Jake. Kings of Hell MC Prospect. Obedient. Desperate for approval.
Vars. Dominant. Stern. Undead.
Jake is itching to become a patched member of the Kings of Hell MC.
For two years he’s toiled as the only prospect. So when a new guy swans in and thinks he’ll get a patch in no time just because he’s got friends in high places, Jake is there to stand in his way.
Only that the guy is older, more experienced, drives a Harley, and has the kind of boots Jake craves to lick.
But he won’t.
Because he only fucks patches.
Vars is ready to find a new home in the Kings of Hell MC after a messy relationship led him straight to hell. In comparison, the pretty, blue-eyed prospect could be just the pleasant rebound he needs.
The boy is a brat, but that could be amended with a firm hand and a gag.
If only Jake was ready to admit to his submissive needs, Vars would gladly take him under his wing.
That is, until he finds out something inhuman resides inside of Jake.
Vars didn’t cheat death only to call out to it again.
But stuck together in one room, keeping each other’s secrets, they might just have to become allies, no matter how unwilling. Because if there is something Vars can’t resist, it’s a boy with pleading eyes.
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating perspectives between Jake & Vars.
Note: These books do not stand alone. While each book follows the relationship of one couple, there’s a storyline threaded throughout all of them. They need to be listened to in order starting with Laurent and the Beast. Also, reviews may contain spoilers to previous books.
I was a little worried going into this as Daddy/boy and this type of D/s aren’t generally my cup of tea. However, the ongoing series storylines make it impossible to skip books. That said, I really liked this one.
While I’ve always been wanting more for Jake, it was great to get to know him even better and see him come into his own. I also really enjoyed Vars as a character. Despite his place as Daddy/Dominant – he had a vulnerability as well.
There’s a bit of forced proximity mixed with supernatural forces that the Merikans write so well. I was never able to guess where the story was going and it made it hard to ever push pause.
As with previous books – any solutions seem to come with more problems. I can’t wait to start Gray’s book.
I don’t think there’s any words I could use to do justice to Joel Leslie’s performance for this series. Huge cast of characters, almost all men, and he has given them all such unique sounds/personalities that even without names I’d always know who is talking. Effortlessly sliding between accents. Everything is consistent across books making this easy to binge.
