Greyson Cole needs to get out of Raleigh.
Everywhere he turns, he sees people falling in love, getting married and starting families. It’s enough to make a grown man want to rip out his own hair. And for a cynic like Grey, one more employee getting engaged signals the need for a long overdue vacation. Grey owns a cabin in the mountains he has never even used, and he figures that’s just the ticket out of this nightmare of happily paired-up couples.

Grey doesn’t expect to be greeted by a belligerent, half-naked man the minute he opens his cabin door.

Sirus Wilder has known Grey’s twin sister for years, and she has given him permission to stay in the cabin while his residence across the lake is under repair. Sirus has never met Greyson Cole before, but he is thankful when the man lets him share the cabin for a few days. There is plenty enough room for them each to keep to themselves. Sirus has had his heart broken and isn’t interested in hook-up. let alone something more.

Even so, Grey is, hands-down, one of the sexiest men Sirus has ever seen. Too bad he’s an arrogant ass and his eyes are so damn cold. Every once in a while, though, Sirus thinks he sees a hint of fiery passion in the controlled man sleeping one room away.

For Grey, one look at the roughly handsome Sirus puts Grey’s celibacy pact in serious jeopardy. One problem: Grey doesn’t believe in love, has even less patience for relationships, and he refuses to get mixed up in another messy romantic partnership that can only end badly.

Two weeks. Two hand men. Both running like hell from love.
Look out. Something’s gotta give.

Note: this story contains male/male acts of sex and loving. Anal, oral, rimming.

You know what I don’t get...? And it’s nothing that important, or really, even, stops this story from being good, just something that I have noticed of late and now, I’m here, snapping.
Why do people put in Prologues when they are just chapter one? They don’t give any more back story then a first chapter does. It hasn’t got...it’s just....the first chapter.
And I get it if it’s the start of the book and then there’s that break in time that shows this first part had meaning, but instead it just....goes straight into chap 2 when it’s says chap 1.
Though maybe I just don’t understand what a ‘prologue’ really is, I’m still learning all this crap now when I should have at school but then that’s a learning difficulty thing playing.
This book has one of those (to me) wrong starts.
...though saying all this, it’s got pretty much the story line in the blurb!!! Which is another thing that annoys me. Why do they need so much info in the blurb...? Can’t they sell this story in two lines?

Play two this is one of the books that I would call Erotica when it’s only been placed as a romance, odd, but hey, what blows there boat and what’s going to push into my next point and into the actual review....

Man there is a lot of sex in this book, seriously, you don’t want page after page of the ins and outs of male/male sex then this isn’t the book for you.
But enough about that.

The context of the book was really simple, played over mostly a week, it’s about two man who aren’t looking for love, mostly because it’s bitten them in the ass, one more so than the other.
Saying this Grey has a little problem opening up to people.
And then he meets Sirus and... well, it’s a romance, isn’t it, and what happens in romances....?
There all fucked up and then they meet the love of their lives and everything coming crashing down, and like anything it’s a crash and burn type of tumble.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this story, and even though it seemed all about a dick in someone’s ass, it was nice and simple storyline that’s great to read when you don’t really have a head for something deep.
You can follow this story without having all your brain cells running through the pages, and still enjoy it.
