Embrace the danger.

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.

My View:

If like me your ears pop up when you hear this author has a new book out I think you will enjoy this first book in a new series. We are introduced to the men of Havoc, a motorcycle club; they are intimidating and tough but always look out for their own.

This is quite honestly the strangest start of a relationship I have ever read about.

Sean Rush is a loose cannon. Just out of the army and trying to keep his nose clean he yearns for the excitement that stealing cars gives him, the very reason he was last arrested and ended up in the army. When he spots Ryker in a club one night he makes a play for him but is turned down, or so he thinks. That night Ryker breaks into his apartment and there is a lot of wild and hot sex. This will continue for the next few months, never very much said between the two but a connection is formed.

Ryker is a lieutenant in the Havoc Motorcycle Club and would give his life to protect the people he sees as his family. He is the ultimate alpha male, controlling to a fault and he really wants to control Rush, but you are just never sure of his motives. Rush for his part wants to be controlled, but with his yearning to steal cars, his PTSD and his I don’t give a fuck attitude, this might prove an impossible job!

Rush is the ultimate friend who would do damn near anything if one of his was in trouble. Enter best friend and former army buddy Noah who has landed himself in a world of trouble. Rush is immediately there offering his help, stealing cars for him so that he fills his orders, then it all goes wrong and both men have so many people after them you have to concentrate to keep track! All the while Ryker is watching and keeping his man safe from a distance.

Ryker is very easy to fall for immediately but Rush took a little longer. He is not a horrible person but a man with a lot of past issues who needed to leave a few of them behind before you can see him for who he really is. Together they were the perfect pair and I loved seeing the tough biker nearly brought to his knees when he looked at Rush with love, so not the image he tried to portray.

As often is the case with the first book in a series there are a lot of characters to meet and a lot of information to take in. This book will outline to you what the men of Havoc do, some good and some bad, and will leave you wanting more. There is suspense, mystery and even something a little paranormal at the compound and I for one can’t wait to see what the next instalment brings.
