Overcoming their differences and discovering new sides of each other, Ethan and Ryder are trying their hands at this new thing called a relationship. Ethan’s insecurities and his focus on putting Ryder’s business first are contradicting Ryder’s need to shout his love from the rooftops.
But that’s the personal side of things. The business is in trouble, too, since Ethan’s keen eye caught flaws in Black Ryder’s books and exposed the previous accountant stealing from the storage. The piles of messy ledgers are keeping Ethan busy while Ryder’s business is being invaded by pimps. To top off the new couple’s problems, a rentboy named Hayden dances his way to the front of Black Ryder’s stage with enough trouble in his wake to claim all of Ryder’s attention.
Ethan and Ryder are learning each other in their new relationship. Ethan wants to protect Ryder’s business and keep his reputation as a sex god. Which means keeping their love affair secret. Ryder is at odds about this because all he wants to do is shout his love for Ethan at everyone he comes in contact with. Ryder isn’t comfortable with them hiding, but he’s letting Ethan run the show. Add a rent boy who dances into Ryder’s good graces and pimps trying to take over Black Ryder, and it’s a recipe for disaster. Oh, and did I mention Ryder’s possible future in-laws?
Ethan is still my favorite character. He’s brilliant with numbers but not so much with relationships. He still has a lot of self-doubt and low self-esteem to work on. It can’t be easy when you’re dating a sex god. He’s afraid of what people will say and how their relationship will affect Ryder’s business. He’s trying to be different for his man but not in the ways he should be. Poor guy.
Ryder is having a fit. He wants Ethan to want to show his affections for Ryder beyond the closed doors of their shared spaces. He knows Ethan is insecure, but damn it, he’s tired of keeping them a secret. He also has his business to think about and all the drama surrounding it lately. He only wanted a safe haven for like-minded people to enjoy. Now he has pimps to contend with. Did I mention possible future in-laws?
Hayden just needs a break. He’s tired of the same old routine. He finally convinces his “boss” to let him venture out to new territory and what he finds is the beginning of a shit storm he wasn’t prepared for.
Book two of this fantastic series is fast-paced and so many feels! These guys are going to get their happily ever after if I have anything to say about it! Keep reading. It’s only gets better!
