You don’t fuck with the club president’s son.

Tooth. Vice President of the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club. On a neverending quest for vengeance. The last thing he needs is becoming a permanent babysitter for a male hooker.

Lucifer. Fallen. Lost. Alone.

After a childhood filled with neglect and abuse, followed by his mother’s suicide, Lucifer set out into the world alone. There was nothing for him out there other than taking it one day at a time. As the bastard son of the Coffin Nails club president, Lucifer never got much fatherly love. So when the Nails show up at the strip joint Lucifer works in, the last thing he expects is to be put in the custody of Tooth, the Nails Vice President famous for his gruesome interrogation techniques. The man proves to be the sexiest beast Lucifer has ever met. He’s also older, straight, and an itch Luci can’t ever scratch.

Tooth’s life came to a halt twelve years ago. His lover got brutally murdered, police never found the perpetrators, and all leads were dead ends. To find peace and his own justice, Tooth joined the Coffin Nails, but years on, he’s gotten nowhere with the case, yet still lives on with the burning fire for revenge.

Babysitting a deeply scarred teenager with a talent for disappearing is the last thing on his bucket list. He promised himself to never get attached to someone like him again. To make sure the openly gay boy is safe in the clubhouse, Tooth is stuck keeping an eye on him. The big, blue, attention seeking gaze is drawing Tooth in, but fucking the president’s son is a complete no-go, even when both their feelings go beyond lust.

What Tooth doesn’t know is that Lucifer might hold the key to the closure Tooth so desperately needs.

So first off, I’m reading this series entirely out of order, but I just cannot be bothered to give any fucks! YESSSSSSS!!!Tooth and Lucifer were A.M.A.Z.I.N.G. Talk about a sloooooow motherfucking burn, it hurts so good! Tooth had the self-control of a God as Lucifer continually and shamelessly flirts and thrown himself at Tooth. But Tooth is a big ‘ol softie and he knows what’s best for Lucifer, so he waits. But the friendship that develops is absolutely swoon worthy, with little snippets of sexy spankings when Lucifer is naughty and needs to be punished. Completely platonic spanking though… *cough *cough.

This book has some D.R.A.M.A. But fear not, Tooth is a steady presence throughout that keeps them on a relatively even keel as Lucifer stumbles and cries his way though his new and unwanted life in the Coffin Nails MC. The drama surrounds (eventually) learning about and dealing with Lucifer’s past, as well as the culmination of the case that Tooth has been trying to solve ever since his lovers murder 12 years ago.

It was wonderful to see Lucifer’s relationship with his father, as well as all the bikers, change and grow throughout the course of the book. It felt genuine in that they didn’t easily accept his sexuality, but grew to love and understand him over time. I even loved the addition of the Queen Bitch as it reminded me of the psycho yet protective Gemma from Sons Of Anarchy.

The point being, I have a life. I have responsibilities. A job and whatnot. … I stayed up until 4 a.m. reading. Whether crying or panting or swooning, I just couldn’t put it the fuck down. For those of you who are concerned, the BDSM is very light IMHO. And while the newest (and also awesome) installment in this series, Red Hot, displays a rough and unhealthy relationship, Tooth and Lucifer are absolutely perfect together in every way. Bloody teeth and all!
