Broken Sun by B.D. Roca

James Morgan: outlaw in a ruthless biker club, the Bastard Legion. Willing to do whatever he must to claw his way to the top of the club’s hierarchy.

Two things stand in the way of his ambitions: his heroin-addicted brother and his bisexuality. In Morgan’s world, his attraction to men is a death sentence, and he has no desire to pursue it… until he tangles with Luc Sinclair.

Luc Sinclair: fellow Bastard Legion biker. Tattoo artist. Rebel who wants out of a club he’s grown to despise.

Luc has a sister he’s protecting from a Legion ex-boyfriend. Saving her makes him a target. Morgan intervenes, and all bets are off. The sex is as fierce and passionate as it is dangerous. But when Morgan’s junkie brother learns of the relationship, he sees a way to advance in the Legion and take out a brother he hates. Their three worlds collide—one is left for dead, another fighting for life, and the bond between them broken.

In a dark and violent world where it’s every man for himself, finding their way back to each other and the only truth they’ve ever found will be a long, hard fight.

This is a dark, gritty, and intense read. Morgan and Luc are enmeshed in the same biker gang – Morgan as an ambitious enforcer and Luc as a club member desperate to get out. Theirs is a world of dangerous scheming conflicted loyalties.

I loved both of these men. Luc risks his life for his sister’s safety. He is a talented tattoo artist desperate for a chance to start fresh outside the club. He is gentle and a little naïve and he isn’t as good at hiding his sexuality as he thinks he is. And every time I wanted to feel sorry for him, he surprised me with his strength and resilience.

Morgan is careful, he’s ruthless, and he is ambitious. He can’t see a life for himself outside of the club and he is willing to sacrifice himself to keep those he cares about safe.

I loved the connection between Luc and Morgan. Morgan’s almost childlike wonder at the chemistry between him and Luc is wonderful. I was less keen on the drawn out angst and miscommunication between Luc and Morgan, but when they were together, they were pretty much perfect.

I really enjoyed this story – my only reservation is that the plot seems to ramble. The story spans more than a decade and as well as the time lapse, there are several subplots that don’t necessarily add to the main storyline. At times, the focus drifts from Morgan and Luc to the people around them. The result is uneven pacing. For me, too many important events are summarised or recapped while less important moments are explored in detail.

B.D. ROCA spent her early years growing up in Brisbane in a series of crumbling old houses laced with the smell of frangipani and surrounded by the hum of cicadas. Her gran raised her on ghost stories, quirky family history, and told her to beat up anyone who gave her attitude. This was not advice she took, although it does make a certain amount of sense. It may also account for her love of tough characters with a heart of gold.

Between the old houses, feral cats, steamy heat, and history lessons, it was pure Australian gothic. She’s traveled a lot since Brisbane, but naturally her first stories were all about the dark and mysterious. Writing romance is a whole lot more fun, although occasionally a little of the wicked does creep in. For all that, B.D. is a pragmatic romantic who stubbornly believes that ultimately, real love is the only thing that matters and the best families can be the ones you collect along the way.
