Wildly successful entrepreneur, Thane Walker is stubbornly set in his ways and adamantly resists the shackles of commitment. He’s seen enough unhappy endings to learn the best way to play is by keeping his men on the payroll.

Levi Silva’s dream of graduating from one of the country’s top medical schools is in his grasp, until news from home changes everything. Now, he’s raising his two teenage brothers and trying to keep everyone’s head above water, emotionally and financially.

When Levi’s new job puts him in Thane’s path, their chemistry explodes, but their fear of being involved in relationships keeps them apart. Unfortunately, despite the intense desire drawing them together, neither man can move forward until they get past their own…Reservations.



Book Cover

  • Headless torsos and/or exposed abs – how original
  • Doesn't fit the story


  • Memorable after I put it down for a few hours


  • The vibrating butt plug scene was hilarious
  • Levi's brothers' reactions to the view outside Thane's hotel room were great
  • Thane has money, but it isn't 'mansions and yachts' level at this point, which is probably the most realistic portrayal of wealth I've seen

Character Depth

  • Hip deep

Mood Upon Completion

  • Happy


  • Very few/no typos

Sex Scenes

  • Decently sweet
  • Plasma hot


  • Yet more of the 'I love him, but I must stay away because I'm not good enough' crap
  • Thane's parents showing up and telling him not to make the same mistakes they did -and Thane actually listening to them after 5 minutes of conversation - after we're consistently shown his lifelong hatred of them is unrealistic
  • The repeated setup for the 'big misunderstanding' that never happened became grating; either do it or don't, geez
  • Levi constantly putting obstacles in the way of their relationship started to become tiresome, especially near the end of the book

Emotional Depth

  • Moderately emotional

Content Warnings

  • Abuse (physical, one, minor, past)
  • Character death (supporting, one, past)

I recently began using voice-activated recording to take notes as I read, and the recorder had an error so there’s a large chunk missing from my review. Sorry 🙁

I’m looking forward to reading more about Julian and the “Marlboro man” in the next book!

Sorry, no post found.
