Ricky Estavez immigrated to the U.S. when life in Mexico became unbearable. His traditional Mexican family could not accept his homosexuality. His comfortable life was disrupted when his fraternal twin brother, Fernando, a star in the Mexican prosecutor’s office in Mexico City finds himself in the cross-hairs of a cartel death sentence.

Dom Eric McCade, special consultant to Homeland Security on the immigration issue, was staying at the exclusive Wilton Park Grand Hotel on vacation. When Eric walked into the salon where Ricky worked for a haircut, both men were instantly smitten.

A relationship developed, but Ricky did not feel he could confide his brother’s problem to the government consultant. When Eric asked Ricky to accompany him on a luxury New Years’s cruise to Cozumel aboard the Golden Dolphin, Ricky can’t pass up the opportunity to rescue his brother from the drug cartel.

Can Ricky save his brother from the Juarez cartel, and can he salvage the relationship with Eric that was damaged by his lack of trust?


Ricky's Dilemma is the second book in the Wilton Grand Hotel series by author Skye Michaels. I love this series, I cannot get enough of it. You do not have to read it in order, but I suggest you do only because it is that good. There is BDSM in this book, but it is more trust driven than sexual driven. I like when BDSM is used this way, it adds an extra layer to the story and is very believable to me the reader.
Ricky, he has immigrated to the US from Mexico. He has a very traditional family. So when he comes out as gay, that does not go over very well. He is a good person. He does not have an over the top personality. He is really just a good soul. The kind of person you know would help you no matter what.
Eric is a Dominate. He is the consultant to homeland security. He is staying the Wilton Part Grand Hotel for a vacation. That is how he meets Ricky. He goes into the salon for a hair cut and meets the cutest guy he has ever seen.
What they need to build and very quickly is trust. I liked how BDSM played into that building. I felt it was really a crucial part of the book not thrown in for the fun of it. I love how Ms. Michaels makes me invested in her characters, and the pace of this story is very good too. Not to slow or fast. This is a nice easy read, so if you have had a long day at work and want a story to kick back with, I highly recommend this one. It keeps you turning the pages and is full of love.
