It was supposed to be just sex... Famous last words.
Tyler doesn't overthink pleasure and avoids complications. He knows it might be stupid to get involved with his closeted boss, but the temptation is too great. At first, the cold and beautiful Joel Sandstrom seems to loathe Tyler's guts.
Except one late night at the office, his reasons become clear...and his control breaks.
Every time they touch, Joel's stony face comes alive, harsh lines smooth out, and for a minute, he looks serene. Happy, even. Just sex - dirty, intense, spectacular sex.
During their covert encounters, Tyler discovers the power he has over the lonesome man, and it's a heady feeling. What if he could set Joel free and give him peace of mind? When Tyler realizes how much Joel needs him, he doesn't regret breaking his own rules.
Gay erotic romance. Contains explicit scenes and sexual interactions between more than two partners. For adult readers only.
Christelle's rating :
The other book is different from what I read so far from this author (and there is no complaint from me in that statement). I commend Roe Horvat's explanatory notes about that.
Let’s get my niggle out of the way first : as much as I could sense a whole range of emotion including love and respect during all the highly erotic and sensual scenes, I didn’t get the same sense outside of them, so the path that lead to this loving relationship between Tyler and Joel felt too “insta-lovey” and the angst felt contrived for me. I missed what I enjoyed so much from Roe Horvat’s previous book The Layover.
That said, I found this story very sensual. And damned, all these erotic scenes were so well done imo, whatever the numbering : twosome, threesome, foursome. It was *SCORCHING HOT* and full of emotion. That was the best part of this “other book” for me : when I could eventually connect with the MCs (or with their two friends), grasp the strength of their bond and what kept me turning one page after the other.
