This is the first book I have read by Nero and I have to say that I was very intrigued by the blurb and hesitant at the same time. It isn’t too often that I get the chance to read a book such as this and it isn’t for the faint of heart. The beginning of the book contains a trigger warning and all though I am not a reader who feels like these need to be done, in this case, it wasn’t such a bad idea. All in all, I was excited and a tad anxious to read this book, but so glad I did in the end. There are only a handful of male author’s out there, that write really well and Nero definitely falls into that category. Love of the Egoist is extremely well written, dark, gritty, gripping and painfully beautiful. The character development and storyline are engaging and heartbreaking. The author definitely has a way with words and bringing this story to light could not have been an easy task.

What happens when the man tasked with bringing those to justice becomes the captor and prey of those he hunts? Well, that is exactly what you get with this story. Kuon, a detective has been tasked with infiltrating a crime organization and with the help of his snitch, bring them down. Only the tables are turned and he becomes the captive. Now his survival is in the hands of Yugo, the “Black Duke” as he has been named. When his handling of Kuon crosses the line, Kun has to wonder if he will ever make it out of this alive or if he will have to bend to his captors will in order to survive.

Love of the Egoist is an extremely well written, gripping read that had me literally on the edge of my seat at times. I cannot wait to see what book two in this series brings. I am a huge sucker for M/M books and Nero delivers with this one. He has definitely gained a new fan. Again, this is not a story for the faint of heart and for those that are not a fan of M/M. If you are looking for a new author to read, and these criteria are not an issue, I suggest you grab a copy and sink into Love of the Egoist.
