Nick gets in trouble with a man who won't take "no" for an answer. Lord Bane Dunsaney comes to his rescue. But does the mysterious billionaire pose a greater danger to Nick than the one he saved him from?

Ends on a cliffhanger...
Any additional comments?
Note, this ends on a cliffhanger, and because it is apparently "an alternate retelling of how Nick and Bane meet and is not part of the main Cursed timeline" there is not a follow up to continue the story.
Not that I'm sure I would want to, personally.
There were a lot of my personal pet peeves in this (purple prose, and a lot of "older man", "bigger man", "younger man"), as well as very little character development.
I haven't read the Cursed series, so I didn't understand much of what was happening, and the author didn't seem to take any time to try to explain to new readers what was going on. (i.e.: Did Bane own Smoke? Why was he "cat-like"?) and the "romance" was far too insta-loveish without really benefiting from an explanation of why Nick or Bane fell for each other, other than one erotically sexual night together.
I got this under the Whispersync deal, and Michael Pauley was at least entertaining to listen to, but I wouldn't recommend the story.
