Blurb: Sometimes being a good Samaritan doesn’t pay off…
Ethan stops the apparent assault of a young man from the streets and becomes embroiled in a confusing drama that he knows better than to involve Max in, not after the fiasco with Gordy. But keeping secrets from your lover is an even worse idea, as Ethan soon discovers. His act of kindness soon drags him and Max into the dangerous underbelly of Las Vegas, where the pursuit of easy money takes precedence over everything else.
Review: There really isn’t much more I can say about this series at this point. It continues to be a fabulous and refreshing journey about Max and Ethan and how they tackle each client/situation, all while they manage their somewhat double lives at The Elite Poole with their personal lives.
Ethan and Max continue to hide their relationship for the sake of the Company, and while this may seem like a bad thing, they are both on board with the choice, even if it is proving more difficult as time passes. Worry over working together making the chances greater of someone noticing their feelings for each other, coupled with the worry over something happening to one of them on the job, definitely causes some tension here and there. These guys are so committed to each other though, and The Elite Poole is a major part of their sole purpose, aside from keeping themselves happy together. The Company has become more important to Ethan at this point, and they share in wanting to see it succeed.
This time around, Ethan gets into some trouble trying to do a good deed. Things aren’t what they seem though, and there are some twists and mystery surrounding it all that make things quite interesting.
As I have said previously, what I love about these guys is that their relationship, while having some BDSM elements, is more about power exchange and doing what works for them, as opposed to the norms of the scene. It continues to keep things extra steamy and adds a layer of freshness every time they take things further. And, while they are smoking in the smex department, their connection, feelings and emotions are clear throughout the story. I’m sad that I’ve reached the end of this series and cannot wait for the next one to arrive. I highly recommend it.
Overall Impression: It was amazing
