Title: Behind the Jade Tiger
Author: Christie Gordon
Publisher: eXtasy Books
Characters: Jordan, Kira
Sub-Genre: Contemporary, Fantasy, Romance
Finding love where you’d least expect it.
Jordan only wants to see what all the hubbub is about at the nearby gay bar. After all, his female friends say it’s the best place to find single women. But when he gets there, a stolen kiss and broken memories lead him on a journey he never bargained for with a beautiful, young Asian man named Kira.
First, I think I need to point out that even though there is a female on the cover, this is NOT a heterosexual romance. It is part of an ongoing series by different authors, which all share the same cover, so please don’t let the cover keep you from reading this sexy, short story.
If you are looking for a quick, sexy read Behind the Jade Tiger will definitely fit the bill. I was immediately swept up into the lives of these two men and was fascinated as I watched how things panned out.
Jordan wants to go to a gay bar because he’s heard somewhere that is the best place to go to pick up women. When he arrives, he is immediately swept off of his feet by the sexy and very male, Kira. At first, he tells himself he’s just going to play along with Kira’s advances, but as the night progresses, Jordan realizes that he’s more than a little attracted to Kira and is faced with the decision of what he should do about it.
I really liked this book. Jordan is misguided in some ways, but he’s a likeable hero. I liked the chemistry between he and Kira and understood why Jordan was so enamored with Kira in the first place. (When you read it, you’ll see that Kira is totally adorable!) I actually liked them so much, I hated to see their story come to an end. I so wish that this had been a full length novel, but it’s not. It is a very satisfying read and an easy story to recommend.
