How I got this book: E-Arc from Publisher
The Mojave Sidewinders is the largest gay MC club in Southern California. They’re also one-percenters, which makes them alluring to those looking for trouble and a danger to those making it. Luc ‘Zero’ Villarojas has been a brother ever since the club’s prez took him in as a runaway. At thirty-four years of age, he’s content to ride his hog, chase tail and run his tattoo and piercing parlor, Zero to Sixty.
Dylan has had to take care of himself since his aunt died when he was still a teen. Even though he’s barely twenty-two years old, the small spitfire has made his way in the world as best as he can and has even started his own would-be investigative agency. He’s proud of himself, even if his agency is on the edge of town in a ramshackle building.
Working his first big case involving a missing young man, Dylan barges into Road Rage, the Mojave Sidewinder’s exclusive bar, and starts asking questions. When it looks as though he’s about to get beaten up, a large, muscled biker covered in ink comes to his aid. Dylan’s incredibly attracted to him—even if Zero is pretty scary and Dylan’s still a virgin. But is there something Zero knows about the missing man that he’s hiding? And is Dylan in more danger than he realizes?
Publisher’s Note: This story has been previously released as part of the Hard Riders anthology by Totally Bound Publishing”
Zero spots Dylan in his motorcycle club’s bar and sparks fly.
This had an interesting dynamic with the older more experienced man paired with the younger virginal private eye. I was expecting it to be a bit cheesy but it really wasn’t. There was a sweetness to both of the characters and I enjoyed them and their chemistry as well as the story which had some darkness to balance that out. I enjoyed this read, it was short but managed to pack quite a bit into it.
I’ll be checking out more from the author.
