Blurb: Even with Rhys holding the knife at Kullian’s throat drawing blood, he knew he had no control over the Fey Baron. Kullian knew it too. However, the dangerous dance was sexy as hell. But who would come out on top?

Rhys has spent his entire life in underground Winderport. He knew there was a whole other world above his “sky” but he wasn’t interested–until the day, he chased a killer to that mystical upper world and saw Kullian, all six-foot something of perfection. So what if the man was a notorious and powerful Fey Baron? Rhys wasn’t a typical law-abiding citizen himself. The very fact the man was dangerous made him that much more attractive and had Rhys wanting things he’d never even considered before.

But an injury causes Rhys to lose his memory and his only clues to his identity are his gun and a camera with pictures of Kullian’s silver eyes looking right into the lens. However, Rhys does have one memory–he was after a murderer and somehow Kullian is involved. It’s a race against time because Rhys needs to find his memory and this mysterious killer before it’s too late. Could it be he might just find love as well?

Review: Rhys lives in underground Winderport with his gang Fury. They all know that there is a world above them that they have heard stories about, but never do they ever expect to leave the underground. When one of his gang, Joey, is murdered, Rhys is on the trail of the killer all the way up to above Winderport, where the killer has a meeting with a mysterious man. But Rhys has an accident and forgets everything. All he has to go on is a flash of memory of fat fingers and some pictures of a sexy man. When he meets Kullian, he can’t fight the attraction but he has to regain his memories, as he knows there is something important he has to do. 

This is a great story set some time in the future where the underground tunnels has its own civilization and the above world is run by powerful men. Rhys is the leader of his gang, a small group of guys who are like family, but now one of their own has been murdered and Rhys is determined to make the killer pay. Kullian is a Fey Baron, a self-made powerful man, and somebody has stolen something that should never fall into anyone’s hands and he wants it back. The two men cross paths and their worlds collide but can their attraction really breach the divide of above and underground Winderport? 

Rhys and Kullian are both great characters who come together by chance, Rhys is looking for the murderer of his friend, and Kullian wants back what was stolen. Their paths cross and their reaction to each other is instant, but Rhys’ memory loss is hampering him and after an amazing night with Kullian he attempts to go on the hunt again. While the story is playing out above ground, we also see what is happening underground with Rhys’ gang and their desperation to find Rhys but they also have to deal with a rival gang boss who has a grudge against Rhys. The gang characters Teneff, Pylei, Nerin, Westvil and Guneal are wonderfully written and add a lot to the story, enriching the storyline and helping to connect the threads together.          

I recommend this to those who love futuristic stories, great characters, a well woven plot, a great storyline with danger, twists and tense situations, a fast developing relationship, hot sex and a great ending.
