Something in the Way He Needs by Cardeno C. 2 Stars
Controlled Asher didn’t expect to fall for free-spirited Daniel, but they’ll find what they desperately need in one another.
Police captain Asher Penaz’s staunch professionalism bleeds into his home life, down to his neatly pressed attire and spartan apartment. He enjoys being in charge and in control, 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, but with all that fire comes the risk of getting burned. As both men struggle to learn themselves while getting to know each other, the lines of desire and control blur. If Daniel and Asher can walk through the flames together, they might find what they desperately need.
This wasn’t good. Danny is a great character and the book would have been much better.
Asher was not. We get a mention of him in the first book of the series. Sadly, we see no hint of the awesome family in the first book.
Asher clings to old ideas. It is tiresome and a lot of what happens makes no sense in terms of character and certainly doesn’t feel like much of a love story.
