It’s impossible for a one-percenter motorcycle club member to simply walk away—and no one knows that better than undercover agent Bram, who’s almost killed for trying. His cover isn’t blown—yet—but it’s only a matter of time. The Heathens won’t be satisfied until he’s dead, so he decides to lay low and heal.

But when his younger brother’s disappearance throws a wrench into his plan, Bram ends up in Shades Run, a town ruled by the notorious Havoc MC. In less than twenty-four hours, Bram finds himself at the mercy of Sweet, Havoc’s president, as he throws himself into the undercover role of a lifetime: himself. A man who’s never belonged anywhere, and who will do anything to protect his younger brother.

When finding Linc seems impossible, Bram is torn between Sweet, Linc, and revealing his true identities . . . and there appears to be no way out. Once again, he risks it all trying to save it all. Only this time he’s got no backup to save him if he falls.

RUNNING BLIND

by SE JAKES

This was my first book by SE Jakes but it definitely won’t be my last.

Now, it takes some suspension of disbelief if you read an MM story about homosexuality in a so obviously heterosexual environment like a motorcycle club, even more so in a one-percenter. That is not to say that it doesn’t happen. What do I know, right? It didn’t take me long to get sucked into this story that had a little bit of everything. Action, secrets and a (not so sweet) love story.

I enjoyed Bram and Sweet’s story. They were both tough guys who had a lot of responsibility on their shoulders. Sweet as the president of Havoc and Bram as an ATF undercover agent who not only tried to find his missing brother but who had to keep a low profile because another motorcycle club wanted him dead. There was a rough dynamic between them, a lot of distrust that led to arguments and eventually equally rough sex.

Speaking of, this is probably what I could have less of and that’s saying something because I like my sexy times in books. Especially in the first half I would have liked a little more story and character development. Nevertheless, I loved Sweet and Bram together, they knew for the most part what the other one needed and ready to give it to them. The sappy me would have liked a little more emotional development between the main characters but I kind of also understand that this may not be the way of an MC member. But again, what do I know?

This is the first audiobook narrated by Mark Larchmont I listened to and boy am Impressed. Bot only did he do the different voices extremely well, he also gave them a distinct accent. I’ll definitely look out for more books narrated by him.
