Life has been known by a series of constants: Violence, anger, drugs, sex, death, heartbreak, pain, fear and the most common, hunger; Always hunger. Not the kind that can be satisfied with food, but the kind born of circumstance. The kind that not only claws within a gut, but settles into a heart, consumes a mind. Deeper—Encircles, penetrates the soul. Hunger for something more, something better, safer. Always just out of grasp—Craving—Starved.
It’s part of me.
Who I am.
Born of blood and violence, hunger is my fate.
Yet, the slightest things can change the directions of a life. An unplanned circumstance, random act—a connection—a chance event, like a lightning strike, fate is trumped.
Jamie is my lightning strike.
Tek Cain was cultivated from birth to lead the motorcycle gang, Crimson Eight. Jamie Ryan, his best friend, is destined to be his second. But forbidden desires have them questioning everything they know, and an undeniable bond makes them want more than their supposed brotherhood can provide. Their love could get them killed, but they are bound to each other—from the cradle to the grave.
SJD did it again. She was able to pull all the emotions out of me with this book. Jamie and Tek have got to be two of the strongest characters in this whole series in my opinion.
These two boys have lived more then one lifetime in their short lives on earth. Both was born on the same day and have been best friends from the start. Basically they have done everything together even join the motorcycle club Crimson VIII together that they grew up in. They had each other’s backs even when others did not. These two have been through hell with the club and have experienced everything from killing to protect the other to faking their own death to save one another.
Ending up in New York with Tek becoming a bouncer at Guards of Folsom they did not give into the temptation of adding a third into their mix. They have each other and if they want to experiment in the world of BDSM they will switch and experiment on each other even though they are both dominant individuals.
I just loved these two characters. They are the perfect compliment for each other. They both have the others back and are trustworthy to each other to a fault. Not to mention they love each other unconditionally. Even with all the bad that they have seen and done, both are positive people for the most part and they are both set on never going back to the bad and doing everything now above board.
This book was so good. I loved the background information that was given on how they grew up and how they ended up where they are now. And I loved seeing how loyal they are to one another and that never faltering. Amazing book. Can’t wait for the next one.
