Jamie Nolan is a young cop on his first undercover assignment, sent to investigate Dmitri Teplov, a suspected major player in the Russian mafia. Jamie knows better than to get involved with the gorgeous nightclub owner. But right from the start, the spark of attraction between the two of them is undeniable.

Everything about Dmitri is just so unexpected. He’s sweet and shy, and has a nerdy side that Jamie finds irresistible. Can this man really be a criminal?

No matter if Dmitri is guilty or innocent, Jamie’s big Irish Catholic family of cops and his police captain are never going to accept this relationship. Dmitri’s dangerous and manipulative gangster uncle is also none too thrilled that these two are together, and wants Jamie out of the picture. On top of that, Jamie’s still reeling from a recent breakup, and Dmitri is unavailable anyway. Isn’t he?

No way should this thing between them be happening. Getting involved with Dmitri Teplov was never part of the plan. But sometimes, the best plan is the one you make up as you go along.

This book is an erotic gay romance. It contains explicit language, a touch of kink, and lots of steamy sex between two hot guys.

It takes a really strong writer to make me not only overlook characters falling in love too quickly, but totally believe it. Alexa Land just joined the ranks of a select few authors that can make me believe in this total insta-love romance.

Twenty-three year old Jamie Nolan is given his first undercover assignment investigating twenty-six year old night club owner, and suspected mafia boss, Dmitri Teplov. From their first interactions it’s love at first sight for both men.


I loved the characters and the supporting cast, especially loving how well the women are portrayed in the story. Sure, the plot’s way OTT and the insta-love is crazy fast, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Especially the smoking hot super sexy sex scenes. Rowr!


Bottom Line: Great, lovable characters, wonderful humor, and hot sexy times. I giggled, I eye-rolled, I sighed and I enjoyed. Recommended!

I am an unapologetic book addict/lover. I'm happiest when reading and I spend most of my time with my Kindle, which is never far from my hand. I love to be told a good story! I mostly read fiction: Romance, Erotica, Young Adult, New Adult, Paranormal (shifters? Yes, please!), a little BDSM when I'm in the mood, and I love a good ménage story. I DEFINITELY PREFER A HFN/HEA! My biggest no-no's are cheating, miscommunication / misunderstanding plots, unnecessary angst, and cliffhangers.
