Bennett “Ben” Pachowski is a bouncer at Throwbacks. He likes his job, though he gets tired of being thought of as more brawn than brain. He loves books, prefers to be romanced before sleeping with a man, and has a crazy feline companion named Bessie.
Ben’s favorite band, Rebel’s Ultimatum, plays at the club on weekends, giving him an eyeful of sexy bass player, Monty Mabuse. Ben is content to flirt — nothing more. He knows the kind of person Monty is, and commitment is not something the bass player is interested in.
When Monty resorts to something devious to get what he wants, it backfires, and Ben walks away. Before he goes on tour with his band, Monty finally gets Ben to talk to him, but if Monty really wants to have something serious with Ben, he’ll have to change his ways.
A little romance could go a long way.
I really liked this story. Ben knows he is a relationship kind of guy and won’t settle for anything less. He keeps his distance from Monty until he rescues him and suddenly he is waking up next to Monty no knowing how they got there.
Ben forces Monty to look at his life and decide what he really wants. While Ben is making some big changes in his life so does Monty. I felt Ben’s pain when he realized what Monty had done and was happy to see him make the changes to make his life happier even if it meant moving on from his comfort zone. Seeing Monty make the changes in his life that finally put his past behind him was wonderful.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice and gives a good visual of Ben.
