Overview

Fast Connection by Megan Erickson, Santino Hassell, Eric London, Guy Locke

After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic "Nicky" Costigan, the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.

When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.

He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.

When I read this book was about Dominic I was a little hesitant, I mean yes in the past book he made some amends but I was still doubtful about his true intentions, of course I had nothing to worry about because I was so in love with his character from the get go. Dominic s trying to figure out his life after getting out of the army and that includes maybe dating other guys. So, first let me tell you a little bit about Dominic life at home, he is conflicted on what to do now, he doesn’t know if he should pursue something new or stay at the family business and his stress and struggles were palpable, I felt so bad for him, I wanted to guide him and give him advice, my heart broke a few times because of this guy. On the other side he is also trying to see if he can get or develop a connection with another guy and so he goes to a dating app where he meets Luke, now I adored Luke even if he was stubborn from time to time, I like how he wasn’t what I was expecting at all but soon I realized that he was actually perfect for Dominic. Another wonderful book in this series with just as amazing characters as the last one.

I loved this even more than book one. I have to say that I really disliked Costigan in the first book. I thought he was a huge jerk and didn't see how I could possibly like him at all in this book, but I was wrong. I stayed up way too later to finish reading this. In this book I fell in love with Dominic and Luke. I think the building of their relationship was very realistic. I would definitely read this one again.

I went into this one not knowing if I was going to like this one and ended up loving it. When we first meet Dominic in the first book, he's a bit of a jerk. I went into this one fully expecting to hate him. Imagine my surprise when I ended up loving him and this book even more than the first one in the series. Megan Erickson is one of those authors on my auto-buy list. I love everything she writes, and this one didn't disappoint. Dominic still has a little bit of that cockiness from the first book and definitely still crack the jokes, but in this one we start to see a different side of him. While on the outside he may appear cocky and sure of himself, on the inside he has no idea what he should be doing with his life and is worried about his family. I loved his lighthearted personality and thought he was adorable. Luke is 12 years older than Dominic and a lot more closed off than Dominic is. He lives his personal life by a set of rules that keep him from getting close to anyone. I wasn't sure how I felt about Luke at first because he wasn't the nicest to Dominic and it made me mad. But as the book continued and he started to open up, I really liked him too. He is fiercely protective of the ones he loves. I loved that Megan Erickson included the couple from the first story in this one because it's always nice to see them again. This book is the second in the series but can be read as a standalone. Personally, I would say to read the first one in the series first so you get a feel for all of the characters in this one. There are plenty of sizzling scenes and the Grindr chats had me smiling like a goof. I would definitely recommend this one.

I love the realness in this story. The situations, limitations and imperfectness of life were there. The characters didn’t have completely horrific lives or totally fairytale lives, which happens quite often in books. Fast Connection has just the right mix of real drama and sexy to keep the reader understanding and interested. We met Dominic in the first book. He came off as a little annoying, but that was just a type of defensive behavior. Dominic is very good-looking, but he doesn’t have the best self-esteem. He tries to make every situation not be serious so that it isn’t obvious when something means a lot to him or hurts his feelings. Luke has had a couple of things rock him to his core in the past so he has a chip on his shoulder. He recognizes his issues and chooses when possible to remove anything from his life, which will cause him drama. Luke is the grump to Dominic’s clown, but both guys have huge hearts hidden underneath. Both are exactly the life shake up the other needs. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and cannot wait for more from this writing duo.

