Decidedly single but far from celibate, professional cellist Brandon is laid back, easy going, and feels just as comfortable in a dance club as he does a concert hall. He's never had a problem keeping work and play separate until he meets Mark at a club one night and then watches him cross the stage the next day to be introduced as their new guest conductor.

Brandon isn't one to go back for a repeat, despite Mark's carnal talents, but he can only run into Mark clubbing so many times before it happens again. Soon they're clubbing together, or staying in to play, and Brandon slowly realizes that he prefers being with Mark to the meaningless sex in clubs that he's always enjoyed. He can't imagine being with anyone else.

Unfortunately Mark is only in town until the concert season ends.

Imagine meeting a man in a gay club bathroom, letting him give you a blowjob that blows your socks off, then walking into work the next day and finding out he's a new member of staff, and a fairly important one at that. This is exactly what happens to Brandon, a cellist in an orchestra, when he meets Mark, the new conductor.

The attraction between the two men builds and eventually both need to admit that what they have has gone beyond pure sex and is turning into something deeper.

I enjoyed the premise of this book, the behind-the-scenes and the working of an orchestra, the fact it was set in such an interesting and varied scenario. The sex scenes were hot, the interaction between the two men got my attention and interest, and yet there was something missing for me.

I like to really get to know the characters, to find out what makes them tick and why they do the things they do. I felt with this book that a lot of it was just sex and that I didn't really got to know them as well as I'd have liked.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the story and the two men, and the love scenes and affection between them is plain to see. I just wanted more. I think the fact that this book is shorter is something to bear in mind, too.

That said, Jenny Urban writes a wonderful story and pulls you in to Brandon and Mark's world and I would definitely read more books from this author.
