Luke sees a lot in his job as a piercer, but for all that, he’s shy and lonely. Can live-in-the-moment Temple open his eyes to life’s pleasures?

Luke’s a piercer and owns a successful business with his tattooing partner. Despite his job and his inked and pierced appearance, Luke is actually quite shy and lonely, not to mention inexperienced. An event from his past has left him unable to open up completely to anyone and it’s easier for him to just keep to himself.

Temple is a cancer survivor, coming up on five years cancer free. He’s travelling across North America on the back of his motorcycle, just going where the wind blows him. Ever since first being diagnosed, he turned into a true believer of living in the moment.

When Temple first turns up at Luke’s shop, Temple is immediately drawn to the quiet piercer. First he’s going to have to convince Luke that there’s something between them…then he’s going to have to work his way past Luke’s defenses.

Leisa’s View:

There is nothing quite like a story about two hot men with significant emotional baggage finding love together – and this is exactly what The Piercer’s Game offers. Luke is a piercer who quietly works at his popular shop into which Temple ambles. Luke, a former victim of senseless violence, is painfully shy and uncomfortable getting emotionally and physically close to other men. He’s kind, hurting, and innocent. Temple, a cancer survivor, is going where life and fate take him as he cruises across the country riding his motorcycle. He knows how fleeting life can be, and he’s determined to grasp his remaining life with both hands, but is also reluctant to maintain his long term medical monitoring and care.

These two wounded souls find each other, and there is an immediate connection. Their relationship has an almost ethereal quality – there’s lots of touching, kissing, and some sensually charged sex. Other than their own emotional baggage, this story is virtually angst free. There is little doubt that Luke and Temple belong together, and they almost immediately recognize their unique relationship.

Although the absence of conflict makes Luke and Temple’s relationship a bit too perfect and they almost too easily gain their happily ever after, overall this story is sweet, caring, and romantically sensual. I enjoyed this story, which can be read either as a part of the series or as a stand alone. I recommend this feel-good story to anyone who likes to read about damaged and hurting men find love and happiness together.
