Book Blurb

Treat Daniels is the newest trainer in The Gym while James Christian has been working there since they opened the doors. The attraction between them is immediate and intense. When James is injured and calls for help, Treat can’t help but respond, which starts a hot and heavy affair.

Love is in the air as they work with their clients, and each other. The only problem is, James won’t discuss their relationship at The Gym, leaving Treat to wonder if he’ll ever be able to tell the world they’re together. 

Then James takes on a new client who tries her damnedest to come between them. Will she cause a rift they can’t overcome? Will Treat get James to talk about their relationship at work? Or will Treat have to learn to live in the closet with his man? 


Book Review

‘Iron Lust’ is a pretty good title for this story on two counts: first, it is about the lust between two men that develops into way more than either of them suspected to be possible, and two, it is set in a gym and both men “pump iron” on a daily basis. Treat and James are bodybuilders and if you’re seeing hot, sweaty interactions in your mind’s eyes right now – that is exactly what most of this book is about.James is older, has been at The Gym for a while, and while he admits (to himself) that he is bi, he can’t see himself coming out. Treat is a new trainer, very forward, and while he doesn’t plan to come out either, he is far less opposed to the ides in principle. The strong attraction they feel for each other explodes into an affair pretty quickly, but sorting out what they want to do about it and how open they will be takes a little longer.If you like your romances on the erotic side, if you enjoy simple, straightforward stories that are entertaining, and if you’re looking for some hot and heavy activities in the gym, at home, in hotels, and pretty much anywhere else you can think of, then you might like this novella.DISCLAIMER: Books reviewed on this site were usually provided at no cost by the publisher or author.
