Nick says what he wants, wears what he wants, and does what he wants.
He had enough of Jeo “Hung” Mendoza when he worked as the biker/porn star’s assistant—he doesn’t need to go out with the guy. Besides, Jeo’s got a rep as a love-him-and-leave-him type, and Nick wants a Daddy who will stick around. But, somehow, the biker’s wheedling his way into Nick’s life…and he’s turning out to be everything Nick never knew he needed.

Two adults who still have some growing up to do make the journey together. Jeo has always been the playboy, drinking and carousing with any willing partners. Nick is a young man whose father rejects him, searching for a Daddy to take him in hand. We meet them both at a turning point in their lives. Nick is rather lost after the end of a long-term yet unfulfilling relationship and Jeo has taken a job at the local LGBTQ center and not been in a relationship for a long time. This is the sixth book in a series and it is clear that in previous books there has been a sort of attraction/aggravation dynamic between these two. This is the book where both decide on a short term "affair" so that at least for a while they can get some of their emotional and physical needs met. As this is a romance, obviously those best laid plans go quickly awry, and the two begin to get much more deeply involved than they ever intended. For about a quarter of the book, I was concerned that this was only going to be a sexual relationship between these two but then, the real story kicked in and I realized the author had fooled me into thinking exactly what the characters thought - that his would be a casual thing where each got the fling with each other out of their system and then moved on. Very cleverly done, so don't give up too early. Reading the other books in the series would deepen one's enjoyment of this book, but is not at all necessary to understand all the characters and how they fit together. I now look,forward to going back and reading the previous volumes.
