A Dangerous Reality by Layla Wolfe is Now Available & Reviewed

Keep your lovers close—and your enemies in bed.

My club sent me to track him down. And when my mission was over, I never wanted another one again. When I found him, I kicked the crap out of Havelock Singer. I issued the mightiest beatdown of all time. Problem is, we’re evenly matched. We’re equals in every way, and when we finished whaling on each other, exhausted, we fell into each other’s arms.

I’ve never regretted it for an instant. It’s been the ride of my life. But loving another man in the MC world is a risky business. As if our business isn’t already brutal and ruthless enough, Lock’s homophobic sergeant-at-arms Stumpy gets an eyeful of our lovemaking and blackmails us into doing some of his dirty work, or be exposed for what we are—a couple of deviants. This run into the Indian reservation is sleazy and beneath us, but now I’m cornered, and I’ll do anything to keep my sweet Master from being lynched by his club.

When that kingpin Carmine Rojas got a load of my beautiful stallion Turk Blackburn, he’d stop at nothing to have him—and Rojas gets what he wants. It’s my fault we’re in this situation. I should’ve kicked Turk’s ass and sent him packing back to The Bare Bones. I wasn’t even close to being ready to come out, but now they’re forcing my hand.

I can hear my destiny calling me. Either I’ll slink back to my club like a hetero bounty hunter with no morals—and no respect from anyone in my own backyard—or I’ll step up to the plate and be the lion of the day. Either way, my lover and I are screwed. Our clubs are going to hound us underground or into another country before we escape this mess—if we don’t die trying.

“Living off the grid and being an outlaw brings a dangerous reality.” –Ron Perlman

This was quite an interesting read. You have a motorcycle club, you have gay men and you have a touch of BDSM, mix them all together and you have A Dangerous Reality.

It took me a few chapters to get into this book. It seemed like an onslaught of places and names that I had to keep going back over to keep it all straight. When the author was writing from Turk's POV it was more chaotic than the first few chapters in Lock's POV. I almost gave up on it but I am glad I didn't and powered through. This turned into a very good read.

I loved all the elements coming together. Just the idea of an m/m MC is a great concept. I know there are more to the Bare Bones series, I hope to see more of The Bent Zealots.

This is a fascinating book, and the series is definitely on my to read list. It is a clever idea, and I think well executed. Sometimes the writing from one POV or the other is a little confusing, but overall the writing style suits the subject and the characters. There are some distinctly gritty scenes, some displaying the camaraderie that we expect from these men, and some which are scorchingly hot. I would say it would be best not to read it on the commute to work – you may spend the day most frustrated!

I am looking forward to see how the new MC will progress, so I hope Ms. Wolfe is busy writing...
