When Spencer agreed to help take down the leader of a Portland crime family, he didn’t realize he’d end the night with the bloodied body of an unknowing accomplice in his arms. His initial interest in Dylan was purely physical but when Dylan stepped in front of Topher’s gun and saved Spencer, the lust quickly turned into something more. Something he wasn’t sure he’d ever find in the fast-paced dot com world he was from.
For mature readers.
Categories: M/M Romance
He looks over his shoulder at his back, straining to see the smeared blood. “This should be fun.”
I turn around and step back to him. “Oh, right. Well, um, I can, you know, help with your back…if you want.”
Dylan’s eyes drop to my crotch and slowly trail up to my face. “Sure, if you don’t mind.”
I silently follow him into the bathroom. He turns on the bath faucet and sets the temperature. Looking down at his boxers then back at me, he steps over the side of the tub and lowers himself into the rising water, careful to keep his bandages dry. “Ahh, that fucking hurts but it feels good.”
I reach for the bar of soap and unwrap the delicate paper surrounding it. Dipping it in the water with a hand towel, I lather it up. “Lean forward a little.”
Dylan looks deeply into my eyes before scooting forward and resting his cheek on the side of the tub. With gentle strokes, I wash away the smears of blood on his back and side. When there isn’t anything left on his back, I hold my breath and move the towel to the outside of his bronze bicep.
One eye peeks open and Dylan smiles faintly without stopping me. “I could just fall asleep.”
“Well, I probably can’t lift you out without hurting your shoulder so try to stay awake for another minute.” With much more force, I run the sudsy towel over the front of his torso, stopping about an inch from the waist band of his wet boxers.

another good book in this series!
i love the hot nerd so spencer is a great addition to the characters in this series! he is strong and vulnerable at the same time. he’s looking for a permanent relationship and was struck dumb when he first met dylan. he’s a little nervous about such a ‘stud’ being interested in a geek like him and is unsure of himself and their relationship through most of the book. dylan feels like he’s in limbo since his boss (to whom he was indentured) is brought down. he is immediately smitten with spencer but doens’t think he’s good enough for him. the vulnerability shown but this strong man is endearing. they seem to skirt around whether or not they both want a permanent relationship but deep down they both do.
this book is pretty action packed with a couple of quick, hot sex scenes. i was a little disappointed in the ending…the door seems to be wide open for their future but the next book is about someone else entirely. i’m hopeful we’ll see more of these 2 in the next book.
