Balls and Chains is the sixth book in the Outlaw MC series by James Cox. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel with ease.
The MC’s of Mars are fighting against the corrupt government and the archaic rules. Whip is a kinky club member who is good with technology. He is hiding out at Harley’s Hover Car parts to monitor the government. While there he gets to know Harley and falls for the man. Can they make a relationship work while fighting against the government?
The beginning of the story leaves you wondering how the story will turn out. At the end of the first chapter, I was hooked. The author did a great job of creating a world and drawing the reader into the world he created. The world that was created was very realistic. The pace of the story was very fast paced. The main characters and the secondary characters were realistic and believable. Whip and Harley each had their own issues that they had to deal with making both of them realistic and believable.
The point of view alternated between Whip and Harley, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines. The main conflict of the story is the budding relationship between Whip and Harley while they fight against the corrupt government. The level of conflict was perfect and more storylines and it would have detracted from the overall storyline. The dialogue between the characters was sincere and candid. The characters voice matched not only the setting but fit their overall personality. The ending was a bit predictable but the reader is taken of a wonderful journey. I can’t wait to read the next story in the series.
What if bad guys ruled the world and the good guys were the outlaws?
The war has begun. The MCs of Mars are fighting against the corrupt government and their archaic rules: women are used for breeding, dark-skinned men are slaves, and homosexuals are executed. Whip is the kinky club member who is the best with current technology. He has the task of hiding out at Harley’s Hover Car Parts to monitor the government. He never planned on finding out the sexy ginger Harley had a crush on him. But Whip isn’t like most men. He grew up with a harsh father that taught him early how to torture people. Whip turned that horror around and now he can’t live a vanilla life. He has whips and cages and toys that would make any sane man run.
The city on Mars becomes a battle for the future of our species. But the battle between Harley and Whip is just beginning. Will these two men find love with balls and chains?
