But when evidence capable of destroying his future comes to light, Alec sets a plan in motion to keep the man he loves from a district attorney bent on vengeance. Will Alec’s efforts pay off or will he destroy them both in the process? As a Disciples of Havoc member, Keyes Dixon rides the line between society’s moral code and that of his brothers. He straddles two worlds… One owns him and the other seduces him with the promise of a future. But when a rush to judgment has him swerving to miss the roadblocks suddenly in his lane, he’ll have to choose between the club that demands his loyalty and the gorgeous assistant district attorney who deserves his commitment. Can Keyes escape his circumstances to take a chance on a future he wants? Six months into what started as a one-night stand, both men must navigate their developing feelings as they remain bound by differing oaths that threaten to drive them apart. Not only does their future hang in the balance of opposing forces, but an unexpected strike of the gavel could send them on a collision course neither is prepared for. Will havoc continue to determine their lives or is their love strong enough to bring order?

Independent Reviewer for Archaeolibrarian - I Dig Good Books!
Superbly written m/m romance!
In ORDER (Tattoos and Ties Duet Book 2), we continue the story of ADA Alec Pierce and Biker Keyes Dixon, who remain together, knowing their lives would be in danger if their relationship became known to anyone. This is a hot, scintillating story of opposites attracting and finding love in a world where they should never become a couple as their professions are set against each other with hate.
I love these two men and my heart broke with every struggle dealt them. The author delved deep into emotions and reactions from the lovers, their families, the bike club, and others who hate them for their profession or because of hate for the entire LGBTQ community, and wove them all into a beautiful story. I bit my fingernails worried the Disciplines of Havoc would find out about the couple and what would happen to Alec and Keyes when they did. It was my greatest fear in the series. Their love held them through so much – more than I think I could’ve handled.
I don’t normally choose biker or m/m romance first, but I’m glad I agreed to read this duet. Kindle Alexander merged the two worlds into a love story that grips your heart from the beginning and makes you continue to wonder HOW Alec and Keyes could possibly make it work. I won’t give that away, but love – and the determination of those in love – will always find a way. These two men will remain with me for a while. Thank you, Kindle Alexander!
Reviewer note: My review of ORDER by Kindle Alexander, for Archaeolibrarian, is for this book alone. So, even though I read book one – HAVOC – I looked at this book from a new reader’s perspective. While a reader could read ORDER without reading HAVOC, as the author brings us up to speed seamlessly, I recommend reading HAVOC first. There’s so much to Alex and Keyes relationship and challenges that will be missed otherwise and adds depth to the characters and story. Besides, watching them fall in love is writing with perfection in book one.

Amazon international number one best selling and award winning author Kindle Alexander is an innovative writer who writes contemporary male male romance and erotica. It’s always a surprise to see what’s coming next! Happily married with too many children and dogs, living in the suburbs of Dallas.
Usually I try for funny. Humor is an important part of my life – I love to laugh and it seems to be the thing I do in most situations – regardless of the situation, but jokes can be a tricky deal. I don’t want to offend anyone and humor tends to offend. So instead, I’m going to tell you about Kindle.
I tragically lost my sixteen year old daughter to a drunk driver. She had just been at home, it was early in the night and I heard the accident happen. I’ll never forget that moment. The sirens were immediate and something inside me just knew. I left my house, drove straight to the accident on nothing more than instinct. I got to be there when my little girl died – weirdly, I consider that a true gift from above. She didn’t have to be alone.
That time in my life was terrible. It’s everything you imagine times about a billion. I love that kid. I loved being her mother and I loved watching her grow into this incredibly beautiful person, both inside and out. She was such a gift to me. To have her ripped away so suddenly broke me.
Her name was Kindle. Honest to goodness – it was her name and she died a few weeks before Amazon announced their brand new ereader. She had no idea the Kindle was coming out and she would have finally gotten her name on something! Try finding a ruler with the name Kindle on it…Never happened.
Through the course of that crippling event I was lucky enough to know my writing partner. I would have never gotten through those dark days without her unwavering support and guidance. There wasn’t a time she wasn’t there for me. For the first time I used the hand offered. I know without question I wouldn’t be here today without her. It takes a special person to stand beside someone at a time like that. I will love her forever. I could go on and on about both of them, but I won’t and now you know a little more About Us.
