Publisher's Summary

When life gives you blood, make mayhem.

Grim. Assassin. Leather-clad sex god. Has the most unusual taste in men.
Misha. Mutilated. Afraid. Will never trust again. 

Grim is a bloodthirsty killer, and he owns it. Gay in a world of outlaw bikers, he firmly stands his ground if anyone dares to cross him. He takes pleasure in showing homophobes their place and fucking his way through a life of carnage. 

But there is a part of him always aching for something he cannot get. When by chance he saves the most perfect guy he’s ever met, he is not about to let him go. Even if it means he needs to smother his broken bird. 

When a masked, bloodstained man rescues Misha from captivity, he doesn’t know if he should thank the menacing stranger or stab him and run. Grim is not the kind of man who takes no for an answer, and Misha might now be in more danger than when he was trapped as a sex slave. 

Misha cannot deny though that Grim is as alluring as he is frightening, and once Misha realizes what power his body holds over Grim, he understands that taming the beast of a man could be within his reach. 

But any possibility of a future together is like a house of cards when Zero, the sadistic crime lord who destroyed Misha’s life, sets out to get him back. 

Will the ruthless biker assassin at Misha’s side be enough to conquer the monsters from his past? 

This stand-alone novel is approximately 110,000 words.

Beautifully sick !

5 Blue Roses
4 Blue Flames

I am absolutely a fan of KA Merikan. These characters are so beautifully sick, I am starting to question my own blurred morals. Imagine Dexter with a amputee fetish.
The audiobook cover is fitting for the series. The audio sample sounds good and does represent the narrator's performance perfectly. It was helpful to make a decision to buy the audiobook. I am familiar with the authors, they are on my favourite list.

This book starts with an unplanned rescue. This book is book 8 in the series and although I suspect the attack on the bunker ran from the previous book, I was totally able to listen to this audiobook as a standalone. I was sucked into the story and connected immediately with the main characters.

Grim is a bloodthirsty assassin who thinks he might be a psychopath. He has an amputee fetish and unintentionally saves one of his most watched and admired amputee porn stars.
Misha has been abducted and held as prisoner and forced to perform online pornography.
Grim is gay and an outlaw biker. He feels a unique connection to broken helpless people. He is a homophobes' worst nightmare.

When he rescues Misha from captivity, he doesn’t grasp the nightmare Misha was living as a trapped sex slave. The authors played this plot very well, as this caused me to ponder the situation time and time again. Misha fights Grims advances, which is understandable. Grim is calm in nature and soon Misha understand he is save with Grim no matter what. Misha is a strong character and he never gives up on his right to survive. Together they take on the crime lord responsible for Misha's hellish torture. This book has it all.

Narrator: Wyatt's talent is growing. He performs the emotions and strong language very well. His voice is perfect for badass biker dudes. His breathing and cadence is great. It very easy for me to listen to him and finish the audiobook in one sitting,

I recommend this book if you like the dark, violent and bloody scenes. The language is crude and fitting for the characters. I enjoyed it that way!
Happy Listening

5 stars!

This story is fcked up, kinky, scary, disgusting and hot! And I loved it!
Definitely not for faint-hearted. Grimm's fetish is truly weird, but somehow the writer made it kind of understandable and something Grimm can't change.
This was my first time with this narrator. And definitely not the last! I loved his voice! Perfect narration for this book.

Wow!!! Mischa and Grim

Talk about dark. This book was disturbingly so. But I loved every minute of it, even if some of it was cringe worthy. We first met Grim in book 3 or 4 I think. I thought he was such a butt in that book. Luca and Lucky had been excited to meet him and he'd tried to take advantage of Luca. I was not prepared to like Grim in this book. We thought Tooth was hardcore but Grim made Tooth seem more like the tooth fairy. I do love that throughout this series, they show how, even though the guys are gay, it doesn't stop them from being hardcore. In Luca's story, a rival club thought that since the Coffin & Nail's MC had a gay Vice Prez, they could take them down. Uhm. No.

In this book, Grim ended up being a lovable psychopath. I mean, Yes. His favorite color was blood. Mischa ended up being just as dark. He was also sharp and had a dark sense of humor that Grim seems to like. He was handicapped which was one of Grim's obsessions. Was Grim's love and devotion for Mischa because he was an amputee or did he actually love the man that Mischa was? You will need to read the book to find out.

