Publisher's Summary

Sean Rush is an adrenaline junkie. That's why he was in the Army, why he steals and races classic muscle cars, and why he can't stay away from bad boy Ryker, a Havoc Motorcycle Club lieutenant. Fortunately, Ryker can't seem to stay away from Sean - he's spent the last eight months breaking into Sean's apartment and stealing into his bed, leaving Sean physically satisfied but increasingly restless.
Sean has always avoided relationships. He likes to come and go without being controlled. And Ryker is possibly the most controlling man he's ever known. Still, he finds that he wants more from Ryker than their silent nighttime encounters.
Then one of Sean's thefts goes bad, and Ryker's protective instincts kick into overdrive. He takes Sean to the Havoc compound, determined to keep him safe. But Sean's past threatens the safety of Havoc - and everything Ryker holds dear. Worse, Ryker's hiding secrets of his own. Soon it's obvious that the adrenaline rush can't keep them together anymore. But maybe love can.

Definitely a wild ride!

What made the experience of listening to Running Wild the most enjoyable?

I'd already read the e-book so getting to listen and have these characters brought to life was so much fun.


What other book might you compare Running Wild to and why?

Perhaps the Matter of Time series by Mary Calmes. Ryker is very liken to Sam Kage in the big, brooding, you are mine period department.


What about Dorian Bane’s performance did you like?

Everything.


Who was the most memorable character of Running Wild and why?

Sean, for me at least. He grew and evolved a lot throughout the story.


Any additional comments?

This is one of my favorite books to read, I've read it multiple times, probably because SOA (Son's of anarchy) was a favorite TV show of mine and I always had this desire to see what would have happened had Jax and Opie gotten together. This story brought that fantasy to life for me. When I was listening I could actually picture Sean as Jax and Ryker as Opie and that only made the audiobook that much better.

I've listened to other stories with the narrator previously and it's been hit or miss. Definitely a hit this time around what with the deep, smokey, lust laced baritone voice he gave Ryker that completely fit every facet of his larger than life persona. Then you have Sean who is cocky, abrasive and standoffish. Mostly, that's an act he puts on to keep people at arms length. But Ryker has his number from the start and patiently waits it out until Sean figures out that the harder he fights it and tries to push Ryker away, he only winds up reeling him further in.

If you like stubborn alpha male bottoms and equally stubborn, self assured tops that wear leather and ride around on motorcycles and protect what belongs to them ferociously, then you'll LOVE this book!

Perfect pairing - Great story and Narrator!

SE Jakes has done it AGAIN. This series may even top/tie with the Hell or High Water series for me. Ryker is absolutely on par with Prophet for hot, bad a**, awesomeness… but maybe I should compare him to Mal… or Cillian… he is so bad ass that he always knows what to say and when to say it and what he does is ALMOST always right. Almost. Ryker is a S** GOD and yet so amazingly sweet that you just want to take him home with you. He. Sends. Flowers. (Insert swoon)

Sean is another great character. He is funny, and caring, and a little crazy and vulnerable, and tough… just like a good SE Jakes character should be. He is a great friend, a neurotic lover, an adrenaline junkie and an ex-soldier who suffers from PTSD. He also is Bad. A**. He has ninja car skills and can steal a car with one hand tied behind his back. His relationship with Ryker is sweet and funny and very, very hot, and sometimes frustrating.

The story is completely amazing. It grabbed me, threw me on the back of the bike and told me to hang on! There was literally never a slow moment or place I felt I wanted (or even could) skim. It was all vital, wonderful and riveting.

The love story is so completely satisfying and … hot. Enough said.

Jakes has added some vaguely paranormal stuff to this story that added a distinct charm and mystique to Havoc and its compound. I hope for future stories from Casey, maybe Sweet, maybe Noah – you never know right?

I totally recommend this book (and all SE Jakes books) and give this book 6 out of 5 hearts – it was that good. Really.

Audio
Dorian Bane does an AMAZING job with this! He really hits the mark for gruff and gritty MC member! He also really conveys Sean in just the right way, too! He's not the best when it comes to the non-dialog parts, but he very aptly conveys the emotions in a scene. I found this highly entertaining and a great way to enjoy this wonderful story!

Overall 5 of 5 stars
