Summary

Fresh meat in prison.

Charley Hughes never imagined he would find himself in lockup, but when King promises that his brothers-in-arms will protect him, Charley expects his time on the inside to be easy. He doesn't factor in Scar, his mean as hell - and handsome - cellmate. Scar seems to have one goal only, to get into Charley’s pants. Charley has never been with a man before and doesn’t plan to start.

Driven by isolation.

Colton “Scar” Hebb went to prison years ago. He willingly took the fall for his motorcycle club. Scar is as loyal and brutal as they come, but he's also lonely. The moment he sets eyes on Charley, he wants him. Charley is playing hard to get, though. It’s a good thing Scar enjoys a chase.

Predator and prey.

The longer Charley holds out against Scar’s advances, the more dangerous prison life gets for him. Between rival MC clubs and guards, he's constantly on high alert. Scar is rough and scary, but at least he's on Charley's side. The more time Charley spends with Scar, the weaker his resolve becomes to hold out against him. What will happen when Charley no longer wants to resist the attraction?

Scar and Charlie

Love this series and this book is no different. Most of the book both Charlie and Scar are in Prison and we see how they fall in love and get on with their lives. Can't wait to continue the series

Narration did this prison story no favours

Member of the Kings Motorcycle Club, Charley ends sharing a cell in medium security prison with Scar. While Scar clearly wants him, Charley is still sorting out his feelings. While there were some violence, this prison didn’t feel that menacing or real, and I couldn’t connect with either of the main characters, maybe because ... 🎧 the narrator did the story no favours: his tone and style were cartoonish, his British character sounded like a pirate. His voice might suit a young college story, but certainly not members of a dangerous motorcycle club or violent prisoners. I can see that reviewers of other audiobooks by this narrator have had similar issues so I’m puzzled why authors would keep using him.

Good Story

I enjoyed Scar and Charlie's story. They both learned what it is to love someone and want to do what ever they can to make each other happy.

Love this series

I love the characters in this series. If you like your males gruff and mean but a soft spot for their lovers this is your series. The characters make you laugh but keep you on the edge of your seat.

Great listen.

This is another great listen in this series. Charly and Scar's story is entertaining. I really like the chemistry between these two. Kaeomakana Tiwanak does a good job with the narration.

Kept my attention

This is the first story I’ve listened to by this author. I love MM and MC books so put them together and I had to try it. The story is interesting and kept my attention. The characters are good. The story flow felt right. I have not heard the previous stories in this series and this may have helped had I done so. My only negative with this story is I feel Charlie is a little too fast to “become gay”. He is stating he isn’t ….He Isn’t and them goes to it. I believe he might have been that all along but I think there should have been more mental back and forth and maybe more fighting it before all of a sudden he is 100%. My other problem is I didn’t feel the Narrator. He is probably good but I didn’t feel he fit this character. For a MC and prisoner I feel he is more like the evil villain in a child’s book. As it went on he got better but overall this is not his type character in my opinion. I don’t know if the author was given a choice in Narrator’s since I know sometimes they have to go with who they are given. That’s the reason I’m not really taking away points for the Narration. I will probably listen to more by this author to find out more about this series. I was given a free copy and this is a voluntary review.

Nice story

Charley takes the fall for his MC and goes to jail. His bunk mate Scar is tasked with protecting him by the leader of the MC.

Charley and Scar’s dance was entertaining and both sweet and a little bit sad. Their relationship wasn’t your usual romance. Scar didn’t force Charley into anything but he didn’t let up on him either.

The story pulled no punches but wasn’t too dark. The supporting characters were well defined and had a definite impact on the storyline.

The narration was a bit of a disappointment. The narrators voice just wasn’t deep enough to pull off the gruff characters. I did like the story though.

sweet bliss

Just reading the blurb I giggled, but listening to the story was everything and more than I imagined and hoped for!!! The reunion scenes are hot and hilarious. They even made me laugh at some of the amorous moments. Yes, there is action and drama, but I felt so lighthearted with warm and fuzzies after listening to this one. Sweet bliss. I voluntarily listened to a free copy of this and am giving an honest review.

Wow

Loved this story. This is book three in the series and was soo good. I felt bad for Charley when he went to jail but lotes of things happened it is exciting and dangerous for him but his cell mate Scar is ruff and tough and wants Charley as his. Great from start to finish. Can’t wait for more.
