Underneath His Armor (Outlaw MC2) by James Cox


Blurb:
What if bad guys ruled the world and the good guys were the outlaws? As President of the Outlaw MC of Mars, Knox needs to keep his head clear and always stay on alert. That’s easier said than done. In the middle of this war with the government, another MC wants to start making some big moves. Knox knows they need to watch their back but he always wants to protect his club brothers. The laws are too chaotic not to bend and try to break. Women are for breeding. Dark skinned men are slaves. Homosexuals are executed. He had a problem with all of them. Especially the last part, because Knox was in love with his Vice President.

Knox and Liam grew up watching each other’s back. That didn’t change when they were both sent to prison or when they turned helplessness into a thriving motorcycle club. But Knox is determined to keep Liam at a distance to keep the MC objective safe. Then Liam is injured and Knox is faced with a terrible truth. What if Liam dies before Knox can say just how much he loves the sexy VP?

Explosions, hover bikes, corruption and hot sex. Mars is supposed to be humanities savoir but will it keep two men from finding happiness in each other arms?

Dani's rating:




This story is, unsurprisingly, SMEXY as FUCK.

James Cox writes really good sex, and the MCs in Underneath His Armor aren't just alpha males; they are badass, tattooed, motherfucking OUTLAWS who ride hover bikes and fight the government.

Underneath His Armor is a gritty dystopian action flick cum romance set on Mars, where humans live following the destruction of Earth, which is now used as a prison colony.

Life on Mars is bleak. Women are used as breeding machines; people of color are enslaved; and homosexuality is punishable by death. Sound familiar?

If not, check out the latest in U.S. politics, because sadly it's really not all that far-fetched.

Knox (Outlaw) and Liam (Lover) have been best friends forever, but Knox wants to focus on the war against the government and thus resists Liam. This doesn't make a whole lot of sense, but Knox is stubborn.



This novella is fun and sexy and rough in all the right places, but I would have liked more world building and an overall LONGER story. I craved more build-up, more action, and more scenes with the MCs together.

I did not read the first installment in this series, but this story reads fine as a standalone.

Bonus points for a deliciously steamy voyeuristic group sex scene (the MCs looked but didn't touch) that had me drooling. It was a nice addition to the notched-up sexual tension between Knox and Liam.
