That one was a MF romance involving Grey's twin sister Kelsie and his best friend and business partner John. It is obvious from the start of this one, however, that all you may have missed in the first book (The Sweetest Tattoo) is readily dealt with in this one.
Grey and Sirus are the two of the most extraordinarily sworn-to-no-more-relationships gay alpha males you will ever meet. Early 30s, burned by the past in love, both successful in their business lives, Grey and Sirus begin what looks like to be a pure sexual tryst that suddenly evolves into an astonishingly deep, and extremely graphic, love story like few others of the genre.
Cameron Dane has written some chapters here that are pure sex, often one right after another within the same scene, and what you get is pure lust, and eventually love, that has no boundaries. There is no BDSM, just pure unadulterated and smashing masculine heat.
In the end we are desperate for more--and the next book in the series looks like Grey and Sirus may be around for a while. If not, wow, just to have had them on these pages was a treat.
Grey hasn't let himself get close to anyone and never ever ever bottoms, after a bad experience he had in college. He does everything he can to keep everyone at arms length. Well, everyone except his sister Kelsey and his best friend John. He's extremely protective of his sister. And after setting her up with John (which turned out beautifully), she decides to return the favor and lets Sirus borrow the cabin when he's having water issues in his cabin - and doesn't tell Grey when he decides to take a bit of a vacation to the cabin he rarely uses. Attraction ensues, which turns to rudeness and then, finally hot monkey sex.
While not nearly as jaded as Grey, Sirus isn't really in the market for a relationship either. He's been burned and feels that people he dates try to turn him into something he isn't. Sirus doesn't see himself as the brilliant artist he is. For him, it is just a hobby. He's a truck driver for a living and he enjoys having some control over his day to day.
There are a good number of issues these two go through that could have been avoided (as is so often true IRL) by actually talking. Instead, they hurt each other a few times before they figure out that they don't want to live without one another. Oh, the angst!
The sex -- deliciously hot. This was my first Cameron Dane novel, and I definitely see her appeal.
Some writers jump into the intimacy so quickly that they fail to draw me into the romance/passion of the Story. I have to be invested in the two lead characters in order to really care that they are having an amazing time in the bedroom. (Or on top of the work bench, or out on the front porch, or on the couch, ect.. . Where ever the mood strikes! I don't judge!) Although things heated up fairly quickly, Cameron Dane did a great job of including insights into both the men as their relationship progressed. They weren't two strangers making out in the living room. They were two great guys who meet, fall for each other, have a lot of enthusiastic sex, make the choice to grow closer and become a couple.
The two men in this story are in their 30's. Grey was much more controlled and emotionally distant that Sirus, but as the story developed you learn about Grey's difficult upbringing and the heavy responsibilities that fell on him at a young age. These insights into his younger life were heart breaking. I wasn't at all surprised that a guy that had survived so much would want to shy away from emotional intimacy with any person! Sirus is in many ways Grey's opposite. He is not a man who has casual sex. He is a man who is looking for a connection with another person. He's very sweet and loveable. But I like him even more because he was not a pushover. He gets right in Grey's face and lets him know when he is pissed off by Grey's coldness.
The story wraps up with Grey's realization that loosing Sirus will be the single worst mistake of his life. And by the time you reach that point in the story the author really convinces you that this is true. You will be saying to yourself, "Grey you're an idiot if you let this guy get away."
If you like well written, red-hot passion and two incredible gorgeous guys you will love this book!
