Kat is a happy new mother, but a very unhappy wife. Resigned to her life with a cruel husband, Kat sets out to make the most of the weekend she must spend with the Red Devils, a violent motorcycle gang that her husband joined just a few months earlier.

While Kat expects to submit to the rules of the club, which includes being shared among the many men who ride in it, she never expects to garner the sole attention of the gang’s sexy leader: a mysterious man with a taste for mothers’ milk.

Secure under Ben’s thirst and protection, Kat experiences kindness, affection, and sexual fulfillment like she’s never known. She soon discovers that she is not the repulsive whore her jealous husband would have her believe, but a decent woman worthy of love and respect.

However, even Ben’s powerful position can’t stop the vicious betrayal that is coming their way — a desperate and dangerous act that might ultimately tear Ben and Kat apart.

Excerpt

If you are one that has trouble with non-monogamous relationships, DO NOT read.  The blurb and excerpt tell you to expect that.  There is also a brief scene with M/M action.

The writing in the story is pretty good but the characters are a bit of an issue.  I felt like I was thrown into the story which isn’t bad if the author can make you get to know and empathize with the characters.  I didn’t really feel like this was done.  The felt a lot more concentrated on the sex scenes than anything else.

I think the author has potential but missed the mark with this one.  Yes, this contains fetish material and is more of an erotic bend but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to have the characters mean something to me.  I felt disconnected from the characters so even the sex scene hit a dull note for me, which felt like what the story was mainly based on.

Herman Edward Heckley knows all about drywall, concrete, and nail guns. So what’s he doing fighting off taffeta in a bridal salon? He’s maid of honor for his best friend, Caroline Oakenfeld, in her wedding to a pencil-necked geek. But the closer he gets to the ceremony, the more he wonders if he’s been missing out all this time.

Caroline has been missing out, and she knows it. She’s been in love with Heck forever, but frittering her life away until Heck wises up isn’t part of her life plan. She’s agreed to marry her boyfriend so she can move on with her life. But the closer she gets to the ceremony, the more she realizes she has to resolve her feelings for Heck.

For better or for worse.

Herman “Heck” Heckley and Caroline Oakenfeld have been best friends for 34 years, which explains how he finds himself swamped in taffeta in a bridal shop and planning a bachelorette party as Maid of Honor in Caroline’s wedding to a pencil-necked geek.  So why isn’t Caroline happier and what are these odd feelings he’s having for his best friend?  Caroline after loving Heck for years and finally giving up on having him return her feelings, finds a nice man to marry and move on with her life.

____________

This was not your typical friends to lovers story.  There were times I wanted to reach out and slap both Heck and Caro on their heads for being so dense.  Both of them are scared to admit to their feelings for the other.  Add in a conniving, delightfully evil bridesmaid and you have a hilarious read.  Heck is a man’s man and is so out of his element dealing with various wedding chores.  His confusion over his changing feelings for Caro is believable. Caro’s fear of losing Heck’s friendship kept her from declaring her love and leads her to accept Dan’s proposal.  The highlight of this book is a riotous bachelorette party which will leave you laughing, just don’t eat the icing.
