Eight months ago Robin Secoya left his lover and master, Stack Lobond, because he didn’t believe Stack really cared about him. He was sure that for Stack, any warm body would do, and Robin wasn’t willing to be just a warm body anymore.

A chance meeting at the Iron Eagle Gym brings them back together, and old feelings aren’t far from the surface. They decide they can’t pass up a second chance at romance. But this time, it isn’t just Stack’s demanding career as a big-cat vet putting strain on their relationship. Robin also has a new job that takes up a lot of his time.

Will their kinky love affair crash and burn a second time, or can they find the balance that will allow the passion between them to flourish?

4 Stars!

Robin and Stack broke up several months ago when Robin felt like he wasn't being heard. Robin has since forged a new life that isn't miserable, but isn't happy either. He misses Stack, but thinks that his former lover and master doesn't really want him. They literally run into each other and find themselves trying to start anew.

Having read only one of the books in this series prior to this one, I didn't really feel like I was missing much by skipping ahead to this book. However, I did wonder if the breakup of Robin and Stack was mentioned in one of the other books since we jump right in with them already separated for eight months. Stack and Robin clearly have chemistry, and they are very much in sync with each other when in a scene. They also still love each other. Robin has grown through his struggles, but he still needed to learn how to communicate his needs better. I liked that Robin realized that he couldn't expect Stack to know everything and run after him. I also liked how Stack tried hard not to miss opportunities to show Robin that he was thinking about him. What I missed though was the more in-depth conversation that I thought they would have about the breakup and the events that lead to it. I also was disappointed that we didn't get to see how Robin moves forward in his professional life. That being said, I enjoyed this read overall and want to go back and catch up with the rest of this series when I get a chance.

I think most fans of this author will enjoy this book.
