before this and it was good but didn t really hit all the right notes for me Sweet and Bram were everything I love about Jake s books It reminded me a little of some of the Men of Honor series, which are all time favorites of mine Adding the whole MC background and atmosphere throttled it right up The characters are nearly always tough, broken men who deal with life and death and dark situations bad boys with their own code of honor These kind of books are my crack Sweet and Bram are hot as fire in bed, with a shared love of kink but little trust when the safety of their brothers is at stake I loved the volatility of their connection and the rapid pace of the action putting them in opposition only to find they were really on the same side It could have become annoying with so much pushing and pulling but because it was each trying to protect the other, the connection and love showed through Their chemistry was awesome The shifting scenarios of the plot were complex and satisfying I don t know what kept the author out of the scene for so long but I m just thrilled she s taken to the keyboard once again I don t know what happened to my review so there isn t one I ll have to page through this again to remember what I thought. 3 5 stars rounded down to 3 because still no 1 2 stars here on GR Running on, running on empty Running on, running blind When I saw the title of this book I have to admit one of my first thoughts was I wonder if the author was a tiny bit motivated by the 1977 Jackson Brown song Running on Empty when she picked the title for this book I don t know about the rest of you but I graduated from high school that year Anyways, it was just a random thought that floated through my brain when 3 5 stars rounded down to 3 because still no 1 2 stars here on GR Running on, running on empty Running on, running blind When I saw the title of this book I have to admit one of my first thoughts was I wonder if the author was a tiny bit motivated by the 1977 Jackson Brown song Running on Empty when she picked the title for this book I don t know about the rest of you but I graduated from high school that year Anyways, it was just a random thought that floated through my brain when I saw the book title The story not to confuse anyone is set in the present.When Bram tries to leave The Heathens Motorcycle Clue he learns the hard way that if getting in was painful getting out will damned near kill him Bram s not really a biker but if The Heathens find out that he s actually an undecover ATF agent what he will be is a dead man So after a somewhat failed attempt to leave that nearly cost him his life and finding out that his brother Linc is missing he does the only logical thing he canhe heads to Shades Run the last place where his brother was known to be and in less than a day he captures the attention of Sweet , who s not just any Havoc membernope, turns out he s the president of the Havoc MC and as much as he wants to stay off of any Motorcycle Club s radar finding himself on Havoc s also offers him a level of protection that like it or not he s going to need if he hopes to survive much less make progress in his search for his brother.As Bram and Sweet work together to try and find Linc while each man tries to keep his secrets hidden both men find that they may be able to hide their secrets but they re not so good at guarding their heart.Bram and Sweet s relationship is often times a case of come here, come here, get away, get away as both men keep trying to throw up obstacles to why they shouldn t be togetherto be fair Bram does thisoften than Sweet, but Sweet manages to throw his obstacles in there as well all the time never letting them got in the way when he thinks Bram needs saving or protection.And I have to admit that once again I found the Havoc MC to be an oxymoron all on it s own They re bad assed bikers who will mess you up in a heartbeat if you mess with them or break their code and all while helping you if you re in trouble and they feel your cause is justin a sentence they are unlike any biker club I ve ever heard of but again it s fiction and the fun thing about that is the story can go pretty much where ever the author wants to take it In spite of the fact that this may seem a little unlikely for me it s also reflective of the fact that in the real world things are often not always how they appear to be Overall I found that I enjoyed this story a bitthan Running Wild however, I don t think I would have if I hadn t listened to that audio book first since a lot of the characters from Running Wild play a role in this book someso than otherssuch as sweet who was secondary character in Running Wild but who s a main character here and while Bram is essentially new to the story Linc is a good friend to Noah and Sean who is also known as Rush and there are a some others but I ll leave them for readers to discover when they are enjoying the story.Now about the narratorI m one of those people who usually like the consistency of the same narrator from story to story in a seriesunlessthat s right unless the MCs are different from story to storyof course having said that should a future story have Ryker and Sean as the MCs than I admit it I would be happiest having their voices reprised by Dorian Bane rather than another narratorthat s just how I roll Now back to this book and this narratorMark Larchmont is not only a new to me narrator but it would appear that he s new to the world of audio book narrating in general Running Blind is currently the only audio book he has to his credit on audible, however, when I had a peek at his site it tells me that he s currently working on another audio book for S.E Jakes and there was a sound clip for a m f bookthat I was unable to find a title for I found all this because I was honestly hoping that there were other books of his that I could check out I really enjoyed this one and while I liked Dorian Bane s performance during Running Wild I have to admit I think for me I enjoyed the audio on this one just a tiny bit hence the 3.5 stars and I m definitely going to be looking out forbu this narrator An audio book of Running Blind was graciously provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review oh my god, this book is out oh my god, this book is out Not my fave SE Jakes it has to be said, and it s my fault for trying to get into this series when I normally have issues with Motor Cycle club reads.Will definitely be looking out forTommy and Proph, but stick a fork in me I m done with this one at 45%.
