Synopsis

— When life gives you blood, make mayhem. —

Grim. Assassin. Leather-clad sex god. Has the most unusual taste in men.
Misha. Mutilated. Afraid. Will never trust again.

Grim is a bloodthirsty killer, and he owns it. Gay in a world of outlaw bikers, he firmly stands his ground if anyone dares to cross him. He takes pleasure in showing homophobes their place and fucking his way through a life of carnage.

But there is a part of him always aching for something he cannot get. When by chance he saves the most perfect guy he’s ever met, he is not about to let him go. Even if it means he needs to smother his broken bird.

When a masked, bloodstained man rescues Misha from captivity, he doesn’t know if he should thank the menacing stranger or stab him and run. Grim is not the kind of man who takes no for an answer, and Misha might now be in more danger than when he was trapped as a sex slave.

Misha cannot deny though that Grim is as alluring as he is frightening, and once Misha realizes what power his body holds over Grim, he understands that taming the beast of a man could be within his reach.

But any possibility of a future together is like a house of cards when Zero, the sadistic crime lord who destroyed Misha’s life, sets out to get him back.

Will the ruthless biker assassin at Misha’s side be enough to conquer the monsters from his past?

Holy Crap! My heart raced through this story.  Both the good kind and the sweaty palms, edge of your seat kind.
I have read one previous book in this series, but it was not the one directly prior to this one and I was never lost, never felt like I was missing anything nor were the characters hard to follow.

Whew! With Grim’s demeanor, you’re right in the thick of things from the start of this story.  He finds himself in the presence of Misha, his sexual fantasy!  However, when he really gets a look at Misha, he sees a terrified human being.

Misha is a character that you can’t help but feel bad for – he has a tortured history – one where you can instantly picture a younger, less tortured boy.

You’re sucked right in to a tangled web of lies, deceit, torture, murder and mayhem.  It’s a non-stop roller-coaster ride from the first page to the last.  If you’re up for dark romances, scary, murderous characters then this book is definitely for you.

And, through it all, Grim and Misha are able to develop a connection that is so deep, trusting and loving.

I do wish that the antagonist had suffered far worse – it was not slow enough for me.

This was not one of my favorite books by this author.  I found Grim to be a bit disturbing and his fetish was quite twisted.  I did have a problem with that, but I did go on with reading it.  Misha on the other hand, when it was revealed what happened to him I felt so awful for him.

Even though I had some problems with the story I have to say once again they have written with a lot of feeling, but very dark, intense and twisted. This book took me to an uncomfortable zone at times, but like all their books do, it keeps you wanting to read more.  So please read the warnings so you know just what your getting.

oh boy, oh boy, this book was a trip.
So here we have book 8 of Merikan’s Coffin Nail’s MC series and it’s twisted as all get out. This is Grim’s story, an assassin who reminds me of a mixture of a puppy, a nutjob, a sweetheart, a kid and the Joker. Lmao
Grim finds Misha, a video porn star with no legs on a mission for the Coffin Nails. Grim spirits Misha away without the others knowing because he’s always liked Misha’s videos and has a thing for amputees. A fetish, really, He’s on a quest to win Misha’s heart and Misha…well he’s like “wtf?” haha
I actually really liked this book, with it’s dark humor and romance. Grim is disturbed…like mentally, and he knows it. The readers knows it, Misha knows it…but for some reason, I liked him. He’s not the type of person I ever wanna meet in a dark alley (lol) but I liked how the author portrayed him and never changed his personality. He was all kinds of crazy, and I liked his brand of crazy…in the book. In real life, I think it’s best that he be put in jail for the safety of others. O_O
Poor Misha. He’d been kidnapped, mutilated, abused and used as a sex toy, yet he was still strong. In the beginning he seemed weak, but hanging around Grim made him stronger. I liked that he never faded in the background with someone like Grim. He and Grim went together like peas and carrots.

I usually don’t like biker books but this one was really good. I loved how loving and caring Grim was towards Misha. I understand why Misha was hesitant towards Grim and his feelings for him. I can’t even imagine all that Misha went through, besides anxiety and trust issues he seemed pretty normal considering everything that was done to him for over five years. This book had great chemistry and character interaction. There was some intense scenes and the author kept me engaged the entire book.

I expected graphic violence. I expected violent, graphic sex. But I wasn’t quite ready for the amputee fetish. I have to admit that after loving KA Merikan’s Guns N Boys series, this is finally a bit too dark and a little too kinky for me.

For me, the violence and sex in the Guns N Boys series is softened with humour and some very tender scenes. But Dom and Seth are equals, partners. I think I found this more disturbing because Misha is a victim and Grim an unapologetic predator for much of the story. There is no humour. No banter between the men softens the harsh edges of the relationship. I’m used to blurry consent in these books but I still find it disturbing.

When I’m enjoying a KA Merikan book, I am aware of the clunky writing and editing errors but I find them easy to ignore. Because I was already struggling with this story, I found the typos quite distracting.

Despite my reservation about the story, I really enjoyed Misha’s character. His backstory is fascinating and his constant adjustment to his changing circumstances feels real and carefully written. There are parts of nomad Grim’s character I enjoyed as well. I just struggled with some of his actions at the start of the story and his fetish throughout.

I did enjoy the relationship between Misha and Grim more at the end of the story than I did at the start. When consent and affection started to replace fear and force, I started to engage more with the story. But the kink still made me a little queasy.
