Seven years later, he's a veteran with a reputation as one of Blue Boy Studio's most ruthless tops, and when his boss suggests it's time for a change, he finds himself staring down the barrel of a gun. Figuratively speaking, at least.
Enter Sonny Valentine, a go-go dancer at Blue's sister club, Silver's. Levi has secretly admired Sonny from afar for years, but there's a problem. He can't stand Sonny and the feeling is entirely mutual. When Levi learns Sonny is to play the third part in a scene he already considers his worst nightmare, he figures things can't get any worse.
But when preparations for the scene from hell collide with tragic events in his personal life, he finds his fast-growing, red-hot attraction to Sonny just might be the only thing left between him and a bullet.
|Levi is a mechanic by day and a porn start by night, he keeps both jobs to support his alcoholic mother. After his father killed himself 8 years prior, he's taken on the role of guardian. This is a lot of pressure to put on a young man, but he puts on his big boy pants and just does it. I admire this most in his character. |
When his boss at Blue Boy makes him am offer he wants to refuse, but that medical bill is looming over his head, he takes on a three way with a certain dancer, Sonny Valentine.
It seems these two loathe each other. In the two years Sonny has been there they haven't even really spoken, and now they're tossed into a scene together. The chemistry between these two is kind of strange. There's a hatred there with a ton of curiosity. I think that's what keeps you reading it. You want to find out where they go and if they do the scene.
We have come to know that Garrett's characters are going to be something amazing and special (hello!? Slide...Misfits...etc...), but in this book, I thought the character lacked the depth and emotion we have come to know and love. I will say I was engaged the whole time, but it fell a little short for me. Tjat being said, I would definitely move along in this series!!
Garrett's debut novel, Slide, won Best Bisexual Debut at the 2014 Rainbow Book Awards, and her polyamorous novel, Misfits is a finalist in the 2016 LAMBDA awards.
When not writing, Garrett can generally be found procrastinating on Twitter, cooking up a storm, or sitting on her behind doing as little as possible, all the while shouting at her menagerie of children and animals and attempting to tame her unruly and wonderful FOX.
Garrett is also an award winning cover artist, taking the silver medal at the Benjamin Franklin Book Awards in 2016. She designs for various publishing houses and independent authors at blackjazzdesign.com and co-owns the specialist stock photography company M O O N Stock Photography.
