**2016 RITA Finalist**
**Named a Best Romance of the Year by The Washington Post**
After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic 'Nicky' Costigan--the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.
When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one-night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.
He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.
*FAST CONNECTION is a standalone, full-length romance novel with no cliffhanger*
Perfect Mix of Real and Fantasy
I love the realness in this story. The situations, limitations and imperfectness of life were there. The characters didn’t have completely horrific lives or totally fairytale lives, which happens quite often in books. Fast Connection has just the right mix of real drama and sexy to keep the reader understanding and interested.
We met Dominic in the first book. He came off as a little annoying, but that was just a type of defensive behavior. Dominic is very good-looking, but he doesn’t have the best self-esteem. He tries to make every situation not be serious so that it isn’t obvious when something means a lot to him or hurts his feelings.
Luke has had a couple of things rock him to his core in the past so he has a chip on his shoulder. He recognizes his issues and chooses when possible to remove anything from his life, which will cause him drama.
Luke is the grump to Dominic’s clown, but both guys have huge hearts hidden underneath. Both are exactly the life shake up the other needs. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and cannot wait for more from this writing duo.
Proof we need more silver foxes
Seriously, I couldn't love this book any harder. Dominic and Luke were the perfect couple in every way. The storyline flowed evenly, kept me constantly entertained and wanting more at the end Spoiler There is a chance for more at the end. I recently posed a question in a group read about liking a 'bad' secondary character when their turn comes in a book series. Do you carry the dislike and have a hard time overcoming your initial feelings? To be honest, you don't have to read Strong Signal first, but I do highly recommend it. You get the background on how Dominic was such a douchenozzle before. But back to the grumpy bastard and his Friday night.
The one thing that I can definitely put into the win column for this read was how real the characters responded and the obstacles they had to overcome were 'real life'. It being best friends with the couple and rooting them on to their HEA. No drama for drama sake. And both older characters I could relate to.
I hope Authors Erickson and Hassell collaborate soon. These are definitely firmly in my automatic one click group. Need HEA with real people? This is story you shouldn't pass up. 5 out of 5 stars.
