“It suddenly feels like it’s five thousand degrees in here.”
"You said when we get home tonight. Whose home did you mean?"
I caught his eyes with mine and then said with the utmost sincerity,
"Anywhere you are."
If falling in love was the single scariest act a person could make, then I was ready to take that leap.
Ace Locke, he is a Hollywood superstar, if you read Brooke Blaine's L.A. Liaisons Series then I am told you meet Ace there. I have not read that series but I have heard good things about it, not reading the series didn't cause any issues for me with understanding this book. Ace is getting ready to start a new film when this book starts. He has no idea the man on a billboard ad for Calvin Klein boxers with abs to die for and the perfect f*ck me hair, the man he has been drooling over and dreaming about is also going to be in this film.
Dylan Prescott is out in L.A. From Sunset a Cove Florida working on a modeling campaign when his agent gets him a part in a film. When Dylan finds out that this film is the latest by his wet dream of a favorite actor, Ace Locke, he is flying high. Until he meets him, then his perception of his idol is slightly altered. Even though he thinks Ace is a bit of a dick at first he can't deny that, dick or not he still wants him. Yeah, he probably wants him more because of his cocky attitude and body that won't stop - but can he deal with the life of Hollywood and all that goes with it? One of my favorite quotes from Ace to Dylan that showcases his cockiness - “Be careful about making promises, Dylan. I just might take you up on them.” - Dylan takes as a challenge and accepts it wholeheartedly!
The chemistry in this book - it is scorchin' hot! Dylan and Ace seriously will blow your mind. Dirty Talk? Check. Teasing? Check. Foreplay? Check. Sex in unique places? Double Check! These two are not afraid to pleasure each other, they get down and dirty and offer no apologies for their raw, almost animalistic at times, sex life. *Sigh* If only all of us had a relationship like them!
"God, I wanted him. On top of me, inside me, his body covering every inch of mine."..."I’d never wanted anyone the way I wanted Dylan in that moment. It was as though every single part of me was drawn to him. And I was done denying that.".."I knew in the seconds that followed that everything in my life was about to change."
I really enjoyed this story. I loved seeing some cameo appearances from Ella Frank's characters that we all know and love - and I have to give props to these two authors they really went all out in this story. Trust me, you don't want to miss it! I think once you get to know these two guys, you will fall in love with their personalities and their passion. So grab a copy of this 5+ Star book and hang on as these two go zero to 100 in more than one way!

I was on complete and utter Locke-down.
“Nothing, Daydream. But you better get your sweet ass in the car before I forget my good intentions.”
I walked outside and headed toward the stairs. “Eh, who needs those?”
As Ace pulled the door shut behind himself, he followed, and I heard him call out, “That’s exactly what I was hoping you’d say.”
Ace got to his feet and slipped his hands into the pockets of his jeans as he looked around the group. Then he let loose a smile so wide and cocky you couldn’t help but be in awe of his confidence. The guy had it in spades.
I laced my fingers with his and squeezed. “And whatever it is you need from me, you can have that too.”
Ace seemed to be a man of contradictions, and, if I had to guess, one at war with himself. It had been so long since I’d been around anyone who wasn’t completely open with who they were that I wasn’t sure what the next step was, or even if there should be a next step. But as I stared at the attractive man in front of me, I knew I wasn’t willing to give up on the promise of something, even if it meant hiding in the shadows and waiting for him to seek me out. Because my gut told me that whatever this was between us wasn’t over yet.
“Where do you think you’re going?” I asked.
“Fucking leaving, so move.”
Shaking my head, I said, “No, see, that’s not the way it works. Get pissed at me all you want, but fight it out here and get it off your chest. Don’t go fuming when I’m not around to defend myself.”
Shaking my head, I said, “I asked you first. You want me, Ace?”
Ace bit down on the inside of his bottom lip, and the shy response to my question almost took my breath away. The Ace sitting in front of me was so different from the huge personality on the big screen, or the self-assured one he radiated when others were around. For some reason, the thought hit me that this was the real Ace, the one who seemed almost nervous as he sat mere inches away from me, contemplating how to answer my question.
