Controlled Asher didn’t expect to fall for free-spirited Daniel, but they’ll find what they desperately need in one another.

Police captain Asher Penaz’s staunch professionalism bleeds into his home life, down to his neatly pressed attire and spartan apartment. He enjoys being in charge and in control, so his sudden and powerful attraction to the lighthearted, free-spirited Daniel Tover throws him for a loop. In his entire life, Daniel has never gotten what he needs, so he moves to the next place, the next job, the next attempt to find something worth staying for, always landing at the top of his game, but never feeling like he belongs.

The chemistry between Asher and Daniel sizzles, but with all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. If Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need.

DNF @ 57%

Nope. I tried. I mean – it’s CC. I put CC glasses on (suspend reality and enjoy the fluff), and just GO! But there are not thick enough glasses for this. Asher is the worst MC ever. He’s the biggest asshole, most selfish person in general. And I thought that BEFORE the following scene….

And I just hit the part where he arrives home, is furious that Daniel isn’t home too (where he should be because where else would Daniel be but home when he gets home from work). Did I teleport back to 1950, and did Daniel turn into a housewife who’s allowed no opinion or freedom? When Asher learns Daniel is at a male neighbor’s house, he grabs Daniel, pins him to the dresser with his arm twisted behind his back with his wrist gripped hard enough to leave a bruise. Daniel’s immediate response: “Ash? Are you okay? What’s wrong?”

Nope. Done.

I’m sorry because I love this author and will continue to read her books. But I can’t recommend this one. My favorite: Where He Ends and I Begin. Nate and Jake are to die for!
