Only (Holton Woods #2) by HelenKay Dimon
Sebastian Jameson negotiates for high-end clients who need problems taken care of quickly and discreetly. Accustomed to being in control, he’s still reeling from his ex-wife’s decision to write a tell-all about their private life, one that highlighted their bedroom activities. The fallout left Bast’s love life in chaos, making him a magnet for women who thrive on risky fantasies, and a pariah to all others.

Kyra Royer knows all about Bast’s reputation—and is intrigued enough to try to change him into a one-woman guy. But getting him into her bed will be a challenge. He’s known her brother for years, and her brother, with his rough past and sniper abilities, is not a man you cross. Kyra knows Bast thinks she’s off-limits, so she’ll have to get creative to make him hers.

As Kyra turns up the heat, Bast struggles to resist the sexy young woman’s considerable charms. But when Bast’s job turns from tricky to deadly, keeping Kyra nearby might be the only way to keep her alive—even if it means getting closer than he ever intended…
MrsNorthman's Review

"I want to be your only."
Mercy was a great book, so I was excited for Bast and Kyra's story. But, it ended up being a little bit of a let-down for me. They just didn't have the intense connection that Jarrett and Becca did and the plot was lacking.

Sebastian "Bast" and Kyra have the same group of friends, but we don't really get much of a back story on what type of relationship they had, if any. Kyra has gotten a job at Jarrett's supper club with the purpose of seducing Bast, the known ladies man. She's had her eye on him for awhile and now has a chance to really go for it. He's hesitant because of their 11 year age difference and how their friends and her brother will react, but he can't resist her. The story is so hot in the beginning!

They go into this "relationship" both agreeing, it's just sex. Nothing more. But it isn't long, a few days, before Kyra becomes whiny and demanding. She becomes so insecure about his ex-wife and the fact that he doesn't take her out in public. The arguments started to overshadow the rest of the storyline. It quickly went from hot sex, to arguments, to insta-love. It's just not believable to me that two people would fall in love within a two week time period. No matter how great the sex is.

Surprisingly, I really liked the continuation of Wade and Eli's storyline. I've never read any m/m before, and don't really have a desire to, even after this series, but I liked their connection.

3/5 Fangs
