An ATF agent who lives for danger finds what he craves from an outlaw biker.

It’s impossible for a one-percenter motorcycle club member to simply walk away—and no one knows that better than undercover agent Bram, who’s almost killed for trying. His cover isn’t blown—yet—but it’s only a matter of time. The Heathens won’t be satisfied until he’s dead, so he decides to lay low

The second book in the Havoc series centers around undercover ATF agent, Bram ‘Monk’ (32) and the the president of Havoc, Samuel ‘Sweet’ Sweeting (how old?). Sweet we met in book one, same with Bram's younger brother who has now gone missing. Bran however, is a new character. Broken and quite ready to accept that death is right around the corner, he's willing to do everything it takes to find his brother, even entering a MC club. This is where he meet Sweet, who

READ MY REVIEW ON THE BLOG





This was my first book by SE Jakes but it definitely won't be my last.

Now, it takes some suspension of disbelief if you read an MM story about homosexuality in a so obviously heterosexual environment like a motorcycle club, even more so in a one-percenter. That is not to say that it doesn't happen. What do I know, right? It didn't take me long to get sucked into this story that had a little bit of everything. Action, secrets and a (not so sweet) love story.

I enjoyed Br

Really great - dark, gritty and intense ! Bram is on the run after being beaten and left for dead by the MC he was undercover in. After being sold out, on the run, Bram looks for his missing brother and ends up at another MC. Bravado aside, Bram has a melt down and catches the eye of the Pres Sweet. The connection begins and the story unfolds. Loved it

SE Jakes is back and hot as ever! I reread Running Wild right before this and it was good but didn’t really hit all the right notes for me. Sweet and Bram were everything I love about Jake’s books. It reminded me a little of some of the Men of Honor series, which are all-time favorites of mine. Adding the whole MC background and atmosphere throttled it right up! The characters are nearly always tough, broken men who deal with life and death and dark situations; bad boys with their own code of ho ...more

This was, unsurprisingly, a good book. Strong characters, engaging story, adrenaline spiking adventure/danger and kinky sex. Looking forward to the next one.

3. 5 stars rounded down to 3 because still no 1/2 stars here on GR.

Running on, running on empty Running on, running blind...

When I saw the title of this book I have to admit one of my first thoughts was I wonder if the author was a tiny bit motivated by the 1977 Jackson Brown song...'Running on Empty' when she picked the title for this book. I don't know about the rest of you but I graduated from high school that year? Anyways, it was just a random thought that floated through my brain when I

Audio Edition review

He's a dead man. One MC thinks he's a traitor and he's hiding what he really is to yet another. All while trying to help his brother. Talk about an adrenaline rush. I craved this one so much and it didn't stint on the gut-clenching thrills and hot and dirty-style romance in the biker world.

Running Blind is book two in the Havoc series. In a pinch, it could be read out of order, but I thought it had a natural build on the book before it which has ties to the author's other se

"But really, with the number of secrets and lies between them, how far could this really go?"

I read Running Blind as a standalone. It was my introduction to S.E. Jakes. Yeah, those that follow my reviews probably guessed right away that it was the motorcycle on the cover that got my attention. It's no secret that I'm a badass biker addict and MC Romance is my favorite genre.

While this is the second book in the Havoc series I read it as a standalone. I had no problem jumping right in. The c

I will start by saying welcome back S.E. Jakes you did not disappoint with this story. I loved Bram and Sweet, and their chemistry was wonderful together.

Not my fave SE Jakes it has to be said, and it's my fault for trying to get into this series when I normally have issues with Motor Cycle club reads.

Will definitely be looking out for more Tommy and Proph, but stick a fork in me I'm done with this one at 45%.

I was given a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

Oh. My. God. The grit, the angst and the heartbreak in this book! The second book in this series starts with an undercover ATF agent searching for his lost brother. Bram’s investigation takes him to a notorious MC and into the path of the club’s president, Sweet. Bram is in hiding and still recovering from a horrific assault. Sweet has to figure out how far he can trust the man he can’t stay away from.

