Garrett delivers a powerhouse of an opener in this MMM romance
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Not sure I have adequate enough words to describe how much I loved this book.
It’s 3am and I just finished reading it having picked it up earlier. I simply couldn’t put it down.
I’m off to bed now to try and see if that helps me find words 🤪
Right, a week later I’m back! What can I say about Devil’s Dance other than it is spectacularly good?
It has men who stretch the boundaries of acceptable behaviour – and push them right over – and I was totally here for it.
As a trio, I don’t think there could be a more perfect match than Cameron, Alexei and Saint. Each of them is such a compelling character in their own right, but put them together and they light up the pages like a firework display.
Cameron is a man with a conscience, he’s trying to follow in his dad’s footsteps as President of the Rebel Kings and move the motorcycle club away from dodgy deeds and into legitimate business. But, there’s resistance and there’s agreements made before he was Pres that he’s having to find a way out of.
This means life is lived on a knife edge, there’s danger every time someone steps out of the club and then there’s Alexei. He starts off as a random encounter in a grotty pub but for both he and Cam, it rapidly turns into something else, something more.
Seeing these two together is like pouring oil on water, they ooze and flow around the surface but it’s what’s happening underneath that’s vital, because they mix like the perfect spice blend into something which is hot enough to burn but sweet enough to soothe all the pain.
But, for all they want each other, both know something’s missing and when Alexei first encounters Cam’s Sergeant-at-Arms Saint, he realises that he’s it.
The pacing throughout this book was perfection. It fluctuates between moments of calmness, a peaceful break before all Hell literally ensues.
While most of this book focuses on intimacy between Cam and Alexei, Saint is not the “third wheel” by any stretch. He holds a permanent place in both Cam’s head and heart and soon Alexei is beginning to bond with him over their need to keep Cam alive.
Without spoiling anything, this book is everything I never knew I wanted in an MC romance. It has elements of such softness and kindness, married with such ruthlessness and dedication to both power and protection that it makes you wince.
I loved all the damaged, broken and beautifully conflicted bits of it!
Also this cover, one of Garrett’s absolute best imho!
