It takes a strong man to be this fabulous.
Crescencio “Chenco” Ortiz pulled himself up by his garter straps after his father’s will yanked the financial rug from under his spank-me pumps. He doesn’t need anyone, yet when Steve Vance steps into his life, the prospect of having a sexy leather daddy on tap begins to take on a certain appeal.
There’s a hitch when he learns Steve is friends with Mitch Tedsoe—the half-brother Chenco never knew except through his father’s twisted lies. Despite his reservations, soon Chenco is living his dreams, including a performing gig in Vegas. Now if only he could get Steve to see him as more than just a boy in need of saving.
Steve’s attraction to Chenco is overshadowed by too many demons, ones he knows his would-be lover is too young to slay. Yet as he gets to know the bright, determined young man whose drag act redefines fierce, Steve’s inner sadist trembles with need. He begins to realize Chenco’s relentless tough love might be the only thing that will finally set him free.

Wow! This one has a lot going on but it is so worth reading. Chenco amazes me with his strength. He and Caramela are two sides of the same coin. It impressed me that Steve acknowledges Caramela as her own identity. Of course, the guys from the previous books are there and together we get to see that they really are a family. They stand together; loving and supporting one another no matter what. Gordy creeped me out and left me infinitely sad, but Chenco made me cheer with how strong he is for Steve. This one is scorching hot with BDSM; heavy on the S/M. Highly recommended author and series Adult read
Loved it! This book just steamrolled through my day. I was delighted to have the boys back again (Sam, Mitch, Ethan, and Randy......ohhhh Randy, can't get enough of him). Now we get to meet Chenco and Steve, languishing in Texas. It's a fun ride from Texas to Vegas (especially in the truck). Chenco has some self doubt to overcome, and Steve has a serious monster of guilt riding him by the name of Gordy. Gordy had a huge role offstage in this book, which I didn't quite understand. This was the only reason I didn't give the book a 5 star rating. Aside from seeing the boys again, I loved all the kink that I hadn't read before: watersports and needle play (I googled needle play and, well, I had no idea that this was a thing. At all.) This edition 2017 has the extended version of the water scene that was censored by the previous publisher, Samhain. Heidi manages to turn these kinks into trust and comfort and love. It's amazing how she does this. I also loved the drag aspect to this book--I've a thing for queens. One thing that I did miss and was hoping for was more sexy times for all involved (or with all involved!). The sex and the scenes were steamy and so well crafted that I ached for more of them. This is one of my favorite series and if you haven't gotten a chance yet, check out the audio version by Iggy Toma, who does all of Heidi's books. The man is a voice god! I truly hope there is another book coming in this series.
I really enjoyed this book - not my favorite MC's of the series but still really hot, sexy and interesting in their own way. Well worth reading, plus the other MC's all play really prominent roles in this story.
