Blurb: On the surface Ben seems to have it all: money, influence, good looks. He smiles and jokes in all the right places, but it’s all a façade. Inside he’s a wreck, and it’s only getting worse. With his congressman father using Ben’s recent kidnapping for his own political agenda and Ben still struggling to get over the only guy he’s ever loved, he feels like he’s losing his grip on reality, and he’s quickly spiraling out of control.
Then he meets Dante, an enigma of a man with as much self-hatred as Ben has. In Dante Ben finds what he didn’t know he needed: Dante’s control, his power, is the only thing that clears the fog in Ben’s brain. For the first time in his life, Ben has a lover who just might need Ben as much as Ben needs him. When they’re together the demons from their pasts don’t lurk so heavily on their shoulders.
But Dante can’t fix him. Not when a memory from Ben’s past is haunting him in ways he doesn’t understand, waiting for him to put together the missing pieces in his head…and what he discovers just might have the power to break him for good.
Review – Book: Jen reviewed the book previously here.
Wow, what a complete and total angst-fest. Ben and Dante are both severely broken men and I was beginning to think they were the complete opposite of what the other needed. They may have wanted each other sexually, but I didn’t think they were right for each other, and it took nearly the whole book for me to understand that they were actually perfect for one another.
I was very happy, beyond happy actually, to see Tristan finally come to Ben’s aid. Tristan was a complete douche to Ben in the first two books, but when Ben needed him most, he was there…with reinforcements in the shape of Mateo and Josiah.
Review – Audio: Jack Dupont does an amazing job of bringing these men to life. His performance is almost palpable, and at times I had to turn the audio off because it was just so sad. But, it was only temporarily because I knew that in the end it would all be worth it…and it was. I may not have loved Ben and Dante as much as I did the first two books, but their story needed to be told, and I needed to hear it. Highly recommend this book and this series.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
