Controlled Asher didn't expect to fall for free-spirited Daniel, but they'll find what they desperately need in one another.
Police captain Asher Penaz’s staunch professionalism bleeds into his home life, down to his neatly pressed attire and spartan apartment. He enjoys being in charge and in control, so his sudden and powerful attraction to the lighthearted, free-spirited Daniel Tover throws him for a loop. In his entire life, Daniel has never gotten what he needs, so he moves to the next place, the next job, the next attempt to find something worth staying for, always landing at the top of his game, but never feeling like he belongs.
The chemistry between Asher and Daniel sizzles, but with all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. If Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need.
“You better not call me an asshole or tell me I’m selfish or any other bullshit for the rest of our motherfuckin’ lives,” Asher Penaz growled at his friend.
Of course, it was entirely possible that Oliver couldn’t hear him or wasn’t listening. There was no way for Asher to know because there was a wall of nearly naked women between them. He pulled yet more money from his wallet, tucked it into the tiny string holding up the almost-too-small-to-bother bikini gyrating in front of his face, and thought about how he’d never once expected to find himself in this position.
It wasn’t that Asher was opposed to nudity—far from it. But the female form wasn’t what did it for him. Not that any of this mattered to Oliver, as evidenced by the fact that the man had dragged him to this place.

I fell in LOVE with Ezekiel in the Half of Us which he narrated for Cardeno C earlier. He has such an easy voice to listen to and he does the humor and emotion and the smexy times so well!
I loved this beautiful love story between a man who is always in charge but whose control starts to fall apart the minute he meets a free-spirited man who just wants to be needed....Dare I say their chemistry is off the charts and the heat level of this romance is exactly where I wanted it. Sizzling. The romance was heart-warming as well. .... this is a fabulous read and I recommend it easily.
When I started reading this book, I had no idea how hot it would be! ...The bond these two men form is pretty special and particularly unique considering their preferred life style is not prevelent in most of society. Likewise, the book also makes a point to point out that Daniel, while a lovely submissive man that finds joy and pleasure in taking care of Asher, is far from a defenseless whipping boy; if the occasion arrises and his limits are crossed, he is both willing and capable of taking care of himself. Bonus points to CC for that! I might also add that the sex was pretty damn hot. ...For anyone with a kinkier bone in their body, this is going to be a great read!
This story really had a lot of great ups and interesting downs for the characters but I quite enjoyed the emotional rollercoaster.
