Police captain Asher Penaz’s staunch professionalism bleeds into his home life, down to his neatly pressed attire and spartan apartment. He enjoys being in charge and in control, so his sudden and powerful attraction to the lighthearted, free-spirited Daniel Tover throws him for a loop. In his entire life, Daniel has never gotten what he needs, so he moves to the next place, the next job, the next attempt to find something worth staying for, always landing at the top of his game, but never feeling like he belongs.
The chemistry between Asher and Daniel sizzles, but with all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. If Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need.
Review: I have most of CC's books and have really enjoyed them, but this was not a favorite series of mine. Not that the books are not good because they are, they are just not for me. I will explain. I am not a fan of BDSM. This book touches on it with Asher, his past lovers, and a trip to the BDSM club. I think from the beginning I did not feel Asher as a likable main character, he is too bossy and arrogant. Daniel, a younger man, well I didn't feel him either. His description of being "too beautiful" and everyone always telling him,... I didn't buy it. Good book but not great like some others that I have read from CC. I did complete this book and continued to read all the books in the series. Just because I didn't feel these two does not mean I won't like the guys in the next books.
