All Adam Kern was looking for when his best friend dragged him to the club Harte was some good dancing and a little flirting to distract him from his troubles. He never anticipated meeting the club owner, Jesse Harte, and having a whole new world of experiences laid open before him. On an impulse, Adam follows Jesse to the upper, kinkier floors of the club where an informative tour ends in a steamy scene that both men are looking forward to repeating. The attraction between the two is scorching and over the next few weeks their adventures into kinky sex are nothing short of daring.

Adam loves the thrill of sex with Jesse but soon a gnawing fear sows doubt into his mind about the possibility of a relationship with the other man. Though he loves every moment he spends with Jesse, he fears what these sexual explorations may mean for him. Jesse is successful, an entrepreneur and a well-known Dominant in the BDSM community but Adam cannot see himself as a submissive. What sort of future could they have if he is unable to give his lover what he needs?

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Erotica: It is no secret that I hated the first book. What the author called kinky, I thought it was actually demeaning for Michael, so I wasn’t really looking forward to this second story. Another repeat of that awfulness would have buried this saga and pretty likely the rest of this author’s book into the “never touch” place of my shelves. But this second book shows a much more promising style. The characters are better. The romance is way better. The kinky stuff is more sensible and actually appealing instead of nauseating. Overall, it is a nice short story to keep you entertained for a little bit. Nothing out of the extraordinary, but mostly correct. I will certainly check the third book once it gets the new edition.

Angry: Sadly, the author kept reminding me why I hated the first book so much. Maybe it is my own obsession, but it seems that Dillon has even more story time than even Jesse in Shoot the Moon. I know that is not true, but that character rubbed me the wrong way and I can’t stand his presence no matter how short. He is still micromanaging Michael’s everystep. That has nothing to do with any kind of kinky sex…

Am I the only one who thinks someone mixed the covers? The cover of the first book makes much more sense in the second book (it clearly displays Jesse) and the guy of this second cover would fit Dillon’s description way better.
