Derek recognizes impulsive Blue as his true love. If he had his way, sharing Blue on any level wouldn’t be an option. That’s true until Blue witnesses Derek ogling one of his new friends, Dusty Sterling. Blue decides it’s time to give his master another strong body to enjoy and uses his skills of seduction on Dusty.

Dusty is blind and fiercely independent. He’s not as weak as others would like to believe, and has no trouble setting the record straight. Becoming friends then lovers with Blue and Derek is more than Dusty could have hoped to occur. When a new killer strikes the area, Dusty’s gifts help to ferret out the culprit. Will the men survive another evil presence or has their luck finally run out?

Need You Tonight is the fourth book in Katrina Strauss’ Blue Ruin series. Ms. Strauss mixes action, suspense, engine-revving erotic encounters and the harsh realities of life to create her latest release. We gain more background on Derek in this installment, and come face-to-face with some of the past that molded him into the man he is today. This story pulled me more towards Derek and I found myself wanting to hold the man who seems to take such good care of Blue. Blue starts to understand what he’s doing to their relationship and takes more stock into keeping Derek happy and fulfilling his wishes. I could see him maturing before my eyes, with a little less of the brat I love left to enjoy. The addition of Dusty was a great touch and I’ll admit he’s someone you won’t soon forget. The story has a believable storyline and well-developed characters. I don’t want to give much away, but there is another storyline that Ms. Strauss can pull out of this book. If we are lucky, she’s already begun the first draft.

Those who enjoy the genre should pick up a copy of Need You Tonight.
