    So, basically it does what is says on the tin. This story is about two talent agents: one a heir to a prominent company, and the other a self made man with drive and ambition, but don't let that seemingly simple summary fool you. There are many levels to this dynamic, and not everything is as it seems. The relationship between Justin and Tony is brilliant, but if you're looking for a fluffy love story with lots of snuggling and frank discussions this is not for you. Theirs is not a healthy, easy, sweet relationship. It is tumultuous. There is a back and forth of betrayal and vindictiveness abound, but don't let that scare you. There's something natural and honest about the viciousness between them as they take turns breaking each other's heart. The story is interesting, destructive, and you'll enjoy learning more about there history of how they came to be as they are as the story progresses and things will begin to become clearer. I love it, it was great, and I highly recommend it if you enjoy a realistic and somewhat twisted love story. As to the ebook I also thing it's worth mentioning that it's both well formatted and has a great cover. This means a lot to me as a person who has had to reformat a number of .epubs that didn't fit the bill. I'm a fan of RoughDraftHero's work and loved it when I read it for free, and bought it here because they deserve compensation. They do wonderful work and I am looking forward to other pieces they make available via Smashwords.

    You would think the relationship between a man who seeks out sex in his sleep and an incubus would be simple, a naturally beneficial arrangement even. Not so. It's terribly complex and anything bet easy between Roan and his employer Ishaan. Pain, history and secrets make a divide that creates a relationship much different than the smut filled romp that you might expect given the set up. Both Roan and Ishaan make mistakes and hurt each other but the characters are deep real enough that you feel sympathy for both their situations. It's a well developed work, both sexy at times and thoughtful. If it sounds interesting to you at all I suggest you get it, I promise it'll be worth your time.
