Reclamation (Love is an Open Road) by Cari Z. (4.5 Stars)

Set in the future, in a world that is filled with despair and crime, Grayson and Matt are both fighting to make it a better place. They meet under unusual circumstances while Matt is working undercover as a stripper. As they begin to develop a relationship, Matt needs to figure out when to come clean with Grayson. Fortunately, this aspect of the story didn’t overwhelm the story. The depressing lives that they both lead was also lightened up by their developing relationship. I enjoyed watching them spend time together and support each other.  As usual, the author always manages to make me feel like I’m living in the story’s world with her incredible descriptions.

BLURB

Dear Author,
I am a cop newly promoted to detective. I’ve been asked to go undercover as a stripper at a strip club to investigate (kidnappings, drugs, sex trade… I’ll leave that up to you). While working there I meet the man who will become my lover.
He is in a law enforcement type job (fireman, FBI, search and rescue, military, take your pick). Is he just there because he likes strip clubs? Is he undercover as well, working a different angle and we get together… in more ways than one?
I have to admit striptease movements really get the blood going, but are these pictures of me working out for the job itself, a private viewing, or am I fantasizing about his hands, his mouth, his body?


I thought I could handle this assignment, but that was before the bad guys figured out why I was actually there.

Photo Description:
In the series of GIFs, we see a man from his shoulders down, shirtless, clad only in a pair of sinful denim jeans and moving in a way that makes you think warm and happy thoughts (it’s getting hot in here, whoo!). The still picture, on the other hand, depicts a naked man crouched on the ground, his hands behind his head, in a shower of water against a dark background.

  1. I see I didn’t add this one to my list, but since it’s Dystopia / Sci-Fi it’s no wonder. It’s really cool reading those short novellas from the MM Romance group on GR. I love that they do it so regularly and enable me to get to know new authors and also read short novellas for free 😉
