Growing up, I idolized my father. I wanted to be the same type of man he was, but I wasn’t. I didn’t function the same way he did. I had my own vices that kept me isolated from the rest of my brothers and the club. I felt like I was living a lie until I met Spencer. Spencer never judged me for being a biker, but he also didn’t know I was part of the Wayward Saints.
I kept my life a secret from him, a secret from pretty much everyone. Secrets never stay hidden for long and soon I have to choose. Choose between the family I love more than anything and the one I’ve fallen for in a short period of time.
Being part of the special crimes unit is something I have worked my ass off to achieve. One night can change all of that, and can cause me to lose everything I’ve worked so hard for. Elijah is worth that, even if I don’t tell him that. He didn’t know how I felt about him when I watched him walk out the door.
One case can take our perfect arrangement to utter devastation. When truths come out, I am ordered to get information from him – have him rat on his own family, something I know he would never do. One wrong move and one of us can be killed.
Is love worth a death sentence? I know I would die for Elijah, I just hope he will be there to save me in time.
This is the seventh book in the Wayward Saints MC series. I have not read any of the other books in the series but I was able to work out what had gone on so far, so I would say this could be read as a standalone. I was attracted to this story as it was an MC read and also m/m.
Elijah is the son of the VP of the Wayward Saints and along with his blood brothers and his MC Brothers, they all have each other’s back and would do anything for each other. Everyone continues to throw River and Eli together, putting her as his woman no matter how many times Eli tells them she is his best friend only and she is in love with his brother. The only way he could make them see is if he told them the truth but then that would be one thing they would not accept of him. Him being gay. Eli keeps his secret life well away from the MC and his family. Relying on one night hook ups from a local gay bar, he maintains a separation of his true self to that of the MC. That is until he meets Spencer.
Spencer is a FED and is openly out about his sexuality. When he meets the sexy biker at a local gay bar he knows his luck is in but little did he know how their two worlds are about to collide.
I liked the way these two met and the gradual build-up of their relationship. It was extremely sexy and erotic with an underlying touch of the love that was soon to blossom. I did think there would be more angst and aggression when the truth was finally revealed but this was near to the end of the book which was a little rushed for my personal liking as I would have liked to have explored this more. Especially as throughout the book Eli had constantly worried and fretted about how his MC family would never accept him as a gay brother.
The backstory of how the FED investigation and what had been happening within the MC was cleverly linked but again I would have liked to have read more about this. Maybe this is to be further explored in the next book though?
Overall an extremely engaging, sexy and passionate read that I more or less read in one sitting. Definitely recommend and I may go back and read the earlier books in the series. Four stars.
Excerpt # 1
“Nice bike.” He says as I kill the engine.
“Thanks. I custom built her when I turned eighteen.” I run my hand over the gas tank and he makes his way towards me. His eyes never leave mine as he reaches out and pulls my head to his mouth.
“I’ve always wanted to ride on one of these Harley’s.” He says when he releases my mouth. My hand grips his hip, I pull him closer and motion for him to get on. He slowly puts his leg over the bike and sits in front of me. My dick is straining against my jean, I want so bad to free the fucker just so I can get his sweet lips wrapped around me.
“I’ll give you something to ride.” I murmur, pulling his head to mine. I grip the nape of his hair and run my mouth against his throat. I hear a car coming down the street, but his truck is blocking the sight of us. The lights illuminate the area around us and when I look down, I can see the bulge in his jeans. My free hand runs down his neck and towards his stomach, slowly feeling my way down his rigid body.
Excerpt # 2
Before I can even knock, the door is thrown open and I see a pissed off River. “So you just ignore my 911 text messages and show up here. I swear you are worse than your brother.” She snaps. I walk over to her and pull her to me.
“Yeah, but you still like me better sweetheart.” I kiss her cheek and the anger disappears. She tries to be a hard-ass, but it’s just not her style.
“Where the hell were you? You were supposed to come by hours ago.” She looks up at me with a pout and I shrug.
“I was out.” I say, moving past her and into her house.
“Out as in with someone or trolling?” She asks as she shuts the door. My phone beeps, I pull it out to see a text message from Seb. Great. I get to hear it from both sides now.
“Both.” I say distracted.
“Oooh!” she says giddily. “Was it good?” River loves hearing the details of my sex life for some odd reason. She loves hearing about when I fuck them. Her gay porn addiction is kind of frightening, but I just go with it. “Please tell me it wasn’t with that douche bag that you were fucking before.”
