This is a book that is part of the new Havoc series. It’s the first book in the series and what a series it looks like it’s going to be. I loved it and can’t wait for the next book. This is S.E. Jakes at her best. I love it when she makes her characters so real you can reach out and slap them.
Sean Rush is an ex-vet. The only reason he was in the military to begin with was because he got caught stealing cars and fighting. He was young and loved the feel and the rush of stealing expensive cars, then he would race them before taking them to the intended client. It was the only thing that made him feel good in life – until Ryker.
Ryker was a biker in the Havoc MC. He would sneak in and f*ck Rush into the mattress, completely dominating him all night until he passed out from exhaustion. He would wake up in the morning and other than a single rose left, he would have never known Ryker was there. Well, he knew also by the way the room was torn up and his clothes were thrown all over the room. This went on for eight long months. Rush never knew when Ryker was going to break into his house and screw him. He loved it.
Of course with any MC, there always comes some kind of conflict. Then you had the trouble that Rush continued to find himself in and Ryker was having to come to save Rush’s ass on a regular basis. There were a lot of things that seemed to pull them apart and with these two rough characters, the admission of love would not come easily.
This story had the right amount of the things I like. Great characters that you fell in love with. Enough interesting things going on that kept you turning the page and chemistry, chemistry, chemistry with some great sex between Ryker and Rush. It shaped up to be a really great first book in a series that I’m looking forward to. Highly recommended!

The Book Description:
Sean Rush is an adrenaline junkie. That’s why he was in the Army, why he steals and races classic muscle cars . . . and why he can’t stay away from bad boy Ryker, a Havoc Motorcycle Club lieutenant. Fortunately, Ryker can’t seem to stay away from Sean—he’s spent the last eight months breaking into Sean’s apartment and stealing into his bed, leaving Sean physically satisfied but increasingly restless.
Sean has always avoided relationships. He likes to come and go without being controlled. And Ryker is possibly the most controlling man he’s ever known. Still, he finds that he wants more from Ryker than their silent nighttime encounters.
Then one of Sean’s thefts goes bad, and Ryker’s protective instincts kick into overdrive. He takes Sean to the Havoc compound, determined to keep him safe. But Sean’s past threatens the safety of Havoc—and everything Ryker holds dear. Worse, Ryker’s hiding secrets of his own. Soon it’s obvious that the adrenaline rush can’t keep them together anymore. But maybe love can.
