Can the kinky billionaire owner of Dark Fantasy Resort Casino capture the heart of a muscled SWAT officer with a secret fetish?
SWAT Team Hostage Negotiator, Steve, wonders why he can’t stay away from the spoiled rich Allistair, owner of Dark Fantasy Resort Casino. They have mutual kinks – ones Steve can’t find with other lovers—but there’s something else about the emotionally detached, beautiful man that calls to him.
Billionaire Allistair stays alone in his luxury penthouse apartment at the top of Dark Fantasy, terrified of the real world and of opening himself up to genuine emotions. He takes lover after lover, all of them allowing him to do whatever he wants to their bodies, in the hopes that they can scam something from him.
One night is all he ever shares with a plaything—he knows they only want the money and luxury he can offer them and nothing more. But the down to earth Steve is different. They share the same kinks and are explosive when together. But could the muscled law officer ever want more than the lust-filled encounters that have become such an addiction?
As they grow closer, they discover they also have to find a balance between Steve’s everyday world and Allistair’s entitled world before they can truly find an ever after. They also have to make sure Allistair stays safe. Filthy rich playboys are too tempting to those who seek the ultimate payday—and who aren’t afraid of hurting someone to get it.

He could picture it already. He’d invite Brett over for coffee when Steve was at work. Allistair would tutor him, using his years of experience at putting on a good show for investors and CEOs. They’d be BFFs and Allistair would no longer feel like such a social misfit.
“…and this is my boyfriend, Allistair.”
His throat tightened. Okay. I’ve got this.
Cole offered his hand. “It’s great to finally meet you, Allistair. I’ve never seen Steve so happy.”
For a mere second, he stared at the meaty hand that Cole held aloft before snapping into charming mode.
“It’s wonderful to meet you too. I hope you’re doing better?”
He smiled wide and it was genuine for the most part. He had to admit, Cole really did seem pleased to meet him.
“Much. Thank you.” Cole angled his head to gaze up at Brett.
Well. I obviously have nothing to worry about.
“This is Brett, my boyfriend. I don’t know what I would’ve done without him these past few weeks.”
Allistair watched in amusement as Brett’s tan face brightened with a healthy blush. Yes. He needed to get together with him immediately. He shot his hand out.
“How marvelous to meet you, Brett. I must say, that’s an attractive pique polo. The color suits you.”
The blush stayed. “Thank you. I was actually going to comment on your slacks. I think I recognize them from Burberry’s fall collection? I used to work in retail.”
The bestest of friends. “You have an excellent eye.” Allistair glanced at Steve. “If you’d like, Brett and I can go make up plates for you both so you can get caught up?”
He almost batted his eyelashes, but resisted at the last moment. Steve grinned then swooped in for a kiss. “That would be great. Thanks.”
Allistair held out his arm to a surprised Brett. “Shall we?”
Buy the book:
this story is one of those stories that i knew i would love from the first page. i started reading it and absolutely could not put it down. it had me from the first line of the book. it’s like ms. knight reached into my brain (and heart) and pulled out a story she absolutely knew i would love.
while steve is in a job that leaves him with super heavy emotions that need to be taken care of by allistair and his heavy hand, it’s allistair that is the more broken of the two. steve is a big bad, ex-military swat team member that absolutely gives up all control to allistair and trusts allistair to take total care of him. allistair is a bit of a mess that really needs to learn how to live in the real world. there is very little build up between the two so we don’t have to wait to get to the good stuff. there is so much emotion between them and they are so good for each other, bringing out the best in each other. i absolutely loved their love story.
the angst and ‘suspense’ part of the story was subdued and not overly dramatic. it was perfect for the story. we got to see a little bit of past characters and meet a couple new ones that i can’t wait to read about.
overall this is another great book in a great series that i highly recommend.
