Wizard Club owner Drake Keating is restless and dissatisfied with his life. His friends and occasional lovers have all mated and he’s tired of casual one night hookups. His search for companionship lands him face to face with Justin Scott, the sexy human who manages his club. A year earlier, Drake hooked up with Justin only to dump him when he thought he’d found his mate. Now, he’s discovering just how wrong his previous actions were. Justin gives the wizard one shot at mending what he broke and Drake’s determined to show Justin that he’s changed. He has one night to learn the magical lessons of love and open the door to a future with Justin.
There are not many authors that I know that will pull me into the story and its characters like this author can and as usual she does not disappoint. With this newest story I was immersed in their world right from the start and hated to leave it.
In this visit to the Darkworld we're treated to a snippet in Drake and Justin’s lives. After being tossed to the side and watching Drake play the field, Justin reaches his breaking point when Drake shows up at the same club. After Justin confronts Drake he finds himself in the last place he thought he would be: back in Drake's arms. Will he be able to give Drake another chance or has he finally had enough?
The characters in this story are so full of depth and emotions. The relationship between Justin and Drake burns up the pages. Drake is a smart man but when it comes to love he's been an idiot. When he finally realizes the truth, it hits him like a ton of bricks and we can see just how truly sorry he is for what he's done to Justin. Justin loves Drake and wears his heart on his sleeve. He knows that he may regret his decision but Justin’s love for Drake prevails over his common sense and he can't help but give Drake one more chance. As the two rekindle their relationship the feelings that they have for each other grow into so much more and we can only hope that Justin and Drake have finally found their happy ever after.
I really enjoyed this visit and cannot wait to return to this world. The characters were brought vividly to life and I felt every emotion as if it were my own. I was not only treated to a hot story in this book but got a beautiful love story as well.
