Blurb: An auction for the city’s most eligible bachelors…what could go wrong?
It’s Las Vegas, and the only thing hotter than the city are the agents of the Elite Poole Personal Security Service, owned by sin city’s most magnificent Dom, Maxmillian Poole. While a charity auction places Max in the unenviable position of having to go on a date with a stranger, his lover Ethan takes on an assignment guarding the star of a popular television show and his young son. For Ethan, the job is a breeze and fulfills his interest in children, but Max struggles with the ardent attentions of a man who doesn’t understand the word ‘no’. Max and Ethan’s love life is hotter than ever and emotionally, they’re growing closer, but all of that is threatened when an unexpected danger strikes them when they least expect it.
Review: Ethan and Max are tested in more ways than one in this installment. For starters, Ethan’s latest assignment is protecting a TV star/children’s author and his young son while they are in Vegas doing book signings. Seems pretty cut and dry, but being around a young child has made Ethan think of the possibility of having that with Max. With the subject of marriage already having been on their table and not going extremely well, this just adds to that tension.
Ethan and Max struggle a bit with their limitations (i.e. their relationship being so strictly closeted with no visible chance of that changing, the marriage/kid issue and whether that is something that will ultimately come between them, or whether they will be enough for each other). I love how they are having to deal with these issues and insecurities and loved seeing how it all panned out.
There is also the introduction of another man, who wins a date with Max at the auction. It seems they are dealing with an infatuated stalker situation, but there are some twists and connections involving this that really turn things around.
This continues to be a very interesting, fast-paced story that is wholly keeping my interest. I can’t wait to see how these guys ultimately end up and am thoroughly enjoying the ride to get there. On to the next chapter, er, book!
Overall Impression: I loved it
