Review Blitz: Making the Cut by Scott Hildreth

Title: Making the Cut
Author: Scott Hildreth (SD Hildreth)
Release Date: January 27, 2015
Series: Selected Sinners MC Book 1

*WARNING* Depicts an Outlaw Motorcycle Club, criminal activity, graphic sex, and violence, but has HEA, no cheating, and NO sex outside the relationship.

Avery, a Criminal Justice major in college, yearns for a bad-boy. An alpha male. An unattainable guilty pleasure. The unicorn of men.

When the Selected Sinners Motorcycle Club rides into Avery’s bar one night, her heart stops, and her mind goes to work. She's immediately attracted to the baddest man in the group, Axton. She wants him at any cost.

Axton isn’t only a bad boy, he's the President of The Selected Sinners Motorcycle Club, a 1%er Outlaw Motorcycle Club. At the onset of a gun deal with a notorious Mexican prison gang, there is no place in Axton’s life or mind for a college girl with a smart mouth.

Avery quickly becomes willing to sacrifice whatever she must for a shot at Axton.

Axton is willing to sacrifice nothing, and has no interest in her advances. His mind and devotion are on his club brothers and finishing the gun deal with the MS-13, which will allow one of his brothers in prison to make it out alive.

But Axton finds in doing the deal, he needs Avery and her Criminal Justice education to complete it.

If Avery makes it out alive, it will be a small miracle.

If Axton makes it out without falling for her, it would be an even bigger miracle.

This book is a stand-alone love story. It does have tremendous violence, explicit language, sexual situations, and the intricacies of being in an Outlaw Motorcycle Club depicted. All sexual partners in this book are over the age of 18.

Stand alone love story. HEA. No cliff hanger.

Making the Cut by by Scott Hildreth is one book I couldn't stop reading. It has been awhile since I read an MC book, and Making the Cut  was a great place to start again. Avery and Axton are two characters you are instantly enthralled with, because they are not what you will usually expect. They have so much more to them. They each have their own traits that make you want to know what's going to happen to them next.

Interesting characters tied together with an equally interesting story line moves this book along perfectly. I don't want to give anything away because it is a reading experience you are going to want to have. One of my favorite parts was the first meeting between the biker and the college student. It is a gritty story, that has violence in the midst of everything else going on, but this is what makes it a standout story for me.

Scott Hildreth does a great job with Making the Cut. This was actually the first book I've read by him and I now want to read everything he has written. He has a great writing style that pulls you in and leaves you wanting more.  I'm eager to read the next book about the Secret Sinners MC, because there are so many other fascinating characters that I have to know more about. If you are looking for a new MC book to read, Making the Cut is one you'll want to get.


Scott Hildreth is a very analytical sort who bases his beliefs on statistics he compiles in his head. Often going as long as a month without so much as a single sip of water, he drinks coffee as if it were the lifeblood of his writing. 

Scott fears flying, clowns, and amusement park rides. Tall and lean with a cleanly shaven head and covered in tattoos, he doesn’t blend in well. After reading his writings, this makes perfect sense. His vibrant characters, backstories, and plots, although always relatable, generally stand out as much as he does. 

Willing to discuss matters at length most people shy away from, Scott’s writing has revolved around such subjects as domestic abuse, suicide, alcoholism, drug abuse, cancer, divorce, homosexuality, religion, and lack thereof. 

Born in San Diego, California, Scott now calls Wichita, Kansas his home. He is a proud father, and lives devoted to the love of his life, Jessica. When he isn’t writing, he may be found on his motorcycle or in a local coffee house. 

Scott's novels include Broken People, Undefeated, Unstoppable, Unleashed, Unbroken, Baby Girl - Ruined, Baby Girl - Owned, Baby Girl - Loved, To the Depths of Hell, The Alpha-Bet, Finding Parker, Karter, and Confessions of a Smut Author.
