A Gorgeous Mess (The Bent Zealots MC, #2)
by Layla Wolfe
Book 2 in The Bent Zealots MC series. This series is a spin-off from the authors Bare Bones MC series. However you do not need to have read those books or indeed book 1 in this series as it can be read as a standalone.
Ormond Tangier - Special effects make-up artists to the stars, Member of the newly formed Bent Zealots MC and self-confessed badge slut. Ormond's naturally submissive personality means he thrives on the attention he gets from an alpha male in a powerful position. So when he is partnered on a job with the very straight and extremely dominant Anson, he is soon forgetting all about his usual need for a badge and finds himself in need of the 1 man that may be out of his reach.
Anson Dineyazzie - Mercenary, Half Native american and very much in the closet. Back in the U.S and suffering from the effects of time spent in the Middle East, at 37 he is determined to find out more about his father, a member of the Bare Bones MC. Turk Blackman, the Prez of BZ can help, but he needs Anson to help him as well. Tasked with finding out who is using reservation kids on the Zealots turf to cook up Meth, he is paired up with the stunningly handsome Ormond. And that might be the biggest task of all - excepting his true sexuality or staying away from a man that has him feeling things he doesn't want to.
This is a great series. Heavy on the club action, unlike other MC reads this club is made up of gay men. Each story comes with both the club action that I love, but also focuses on 2 characters that each have issues holding them back from finding true happiness.
Ormond is openly gay but is also a man that has a very specific kink. This however masks the fact that he is lonely and actually suffers with self confidence about finding someone that can love him. It means that he only ever enters into empty relationships that often leave him unfulfilled.
Anson on the switch side is destined to stay in the closet. No-one knows he is gay and he has kept that side of himself active only overseas. When in the U.S he will only sleep with women and has a troubled 17 year old daughter to lay testament to that. Ormond however has the power to make Anson change his rules and take risks he has never taken before. So the question is - Can these 2 very different men with a strong attraction to each other, step out of the comfort zones they have created to protect their hearts. Well you will need to 1-click yourself and find out.
If like me you love your MC and M/M romance, then this series is a MUST READ. It is a real insight into both the dealings of an MC, Native American traditions and of finding love when and with a person you don't intend to. Well done Ms Wolfe, a great sequel to this unique MC series.

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.
ANSON: I was just a mercenary back from fighting the good fight overseas. I was on a quest for my father, my roots, looking for answers. Turk Blackburn, Bent Zealots MC Prez, ordered me on a fresh operation to prove myself, my guts, my valor. Infiltrate the Navajo Rez and find out who is claiming the Zealots’ turf, using kids to cook drugs.
My partner is the famous badge slut, Ormond Tangier, known far and wide for his mad oral skills, his subservience to anyone in uniform. Mercenaries don’t wear badges, but my dominant side soon has me all over that seductive Spanish servant. A man may as well have a few laughs while on a fatal mission. Because these things never end pleasantly.
ORMOND: I was flung into a life-or-death battle against the slimy Iceman, leader of a rival MC. Iceman is running all sorts of questionable ops on Bent Zealots land, and now Anson and I have to prove our street creds just to stake a claim in our own backyard.
I’m a friend of cops, firemen, and soldiers alike, but suddenly I only want one man ordering me around. Anson Dineyazzie, macho half-breed hired gun, has stolen more than just my heart. This was never supposed to happen.
ANSON: I swear I’m never falling for that service bottom Ormond. I’m accomplishing this op and going back to Afghanistan. But I have to wrest control of this Rez land from Iceman and the lethal hit man who has been trailing us. I’d bury anyone who got between me and Ormond. Does that mean I’m in love? God, I hope not. Don’t think I can take that again. Just need to get back onto the open road and blow the dust from my soul.
Publisher’s warning: This book is not for the faint of heart. It contains scenes of gay sex, illegal doings, violence, and forced seduction roleplay. There is no cliffhanger and there is a HEA.
