Snipe is no stranger to death.
Death has followed him ever since he was young, and now, as a part of the Wulven Kings MC, he’s seen more of it than he ever thought he would.
Which is why it isn’t shocking when Snipe falls head over heels for a gorgeous mortician at a crime scene, the dark beauty holding his heart hostage for years to come.
But life in the club isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, and when fate tries to tear them apart, will Snipe be able to prove to Sofie his heart is worth keeping? Or will his love for the Wulven Kings keep them apart forever, breaking both of their hearts and damning Snipe to endure all of the death and destruction on his own?
Point of view:
3rd person. Alternating between Sam & Sofie’s perspectives.
My first experience with A.K. Graves and it won’t be my last. This kicks off the Wulven Kings MC series and Graves did a great job with the worldbuilding and a diverse group of personalities.
While it’s love at first sight, this love story spans fifteen years. Sam and Sofie go through so much and I found myself laughing, crying, and loving right along with them. Sam’s life as an MC member brings chaos and danger into Sofie’s life in ways she never anticipated.
Despite the danger and questionable morals, I still felt invested in all the members of the MC. It’s obvious what an amazing family they are to Sam and I love how they want Sam & Sofie to be together.
I’m definitely listening to the next book, Surviving Midnight.
I loved Conan Kennedy’s narration. He has a wide range of voices for the characters and really brought the emotions through. I especially liked that his entire voice changed registers for the chapters from Sofie’s perspective. I loved his voice for Sam – gruff, perfect for an MC member, and sexy. Marbles was an absolute riot.

About the author:
A. K. Graves is a thirty-something, happily married mother of three fabulous girls and hails from America’s very own high five, a Michigander born and raised. She is a writer of both paranormal and contemporary romance, currently publishing a series in both, and she is a firm believer that everyone should have their own happily ever after—or at least read about smoking hot dragons, vampires, rockstars and MC members who fight hard and love harder until they do.
