    26. Strange It was very descriptive, almost like paragraph after paragraph was written in past tense trying to bring you up to speed to present day But, that was the whole book. The first two thirds was better than the last third but I struggled with connection. It had the ability to be so much more powerful but a lot was skipped and rushed over.

    27. I liked the beginning of this book. I liked how Dax had a difficult childhood and that Trisha stood by him, but I feel like it fell flat after that. Dax is a likable character, trust worthy and loyal, but I wanted more from this book then what was given. It was almost like it was just a character introduction, which is fine, but I was looking for a story.

    29. Earning the Cut is a novella by Jayna Vixen and is a great introduction to the Riding the Line series. The novella, as well as the series, focuses on Dax Jamison. The novella starts with Dax as a child and details his troubling childhood which ultimately leads him to the Phantom MC. The rest of the series follows his life and love as he climbs the ranks of the MC.

    30. The beginning was slow but as the story developed I kept reading hoping to find out more and to really get into the story. After about the half way mark I realized no matter how hard I tried I could not get into it and really felt that it was just another book. I think the author is wonderful and can tell a story yet this story just wasn't something I could connect with.
