After years of running wild, Linc might’ve finally run out of road.After a brutal capture at the hands of the Heathens Motorcycle Club, Linc is just trying to heal, mentally and physically. But he’s got men in his life who are complicating everything. There’s Mercy—a Havoc MC biker and the man he is falling fast for—plus an undercover ATF agent and a rogue Havoc member.
But Mercy’s keeping him at arm’s length, and Linc is spinning. In an attempt to regain his equilibrium, he heads to the bar where he first met Mercy. Night after night, he escapes Havoc bonds and continues down his merry path of mayhem . . . mainly in the hopes that Mercy will give chase.
Since Linc’s capture by his old MC, Mercy’s been dealing with the fallout of his guilt. He’s trying to give Linc space and still watch over him—all without Linc’s knowledge. But with Linc’s old job calling and a threat to Havoc MC heating up, can they make their way back together?
Running on Empty recounts some of the events of Running Blind from Linc’s and Mercy’s point of view. And talking about Mercy, it took me a while to get used to the name change from Gypsy. It’s not a spoiler, just an author’s note before the start of the book.
Like before, the connection of all the motorcycle clubs, law enforcement agencies, and old friends is one of the most interesting aspects of this story. It runs parallel to the romance but it didn’t take away from it.
Linc and Mercy are complex characters with many hidden layers that kept them from trusting each other during most of the story. They do have a sweet connection that withstood their separation and all the others trying to flirt their way in.
I wanted a little bit more cuddly time with them as a couple. Also, more about the other guys and their possible love interests. Overall, this was a nice addition to the series.
I enjoyed having Mark Larchmont narrating once again. It’s easy to jump back into the series when the voices bring you back into the Havoc world.
The cover by L.C. Chase is simple but it matches the story and the series.
