A man without scars never had to fight for something he believed in.
A new relationship takes time and effort. A new relationship with Orlando de la Pena takes a whole lot more. As a Dom, Rogue knows what he wants, but Orlando refuses to fit neatly into the box labeled ‘submissive’. He’s feisty, demanding and far too pretty for his own good.
Orlando loves Rogue and he’s learning to love The Wyverns, but he hates being stuck out in the desert. Finding a niche in the world of bikes and fierce warriors is difficult, and Orlando’s impatience gets the better of him. He walks out into the desert and runs in to an antisocial diamondback.
Rogue has more than one problem to deal with. The Longhorns MC issues a challenge for territory. The Bellazi cartel is out for Wyvern blood. The Wyverns are under siege, and Rogue has to work out how to save not just Orlando, but all of them.
Orlando doesn't mean to go getting himself into trouble. But he is having a hard time adapting to life with the Wyverns. Unfortunately, due to threats from the outside, like the Bellazi Clan, Rogue has no choice but to keep him confined to their desert home. It's not ideal, but it is the only way Rogue can think of to keep his little sub safe. Orlando doesn't understand.
"I'm so fucking bored. I'm sick of being the on-call skivvy for this bunch of borderline psychotic cavemen. I need to breathe some air that hasn't been spat out of an air-conditioning unit."
Going for a walk is not normally a problem, but it is when you do it in a desert. When Orlando manages to sneak out, after Rogue and most of the others had left for the afternoon, all he wanted to do was have five minutes away from the smell of oil and leather.
I found it hard to get a handle on Rogue, even though I did read book one, which was when Rogue and Orlando met. But when Orlando gets hurt, Rogue has some serious thinking to do - about what the man actually means to him and why. But of course, being a big mean rugged biker also means that Rogue can't express it.
This was a good book, but I preferred the first one. I felt this was more like a chapter in an ongoing saga, rather than a sequel, and while it was good to catch up with Rogue and his boys again, I do hope the next book is quick in coming, because I am sure there is a lot more to learn about this group. There were quite a few hints of other pairings with the other bikers, so maybe we will get to see a bit of them as well.
Favorite Quote: From the moment we met, we were as inevitable as this sunset and just as unstoppable.
