Erotic M/M Suspense
Reviewed by Nannette
English professor Nathan Qells is loved by many and hated by few. He’s not good at romantic relationships, and he has no idea how special he is. His neighbor Andreo Fiore does, though. Dreo has been waiting until he’s free of his dangerous job to let Nate know how he feels about him. Then just when Dreo thinks it’s safe, danger knocks on Nate’s door.
Acrobat is Mary Calmes’ next great novel. Reminiscent of her past works, Acrobat has likeable characters, some angst, sizzling sex, and heartwarming romance. With an element of danger thrown in, Acrobat is the full monty. As unscrupulous as it may be, Dreo is good at what he does. He’s a nice guy who can really kick ass. He’s also stoic and shows his emotions to few. He’s a good bit younger than Nate, but he’s wise beyond his years. His insecurity about his future with Nate is endearingly sweet, and his dominance in the bedroom is sexy as hell. Nate has no idea how awesome he is even though he’s surrounded by adoring fans. The perils he faces every day come from his student’s prosaic writing, their lack of interest in the classics, and jealous colleagues. Dreo and Nate’s relationship is unexpected and thrilling. I thought the story was going in one direction then it turned and went somewhere even better. I love Dreo because he’s Italian, because he’s dangerous, because he’s hot, and because he’s head over heels for Nate. Acrobat is the latest of what Mary Calmes does best.
