The Devil's Ride by K.A. Merikan ~ Guest Post, Review, Excerpt & Giveaway

The Devils rideHop on the bitch seat and ride with Tooth, the feared vice president of the Coffin Nails motorcycle club. No one wants to end up in his dentist’s chair, deep underneath the club compound, but his bed? That might be another matter. Lucifer, the bastard son of Tooth’s friend, is used to doing things his way, and being under supervision of the most intimidating man he ever met is the last thing he wants. At least until he understands that there’s no place safer than the mattress at the feet of Tooth’s bed.

I enjoy stories with plenty sexual tension that for one reason or another can’t be resolved right away. That’s the case with The Devil’s Ride. Tooth and Luci can’t, or rather may not be together for a variety of reasons, and with danger lurking right behind the corner, the stakes are getting higher with every chapter. If you want to know more, here’s the blurb and an excerpt :) There’s also a pinterest with some inspiration for the book: http://www.pinterest.com/KAMerikan/sex-mayhem-2/

Synopsis

--- You don’t fuck with the club president's son. ---

Tooth. Vice President of the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club. On a neverending quest for vengeance. The last thing he needs is becoming a permanent babysitter for a male hooker.

Lucifer. Fallen. Lost. Alone.

After a childhood filled with neglect and abuse, followed by his mother’s suicide, Lucifer set out into the world alone. There was nothing for him out there other than taking it one day at a time. As the bastard son of the Coffin Nails club president, Lucifer never got much fatherly love. So when the Nails show up at the strip joint Lucifer works in, the last thing he expects is to be put in the 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’t ever scratch.

Tooth’s life came to a halt twelve years ago. His lover got brutally murdered, police never found the perpetrators, and all leads were dead ends. To find peace and his own justice, Tooth joined the Coffin Nails, but years on, he’s gotten nowhere with the case, yet still lives on with the burning fire for revenge.

Babysitting a deeply scarred teenager with a talent for disappearing is the last thing on his bucket list. He promised himself to never get attached to someone like him again. To make sure the openly gay boy is safe in the clubhouse, Tooth is stuck keeping an eye on him. The big, blue, attention seeking gaze is drawing Tooth in, but fucking the president’s son is a complete no-go, even when both their feelings go beyond lust.

What Tooth doesn’t know is that Lucifer might hold the key to the closure Tooth so desperately needs.

Liza’s Review

Luci, full name Lucifer, is the bastard son of Priest, President of the Detroit chapter of Coffin's Nails. Tooth is Vice President of the same club. Luci is blond, slim, blue eyed and gorgeous, with a troubled soul. Tooth is big, bearded, hard-assed with an equally troubled soul. When Tooth is ordered to babysit little Luci and keep him out of trouble, after Luci is found working in a strip club, a friendship that neither one of them had ever experienced or expected, starts to develop.

This is not a romantic love story in the traditional sense. For one thing the relationship between the two men takes a long time to develop. There are no hearts and flowers here. But there are some unusually tender moments. When Tooth provides Luci with Harlow's teeth - well you have to read the book for yourself to work out why that was such a wonderfully moving moment.

Luci's relationship with his father, half-brother, half-sister and Priest's wife all added another dimension to the story. Luci so badly wanted to be a part of a family, but it wasn't something he had ever had. When he was made so unwelcome at the start, my heart broke for the poor man, but the initial reactions to Luci's presence and his life, fitted the club life that the author had created.

In a way the love story between Tooth and Luci matched the setting. It was rugged. The men lived in a violent world. There were a few things that I would have liked explained a little better, especially at the beginning of the book. You are flung into the middle of an action sequence without really understanding what it is all about. But as I got drawn into the story, and the unusual pairing, it started to make more sense. By the time I had read chapter two, I thought I wouldn't like this book - I couldn't get a true feeling for either main character – I didn’t really like either one of them. But as I read on I was drawn into it - Luci's use of sexual innuendo to keep people from hurting him and Tooth's apparent straight persona. Their back stories, woven so naturally into the book were tragic and heartbreaking but both men had survived in their own way. This gave both Tooth and Luci a depth as characters as the story went on and it was beautifully done. All credit to the author.

Even the HEA was perfect for the setting - a sleeveless vest, a barber's chair, and well, you honestly are going to want to read the book for yourself to see how that pans out.

Favorite quote -

"A boy who would give him a fucking lap dance to Nine Inch Nails. Where else could he get that?"

Excerpt

Luci pushed some hair off his face and looked up at the brute holding him.

He was a pirate. Not one from a Hollywood blockbuster, no, this man’s green eyes were so wild Luci could picture him tying his beard into bundles and setting them on fire. Like Blackbeard. Or just plain old torturing people, walking them down the plank and laughing like a cartoon villain as they were ripped into shreds of flesh, blood, and bone. That kind of pirate. Even with the thick dark beard and long hair softening the lines of the man’s face, it was immediately clear to Luci that he had a killer bone structure, with high cheekbones, a strong brow and roman nose. The guy would have been easy on the eyes if it weren’t for the fact he was a thug who was clearly ready to eviscerate Luci for information.

“It’s Lucifer to you,” he said and spat straight into the man’s face to the soundtrack of men laughing and hissing.

“This boy has a death wish,” one man said and snorted.

“Maybe he has some milk teeth to pull,” added another, accompanied by a wave of laughter. Luci gave the men a quick once-over, and it hit him that they had to be a biker gang. All wore those vests he remembered from childhood, most were in leather, and their general style was very much what he would associate with that culture. What did Suzy get herself into? Were these the people she got her drugs from?

The stern face above him tensed only slightly when spit hit the man’s cheek. The biker slowly brushed it off with the side of his hand, his nostrils flaring as if to accentuate the odd calm in those green eyes. Luci had no idea what to expect from this man, and just as he thought that, he was pushed against a wet table that smelled of the cheap whiskey sold at Vanilla. He barely managed to catch a breath before the biker snorted over him.

Drive in? Really?” he read out the tattoo on the small of Luci’s back. It was stylized to look like a retro neon sign, and even had a 50s car next to it.

Luci frowned, all too aware that he was the main entertainment here. Only way to fight it was not to give the brute the satisfaction. “Why you so interested in my ass, huh?” His poor hair was now getting soaked with alcohol. He prayed they wouldn’t set him on fire or some shit.

The man rumbled with laughter, pushing Luci harder against the table. Luci could still see all the grinning faces, and the terrified eyes of the girls. “It’s hard not to notice a tramp stamp when your pants are halfway down your ass.”

Luci groaned and pulled the leggings back up again. He finally noticed Rick on the side. The man was sickly pale, which was understandable with a gun pointed at his neck, yet he still gently shook his head at Luci and mouthed ‘no’.

Luci heard more boots stomping somewhere behind him.

“She’s not anywhere at the back or the motel either,” a man said, anger simmering in his voice. “What the fuck is this shit?”

Blackbeard sighed. “This little shit here knows something, or so they all say.”

“Pull him up. He’ll talk.”

Like hell he would! He couldn’t get Suzy into even more trouble than she was in now. She was one of the nicest people in this place, even shared joints with him.

There was the dreaded pull on the hair again, and Luci found himself molded against the hard body of the big biker, his naked skin touching the man’s shirt and leather belt, with a metal buckle that made Luci shiver when it touched the small of his back.

All thought of the strong muscle against him evaporated the moment he looked into the face in front of him. He’d never forgotten those bright, inquisitive eyes and the bushy Jack Nicholson eyebrows.

“D-Dad?” he uttered, frozen in space and time. This couldn’t be happening. The silence that ensued was so complete Luci would swear he could hear the beard behind him grow.
