Dreamspinner Presents


Jake Rushman is on the run, but it’s too late. He’s being tracked by an expert.

Motorcycle Club Enforcer Nick is tough, but even he has a conscience. It’s slowly destroying him, together with memories of his parents’ ugly deaths. Nick eliminates the guilty, but Jake Rushman is the innocent witness to a murder. It will be one kill too many.

Determined to find redemption, Nick plans to trade his life for Jake’s. Neither man counts on the fierce, powerful bond that the collision of their opposing worlds brings, and Jake refuses to let Nick sacrifice himself. He offers Nick the one thing he’s never had: hope.

But with a violent past tracking them, Nick might be forced to do the one thing he promised himself he never would—kill again.


Jake is a nice guy, accountant, in the wrong place at the wrong time. He inadvertently witnesses a murder of a drug dealer by a motorcycle gang and he knows his life is on borrowed time unless he can escape.

Nik is the nephew of the leader of the Motorcycle gang and he’s set to take Jake out of the picture, but Nik’s tired of this life of killing and wants to do one final “good” act before taking his own life (what he perceives is the only way to successfully leave the gang.)

Nik decides to give Jake the tools to make his escape successful but Jake turns the tables on Nik and offers him a deal he can’t refuse.


This is a short story so I don’t want to give too much away – but – WOW it really packs a punch. I was captivated by word one and loved every single minute of the ride.

I am not familiar with this author, but I am very impressed. The writing is dark and powerful, the story flows well given it’s length and the story is both fairy-tale and realistic at the same time.

Jake and Nik are a wonderful couple and their chemistry is HOT but the most tangible thing between them is their love.

I highly recommend this book and will eagerly look for more from this author.

(And that cover is to DIE for!  ROWR!)

This seems like it’s going to be a great story. I don’t usually read MC stories, but I think I’ll have to check this one out. Thanks for the review!
