I’ll admit I wanted to read this because… who can resist a steamy romance in New Orleans? As soon as I started reading it, it hooked me! Darcy Butler recently moved to NO with his girlfriend (sometimes real girlfriend, sometimes just girl friend) and the rest of the team that works at his e-magazine. Their business is doing very well but they’ve decided to give it some umphhh by hiring a renowned graphic designer/artist/photographer to help them with pictures and the look of the magazine.
Darcy ends up meeting Caleb alone, at a bar, because the AC in their office isn’t working. And it was pretty much lust at first sight for both of them. Caleb knows he’s attracted to men, and Darcy hits all his buttons, just his type. Darcy on the other hand doesn’t know what to do with that initial punch of attraction. He’s not supposed to be attracted to men is he?
Even though Darcy tries to fight it, Caleb is determined to have him. What starts out as a fling for Caleb and maybe some exploration for Darcy quickly turns into deeper feelings.
I really enjoyed Darcy’s character. He’s had a rough time with his girlfriend. They’ve been together for many years and he always thought they would get married but that is now the farthest from her mind. He made a big move to NO without really wanting to. Now he has to deal with being attracted to men, and his very strong connection to Caleb. Caleb on the other hand is a tortured soul, a true bad boy, and someone who has had a really tough past.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
