The Devil’s Ride by K.A. Merikan Spotlight, Excerpt & Review!

K.A. Meriken - The Devil's Ride Banner1

Hop on the bitch seat and ride with Tooth, the feared vice president of the Coffin Nails motorcycle club. No one wants to end up in his dentist’s chair, deep underneath the club compound, but his bed? That might be another matter. Lucifer, the bastard son of Tooth’s friend, is used to doing things his way, and being under supervision of the most intimidating man he ever met is the last thing he wants. At least until he understands that there’s no place safer than the mattress at the feet of Tooth’s bed.

I enjoy stories with plenty sexual tension that for one reason or another can’t be resolved right away. That’s the case with The Devil’s Ride. Tooth and Luci can’t, or rather may not be together for a variety of reasons, and with danger lurking right behind the corner, the stakes are getting higher with every chapter. The book will is out December 5th, and if you want to know more, here’s the blurb and an excerpt 🙂 There’s also a pinterest with some inspiration for the book: http://www.pinterest.com/KAMerikan/sex-mayhem-2/

The Devil’s Ride

(Sex & Mayhem 02)
by

K.A. Merikan

— 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.

K.A. Meriken - The Devil's Ride

Excerpt

Luci slid under his comforter. As painful as the smacks on the hands were, he had a feeling Tooth would protect him from anyone else. Especially since it was an order from Priest. “I heard at the party that there is a gay biker in the Coffin Nails. That he’s a nomad. Who is he?”

Tooth turned to his side with a wide grin. “Yeah, he’s kinda famous in the club. Nobody dares to fuck with him.”

Luci was getting sleepy before, but this new information had his imagination spinning. He looked up at Tooth in the darkness. “Really? Is he a badass?”

Tooth turned to his back again and looked at the ceiling. “He’s the guy you call when you want someone dead. Why, you interested?”

Luci gaped at Tooth’s profile hidden in the bush of hair. “I can think of someone I want dead,” he whispered, afraid saying it out-loud would make it too real. He wished he could just forget that man instead.

Tooth looked at him in the darkness, the whites of his eyes shining through. “Hope it’s not me.”

“No, but be careful not to end up on my list.” Luci smirked. “So this nomad guy, is he handsome? You think he’d go out with me?”

Tooth laughed. “I don’t think you’d be his type. Look for someone else.”

“Why not? I could get more muscle if that’s the thing. I’m still growing.”

“You have too many legs.”

Reviewer: Prime

Review: I wasn’t particularly keen on the first book in this series, Road of No Return. I’ll freely admit to that. I liked it but I suppose I just couldn’t get hooked to the characters and sort of disliked one MC. It wasn’t so much the gritty darkness. That is a good thing because this is a book that is of the same vein as the first. The story is gritty, full of violence and sex. And with this one, The Devil’s Ride, I really love and somewhat relate to the characters. I suppose, we are all entitled to the odd revenge fantasy.

Both Tooth (aka Jason) and Luci (aka Lucifer) are wonderful characters – dark, gritty, violent and broken, but wonderful. However, as wonderful as he is, it’s not difficult to remember that Tooth is a person bent on revenge and extremely violent, especially when it comes to those he is loyal to, mostly his club. He’s the VP of the Coffin Nails club and with the name Tooth; you know he’s done some pretty bad stuff to get to where he was twelve years after joining the club. In a strange way, Tooth is broken, which is how he became a member of the gang.

Lucifer, as he was named by his mother, is the bastard son to the Coffin Nails president, Priest. He’s never been truly acknowledged or taken care of by his father, and at first, it’s pretty clear that his half-brother hates him, while his half-sister doesn’t know about him. He’s broken, frightened and severely damaged after all he’s seen and done in his short life.

The over arching plot line involves another more “evil” or “crooked” group who deal in a probably more heinous trade than Coffin Nails ever would. It certainly makes the Club tamer than that featured in Road of No Return. It also deeply involves both Luci and Tooth. Most, if not all, the characters seem to have some sort of charm, especially in light of the fact that Luci is known to be gay. This is tidily explained away by there being an openly gay member of the club who actually never appears.

The relationships in this book are wonderful as they all evolve the longer Luci stays with the motorcycle club. Tooth and Luci have an interesting dynamic. Yes, there is 12 years age difference, but I didn’t think it was too excessive. Two other interesting relationships are Luci and Priest, as well as that between Luci and his brother, Bell (Beelzebub). Apparently, Priest is a Satanist, hence the kid’s names.

This is a fantastic read if you’re looking for something a bit darker than the norm, with a bit of suspense and intrigue thrown on top of the story of badass bikers.
