GLBT Futuristic Fantasy
Rating: 5 Cups
Corporate rule has gained control of world politics, and Andreas Fortias is heir to one of the largest fortunes in the world. Being born into such wealth has made him nothing more than an idle rich boy seeking entertainment wherever and whenever he chooses, a state he is becoming increasingly uncomfortable with.
Surviving the streets of Brick Town gave Jabez the instincts and skills he needs to take down his opponents in the cage. He has three more years of fighting for his life in the ring, if he hopes to ever see the outside of his cell, because true freedom is never an option for someone like him.
If it was not for his so-called friends, Andreas would have never met Jabez, and for that he will always be grateful. He took one look at the fighter and found his heart pounding with more than the excitement from the fight, but their first meeting left a very sour taste in his mouth. Here was a man more potent and commanding than any he had ever known, locked into a life likely to get him killed on any given day, and Andreas realizes that he cannot let that happen. Jabez is stricken with emotion too overwhelming to understand when he finally accepts Andreas’s invitation, but the likelihood that it will blow up in his face makes him extremely hesitant to believe in Andreas' motives.
Bonnie Dee brings to life the two men in this story with such a myriad of emotion that falling for them is a given. Andreas comes off as such an innocent, but beneath the boyish front he has the heart of a hero. Jabez is the quintessential tough guy, all hard edges and attitude, but like Andreas he is so much more than a sexy face and hot body. They play off of each other’s personalities like they are two halves of a whole, and their story reflects this perfectly.
