Teen shelter volunteer Rich searches for love until Diego, from LVMPD Search and Rescue, finds him.>
After declaring his love life officially dead, Rich wonders if maybe he should stick with his shifter book boyfriends instead. It’s not as if he has much free time to date anyway. Between working long hours at a coffee shop, guarding his sodas from his hygienically challenged roommates, and running the programming at the Vegas LGBTQ teen shelter he founded—how could there ever be space for love in his life?
Diego Espinoza enjoys taking his downtime from working Search and Rescue, at the Lucky Cup coffee shop. He can set up his laptop, peruse good sport climbing spots and observe the blond barista he’s been pining over for a while. He imagines that the pretty boy has more offers than he knows what to do with, so it takes Diego time to work up the nerve to approach him.
Rich isn’t so sure about the rough looking Diego—even if he’s always thought he was hot—but once he decides to gives Diego a chance, there’s an immediate heat and connection that takes him by surprise. As they learn more about each other and try to find the way to a future together, strange and scary things start to happen.
It isn’t until Rich is injured in a bizarre accident that it becomes clear that there’s someone out there who not only doesn’t want Rich to find love—they want him dead.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of light bondage.
Diego visits a coffee shop over and over hoping to get the attention of the barista, Rich, to ask for a date. Rich is very social and Diego is a little socially awkward about dating. Though Rich is skeptical at first, once he and Diego begin to talk their instant chemistry kicks in and their romance moves along fairly fluidly.
The major problem in the situation is that ever since Rich saw a woman shoved out of a car with a bullet in her brain, someone is trying to kill him!
If you are in the mood for a low angst/high romance book – this is your book! There are lots of feels, kisses and hugs and warm fuzzies.
The mystery is a little tense but a lot predictable and not a big part of the story.
It can absolutely be read as a standalone and is a light, easy read.
