Erotic Romance, LGBTQ

Nathan Kraft needs more than the life he's currently living. Once an agent for the Psychic Warfare Program, he's now reduced to helping civilians get in shape at the PowerUp! gym, where his buddies and he continue to train their minds in secret. He's always up for some excitement, in the form of a job or a man, but lately he's getting neither. Then he's assigned a job, one like he used to do for the government, except this job involves his past.

Avery Holton has butted heads with Nathan since they first met a year ago when he joined the staff of the PowerUp! gym. Nathan gets impressions from touching objects. Avery sees the future. Nathan is fun, loves men, and craves adventure like a drug. Avery likes discipline, is quiet but not closeted about his bisexuality, and does the job like a professional, a carryover from his days in the Marine Corps. Thrust together on a mission that links to Nathan's childhood, the pair will have to learn to trust each other. It will take all their psychic skills and an acceptance of their growing love to defeat an evil out to get Nathan and everyone he loves...before it's too late.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: male/male sexual practices, spanking.

Are you ready for some hot m/m sexual tension? In FORTUNE'S FAVOR, Nathan and Avery heat up the pages with their desire and denial for each other. Avery's psychic gift is foresight. He's partnered up with Nathan to find a killer who also has psychic abilities. Both Nathan and the killer Malcolm possesses psychometry. This is the ability to read an object's history. This would make sense as they are related.

Book four of the Power Up! Series continues to reveal a bit more of the now defunct government psychic division. Ms. Harte is stingy in her information disbursement. We do learn there are hidden agendas Jack, Nathan and Avery's boss, keeps from the team. In addition, the secret client funding Jack's team of psychic investigators is someone none of them expected. This adds to the mystery and makes me want to learn more about this world.

Back to the smexy hot former military man, Avery. Avery is the straight and narrow soldier who gives off hot Dom vibes. Avery is not straight; he's actually quietly bisexual which is good for me because it means women still have a chance with a hot guy like him. He's smart, caring and used to giving orders. I shiver in anticipation of his orders to Nathan.

Nathan is the flaunting gay slut. Or at least that is how he used to behave. He's good looking and he knows it. His reputation of sleeping with any guy is well earned. When he decides to make a change, not many believe his change of heart. I find it a bit skeptical too. Nathan is a hot mess due to his baggage. His history is tangled up and it takes two psychics to unravel the knots. The answers are easy for the reader to predict yet the impact is no less severe or depressing. It's rather sad and for me, it's a commentary on how a person can be used and abused by their company until they become a liability to everyone around them.

The suspense part of this paranormal romance aside, the romance part is hot and smexy. When Nathan and Avery finally get together, I'm fanning myself from the heat. Ms. Harte writes hot sex and when she uses two dominant males fighting for the alpha position, the rough sex has me happily devouring every word. But there is more than just physical fun between the two. The relationship development from partners to friends then lovers is sweet and the right kind of bromance I enjoy. I recommend this m/m paranormal romance to those who enjoy a bit of suspense and sad circumstances.
