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.

A Rush From Start to Finsh!

If you could sum up Running Wild in three words, what would they be?

Gritty, Intense, Wild

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

Michele Mannon, Cecy Robson, Aleksandr Voinov, or Abigail Roux's books all come to mind. Lots of differences, but there are qualities shared by all of them in a 'leap into danger- damn the torpedoes anti-hero' type character and storyline.

Have you listened to any of Dorian Bane’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I certainly have. I suspect that I would probably purchase a dissertation on pond scum properties if he was narrating at this point. (Kidding, wouldn't even listen to that, ever)

I do have others I prefer, but the margin is narrow really in likeability. I suspect it's my opinion of the story itself rather than an inconsistency in narrator.

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

While Sean Rush bowled me over with his issues and Ryker was enigmatic and a source of curiosity and appeal for me, I was actually vastly amused by a certain friendly rival MC president who had an impish streak

Any additional comments?

I received this book from Riptide Publishing in exchange for an honest review.

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.

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
