When Master Damien Richardson (Day to his friends) takes over the front desk manager job at the Iron Eagle Gym, he knows he’s going to need an assistant. But finding the right person for the job is harder than he thought it would be. When he meets Saw, he thinks he’s found the solution to all his problems, and maybe something more.
Sawyer Whitehead lost his master to a tragic car accident some years ago, and since then one opportunity after another has gone sour on him. Thoroughly convinced he’s cursed and a jinx to everything and everyone he touches, he refuses to officially become Day’s assistant because he knows that as soon as he does, something terrible will happen. He’s even more determined not to get involved with Day, despite his attraction, because it would kill him to be responsible for tragedy befalling the lovely man.
This is part 3 in the series, and can be read as a stand alone book with no confusion or feeling that you are missing anything.
This is one of those authors that I will automatically get a book just because of who wrote it.
That being said, if you have never read a Sean Michael book before one thing that can be said it there will be a very dynamic and extremely sexual twist to his main characters.
In this book I was hooked on Saw. I could connect with what this character had dealt with and how he seemed to build his life around what he felt was the best way for him to minimize any future pain.
When Day works into his safe life things become more difficult for both of them. Day has his own feelings about the best way to approach life. He is a very bold and energetic type personality who believes that everyone should meet life head on. The chemistry between these two is so hot its burning off the pages.
I found myself holding my breath during the discussions because both sides had valid points. I would then laugh at myself, thinking your reading a book, which made me smile and continue reading. This made it a great book to me.
