Kept In The Dark
By H.L. Day
Narrated by David Walker
Length: 5 hrs and 15 mins
Struggling actor Dean only escorts occasionally to pay the bills. So, his first instinct on being offered a job with a strange set of conditions is to turn it down. No date. Don’t switch the lights on. Don’t touch him. I mean, what’s that all about? What’s the man trying to hide? Dean certainly doesn’t expect sex with a faceless stranger to spark so much passion inside him. It’s just business though, right? He can put a stop to it whenever he wants.
Then, Dean meets Justin – a scarred, ex-army soldier unlucky in love. Dean’s given a chance at a proper relationship. He can see past the scars to the man underneath. He’s everything Dean could possibly wish for in a boyfriend: kind, caring, and sweet. All Dean needs to do is be honest. Easy, right? But Justin’s holding back and Dean can’t work out why. But whatever it is, it’s enough to give him second thoughts.
They both have secrets which could shatter their fledgling relationship. After all, secrets have a nasty habit of coming out eventually. The question is when they do, will they be able to piece their relationship back together? Or will they be left with nothing but memories of bad decisions and the promise of the love they could have had if only they’d both been honest and fought harder.

Wow! Not what I was expecting!
A surprisingly intriguing read/listen! I loved Dean and Justin! They both have their secrets and troubles but their connection is undeniable!
I found Dean, relatable, caring, sweet, and charismatic. The journey that leads him to ‘escorting’ to pay the bills is unfortunate but it leads him to a sexy stranger that makes his body sing! I loved the give and take between Dean and Justin and the slow unraveling of the intricacies between these two was done really well written. I loved Justin and how he treated and interacted with Dean. I loved that Dean didn’t think twice about Justin’s scars and their path to healing, love, and confidence was heartwarming.
Their, in the dark connection, is super hot and the narration just elevates it even more. The chemistry is off the charts and while the premise seems a little creepy I felt the way it was written and performed only added to the heat, intrigue, and passion.
These two are something special and I love their story! A great read!!
