Partners and Federal Agents, Jason Lowery and Noah Black wake up in bed together naked, but neither one knows how they got there, or to the remote cabin the bed's in. Jason's interested, very interested, but he fears his partner's reaction and the potential fallout if their superiors ever find out. He misread a fellow officer's interest once and lost it all -- his career, his friends, his family's respect. This time around, he won't be the one risking everything.
Noah has always been curious about sex with another man, but his strict upbringing and life in law enforcement made it impossible to explore that side of his nature safely. When he and Jason get locked in a cabin by a well-meaning friend, Noah wants to sample the forbidden.
Both men agree to a single afternoon of passion. Just to see.
When they are released from the cabin, Jason wants to see where a relationship with Noah might lead. However, Noah is not ready to make such a radical lifestyle change -- and he doesn't think he'll ever be ready to come out to friends and family.
Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content, graphic language, and situations that some readers may find objectionable: male/male sexual practices.

This book left me with a happy buzz, and that is a rare achievement for me with a romance novel devoid of paranormal elements. I have read many, many novels about falling in love and finding oneself along the way but this one had an utterly sweet aftertaste, which made it stand out to me.
Noah and Jason are federal agents and co-workers who find that they have woken up to sticky fingers—oops, I mean a sticky situation—they have been kidnapped! However, they do manage to make the best out of their predicament, and let me tell you, their best is good. (GOOD should be in italics).
The underlying conflict in the novel is interesting enough to keep your attention piqued. I found myself doing all the things you should in this type of novel--rooting for my heroes, eagerly anticipating their triumphs and the downfall of an enemy. This enemy just happens to be a bigot, and I love nothing more than watching those types get smacked down, literally.
This isn't your mom's romance novel. The scenes in the novel are graphic, so if man love descriptives aren't for you, you might want to skim some of the steamier scenes, but you'd be missing out... With that being said, I was digging it! The scenes were hot and stayed romantic, avoiding any trashy factor entirely. Noah is just so inexperienced and insecure, and even though he does something in the novel that could be borderline stalkerish, it translates across as unassuming and semi-charming. Jason brings such a strength to the novel; he knows himself and his needs. I adored this little novel, just as I adored Jason and Noah.
