A Material World Series
Detective Joel Hunter is on surveillance when he first lays eyes on Satin, the singer with the amazing voice, which is as beautiful as she is. But when the stake-out comes to an end, he can’t resist going back to the bar. He gets a shock when he learns what lies beneath the satin dress, but an even bigger one when he realizes he’s attracted to the owner of that sultry voice - Ross Dauntry.
Ross can’t figure out why the cop keeps coming back, even after he’s learned the truth. Is Joel attracted to him, or to Satin? Because the answer is important, and one way or another, Ross needs to know…
A standalone novella of satin and sensuality...
Although this story is in the same series as Lace, you will not find Dave and Shawn in these pages - Joel and Ross provide enough heat of their own.
Detective Constable Joel Hunter hasn't had much luck with relationships or perhaps he hasn't been dating the right people. Whatever it is, he's spellbound when he listens to the beautiful Satin one night at a club where his partner and him are on surveillance. He's surprised when he finds out that Satin is really Ross Dauntry, a female impersonator and dancer, but more surprising is how well they get along. Despite Joel being straight, when Ross asks Joel out for coffee, Joel can't say no, but when things get heated between them Ross isn't sure if Joel is attracted to him or to Satin...
I liked Joel a lot. He was sweet and a bit oblivious, but not mean. I liked Ross, but I would've liked to have more of his 'take' in certain scenes. I understand that it was difficult for him since he wasn't sure of Joel's feelings for him, but he didn't really tell Joel about his own feelings for Joel and then expected Joel to act, when the man was so obviously clueless? Sorry, but that didn't sit right with me. They were good together, though, both in and out of the bedroom and it was lovely to see them interact with each other and with their friends.
I really liked that Joel's attraction to Ross was such a non-issue. He didn't fret all that much when he realized that he wanted Ross, despite him being a man. Joel had been attracted to men before, but never found one that he liked enough to do something about it, so accepting he was bisexual or acting on his attraction to Ross wasn't a problem for him.
Other than the middle of the book, which I felt had a bit of unnecessary and a bit contrived angst, the book was very enjoyable, hot, sweet and somewhat angsty in some parts. Recommendable!
