The Distance Between Us, Book 5
Still finding his footing after a long-overdue divorce, Marcus is looking forward to some mind-numbing drinking while ogling the grooms at Chris and Julien’s wedding. He never expected his attention to be diverted by the gorgeous best man.
One of Julien’s French Foreign Legion buddies, Timur doesn’t speak much English, but language is no barrier to Marcus understanding exactly what the huge Tartar wants—a one-night stand.
Except that one night turns into two, three, then more, which puts Marcus on edge. After Timur is done house-sitting for the honeymooning couple, he’s headed back to the Legion for another five years. Like it or not, once Timur gets on that plane, the fling is over.
Unfortunately, Marcus forgot to tell his heart not to fall in love. And this time, if history repeats and he makes another wrong decision, he may never see his tattooed Legionnaire lover again.
Warning: Contains a soldier who makes up for his lack of English by using his hands to read his lover’s body; a chef-turned-bartender who no longer believes in love; a length of paracord that probably wasn’t meant to be used this way; and a couple of newlyweds who are game for some four-way play.
This was my favourite book in the series which was kind of a relief, since the last one fell flat for me . Honestly, I liked Julien and Chris better in this book than in their own.
Marcus works at Wild’s, he’s divorced and meets Timur in Chris and Julien’s wedding. The story is told from his POV. He’s a nice character, real and likeable.
Timur…oh God Timur. To me he was an amazing character, intriguing and full of contradictions. Tough and built like a brick shithouse yet gentle and attentive.
Laid back but ready to protect Marcus in a heartbeat.
The language barrier, to me wasn’t a barrier at all. It made Timur even more adorable.
Towards the end there is, as the blurb promises, a foursome between Chris-Julien and Timur-Marcus. Now, in my opinion, foursomes are a nice and sexy addition or a disaster that comes out of nowhere to turn the book into porn. This, fortunately, belongs in the first category. It was discussed beforehand between the characters, there was no jealousy and it led to Marcus’ realisation of his love for Timur .
