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 tosmother 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?

Shocking but fantastic book! His Favorite Color is Blood begins with a glimpse at Grim’s life as a child, then launches into the story with Grim’s rescue of Mischa, a young amputee who’s been held captive and used as a sex slave. Grim is a biker and an assassin. Mischa doesn’t trust him at first, but their relationship improves as Grim helps Misha face his demons. However, by doing so, Mischa is put into danger once again.
This was the first book I’ve ready by K.A. Merikan, and I wasn’t at all disappointed. I was a bit wierded out in the beginning by Grim’s amputee fetish, but as the plot took over, the fetish aspect took a back seat. As for the sex between the two, this was just amazing. I didn’t find too much sexy about the fetish thing, but most of the erotic scenes had very little to do with it. I think what I loved the most was the dynamics between the two, considering Grim’s anatomy was so large that he was afraid to use it. So when he finally does, it is extremely hot. In addition to the sex, there’s some pretty violent and over the top scenes; one being as a graphic, close quarters assassination. Overall, the book was amazing. I would never imagine an assassin coupled with a wheelchair-bound hotty would make such an erotic and formidable team in an action packed adventure. I recommend this book to anyone who loves dark themed m/m, bikers themes, and m/m romance.
