Hop Lovette isn’t afraid to take risks. Being the bastard son of New York royalty has never given him anything but heartache. So when the Sassy Boyz land a contract at club Switch, he knows it’s only a matter of time before his marvelous world is turned on its head: the owner is his childhood rival. 

Rafe Marson owes Hop’s father everything, and he’s on a mission to repay his debts. Nothing will stand in his way—not even a wild, beautiful, maddening blast from his past. Not even when Hop stirs up feelings better left dormant. Not even when Hop begs to be taken.

When opportunity knocks, Hop is the one who needs to step up and help Rafe. But working together without being together is harder than they thought—and when everything they’ve been working toward is threatened, Rafe will need to prove that true love is one in a million.

My Review:
ooh, I honestly think this is my favorite book of the series so far. I loved this one so, so much...with the complex history between Rafe and Hop and their unmistakable attraction to one another right now...it was so much fun to read.

Throughout most of the book, what happened in the past is this curious, suspense-filled, mystery...and Hop's father is the villain waiting to leap out of the corner to ruin it all. But in the middle of all that are these two men that know they're going to get hurt just because they are connecting so perfectly together...and they are so good together. I love their dynamic. 

Hop is this take no crap, no holds barred, kind of guy who doesn't let anyone get one over on him, but he has this wonderful submissive side that Rafe plugs into. The author did an amazing job balancing that dynamic. I really liked how this whole story line played into Hop's past, too.

And of course, all the Sassy Boyz are there with their wonderful gender-bendering act that I ADORE. 

Overall, I just really loved this book. I loved Rafe and Hop together and the whole story just worked for me on every level. I enjoyed it thoroughly and definitely recommend it. 

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