Blurb:Welcome to Twirled World Ink where the crazies run the asylum.
Gene Sheridan earned the appropriate nickname when Legend Gib Phelps employed him at Twirled World Ink—Scary. No one made it out of his old neighborhood without scars both mental and physical. At one time, Scary thought he had a chance that is until his ex-boyfriend discovered slumming with someone like him wasn’t worth his trust fund. No-strings hookups became his go-to when he needed to relieve some tension. Co-owning a bar called Brawlers with his best friend, Tank, made it easy to find a body to use for the night. If not happy he was content with his life, but one man made content seem like such a terrible thing.
Elijah Vaughn worried about everything. His life was put on hold at eighteen when his mostly-absent parents died on one of their many adventures leaving him to raise his six-year-old brother, Brody. He’d never had anything or anyone that was just his. When Brody met a tattoo artist named Trouble, Elijah hadn’t realized how much it would change his life too. He met a huge man named Scary and how the man made him feel terrified him.
Tank Davis lost his voice the night he was attacked and had this throat slit ear-to-ear. It kept him in a world of silence. Silent and intimidating, he scared off more men than he drew to him. His best friend Scary and him made a life for themselves in small town Georgia with their bar Brawlers. Most night everyone could find him working security at the door. Scary called in a favor, and Tank met the one man he couldn’t resist, proper and upstanding Elijah Vaughn.
Can one man accept that there’s not one perfect man for him, but two damaged souls who need him to be whole?
Author’s Note: Although this is part of a series each book is stand alone and every book deals with a separate couple.
My Review: Gene ‘Scary’ Sheridan is the big bad wolf out of all the Twirled Crew. He is mean as hell and he doesn’t care who knows it. From the very first moment he met Brody’s brother Elijah, he’s been unsettled. He has come across prissy clean cut men like Elijah before and nothing good has ever come from it. Elijah has been very attracted to Scary from the first moment, but he knows Scary hates him. At first he wasn’t sure about all these tattooed bikers in Brody’s life, but he now realize how genuine and loyal they are. Elijah feels comfortable being around them, because what you see is what you get. He yearns for the type of relationship that his brother has with Trouble. Elijah is not sure what he wants from Scary, he just wished it didn’t hurt so much to be ignored by him.
Princess has bragged about all of her ‘uncles’ to Elijah, especially Scary and his silent best friend Tank. After a horrible event that left Tank scarred, he has been unable to speak ever since. Most of the crew talks to Tank in ASL. When Tank lays eyes on Elijah for the first time,he is definitely smitten by the pretty little man. Elijah allows Tank to feel something he hasn’t felt in forever. Tank finds his protective instincts coming out with Elijah. He wants him.
When Brody notices the weird dynamic between the three men at one of Scary’s famous sleepover, he corners his brother. Brody’s reality check puts a damper on Elijah’s feelings and it hurts to feel like he doesn’t belong. Elijah goes to find the bathroom and accidentally walk in on Scary pleasuring himself. He is about to back out of the room, when he is cornered by Tank at his back. Tank becomes the mastermind and gently nudges them in the right direction. Sparks fly between these three and the passion that unfolds is inevitable. Before they can even get anything started, Elijah gets scared and run away. He is scandalized at his feelings for both Scary and Tank.
Tank and Scary are a little hesitant to pursue Elijah due to his respectable job as the mayor. However, their feelings quickly overshadow respectability and they decide to go after their ‘boy’. They approach Elijah with the concept of a threesome and he is stupefied , but he can’t deny his attraction for the two of them. They decide to start dating. It doesn’t take long for Elijah to be indoctrinated to the hardcore sex of these two tattooed bikers. They know Elijah is a delicate flower on the outside, but Scary’s aim is definitely to muss up all that perfectness and turn him into a dirty ‘boy’.
They get a nice groove going, but insecurities pop up for Tank and he feels like a fifth wheel. Scary is there to soothe his best friend but he knows it has to come from Elijah. Elijah does his best to reassure Tank even though he is away on a business trip. Scary seeing that its not enough , plans for them to meet up at Elijah’s hotel. The flames are combustible when they meet up. Scary is undeniably dominant and aggressive , whereas Tank leads with quiet dominance that is almost gentle. Elijah feels like he might have found his fit with these two brash men. When they finally get to talking they realise that they all are a little insecure. They don’t feel like they are enough individually, but they are learning that together they will measure up equally.
Their lives become further embroiled when Elijah decides to start the adoption paperwork to foster a 12 year old girl who he catches breaking in his car. There is just something about Sophie that tugs at his heartstrings. Scary has dubbed her Juvie and the name is very fitting since she is a charming misunderstood juvenile delinquent. These three men can’t imagine their lives without Juvie.
Tank’s past comes back to haunt them when his ex boyfriend Ian, who disfigured him rolls into town. Ian starts messing with them and takes an interest into Elijah. The men toss Ian out of Brawlers when he decides to revisit his twisted attraction to Tank by kissing him. This brings up a host of feelings in Scary, the main ones being jealousy and his possessive tendencies. When Juvie calls to say Elijah didn’t pick her up from school , they know something is wrong. Elijah is missing for 2 days before they get a clue. It’s one of Ian’s men Psycho , who gives them a lead. They are not sure if they can trust Psycho, but they don’t have a choice.Psycho, Tank, Scary and the rest of the Brawlers get Elijah back in one piece, just a bit bruised. It doesn’t end well for Ian and he certainly will not be missed. Psycho becomes Elijah’s personal bodyguard and is yet another addition to the Brawlers crazies.
Tank withdraws from his men, taking all of the blame on himself for Elijah getting hurt. Elijah and Scary ambushes Tank at his cabin, but its definitely Scary running the show. He is very dominant and shows Tank who is the boss. Tank needs this aggression from Scary. Scary possessed Tank’s body while Elijah watched. This is the first time for the trio to come together sexually. It was intense, brutal and oh so primal. These two rough and tumble bikers finally got the man to soothe their demons and a family with Juvie that they never hoped to have. Scary makes it official by proposing a commitment ceremony. The love amongst these three men is a beautiful thing. I give this my ratings of 5- bring out the vibrators.
