A Material World Series
Detective Joel Hunter is on surveillance when he first lays eyes on Satin, the singer with the amazing voice, which is as beautiful as she is. But when the stake-out comes to an end, he can’t resist going back to the bar. He gets a shock when he learns what lies beneath the satin dress, but an even bigger one when he realizes he’s attracted to the owner of that sultry voice - Ross Dauntry.
Ross can’t figure out why the cop keeps coming back, even after he’s learned the truth. Is Joel attracted to him, or to Satin? Because the answer is important, and one way or another, Ross needs to know…
A standalone novella of satin and sensuality...
Although this story is in the same series as Lace, you will not find Dave and Shawn in these pages - Joel and Ross provide enough heat of their own.
4.5 out of 5 stars
Satin is the second book in the A Material World series but can be read as a standalone.
The first time Joel sees Satin, he's captured by her old world torch singer look and her magnificent sultry voice. Since he's on a stake-out he can't really be distracted so he eventually goes back a second time and talks to Satin. He and Satin decide to go out after she finishes at the club, but Joel gets a shock when up walks a sexy man to his table with Satin's sultry voice. While he may be shocked at first, Joel is also intrigued, so is Ross. What really throws Joel is that he's never really admitted to being attracted to men before. However, there is something about Ross that makes him want to continue spending time with him. Ross, though is worried that while Joel is attracted to him, is he really only attracted to Satin and not to Ross.
While this is a novella length story, I wasn't left feeling like the story was left incomplete at the end. There is a lot of story, some really HOT smexy moments between Ross and Joel, and a good amount of romance built around their story. I'll admit that I was more invested in Ross and his story than I was in Joel, but I have a soft spot for dancers. I also loved that these two characters were not perfect, both had flaws and things they needed to work on both as individuals and eventually as a couple. It was also good that Joel was able to differentiate between Ross and Satin. If he had not the story wouldn't have worked nearly as well which would be kind of obvious but had to be said anyway.
I am rarely, disappointed when I pick up a book by this author, and this story was no different. She crafts characters that tend to touch not only your heart but your soul. Ross is one of those characters, now that doesn't mean he's flawless it just means he resonated with me. Joel was a character that I was wary of at first because I was afraid he would not be able to deal with separating Ross from Satin. He proved me wrong and that all lead to a very good read that I pretty much devoured in one sitting.
Satin is a good, solid read with well executed characters. It's definitely one of my top reads of the summer and I highly recommend that you grab this one and fall in love with Ross and Joel. I look forward to the 3rd book in the series, coming soon.
