About the book:
Falling is easy. Landing without breaking your heart? Impossible.
Harper is no longer behind bars, but it doesn’t feel like it. Ten years serving time for a crime he didn’t commit have left him shut down, numb, and a frozen wreck over the simplest of choices.
He’s acutely aware of the dark-haired young man checking him out in the supermarket, but he’s too deep in panic mode to even meet the guy’s gaze. Afraid the slightest move will trigger a fall that will never stop.
Fresh off a long-term relationship with a controlling man, Malachi is stuck living with relatives who think he’s a waste of oxygen. The tall guy in the long, gray coat is the first bright spot he’s glimpsed in a long time…though the man’s unblinking stare at a bottle of shower gel is a touch alarming.
Hard experience tells both of them to turn away before lust turns to hopeless attraction, and inevitably to disaster. But once their sparks connect, the arc of electricity is too strong to deny. Even if the cost is too much to bear.
Warning: Contains an ex-con with disaster written all over him, a boy toy who’s trouble with a capital T, a damp old British house, compulsive meddling, and enough hot sex to cure the severe case of nervous babbling.
Expected publication: March 24th 2015 by Samhain Publishing

4 solid stars
This book had me so torn up. I liked it, it kept my interest. I kept saying I didn’t love it. As if there was something off about it, and I couldn’t put my finger on it! Maybe I thought the 2 MCs together were just….off?!?! Except when they were together they scorched me. They lit up my insides. It has been a real long time where I have picked up a new read and felt my insides slowly burning…. the feeling in that pit of your stomach… that this! this book! it’s going somewhere!
Then I thought hmmmm, its darker, edgier, def has angst… but not a Mareangstbook? What is it that is making me feel as if this just another read???
13 hours later I still cant tell you, but I can tell you that this book, the last 25% grew and exploded and made me think… Blimey!!!!! (new word for OMG and fits with the Brit boys in this book) this is FANTASTIC.
The mystery ran smoothly, the whodunit, the clues, worked seamlessly IMO.
The sex. The sex is so desperate and so hot and so just so… I have no words for it. When you read this book you will know what I mean.
The characters, so complex and you can feel (Harper’s) desperation, you can actually feel his heartbeat.
I loved both MCs equally. They both had qualities that you would want to find in a man. And the laughter and conversations melted me. Melted me.
I went through…
That was hott yet Im laughing
Biting my nails
Twisting my hair
This book shall give you it all.
And I will let you know that I really really really can’t wait for Book 2.
Once you meet Conrad I think you’re also going to be salivating for Book 2.
Dear Ms Elsborg.
Please dont make us wait long~
