Publication Date & Length: February 17, 2016 – 280 Pages
Kyle’s music blog gets a boost from rumors about his affair with a closeted rock star, but his followers have no idea of the reality of his life on the streets of Vegas. Men? He only lets them get close enough to pick their pockets.
Until Bryce– a wildcatter who struck it rich in North Dakota. He wants one last wild weekend without the bodyguards hovering. The hustler with the sexy English accent seems perfect for no-strings sex. But now Bryce can’t get Kyle out of his head. Especially since that tempting smile is suddenly on every other magazine cover…
Kyle can steal a heart as easily as a precious sapphire. But can he keep the heart he stole once the truth is out about his past?
This is a book based on more of a mystery/suspense with a little bit of loving going on. You never know what is going to go down once you turn the next corner or who is going to be involved.
The story starts when Kyle is 14 years old and his math teacher starts to obsess over him. At 16 Kyle runs away to America and meets his idol Stoney. At 18 the story really begins.
Kyle in my opinion has no control over what is happening in his world so that is why he latched on to the first thing that feels right in his life and that is following and being a fan of Stoney. I think that Kyle convinces himself that he and Dtoney will end up together and passes up on what could be the real thing with Bryce. I think that subconsciously he knows that he will never end up with Stoney and that is why Bryce is the one he always calls when he is in trouble and needs help. Kyle may not stay with Bryce but when his life and Stoney’s life are both in danger the one and only person he turns to is the one person he knows subconsciously will be there to save him, Bryce.
I think that from the first meeting Bryce knows he will never be able to get over Kyle and he knows that he is probably the only one that Kyle has trusted enough to be honest with. Bryce feels the connection between the two of them but he will not push how he feels on Kyle. He lets him go and when Kyle calls when his stalker comes calling again, Bryce is there for him. The question is when Kyle is safe who is it he will choose to be with Stoney or Bryce??
This was a book full of suspense as I said at the beginning of my posting and I enjoyed every minute of reading it. I never knew what was going to happen next and I hope that book two will tell more about how it all turned out in the long run of things. This is definitely a great read and Parker Avrile did an amazing job on it.
I ran away to Vegas. Now I’m running from it. Currently, I’m in an undisclosed location writing slightly spicy, slightly angsty male/male romances that explore the glittering world of beautiful male models, talented yet troubled musicians, and alleged billionaires who may not be what they appear to be.