Bram and Sweet are fabulou

Biker With A Twist

This is a first time author for me and even though it was the second book in the series I was able to jump right in and not miss a beat. Since I love MC reads and seen that bike on the cover I knew I had to check it out. This is an M/M biker book and of course the bad*ss alpha males were coming out of the woodwork.

Bram left the hospital after being nearly beaten to death by the Heathens MC of which he was a patched in member of and went searching for his missing brother in Havo

I suck at reviews. (this really isn't a review) Hundreds of books & I think I've written 3. But I just had to say words can't express how much I have missed reading S.E. Jakes writings. I'm hoping this isn't a one off & she is really back. Just spent the whole morning reading this & absolutely loved Bram & Sweet story.

This one was intense. I liked this one better. It is one hell of a ride. Of course, undercover work is no picnic. This one kept you on the edge. Not quite sure how things would turn out. It kept you guessing.

The story starts out on an intense note. Bram has suffered a beat down from the Heathens for trying to leave the club. Someone ratted him out, but he has no clue who just yet. Although he has an idea. He was supposed to be able to make a clean get away. Thank heavens no one knows he's ATF.

I received a copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads

I had not read anything by Jakes before so it was with a pleasant surprise that I really enjoyed this book! I also have not read Havoc #1, so i believe that this can be read as a stand alone although I would like to read Havoc #1 now! This is an MC book but with an M/M twist. I found the men of Havoc to be just the right amount of masculine and rough with the perfect amount of comfortable with their orientation. Sweet is the leade

I'm really looking forward to more stories about the Havoc MC. Definitely want to read Linc and Gypsy's story. I'm a big fan of SE Jakes--after discovering her via the BeVutched group here on GR, I read Dirty Deeds, feel in book-love, and Jakes became my gateway author for m/m books. I'm excited that this series will continue, and I am looking forward to many of the other serials/sequels upcoming from her other 'verses.

SE Jakes is back!! What a ride (pun intended) this story is. Bram and Sweet are a classic match up of testoserone and charisma...okay and more than a touch of stubborn. Sweet dominates his world but worries if he can save the man he is coming to love. Bram is caught. Family ties. Work entanglements. A situation that is totally out of his control.

The writing is fast paced and snarky. I could not put this book down. I can't wait to see what happens next. Welcome back Stef!

This was my first book by this author and I loved it. This also was my first MC romance.
The audiobook was awesome, I will definitely listen to the others in this series, narrator Mark Larchmont did a great job, his voice matched the book perfect. This was his first M/M book and he did awesome.

Its been a while since I read book one and had to go back to read my notes.
This is a different pair to book 1.
Bram is looking for his brother and ends up in Havoc country, a rival MC. There he meets Sweet, the president of the MC.
There is alot to this book. Bram has a background that you learn as you read the book.
I am hoping that book 3 will be Linc and Gypsy's story.

Fast paced erotic biker story with a star-crossed lovers' theme.

Definitely page-flipping good. Not realistic, but don't think that's the objective with a m/m biker porn read. The more dubious moral elements are definitely kept in the shadows to allow this ATF agent/MC president storyline to work. A popcorn read, but tasty with a sprinkle of power play.

Completes my I 🖤 Bad Boys Challenge.

It's been a while since I read and reviewed Running Wild, the first book in the Havoc series. I probably should have re-read Running Wild before I started Running Blind (and I probably will), but it didn't take me long to catch up.

Bram was in a tough spot... he was working undercover and there were few people he could trust. Given his recent history, he most definitely shouldn't be trusting anyone in a MC, but he needed to find his brother. Since Linc's closest last known connections were to Hav

Yes, it's here!

I was so happy when I got the notification about this book. SE Jakes is one of my favourite authors and I'm thrilled that she's back.
And this one just slams it out of the park right away. I have a weakness for men on MCs and I love the dynamic between Sweet, the president of Havoc MC and Bram the undercover ATF agent.
They're both equally strong, but at the same time broken and what they find in each other is just the one thing they need.
But nothing is easy in a world of betrayal,
