Review: A Gorgeous Mess (The Bent Zealots MC #2) by Layla Wolfe

Four wheels move the body. Two wheels move the soul.
ANSON: I was just a mercenary back from fighting the good fight overseas. I was on a quest for my father, my roots, looking for answers. Turk Blackburn, Bent Zealots MC Prez, ordered me on a fresh operation to prove myself, my guts, my valor. Infiltrate the Navajo Rez and find out who is claiming the Zealots’ turf, using kids to cook drugs.

My partner is the famous badge slut, Ormond Tangier, known far and wide for his mad oral skills, his subservience to anyone in uniform. Mercenaries don’t wear badges, but my dominant side soon has me all over that seductive Spanish servant. A man may as well have a few laughs while on a fatal mission. Because these things never end pleasantly.

ORMOND: I was flung into a life-or-death battle against the slimy Iceman, leader of a rival MC. Iceman is running all sorts of questionable ops on Bent Zealots land, and now Anson and I have to prove our street creds just to stake a claim in our own backyard. I’m a friend of cops, firemen, and soldiers alike, but suddenly I only want one man ordering me around. Anson Dineyazzie, macho half-breed hired gun, has stolen more than just my heart. This was never supposed to happen.

ANSON: I swear I’m never falling for that service bottom Ormond. I’m accomplishing this op and going back to Afghanistan. But I have to wrest control of this Rez land from Iceman and the lethal hit man who has been trailing us. I’d bury anyone who got between me and Ormond. Does that mean I’m in love? God, I hope not. Don’t think I can take that again. Just need to get back onto the open road and blow the dust from my soul.

Publisher’s warning: This book is not for the faint of heart. It contains scenes of gay sex, illegal doings, violence, mild BDSM, and forced seduction roleplay. There is no cliffhanger or cheating and there is a HEA.

I was sitting on the fence when I read the first book in the series. That’s always a disappointment when you can’t decide if you liked it or not. However, I decided to give A Gorgeous Mess a try just to see if it was me or the book. And… I find this second book much better than the first.


I think it was Ormond that got me. Badge slut and a special effect make artist? So yeah, he’s a sub and has a thing for men in authority, plus being a biker. But the artist thing I just found completely out there. Anson for me at first seems to be an odd combination of merc and PTSD. Their first meeting was a fairly hardcore ‘wham bam thanks for the BJ, man’ moment. Followed up by a unexpected ‘uh oh’ when it turns out Anson is a friend of Turk’s and he’s there to help them out. Yeah I found that a wincer especially since Ormond is out and proud and Anson, not so much. Both have deep personal issues they need to deal with which made for some intense moments.


Still quite a bit of harsh language here and plenty of characters with the craziest names for bikers I have ever heard. Twinkletoes, Dipstick, Thymus Gland? *Shakes head* The sex while fairly tasty does have a few dubious moments where I was wondering if was forced or was it consensual. As in the first book, expect violence and drugs. Still, readers of MC and gay bikers will enjoy Layla Wolfe’s Bent Zealots.
