BLURB: In a club of mean bikers, being gay can get you killed, but love can save any man.
Sam ‘Solo’ Braun lives by one truth, the Grave Diggers Motorcycle Club, above all. The creed has served him well, giving him the only real family he’s ever known. He would die for his brothers and them for him, but they don’t know he prefers men over women. Coming out to a group of men who fear no one isn’t high on Solo’s priority list, especially because he’s never indulged in more than one-night stands.
Everything changes after one night with Eric James. For the first time, Solo can’t stop thinking about a single night he’d spent with a man. When fate intervenes, Solo comes face-to-face with his blue-eyed obsession, only to find out Eric is a cop. Solo hates cops, and so do his brothers in the club. However, Solo decides to gamble everything and spend more time with Eric under the guise of getting information.
Falling in love with a cop is a very dangerous proposition for a man in Solo’s position, so why can’t he walk away?
I love finding new good authors and Carol Lynne has just been added to my list, so I can’t say that it was the Author’s name that attracted me to read this book or the cover for once, in fact, it was the book title “Solo, Grave Diggers MC”. What an amazing series title – Grave Diggers MC. It immediately caught my eye and when I read the blurb? Hot sexy biker and a cool cop? Marvellous combination, I was so in!
For me, it was really Solo’s book all the way. His father walked out when he was young and left him with a drunk of a mother, if it wasn’t for the Pres. of the local MC, goodness knows what would have happened. The Club is now his family. What the Club doesn’t know is that Solo is Gay and he intends to keep it that way – he doesn’t have an early grave, death wish!
He keeps his anonymous pick-ups exactly that – anonymous. He meets a man in a bar, the all powerful attraction is instant and combustible! But after going to his house – a very nice house with very nice things in it – Solo flees after getting what he wanted, that’s him, he’s not going to change, he has his Club that’s all he needs. But he can’t shake off his time with “Blue”, he sees those blue eyes of his, over and over.
The Grave Diggers keep their streets “clean”. However, there is such real dodgy stuff being pushed out on their streets. It needs to stop before someone dies. When Solo stops a deal being done, he meets “Blue” again. However, Blue is not the pusher Solo thinks he is, but a cop! Blue hates cops as much as the pushers.
I don’t do spoilers, but the way Blue slowly starts to melt Solo’s iceberg exterior was expertly handled by the author and the sex scenes between these two? Still fanning myself thinking about them!
Carol Lynne then took us on a journey of secrets, homophobic hate by the Club, police corruption and also how Solo learns that his name doesn’t mean that he has to be by himself, he can let someone in and be loved for who he is!
Now I should point out that this book has just been re-released and I believe re-edited also, how much the Author has changed from the original book, I cannot comment on, as I said Carol Lynne is a new author to me, so just be aware.
So, why only 4* then? Well, the Epilogue at the end just didn’t cut it with me. I’ve already mentioned that I don’t do spoilers, so it’s hard, but it was all so out of character with the book, it was if the whole MC had suddenly had brain surgery that totally changed their character! and I didn’t think the car incident was necessary either, I felt it was bit of an anti-climax after such a good read – that’s my opinion and I’m sure others will disagree and think that the ending was perfect! We shall see in due course when further reviews surface.
Definitely will be checking out other books by this Author.
