Drakon Mavros is working his shapely ass off to make ends meet. His administrative assistant job at a messenger service is steady, but the money he gets from his more creative job pays most of the bills. An ex-boyfriend took his confidence, his trust and his self-esteem and Drakon is afraid to take another chance at love. When an adorably goofy man at his gym actually hurts himself trying to flirt with him, Drakon can’t resist falling under Matt’s spell. He makes Drakon feel good about himself again and praises his artistic talent – neither of which his ex ever did.
As the men begin to fall for one another, it appears nothing can go wrong – they seem to be soul mates. Secrets and lies can crack even the firmest foundation, though. It takes a true master to shore it up so that it never crumbles. Is love the mortar that can restore trust and faith and bind men forever? Only time will tell. Can Drakon and Matt take that chance?

Drakon was put through the ringer by a manipulative and cheating ex that squashed his hopes and dreams, telling him he was nothing, he was worth nothing, and would always be nothing. The man was also married with a child. As a result Drakon rarely dates, trusts few people, and cannot stand to be lied to. He makes a comment early on to Matthew that he would never date a 'big wig' which makes Matt cringe, and lie about the fact that he is THE big wig of Hawk Advertising. The question is, when Drake finds out will he push Matt away as just another liar? Or will the way he feels about the successful businessman override his fear or flight reflex?
A fitting addition to the 'Men of Manhattan' series. As with the other couplings in previous stories, these two guys have a definitive push and pull, they compliment each other well. They just have to figure out how to go about it. Matthew has always dated woman, knowing that he found men attractive as well, he just never acted on that emotion. Drake has deep rooted trust issues over his past relationship with the worst kind of man. So together, they can show each other how to feel things they've never felt. Love, compassion, trust and an equality in their relationship that they both not only crave, but demand from one another.
This is a must read series, hell, a must read author! Gasq-Dion has an uncanny ability to express emotion and passion in her books while still conveying a story. I can't to see what this Motley Crew of friends get themselves into next. Fingers crossed the fifth book in this series is for Ryan and SID!
