As Sergeant At Arms for Devils Pride MC, Tyler “Trick” Malone’s take no prisoners reputation make him one of the most feared and respected members of the club. Unbeknownst to the MC, Trick indulges his most dangerous secret, traveling out of state twice a year to trade his cut for the whip he expertly wields at a gay dungeon.
Trick’s well organized life takes a turn when he saves bar back, and terrified submissive, Chase Ward in a Georgia dungeon. With his protector and dungeon owner dead, Chase is no longer safe in the place he once called home. With the new dungeon owners circling like sharks, he desperately begs for sanctuary in the arms of his savior.
A year later the MC is still none the wiser that Trick’s houseboy is anything more than a grateful servant. Chase knows if the club finds out they will kill Trick, the man he’s come to rely on for everything from the food he eats to the pleasure he feels to the security he craves. Even when gratitude turns to love, Chase never expects reciprocation from his ruthless Master. After all, the only way for them both to survive is if Trick remains the heartless bastard the MC knows.
Trick is positive he has it under control and having Chase around has definitely made his life easier. There doesn’t seem to be any harm in letting Chase take a part-time job at Velvet Ropes, especially after meeting privately with the owners. That is until a bomb explodes at the club, leaving Chase fighting for his life and forcing Trick to face his long hidden feelings.
Even if Chase survives, that bomb has done more than rock the foundation of the popular leather club. It’s blown Trick and Chase’s well-guarded secret out of hiding, putting their lifestyle and their lives at risk. Now there is only one thing Trick needs to do before the club gets them and that’s to get revenge on the person who dared to hurt his precious boy.
AUTHORS NOTE: Tricking Chase is directly tied to The Protector (Book 3 in the Sizzling Miami series) and can not be called a standalone.
WARNING: Tricking Chase contains an established D/s relationship, hot guys on motorcycles, an undercover DEA agent named Snake and a few visits from fan favorite Sizzling Miami characters.
Tricking Chase intrigued me from the blurb. Wanting to read this story is why I went back and read the entire Sizzling Miami series. While all the titles in the Sizzling Miami series were fairly light on the BDSM scale, sticking with mostly informal D/s relationships, Tricking Chase takes it up a notch with a TPE-style relationship complete with impact play, bondage, and punishment.
Many of the questions I was left with while reading book 3, The Protector, where answered in this installment. We get a more in-depth look at how Trick fits into the plan that was executed in Protector. We also find out more about the planning of said plan. It was interesting to see the triad’s relationship from the eyes of Chase, Kyle’s cousin.
I can’t recommend you read this story without having read The Protector, first. They are too tightly entwined. I also recommend you read this story before reading Their Reason, book four in the Sizzling Miami series, as it contains some spoilers for the ending of Tricking Chase.
Tricking Chase is a gritty look at the seedier side of motorcycle clubs. Not all MCs are into the illegal, but Devil’s Pride has become more of a gang than a club. We get to see how and why Trick is involved. We get to see the man behind the image. We get to see his gentle side every time he interacts with Chase. Despite his prickly manner, you can’t help but want the best for both of them.
Chase, for his part, is broken. We see him at his lowest, and we see him after Trick has taken him in and made him his boy. We don’t actually see the process of bringing him back from the brink. We just get to see the loving couple that results. There is no doubt that they are both head over heels for the other, and it is beautiful to see… through the grit.
While Tricking Chase is not my typical style of read, every once in a while I need something with more grit. With characters you can’t help but like despite them not being the most pristine examples of humanity.
With characters that are making the most of the hands they are dealt.
I will likely continue this series. There are certainly a few characters I need to see find their HEAs.
