Blurb: Cameron Jacobs is an open book. He considers himself a common waiter with normal friends, boring hobbies, harmless dogs, and nothing even resembling a secret… except a crush on a tall, dark, devastatingly handsome man who dines alone at his restaurant on Tuesday nights. All it takes is one passionate night with Julian Cross to turn Cameron’s world on its head.
Julian’s love and devotion are all Cameron could have hoped for and more. But when his ordinary life meets and clashes with Julian’s extraordinary lifestyle, Cameron discovers that trust and fear can go hand in hand, and love is just a step away from danger.
Review: I really enjoyed this one. The story was intriguing enough to keep me interested the entire book. There were a couple of plot twists that you might have been able to guess at, but were still mostly surprising because you just weren’t sure which direction the authors were going to take you.
I really liked Cameron’s character. Mostly just an average guy, but with enough of a personality to not be boring. I enjoyed the fact that he had very reasonable doubts, but still managed to make rational decisions despite those doubts. It made him that much more real.
Julian stays most of a mystery even to the end of the story. While there is an awful lot that the reader can infer as well as the little bits here and there that are revealed, we really never quite get to know him. I was a little torn about that. I really enjoyed it, but it was a bit frustrating as well. That was part of why the book stayed interesting throughout.
It was definitely a good read. I will be watching for other books by this pairing of authors as well as any individual works they may have done.
