Stone pulled his jeans all the way off, dropping them to the floor along with his sexy briefs. I couldn't help notice how manly they were; everything about Stone was manly. If I hadn't met him at a gay club, I never would have thought he batted for my team, but every bit of me was so happy he did. It never hurt to have out jocks on the team! He smelled masculine too. Some of that could have been his products that I could smell on myself too, but some of it was just his own natural, earthy scent that I couldn't get enough of. As I stared at him, waiting for more, his face shifted to something a little less sexy. His brows pressed down, making him appear unhappy or concerned. “What?” “Campbell. Listen. I need to know what else you lied about.” I chuckled, nervously. “What?” Why the hell did he bring this shit up now, especially when I thought we'd gotten past it?
Stone and Campbell meet on the dance floor. Their eyes meet and the instant pull is too much for both of them. They are wrapped around each other with no intention of letting go. Yes, this is an insta-lust book. Problem is, Campbell starts things off with lies and it feels doomed.
When Stone and Campbell are between the sheets it’s hot and heavy and very sexy. There’s no issues in the bedroom that’s for sure and Lynn Michaels writes some killer sex scenes.
But, it comes down to the lies in the end and Stone's inability to let it go, even when he says he wants to move on from them. I had issues with both characters and the things that came out of their mouths. One with the lies and the other with not being able to make up his mind.
Great editing and grammar and the flow was very well done. I will say there was one scene I found myself excited to see happen but it never did. I don’t want to say what scene but I think I built myself up for it and the absence of it made me sad lol. It’s not a vital part that has to be there, just something I wanted. I thought we were being built to see it but clearly I was wrong.
There’s serious drama in this tale. We have family issues, trust issues, kidnapping issues… a lot of issues. Campbell has great friends and Stone has awesome family that work their butts off to try and knock some sense into these guys constantly.
I did enjoy the story even though I was missing some things. It was entertaining and slightly suspenseful. Low angst but a lot of love.
