This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there.

When I first read the blurb for this story, I was somewhat skeptical about it being savage or vicious, after all, blurbs are often so misleading. This time the blurb was right, and the book is brutal. The sex is rough, at times non-consensual, the fights are bloody and the told events from the past were not written to spare the sensible readers. I for one loved that. I enjoyed the sex scenes because I do like

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

Steele is part owner of the club Punch Back and is fed up to the back-teeth with it but he has no way out. Dane is asked to put his life on the line by going undercover at the club; he accepts it gladly willing to do anything to get revenge on the family that destroyed his life. When these two meet they find they have to rely on each other to stay alive.

Wow this is a brutal, gritty, get your teeth into story

I never read anything by this author before but the blurb is a bit intriguing. I'm in a mood for something darker or edgy and I must admit this one has it. The fights are brutal, savage, animalistic. The losers will being fuc*ed by the two owners, Steele and his lover, Brice. So there is a m/m/m scene in the first chapter that is nowhere consentual for the loser. I usually stay away from m/m/m but this fits the story very well, and it does show the dark side of the club.

I like both Ste

This plotted story was dramatic, intense and, in some parts, even brutal. I liked Dane and Steele, as main characters, equally. The attraction between them was intense and real. And they were hot together. I have to admit, the story was to short. I wouldn't mind reading it longer.
