ALWAYS wanting to be around the other person, getting all HOT AND BOTHERED over them, MISSING them if they re gone, and never feeling better than when they were CLOSE LUCI Terrified by the sounds of broken glass, gunshots and screams coming from inside the strip club he is currently working at, the last person Lucifer, aka Luci , expects to see is his father The father that had abandoned him and his mother years ago The father that Luci hasn t seen in years The father that is the President of the notoriousCoffin Nails MC The father that wouldn t be happy to learn that his bastard son is doing lap dances and sucking c ck in a dirty strip club for money All of a sudden Luci finds himself in the clubhouse, not quite locked down but just not allowed to leave without a leash either Oh and he has a bulldog of a man guarding his door, making sure Luci doesn t try to stupidly escape Tooth, a sexy beast of older age, with a thick beard, broad shoulders and a huge body to die for Luci is instantly drawn to this man s masculine beauty and his wish to leave that place and go back to the life he is used to becomes less and less alluring with each day he spends time around Tooth There s a problem though Tooth is straight Or is he Having lost the one and only person he has ever been in love with 12 years ago, Jason Tooth Ulmer, VP of the Coffin Nails MC, has sworn off taking care of lost souls and broken people He s promised himself to never engage in anyone s suffering ever again and just focus on the burning fire for revenge But when his Prez asks him to keep an eye on his son Luci and guide him to finish high school, clean up, start a new life and uhhhm keep the fact that he is gay at least a little less painfully obvious, Tooth is forced to make an exception for this lonely boy that has had to look after himself because of his dead mother and unaccepting, unloving father.Babysitting Luci means dealing with all kinds of temptation every day He is the last thing Tooth needs to be around, with the young beautiful face Tooth wants to touch, the long blonde hair he wants to smell, the big blue eyes that draw all the butterflies in the world into his stomach, the affectionate words slipping out of his mouth that pierce through Tooth s soul and the promiscuous sway of his hips that ignites his blood Lucy is off limits though, being the Prez s son and all.Will Tooth be able to avoid the way his heart s strings have started getting pulled by Luci Or will he give into his feelings and finally claim the love and care Luci is gladly offering him The list of things Eda LOVED about this book 1 TOOTH The big scary biker dude, who is always patient and calm and completely truthful A true protector, who doesn t only guard Luci s flesh and bone, but his emotional balance, too A man that NEVER uses hurtful words and ALWAYS thinks before speaking A ruthless savage of a man on the outside who hides the most tender heart inside his chest I melted every time he called Luci apervwhenever he is at a lost of words and has to force himself to respectfully and gently deny Luci s advances He is not perfect, but he is certainly perfect for Luci 2 The slow emotional development between Tooth and Luci, as they get to know each other It was sweet and funny at times, and heartbreaking at others I wouldn t change any part of their journey to finally becoming a couple, even though the never ending sexual tension almost killed meYeah, there is NO SEX till you hit the 60% mark, but when you dowhen Tooth and Luci finally get together, there s plenty of explosive sexy times that leave you panting and in serious need for a cold shower, LOL 3 The BDSM elements Yeah, surprisingly, it totally worked for me here I actually think it even provided depth into the relationshipHit me HARDER Why It s the only way you re CLOSE to me4 The dynamic between Luci and his stepbrother Bell At first, Bell seemed genuinely irritated and maybe even disgusted by Luci, but throughout the book he softened and warmed up to him The bond that formed between them was beautiful and very touching, I think So why only 3,5 stars Something very unnecessary happened %80, which seriously PISSED ME OFF and things didn t pick up after that either The almost indifferent reactions of the characters to this painful event APPALLED me I hated it all and was VERY disappointed with all said characters.SHOW SOME F CKING RESPECT AND SHED AT LEAST A FEW TEARS DAMMIT sobs OVERALL Definitely better than Book 1 I d recommend it, but keep in mind that it s not a WOWZAAAA, my mind is blown kinda book 3.5 I have OPINIONS, darlings Very important opinions I have stayed far away from this series, even though my bestie Ele has been gently pushing me for ages to give it a go I finally caved because I read the authors Werewolves of Chernobyl and gave it four stars.Ele knows I don t do heartbreak or heavy angst, so she recommended books 2, 6, and 9 definitely NOT books 3 or 7 because MF, and under no circumstances book 8 because violence and abuse and Really Bad Things I started with The 3.5 I have OPINIONS, darlings Very important opinions I have stayed far away from this series, even though my bestie Ele has been gently pushing me for ages to give it a go I finally caved because I read the authors Werewolves of Chernobyl and gave it four stars.Ele knows I don t do heartbreak or heavy angst, so she recommended books 2, 6, and 9 definitely NOT books 3 or 7 because MF, and under no circumstances book 8 because violence and abuse and Really Bad Things I started with The Devil s Ride, and it was a mixed bag for me Stuff I liked a lot complex, opposites attract MCs Luci stole my heart he s sassy and wanton, but also vulnerable and brave And Tooth does right by Luci from day one, even if he is annoyingly resistant to Luci s advances Tooth is all about the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club brotherhood, and apparently rule 1 is don t screw your boss s long lost son, especially when he s thirteen years your junior hot sex Tooth is so very, very dominant hotter bikes slow burn Tooth wants to eat Luci like candy, and Luci prances around naked like he owns it And he does cool kitty This is not a euphemism great epilogue featuring vest that says Property of Tooth Who doesn t