When he finally decided one night to admit that he’s in love with Beck, that new life takes a new, hot and happy turn. But happiness is easily shattered, as he’s learned all too well, and this time it’s ruined by the arrival of a mysterious package and the arrival of men bent on violence.

Memories of a dead brother and an untouchable drug lord rise inevitably to the surface, and Diego dreads that the man he loves is mired in the world that Diego tried to escape.

OMG! So amazing start to a new series!

I’m at such a loss to write this review, simply because this book was so good, surprising, in so many area’s I just don’t know where to start.

We get a snap shot of Diego and his childhood, and what happened to structure him into manhood.

Then we see him in college and meeting Beck for the first time. As they go through the years, we learn more and more about all the main characters, Beck, Diego, and Denise.

Now, all three of them have graduated and working real jobs.  Problem is, Beck and Denise both work for a top secret agency. And slowly the secrets is stressing the relationship.  Diego is slowly going mad with his feelings for Beck. As the dynamic of the relationship starts to change, Diego starts to revisit his past, his beliefs, strengths and weakness.

I really enjoy learning about Diego, his heritage, his family. We really didn’t learn anything about Beck and his past, but I’m sure that’s to come. Once Beck and Diego finally stop dancing around each other and get down to business, the chemistry between them is amazing in and out of the bedroom. The dominance that Beck shows towards Diego is steamy HAWT. The power exchange… (fan myself)

The twist of the paranormal was unsuspected and truly fantastic.  The details we get are so amazing, this author is probably the best author I know for world building.   She is so amazing, making us fall into the characters so we actually become them.

We aren’t left with a cliffy, as such but you absolutely know this story is left in a pivotal moment. And I absolutely need the next NOW!
