A hot encounter with a security guard afterhours plunges uptight, Wall Street broker Nate Dennis into obsession and possibly something more.
Nate Dennis made corporate VP at thirty-one, won’t spend a dime for a taxi or laundry, and is socking away enough money to retire at forty-five and live large. He’s arranged his life to not make his mom’s mistake of falling in love with a guy who’s going to leave him broken. Besides, any relationship he’s tried has been a helpless puzzle. He’s better at hooking up, no strings attached, and in New York City, there’s no shortage of hot guys with sick bodies who are interested in the same thing.
Then an afterhours encounter in the office with a new security guard Thiago has him questioning everything.
This book started off with a bang and kept going. By Bang…I mean…Holy Hannah…this was pure Erotica. Don’t get me wrong…there was a pretty good story involved. Two Men who come from different walks of life meet and start a relationship. Nate and Thiago…these two men who were so very different who found their soul mate…it was nice but truly there was lots and lots of sex between them. I mean…A LOT OF SEX!!! A really healthy portion of the story is sex. Don’t get me wrong…it was really well written and done perfectly for an erotic romance novel. I guess, I just missed that this was an erotic romance and that’s on me as I didn’t really look at the tags.
The story of how Nate and Thiago meet and started this love affair is kinda cute…Thiago working as a security guard at the building where Nate works…sweet. The first time that they are together…HAWT!! Then comes the part where they both play the waiting game and then trying to find a happy balance in their relationship…that takes hard work. Nate never thought that he’d be the relationship type of guy and/or if it does happen…it’ll be later in life Then to fall for Thiago the way he has…well that has him off balance. Seeing as how this story is told from Nate’s POV…we only get his take on the story. Nate is this 32-year old man who’s Father walked out on his family when Nate was six and his mother and sister have never recovered from the loss. Nate has decided that his career will take the number 1 spot in his life and he’ll make his money and retire early and really start to live again…well…that is perfect for what Nate wants. To truly just focus on his career and allow his personal life to just be about the hook ups until he was ready for the relationship.
Thiago is a young man from Brazil who is in the country illegally and just trying to make a living. He’s living with 2 other guys and his work is screwing him over. To find a guy as good to him as Nate is something that Thiago can’t even imagine could be his. Thiago is a good man who has had to do somethings that he’d rather not have, but he doesn’t regret his actions as they kept food on the table and a roof over his head. Thiago wants so much for his life and finding Nate has been an unexpected surprise. Something that he wants and yet, it’s hard to for Thiago to be with someone who has so much and he’s struggling so much. I like that even though Thiago is struggling…he’s doing his best to make things work between them.
Now, I have to say that these two men really need to work on their communication. I get that you get angry and you need to walk away from the situation…but really, you also need to adult enough to talk things through. But, that could be one of my really big pet peeves. Speak to each other and figure things out…but I guess, you’ve got to have something to give the characters some issues.
Overall, this was a pretty good story. I enjoyed it. I will say that if you want to have a steamy afternoon read, this is your story.
