Blurb: Danny Sims is in over his head, torn between his abusive lover, Joshua, and Jay Holtsclaw, the bartender up the street, who offers Danny the one thing he never gets at home: understanding.
When Joshua threatens to get rid of Danny’s terrier, Danny knows he has to act fast. Afraid of what Joshua will do to the dog, and afraid of what Joshua will do to him if he tries to leave, Danny does the only thing he can do.
But Danny isn’t a complete fool. He has enough sense to run into the arms of the man who actually cares for him—the man he’s beginning to trust.
Just as their lives together are starting to fall into place, Danny and Jay learn how vengeful Joshua can be.
And how dangerous.
Review: I came across this author just a few months ago, but from the way his stories unfold, I knew that I would forever read them. They are not just finding love type of stories but always have a tale inside of it. Such as this story does.
Danny was a twenty-one year old young man who was living in hell. His older boyfriend was basically a piece of crap. He dictates what Danny is to wear, what he is to eat, and beats the shit out of him for whatever reason he can come up with. Danny just doesn’t know how to get away. He was barely making money, his car was crap and he had nowhere to go. That is until after one beating, Danny goes to the Club House.
Jay owns the Club House, the only gay bar around. He is a sweet and peaceful man with a big heart. He has noticed Danny and Danny’s boyfriend from time to time. He lost his own love over a year ago and was slowly healing. Now he realizes Danny is in trouble.
The only thing I did not like in this story was Ernie’s death. He was one of my favorites. Beautiful and loving characters, along with total asshats, frisky pets and one damn hero rattlesnake is just a bit of what you get with this book. There is also excitement, adventure, danger, an insane asshat, and some hot sex is just a bit more. Things really heat up when they find out just how dangerous Josh really is.
This story has quite a bit of different emotion’s flowing through it, but John has balanced them perfectly. I also love the way Josh got his. Perfection in the whole thing. This was a hell of a story and a blast to read. I can’t wait to get the Josh Inman’s next book.
I had a lot of fun with it and will guarantee you will too.
