D is tired of playing games.
Dante “D” Vargas is home in Miami, to stay. He has a job he likes as the new head of bonds and bounty for Mack’s Security and after six years of making a mess with Trevor Mackentire, he’s ready—he thinks they’re both ready—for them to stop playing around and figure out if what they have is real. But Trevor is his boss’s son and his best friend’s younger brother so it’s not as easy as taking what he wants.
Especially when he also has to convince Trevor he’s over being afraid of his feelings and not everything is what it seems.
Trevor wants the D(ante).
Finally healthy and whole again after the effects of a major car accident, Trevor’s tired of being treated like a child by everyone he loves. He’s been handling his own for a long time. But he’s lonely. Trevor knows he shouldn’t keep setting himself up to be hurt by D’s hot-and-cold routine, but he’s cared for the man forever, and lusted for him even longer.
Yes, they set each other on fire, but old fears, old wounds, and being stuck in a game of push and pull makes it feel impossible to get it together. Maybe they should just well enough alone.
It’d be easier if every meeting, every taste didn’t leave them wanting more.
NOTE: Go see the author’s post on FB, regarding the editing isssues.
You know how I always say that I love Kade Boehme’s quiet, slow, sexy stories? Well, turns out he’s pretty good at hard, fast, and dirty as well! WANT is hawt y’all!
“From the time I met him when I was sixteen, to the time we fell into bed when I was nineteen, to when he flew away last year, want colored every moment with D, every memory I had of him.”
The story worked for me on many levels:
~I loved the push and pull in the first half of the book. Yes, I wanted to smack their heads together, and, yes, I pleaded with them to talk already! BUT the tension and the fact that they couldn’t keep their hands off each other, was right up my alley.
“I love that you want me so much we can’t stop ourselves, sometimes…”
~Don’t let the dirty sex fool you. There are some serious feelz here.
~I LOVED the second half of the book, after Trevor and Dante finally talked. They were all in, and the mature way they chose to handle their relationship was everything. For them, not everybody else.
~The very powerful scene at 80%. If I didn’t love D already, I would have loved him right there and then.
~The way they handled Trevor’s family.
~Special mention for the sex. Because I have to. It was filthy…
Make sure you ‘re not in public. There is sex in an elevator. On a Camaro. In the Camaro. In a public bathroom. And more… But what I loved the most about it, was how the dynamics changed. It was like a power play, with tons of emotion.
The epilogue is quiet and solid and perfect. Trevor and Dante were meant for each other, and their chemistry came alive through the pages.
“Nothing less than making you mine would have ever been enough.”
