's review

really liked it

A fast and dirty ride full of emotion, friendship and lots of steamy sex.

Eli is still healing from the shattering of losing his long time lover. He doesn’t believe that he can allow himself to feel for another that way again, never risk that kind of damage. Unfortunately, for his plans of staying cold and indifferent, a gorgeous young man who won’t listen to his protests comes to work in his bar and slowly drives him insane with lust and before he knows it, with love.

Asa is so sexy, stubborn and resilient. He refuses to accept that Eli is as cold and hard as he would like everyone to believe. He sees past the harsh words to the desire and need for him that Eli cannot hide. I loved how he took charge when he needed to and how he pushed Eli towards healing and acceptance.

The heat just kept building between these two. With lots of arguing and eventually an inability to keep their hands off of each other these two finally find the happiness that they both deserve, in each others arms and sometimes even in a bed. I enjoyed spending time with these sweet and sexy men and watching them fall in love.
