Blurb: A noble goal, and a stupid risk, but will it pay off?
The world of the future is starkly divided. Those with the money to afford it can become Alphas, people with superhuman IQ. The rest? Mundanes, unable to get a job beyond being a mechanic or working in food service, if they can get work at all.
But Nick, a mundane, disagrees with the system, and so does his dangerous friend Riki. Their dream is to build their own machine to raise IQ and give people the equal opportunity they deserve. The penalty for this, however, is death, and it must be done in secret.
Unfortunately, Nick is new to crime, and he meets a handsome man in a bar after a hard day at work. When he finds out Julian is an Alpha, he’s nervous, but continues with the flirtation, resulting in a hot couple of nights. When he finds out that Julian is an investigator, he realizes he has put his dream at risk.
A noble goal, and a stupid risk, but will it pay off?

Review: Nick is putting everything on the line to make his dream come true and when he meets Julian he thinks maybe he can have the best of both worlds, until that is…Riki finds out.
This is a really good story-line and plot that makes you wish it was longer. I thought the connection that Nick and Julian had was great and Julian seemed to be a really nice guy. Nick wants everyone to be on a more even setting rather than just the rich having the best of the world. Nick’s fear of being discovered was really well done and I thought Julian’s story was really sad and gave us a point of view of an Alpha.
The characters are well portrayed and I quite liked Riki as he’s got quite a dangerous edge to him. I wish there was more interaction between Julian and Nick as they did make a great couple and I really hope that there will be a sequel as this was a really good story and it has so much potential to be so much more as this has only whetted my appetite to find out more about the Alpha’s and the Mundanes.
So who do I recommend this to? Well those who love hot sex, hot men, futuristic and a story-line that makes you want more.
