Nikolas is the sanest, straightest, person he knows, so can anyone tell him, why he’s on a gay therapy course?
Nikolas Mikkelsen could make a very long list of unpleasant things he’s endured in his life. Then order it from ‘nearly killed me’ to ‘extremely horrific and don’t want to do again’. And what did it say about his forty-five years that being hit by a tsunami would be a considerable way down this list? But nothing, not torture, imprisonment, nor starvation has prepared him for what he now has to endure for Ben Rider’s sake-attendance on a residential, gay therapy course. At least he has a new contender for the top spot on his ‘my awful life’ list.
Warning this is a dark romance book and there are some parts of this book that may be hard for some to read.
In this book Nikola and Ben must go to a gay counseling seminar undercover to help their friend. There were funny moments with the banter between these two men then there were harder moments with what Ben goes through.
Now I have to say I really do not like Kate now and I honestly did not feel like that situation was handled right because it felt like she got off with a slap on the hand when she knew what she did was wrong. Now I will not say what happened because that would be a spoiler but I will say it was really messed up and wrong.
Other than that part I really loved this book and what this author did with this story! There was action which has you on the edge of your seat and so much steam between these two men.
So all together I loved this book besides that one part which still is driving me nuts that happened lol.
I would recommend this book!
