For months, coffee shop owner Ian Long has fantasized about a customer he knows only as "Blue Eyes." Until he learns Blue Eyes is in the midst of a divorce—the last thing Ian wants is to be the rebound experiment of a straight guy. Giving in to lust, he invites the man into the café after hours and they indulge in a little exhibitionist play, but Ian is unwilling to get involved.
When he's forced to see Jeff again to return his briefcase, Ian finally agrees to go out on a date. Dinner quickly becomes an erotic encounter in a special room at the sex club Mavericks, and Ian realizes Jeff satisfies desires he didn't know he had. The more he gets to know Jeff as a person, the harder it is to resist falling for him.
Jeff makes it clear he's interested in more than just sex. He wants to go public with their relationship in more ways than one. But can Ian open his heart, when he fears it will be broken?

Baby brother Ian finds a Daddy! Well, not really, but boy, is Jeff hot and sexy. What's the problem? Jeff was married to a woman. Ian's been on that ride before and he isn't interested in another straight man dabbling on the wild side with a gay man. Through a series of misunderstandings and Ian's own personal issues, Jeff is pushed away, hard.
I rooted for Ian and Jeff to come together so I was a bit miffed with Ian and his judgmental ways. I'm glad Jeff persisted. Jeff is way hot and what he does with Ian in Mavericks' had me creaming in my pants. Each scene had me panting for more. Just as it seemed the two of them would be together, they get kicked hard by Jeff's ex-wife. This story moved fast and I devoured every word.
This story was a bit disturbing in the anti-gay sentiments. I understand that there are those who don't like gay men, but to have it shoved into the face in this manner was disappointing. I felt Ms. d'Ado did a great job showing this type of bigotry and being about to rise above it. This story pulled me in hard due to all the emotions it generated for me. I felt happiness, angry, frustration, delight and great arousal. Jeff and Ian are a lovely couple who I would love to watch over and over again. I recommend this story to m/m lovers who enjoy kink and happily ever afters.
