Blog Tour Review: Hear Me Out by Lila Rose

Hear Me Out
Hawks MC: Caroline Springs Charter #5
by Lila Rose
Genre: M/M MC Romance
Release: August 8, 2017

Fear keeps the truth away from his brothers. Fear and pain keeps him away from the man he loves.

Hawks MC member Maddox “Beast” Lawson had a difficult time growing up. Tired of being ridiculed because of his effed-up brain-to-mouth connection, it was easier to say nothing at all. Living in silence worked out just fine until that b*tch called Fate took his hearing, not only that, but she also threw him into the arms of the man who refuses to acknowledge that one hot night they shared.

Jay Conger, Knife to his brothers, loves pussy. Licking, fingering, screwing, he’ll take it any way it’s offered. After one surprising night with Beast, to say he’s freaked out is an understatement. Hell, even bananas have taken on a new meaning, and thinking about a certain someone’s body is too much. Unable to think straight, Knife is at an impasse, not only with his traitorous desire but with his heart.

Both lives are going to change. Only will it be for the better?

I've never read any book from this series before and I picked this one purely because it is m/m with a deaf hero. Though I feel the story didn't put much emphasize on 'Beast' being deaf. His deafness is kind of a non-issue because before long every brothers seems to learn sign language and Beast can read lips. Go figure.

Anyway, the highlight of the book for me is Knife. I never thought I would love him that much but he is so hard to resist. His POV is the fun factor in this book and I crave reading his inner thought that never failed to make me laugh. 

Beast had been crushing hard on Knife for the longest time, but he dare not come out as gay and freak everyone out. Knife is a total manwhore. After an incident on a hotel bed together, Knife freaked out and avoided Beast for months, weeks? Knife is a total asshole for ignoring his best friend, but it was too much fun to see him obsessing over Beast despite being in denial of his feelings. The worry and jealousy is just priceless. 

There isn't much emphasize on the MC business beside the unresolved stripper getting beaten up issue. But we did get to witness Knife being a total hardcore when it comes to dolling out punishment. I'm bloodthirsty like that. 

As a MC series, the plot and story arc is weak, but romance wise, I'm in love. I realize I can read about Knife and Beast for another book or two because this book is simply too short to satisfy my thirst for them both. When Knife finally decided to take the plunge to explore things with Beast, he was all in and it was delicious to see his alpha caveman style stacking claim on his man. I want more!
