Miles Sorenson prides himself on his brutal honesty. Facts and logic are a hell of a lot easier to deal with than emotions. He’s got his career and a small, close-knit group of friends, and he doesn’t need nor want anything else. The total opposite of Quinn Barker, who doesn’t take life too seriously and thinks a good laugh can cure anything.
When Quinn takes Miles home, it’s supposed to be a one-time deal. Except they really click in the sack and end up spending the weekend together, enjoying each other's bodies as much as their company…to Miles’s dismay. Matters get even more muddled when, months later, they run into each other at the popular West Hollywood bar, Wild Side, and pick up right where they left off. On the surface, Quinn and Miles are like oil and water, but the draw between them is undeniable. As their lives further entwine, they realize there’s more to their connection than the way they singe the sheets together. But demons from the past have a way of catching up, and no matter how strong the link is tying Miles and Quinn together, the pressure may be enough to make it snap.
Miles still held him by the back of the head. Their lips were inches apart now, breaths heavy, Miles panting as he looked at Quinn. He breathed in, Miles out, Miles in, Quinn out. “You gonna fuck me or what, Counselor?” he finally asked, and then they were stumbling out of the shower—teeth clanking, tongues slashing, lips searching. He felt like Miles was going to devour him, take him whole, and in this moment, he would welcome it. Miles kissed him until they got to the sink. “Bend over it,” he said, and goose bumps shot across Quinn’s skin at the command. He did as Miles said. Miles’s hand brushed down his back, his finger tracing each rise and fall of Quinn’s spine. “Perfect arch.” Quinn looked up, met Miles’s eyes in the mirror and replied, “I know.” Because he did. He was fucking good at this. “Mouthy little bottom, aren’t you?” Miles teased. “Realistically confident.” “You’re killing me.” Miles looked away, and Quinn knew it was because this was a lot. Because just fucking before he’d admitted that Quinn intrigued him was one thing, but now they both knew this was about more than just a piece of ass. What? They hadn’t gotten that far yet and didn’t know each other well enough to figure it out either, but it was a truth between them that hadn’t been there the first weekend they’d shared. Or maybe they had known it but hadn’t been able to admit it. “Get in me,” Quinn told him. “Mouthy,” Miles said again. “Going to have to do something about that.”


Miles and Quinn walked into my heart the moment I started to read their story. They are a reader's dream when it comes to characters. They are fun and sexy, heart breaking and hot, and have a connection that runs deep.

Miles Sorenson always needed things to fit, to play by a set a rules. He has a great successful job, a wonderful family, and some of the greatest best-friends. There was nothing he wanted more than what he already had. Quinn Barker changed all that. One night turned into a weekend and months later a run in turned into a relationship.

Things were fun and sexy and great but they struggled because for Miles, Quinn didn’t make sense, he was everything he never thought he wanted or needed. For Quinn the idea that Miles this distant, closed off, only looking for some fun guy, could be more, could be the one that made him feel safe enough to sleep was a shock.

I loved their banter and how they interacted throughout the whole book and not just with each other but the other guys. Chance and Oliver and Matt were back and not just to tease their best-friend but they were there, as much as Miles would let them be, to support Miles and they loved Quinn. They did their part as secondary characters and played important roles in furthering the story. My favorite part was between Matt and Miles. It was one that truly showed that evolution in Miles from the beginning of the story.

One of my favorite quotes…

“I got you, baby boy,” he said as Quinn wrapped his arms around Miles’s neck. “I got you. I’m here.” He kissed Quinn’s forehead. Held him tight. In this moment, nothing else mattered…”
