Blurb: James Morgan: outlaw in a ruthless biker club, the Bastard Legion. Willing to do whatever he must to claw his way to the top of the club’s hierarchy.
Two things stand in the way of his ambitions: his heroin-addicted brother and his bisexuality. In Morgan’s world, his attraction to men is a death sentence, and he has no desire to pursue it… until he tangles with Luc Sinclair.
Luc Sinclair: fellow Bastard Legion biker. Tattoo artist. Rebel who wants out of a club he’s grown to despise.
Luc has a sister he’s protecting from a Legion ex-boyfriend. Saving her makes him a target. Morgan intervenes, and all bets are off. The sex is as fierce and passionate as it is dangerous. But when Morgan’s junkie brother learns of the relationship, he sees a way to advance in the Legion and take out a brother he hates. Their three worlds collide—one is left for dead, another fighting for life, and the bond between them broken.
In a dark and violent world where it’s every man for himself, finding their way back to each other and the only truth they’ve ever found will be a long, hard fight.
Review: I really enjoyed this story about two guys who were members of a biker gang, though each for different reasons. Morgan had been working his way up the ranks, known as a tough guy who gets things done but pretty much sticks to himself. He steps in when he sees fellow member, Luc, about to face off against three other members. Their connection grows from there.
Being gay in the biker world is not a good thing, and Morgan has put those feelings aside for a long time. Luc sparks something in him though. He is sassy and outspoken and one of the few people who isn’t afraid to speak up to Morgan. Luc calls Morgan out pretty quickly, and instigates things that Morgan finds hard to resist. But Luc has his own agenda of extricating himself from the Club, something very few are actually able to do. But he comes up with a plan and manages to convince Morgan he needs to do the same so that they can explore their connection. That is easier said than done, of course.
Nothing is easy in this way of life. There is pressure from all sides, including Morgan’s drug addicted, drug making brother who first puts Morgan on the line to fix his screw-ups before blackmailing him for money and more. On top of this, Morgan’s position in the club is changing and he is given an offer he can’t refuse, which he takes in order to keep Luc safe and buy his freedom.
My heart broke for these guys and the lives they were forced to live. I so badly wanted them to get out and find happiness together, which, after a decade of them each suffering in various ways, they finally are able to accomplish. This story contained much of the elements as the previous book, which took place in the same world, but could definitely be read on its own. I really enjoyed meeting these guys and loved Luc’s snark and boldness. He maintained it throughout and it was quite entertaining at times. These guys made a really good match – Luc truly brought out the better man in Morgan and showed him a life where that man could exist. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more in this series.
Overall Impression: I really liked it!
