Tricking Chase (Pride MC #1)
As Sergeant At Arms for Devils Pride MC, Tyler “Trick” Malone’s take no prisoners reputation make him one of the most feared and respected members of the club. Unbeknownst to the MC, Trick indulges his most dangerous secret, traveling out of state twice a year to trade his cut for the whip he expertly wields at a gay dungeon.
Trick’s well organized life takes a turn when he saves bar back, and terrified submissive, Chase Ward in a Georgia dungeon. With his protector and dungeon owner dead, Chase is no longer safe in the place he once called home. With the new dungeon owners circling like sharks, he desperately begs for sanctuary in the arms of his savior.
A year later, the MC is still none the wiser that Trick’s houseboy is anything more than a grateful servant. Chase knows, if the club finds out their secret, they will kill Trick—the man he’s come to rely on for everything from the food he eats to the pleasure he feels to the security he craves. Even when gratitude turns to love, Chase never expects reciprocation from his ruthless Master. After all, the only way for them to survive is if Trick remains the heartless bastard the MC knows.
Trick is positive he has it under control and having Chase around has definitely made his life easier. There doesn’t seem to be any harm in letting Chase take a part-time job at Velvet Ropes, especially after meeting privately with the owners. That is until a bomb explodes at the club, leaving Chase fighting for his life and forcing Trick to face his long hidden feelings.
Even if Chase survives, that bomb has done more than rock the foundation of the popular leather club. It’s blown Trick and Chase’s well-guarded secret out of hiding, putting their lifestyle and their lives at risk. Now there is only one thing Trick needs to do before the club gets them and that’s to get revenge on the person who dared to hurt his precious boy.
Authors Note: Tricking Chase is a direct spin-off of The Protector, which is book 3 in my Sizzling Miami series. Though I tried to provide enough details that it isn’t necessary to have read that book, I cannot really call this a standalone.
Warning: Tricking Chase contains an established D/s relationship, hot guys on motorcycles, an undercover DEA agent named Snake, and a few visits from fan favorite Sizzling Miami characters.
“I don’t want to be safe if you’re not safe!”
The rush of words stopped him cold. No, no, no! They’d talked about this a hundred fucking times. Chase knew why he couldn’t feel that way. “Chase…”
“I don’t want to be safe if you’re not safe,” Chase repeated, each word punctuated by a harshly drawn breath.
“If I’m worried about you…”
“No, no!” Chase’s eyes nearly rolled back as the gel’s intensity hit its peak and he struggled to hold position. “If you force me to go, I’ll find a way to come back. You’re my Master. I won’t let them take that away from me.”
Though he’d played in the scene for several years, nothing had prepared him for Chase. For the responsibility of another person who would look to him for every decision and who craved his approval. Chase had taught him a lot about merging the lifestyle with a domestic partnership and, though Chase was emotional, he wasn’t clingy or suffocating about it. Not that it had been a cakewalk and those first few months had been a huge learning curve for them both, but Chase’s eager to please attitude and deference eased the way. In their time together Chase never once defied him, whether in play or in punishment, whether he was issuing an order or refusing a request. That Chase would choose to make his stand in this moment, bound to the bed, suffering through a punishment, made it all the more important.
“You would defy me?” It was almost impossible to believe.
“In this one thing, yes. Even if you said you didn’t want me anymore, I would do everything I could to make sure you were safe.”
The boy knew him too well. Knew that he wasn’t above lying or being hurtful if it served his purpose. The lesson in focus had paid off. Chase was sweating and writhing in pain, but his voice was even and his eyes were clear. “You do realize what will happen if anyone hurt you, don’t you, Chase?”
Instead of being put off, Chase nodded once and gave it back. “Exactly what will happen if anyone hurt you, Ty.”
The use of his given name was just playing dirty. Chase knew he had the freedom, but often stumbled over the two simple letters. Defiance and his given name…down and dirty. Was it any wonder that he adored this boy? He wouldn’t condone Chase’s defiance even if it spoke to the feelings he refused to allow either of them to acknowledge. He wouldn’t punish him for it either because he knew how precious that gift of loyalty was.
Janette gives it 4.5 stars.
Ty aka Trick has been on a mission for the last four years looking for his younger sister but hitting road blocks.. But even on his search he always found a way to find the release he needed by going into the world where he is one with a whip.. And one fateful night changed his world. Trick couldn’t keep him but dang it he wanted him.
Chase didn’t know what to do his life was over the moment his former master passed away, but what he didn’t expect was the man who intrigued him but was told was too dangerous for him would be his savior AND the man to captivate him.
One year later and both Trick and Chase have found themselves in sync with one another. But some how the past and present are starting to collide the answers Trick have been searching for are within reach. And what he never once expected was the horrible betrayal that was within sight.
We see some old friends from the Miami Sizzling series and boy o boy the weaving of both series together played wonderfully.
Friend, family or foe no one messes with his precious boy and hell hath fury like Ty on a rampage. But once the storm settles maybe just maybe there is happiness at the end of the hurt.
I loved how with little to no words the communication and the connection between Chase and Ty was so strong that you didn’t know where one ended and where one began. Kudos to the author for giving strong characters and chemistry that sizzles.
Evette gives it 4.5 stars.
Absolutely brilliant. I don’t know if I can do justice to this story, TC was freaking amazing. Can’t get the smile off my face and the happy out of my heart.
Power dynamic relationships are not usually a favorite trope for me, but after reading the beauty and honesty of The Sizzling Miami series and now this book I see the how and adore this world JG has created all the more.
The alternating chapters worked well. Who knew Ty would be such a softie or that the confidence and strength that Chase develops would help to further a story that is so much more than it would appear? Loved getting all of the characters back together.
About Jessie G
“Wearer of Many Hats” is a title that was given to Jessie by a former employer some twenty years ago. This dubious distinction, along with the job description “everything is her fault”, came after she fixed an electrical problem—during her interview—that the office had been having for years. After that, if anything went wrong, her coworkers immediately declared it her fault so she’d have to fix it. This position of importance inspired the owner to convert a closet into an office, thereby providing her coworkers endless opportunities to refer to her as “the girl in the closet.”
Today she is still the “Wearer of Many Hats” and her family has readily jumped on the “everything is her fault” bandwagon. Most mornings start at 5am, where she stumbles into her home office (which is step or two up from a closet) to tackle her personal email, watch gay porn and satisfy her Trivia Crack addiction. By six, she’s caffeinated and ready to take on the world. Wearing her favorite red power nightgown, she expertly designs websites, provides SEO and social media services, freelances as a bookkeeper, cooks, cleans and writes.
Writing has been the elusive, life-long goal that seemed to be getting further away as the years went by. It took 30+ years to achieve, but she’s decided that timing is everything. The world wasn’t ready for m/m romance back then, and now that it is, the girl in the closet has finally found her writing home.
Jessie is a firm believer in marriage equality, love at first sight, power dynamics and happily ever after. She’s a lover of strong secondary characters and series filled with families, biological or chosen. All are themes you’ll find throughout her books.
