Seriously they are dickheads all of them, gritting my teeth it was an agonising read. Like another reviewer mentions there is not one likable character in sight.

Nate does not deserve Ronan. There's a way to tell this kind of story without making the reader hate almost every character, but this is not it. This was wall to wall drama, and not the fun kind that Blackwell usually excels at.

I've pretty well liked everything I have read by Scarlet Blackwell and this book wasn't much different. It had a lot of things I like in books such as possessiveness and jealousy and it was a fairly short read.

So Guy A and Guy B have a "fuck buddy" relationship for two years BUT Guy A swears up and down that's all it is but Guy B thinks it's more. Guy A meets Guy C but Guy C is already going out on dates with Guy D who happens to be friends with Guy A (I'm cracking up with my names by th

The Romance Review

Finding the one person who gets you feels so good. Nate and Roman are friends with benefits for the past few years. Ronan is Nate's Monday night sex date that has lasted through every other man Nate's dated. With someone like this as a steady loving companion, what more could Nate want? Apparently Ronan is nothing but a hole to plug for Nate. Nate is always looking for that "one" to complete him. He thinks he finds it in another man, Shane.

This story is a messed up and painful one to read. The

I would have liked it more if Nate gets more punishment by Ronan.

I did enjoy this book...but usually as the book goes on, you like the MC more and more. The further into the book I got, the less I liked the MC, and by the end, I didn't even want him to have a HEA.

Jerk overload alert! as expected from Ms. Blackwell's characters. But here, woooh... too many too count! At least the ending was as expected.

Oh Scarlet, your characters are so bad, so flawed, and do such stupid, irresponsible things! I probably shouldn't have like this, but I did. Oh, well!

The book was actually pretty good - very emotional and intense, but I don't remember the last time I hated one of the main characters so much. I didn't believe in Nathan's feeligns for Ronan at all. He was just using him and meanwhile he didn't even respect him! Some of his thoughts horrified me.

Ronan is like a constant back-up plan for Nathan, and it doesn't change even in the end.

I had to take away a star due to all the...violence. But at one point, I was breathing all funny. And then, I realized I was crying. It really snuck up on me, this character agony. Brutal read at some points. Pretty great ending, though.

I hated Nate. He was an arrogant, violent man who didn't deserve to be with anybody. But I kind of liked Ronan.

Scarlet writes erotic romance.

Scarlet would rather stick pins in her eyes than go on Facebook but now sees the necessary evil of it. Please join her there for useless writing-related ramblings and hot men musings and ease her in gently. Bah.
