We met them in Mission: X— the adorable, bouncing bottom-boy and his big, bad Daddy. A romance that produces such a delicious couple is bound to be a scorcher. This is their story.
For years, Charlie kept a protective, but professional, watch over Wren. The sweet, surprisingly unspoiled, rich-kid just seemed to stumble unwittingly into trouble. But one day, called to retrieve a very drunk Wren from a college party, Charlie got far more than he bargained for when Wren— a suddenly very grown up Wren— revealed his surprising crush and his far too tempting body.
Wren lost his best friend, the only person he truly trusted, in one stupid, drunken moment of weakness. He was determined, though. He knew he hadn’t imagined Charlie’s physical response when he’d been pressed against him. It was just a matter of figuring out how to convince the older, bigger, stronger man— who tripped every single one of Wren’s triggers— that he could be everything Charlie needed.
But a year later, Wren is losing faith, and he’s beginning to spin out of control. Charlie is rapidly losing sight of the logical list of reasons he should stay away. Wren is exhibiting the needy kind of behavior that demands consequences. The Dominant in Charlie is becoming louder and more demanding by the day. A collision is inevitable. A hot, fiery explosion that will shatter everything on impact. But with a little help and a lot of luck, maybe— just maybe— they’ll walk away more whole than they’ve ever been.
Note: This is a stand-alone prequel to Mission: X and, as such, Mission: X does not need to be read first.
My Review: Color me surprised!!! I really liked this book and it is very surprising because it had BDSM elements. I don’t usually read this type of book, because I feel like I don’t know how to connect and it doesn’t do a damn thing for me usually. This book had quite a few tender moments and it really enhanced the plot in my opinion and really revved my engine. My only complaint was that the book was just too short and it left me wanting for more. Wren was flighty, flirty and promiscuous; he also exuded sensuality, vulnerability and playfulness. Charlie was the perfect Dom for him in every way. This book had perfect sex scenes, more than enough to keep me interested and they were sexy without having too many whips and chains. I got this book free from omnilit.com and I must say that I would definitely pay good money for this author’s work. I have no qualms about giving this book my ratings of 5- bring out the vibrators; you’ll surely need it.
