Dekker Callan is content with his life though he knows something is missing. Wanting the kind of love his friends share with their partners, Dekker is talked into taking part in a modeling and dating show as part of a fundraiser. He immediately falls in love with the anonymous, sexy voice on the other side of the wall, but fate has a surprise in store–his mystery man isn’t single.
Slade Gannon wasn’t supposed to take part in the dating show. That spot was for his roommate, Phil, who becomes ill and asks Slade to take his place. Slade has just recently gone through a breakup with his cheating boyfriend, George. Shocked and pleased when he wins the interest of handsome Dekker Callan, before he can go on the obligatory blind date, his ex asks for a second chance. Believing Dekker can’t possibly be as good on the inside as he looks on the outside, Slade agrees.
Dekker and Slade hit it off immediately, drawn to each other despite Slade being involved with someone else. They finally get their opportunity to be together when Slade finds out his boyfriend is still cheating, but just as they seem to discover the happiness they’ve been waiting for, George throws them one last hurdle—and this one may prove to be insurmountable.
I simply loved this story. All of these characters just melded together so well.
Dekker, what a contradiction. He’s shy but owns a sex store. Wants love but because of his shyness hasn’t found what he wants. Until Slade, then everything we’ve learned is thrown out the window. All bets are off, he becomes this fun, flirty, that’s my man and I’m going to have him beast.
Slade on the other hand, out of all of them, ran hot and cold for me. If he could see the ex, current BF becoming more and more abusive why stay? He didn’t come across as submissive or needy, he was a strong character so the car scene, I would have had the ex/current on his knees in seconds flat.
The friends they surround themselves with are amazing, everyone should have a set like these.
When we finally get to see Slade and Dekker together, enjoying the time together its so much fun. You just want them to succeeded. No more bad stuff, no more drama. Just happiness and love.
