Overview

Beauty is only skin deep…until love reveals what lies beneath.

As mob boss Yvgeny Mosko’s open secret, Dylan Anderson is happy enough with a passionate, if loveless, arrangement that affords him a life of luxury. But at thirty-six, he wonders how committed Mosko will be to an aging lover.

He finds out when a rival gang kidnaps him in a turf war everyone’s sure to lose. Mosko unleashes deadly force, leaving no one alive except for a young man whose dark eyes tug at Dylan’s heart—and the conscience he thought he’d excised long ago.

Though he tried to stop the kidnapping, William “Memo” Escobar knows Mosko will use what’s left of him to send a powerful message to his rivals. When Mosko’s pampered pretty boy risks everything to help him escape, he can’t believe his luck.

William figures he’s better suited to life off the grid, but as the days go by he begins to realize Dylan’s beauty is more than skin deep. And as Dylan coaxes more and more beguiling smiles from William, he yearns for things—like family ties—he’d thought were best forgotten.

Yet behind their newfound happiness lurks the certain knowledge that no matter how careful they are, Mosko will come for what’s his.

Warning: This book contains a mob boss, a kept man, and a reluctant kidnapper who will never have to hear the words, “Size doesn’t matter.”

    Okay

    I was disappointed considering I usually love what she writes. This however felt like she was trying to put too many angles and elements to it that you couldn't escape from reality. I kept finding myself just not believing her character. Which is a mood killer, it's like a kid slamming into the house when your trying to get some alone time with your honey. I wouldn't put it down as, as bad as what I've had to endure lately. I just wouldn't put it up there with the top twenty M/M books.

    didn't make my list

    it's really well written and it explores the lives of the protagonists very well. And I really like how Maxfield took the standard reasons for the protagonist to leave home and showed his somewhat skewed version of reality. I just wasn't feeling the connection between Dylan and William that drove them to be star-crossed lovers. I would have liked to see more of Dylan with Mosko, I guess.

    Great Story - Had Me Glued to My Seat

    Be prepared to be seduced by this dark story. Dylan Anderson, the boyfriend of the gang leader, is caught in a turf war between gangs. William Escobar is along for the ride with his brother, who is part of the gang that kidnaps Dylan. When the Dylan's boyfriend, Yvgeny Mosko catches up with the gang that snatched him, they are all killed, save William.

    The characters Ms. Maxfield has created are dark and multi-dimensional with secrets that surprised me. Dylan isn't really who he says he is and I wasn't sure even Dylan remembered who he was at times. In a trip back to his past, Dylan reconnects with the person he used to be before he moved to Vegas and comes to terms with a past he wants to leave behind.

    My only issue is that with the tagline William never has to hear "size doesn't matter," I expected a lot more from the romance. Instead, it never really wowed me and the relationship between Dylan and William is lukewarm at best. This book is still an amazing story, the twist and turns keeping me on the edge of my seat. Of course since Mosko is a gang leader, he can't just let Dylan go without retribution and the ending came as a shock to me.

    Ms. Maxfield has created a story that kept me glued to my reader until the last second with all of the twists and turns. If you enjoy gay fiction with a strong romantic elements, you enjoy this book and I highly recommend it.
