Control Freak Dom falls for Carefree sub.
Police captain Asher Penaz’s staunch professionalism bleeds into his home life, down to his neatly pressed attire and spartan apartment. He enjoys being the man in charge, and leather bars satisfy his need for dominance—so his sudden and powerful attraction to the lighthearted, free-spirited Daniel Tover throws him for a loop. In his entire life, Daniel has never gotten what he needs, so he moves to the next place, the next job, the next attempt to find something worth staying for, always landing at the top of his game, but never feeling like he belongs.
The chemistry between Asher and Daniel sizzles, so Asher invites Daniel home. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. With all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. But if Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need.
Asher is a Dom with a capital D. He demands that things be done his way and likes his regimented orderly life. So he is completely taken aback by his attraction to the scatterbrained, lackadaisical, adorable Daniel. In fact he is certain that there is some sort of chemical being pumped into the Las Vegas air that is causing this attraction. Of course that doesn't explain why it's still happening once they get back to San Francisco.
Daniel has been searching all his life for that sense of family and belonging and he thinks he has found it in Asher. He loves the way that Asher controls their time in the bedroom but isn't sure the man can make room for him anywhere else in his orderly life.
I fell in love with Daniel as he wandered around oblivious in Vegas. His character was so sweet and trusting I completely understood Asher's immediate need to care for and protect Daniel. And laughed every time he was confused by these feelings.
Asher on the other hand made me CRAZY! He was all "my way or the high way" and they when Daniel did what he wanted he acted like a two year old. Don't get me wrong I like a man that is possessive but Asher took it to far and you aren't sure they can ever make it back from that point.
If you like your stories messy and your heroes flawed, then Something in the Way He Needs is a must!
