About the Story
Available free and exclusive to newsletter subscribers.
He should never have gone running that afternoon—not with the roads so treacherous, and certainly not without checking his phone was charged. Then again, if there’s one thing seventeen-year-old Jason Connor is famous for, besides being the star of his cross country team, it’s his impulsiveness. So, when an injured ankle leaves him stranded in the woods with no means of calling for aid, it isn’t the first time a rash decision has led him into trouble.
As dusk approaches, Jason believes his situation can’t get any worse…until rescue arrives in the form of Tarek Bahrani—beautiful, infuriating, and the very last person Jason would choose to find him sprawled in the mud. The two have been enemies since clashing at the Brookshire County Championships, but while Taz is a constant reminder of Jason’s biggest mistake, he might just be the only one who can help him put things right.

My head snaps up and I strain my ears to listen. Footsteps. Not the hurried, uneven footsteps of someone fleeing a pursuer, but the measured pace of a serious jogger. My heart high-jumps into my throat, then drops in an ungainly tumble to my stomach. God, not him. Please let it be anyone else but him.
Even as the prayer forms in my mind, I know it’s hopeless. I grind my teeth, frustrated at my own impotence, and watch for the figure to come into view. There’s only one person around here dedicated enough to be out running with the clouds about to burst, and it also happens to be the last person in the world I’d choose to find me on my backside in the mud.
Catching sight of me, he slows to a halt a few paces away. He brushes the dark curls off his sweaty forehead and raises an eyebrow. “Jason Connor. Fancy meeting you here.”
I glare up at him, summoning all the venom I can muster whilst in a crumpled heap on the ground. Christ, of all the residents of Oakmere who might have stumbled across me, why did it have to be him? Tarek Bloody Bahrani. Beautiful, infuriating Taz. My nemesis. The one boy who has seen me at my worst.

Title: BAD LIKE ME
Series: Royal Bastards MC
Authors: Chelle C. Craze & Eli Abbott
Available here: mybook.to/BadLikeMe
The majority of people thought all bikers, especially one-percenters like us, handled things the same.
Those people would be irrevocably wrong. Our now rival MC, The Dogs of Chaos, was proof. Their
club’s greed outweighed the amount of honor they had for our deal. We were quick to remind them what
a colossal mistake they made. I was the Vice President of the Cleveland, Ohio Chapter of the Royal
Bastards MC. My cut was sacred, and I wore our colors with pride.
I thought of my past daily, but that didn’t mean I still loved her. The remnants of guilt I felt in my gut
every day didn’t prove that I should have followed her. They were reminders of my life, a part of the
history of how I became who I am: a stubborn SOB with a foul mouth and a heap of felonies. Stealing
guns, arson, breaking and entering, these were all petty things to me. My only weakness was admitting
my true feelings for her, and I refused to…until I was forced.
When Ray abruptly walked into my life again, or rather, I barged into hers, I quickly vowed this time
would be different. The thing was, a person couldn’t make promises without considering the rest of their
life, particularly someone with as many enemies as I had. I stupidly got caught up in the moment and
forgot who I was and what that meant for her. I never meant for any of it to happen; I didn’t want this for
The Dogs would retaliate for our transgressions; this much I was certain of. Having knowledge didn’t
make a difference in the end, because what they took from me could never be replaced. I was Logan
“Crow” Williams, and just like a crow, I would hunt them down and reap my revenge in blood.

Tanglewood high society came out in full force to be seen as a serious contender at the auction benefiting migrant children. Tinkling laughter shimmers in the air. Men and women mingle. It emphasizes how still the two of us stand, how serious.
“Are you sure you want to sell it?” Damon asks, thought the chess piece has already been appraised and announced. It’s already pictured in high-gloss photography in the auction program.
The Den is part social club, part underground hub for illicit activity. Countless paintings and priceless sports memorabilia have been sold between these walls. There was even a noteworthy auction involving the virginity of a woman. The bloodied history of this chess piece fits right in.
Damon frowns. “It’s a family heirloom. If you need money—”
Christ. Damon Scott is one of the few men I consider a friend. I can’t bear the thought of him offering me a loan. Or worse—a gift. I don’t need the goddamn money, but it’s easier if he thinks I do. “With the old man gone, there’s no family left. So there’s no reason to keep it.”
A whistle. “That’s cold, even coming from you.”
I have something of a reputation. In an emergency room, being calm and controlled is an asset. In the regular world people look at me like I’m a monster. Well, maybe I am. The old man thought so. He never understood that a blue flame burns the hottest. “Is it wrong to care about the money?”
“Everyone cares about the money, Anders. That’s the one human constant. Anyone who says otherwise is either lying or drinking their own goddamn Kool-Aid.”
He walks away, leaving me to study the dark swaths alone. Maybe the painting is about money, then. I’d rather be on call tonight, or at least buried in a stack of books, but I have to see this through. All the way to the bitter end.
