After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic 'Nicky' Costigan--the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.

When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one-night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this sil

Marie In my opinion no, it was perfect. I am not a fan of age differencies in relationship, but here it was natural and their relationship made sense.

4 Stars!!


If you have read and enjoyed 'First Signal', the first installment in the series, then for sure you’ll enjoy 'Fast Connection'. This second installment was as awesome and well written as at first one and once again I fell for the two main characters from the very beginning. While this one can be read as a standalone, I highly recommend reading the first installment since you don’t want to miss another great read by these two authors, another great mix of sweetness and sexiness.

5+ Stars.....So Good!!!!



I loved the first book in this series but I thought this was even better.
I really didn't like Dominic in book one but I did a massive u turn here because I absolutely LOVED him here.

Dominic has just left the Military.He's kind of drifting through life,doesn't really know where he fits in.Add into the mix his highly volatile family,at the age of 27 he's a bit jaded with life.
He's bi sexual but has become more and more interested in men so goes on Gri

Yep, this one ticked all of my boxes!

Right off the bat, I'm laughing my ass off.

I loved all of the electronic communicating. I love texts, e-mails....all of that stuff. Megan and Santino really nail it on this front.

I started reading this one on my lunch break and honestly couldn't quit. I would have finished it in one sitting had work not gotten in the way. As it is, I still finished it in a day.

I LOVED Dominic. LOVED him.

5 stars, loved it to pieces! Here are my feelings, expressed by the great Beyoncé:

Not much else to say that hasn't already been said. Fucking incredible book.




I was blown away by all that SMOKING HOT CHEMISTRY!!! The sex is out of this world. And Dominic and Luke fit perfectly together!

I don't know if I can describe in words how much I LOVE this book!!! But I will try.

I never expected a book's release as much as I expected this one. I counted the days! I pre-ordered it a long time ago. I knew I will love every s

How I love this story... Second time around with this one and I loved it just as much as the first time around.

This one is my favorite out of the three. The guys had the best connection for me and it just felt more real for me. I think it was because of the strong sense of family the book has.

Dominic was so damn endearing. He needed to be wanted. He needed to be taken serious. He needed to feel a connection to someone that could understand him. He needed someone to love him. He needed, Luke.

You want a review? Some advice about this book? Here you go....

READ THE BOOK!!! DO IT!! Do not walk...run. Do not stop at Go and collect $200. Do not dilly-dally. Make good life choices. Put a smile on your face, a zip in your step, a stutter in your chest and a tingle in your body.

I hope the Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell collaboration NEVER ends! If things get rough, go to couple's counseling, but DON'T YOU DARE BREAK UP!

Let me break down my love.

Every bit as good as I expected a book from these two to be.

My only critique is that I feel I could tell which chapters were written by Megan and which were written by Santino. *shrugs*

Writing this book with Santino was a blast. I laughed to the point of tears numerous times. "I don't do yoga."

This series has my heart, and I'm thrilled readers are connecting with it (see what I did there?). Yes, there will be more books in this series, because writing with Santino is that much fun, and apparently readers like us doing our writing thing together.

Anyway, Fast Connection is out now on Amazon, B&N, Kobo, iBooks and All Romance ebooks. Get it if you're into a grumpy silver fox meet

As usual, my ipad review disappeared, so here's take 2:


So this book popped up on my Kindle app a little after 12 am, which means I was FORCED to read it until after 3 am. Forced!

Really though, I stayed up until that time reading it because I was enthralled. I found it to be amusing, honest and generally realistic. I could totally see there being two asshole-ish guys very much like Dominic and Luke that meet through an app like Grindr and end up falling in love.

I'm leaving my original rating and review under a spoiler tag to evidentiate I did read it and the majority of this space is dedicated to the book.

This book was amazing, I loved every freaking page !!

We've met Dominic in book 1, in which he was a bit of an ass. He's a bit cocky, that's for sure, but an asshole....no way !! I loved the guy. Dominic has discovered his bi side in the army and he's al for exploring it more fully now that he's out. This brings him to Grindr.

This is the second book I’ve read now in the Cyberlove series and although I enjoyed the first in this series, Fast Connection blew that book out of this universe. This had everything I needed in the first book, it had more substance and the issues that the authors weaved into the story were executed in a

Sorry for my incoherency, but man this book is totally awesome! Its a damn total package and I've enjoyed it far more than I thought I would!

Santino & Meg put up the ante of their game here. And for me, its better than the first book by miles.

I wasn't into the MCs of this book right away. Not really.

Dominic was hilarious. I loved the text messages that he sent to Luke. He had such a fun personality.

Luke(silver fox) was not as fun as Dominic. He was a little more reserved and serious. He didn't know how to deal with Dominic's laid back attitude but he sure wanted more of him.

I loved Dominic's struggle and how it played out, how he made the transition from soldier to civilian and all the disruption that caused and especially because it didn't revolve around PTSD. The change from regimented time and duties to the amorphous construct of everyday life and how unmoored he felt were really well done. Tacking on his sexual identity growth made it more and less challenging because while he wasn't the guy who left town ten years ago and had to rebrand himself to his family a ...more
Funny that this is actually book 2 in a series. I’m saying funny, because book 1 was clearly a 5 star book for me, but this one literally blew me away. It’s made it to my top 10 favorite reads in 2016!


Literally every single aspect of the story of Dominic ‘Nicky’ Costigan and Luke Rawlings touched me and made me drop EVERYTHING else in my life to read this in one go (luckily I’m on leave this week, LOL).

That was fantastic, I loved Dominic! It's amazing how Santino Hassell can bring a character from a previous work and show all these different facets to their personalities and make me love them. It happened for me with David and with Caleb from the Five Boroughs series so why not with Costigan? And Luke, holy hell what a hook-up, Grindr really worked out for them, yeah?

Excellent story - my favorite in the series so far :) and yes I stayed up all night to read it.

Special shout out and huge thanks

We met handsome, hunk Dominic Costigan in the first story,

as a fellow Army member serving with Garrett. Now back in the states, he has reached out to Garrett, but he's busy with Kai, (we met them in #1) and has moved away. Dominic goes on Grindr to hook up, and accountant/landscaper, silver fox, Luke finds him

and they hook up at Luke's. It turns out to be momentous for each man. It is first time anal sex for Dominic, a

Texting! I absolutely loved all the texting!!*happy sigh*

I will admit that when I first heard book 2 was going to be about Dominic I wasn't too thrilled.

Dude was a straight out ass in book 1. So I was surprised to see when peeps reviews started popping up how much they liked him. Were we talking about the same guy here? For a while I thought that maybe I had gotten my characters mixed up...again :/ (and Paul, if you end up reading this review.. hush, you!) Bu

Let me clarify because I mean that in the best way possible.

Luke is the grumpiest grump who ever grumped. Thank gawd Dominic is made of rubber. Everything bounced off him with relative ease, because Luke definitely throws some great resistance at first.

Apathy is Luke's armor. He's got a painful past and no way is he getting involved with anyone ever again. Nope. Not going to happen. Until that is, one persistent guy changes everything.

Dominic just wants to explore his new desires.

Great addition to this awesome series. This is another favourite read of the year for me. Hot and gritty, with the perfect amount of angst and sweetness to balance it. I adored the main characters, especially Dominic/Nicky. The combination of his cocky exterior and vulnerable squishy centre made me swoon. And Luke was the perfect foil for him. I loved all the family drama too, it was well balanced and enriched the story without detracting from the relationship arc.

Hoping for more in this series
