Sometimes you only get one chance at a second chance.

Still finding his footing after a long-overdue divorce, Marcus is looking forward to some mind-numbing drinking while ogling the grooms at Chris and Julien’s wedding. He never expected his attention to be diverted by the gorgeous best man.

One of Julien’s French Foreign Legion buddies, Timur doesn’t speak much English, but language is no barrier to Marcus understanding exactly what the huge Tartar wants—a one-night stand.

Except that one night turns into two, three, then more, which puts Marcus on edge. After Timur is done house-sitting for the honeymooning couple, he’s headed back to the Legion for another five years. Like it or not, once Timur gets on that plane, the fling is over.

Unfortunately, Marcus forgot to tell his heart not to fall in love. And this time, if history repeats and he makes another wrong decision, he may never see his tattooed Legionnaire lover again.

Warning: Contains a soldier who makes up for his lack of English by using his hands to read his lover’s body; a chef-turned-bartender who no longer believes in love; a length of paracord that probably wasn’t meant to be used this way; and a couple of newlyweds who are game for some four-way play.

Why I Read This Book: I’ve loved this series from the beginning. Plus I could hardly wait to see what these authors had in store for Marcus.

In A Nutshell: This book is a read, re-read, and read again. To date, I think it’s the best in the series.

What I Liked: Oh, dear, sexy Marcus. How I have waited for your story. And with the new addition of Timur… Geez. This story was beyond smexy. It was scorching. It’s intense and exciting. The connection that the authors brew between Marcus and Timur is immediate but not without its complications. I loved it. The passion, the struggle, the giving in. The characters definitely make this story.

What I Also Liked: I love the build in this story. From hookup to friendship to relationship—the authors take Timur and Marcus on a journey that is wonderfully paced, witty, and perfect. The subject of commitment is a pretty big factor in this book and is what the conflict is made of. I was addicted to the will they, won’t they of this story, hoping all the while that I wouldn’t be let down. I was far from let down. This story was wonderful. I want more of Timur and Marcus only because they are so fabulous.

And let me not forget the many cameos from couples past. Marcus and Timur meet at Chris and Julien’s wedding, after all. But the rest of the guys are within the pages of the book as well. To have an update on them was almost as wonderful as getting to read Marcus and Timur’s story for the first time.

In My Opinion: No Place That Far is the best of the series. This author duo creates magic when they write together and this book is the perfect example. Read this book.

Memorable Moments:

“I’d fuck you on the wedding cake if that was the only option.”
