Jeremy has lusted–and loved–Jax for years. He’s made it a habit of visiting Robbie Sexton’s tattoo parlor, where Jax works, just to get close to the dark-skinned god of his dreams. When his friends decide to play matchmakers, Jeremy knows it’s time to go for it. This year’s Halloween party will be one he–and Jax–never forget.

Jeremy can only think of one man who he wants to work on his back tattoo – Jax. Having Jax work on him, his fingers stroking down his spine, the nearness of their bodies all wrapped up together to be an enticing ball of need. Finally, Jax admits he can’t dance around their attraction any longer. A steamy kiss opens the door for millions of possibilities between them and the costume Halloween party seals the deal.

This was a quick, awesome read. I enjoyed reading about Jeremy and Jax’s strong, relatable characters and found great satisfaction with them getting together – it’d clearly been something building up in previous books for a long time. I enjoyed quick snapshots of numerous secondary characters but at times felt as if they were whizzing past me like a blur. I wondered if this short story added a bit of additional plot to an over-riding story arc, but this being my first book read in the series I can’t be sure. There was the feeling of subtle clues and hints dropped into the story, but being unfamiliar with the full cast it left me a bit behind and confused.

People following the author’s books will likely find many excellent tid-bits, but even readers just starting will find Jeremy and Jax interesting and great characters in their own right. I loved seeing them hook up and cheered for them when they finally got together. The consummation scene wasn’t skimped on and I found it deeply satisfying. Small hooks for other books have me curious and I like this author’s voice well enough to look them up. Strongly recommended.
