Blurb: When Cal gives his best friend, Jin, a thank you gift, the magical pendant appears more curse than blessing. The moment the jade pendant touches Jin’s skin, he ends up possessed by an insane dragon spirit.
Cal has loved Jin forever, but since Jin is straight, Cal accepts it as one-sided love, never to be fulfilled. Or at least that was what he thought until Jin is taken over by Jade.
Now Cal will do anything, even offer his body and accept a twisted form of his most desperate desire. But is it all to keep the jade dragon from using Jin’s body to rampage through the city or the chance to satisfy his darker desires?

Review: Cal and his brother Tory buy a trinket for Jin as a thank you for all he has done for them. But, when the pendent touches his skin something happens that leaves Cal reeling and having to strike a bargain if he is to save himself, his brother and Jin from the spirit in the Jade pendent.
Woohoo. What a spicy little bite sized piece this is. Cal has wanted Jin for years, but has always believed him to be straight. he respects that and keeps his love to himself, but when Jin is possessed by a spirit that wants to rampage, then he does the only thing he can think of, he strikes a bargain giving himself to the Jade dragon as long as it gives Jin the daylight hours.
Okay, this is hot, and sexy, and scorching with some rough sex which is very passionate. There isn’t much of a storyline other than a Jade dragon spirit taking over the body of Jin and Cal offering a bargain and lots of hot sex, but it is great for such a little short story. The ending will have you spitting nails because it is abrupt and leaves you hanging, but I am happy to tell you that there is a second book The Jade Triangle which picks up where this one leaves off.
So I recommend this to those who love fantasy, paranormal, hot primal sex, an awkward ending and a promise of a second book.
