This was a surprisingly great book filled with banter, mystery, great dialog and sizzling chemistry. What more could I ask for?
Michael "Finn" Finnegan is a drama teacher at a prep school who has been hurt by love in the past and is skeptical of ever find it again. Then he meets Max Douglas and he finds himself having lustful thoughts and throwing himself at him. He is attracted to Max on the spot but after they had their first encounter he questions his impulsiveness, but goes on with his life nonetheless. However, when they find themselves in close quarters again, Finn finds himself confronting feelings of need, lust and fear. His attraction to Max is still active, even when Max acts like a total jerk, and he fears that his need to feed that lust is going to drive him straight into a broken heart.
Max is an ex-Marine security specialist. From Finn's point of view I could gather that he was a straight-arrow kind of guy. He liked order and he liked control. And it is that control which leads to Finn's downfall. And Man! how I enjoyed those moments when Max unleashed his dominating side on Finn. It made for some great scenes. But just as those where amazing, so were the moments where he showed some vulnerability or tenderness. With those he just melted me right into a puddle of goo.
I liked the way the author, L.B. Gregg, went about their relationship. Their getting together was fun, insightful and totally hot. I loved their banter and dialog. It really showcased their personality to the max and I truly appreciated that. Max so serious and Finn so laid back, but when they worked together it was magic. His yin to his yang. The mystery and the romance were brought together well. I liked that they were nicely balanced. It kept me in a state of anticipation on both counts. I wanted to know who was behind what was happening and I needed to know how these two were going to get together.
Once again, L.B. Gregg drew into the town of Smithfield and I can't wait to go back. My only complain is that I wanted to see more of Finn and Max's relationship and I think an epilogue would have solved that little problem for me. But other than that, this was another great addition to the series and a great read.
