Some decide to give up working for Maggie in order to start a new life. Others decide to embrace the craft, further expand their client list, and give up more of themselves for the opulent lifestyle they’ve grown accustomed to. A once simple Austin is convinced to push past his preconceived preferences and conservative ideas on sexuality when Maggie offers him a bit of a promotion. No sooner does he get Hermosa to see him as more than friend, than do influenced ideas start blurring his beliefs, leading him to not being completely honest with her. The changes in his life have him confiding in someone new, and unexpected feelings develop. He soon finds himself questioning who he is, what he really wants, and whether or not you can be in love with two people at once.

Reconciling the cost of what he’s lost with vain gain becomes a fulltime mental battle. And when he realizes that his every move is controlled by which strings the two powerful women in his life choose to pull any given day, the damage has already been done. ...

late nights in l a book 2 descension Reviews
I enjoyed the first book in this series, but I think I actually like the second installment, Descension, more. The first book had to set the story up, lay down the premise, and allow you to get to know the characters. This book feels tighter and more compact. In the first book, even though AJ was still clearly the main character, each of the guys who worked for Maggie had bits of story line. In the second book the focus becomes narrowed down on just AJ and Austin, which I like. When we first met AJ and Austin at the beginning of book one, they were both fairly regular, well-rounded guys. Over the course of the second book, you witness these two young men’s descent into people they don’t really recognize, especially AJ. After allowing Maggie to persuade him to end things with Anjanae at the end of book one, AJ is depressed and regretting his decision. In the midst of his low point, he meets a very famous and world-beloved young pop singer, and things get lower. It really goes to show how different relationships can bring out different sides you; some lovers lead you to love like you never knew love to be before, and some lovers provoke you in ways you never knew you could be provoked. The contrast between AJ’s romance with Anjanae versus his romance with Kadence is like night and day. He feels used by everyone around him (Maggie, his girlfriend, his clients) and begins to go down a path of self-destruction. While Austin manages to keep his head, Maggie is still manipulating much of his life, and has him doing things for money he never thought he would.
