Blurb: To Nathan Hunt, honesty is anything but the best policy. Telling the truth has gotten him nothing but heartache and pain; so lying about who he is and what he wants seems to be the only path to job security and friends. Hell, it even brings him a hollow kind of happiness.
Except, that’s not much of a life for any man. Especially one with Nathan’s passions. Desperate to cure his self-made misery, Nathan agrees to go along with a con that will score cash for Nathan to start over. There’s just one problem: lying is getting harder by the day. And a con who can’t lie, is a con who gets caught.
Nathan’s attempts to distract himself from his moral quandary lead him to a mysterious, intoxicating man named Fury. The Mixed Martial Arts fighter knows a thing or two about lies and pasts better left buried. He and Nathan have something else in common – they both want to be with someone who lets them be themselves.
Together, they undertake a journey that proves honesty is more dangerous and more difficult than either of them could have imagined. And as they combat addiction, thugs, guns, and their own inner demons, Nathan and Fury can only hope that their battle to be together will be worth the bitter fight.

Review: Nathan lies. He lies to hide himself and be accepted by those around him. And it is slowly draining him of life. Now he is in so deep he doesn’t see a way out. Nathan is gay, but to continue hiding he is engaged to his boss’ daughter to keep up the appearance of being straight. As the story progresses the reader learns the real reason he is trying to be straight. Nathan had a seriously messed up childhood that has made hiding seem the best answer. He uses drugs, alcohol, and sleazy bathroom sex to deal with his emotional pain.
Fury at first look is just a hard ass fighter. But he is truly an amazingly sweet man. Fury had a horrible childhood also. If he let it, his past would drown him. Instead, he deals by being a MMA fighter to get all the aggression out. Fury is gay and is not ashamed of who he is, but he doesn’t advertise it either. Fury is a very smart and honest man who gives Nathan some hard-won truths.
The two MCs are from different backgrounds and deal with life much differently but they are perfect for each other. Fury lives in a world of violence and Nathan is full of the lies he tells. But the two of them together give each other something they both need. Human connection and love. They have to overcome so much together and rely on the other. There are many heartbreaking moments and maybe a few tears.
This is NOT a light read at all. It is intense and gritty and most of all real. I could believe the issues and situation that happened. Also, the sex is seriously HOT and may make you fan your face and need a cold drink. The shower scene alone… OMFG. Together these two men learn to let go and hold on to each other.
Holy Shit this books starts and you don’t want it to stop. There is angst, action, and damn hot sex. It’s a rollercoaster ride that keeps you on edge and you hate getting off of when it ends. I loved Nathan. He is so totally a hot mess at the start. When he finally opens himself up to Fury, it was amazing. But Fury really stole my little reader heart. I just wanted to grab him and hug him. I love them together.
This book is well written and hard-hitting. It’s a must read if you love damaged MCs, burning the pages sex, having to fight to be together, and finally a happy ending.
