In an post apocalyptic world, Dae owns a diner in an almost abandoned city. No law reigns unless the regulators' law, biker gang who patrolling the zone.

Dae must protect his younger sister and so he takes on him all the brutality of the gangs member, in particular of the leader. So now Dae is alive but his body is scarred, like his soul. He no more has hope.

But one day a new regulater arrives in the city: Coby is younger but he is also a born leader. But when he is with Dae, he has a gentle touch. He promises not to hurt Dae. He says he will return to Dae every night, and every night he returns. So maybe Dae can find some hope inside him.

This is a wonderful story, of a love who blossoms among the pain. Cody is so tender and caring, Dae, even if he is older, is like a baby who reborns with the gentle touch of Cody. It is also an over romantic story, and of passion, even if you will not find the mere act of sex: the passion is all in the magic touch of Cody, and a kiss will be the ultimate gift.

This book wasn't really the type of story I usually read, quite the opposite, I try to avoid these. But since it was by J.M. Snyder and she does intense and emotional drama very well, I couldn't help myself and read it.

Dae is deeply scarred in more ways then one. He's used to being abused and raped by pretty much every "regulator" (bikers who rules the city and claim everything they can) that comes to his restaurant. But one in particular takes pleasure in torturing him both mentally and physically. The reason that he accepts such abuse is to protect his sister, the only family he has left.

One day a new young regulator comes in and Dae assumes it's going to be the same old again. But this one is different. He doesn't demand and take anything from him and Dae quickly finds himself craving his presence, falling in love isn't too far behind either. Desperate to cling to something he never had before, Dae tries to make his sister see that he isn't like all the others. But she simply refuses to see it.

What will happen when the person who takes pleasure in making his life a living hell realizes that some new young guy is poaching on his territory?

Overall, the sister got annoying very very fast and I was doubting the intelligence of the main character as to how he handled situations that put his sister in danger by his own hands.

Nonetheless, it was sweet and touching. ( )

Book description
Biker gangs known as regulators rule the streets of a war-torn city with hate and pain -- their cruelty is etched into every inch of Dae's battered body. He has never known anything but hurt from the hands of men ... until he meets Coby.

When the new regulator rides into town and takes an interest in him, Dae is unwilling to believe that anyone who is a regulator can be a gentle, caring lover.

Is Coby strong enough to protect Dae and his sister Delia when there's hell to pay in the form of McBane?