want to be all badass like that Stuff I didn t like weird completely improbable mystery plot I m not going to get into all of that, but the coincidences were numerous If the Obvious Villain really wanted what Luci had, why would he wait so long to take it It didn t add up for me the way Priest, Luci s dad, initially treats Luci Milk cheating on his pregnant wife and everyone turning a blind eye like who cares cause women are just good for breeding anyway the NAMES groans I just couldn t Lucifer and Tooth But I did get a kick out of Luci s voicemail greeting Hi, this is Lucifer, son of Satan please leave a message inaccurate medical information At one point, a medical professional tells Luci that his blood type, O , is the most rare Not true O is the universal donor type and the fourth most common blood type after O , A , and B Probably no one else noticed or cared, but that kind of thing bugs the crap out Stuff I REALLY didn t like unnecessary, violent death of an integral secondary character view spoiler Did Bell have to die What did this add to the plot besides Priest finally realizing he needed to treat his other son better because life is short unpredictable hide spoiler DOLLY I hated that bitch She needed to go TORTURE At one point, Tooth tortures a suspect think Evil Dentist there s a reason they call him the Tooth Fairy , and it turns out the guy knows nothing about what Tooth is investigating So a random dude is tortured for NO REASON, and we all just move on and have lunch Torture is NEVER justified.Guant namo Bay Nuff said The fact that one of the MCs basically tortures people for a living made me sick I don t want to round up or down because this was a true 3.5 read for me, but because GR doesn t do half stars I m rounding down I liked the slow burn, sexy romance and the sweet HEA, and I LOVED Luci Tooth if I didn t think about Tooth s profession too much , but this book was just too long and the mystery suspense plot OTT If I had the power to do it, I would have given this book a million stars Oh my goodness What was this A heck of a ride, that s for sure.I had SUCH fun reading this book It was SO cute, SO funny and SOOOOOOOO hawt The sex was sizzling hot, girls I didn t think I would love this bookthan the first one, because this is how it usually goes I start a series, and I always feel that no other book ever comes even close to the first book But this was not the case here, and how ridiculously If I had the

The sex was sizzling hot, girls I didn t think I would love this bookthan the first one, because this is how it usually goes I start a series, and I always feel that no other book ever comes even close to the first book But this was not the case here, and how ridiculously happy I am for that I loved Luci he reminded me a bit of Laurent from Laurent and The Beast The enthusiasm he had for life made me fall in love with him Everything he did, from blurting out things meant to be kept quiet, his crass jokes, to his sense of humour, all were like this superbly beautiful, sparkling thing I wanted to touch and own.And Tooth Ho, boy He is the type of guy every guy and girl would probably dream about, so chivalrous and so hot.I am just catching my breath right now, because you see, I couldn t breathe properly earlier, what with all the steam Luci and Tooth generated on and off page.The bad stuff that happened was just horrifying, but I a happy that it all tied up into a neat little knot And now I can t help but want evenof these two 3,5 stars for this hot MC story This is my first book by K.A Merikan and it won t be the last, that s for sure.I love MC books and this one was my first MM MC book The presentation made me so curious, and this one You don t fuck with the club president s SON really made me read it sooner even if I had many other books in plan.The

sure of himself, and his heart still bleeds because he lost his lover a long time ago but still feels the need of revenge.LUCI I absolutely loved his name Can t really believe how much I liked it Lucifer not so much, but LUCI is so sweet Just like I pictured him 19, blond and somehow innocent, even if he had a rough life.It was a slow burning story, but I liked the way Tooth and Luci built their trust The sex was HOT and I didn t expect them to fit so good.I enjoyed reading this book, but when something really bad happened, something unexpected and painful I just couldn t believe the authors did this And I was disappointed with the others reaction and the way the action went at the end of the book.Well I will definitely read some other books from this series I am so curious about

custody of Tooth, the Nails Vice President famous for his gruesome interrogation techniques The man proves to be the sexiest beast Lucifer has ever met He s also older, straight, and an itch Luci can

Tooth was kind because, without a doubt, he had the capacity to be ruthless and diabolical, but if he was in your corner, he was loyal and faithful Just don t piss him off lol But seriously, Luci was very lucky to have Tooth He s not perfect, but he s a what you see is what you get type of man It really didn t take me long to fall for him.So, let s set up the story..Through a turn of events, Luci is taken under the wings of the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club The president of the club also happens to be Luci s father Someone needs to keep an eye on Luci.enter Tooth I won t tell you how he got the name Tooth, but let s just say that it has something to do with his skills for getting answers out of people So Tooth and Luci are stuck together while the club is searching for a girl that owes them money Luci is openly gay so you can just imagine how well that initially goes over with a bunch of macho bikers Plus, the president s wife hates Luci from the start because her husband cheated on her with Luci s Mom many years back To give you the big picture, Luci only has one friend, and it s Tooth.A great part about this book is reading about Tooth and Luci as they get to know each other They are truly total opposites One of the many great things about Tooth is that he is big and powerful, but he doesn t use that to his advantage with Luci in a negative way For example, there is a part where Luci is caught going through Tooth