Daniel Brown is a man of routine. You might even call him a control freak. So when the new Director of Marketing, Ryan Cole, starts shaking up Daniel’s routine, Daniel doesn’t know how to react. He finds Ryan intriguing, infuriating and oh so attractive, but he doesn’t mix business with pleasure. As their games start to grow kinkier, dare Daniel give in to his desire to let Ryan top him?

I was only mildly impressed with this book.

Honestly I did not feel like there was much storyline here but I am hoping since it is only book one that more of the story will follow in the next book.

Daniel is beyond what I would call OCD. He has everything in his life planned out including how long it takes him to walk around one side of the desk or the other side of the desk. He is one that doesn’t stray from his routine and I am being honest from what I read in this book I do not think he has many friends and his co workers do not like him much because he follows everything to the “T”. Which is a good thing for him because of his position in the company.

Ryan is one of Daniel’s co workers but they have not really had anything to do with each other until Ryan takes it upon himself to test Daniels self control. I say test because I believe that placing the doughnut on Daniels desk each morning to see if he will give in and eat it or if he will have self control over what he knows Daniel really wants, is a test. I think he does it to see if they are compatible like Ryan believed that they are.

Of course Daniel does not eat the doughnut and continues to either give it away or throw it away each morning. This really excites Ryan to no end and I believe that Daniel passed whatever test it is Daniel was placing him in without Daniel even being aware of it.

Ryan decides to take it to the next level and test Daniels self control in a more private setting and invites Daniel to his home for supper.once accepted and there that is when the fun begins. The question is does Daniel meet or exceed Ryan’s expectations or does Daniel fail miserably?

This book is more based around being erotic in my opinion then it is based around having a storyline. I guess the story line could possibly be in the in the name of the book only since it is called Delayed Gratification. I say this because honestly that is the full basis of this book and really nothing else. Like I said the story may play out in another book in the series but that is to be seen. I will read the next book when it is available to see if this is the case but if not then I will probably not continue past that because my personal likings is based more towards something I read having a story along with the erotic parts of the books. But that is just my opinion and will not be the opinion of others. Don’t get me wrong this was a decent read but I just have different opinions on what my personal favorites are. So do not let my opinion discourage you from reading This book.

Galley copy of Delayed Gratification (Daniel and Ryan #1) provided by NineStar Press in exchange of an honest review.

This is the beginning of a series. Though it was a decent read, it was not th type of book that I prefer. I like a book that has a storyline behind it but I did not feel this book had that. Hoping book two will have more of a storyline then this one did. But do not let my opinion suede you from reading because it may be what you like to read.

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.
