Thanks so much for stopping by today’s blog tour! Satin is book number 2 in the ‘A Material World’ series by K.C. Wells. In this story, you meet Detective Joel Hunter who is undercover at a local gay club. A particular singer catches his eye and he keeps returning, even after the case is closed. Ross enjoys his excursions as sultry singer Satin but is hesitant to start anything with a guy who may or may not like what lies beneath the dress. I received one copy of this book at no charge in exchange for my honest review.

Can a touch of Satin bring a straight copper to his knees?
Detective Joel Hunter is on surveillance when he first lays eyes on Satin, the singer with the amazing voice, which is as beautiful as she is. But when the stake-out comes to an end, he can’t resist going back to the bar. He gets a shock when he learns what lies beneath the satin dress, but an even bigger one when he realizes he’s attracted to the owner of that sultry voice – Ross Dauntry.
Ross can’t figure out why the cop keeps coming back, even after he’s learned the truth. Is Joel attracted to him, or to Satin? Because the answer is important, and one way or another, Ross needs to know…
A standalone novella of satin and sensuality…
Although this story is in the same series as Lace, you will not find Dave and Shawn in these pages – Joel and Ross provide enough heat of their own.
(Rating 4 Heat 3)
I really enjoyed this story, particularly the characters themselves. Joel is a police officer who ends up in a gay club undercover. He becomes totally enthralled with a singer (Satin) over the course of the investigation. Even when the case is closed, he keeps going back. He is a relatively simple guy but definitely one that has been unlucky in love throughout the years. He and Ross start to hang out just as friends who enjoy getting coffee together. Underneath, he suspects there is more to his enjoyment of those coffee dates than just hanging out with a friend. He seems to have less of a problem with possibly being gay and more of a problem with the idea of committing to someone in a serious relationship.
Ross is so intriguing! He is this beautiful blend of grace and confidence. He is slim but muscular which gives him the perfect balance of strength and gentleness. I really loved how the author portrayed him. He is a female impersonator and does a fabulous job as Satin but he really and truly loves ballet. The scene with the ballet barre will have you drooling!
There was just the right amount of emotional conflict in the relationship. Just a touch of angst to make the story believable without it being totally over the top.
I did think that maybe the sex moved a bit too quickly. Not necessarily too quickly as in location in the book but more like I don’t think a guy who was new to a gay relationship would move quite that quickly. I think more hesitation on Joel’s part would have been more believable. I will say, though, that the heat level is pretty intense…things are VERY steamy between these two guys!
The author created a few key secondary characters that I really enjoyed as well. You get to know Joel’s partner Trish and Ross’s roommate. They round out the cast of characters very nicely.
Overall, this is a good story with well developed characters that I really enjoyed getting to know. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series!

About K. C. Wells
Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….
K.C. loves to hear from readers.
