Genre: Gay Biker Romance

Blurb:Andrew King’s life wasn’t what he’d expected it to be. At thirty he was a single dad who drove his rig to make ends meet and played in his band Executioners on the weekends. King saw himself being a husband again one day because that’s what was expected. When Melanie had gotten pregnant, their parents had given them one choice—they’d stuck it out a year. At twenty-eight, he became a single dad when Melanie went off to college. He loved his son more than anything, and they’d quickly fell into a life of just the two of them, well, not just the two of them there was Lincoln too. His ex-wife was still his best friend. They all co-parented Mal, it was natural and right.

Lincoln Church lived for his nephew and his teaching job. While King, his ex-brother-in-law, worked driving a truck. As a result, Mal ended up living with him most of the time. It was the closest Linc would ever come to being a dad. The only bleak spot in his life was his feelings for King which he thought would never be reciprocated. It wasn’t so bad because he still had King and Mal in his life and that meant the world to him.

A stupid accident and a broken leg sidelined King, keeping him off the road. When King needed help, Lincoln rushed in, and King couldn’t deny his attraction or love for Lincoln. Would one kiss ruin the weird, little family they’d created?

My Review: Andrew King has been in love with the same man for over a decade. There is only one issue, Lincoln Church is King’s ex-wife’s brother. King and his ex Melanie are childhood best friends who fell in bed together and got pregnant before their sexuality had been truly solidified. They have a beautiful son called Mal and a truly unorthodox family which is co-parented by all three adults. Linc takes care of Mal while King is on the road being a truck driver and Melanie is away at school studying to become a nurse. They usually meet somewhere in the middle and have quite the loving little family.

It would seem that all the Executioners, Brawlers, Twirled and Trenton crews know how these men feel about each other even before they can admit it. Linc has a few insecurities about being chubby, he doesn’t see how a sexy beast like King could be interested in him. On the other hand ,there is King who is totally head over heels in love with Linc, but feels guilty for carrying a torch for his ex-wife’s brother. They both have things they need to work out in their own heads. As usual it’s intervention from the crews that sets the course for the progression of love. It is Twitch , with the help of Elijah, Ben and Landon that opens up Linc’s eyes and pushes him towards his dream.

King has been doing some heavy introspection and he knows he can no longer wait for Linc to belong to him. Breaking his leg in a work accident gives him the opportunity to be homebound. Linc moves into King’s home and King expresses his feelings letting Linc know he wants to date him. Things progress slowly but steadily and its great to watch them coming together so seemlessly. They schedule their sexy times around play dates facilitated by Pyscho’s twins Rage and Gunner. They are just too cute in the way they protect and adore little Mal.

I really enjoyed watching the familial ties unfold amongst all the different crews. It is always great to see how the beloved partners continue to love each other unconditionally. Linc fits right in with the husbands and it doesn’t take long for him to become one. King proposes and as per tradition the matriarchs Lily and Peaches set up the wedding. Another great addition to the series,can’t wait to delve into the next one. I give this my ratings of 4-lose the underwear.
