Sam “Solo” Braun lives by one truth, the Grave Diggers Motorcycle Club above all. The creed has served him well, giving him the only real family he’s ever known.He would die for his brothers and them for him, but they don’t know he prefers men over women. Coming out to a group of men who fear no one isn’t high on Solo’s priority list, especially because he’s never indulged in more than one night stands.
Everything changes after one night with Eric James. For the first time, Solo can’t stop thinking about a single night he’d spent with a man. When fate intervenes, Solo comes face to face with his blue-eyed obsession only to find out Eric is a cop. Solo hates cops, and so do his brothers in the club. However, Solo decides to gamble everything and spend more time with Eric under the guise of getting information.
Falling in love with a cop is a very dangerous proposition for a man in Solo’s position, so why can’t he walk away?
Solo goes to a bar full of guys in polo shirts knowing he’ll get laid. Sure enough he makes eye contact with a super hot guy with denim blue eyes. He dubs the man “Blue” and they agree to go back to Blue’s house for the night.
The sex is off the charts but Solo doesn’t do relationships – being a motorcycle club means he can’t be gay.
Blue, who is really Eric the cop, never expects to see Solo again, so he’s shocked when he runs into the man while doing some undercover work. They agree to work together to solve a case involving kids and drugs, and while the case is being investigated they agree to a “relationship”.
The men can’t stay apart and feelings get involved. What will it take to keep these guys together when being gay could get Solo killed and neither man can be seen with the other “professionally”.
This is a fast read, not very long, but full of steam. Solo is rough around the edges but willing to be vulnerable. Blue is not the preppy guy Solo thinks and together they have more in common than not.
I loved the emotional connection these guys made and how gritty the story felt, it seemed more “realistic” to me.
If you like alpha males, gritty romance, motorcycles and “tough love”… this is for you.
(FWIW I loved the old cover!)
