Story Overview:
Caesar Romano’s catering career is doing better than he’d ever dreamed. And so is his love life—even if his boyfriend’s house in Staten Island is way too far from civilization for his liking. But then in short order, Caesar is duped into helping his cousin propose, is tricked by his best friend and business partner into appearing on live television, and is harassed by a thug-like personal trainer and his far too beautiful wife. In fact, Caesar is almost too busy to notice that something is troubling his PI boyfriend, Dan Albright.

Almost.

Laid-back, open, charming—that’s the impression hunky former NYPD Detective Dan Albright gives everyone. Caesar can add sexually adventurous and a bit of an exhibitionist. But he also knows that Dan is hiding something—something dark and a little dangerous—and when Dan’s silence over his mysterious past threatens to harm them both, it’s Caesar’s turn to save the day.

But then again, a break-in, a gallery party, an heirloom ring, a new suit, and a stalker with bad BO are all just a typical week for Caesar Romano.

My Review:

I'll admit...going into this book, I fully expected to have to DNF it. It's not that I don't love this author...because I do love her writing. What I didn't realize before was that this was the third in the series of a series that I haven't read before featuring this same couple. I figured I'd be completely lost. 

THAT WAS NOT THE CASE! 

I loved this book even though I hadn't read the two previous books. I never felt lost or confused and I completely and totally fell in love with Caesar and Dan...especially Caesar, who has the POV for the story. 

This book...seriously, from the moment I started reading it, I did not want to put it down. It was so good. I love how opposite these two men are from one another. Caesar is seriously uptight. He has Purell in his briefcase and lives by his lists and calendars. Dan is a PI and he's more of a laissez-faire kind of guy. 

The book covers about only two days in time, but SO MUCH happens in those two days and every little bit of it throws Caesar's very orderly world into complete disarray. I loved how he kept blaming the bad juju on his heirloom wedding rings and how Dan would calm him down via orgasm. It was so easy to feel their deep connection, even when Caesar is doubting them because of how little he truly knows about Dan's past. 

The book was fun and entertaining as well as suspenseful as the reader and everyone else is trying to figure out where the danger is coming from. It was so read-able with absolutely fantastic characters, but there were also moments of heart-melting romance that made my romance-loving heart happy. I'm so happy that I accepted this book for review. NOW, I need to go back and read the first two books because I do truly love these two characters. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book in return for an honest review.