It was a great listen and Wyatt did a good job. I thought I remember him having Grim's voice a little deeper when we first met Grim but this was okay, too. Mischa's accent was adorable.

So worth a credit if you can handle this kind of dark and violent m/m romance.

Raw. Gritty. Intense.

In His Favorite Color is Blood, K.A. Merikan explores a kink that isn't frequently talk or/and written about as it's considered a fetish and taboo. The way it was done was both interesting and loving .

Grim and Misha are two fierce yet vulnerable and lonely heroes. Their coupling makes them stronger. Their love makes them whole.

Wyatt Baker delivered a fantastic performance.

Loved everything about it!!

This is one of my favorite books by these authors and no one could have given it life better than Wyatt Baker (he's for sure one of my fave narrators). The story is so dark but full of love at the same time, a love that will make you probably uncomfortable at the beginning, but after you start to know Grim and Misha more deeply, you can't help but understand that the two are destined to be together, just perfect for each others. But they will need to fight for their love, they will need to face their past and find the courage to survive the horrors that life has reserved for them.

Dark Winner!

This book is another dark winner for the Sex & Mayhem Series! This time, Grim, who we meet in previous books, gets his story. Grim is a dark man, an assassin, And he is not afraid of who he is. Misha, a sex slave that has more than just emotional scars, gets rescued by Grim. Misha is absolutely everything Grim wants, but is he willing to trust again?
This book is one that is unapologicly dark! But with that darkness, there is still a story of redemption, hope and love. The characters are written in a way that they are not afraid to be who they are, even if that is a hardened assassin or a scarred amputee.
The narration is absolutely perfect in bringing these characters to life. Misha's especially gives the character a uniqueness that brings out the emotions behind his words. This book is not one to miss, especially if you have enjoyed the series before - this series keeps getting better!

His Favorite Color is Blood

My Favorite Color is Blood was the one Book in this series I was most nervous to read. I remember Grim being mentioned in previous books of the series and I was a bit hesitant knowing this was his book and wondering what we would get with him.

I ended up skipping past reading the book and went right into listening to the audio version and I am so glad I did. This audiobook was really great. I think that Wyatt Baker captured not only Grim’s gruffness, but he was also able to portray Misha’s voice, personality and accent perfectly. This audio was definitely enjoyable and I really liked the entire book as well pretty much from the start and right through to the end.

Misha had such a big personality for having gone through so much in his short life. When starting this book I literally had no clue how much he actually went through to become who he was, it was eye opening. He had so much life and snark in him even after everything. The darkness he feels inside hasn’t taken over and surpassed the light in him. He is also pretty brilliant and funny too and I really didn’t expect to love him as much as I did. I think a good part of my feelings for Misha had to do with the narration we got though and how the narrator presented him to us too. Without that added extra I’m not sure my feelings for him would be as strong. But man, he was such an interesting character.

Grims’ fetish was not really my thing going into this book, so I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from him. Even an hour into the book I was still wondering where this story would take us. But what I thought to be a little odd in terms of how the two started out together and how their relationship evolved was made into something so much more. Once the two of them formed their bond and learned it was ok to trust each other, these two guys were Smoking Hot together. I felt like Grim was literally made for Misha. He was made to find him and save him and take care of him the way he deserved even when his motives and inner thoughts and turmoil were a little unconventional. Grim is the definitely the most lovable Psychopath I’ve encountered so far. Lol. This book was fascinating and I would definitely recommend that if you liked any of the other books in this series you should really read and/or listen to this one too.

Narrator Note: I’ve listened to other (older, the first few) narrations from Wyatt Baker and I really feel I need to add in a note about how much he has improved as a narrator overall from the first book he narrated in this M/M genre till now with this book. You can tell the difference and if he keeps improving the way he has, he will definitely move up as one of my favorites.

Wonderfully Dark & Twisted

Misha and Grim have a wonderfully dark and twisted story that although littered with violence, it is also laced with love and romance. Misha, held captive by a psycopath, is rescued from captivity by Grim, who is also a psycopath but one who goes after those who harm others. It's quite twisted the way these two can justify the violent acts they commit in such a way that I was agreeing with them. It's incredible to see the tough, violent, killer, Grim, being sweet, loving and protective of Misha. It's very twisted but oh so right! The narrator did a fantastic job with this one, especially with Grim's voice, it's super sexy, low and growly which fits him perfectly. I voluntarily reviewed a gifted copy of this audiobook.
