Blurb:
Blue’s summer is heating up in more ways than one. When he befriends Dusty Sterling, he sees the opportunity to give his master Derek their first true threesome. But first, Blue must meet a requirement issued by Derek.

Derek is content with Blue as his exclusive lover, but when offered the chance to bring the beautiful Dusty into their bedroom, Derek's definitely tempted. He agrees to Blue’s idea under one condition—it’s Blue who must seduce Dusty.

Blind since birth, Dusty is proud, independent, and knows what—and who—he wants. In need of temporary shelter, he accepts an offer to stay with Derek and Blue. The fact that he finds them both attractive doesn’t hurt, but Dusty must let his hosts in on a secret—his unique and sometimes frightening way of “seeing.”

When Dusty’s nightmares reflect a pair of real-life murders, Blue uses his connections with the police to bring Dusty in on the case. The friends grow closer both in and out of the bedroom, but their bond will truly be tested by the evil that lurks in plain sight.

Bottom line up front:
Blue didn't annoy me as much as he did the last two books. Horny little bastage.

The rest:
Blue is back again, and the bodies are piling up as usual. And, as usual, there's yet another toy in the bed.

Blue finally meets pretty Dusty, the pretty silver-haired kid Derek was drooling over in the last story. By magical coincidence, he's Jodi's neighbor. Blue remembers how hard Derek was staring at Dusty, and decides to give his master a gift wrapped pressie. Of course, he's attracted to Dusty as well, so it's win all around.

Dusty isn't just blind...he sees dead people. Well, he has premonitions of little gay boys getting murdered by whoever was copycatting Zack. You know, the guy from the other books who was killing kids who looked like Blue? Well, Zack is in the process of going to prison, and the murders haven't stopped. Dusty can see what happens as it's happening, which unfortunately isn't soon enough to actually save anyone. In between all these macabre visions, he's getting sucked and fucked by Blue while Derek watches and rubs one out all by himself.

BR4 was a bit different than the others in that the M/s relationship between Derek and Blue was a bit more fuzzy. Derek tied the kids up, but more for their fun and pleasure than anything. Blue was pretty much running the show throughout the story, with a sort of half-assed reining in of Blue's wilder tendencies by Derek.

Need You Tonight is a cute and fluffy book. Light, airy, no real substance, and everything tied up neatly in a bow by the end. No harm, no foul, and we're all happy friends. The contrast from the last few intense books I read was startling. I think I would have enjoyed the read more if I were looking for something sweet and easy, but I really enjoyed the last few epics and this book was pure Chinese food...great tasting, but surprisingly unfulfilling, yanno?

Still, if you're a fan of our favorite Bluenette, or just need a fun and fluffy book to aid and abet your post crazy holiday mental escapism, BR4 will fit the bill nicely.

The cover would put me--and others off, I think. I know that Big Seme, tiny Uke is a staple for yaoi lovers but the cover just says "kid botherer" to me.

That's my problem with Dusty on the cover, lol. I know he has light grey eyes, but the art got faded or lost in translation somewhere, because they look pure white. The overall effect is of a terrified kid. I like PL Nunn's art, but she really needed to go in and fix that.

Blue, otoh, is just pretty.

It looks to me like the scene from A Christmas Carol where the ghost of Christmas Present reveals the two starveling children under his robes!!

Dunno. Didn't really get the feeling of danger, especially since I already knew Derek was on the way, and there's another book, so no way could Blue get killed off. Was more annoyed at the dude for interrupting the smexing and scaring Dusty than anything.

So...yeah. Foofy :P

ETA: will be picketing for Jodi-chan to get a few playtoys of her own. She's definitely earned them. And she hangs out with Blue, so has permanent...blue balls? or whatever the gurly equivalent of that is, LOL.
