Winner Takes All

Winner Takes All by Cheryl Dragon is a hot, sexy novella from start to finish. The intense attraction between the two heroes as well as the fast paced story made this book a very quick and highly enjoyable read.

Kyle Ogden started working for a successful athletic equipment company fresh out of college. As part of his job, Kyle works a booth at many tradeshows so he can promote, sell and get ideas for new products. Since Kyle has represented the company he works for during many tradeshows, he's become familiar and even friends with other workers who work for the different competitors' booths. For some time now, Kyle has liked and been attracted to Jim Park. Since Jim works for a competing company, Kyle has gotten to know him through working other tradeshows and the friendly banter the two men have developed together. But, even though Jim is friendly he's also very reserved. He doesn't believe it would be good for business for them to develop any kind of relationship between them and Jim is also hiding the fact that he is gay from his conservative employer.

In the past, Kyle has tried to accept these reasoning's to stay away from Jim, but as they both men set up competing booths side by side at this year's Martial Arts expo, Kyle is finding it more difficult to hide his attraction and the budding feelings he has for Jim. When they are asked to compete against each other on the mats to show off their competing products, both Kyle and Jim discover that not only are they equal competitors in Martial Arts, they also have a fetish and love for rolling around the mats with each other. Since Kyle finds that he is unable to keep his hands off of Jim, he convinces Jim to meet him at the mats at midnight so they can wrestle and compete without judging eyes or an audience watching them. When Jim meets Kyle that night, Kyle is determined to have Jim in his bed and in his life.for good. But, will they be able to work out their differences so they can build a future together?

I really liked this book. At just under 47 pages PDF, it's a great choice for those who want a sexy and light read on a rainy day. Both heroes are very likeable and well matched for each other. It was easy to believe that the attraction and budding feelings they have for each other could build into something very profound and lovely between them. I liked Kyle's tenacity and determination to meet with Jim and then have Jim in his life. Winner Take All was very satisfying read and I'm looking forward to reading more books from Ms. Dragon in the future.
