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.

Dark but oh so good…
This story opens in a world of violence and ends in the same way. What you have in between are all the why, how, what, and who which make the read so worth it….
Tight Everly lives in a world of violence. As a high-ranking member of the Black Vipers MC he sees it, he participates and he starts it. The family he opted into were not your average mom and dad, white picket fence, two point five kids sort of folk. They loved but with every heartbeat they knew that could end at any moment. Their lifestyle was not one where you worried about dying old… Tight never knew a life of peace but he knew a brief moment of love and that moment’s name was Sasha Campbell. Brought back together in a quirk of fate, or design, that gave them both a chance to reconcile their past. Betrayal sat between them and they had to get past that first…
This was a short, explosive, heart in your throat type of read that had me anxious from the very first page. There is no sugar-coating of the truth and Tight’s world is portrayed in a way that leaves you no illusions. The ties between Tight and Sasha are emotional and winding through their issues is not easy for them. And not me either as the author throws you into their situation with words that make you feel what they feel.
Explosive from the first page to the last, with twists that turn the knife, these star-crossed lovers story will stay with me….
“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.
