Struggling actor Dean, only escorts occasionally to pay the bills. So, his first instinct on being offered a job with a strange set of conditions is to turn it down. No date. Don’t switch the lights on. Don’t touch him. I mean, what’s that all about? What’s the man trying to hide? Dean certainly doesn’t expect sex with a faceless stranger to spark so much passion inside him. It’s just business though, right? He can put a stop to it whenever he wants.
When Dean meets Justin—a scarred, ex-army soldier unlucky in love. Dean’s given a chance at a proper relationship. He can see past the scars to the man underneath. He’s everything Dean could possibly wish for in a boyfriend: kind, caring and sweet. All Dean needs to do is be honest. Easy, right? But, Justin’s holding back and Dean can’t work out why. But whatever it is, it’s enough to give him second thoughts.
They both have secrets which could shatter their fledgling relationship. After all, secrets have a nasty habit of coming out eventually. The question is when they do, will they be able to piece their relationship back together? Or will they be left with nothing but memories of bad decisions and the promise of the love they could have had, if only they’d both been honest and fought harder. 

Kept in the Dark by H.L. Day is a great story. I loved this fast-paced story. It has a great connection, vibrant characters that I fell in love.
Dean is a struggling actor.  He escorts to pay the bills.
Justin is scarred up and ex-army.
That is the general overview of them. But they are so much more than just that. They have depth, Dean is kind and sweet. He is a character I would love to see in another story too. He is adorably sweet.
Justin is handsome both inside and out.  I loved his personality and his bravery.
This is the kind of story that kept me turning the pages.  Justin might be lying in this book well so is Dean but they both have insecure and fears they need to get over, but in their souls, they are so nice and sweet.
I would love to read more from this author in the future. This story is amazing and any true romantic needs to read this one. Beauty is more than skin deep and this story proves it.
