Review: Negotiating Love (Sin City Uniforms #5) by Morticia Knight

Can the kinky billionaire owner of Dark Fantasy Resort Casino capture the heart of a muscled SWAT officer with a secret fetish?

SWAT Team Hostage Negotiator, Steve, wonders why he can’t stay away from the spoiled rich Allistair, owner of Dark Fantasy Resort Casino. They have mutual kinks - ones Steve can’t find with other lovers—but there’s something else about the emotionally detached, beautiful man that calls to him.

Billionaire Allistair stays alone in his luxury penthouse apartment at the top of Dark Fantasy, terrified of the real world and of opening himself up to genuine emotions. He takes lover after lover, all of them allowing him to do whatever he wants to their bodies, in the hopes that they can scam something from him.

One night is all he ever shares with a plaything—he knows they only want the money and luxury he can offer them and nothing more. But the down to earth Steve is different. They share the same kinks and are explosive when together. But could the muscled law officer ever want more than the lust-filled encounters that have become such an addiction?

As they grow closer, they discover they also have to find a balance between Steve’s everyday world and Allistair’s entitled world before they can truly find an ever after. They also have to make sure Allistair stays safe. Filthy rich playboys are too tempting to those who seek the ultimate payday—and who aren’t afraid of hurting someone to get it.


When the story starts Steve and Allister had been enjoying each other's company for some time. They shared some kinks and were sexually compatible. But Allister was your typical commitment-phobe and kept his guys at an arms length. Allister decided that he'd had enough of that and wanted Steve for keeps.  

Being the fifth book in the series, we'd met Steve previously. I'd liked him then and I continued to enjoy his character in his book. He's a relatable kinda guy, with a couple of delicious kinks he only shares with some. Allister is one of the few that had the pleasure of enjoying the sexy lace he likes to wear under his sexy uniform. 

Allister was a casino owner that comes off as a bit cold at first, but he's a big softie under that businessman exterior. He was used to people using him for his money so he had a hard time opening up and trusting people.

Since Steve was a big guy and -what was assumed- an "alpha" kind of guy, there were a lot of misunderstandings about Steve from his previous boyfriends and hookups. All the bottoms out there were barking up the wrong tree. Big SWAT guy is a big bottom and Allister pushed all the right buttons for him. He needed someone to make him let go of the stress of the job and that's exactly what Allister helped him to do.

They were hot together and had chemistry in and out of the bedroom. Allister swept him away for quality time together. Even though they already had somewhat of a relationship before the book started, they didn't really know each other. They took that time and it was sweet.

The suspense portion was not as prevalent in this book compared to others in the series, which is fine with me. The story focused more on the romance and that how I usually prefer romantic suspense.

You won't see me rushing out for the next book in the series, but Negotiating Love is a good choice for something light and easy, with a bit of kink.
