Blog Tour and Review: Ex-Con

Title: EX-CON
Author: Scott Hildreth
Release Date: August 17th, 2015
Series: Selected Sinners MC, Book 5
Cover Model: Darren Birks


People break promises. It happens every day.

Jack Shephard is tall, muscular, covered in tattoos, and rides in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club. Most people wouldn’t believe a word he said based on his appearance alone.

But they don’t know Jack like I know Jack, and Jack made me a promise.

There’s one small problem. Jack’s been arrested on a murder charge he didn’t commit, and he’s facing life in prison.

But he promised me he’d always come home.

And Jack doesn’t break promises.

EX-CON is a stand-alone, no cheating, no sex outside the relationship, HEA story of love, loss, second chances, and living life outside of the boundaries most citizens live in. It is Book V in the Selected Sinners series of MC Erotic Romance novels, and is able to be enjoyed fully as a stand-alone. To experience the series in full, Making the Cut, Taking the Heat, Otis, HUNG, and EX-CON may, however, all be read (in that order).

4.5  Hearts

This is the 5th book in the Selected Sinners MC series by Scott Hildreth.  We know some of this story already because “Big Jack” is Syd’s brother.   The MC helped him get acquitted and out of Federal prison. The story we don’t know, is really who Jackson Shepherd is.  Where has he come from? How does he choose to live his life?

You will love the man that Jackson Shepherd is.  He is not like many of the typical MC men that you read about.  Jackson is honest, loyal and willing to be in a committed relationship.  For him, finding the perfect woman is the challenge.  He is not willing to jump into bed with just anyone.

I really enjoyed the first half of the book.  This is Jackson and Emily’s story.  I like his protective nature with her.  I love how he makes sure her needs are met always.  I love how they just fall into easy with each other.  The s3x is off the charts hot! Very patiently written explanation of Jackson’s needs.   Truly theirs is a love story for the record books.  They ooze the confidence of a long married couple. 

“She allowed me to see for the first time that not only is love blind, but luck is even more so, and it was by mere luck that we happened upon each other.”

The story is written in “before” and “after” jail time.  Excellent move by the author.  Flashbacks can get annoying after a while and there was a lot of Jackson/Emily story to tell.  It is written in alternating POV—also a favorite of mine. 

The second half of the book was a little more conflicting for me.  Partly because I couldn’t imagine coming out of jail after 10 years and trying to live my life as I knew it.  And partly because, I missed Jackson and Emily.  I was cheering in my head for them to get back together.  I had felt that strong connection and just knew that time would not take that love away! 

The book has a lot of the author poured into it, by his own admission.  I had to sleep on it to better digest what I read.  Bottom line is it is an extremely well written book.  How do I know this?  I am screaming for more!  I need to feel that happy…..more! Assimilation into family and brotherhood….more!  Jackson and Emily….more, please!  Scott Hildreth…Bring on the next book…I’ll take more.  


A Personal Note from Scott About Himself and 
His Personal Journey with this Book

I began riding with my first MC after 20 years of riding alone. Although I didn’t know it at the time, immediately following my introduction to the club, I became the target of an ATF investigation. 

The investigation ended when a helicopter, over 30 ATF agents, US Marshalls, and countless other SWAT Team members converged on me one day. 

I was indicted on more than two dozen criminal counts, and given the option to plead guilty to one and receive a light sentence (probation). If I fought them, they explained, I would face life in prison. 

Well, I’ve never been one to give up easy, so I chose to fight. 

And I fought all the way to the US Supreme Court. 

The fact I lost my case didn’t really matter to me. Fighting was more important. Standing up when most citizens would sit down had always been my nature. 

My time in prison wasn’t easy, but I made it the best I was able. The days drug on forever, at least initially. In time, my mind made sense of it all, and digested it as being a new way of life; my only choice, so to speak. 

In EX-CON, Jack’s thoughts, feelings, decisions, and actions were mine. What he felt, thought, and went through in the book is accurate down to the smallest of details. 

My experiences in life cause my books to have more ‘feel’ than a conventionally written novel. EX-CON is no exception. It’s gritty, real, and raw as are most of my novels. But one thing it has that no other Scott Hildreth novel shares. 

300 pages of compassion. 

Enjoy knowing a little more about me. And enjoy EX-CON, which is a reflection of part of my life.


Born in San Diego California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas home. Residing in Kansas with his wife, Jessica, and five children (and another on the way in November 2015), he somehow finds twelve hours a day to work on his writing. 

Addicted to riding his Harley-Davidson, tattoos, and drinking coffee, Scott can generally be found in a tattoo shop, on his Harley, or in a local coffee house when not writing. 

Loyal to the fans, fan girls, and faithful followers who allowed him to make writing a full-time career, Scott communicates with his followers on Facebook almost daily. He encourages his readers to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.
