Molly Reviews and Giveaway: Between The Lies by Draven St. James (Club Syn Book 1)

Blurb:
Professor Graham Darrius leads a double life, everyday he enriches the lives of students, but at night he struts the stage as Ebony Powers at Club Syn. The two personas cannot mix, which is an easy rule to follow until a sexy man from Iowa stumbles through the door.

Spencer Neil has never stepped foot into a gay bar and holy shit did he get more than he’s ever imagined. What did he know about drag queens, go-go boys and heated exchanges in dark corners? The world he lives in is academic and predictable. At least until he meets Graham, and sees that sometimes all is not what it seems.

Beneath the shock of discovery, misunderstandings, silk stockings, and wicked instruction Graham finds himself falling for Spencer and Spencer finds he’s getting a whole different kind of education.

Review:
This was a really good story. I liked the premise and the characters stood out and I connected with them so much. Spencer was so innocent but willing to do whatever it takes to reach his dreams. Graham was so dynamic in his hard ass nature in the classroom but almost insecure in his need for acceptance.
I was fascinated by Graham and Spencer’s meeting. Then by their second meeting. I kind of go back and forth on my feelings for the blackmail plot line. Though I do like how it was resolved in the end. I would have liked Spencer and Graham to talk about and overcome the obstacles in their way instead of just having sex then things are better.
They happy for now ending is sweet and I like how Spencer shows Graham his feelings about the dual life he leads. I really like the setup and the side characters. I’m eager to read more books in this world. Hopefully we get to see more characters get a happy ending. There’s a few I’m going to keep an eye out for to see who they wind up with.

Excerpt:
“You’re giving off some mixed signals with your silence, hon.”

The touch of fingers along his back had him tensing with need but chained by confusion. He bit his lip to hold in whatever whimpered plea might have escaped. He’d spent years suppressing his sexual nature, so the tendency toward silence was automatic by now. It was far more difficult to make himself let out noise of any kind, much less anything intelligible.

“I may be a lot of things, but I don’t seduce unwilling men.” Ebony’s soft caress left his body, and Spencer swayed toward the touch.

“Stay,” Spencer whispered before he could rethink the word, but he knew he meant it. Whatever Ebony had to offer him, his body sure as hell wanted…needed.

The warmth of Ebony’s body caged him in the small space, like a furnace. The click of the lock being set into place had his heart speeding. What am I doing?
