When someone’s image is different from the way that person sees themselves, that difference can cause pain on both sides of the perception. Chase, James’s best friend from book one in the series, is in just such a situation in regards to Rhys, who was James’s bodyguard during the stalking. Normally the difference of opinion would not matter, but everyone else seems to think Chase and Rhys belong together, and they keep pushing Chase to at least go on a date with Rhys. Their resulting story is filled with misunderstandings, the pain of dealing with Chase’s past, and lots of conflict and external threat. It was great to see James and Seth again, as well as their other friends – still as loving, chaotic, and quirky as ever.

Chase looks, usually dresses, and mostly behaves like a party-boy twink. While he isn’t like that at all, he enjoys the flirting and the clubbing, but has never had a one-night stand in his life, He takes his relationships seriously, but hasn’t had much luck so far. And with Rhys calling him names when they first meet, Chase is not inclined to give the man the time of day after that, no matter how attractive he may be or how much everyone else insists Rhys is a great guy. But when Chase starts to work for Rhys’s PI business (James’s brilliant idea), they are forced to deal with each other, and Chase slowly begins to thaw. It’s not easy for him, considering how much he’s been hurt before and what other dark secrets he carries from his teenage days, but Chase knows he’ll have to deal with all of that at some point, and Rhys is too attractive to keep turning down.

Rhys is a former Marine and now runs a bodyguard/PI business with his best friend. Rhys had been recently emotionally hurt when he lashed out at Chase the first time they met, and initially does everything to keep the man at a distance. But then James decides Chase is the best person to help Rhys with the tech issues he has, so Rhys swallows his pride and asks Chase to work with him. He quickly learns that Chase is very different from what he assumed, and decides to pursue a relationship. It’s a good thing he is stubborn and persistent because Chase is not an easy man to get to know!

If you like stories about emotionally damaged men who have built walls around their hearts to protect themselves from being hurt ever again, if you’re interested in a “battle of the wills” as well as an “opening of the hearts” kind of story, and if you’re looking for a read that shows what can happen when preconceived perceptions are defied, is emotionally touching, and contains some light but very hot BDSM, then you will probably like this novel.
