Title: FAST CONNECTION
Series: Cyberlove, book 2
Authors: Megan Erickson, Santino Hassell
Release day: July 11, 2016
After a decade of serving in the Army, everyone still expects me to be Dominic ‘Nicky’ Costigan—the skirt-chasing player. They don’t know I’ve been spending my days trying to figure out my post-military life. Including how to pick up guys.
When I meet Luke on a hookup app, he makes it clear it’s for one-night only. That’s fine with me, because I’m down to see what this silver fox can do. But after I arrive at his doorstep, it doesn’t take long to realize we have serious chemistry, and we end up meeting again.
He’s got more walls around his heart than a military base, but I think he’s as addicted to me as I am to him. He can’t resist me for long. I mean, who can? Except Luke’s rules exist for a reason, and when I test his limits, things get complicated. Maybe too complicated.
Megan Erickson is a USA Today bestselling author of romance that sizzles. Her books have a touch of nerd, a dash of humor, and always have a happily ever after. A former journalist, she switched to fiction when she decided she likes writing her own endings better.
She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she’s been told she has a full-sized personality. When Megan isn’t writing, she’s either lounging with her two cats named after John Hughes characters or… thinking about writing.

Cyberlove series (co-written with Santino Hassell)
Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.
Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.

Standalone books by Santino Hassell:
I love the realness in this story. The situations, limitations and imperfectness of life were there. The characters didn’t have completely horrific lives or totally fairytale lives, which happens quite often in books. Fast Connection has just the right mix of real drama and sexy to keep the reader understanding and interested.
We met Dominic in the first book. He came off as a little annoying, but that was just a type of defensive behavior. Dominic is very good-looking, but he doesn’t have the best self-esteem. He tries to make every situation not be serious so that it isn’t obvious when something means a lot to him or hurts his feelings.
Luke has had a couple of things rock him to his core in the past so he has a chip on his shoulder. He recognizes his issues and chooses when possible to remove anything from his life, which will cause him drama.
Luke is the grump to Dominic’s clown, but both guys have huge hearts hidden underneath. Both are exactly the life shake up the other needs. I enjoyed this book from start to finish and cannot wait for more from this writing duo.
