Gabriel Panlong has seen a lot over the centuries but nothing prepares him for the sight of two gorgeous men having sex up against an alley wall in broad daylight. Instantly turned on by the men and the scene before him, he feels guilty for watching such an intimate act. Gabriel walks away, only to hear the sounds of a struggle and smell the sweet scent of blood.
Hurrying back, Gabriel hopes the two little hot men he saw are okay. Instead he walks into five large men beating the two men he longed to join. Dealing with his mounting desire is the least of Gabriel's problems. Learning that Neil and Ryan were part of an underground slavering and the abuse they suffered, it's no wonder they don't trust Gabriel. But can he help heal them as they heal him of centuries of loneliness?
This is Joyee Flynn’s first solo book and let me tell you she hit the ground running! I started reading this story and the next thing I knew, I was done it had me so enthralled.
Neil and Ryan thought they had lucked out by finding each other. They both suffered not only traumatic childhoods but everything about their lives was rough until they meet Gabriel. That does not mean Gabriel did not need them as much as they needed him. Gabriel had lived a life of solitude for a long time. Humans usually feared him since he was a dragon shifter and either ran for cover or tried to figure out a way to kill him. He was willing to take care of all of Ryan and Neil’s needs just so he would no longer be lonely.
This was definitely a unique story. There was an extremely creative idea on the authors’ part that had me re-reading to make sure I'd read it correctly. Very interesting and some things you won’t be able to find anywhere else other than a fictional story.
While the antagonist conflict did add something to the story I would have liked to have seen more scenes that included the actual bad guys. The climax and the resolution in regards to this antagonist directly were just too close together. They did however play a large part in who Neil and Ryan were. Both were not only forced into slavery, but at extremely young ages. This is what created many of their insecurities with not only themselves, but others as well.
The relationship between these three men developed fairly quickly. Ryan and Neil had already had an established relationship and they were willing to include Gabriel almost immediately. They did however, have a hard time accepting that Gabriel could really care about them. The pace of these relationships were written extremely well. Ryan and Neil’s background enabled me, as a reader, to understand why the relationship developed at the rate it did. This story was also a rollercoaster of sweet and sexy. One second the characters melted your heart and the next they sent your libido somersaulting.
Now to the hot parts, and let me tell you there were a lot. These guys had sex in any and every way imaginable. There was sex around every corner and sometimes you only made it half way around the corner before the sex began. For a girl like me, who loves her stories nice and dirty, it was lovely. All three men were capable of multiple orgasms and they sure did utilize their abilities and stamina. They couldn’t seem to get enough of each other and I, along with any other reader, will surely understand why.
Seeing as though this is the first installment of this series I am expecting big things from this author and I am sure she will not disappoint.
