Bad boy and former NFL running back Patrick Guinness is tired of meaningless sex. Ever since his scorching hot one-night stand three years ago, no one has interested him. So when Max Segreti wanders into his mechanic shop—and his life again—Patrick can’t stop thinking about the totally-out-of-his-league law grad and the possibility of getting him out of his system once and for all…
Max Segreti has spent his entire life doing what his father wants. But when he runs into the hotter-than-hell player he’s never been able to forget, he’s not thinking about studying for the bar. A distraction is the last thing he needs, but after an encounter leaves him wanting more, Max embraces the chaos that Patrick brings…even as he knows it can’t last. They’re too different to ever have a future together.

What a great read about two men who come from different backgrounds and have different responsibilities but in the end the only that truly matters is that they love each other.

Max met Patrick the first time in college. Patrick was a football player on the fast track to the NFL and Max was in pre law school. The night they shared together was magical to both men but they knew it could not go anywhere because of their paths in life. So both men carried the amazing memory of the night with them through the years.

The next time they meet again is after Max has finished law school and Patrick is not longer in the NFL but instead is running his family tire business and now raising his younger brother since his father passed away.

These two men are so very different from each other as far as responsibilities goes. Max is trying and never quit able to earn his fathers respect but he has not given up on this. Even though his father does not respect the fact that he is gay he tries to abide by his fathers rules and keep his relationships quite so it does not affect the family as his father has put it. Plus Max still has to pass the law bar to be a full time lawyer. Just because his family has money that does not mean that is the most important thing in Max’s life. He wants what everyone wants, a loving relationship with someone who will love him as much as he loves them no matter their stays in life.

Patrick is struggling to keep the family business I. The black but does not hesitate to use that business as collateral when he younger brother gets into trouble and needs his help. Patrick will do whatever is necessary to try and keep Liam safe and help him in any way possible.

The last thing Patrick ever expected to do was fall for Max once again but Patrick has a real hard time getting over the fact that Max has so much more money then he does.

Can Patrick get over his hang ups or will he let it ruin what could possibly be the best thing to ever happen to him?

This book was such a wonderful read. It was not all hearts and kisses, but instead had real issues that had to be dealt with in order to be with the man that gave so much more then money, love. Jessica Lee did an amazing job on this book and I hope that maybe we will see these two men in another book later on. I am hoping we will get a book with Liam’s story because I think that would be a just as amazing book.

Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
