This is the first Sean Michaels book that didn't leave me feeling ripped off or mislead by the blurb in a long time. This author usually promises more than the actual delivery. Actual character development would have been nice. Suspended disbelief for insta-love, how someone longs for another for three years then finds him just when he's at his lowest, and why any law enforcement agency would require such a piercing. Minus a star for recycled shaving scene that seems to be on a loop for Michaels. Torrid D/s short.
