“He’ll steal your heart and then your car.”
Peter Bauer is a career car thief with more skeletons in his closet than four-figure suits. Nikos Petrakis is a mechanic who's found himself on the wrong side of the law because of a secret of his own. Brought together by circumstance and a '65 Shelby Cobra, they'll have to navigate L.A.'s seedy underbelly in the sweet with heat world of Hot Wire.
Night Moves has been nominated for the Goodreads M/M Romance Members’ Choice Awards Best of 2018 for both Best Debut Book and Best Main Character. It contains themes of crime, suspense, family drama, hurt/comfort, dark humor, addiction, and abuse. Rated M for mature.
This story is definitely a little different than what I usually read in the MM genre. There is more grit, criminal activity, lies, betrayal, budding romance, and one hot ride.
Peter and his twin sister Olivia were raised by their abusive criminal father Erik. Although, Olivia always seemed to get the best parts of their father whereas Peter took all the abuse that has carried through to adulthood. Now they both work for their father but nothing Peter does seems to be right in his eyes. To Peter all he is is a screw up, dumb, worthless and a times a liability.
Nikos is a mechanic who works for Erik but who really never had that much interaction with the family until Peter messes up with a car jack. Peter's attraction is immediate to this gorgeous mechanic but he is hesitant to jump any conclusions. Lucky for Peter, Nikos isn't and whatever is happening between them takes a backseat. However, Peter isn't the only one that has some deep dark secrets.
