Logan Marshall moves to New York to be a social worker where he feels he's needed most. Logan's always had it good. His Daddy is a preacher, sure, but he preaches a laid back, tolerant congregation who accepted Logan's sexuality gracefully. He's from a ranch in nowhere, Texas, which makes him a hot ticket in the clubs with his tight, work strengthened body and his cute accent. He's out of his element in New York, not looking for Mr. Right Now but Mr. Right.
Gianni Rodriguez grew up in Brooklyn. Nothing could be further from the way he was raised than innocent, good hearted Logan was. Gianni is fascinated that people like Logan even exist. And parents that not only are God-fearing, but also accepting?
As second in command of Los Cuervos, his brother's not-so-merry band of drug runners and pimps, Gianni's life would be in serious jeopardy if anyone ever knew the truth. That's why his growing attachment for Logan is a bad thing.
When Logan's work collides violently with Gianni's life, Gianni has to decide if the man is worth risking everything, even his family-- the man that may not even want him once he realizes what a monster the man he's been sleeping with really is. Could Logan be Gianni's reason to go straight? Or will they both go straight to an unmarked grave?
I'm going to start out saying, "WOW!!" This story hooked me in more than I ever expected it would. From the summary I was expecting an interesting tale of love between polar opposites, what I got was so much more than that.
You can't help but fall hard for both Logan and Gianni, thru their words, actions, and inner monologues. They burrowed their way into your heart and just stayed there. You go in wanting to hate Gianni but boy does he spark other emotions real quick.
This was an easy read, and that's not an insult to the author, I found myself reading and reading and before I knew it, I only had a few pages left. I'm eager to check out other stories by this author.
