Sex can be a dangerous business. So can love.

On the worst day of his life, Wren Gallagher wants oblivion when he steps into Tricks for a drink. When a mysterious stranger steps up to pay his tab, he offers Wren the key to fulfilling his dreams of prosperity and true love.

But appearances are not always what they seem.

His savior owns the escort agency À Louer, and he wants the young and handsome Wren as part of his stable of men-for-hire. Down on his luck, Wren figures, why not? He needs the money. When he joins, though, he doesn’t count on meeting Rufus, another escort with whom he falls hopelessly in love.

But their love story will have to overcome the obstacles of not only trading love for money, but À Louer’s dark—and deadly—secrets.

A Dangerous Game by Rick R Reed is a sexy romantic suspense. I loved the character of Wren, young but down on his luck he needs a place to stay and money. He tries everything he can think of from couch surfing to staying with his mom. But nothing is working for him. He gets an offer that seems way too good to be true. He could be an escort, get paid tons and have free rent. All that just for sex with strangers. He doesn't want to but he tries it out. Wren is a good person, he just needed a break. I liked his normal average every day kind of appeal. He is just a poor boy with no options.
Rufus he is an ex drug addict. He has been in the business a long time now and knows where all the bodies are buried so to speak. He thinks he cannot fall in love, that is until one night of sex with Wren. Wren manages to find the heart Rufus thought he lost long ago.
Then the murders start of the male escorts. Wren has to decide what to do, stay be with Rufus, or leave and have his life.
I liked the fast paced to this book. Fit the story very well. Lots of angst and suspense. Mr. Reed always brings a great story and this one is no exception. When you want a great storyline as well as hot sex this is the one to pick up.
