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, 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.
The Devil’s Ride is the second book in the Sex & Mayhem series by K. A. Merikan. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel with ease.
Tooth is the vice president of the Coffin Nails Motorcycle Club. He is on a personal quest to stop the group stealing organs from people that fall off the radar. Tooth never wanted to be a babysitter to the club president’s son but he falls for Lucifer, whose life was filled with neglect.
Lucifer was raised by his mother, and never knew his father. After her death, he was on his own to survive. He survived to whatever he had too, even becoming a hooker. Lucifer has very low self-esteem and it’s apparent in all that he does. What I loved about him was how he embraced who he was.
The connection between Lucifer and Tooth is intense. I enjoyed how much Tooth tried to resist Lucifer mainly because he wanted Lucifer to become comfortable with all the changes. The sex scenes were scorching.
I found this book well written with a unique plot. The main characters and the secondary characters were fascinating. While the ending was a little predictable, the book is filled with twists and turns that keep the reader entertained all the way though. I had a hard time putting this book down. Overall, this was a very enchanting book and I hope to see these characters again in the future.