Once again this author duo has dished up a delectable sexy romance with a lot of heart. Plus, they've managed to redeem Dominic's character from his initial introduction to readers in Strong Signal (book 1 of the series) by showing the other sides to his character than just the arrogant and somewhat entitled man we saw before. Dominic in fact knows that he didn't treat Garrett well, and in this story, he's already made amends with Garrett. The fact that he's decided he's bisexual is a big deal for him, and something he is still dealing with. He comes across as a man who puts family loyalty very high on his list, even if he feels that sometimes they don't deserve it. He's concerned about his sister who is living with him and his parents, and in particular her fractious relationship with their parents. Dominic's father has a lot of stress related anger management issues and even though he constantly is belittling Dominic (he doesn't think much of his stint in the army), it doesn't stop Dominic from trying to find ways to help the business improve. On the surface Dominic might appear as a player, but in reality he has a good heart. In his awkward determination to 'get some' , his initial texting interactions with Luke are quite funny, and when they get together in person, he comes across a little bit vulnerable but brave too - he wants things to be good with Luke and to acquit himself well in the bedroom, especially since it's his first time really hooking up with a guy. I really felt for him, in his determination to figure out a way to make things better for himself and his family, and in figuring out his own sexual and relationship needs. Luke is also an interesting character. Though he'd been married to a woman, his current interest is all men. He had the unfortunate situation of being discharged from the military when caught in a compromising position with another man under the 'Don't Ask Don't Tell' policy, a man who then caused him a lot of problems outside of the army. He doesn't trust others easily, and so one night stands are his thing now. He's particularly concerned for his children's safety even though they are teenagers, and is determined to keep his personal life and his hookups very separate. Dominic is a refreshing surprise for him. Their night together is so good that Luke can't stop thinking about him and as a result he's unable to resist seeing him again. The problem comes in the fact that they are both living in the same neighbourhood and are bound to run into each other. And when they do - well, suffice it to say that the second half of the story is all about the consequences of their growing feelings for each other and the reality of their family situations. There is a lot to love about this story - the combination of an emotionally charged romance with some very sexy scenes, and characters that deserve to be happy make it hard to put down once you start. Family relationships play a key role, and make it clear that relationships don't happen in a vacuum - they will always be influenced by those around us. I really enjoyed how the whole story played out and there are lots of laughs to go along with the more serious moments. This series is really a delight to read, and I look forward to more!

You know, I actually didn’t think I could like Dominic “Nicky” Costigan after the way he acted and treated Garret in book one. He was really a jerk…or so I thought. So imagine my surprise that he is now one of my favorite characters in this series. Go figure. Dominic doesn’t like to be called Nicky, but don’t tell his family, they won’t listen anyway; his family is kind of ….difficult. Here he is, fresh out of the military, and treated as if he were off at summer camp instead of in a war zone. His dad was a piece of work, and was probably why I forgave him so easily; that and the fact that he was truly an authentic and transparent guy. You never have to guess with Dominic because he so totally open. Luke is another story; older, also ex-military, but as closed off and difficult to read as a brick wall. He gave Dominic sex, that’s it. No small talk, no cuddles; the epitome of “wham bam, thank you sir, now get out”. But Luke also has a history. He was discharged when it was not legal to be gay in the military, he is a father of teenagers, and is divorced from their mother. He comes off like a jerk, but he has reasons…lots of reasons. Dominic and Luke have major mountains to climb, but so many parts of their budding relationship give the reader hope; the sandwiches after sex being one. I understood Luke, but by this time I really loved Dominic so I needed Luke to lighten up a bit. It is always annoying when one person appears to be more invested in the relationship than the other person, and Dominic was getting tired of being the odd man out. Fortunately, eventually, Luke pulls his head out of his butt and gets with the program. These two have family dramas to deal with, and especially Dominic’s dad. That man comes around at the end, but I wanted to strike him myself. But the sex between these two is off the charts. Who knew little Nicky Costigan would be such a screaming bottom. I kind of loved that because it was so totally different than how we originally met him. These two do not have sweet and gentle sex, nope, it’s always athletic and hardcore. And it’s always hot! So hell yeah I recommend this book. It is so totally different than book one, but that turned out to be a good thing. Now, I can’t wait to see where it goes from here; I have not a clue who the next book will be about, but it doesn’t really matter. I will be one of the first in line to read it.
