When Gage Evans gets a look at his hot nurse, he's smitten immediately. Too bad he's given the nurse the impression he's some kind of daredevil. It couldn't be further from the truth. Gage is a college journalism instructor writing a series of guest columns that require him to jump into new experiences -- a fun bucket list, but one that does nothing to convince Ben he's not an adrenaline junkie.
Fresh off his latest heartbreak, nurse Ben Griggs is wary when one of his patients shows an interest in him -- especially when that patient showed up in the ER after a motorcycle accident. Ben's ex was a biker, a friend with benefits, and he dropped Ben cold when someone more interesting came along. Ben isn't the kind of guy who can hold the interest of an adrenaline junkie like Gage Evans for long. The last thing he wants is to lose his heart to the wrong man again.
The more Ben gets to know Gage, the harder he is to resist. He can only hold on for the ride and keep his guard up as much as he can. But Ben's lack of trust seriously gets in the way of building a relationship, and Gage will only be patient so long. Can he trust Gage enough to give his heart, or are they destined to have a fling that goes nowhere?
This is a m/m romance. It is Book 6 in the Ashe Sentinel Connections series, but it can be read as a standalone.
Ben is a nurse who hasn’t had much luck in love and the guys he’s been involved with, have left him with huge trust issues. When he meets Gage, he thinks he’s a biker and an adrenaline junkie and even if the attraction between them is instant, Ben is not willing to risk it.
Gage is a junior college Journalism professor, working on a series of articles that usually end up with him in the ER hurt in one or another way. He’s drawn to Ben from the get go but getting the hot nurse to go out with him will be an exercise in patience.
I absolutely adored Gage! He was sweet and reliable and had the patience of a saint. I liked Ben, but he had a lot of issues and there were times when I was torn between wanting to slap some sense into him or punch him for hurting Gage. I also had some problems with how everyone sided with Ben, when in my eyes, he was the one that had to make it up to Gage. *cuddles Gage and glares at all the others* Gage and Ben had great chemistry and the sex scenes were hot.
Overall, it was a fun, low-angst, entertaining read, very well-written and that flowed nicely. Recommendable!
