Can a pickup line from a stranger completely change the way an ordinary man sees himself?
Adrian wouldn’t have thought so, but after an ugly breakup where his self-esteem took a serious beating, he’s willing to try just about anything to repair the damage… even return to a secluded bar in rural Maryland and the intriguing stranger whose words have been on his mind since they met.
Biker, bouncer, bartender, and tattoo artist, Wyatt is a rolling stone. After fifteen years, he is tired of a life on the run, but he isn’t sure he knows how to do anything else or if he has anything besides a physical relationship to offer.
What’s supposed to be a one-off turns into another and another, and the relationship looks promising until the mob and the FBI come knocking on Adrian’s door.

After he gets home things go downhill with Martin but the stranger's words keep coming back. On a whim, he goes back to that bar even though it's a two-hour drive and sure enough the man is there and hits on him again. They have a one-night stand that turns into two then more.
Wyatt is on the run and has been for 15 years. His friend Furlough says its time to stop running especially since he likes this man he has been dating. Wyatt isn't sure he can do that, but every time he decides to leave he agrees to meet Adrian one more time.
I really liked this story. There are some funny parts some sad parts ( yes I cried when Wyatt called and canceled on Adrian that last time) and a twist that brings on some drama and action.
My only real issue was that Wyatt's problem he was dealing with was a bit understated. I never really understood what had him on the run and the deal about his home. I wish we had more of Wyatt's view so we could have a clearer picture of what he was dealing with.
The sex, now that was different. Adrian's first night with Wyatt was hilarious. That was a love scene worth remembering. I loved poor Adrian and his low self-esteem. Having said that, I enjoyed the story. The first sex scene with Adrian and Wyat was hilarious! If you like motorcycle men, sweet romance, accountants, humor, a touch of drama and some hot man-sex you should like this book.

Though she has spent a lifetime making up stories in her head when whatever task she was occupied with failed to keep her full attention, she only recently discovered the challenge and reward to be found in committing those stories to paper. Now that she has, there's no going back.
