Andrew Atler has learned the hard way, fiction is far better than real life. In his romance novels the world is safe, predictable, and there is always a happy ending. Best of all, he can safely fall in love and the person will never know. There he can weave a tale of perfect passion plus pay the bills.
Matt Grim flies the colors of Hell’s Legion. When he’s not riding his chopper, he’s working as a bouncer for the Six. Matt’s life consists of drinking, playing in a band, and burning the midnight oil in the dungeon. He lives hard, plays hard, and rides even harder.
Two people who would never be a part of the same EPIC love story.
But sometimes those fairy tale clichés have a way of working magic.
And sometimes…sometimes those happy endings do come true.
I love Adrienne Wilder stories. I just friggin do. This author doesn’t do much fluff and that’s what I really love about her writing. Her stories are always so unique, real, painful, and unbelievably emotional. They’re never too heavy; however, she balances it all so well. She creates these characters that are usually deeply hurt and love so incredibly hard. As a reader and a lover of her books I fall in love with her characters almost immediately. EPIC is no exception. This was a good book, amazing story telling, with fantastic characters.
Andrew Atler’s self esteem is basically non-existent. After years of emotional abuse from his ex a lot of the internal scars are still clearly visible. Andrew believes no one would ever want to be with someone like him so he immerses himself in his story telling, living through the characters and books he writes.
On a strange bet, Matt Grimm comes barreling into Andrew’s quiet life and makes him want things he thinks he could never have. It’s surreal for Andrew because Matt is essentially one of his characters come to life and Andrew struggles greatly with his lack of self esteem.
Andrew and Matt come together and it’s more than either of them could have thought possible. They just fit in and out of the bedroom. Their wants and needs align which makes them explosive in bed.
Outside forces, a psycho ex, biker gang ties, and other machinations test the unstable bonds Andrew and Matt have formed. Both men know they want to other but both have a hard time believing they deserve happiness.
This story is amazing in the fact that with every chapter both characters grew stronger on their own and as a couple. I loved seeing the transition and the empowerment of knowing ones worth.
Really great story.
