Master Squire by Gray Dixon *Review
Posted by brriske
Unsolicited aid from a stranger was not what Zayne expected when a mystery man found him. Despite the comforting physical reaction to Jagger, Zayne couldn’t afford to trust. His brother’s life depended on him. What else could he do but run?
With time running out, desperation drove Zayne back to ask Jagger for assistance to save his career, possibly his life and his brother’s. Can a last-minute plan work, or will Jagger lose the chance to find the one man who could heal his battle worn body and heart?
This did not disappoint!
Jagger is security manager for Club Tabu, and he is having a bad day. In a foul mood, he finds Zayne in the back alley, all beaten and bloody, so what does he do?? Takes Zayne home. WHY?? He doesn’t know, not really, but maybe, just maybe he can save Zayne.
Zayne needs help to save his brother, he has already taken one beating, and prefers not to have another, but he doesn’t want to ask for help. Until Jagger kisses him. Then all bets are off and Zayne needs Jagger more than he needs to breathe.
What particularly pushed all my buttons was the slow build. Its well over 3/4 of the way through before Jagger and Zayne actually get their act together and do something about the attraction, but Jag was waiting for Zayne. Jag knew who he was and what he wanted, but he needed Zayne to be sure he wanted what Jag had to give.
This is book 6 in this series and I have not read any of the others. I did not feel I missed anything, but for me, there were little hints dropped from previous books that I now need to go back and read at some point. Just for me, not because I didn’t get it, or I felt I was missing information, just because I want to and I can. Another 5 books added to my ever growing wish list!
5 full stars
