Heartbreak is new to Dominic Scotto. The once love them and leave them heir finally took a chance on love, only to be let down.
But his troubles are just beginning.
Fresh from catching his lover in bed with another man, Dominic Scotto is grabbed off the street and taken hostage. The identity of his kidnapper is a mystery, what the man wants, though, not so much. Shackled and trapped, Dominic's resilience is put to the test as his captor carries out a carefully crafted plan to divest him of his secrets.
With the heir to the Scotto empire naked and bound before him, the man known as Smoke will do whatever he must to get the answers he seek. Amid a firestorm of anger and distrust, between pain and pleasure, two men reach for each other in the darkness, but it's not over yet. Under the sun's harsh brightness, Smoke remains elusive, a man without a face and a name, and Dominic is still a target mired in secrets.

A fast-paced, sexy, emotional and sometimes tender romp through the damaged psyche of two men who complement each other through their own flaws and deep desires.
Dominic Scotto is heartbroken, having walked in on his lover with another man. A man he'd thought was out of his boyfriend Wes' life for good. Then things get even worse. He's knocked unconscious and wakes up bound to a chair with what looks a psychopath ready to carve him up.
Smoke is an assassin--a very well-placed, well-respected assassin, but still a killer. And Dominic is his next target. Smoke wants some answers from Dominic about his father's empire and he's no averse to using violence and coercion to get them. But the son of the father has nothing to give. Instead he has to watch as he's slowly cut and sliced by Smoke in his efforts to draw out what he wants to know.
Then things get a little...awkward. Smoke begins to realize that Dominic isn't all that averse to the torture he's inflicting, and in fact, it's having quite an effect on the young man. From that point on, things spiral out of control, certainly out of Smoke's as he struggles to come to terms with the conflicting feelings he has for Dominic.
It's gritty, sexy and violent in some parts, as the two men face each other down, both with their own needs and desires, hot passion flaring and taking over as the walls each have built around themselves come tumbling down.
The book is written well, the characters fleshed out so that you get to understand them and what makes them tick. If you fancy a bit of violence, cruelty, family drama and justice, ending with the culmination of these two men finding each other again, then you'll love this story.
