When architect Brian Townsend meets a man dressed as Zorro at a Halloween party, it seems like a chance hookup. There’s no denying Brian’s immediate attraction, but it takes more effort than he thought it would just to find out the man’s name.
NYPD homicide detective Tristan Blake comes from old money, which he loathes. An idealistic streak burns within him to do a job that serves a purpose. A former lover scorned him at a time he was most vulnerable, after the death of friend, and now Tristan is slow to trust what appears to a developing relationship between him and Brian.
Beer tasting, a broken window, a fall down a flight of stairs, a grenade, and a violent attack … what do these all have in common? Each one brings Tristan an inch closer to trusting Brian with his heart.
Another excellent hurt/healing/comfort read from one of my favorite authors, A.R. Moler. This series revolves around Brian, a kind and gentle architect living in New York and Tristan, a homicide detective who has been hardened not only by the death and destruction he sees every day on the job but by a cruel, thoughtless ex-boyfriend and malicious, hurtful family members. He has many, many trust issues and the series of stories shows how Brian and Tristan work on building trust for Tristan, which is his biggest hurdle to overcome.
I loved the story, I loved the characters, I loved the situations and the romance and the incredible sex and this series is an easy 5 stars for me.
Recommended for M/M romance fans who like some nice healing/comfort.
