Blurb: It’s Friday night and Tad finds himself doing pretty much what he’d expected. Celebrating with his friends at a night club in honor of their buddy Breck’s birthday. The music’s pumping, drinks are flowing, as laughter and dancing bodies abound.
Nothing too outlandish, nothing unusual.
Until Scott and his own crew show up at the place. Funny how the one person Tad prefers above all others is the last person he wants to see. But now that he’s spotted the guy across the room, he can’t seem to take his eyes off him. Which winds up being a very bad thing. Seems Scott out in public with other attractive men is a much different story than Tad’s used to.
As one disturbing event after another unfolds, Tad splits before he loses his mind. But the breather he needs he does not get. In fact, things just go from bad to worse, the night ending on a note he never would have imagined. As things between Scott and him hit rock bottom, the only direction left must be up. If only Tad’s life would follow such a formula. But the path he’s been walking lately has never been that simple.
With a world of revelations finally revealed, can Tad find it in himself to make peace with Scott’s past so they can finally head into the future?
Review: Well, Ms. Knight has done it once again. Another installment of this hot addicting series that delivers as big a punch as the previous 4 books. If you haven’t checked out this series yet, you are seriously missing out.
At this point, Scott and Tad are still seeing each other, but Tad’s reluctance to come out really puts a damper on things. Much of this is about Tad realizing Scott is the man for him, though it takes some major doing by Scott for that to happen. Completely understandable that Scott doesn’t want to hide at this point in his life, just as it is frustrating to watch Tad continue to struggle. Tad accepts and wants Scott in his life, but he is afraid of coming out to his friends and family, so he continues to put it off. That is, until Scott forces hand.
Scott, just as he has been in all the previous books, is such a strong character. He knows what he wants, does what he can to get it, and is willing to walk if it doesn’t look like that will happen. He remains true to himself in not letting himself go back on the things he wants. When he is with Tad, he is amazing as ever. Strong and dominant, yet caring and sexy. He pushes Tad but for mutual enjoyment. I completely love everything about him.
Tad is a bit more wishy washy, though understandably so. He’s a young guy, which you can tell from his inexperience and language, though Scott is trying to help with both of those.
I swear I could read about these two all day and not get tired. The sex scenes are smoking hot and never feel repetitive in any way. The stories are well written and easy to read. You will easily zoom through these and regret not taking more time when you find yourself at the end. We got to see a bit more into the backgrounds of Scott and Max which really helped to understand where they were coming from and the dynamics of their relationship/friendship. I’m excited there will be another installment of Scott and Tad, though I am really looking to dive into Max’s story.
Overall Impression: It was amazing
