How far is too far to go to save someone you love?
Brandon Lynch is magical. He’s a scintilla who can manipulate electricity. Leaving his structured, unexciting life and job at his father’s billion-dollar business in Boston and heads south for a vacation adventure in Rio Rico, Arizona. He’s living out a fantasy by traveling to the El Corazon adult entertainment club and has booked one glorious session with a werewolf Dom, complete with knotting.
Part-time Dom for his family business, the El Corazon, and full-time bounty hunter, Raul Fierro uses what nature gave him as a werewolf to bring pleasure to some, and justice to others. He hasn’t been in a real relationship for longer than he wants to think about and his gruff and growly exterior keeps any unwanted interactions at bay. He’s not against a partner, but he’s willing to wait for the person who sees the real Raul—and his wolf—who lurks beneath the surface.
A seemingly chance meeting with Brandon the day after their scheduled session leads to a week-long affair. Raul accepts it for what it is, a vacation fling for Brandon even though Brandon is someone Raul could easily fall in love with. When Brandon returns to Boston and Raul resumes his normal routine, they keep in touch until the time Brandon’s father arrives in Rio Rico, announces his son is missing, and he intends to hire Raul to find him. Raul wastes no time picking up Brandon’s trail. Rescuing Brandon from human traffickers is only the beginning and more adventure than either man wanted. Their hunt brings them together in an unexpected way. Can they bring down a powerful, international ring of traffickers all while protecting each other and their new-found love?

I have to admit I enjoyed this book a lot more than I anticipated and that made me happy! It had me wrapped up in the mystery and needing to know what came next.
Brandon was a very interesting and unique character, being a Scintilla, and his skills with computers blew my mind (in a good way).
Raul was a character that I was expecting to not like as well as I did (which. once I started to get to know him, wasn’t a surprise), though the double careers kinda annoyed me – it wasn’t something that I could just ignore.
I can’t wait to see if my favorite side characters – Raul’s cousin Tadeo Ochoa and his co-worker Fahim Boulos – get books of their own. I loved both of them and I need their stories!
Elizabeth Noble impressed me with some of her sex scenes because they were done so differently than I have ever read about and I will definitely be looking forward to reading more from her soon.
