“Havoc is another beautifully written story that is as heartfelt as it is sexy…” ~Amazon Review
Keyes Dixon’s life is challenging enough as a full patch member of the Disciples of Havoc Motorcycle Club but being a gay biker leaves him traveling down one tough road. With an abusive past and his vow to the club cementing his future, he doesn’t believe in love and steers clear of commitment. But a midnight ride leads to a chance meeting with a sexy pretty-boy in a wicked hot sports car that has him going down quicker than a Harley on ice. 
Cocky Assistant District Attorney Alec Pierce lives in the shadow of his politically connected family. A life of privilege doesn’t equal a life of love, a fact made obvious at every family gathering. Driven yet lonely, Alec yields to his family’s demands for his career path, hoping for the acceptance he craves. Until he meets a gorgeous biker who tips the scales in the favor of truth…and he can no longer live a lie.
Can two men from completely different worlds…and sides of the law…find common ground, or will all their desires only wreak Havoc?

3.5 Stars

Thanks to my co-blogger Jaymie and her love of MC books, I've had the chance of reading a few that I've enjoyed. So, of course, when we got the request to review Havoc by Kindle Alexander, who is one of my favorite authors, we jumped at the chance. While the book was technically good, I guess I was expecting more of it.

This is labeled as a MC MM Romance, and frankly, I just didn't feel as if Keyes was really part of the Motorcycle Club his dad was in. Yes, he worked for them, taking over the tire business from his father successfully, but aside from Dev, he didn't really have the support of his so-called brothers.

Aside from that, Keyes was very gruff and kind of introverted and that made it very difficult to connect to him. Alec was more likable, but I found him a tad pushy at first in his pursuit of Keyes. Still, he definitely was my favorite of the two. I can't say I loved them together, but the sex scenes were definitely steamy.

The storyline was interesting, but there were some unanswered questions and I'm not exactly a fan of HFN endings that might still blow up in the next book, but I'm intrigued enough to want to know what will happen next for Alec and Keyes.

3 Stars!

As soon as my Co-Blogger sent me the blurb for this one, I knew I had to have it. I mean, come on, this is perfect. A MC Romance that’s MM, you know that’s right up my alley. I live for books about men in Motorcycle Clubs. Of course, while reading Keyes and Alec’s story I started to realize, it wasn’t all I’d hoped for. How sad is that?!

First though let me say, I generally enjoy books by Kindle Alexander. I might even say a couple of their books are actually on my favorites list. So why didn’t this one do it for me? Honestly, I wasn’t feeling it completely. I wanted more action and more grit when it came to Keyes. I wanted to really believe he was a member of an MC or grew up in the culture. I needed it, actually.

Alec was likable and I could see myself really loving his character. I wanted more from him too but overall I enjoyed him. I felt like he was probably the more relatable character in the story and I was hoping he’d get to a point where he could just get what he wanted and not worry about what everyone else thought.

When it came to the connection these men had I was left wanting. I truly didn’t understand what really drew them to one another. We’re told about their chemistry but I’m not sure I believed it. They may have had the steaminess when they were together but it didn’t make me feel as if they were perfect for each other. The lack of HEA made that even more so because I have to read another book just to get some resolution.

Overall this wasn’t a bad book and I know plenty of readers will enjoy it. The premise is intriguing and it’s definitely a story you’ll want to find out how it ends. I just had certain expectations but that’s more on me than the writing.

Best Selling Author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer, and a genre-crosser who writes classic fantasy, romance, suspense, and erotica in both the male/male and male/female genres. It's always a surprise to see what's coming next!
I live in the suburbs of Dallas where it's true, the only thing bigger than an over active imagination, may be women's hair!
Usually, I try for funny. Humor is a major part of my life - I love to laugh, and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations - regardless of the situation, but jokes are a tricky deal... I don't want to offend anyone and jokes tend to offend. So instead I'm going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I'll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died - weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn't have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It's everything you think it would be times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have it all ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness - it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon released their brand new Kindle ereader. She had no idea it was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it.. It never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to begin to write with a dear friend in the fan fiction world of Facebook. She got me through those dark days with her unwavering support and friendship. There wasn't a time she wasn't there for me. Sometimes together and sometimes by myself, we built a world where Kindle lives and stands for peace, love and harmony. It's its own kind of support group. I know without question I wouldn't be here today without her.
