Series: Hawks MC: Caroline Springs Charter #5
Author: Lila Rose
Genre: M/M MC Romance
Release: August 8, 2017
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?
Hear Me Out is Beast and Knife’s story, and it’s one that truly illustrates what the MC brotherhood is all about, not just because the guys have one another’s backs regardless of the situation, but it’s also because those who live and breathe the bonds established by being a part of the club accept who each member without judgment or criticism. There’s a true sense of family amongst the brothers in the Hawks MC, and Lila Rose depicts that idea extremely well as they work together to help Beast and Knife through the many life altering events that occur in their lives throughout the story.
Maddox “Beast” Lawson found the love of his life when he was 15 years old, and he’s lived for two decades knowing that this man would never see Beast the way he wanted to be seen. As a gay man in a motorcycle club, he has kept his sexuality as well as his dalliances to himself, but one night in a hotel room with the man who means everything to him not only changes the dynamics of their friendship, but it also opens up Beast’s life to gossip and judgment, making him feel like he no longer belongs with the Hawks and this idea is only reinforced more when Beast faces a life without the ability to hear, which only serves to alienate him further from the men he desperately needs to have his back.
Jay “Knife” Conger’s life drastically changed after he shared a night of sexual release with his best friend…with a man who means everything to him but one who could never replace Knife’s love of pussy. Nothing has been the same for Knife after that encounter with Beast, not only due to the fact that he’s avoided Beast since that night but because it also brought conflicted feelings to the surface, forcing Knife to figure out why thoughts of Beast have become way more than friendly.
At the heart of Hear Me Out is a story about two guys figuring out exactly what they mean to one another and accepting that those feelings are worth taking a chance on despite the fear of backlash and judgment. Lila Rose does a great job of illustrating Knife’s confusion and then his realization and ultimately his acceptance of his attraction and desire for Beast.
Beast and Knife’s story also provides its own definition of what a family means and how, sometimes, blood is more a determent than anything else. Knife opens himself up to an array of possibilities, more than just his feelings for Beast, and as he realizes exactly what he has with Beast, with his brothers, and with the most precious gift he’s ever received, his life becomes everything he never knew he wanted, and with Beast by his side, Knife knows that no one and nothing will ever get in the way of what and who make him happy.
