A great sequel to the first book, An Uncommon Whore. Stories like this are not my usual fare but I love Helios and Griffin so much I had this book on insta-buy--and I was not disappointed. This time around it's told from Griffin's POV. He's got some issues...which he admits. Working through them is a big part of the story. Fine with me, I like character driven plots. The story also has lots of hot, hot, hot descriptions of Helios (I swear he is one of the sexiest men in the entire universe) and an equal number of sizzling hot descriptions of their intimate times. If I have only one complaint it's the fact we didn't get something that was alluded to in the opening pages :-( but that leaves the series open for book number 3. A few other dangling threads also lead me to believe a third book is in the works, something that makes me very happy.
