Why I read this book: I enjoyed the first book.
The last thing Smokey should let himself want is this man, but he can’t seem to stay away….
Every time Smokey stares at the President patch on his cut, he feels like an imposter. After all, that was not the life he was supposed to lead. In his former club, he did what they asked, when they asked, and that was enough for him. But 30 years later and the fate of the Broken Chains resting on his shoulders, all eyes were on him.
Smokey had enough to deal with after the VP of Satan’s Souls got carted off to prison on his watch, but now there’s a dead man in an alley with a cut bearing the name of The Cobras. And Smokey knows they’re not prepared to handle the consequences if the Cobras’ President thinks they’re responsible.
However, the dead man isn’t the worst part: The only witness is a civilian.
Eliah Burns was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and it seems like fate really has it in for Smokey, because Eliah is also the one man he’s been avoiding. Eliah has been in Smokey’s periphery for years, his little brother’s favorite professor – and he’s also the one-night stand Smokey hasn’t been able to forget.
Now Eliah’s in Smokey’s home, hiding from the men who want him dead, and Smokey’s trying to keep his heart from tripping and falling for a man he shouldn’t want, while learning who is trying to set his club up to start a full on war.
Broken Chains MC is a Motorcycle Club Romance series with dubious morality, mild violence, and happily ever afters.
I enjoyed the first book in this new series and so happily nabbed the second one. Have to say I’m glad I did. I love damaged heroes and Smokey definitely falls into that category. He’ll do anything for his younger brother including challenging doddering old professors who take advantage of young men. Except Eliah isn’t a doddering old man. No, he’s a damn attractive younger man who catches Smokey’s attention. Things get hot, but the men decide the relationship shouldn’t veer in that direction. Back to distance. Until Eliah’s life is threatened. Then Smokey’s all in.
Eliah was injured as a teenager, and although he’s independent, he’s also not in fighting shape. His mind is his weapon of choice, and the threats to his life have to be taken seriously. When push comes to shove, though, he’ll protect those he loves. Loving the head of motorcycle club isn’t easy, but then he’s never taken the easy path, so why start now? The men were meant to be together. An there is another book in the series and I’m looking forward to it.
I mentioned Logan Anare in my last review and I’ll do it again. He’s a new narrator to me and I enjoyed his performance tremendously. Can’t wait for the next book.
