I was given a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

So there’s romance. There’s erotic romance and then there is erotica. For me, there were moments that this book pushed past erotica into smutty porn territory. Which isn’t a bad thing - it just wasn’t what I was expecting. And I probably wouldn’t have chosen to read it on a crowded train if I’d realised. But I love a little smut and once I’d read the rather foreboding disclaimer at the start, I had to finish the story.

There is a little bit of story mixed into the smut. Joel is Tyler’s sorta boss and he’s all conflicted and closeted at the start. Many pages of gratuitous and inventive sex later and Joel has worked through many of his issues.

So. This is definitely sexy and steamy. I think the sex is better written than the attempts at storyline and character development. I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone looking for careful characterisation or complex plot structures but I can promise that it will get readers more than a little bit hot and bothered.
