It's not so much the actual sex (although it is hot!). I'm talking about the to die for alpha, Law. This character could be the lead in any romantic genre (straight, gay, bi) and be absolutely irresistible. This is not a bdsm book or menage, it is simply a super hot love story where a man knows what he wants and will do anything to get it. In this case it is Tom, his cousin's ex lover whom he has pined for since the beginning.
At first Law comes off as a complete jerk (still a sexy one though!) when he pulls into the garage where Tom works in a classic Lamborghini. Tom whom hates Law whom he believes looked down on him during his relationship with Wells (Law's Cousin). All their past interactions have been humiliating and full of conflict in Tom's opinion and he wants absolutely nothing to do with him.
The chemistry begins from the very begging when Tom's coworker's make it impossible for him to turn down a ride in Law's super hot car. From that moment it is also the reader who is taken for a super hot ride. Law convinces Tom to attend Well's wedding as a way to gain revenge on his ex lover's mother who treated Tom as someone not fit to scrape from the bottom of her shoe. In this case however things are not always as they seem....
Okay, enough about Law (sigh). Tom is a great character as well. Written from his perspective we get a view of his conflicted emotions and confusion regarding Law. Tom is convinced Law is straight and can't help wondering about Law's intentions. Law is a super rich alpha who is a control freak, the exact opposite of Tom.
*This picture has been changed to reflect the slighter frame of Tom compared to Law. However this is still Chris Hemsworth, but at an earlier stage in his career. IMO he is still quite yummy though!
In my opinion the first love scene works perfectly and shows the domination of Law without making Tom into a submissive weakling. It skirts around going to far, but it quickly becomes clear that the lovin' is consensual. I can't write more about it except to say Yum.
I really like the balance regarding Law's and Tom's personalities. We find out that the Alpha has a heart (a sexy irresistible heart) and Tom while the Omega, is still sexy, strong and more than capable of handling the headstrong, dominant Law.
This is a book I will read more than once. I love Law and Tom together. Yes it is a Cinderella (Cinderfella) story with an edge. (less)
