Tight Everly, Sergeant-at-Arms of The Black Vipers M.C.
In the world of The Black Vipers, sin runs free and I'm sin personified.
Given permission by the cut I wear, I take whatever the emptiness inside me desires, by any means necessary.
Unfortunately, the truth sin doesn’t want you to know–nothing is ever free. It takes payment in flesh and degradation.
A highly venomous predator, it slithers around inside of you, wreaking havoc and claiming your soul as its own.
Sasha was the savior to my sinful ways…only she didn’t want the job.
When sin rules your life, there are no boundaries. You take without regret.
She would be my salvation, even if I had to play the Devil to get her.
Being near Tight was like standing on the edge of a raging fire.
The heat dangerously intoxicating, offering protection from the darkness while promising the burn of betrayal if I got too close.
Yet here I stand, staring endlessly into the dancing flames, not noticing the building smoke or the ache of his all-consuming heat.
Unfortunately, I know how this story ends. Burned beyond recognition and discarded, I’m turned to ash without a second thought.
Completely destroyed by him.
There had to be a way to avoid the damage he’d inflict. The problem was, I wasn’t sure I wanted to.
Because with Tight, this kind of burn feels amazing.

“A bomb has exploded in my brain … what the hell did I just read; wait not read, devour in one sitting. Ben “Tight” Everly, Sergeant at Arms, that’s what … and the Black Vipers M.C. Good gawd. This is one where you don’t want to read “this is a work of fiction.” Hell no please make Tight Everly real. I don’t know who Robin Harper is either but the cover; yeah I need to give the lady a fist bump.”~ 💖 💖 💖 💖 💖 Ramblings from Beneath the Sheets

If they’d known about ADHD when I was little, my Ritalin dosage would've been OFF THE CHARTS!!It goes without saying; I spent A LOT of time by myself after the teacher moved my desk out into the hallway. ** Silver lining** With all that alone time on my hands, I used my imagination to make the world a more interesting place. When I was little, people said I had an "active imagination". In elementary school, teachers called me a "daydreamer". My high school counselor said I needed to “learn how to focus" and my college professors warned me to "buckle down". Before I knew it, it was time to “grow up”.So that's what I did. I grew up, got married and had five kids. I work as a full time nurse, I'm active in my church, part of the most amazing book-club, blog about books with my best friends and cart small humans to school, football, theater, dance ect. Oh yeah...and write a bit when I can and now people call me "talented". Moral of my life story: Hug your kids, embrace their differences. Love them for who they are. Someday, the traits you think are struggles now… Might be exactly what they needed to turn their dreams into reality!Micki lives in small town Iowa with her husband, kids and a fat Cocker Spaniel named Joey. She is the author of Winds of Darkness and Chasing Jenna.

Waw!! that's all I can say. And that ending, hmmm... it had me in shambles. Ms. Fredricks starts us off with a riveting and gut wrenchingly dark start to Reckless. Chapter one definitely epitomizes the name of the novel as well as setting the pace for a gripping storyline.
Living on the streets for numerous years. Hungry, malnourished, beaten and raped. Ben has nothing to lose when he steps into the Vipers presence. Looking for a way off the streets, he bargains for a chance to join the lethal MC.
I'd lived my life in the shadows until now but here I was, totally exposed and in the middle of a nightmare.
Saved from the streets at sixteen, Tight (Ben) Everly became the Sergeant-at-Arms of The Black Viper MC. Years later, Tight has made a name for himself. Along with being the most deadly member of the MC, he's seeking revenge on an enemy MC, that brutally took the life of the Club's Queen. The Prez's Old Lady. A woman that mothered him, when he was taken in, and showered him with love.
Tight has been having nightmares from his past, that weighs heavily upon his shoulders. Sweet memories of a young girl, Sasha, that gave herself over to the lost boy. A boy that wanted to give her everything, but couldn't even fathom tarnishing her beautiful soul. He had nothing to offer her, living on the streets, scrounging around for food. Leaving her behind was the hardest decision he has ever made. But he knew it would be for the best. She was his salvation.
As Tight puts these memories to bay, he gets himself shot. In recovery at the hospital, he meets a young woman by the name of Julie, a woman whose touch electrifies him. Something about Julie reminds him of his Sasha. As he pursues her, in efforts to force Julie to admit she is Sasha, his enemies come looking for him. One way or the other they will take him out.
Both Tight and Sasha's demons will haunt them, secrets will be revealed, and identities of dead men will transcend the grave to choak the life out of the living. Sasha's owns fears and her past will bring the wrath of some deadly enemies upon the MC.
"Sin is never free.. It takes payment, one way or another."
This was a thrilling read by Micki Fredricks. I read this in one sitting and couldn't seem to get enough. The feelings of despair still hangs tightly to my heart, as I traverse in my mind the next instalment. Wonderfully developed, with flamboyant and fierce secondary characters. Something about Braxton is getting me excited. Maybe a book for him *wink*
