Sorry, I just can't put myself through this. Several of Sasha's ribs are, at the very least, cracked, and he can't even lightly touch them without pain, yet Neal pins Sasha's wrists above his head? Fucking ow. Yet it's apparently a-okay. So then I hop on Goodreads to read he synopsis again, and I see "ex-marine" and roll my eyes because, seriously, do your fucking research.
Then I read some reviews and this just sounds like a poorly written, chaotically plotted fuck fest with no legitimate reading value. So thanks, but no, thanks....more
A big fat DNF at 31%. I just can't keep going. This is too terrible. All you people who gave it two and three stars; the hell, yo? The hell.

I'm still laughing. It's so bad it's making me giggle even though I'm no longer reading it. Check my updates for some wonderful lines, but I've got more. Enjoy.
"Nearby, a small silver bell."
Yup, that's sentence. Or it's trying to be.
"Going through the double doors, it was like stepping foot in Ireland."
"Bo had swiftly picked up on James' attraction to David and he warned him there was a tiny possibility his ego would be hurt soon. Or, worse than his ego."
"He wanted to hold him in his arms, to comfort him,and it was so much unlike him to want that, it frightened him."
"He wanted to give him a purpose, to make him focus..."
He's known the guy less than a day!
"The light of the late afternoon etched mounts and vales on David's body."
"He wanted to make David his friend, his lover and a lot more, his wishful thinking to go slow long forgotten..."
"He was afraid of being rejected but he would never know if he didn't try."
Less than a day. He's known the guy less than a day, and he walks into David's apartment, unannounced and uninvited, while David is asleep. He then proceeds to ogle David's nude body as David sleeps in what he thinks is the privacy of his new home. Then he starts fondling David, while David is still asleep.
Fear of rejection? Try fear of the authorities, you weirdo.
So then things heated up, right? And I mean that in a very literal sense.
"When at last they touched, fireworks exploded between them. The shock made James whimper. The sweetness and warmth of David's mouth spread like wildfire through him...
...their mouths melting into each other.A wave of heat rushed down James' veins...
He wasn't able to think anymore, he could only feel wave after wave of heat."
So then Bo walked in on them making out, and this is how I see it going in my head:
But seriously, Bo walks in (yes, another man just blithely walks into David's apartment), and things got even weirder...
"Bo, leaning against the door jamb, chuckled softly. 'Ya didn't waste time, rite, buddy? I kinda expected ya to leave him to settle down! Yeah, rite...I'll give ya both thirty seconds to get over it. I'll wait downstairs.' He snickered before he left them to it."
Can we talk about Bo for a minute? What the fuck is that accent supposed to be? I've heard Cajun, and that is no kind of Cajun I've ever encountered. Is spelling 'right' r-i-t-e supposed to denote some kind of inflection on the word? Because it doesn't. 'Right' sounds pretty much the same when spoken with a Cajun accent, and 'rite' is a completely different word with a whole other meaning. So. There's that. Oh, and also this:
"'It's not some kinda romantic idea of ownin' a nice bar like de Central Perk in Friends, okay?'"
I'm sorry, what? First, what exactly was "romantic" about Central Perk? Secondly, the Central Perk wasn't a fucking bar. And thirdly, none of the characters owned the place. Not even a little bit. So what the fuck?
