Something’s waiting for Eli. Somebody’s watching his every move…

Eli is used to looking after himself. Single for longer than he’d care to admit, he doesn’t need a man for more than a hookup, not when he’s got his loyal dog, Zeus, by his side.

But one night changes the course of his life. He meets Dominic, an actual copper and not the stripper he thought his best friend had hired for his birthday. Unfortunately for Eli, after his night out celebrating, a gift awaits him at home—but not a pleasant one.

His birthday may be over, but the threats keep coming. Keep escalating. Keep hurting those close to him. Just how far will the monster behind them go? And how much will Eli lose before he can stop them?


🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 4.5 stars
🔥🔥🔥 Heat Level: 3.5

Fast-paced, riveting and sweet! A gripping romantic suspense story!!

I loved Eli and found his sass and quirkiness matched perfectly in the hot, ‘boy-next-door’ style of, cop-not-stripper, Domanic. After a somewhat embarrassing first meeting and slightly mistaken identity, Eli and Domonic connect and sparks fly. They start a tentative friendship that is entwined with a dangerous stalker who has their sights set on Eli.

The suspenseful stalker elements of this story are done so well! A few of the chapters are written from the stalker’s point of view and this just adds to the creepiness. As the stalker escalates; Eli and all who surround him are in more danger than ever. Eli volunteers at a dog rescue center called Muddy Paws and the poor dogs get caught up in the stalkers plan to get Eli’s attention.

So much happens in this story and it’s so well written and fast-paced I couldn’t put it down. With the danger and suspense balanced perfectly with heart and love, this story is sure to keep you riveted until the end. I loved Eli and Dom and look forward to more of them and their made-family, hopefully in the next story about Kierran 😉

Beth Laycock’s books are influenced by her time living overseas as well as the gritty, urban landscape of the north of England where she grew up.

She has been reading romance since she was old enough to tell herself that line every book lover does—just one more chapter.

As a teenager, she attempted to write her first novel, and many more since then that are still gathering dust on her bookshelf. It wasn’t until she discovered the M/M genre that her muse showed up and refused to quit telling her stories about beautiful men finding love together. She hasn’t stopped scribbling them down since. Beth’s muse usually shows up when she is in the shower, is allergic to cleaning, rarely lets Beth watch TV, and insists she drinks copious amounts of coffee so she can turn caffeine into words.

When not writing or reading Beth can be found procrastinating on social media or being dragged around the English countryside by her dog.

Beth loves to chat about books on social media or you can email her at
