Dangerous Wish by Morticia Knight

 Love is a dangerous emotion that EMT Jared won’t risk. But it looks as though a sweet and sexy National Guardsman is about to make him wish for that and much more.

EMT Jared Li loves his job, his friends and clubbing. There’s nothing like a night of fun getting glammed up, throwing on some heels and shaking his ass to the latest Britney tune. Life is all about having a good time with as many hot guys as possible.

Dan Harrison has been in the National Guard for about six months and out for not much longer than that. At twenty-two, he’s somewhat innocent, a little shy and not interested in meaningless hook-ups. One night at a Karaoke bar changes everything for him when his fellow Guardsman, Joseph, introduces him to his friend Jared. Dan’s never met anyone like the luscious twink who’s filled with so much life and laughter.

A night of passion shakes them to their very core. Jared really likes Dan, but doesn’t want to get caught up in any type of exclusive thing. Dan wishes there could be more between them, but is willing to just be friends in order to remain near the androgynous stunner.

Hanging out strictly as friends proves to be almost impossible for them both. Not only does Jared continuously lust after the muscular soldier, but he’s also falling for the caring and compassionate man. Dan’s every sex fantasy stars Jared in one of his daring club outfits, but his heart is what really matters and it’s already been lost to Jared.

A traumatic event breaks down the barriers between them and gives them the chance to be together the way they both want. But after Dan is called up by the Guard to assist at a natural disaster, the same bravery that Jared admires in Dan may be the final thing that separates them forever.

Reader Advisory: This book contains a scene of attempted rape.

Publisher's Note: This book is best read in sequence as part of a series but can be read as a standalone.

I enjoyed this addition to the Uniform Encounters series, but not as much as the last one.  Don’t get me wrong, I completely loved being able to catch up with Dan in this book, since he had been introduced in the past books, I was really interested in finding out what his story was.  And Jared’s character was also one that I enjoyed reading as well.  I just didn’t feel that connection to it as much as I had hoped.
I really liked how Jared was dealing with the back and forth in what he thought he wanted, and what he really wanted.  To me, that was very funny and cute at the same time.  I do enjoy being able to read along as a man is brought down.  I was a bit disappointed with Dan at first, but then I figured out what he was hoping for, and how he was finally able to get it.
I do have to say that I am once again shocked by how well written another of Ms. Knight’s book was.  She has the ability to bring the characters to life and bring you into the story. Overall, I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys this genre and is looking for a good read.
