Blurb:

The last thing on Damian Archer’s mind is a relationship. He’s focused on running the family business and keeping up appearances. He’s fine with the way things are, until the tattooed help at a friend’s party takes one look at him and calls him on his bull.
Fired from a brand new job, Fin Thornton is homeless and penniless. He knows men like Damian. He abhors men like Damian. Despite the wealthy man coming to his aid when he desperately needs it, Fin is hesitant to lower his guard. Yet Damian insists on being in Fin’s face, demanding things and offering help.
In spite of their differences, something keeps them wanting each other. The same connection that has Damian desperate to stake a claim on the skittish Fin. But it will take a ghost from Fin’s tragic past to show both men that what they have is worth more than money.

My View:

When the lady who reigns supreme at giving us badass alpha males who carry guns and live fast and hard gives us sweet it’s kind of scary! There is still a teeny bit of angst in Keep Me Wanting but nowhere near the level you have come to expect from this author.

Keep Me Wanting could be a modern day Cinderella. Damian is the business mogul with more money than he knows what to do with, he is also a man not interested in relationships. The people that are important in his life know who he truly is and the rest don’t really matter. He loves his family, he is loved by his family and as the story unfolds we discover he is quite the compassionate man behind the blank mask he wears.

Fin is very easy to like from the start. He is like a rebel without a cause only on closer inspection he really does have a cause and it keeps him awake at night. Six months ago he ran away. Physically he may have stopped running but mentally he is all over the place. He is a bottle of emotion that keeps on exploding making him angry and defensive with the world. Fin really needs a break in life and an angry and confrontational conversation with Damian at a party might just give him what he needs if he can just drop those walls a little.

I liked Fin and Damian together. Their different life situations worked, their age gap worked, Damians constant battering down of Fins walls worked. Avril may have given us sweet in this story but Fin and Damian are just as hot together as you would expect. It may be sweet but it was still downright dirty!
