I read this last night as I couldn't sleep and it didn't lull me to sleep.
Morgan Drake is a cubical rat, sweet, shy, withdrawn and adorable to no end. He wants to be an artist but had to get a job to help his family out.
One night he is witness to a murder and after that, he is a witness under FBI protection.
When his hideout is compromised, he is picked up by Nikolaj Valentinov, a bodyguard working for Sanctuary.
They hide in a safe house up in the mountains, away from other people.
Nik is the typical determent by-the-book bodyguard, eyes on the ball and all that. However, he is also rather lonely and soon falls hard for the sweet Morgan. The feelings are mutual and after a little fighting they end up in the shower together – and isn't that a treat for them and us as readers.
Love and sex happens over the next weeks but soon it is time to get Morgan to the witness stand to testify.
However, not everything is going the way it is supposed to.
Morgan and Nik are a sweet and adorable couple, providing smiles and happiness and a little sad along the story.
PS; The otter, ohhh the otter ;)
The two MC's worked well together. "Tough guy" Nik and "nice guy" Morgan. My feelings for these two were that the titles were not as suited as some people think. In no way did I think Morgan was an innocent little boy, and Nik had that soft side under everything. It was a nice contrast for the two MC's. It can get kind of boring when the MC's are what everyone expects from the beginning. I love depth to my characters and I got it.
The story is basic enough in the beginning. Morgan was the witness to a murder and a cop friend of Nik's was protecting him. The friend got shot and Nik took over from Morgan. It was a messy case and something that scarred Morgan. Nik knew this and fought any attraction because he knew it was his job to protect Morgan. Nothing ever words out the way people expect though, and lovable Morgan managed to get Nik to agree to a sex while we're here deal. But like most romances, Nik and Morgan fell in love.
We had a mixture of cute and hot scenes. The shower scene was a particular favourite as well as the river bank one. I enjoyed the ending, some may say it was rushed, but I was happy that we got them together. It also introduced us to Dale, our next Sanctuary MC. He was a hero for me in this and I loved him for the wonderful deed he did.

I liked the characters, and over-all the plot was interesting. I thought they jumped into ~Love~ a little too quickly, and the end of the case...Read more