s things and Tooth walks in on him doing so Tooth could have just beat Luci up to teach him a lesson Instead, he just calmly stated I don t appreciate you looking through my things Is that clear Luci was even prepared for Tooth to hit him, but, he didn t He just politely asked Luci to not do it again Now, mind you, there were times when view spoiler Tooth did hit Luci But they were spankings and Luci knew that it was punishment for him acting out This was along the lines of BDSM and not abuse by any stretch In fact, Luci quite enjoyed it and would find himself acting out just to feel Tooth s touch hide spoiler The sexual tension build up between Luci and Tooth was really perfect My God, they both wanted each other so much and I felt really bad for Luci because he was putting himself out there shamelessly, but Tooth was being respectful and turning him down Tooth was never cruel in his rejections, but teasing in a way to ease tension like calling Luci a perv lol.When they finally get together it was explosive and totally H O T It was definitely one of my favorite parts of the book Right before they got together, Tooth was giving Luci a spanking and Luci asked him to hit him harder and then explained why he wanted him to do so It tugged at my heart a little bit and then it was totally awesome because Tooth finally let himself free and admitted he had feelings for Luci.and he acted on them Boy did he act on them I read it twice just to make sure that I didn t miss anything Even though they finally admitted their feelings for each other, they still had to keep everyting under wraps so the rest of the club wouldn t find out First off, Tooth was the VP of the club and the president was Luci s father Definitely a tricky situation Plus, Luci had a step brother and sister that he was just getting to know and they would have thought that Tooth was taking advantage when he really wasn t The dynamic between Luci and Bell was another great aspect of the book Bell was also the president s son and he was Luci s step brother At first, he seemed genuinely disgusted by Luci, but throughout the book he softened and they started to form a bond Aside from the relationships, there is a side story regarding Tooth s past that very much comes into the present as the story progresses All in all, it was an excellent read This is a total stand alone from the first book in the series so if you haven t read the first book you don t necessarily need to in order to read this one But, I would read the first one anyway just because it was also great If a real life Tooth does exist, may he find me sooner rather than later SQUEE As much as I loved the first book this one was even better Full review to come I read this book when it first came out It was one wild ride, and two years later, I can safely say it s the wildest I ve ever been on Not just because of the action that s only a small part, considering the length of the book But because of the unforgettable characters, and the fact that it touched so many issues in a way that offers redemption The family we were born into but let us down, and the one we chose for ourselves later on The loves that we lost and almost broke us, and the new I read this book when it first came out It was one wild ride, and two years later, I can safely say it s the wildest I ve ever been on Not just because of the action that s only a small part, considering the length of the book But because of the unforgettable characters, and the fact that it touched so many issues in a way that offers redemption The family we were born into but let us down, and the one we chose for ourselves later on The loves that we lost and almost broke us, and the newfound ones that brought us home And revenge, which doesn t make us feel any better, most times Oh, but sometimes it does To this day, and after having read all books in the Sex Mayhem series , I m pretty sure that Luci, aka Lucky is my favorite character ever He steals the spotlight every time, not just in this story, but in every book he happens to make a cameo appearance in Luci is the bastard son of the Coffin Nails club president, but has nothing to do with the club He s actuallly all alone after his mother s death That s about to change.Luci is such a brat With his long, blond hair and extra tight jeans, he s a walking temptation He s sassy and fiesty, with a unique, deadpan humor and happy go lucky attitude But on the inside he s hurt and alone The way he craved his father s love and approval kicked me in the gut Nobody gets him Except his new baby sitter Before Tooth became VP of the Coffin Nails MC, he was just Jason Jason might have been able to move on from his horrible past, but he never forgot And he s always on the lookout for revenge And now he has to babysit the Club president s son, who turns out to be big pain in the ass Tooth offers a calm presence and has a quiet strength He s also a big, scary motherfucker when pissed The burn in this story is slooooowThere is actually no sex at all until 60% spanking scenes not withstanding But the authors use this time wisely There is a bond building between the MCs, and an undeniable chemistry Luci gets to know his siblings and tries to be a part of a family for the first time But when he finally gets together with Tooth, there are fireworks This is not a brutal book, compared to some of the other books in the series There is some violence, but not too much, and definately NOT between the MCs spanking scenes not withstanding Keep in mind, though, that this is a MC setting A real one There are guns, death, and grief Is it necessary Like in the first book, I believe there s absolutely no way to answer this It is bikers world and shit like that happens The ony thing you can be sure of, when you pick up a book by these authors, is the solid HEA.I ve said it before, nobody writes action scenes like The Merikans Here the action scene view spoiler in the morgue hide spoiler is one of my favorites Just thinking about Tooth and Ghost looking at each other under that table.serious goosebumps, people.What I m trying to say, in not so few words, is that this story ticked each and every one of my boxes It s one of my all time favorite MM books, and needless to say, I very highly recommend itUpdated
