Review by Jen Skewes

I was so excited for this book.  We first met Jake and Greg in the first book Something There In Between.  While reading that boo I suspected that there may be more between them but until the very end I wasn't quite sure.  I loved them in the first book and could not wait to get their story.  What I loved about this book it the way it started, which is exactly where we left these two very sexy and very alpha males.  But the part I loved was that the moment that surprised us all at the end surprised them just as much.

Greg has been in love with his best friend for quite some time.  But he has never acted on his feelings because Jake, well he loves women.  Or at least he thinks he does.  But that one kiss that night while drunk has not left either their minds.  Jake and Gregg are both broken in their own way and between their pasts, their similarities, their personalities they just click.  They get each other in so many ways. Jake is still trying to deal with his horrific past and because of this he is slowly going down this very dark hole.  And it isn't until fully hits rock bottom that he finally sees what his life has become.  With Greg by his side he picks himself up but it's not only his life and dealing with his past that concerns him.  It's these feelings for his best friend that he never knew were there.  It's the connection that they have that is beyond friends, the attraction he suddenly feels when he is near him.  It's a risk to be with each other given their line of work.  Will it be worth it?

The one thing that I always love about a M/M romance is when you feel the connection between the two characters.  I love watching one or both people discover their feelings of the other person, knowing how foreign they are never having been with another man before.  When you can feel the emotions, the love and the passion and feel that it is more than just a sexual connection, for me that is the perfect M/M romance.  And Ms. Ferguson delivered it all.  I loved Greg and Jake together.  They were best friends as close as two friends can be but when they stated to explore what was between them you really felt the love and connection.  They were there for each other when they needed it the most, to love and comfort each other.  I loved everything about this story.  The writing is fantastic and flowed perfectly.  It was hot and sexy and just what I love in a M/M love story. I look forward to reading more from this author.


I hear a clatter, pulling me out of my own head, as Jake tries to yank the dusty cloth off the stove. That’s enough of that shit. I don’t know if the stove is still connected to the gas and I don’t feel like dying in a giant fireball tonight.

Marching up to Jake, I grab his shoulders and try to steer him toward the back door, but he isn’t having it. Spinning around, he puts us chest to chest. I swallow the sudden lump in my throat. Does he know? Of course he doesn’t.

The tension between us has been rising to a boiling point. Our chemistry is so much deeper than just friendship. Jake’s walls come down when he drinks, but I have never dared to hope for a moment like this.

“There isn’t any food,”Jake pouts, his baby face making him look like an adorable child—a child I want to smack and kiss, in no particular order. I’m tired too and ready to go home. But I know Jake won’t drop his hunt for food. We’ve been down this road before.

I sigh in defeat. “I’ll take you to Waffle House,”I whisper. I’ll push aside my tiredness for Jake. I would do almost anything for him. This moment feels intimate, being in the dark alone with him in my arms. It’s pretty much every dream I’ve ever had come true.

“Greg…”Jake’s voice trails off. I can just barely see in the dim light, but it looks like his eyes are focused on my lips.

“Fuck, don’t look at me like that.”It’s only a half-hearted protest. More of me wants this than not. And that’s the problem.

Jake doesn’t speak. He just leans forward and then, after a brief hesitation, pushes his lips to mine.

My entire body stiffens, afraid to move. God I hope this isn’t some drunken mistake on his part. My hands lock into their position resting on his shoulders. I’m so nervous I’ll spook him. I know his history, probably better than most. I don’t know if he realizes what he’s doing. I know I’m a bastard for not pushing him away, and despite all these thoughts, about ninety percent of the blood in my body is rushing south.

Jake ignores the fact that I’ve frozen on my feet. Slanting his head, his tongue teases my bottom lip, asking me to open up.

And I do. Oh my God, I do.

He wraps his arms around the back of my neck, pulling us even closer. I can feel I’m not the only one aroused by this, his erection pushing against mine through our dress pants. He moans when he feels my hard-on pushing back, and that’s all I need to thaw. I move my left hand up to the back of his head and take control of the kiss. I don’t even think about it; I lower my right hand to rub him through his pants. Despite the material between us, I can feel how hard he is. I feel the heat coming off of him. He moans long and low into my mouth, thrusting himself into my hand.

I curse as I manage to undo his button and fly with one hand, mentally high-fiving myself for the coordination, and reach past the layers of fabric to grip him. He’s just as big as I thought he would be. Smooth skin over something hard enough to hammer nails. I run my hand from his base to tip. I had already known from plenty of times in the men’s room together that he was uncut, but feeling it like this makes me want to do so many dangerous things to him. I wonder how he would feel about me nibbling on…

A sudden crash scares the shit out of us. I rip my mouth from Jake’s and we both turn our heads to our left at the same time.

Ron is standing in the doorway. Despite the shitty lighting, I can see his heaving chest. His eyes are wide and he's holding his gun.

This is not good. This is so not fucking good.
