Can Jason be with three amazing men and not lose his heart in the process?

Living with and being the playtoy of three men is more rewarding than Jason could have imagined. Bishop, Knight and Rook each have their own way of loving on him. In Bishop he finds a workout partner, friendship, and good solid lovemaking. He isn’t sure what to make of Knight, but the man is a brilliant artist and there are worse things than being Knight’s subject for his latest series of paintings. And the kinky things Knight does to him blow his mind on a regular basis.

It’s Rook who Jason is falling in love with, though. The bright, loving, sexy man has him head over heels and Jason’s beginning to worry that he’s getting himself in way over his head. Can he continue to be with these men without losing his heart?

My View:

Book 2 in the series picks up immediately where book 1 finished. Jason is becoming far more comfortable in his role but his role is losing definition. He was basically hired to play with three very sexual men but there are feelings becoming involved especially where Rook is involved.

There is a slightly different feel to this book. Although the four men still play together there is a definite divide into two couples there as well. Knight is as needy as ever but just as opposed to showing his vulnerability and it takes up a lot of Bishops time to keep him functioning. Their relationship is a lot heavier than anything that Jason feels comfortable with. Jason and Rook make up the other duo and their relationship is softer with Jason slowly falling for the other man.

As with the first book there is not a lot of story to follow but there is a huge amount of sex and even when they are not having it they are talking about it or teasing each other. They are well into the game now but the ending leaves you unsure as to how it will all play out.
