Teen shelter volunteer Rich searches for love until Diego, from LVMPD Search and Rescue, finds him.
After declaring his love life officially dead, Rich wonders if maybe he should stick with his shifter book boyfriends instead. It’s not as if he has much free time to date anyway. Between working long hours at a coffee shop, guarding his sodas from his hygienically challenged roommates, and running the programming at the Vegas LGBTQ teen shelter he founded—how could there ever be space for love in his life?
Diego Espinoza enjoys taking his downtime from working Search and Rescue, at the Lucky Cup coffee shop. He can set up his laptop, peruse good sport climbing spots and observe the blond barista he’s been pining over for a while. He imagines that the pretty boy has more offers than he knows what to do with, so it takes Diego time to work up the nerve to approach him.
Rich isn’t so sure about the rough looking Diego—even if he’s always thought he was hot—but once he decides to gives Diego a chance, there’s an immediate heat and connection that takes him by surprise. As they learn more about each other and try to find the way to a future together, strange and scary things start to happen.
It isn’t until Rich is injured in a bizarre accident that it becomes clear that there’s someone out there who not only doesn’t want Rich to find love—they want him dead.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of light bondage.
This was such a good book. I really enjoyed getting to see Rich have a happily ever after. He’s a total sweetheart and I loved him in the previous books. He works so hard for the youth at the shelter and trying to make things better for them. He truly has a heart of gold. I was glad when things worked out for him at the end with his jobs. He seemed unfulfilled the way things were at the beginning. Diego is perfect for Rich. He treats Rich like he is the most important person in the world and you can tell how much it means to Rich. They both were losing faith they’d find someone to spend their life with, even if they were both still pretty young. I was surprised at the age gap, but it was never a factor in their relationship. It was more like an “Oh. Ok. Didn’t know that and now I do” kind of a thing.
The plot line with someone trying to kill Rich wasn’t as fleshed out as I would have liked. However it brought an interesting dynamic to the story, what little there was of it. Though I will say, the scenes with all the action and suspense definitely made my heart pound and kept me on the edge of my seat.
Morticia Knight writes wonderful emotion and completely hot sex. Plus her stories keep me interested from start to finish. I love this series and can’t wait for it to continue.
Author Morticia Knight spends most of her nights writing about men loving men forever after. If there happens to be some friendly bondage or floggings involved, she doesn’t begrudge her characters whatever their filthy little heart’s desire. Even though she’s been crafting her naughty tales for more years than she’d like to share – her adventures as a published author began in 2011.
Once upon a time she was the lead singer in an indie rock band that toured the West Coast and charted on U.S. college radio. She currently resides on the northern Oregon coast and when she’s not fantasizing about hot men she takes walks along the ocean and annoys the local Karaoke bar patrons.
