Fear keeps the truth away from his brothers. Fear and pain keeps him away from the man he loves.
Hawks MC member Maddox “Beast” Lawson had a difficult time growing up. Tired of being ridiculed because of his effed-up brain-to-mouth connection, it was easier to say nothing at all. Living in silence worked out just fine until that b*tch called Fate took his hearing, not only that, but she also threw him into the arms of the man who refuses to acknowledge that one hot night they shared.
Jay Conger, Knife to his brothers, loves pussy. Licking, fingering, screwing, he’ll take it any way it’s offered. After one surprising night with Beast, to say he’s freaked out is an understatement. Hell, even bananas have taken on a new meaning, and thinking about a certain someone’s body is too much. Unable to think straight, Knife is at an impasse, not only with his traitorous desire but with his heart.
Both lives are going to change. Only will it be for the better?
I should start off by saying that Lila Rose is a new to me author. When I came across the blurb and this cover I immediately became interested. I realize I’m pretty late to the party since I’m jumping into this series 5 books in but I’m really happy that I dove in, late or not.
The writing was flawless, easy to follow and the storyline was engaging. I really enjoyed the journey Lila took me on. My only real complaint is that I wish I had started this series from the beginning. There are so many characters that come into play and they all have interesting qualities that I really want to explore more and get to know better. So I’m definitely going to be going back and read the previous books.
Hear Me Out is Knife and Beast’s story. Being that these men are part of a MC we get to see that aspect of their lives. The way they live their lives, their attitudes, how they conduct business and the overall brotherhood that goes on within the story is what I love when it comes to biker books. Even though this isn’t heavy on the MC world we get bits and pieces. Lila throws in a few twists within this story that really grounded these characters where they came across as real and very likeable.
Beast and Knife’s lives are turned up on their heads. Dealing with the fallout of a night that changed everything between them isn’t the only thing that these men have to face. When every aspect of how you lived your life is suddenly altered these two guys are forced to really figure out how they move forward. Not only do they have to learn how to deal with these new situations they find themselves in but also how to move forward with their feelings.
I really loved how Lila didn’t make things easy for these guys. Nothing was easy, their friendship was tested and their relationship took time. Jealousy, confusion, desire and need are some pretty powerful factors that ultimately lead to what is one explosive coupling. If I wasn’t smiling because of how cute these guys were I was laughing at some of their antics. Once they got on the same page and realized what they both really wanted the pages just sizzled.
Even though this book can be read as a standalone I really wish I had started from the beginning. So even though I’d recommend this book, I’d really encourage new readers to this series to start from the beginning.
