Nightclub owner Marcus Feldman never met a man he didn’t love, at least for the night. Although his best friends have all found love, Marcus shuns their advice to commit to one man and settle down. His past has taught him monogamy and marriage is for fools, and Marcus is anything but a fool.

Tyler Reiss’s dream of dancing professionally is unexpectedly cut short and replaced by a different kind of love. He trades in his ballet slippers for go go boots, and spends his nights dancing at the hottest gay club in the city. Flirting with the customers for tips is easy, but resisting the dark and sexy Marcus is becoming harder to do with each passing day.

Unforeseen circumstances bring Marcus and Tyler closer and though they give in to their mutual passion, both still struggle to guard their hearts. When crises threaten, Tyler and Marcus find their strength in each other rather than falling apart. Tyler must choose to either run, or stay and fight for the life he wants, while Marcus realizes that love doesn’t mean losing himself and opens his heart, making him a better man in the end.

My View:

If you have been following Steven’s Breakfast Club series, I know you were as eager for Marcus’ story as I was. I have enjoyed every story I have read from Stevens. She is a solid storyteller with likable characters and realistic plots. Her characters are never kidnapped by the mafia or hung out to dry by a pirate. They are people like you and me just trying to make the best of the life they are given.

Marcus had a privileged upbringing, but he proves that privilege does not necessarily equal happiness. Throughout the course of the story, we also get to see him learn that what you think you want and what you need are not necessarily the same thing.

Tyler’s life has been anything but privileged. Orphaned and now responsible for the care of his niece, he is just trying to make ends meet. He is just trying to do the best he can for his niece and keep a roof over their heads and food on the table… in New York City.

Together they find that preconceived notions and life plans have nothing on finding the love of their lives. This story is sweet and hot, and you won’t want to miss it. Also, for those of you who are fond of Micah and Joshua from Steven’s Memories of the Heart, you are in for a treat.

Keep doing what you are doing, Ms. Stevens.
