Connelly seemed to have a pathological need to 'rescue' people. He had to learn (the hard way) that wouldn't fly with Z who needed to feel strong and competent. This development in their relationship was wonderful. Z stood up for himself when it was so hard, and Connelly came to grips with the fact that he had to wait for Z to ask for help instead of butting in.
I think I'd give this book 4 1/2 stars because I love the Sassy Boyz and Z as well as Con and his partner Raoul. There are some tragic moments in this book and they are compounded by disastrous timing. I think some of those moments are going to stick with me for a long time. I am looking forward to the next book very much. I am hoping we get Tam's story soon!
The story is gritty and raw with so much emotion, suspense, and passion that I'm now suffering from a book hangover. I'm also suffering from withdrawal and I sincerely hope that this author plans to bring us more from the Sassy Boyz. After reading the first book from this series, the smoking and hot Fierce and Fabulous, I immediately went to the YouTube channel for the acknowledged dancer/choreographer Yanis Marshall. Watching him dance brings the story to life.
The Sassy Boyz series has a ready made crew of sexy dancers who have back stories of emotional and sometimes physical trauma. So far, two of them have found their way to happiness with the support and love they so richly deserve.
What is in store for the rest of the Boyz? Hopefully we'll find out in the next installment of this well written and entertaining series.
Hoping for another Sassy Boyz book!!
Connelly Reid—a police detective with a giving spirit and a helping heart—is such a likeable guy, yet he can go into dominant cop mode in a heartbeat. This guy gives off safe vibes as easily as he can send that thrill of power over your skin. So sexy. After an accidental meeting reveals the real Azariah Hayes, Con can't stop thinking about him.
Z's history is a rough one, and he has eeked his way to self sufficiency through sheer grit and determination. His mother always encouraged him to shine bright like a diamond but stay hard and strong, and to never let anyone or anything dull his sparkle—and that advice has savagely defined his choices as an adult. Since Azariah seems to experience more hardships in life than perks, he always expects the worst from people even though he holds himself to the highest standards while hiding behind a mask of bitchiness, snark, and indifference. Z would never admit it, but he's a great guy (a romantic, even!) under all that snark.
Azariah is so charismatic, this bright light that you just can't keep your eyes off of. I love that this series is based around beautiful, spirited femme men: these guys dance for a living, wear makeup and stilettos, and live life on their own terms. They're all so used to armoring up for the rest of the world that every sentimentality, every secret hope is a danger to that carefully maintained equilibrium.
Even in book two, I can tell this series won't get stale or predictable. And the dancing, oh it is to DIE for. The choreography is written so perfectly: I can practically see these guys killing the routines and flaunting the moves in their sky-high heels and rock star gear. The imagery is so vivid, I wish I could watch them perform in real life.
Connelly and Z's story is intense, shocking, deep. It's also true to the characters. The author doesn't shy away from hard choices and she doesn't take the safe route through the conflict. The result is a vibrantly, painfully, beautifully evocative story featuring characters who bleed through the full spectrum of love and lust. I ADORED this book, devoured it in less than a day. I can't wait to see what Ms. Varlet has in store for the rest of the Sassy Boyz!
