Embrace the danger.
Sean Rush is an adrenaline junkie. That’s why he was in the Army, why he steals and races classic muscle cars . . . and why he can’t stay away from bad boy Ryker, a Havoc Motorcycle Club lieutenant. Fortunately, Ryker can’t seem to stay away from Sean—he’s spent the last eight months breaking into Sean’s apartment and stealing into his bed, leaving Sean physically satisfied but increasingly restless.
Sean has always avoided relationships. He likes to come and go without being controlled. And Ryker is possibly the most controlling man he’s ever known. Still, he finds that he wants more from Ryker than their silent nighttime encounters.
Then one of Sean’s thefts goes bad, and Ryker’s protective instincts kick into overdrive. He takes Sean to the Havoc
compound, determined to keep him safe. But Sean’s past threatens the safety of Havoc—and everything Ryker holds dear. Worse, Ryker’s hiding secrets of his own. Soon it’s obvious that the adrenaline rush can’t keep them together anymore. But maybe love can.
I loved the beginning of this book – actually, I loved the whole book, but the beginning struck me as the perfect blend of Mystery Man and Motorcycle Man by Kristen Ashley, but with an M/M twist. It’s like Ms. Jakes took the best of Hawk and Tack and made him bi-sexual. And by no means am I remotely suggesting that Ms. Jakes is ripping off KA, but rather it’s like she read the books and asked herself what the love-child of Hawk and Tack would be like and created Ryker. So as a huge KA fan, I freaking loved Ryker. And my impression of Ryker is where the similarities between Ms. Jakes and KA ends.
Now what made Running Wild so much fun to read was that Ms. Jakes gives us not one, but two bad boys. Sean might not be a biker, but he is a bad boy in his own right. Due to his time in the service and his propensity for grand theft auto, he is most definitely a tortured bad boy at that. Both are alpha male bad boys and they should not work, but they do … oh boy, do they. Ryker and Sean take man-on-man to a-whole-nother level. While Ryker can do sweet, it is the hard and rough balls-to-wall encounters that left me chewing a hole in my lip. And the passing conversation about a threesome … good grief Ms. Jakes, are you trying to incinerate my Kindle?
Bikers, car thieves, and alpha male bad boys in abundance. Running Wild is an action-packed, testosterone-filled, thrill ride that held my attention from page one to the end. I am so freaking glad that this is going to be a series as I cannot wait to read more about the Havoc MC. This might have been my first novel by S.E. Jakes, but it most definitely won’t be my last.
Thanks so much to Crystal’s Many Reviewers for hosting me on the tour for Running Wild: Havoc Book 1
. This is the start of a brand new series, with different heroes for each book and HEAs at the end of each book. Sean Rush and Ryker stole my heart a long time ago, and I’m excited for you guys to meet all of them.
Here’s a snippet from a scene toward the middle of the book. Ryker has just proved to Sean that he doesn’t mind his
MC knowing they’re together — by kissing the hell out of him in front of everyone. And then he tells Sean to get on the back of his bike, so he can take Sean home. Sean has objections…
Still, I kept my voice down so no one could hear when I told him, “I’m not riding in the bitch seat.”
He was trying not to grin, but failing. “Why not?”
“I know exactly what it means when you ride on the back of a guy’s bike.”
“It means you fucking own me, Ryker.”
His words were a low rumble that shot straight to my dick and holy fuck . . . I had no answer. Well, obviously I did, but I refused to put voice to it.
I was out—that wasn’t the issue. And obviously being out wasn’t an issue for him either. But the MC shit, we’d never talked about it, what it meant for us. All these men knew about our relationship, knew he was looking out for me. Knew he considered me his.
I swear I had to remind myself to breathe.
“Get on the bike, Sean.”
This time, Ryker’s tone left no room for argument. If anything, it made me harder. I stopped thinking—par for the course when I was around Ryker—and I got on the bike behind him.
