Summary

Maxmillian Poole, owner of Las Vegas' premiere personal protection agency, is satisfied with his loveless relationship with his lover Ethan. In exchange for providing Ethan with a job and a place to live, Max receives Ethan's thorough and very sexy submission. Unfortunately Ethan wants to be more than Max's paid plaything; he wants to build a family with Max. When a treasure hunting client makes a major discovery and requires their protection, Max and Ethan take the job. But they are unaware that the danger they will face in Las Vegas and the mountains of Argentina will threaten both their lives and their tenuous relationship. Contains themes of BDSM.

Satisfying romance, less satisfying plot!

Ethan joins Max in guarding a fortune hunter who has upset a foreign government. While Ethan is falling for Max in a big way, Max continues to deny his real feelings. The romance in this episode of Sin City was very satisfying as the boys finally seem to get on the same page. Max has a huge ego and he works so hard to keep from looking vulnerable or needy. It was great to see him finally lowering the shields! The plot was a little less satisfying: there was a whole flirtation thing between Ethan and a client that went nowhere and the trip to South America ended weirdly - more fizz than bang. I am enjoying this steamy series a lot and I’m disappointed there are only three audios of 14 books; Nick J Russo has really performed well, great character voicing, pacing and emotion.

It was nice to find out where their relationship changed.

The basis of the story was a little far fetched but what the heck, that's what fiction is for. The book was well performed and engaging.

LOVE this series!

Nick J. Russo's sex voice is probably one of the hottest things I've ever heard.

I am done with this series!

Any additional comments?

Done! I listen the first and second in this series and I was not pleased but for some silly reason, I bought and listen the third book. What was I thinking?
As Max and Ethans relationship progresses I can see the emotional attachment forming although I am still not overly fond of the series .... I kind of feel relived that audible has only 3 audio books!! I cant survive all 9 of them!

Acceptable Sacrifices

This was a wonderful audio of the book, I enjoyed Nick J. Russo's voice, it was very believable. The story really came to life for me. I would like to know when the rest of the books will be made available on Audible so that I may have the whole series on Audible. The three that I do own, I have listened to them several times. Tricia Owens is a wonderful author and I have several of her books in ebook and Audible versions. Please keep up the good work .
