I purchased this book for free at All Romance Ebooks.
Adam has been blackmailing Ross Marlowe, threatening to out him as gay to the press unless Ross pays Adam money to keep quiet. But tired of the deception, Adam goes public anyway in order to force Ross to accept who he is and stop playing at being straight. Will this gambit allow Adam to be with Ross the way he wants or will it backfire?
I have to admit, starting the story with one character nearly strangling the other to death made me doubt a happy resolution. I wouldn’t want to stay with someone who tried to kill me but I just rolled with the narrative after that. This story is well written and emotional but really short, wrapped up too well too quickly. I would have liked to see the conflict play out over a longer period of time like they would in real life but… Hey, who reads these things for ‘real life?’
Lanyon’s short story is a quick, sweet, and explicit (one sex scene) read that could be easily finished in an afternoon. I’d give it a 2.7 out of 5 for that scary strangling at the beginning.
