Sean Rush is an adrenaline junkie. That’s why he was in the Army, why he steals and races classic muscle cars . . . and why he can’t stay away from bad boy Ryker, a Havoc Motorcycle Club lieutenant. Fortunately, Ryker can’t seem to stay away from Sean—he’s spent the last eight months breaking into Sean’s apartment and stealing into his bed, leaving Sean physically satisfied but increasingly restless.
Sean has always avoided relationships. He likes to come and go without being controlled. And Ryker is possibly the most controlling man he’s ever known. Still, he finds that he wants more from Ryker than their silent nighttime encounters.
Then one of Sean’s thefts goes bad, and Ryker’s protective instincts kick into overdrive. He takes Sean to the Havoc compound, determined to keep him safe. But Sean’s past threatens the safety of Havoc—and everything Ryker holds dear. Worse, Ryker’s hiding secrets of his own. Soon it’s obvious that the adrenaline rush can’t keep them together anymore. But maybe love can.
Bad boys… you either love them or hate them. I have to admit that it took me a while to decide which way I was going to be swayed with either Ryker or Sean. To be honest I wasn’t feeling a strong connection to either one of them. I kept seeing how everyone was swooning over Ryker on Facebook and I just didn’t get it. I was actually getting kind of nervous. S.E. Jakes’ bad boys usually grab me from the beginning and don’t let go. Sean was okay, but I didn’t feel a strong connection and Ryker was just a guy that seemed to be playing Sean for the first couple of chapters. What was it that all these swooning guys and girls were seeing in him?
I should have known better. Ryker snuck up on me the same way he got to Sean. Actually, the more I got to know both men the more attached I became. It took me awhile, but I finally got it. Ryker was more than swoon worthy. There was a lot more to him than just being a big, bad biker. Family meant everything to him and he would protect it at all costs. There was more to Sean too. He was broken in ways that went beyond the PTSD he suffered from. The way Ryker just knew how to reach him and his determination to help him heal but not change him is what really won me over.
Since this is a new series a lot of characters were introduced. Havoc is an interesting place that goes beyond just being a MC. There was also just a little bit of a mystical vibe to it that I totally didn’t expect but was intrigued by. I’m hoping that we see more of it as the series continues. Ryker and Sean got their HEA, but there’s more to come. I’m hoping we see more of them, but I’m looking forward to see which big, bad biker S.E. Jakes plans to win our hearts over next. 😉
