It's Friday night, and Tad finds himself doing pretty much what he'd expected. Celebrating with his friends at a night club in honor of their buddy Breck's birthday. The music's pumping and drinks are flowing, laughter and dancing bodies abound. Nothing too outlandish, nothing unusual. Until Scott and his own crew show up at the place. Funny how the one person Tad prefers above all others is the last person he wants to see. But now that he's spotted the guy across the room, he can't seem to take his eyes off him. Which winds up being a very bad thing.

I like the chemistry between the two. I'm not a fan of BDSM. I would have hated it higher if the third book wasn't so focused on BDSM.

Logan Mitchell has always been a man with a plan. One for work. One for his relationship. And one for his life. Which is exactly the way he liked it - until recently. Now with words like marriage and weddings floating around his head, Logan's plans have suddenly changed course, and where they want him to go has him feeling somewhat distracted.

This book adds more depth, intimacy, and connection to Tate and Logan's relationship. It's realistic, heartwarming, and a fantastic love story. I've never listened to or read M/M before this series, but the connection these two have transcends the sexual. They're soulmates.

Relationships are complex. Love is ever-changing. And when it comes to rules of the heart, they were made to be broken. That's what Robert Antonio Bianchi was telling himself, anyway. Otherwise, he really had no excuse for what - or who - he'd done. If there was a bad decision to be made, Robbie always had a knack for making it. And thus, begins the story of the priest, the princess, and the prick.

I didn't like this as much as I loved the Temptation Series. I hope the next book explains more and gets more emotional and intimate like Logan and Tate's relationship became. It seems like this book ended in a weird place in the story. The relationships seemed like they were rushed. I liked the realistic build up in the Temptation Series' and hope this series has the same kind of depth of feeling.

Sex. Logan Mitchell loves it, and ever since he realized his raw sexual appeal at a young age, he has had no problem using it to his advantage. Men and women alike fall into his bed - after all, Logan is not one to discriminate. He lives by one motto - if something interests you, why not just take a chance and try? And he wants to try Tate Morrison.
