The last thing Linton needs when he arrives home after three months in the States, is to find his beautiful flat is a squat, complete with his younger brother Dirk, who’s lying in Linton’s bed with a couple who’ve paid him for sex. Dirk isn’t even supposed to have a key. But after Linton throws Dirk out, life slams in hard and if his brother is to have any hope of a future, Linton has to play dirty. Or at least pretend to. What he hasn’t factored in is having to play the game to the bitter end.
Film star Thorne Morrisey has everything. Good looks, charm, seductive magnetism and a voice that could charm a snake from its basket. He can also be a real shit and yet people still love him – though he’d rather not have the love of his ex. Owen’s a suicidal wreck after Thorne dumped him in a very public and humiliating way and Owen’s wealthy brother has his own reasons for wanting revenge on Thorne. Max’s weapon of choice is his employee, Linton.
This is an amazing but very emotional story. Lots of things that could make people stop and take a break. And with it coming in at just over 300 pages, that’s okay.
We’ve got several players throughout this complex yet brilliant tale. And by the end, this amazing word smith of an author has them all tied together in a neat (ish) and complete bow. If not a little screwed up, and most definitely telling yourself, glad that’s not my brother.
We start with Dirk and the perfect bother, Linton. Linton was sent to America for a few months because of an office affair. And while away, Dirk decides to stay in Linton’s flat. Now three months later, stuff hits the fan and the effects of bad choice after bad choice start showing.
Then we have Thorne, movie star, and object of some one’s scorn. Thorne seems to be the victim of a date rape and is reeling from this when he finds a man being beaten. Calling 999 will lead to a series of events that changes his life as well as this mans.
As these worlds collide, we, the reader is left transfixed. How many bad guys can one story have?!? And not all bad guys are the pimps on the streets.
Luckily, we are left we the perfect HEA but wow, getting there….
