Literary Nymphs Reviewer: Dragon Minx 

Because he can read the thoughts of everyone around him, Aiden Marshall never felt like he fits in, not even among the member of the Power Up gym. He’s a dependable part of the team and when he’s assigned to retrieve an important book, is convinced he can accomplish the task. Then the job’s messed up by Gavin Caldwell, an accountant, out to prove he’s able to do field work.  

Gavin’s just the type of guy Aidan likes and when they’re both assigned to get back the book, going undercover as lovers at a dangerous kink party, they get close…very, very close. Aidan learns things about Gavin he never imagined and learns things about himself he didn’t know, including how much he cares for the younger man. That means when their cover is blown, he’s willing to do just about anything to keep Gavin safe. 

Flight of Fancy is the newest release in Marie Harte’s Power Up! series. FYI-It’s possible to read this as a standalone but due to the recurring characters, I recommend the books be read in order. 

Gavin and Aidan are interesting men and I like how we learned more of their personal history as the story progressed. Both men have problems to deal with and the author handles them nicely. I actually appreciate that Ms. Harte had both dealing with issues, making them a little more emotionally equal.  

I like how Ms. Harte developed their relationship and since they had to prepare for the mission in an intimate fashion, it happened very quickly. They’re very hot together and the BDSM aspect of the story is well done…convincing…and works well within the story line. The kink-club part of the plot is interesting, the secondary characters vile and easy to dislike and the atmosphere well-described and dangerous. There’s enough pain, fear and tension for the retrieval assignment to work, but I felt details about the book they were to retrieve is lacking. It bothered me that I didn’t know why the book is so important. Watch for the next release, Silver Tongue, coming soon.
