Daniel and Ryan have fallen into a routine, carefully keeping work and play separate. In the office, they’re co-workers, people who sometimes meet in the break room, but in the bedroom they’re different. Daniel likes being someone different. He likes being Ryan’s Daniel for a little bit every night.
This is the third instalment in this series and although they are short, they are full of detail. We continue to follow the two MC’s, Daniel, who is incredibly OCD about all areas of his life except for the time he spends with his work colleague, Ryan, to whom he hands over all control when they spend time together. These ‘books’ have to be read in sequence to fully understand the relationship these men have and to see how much Daniel has progressed in letting Ryan become a larger part of his life. Despite the fact that the men have their designated time for carrying out their ‘scenes’, we can now see the lines becoming blurred as the two start to become friends and enjoy a little intimacy that Daniel would have originally not allowed himself to have. It’s an odd set-up but I like these men more and more as time goes on and I’m really looking forward to the next chapter.
TE’s writing style is unusual in that it comes across as very detached but I think this just reinforces the way that Daniel thinks and feels. He likes to compartmentalise every aspect of his life and maintain a distance and form of detachment. I realise that what I’m saying probably isn’t selling the story very well but I actually really enjoy this author and am loving the direction these two men are headed. It’s nice to see Daniel allowing himself to be cared for and I want him to have so much more. I hope I don’t have to wait too long for the next chapter in their lives because the teaser at the end of this book, gives you a little insight into what is to come and has got me desperately wanting to read on.
