Thick as Thieves by Tali Spencer

 After Vorgell the barbarian fucks himself with a unicorn horn, he ends up in a cell with Maddog, a pretty young thief. It’s lust at first sight for Vorgell—but honestly, he can’t help it. Unicorn horn is a potent aphrodisiac, and now he can’t stop thinking about sex. Luckily, Madd is one male witch who knows how to put Vorgell’s new magical body to good use when he tricks Vorgell into a kiss that helps them escape.

Vorgell may desire sex in general—and Madd in particular—but Madd has no intention of being screwed by a man twice his size. He has problems of his own, including an enchanted collar that causes him to desire his most hated enemy. He wants that collar off as soon as possible, but that requires stealing a basilisk egg from the castle they just escaped.

Drawn together by lust and magic, the two men join forces and soon find themselves up to their necks in witches, wizards, and trouble. Vorgell and Madd might just be perfect for each other, but first they have to survive long enough to find out.

I have to say I was very interested by this story once I read the blurb and so when the chance to review it came up, I was really excited to start reading it.  I mean come on, when I a blurb talks about a man doing things with a unicorn horn? It has to make you curious!
I did enjoy the story quite a bit once I got into it it did take me a bit to get to that point because to me the beginning was a bit slow.  But towards the middle of the story it ended up getting a lot better. I enjoyed the way the characters were able to play off of each other throughout the story, and how they were actually what ended up making the story work for me in the long run.
Usually I don’t really like stories that pertain to witches or magic, but I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised when I was reading because even though that is what Madd is, that didn’t take over the story at all.  There was a really good balance done in those aspects that did help keep my attention.  Another great balance would be the sex that takes place, with the condition that Vorgell suffers from, sex has an obvious role in the book, but thankfully it didn’t take over the whole story.
Overall, I would say that if you are looking for a good read that will keep your attention, and you enjoy a bit of magic in your stories, than you should check this one out!
