Title: Fast Connection
Series: Cyberlove #2
Author: Megan Erickson, Santino Hassell
Release date: July 11th, 2016

After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic 'Nicky' Costigan—the skirt-chasing player. They don't know I've been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys. 

When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it's for one-night only. That's fine with me, because I'm down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn't take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again. 

He's got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he's as addicted to me as I am to him. He can't resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke's rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.

I think I never really reread a book just after I just finished it. Fast Connection is definitely my favorite of this series. I didn't want to part with this characters because I adored them with all my heart. To get to meet Dominic Costigan, this adorable 27yo who doesn't have a lot of experience, and Luke Rawlings, a 39yo grumpy silver fox who doesn't do relationships anymore - to get to meet them was the joy of my day and I will surely reread this book many many times more.

"Couldn't get you out of my mind," I said bitterly against his salty skin. "You're everywhere, my bed, my shower, my fucking dreams."

Dominic Costigan was by far my fave Cyberlove character. He is back after serving 8 years in the military and he doesn't know who is he anymore.  When he meets Luke via Grindr he thinks the coming events will develop in a certain way, but surprise surprise: Luke kicks him out the door after sex. You can totally imagine Dominic as a puppy not understanding what just happened. 

But his personality and his humor and because he is just so damn adorable make Luke's walls come down. And Luke begins to wait for his little messages in the morning and their sexy nights on Fridays. He makes him PB&J sandwiches and laughs for the first time in ages when he is with him. 

There are some scenes that make my heart break and happy at the same time. I cried in the middle of the night while reading this okay. I was like "You can't do this to Dominic omg omgomg" I was seriously so invested with these characters I suffered with them. 

I cannot wait for all the other Cyberlove books to come because yes! This is one of my favorite romance series and I am addicted to them. Megan and Santino write wonderfully and magically. 

Megan Erickson is a USA Today bestselling author of romance that sizzles. Her books have a touch of nerd, a dash of humor, and always have a happily ever after. A former journalist, she switched to fiction when she decided she likes writing her own endings better.

She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she’s been told she has a full-sized personality. When Megan isn’t writing, she’s either lounging with her two cats named after John Hughes characters or… thinking about writing.

Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.

 Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.
