Aside from the explicit sex between two men this novella also contains some heavy-duty angst, so beware....
interesting little fact about this book: I had a different title at first, but a similar title in the same genre came out at the same time, so Elizabeth North from Dreamspinner Press came up with this new and far better one. Thank you kindly, Elizabeth!
I do have a tendency to write about guys who have serious attitude problems, and Zak is no exception. But Addy... I loved writing about Addy. He's just willful and verbally gifted, quick to
quip and swift to snap — and Zak won't know what hit him.
Their interactions were simply fun to write, and I hope they'll be fun to read, too. Enjoy!
Four Star Review by Long and Short Reviews:
"To start with, if I am honest, I wasn’t sure of this book, but then, once Zak and Addy
got chatting I was hooked. Ms Laine is a master of dialogue, it’s snappy, witty, funny, profound and completely moved the story along. The way Addy chats so much, Zak’s frequent closing down, it was a real treat to listen to their banter and conversations.
The sex was hot, super hot, but their relationship and the problems Zak in particular had with letting someone close was the theme of this story. A theme that was well handled and didn’t always give me what I expected. -- Recommended if you like m/m
that doesn’t focus on the gay issue, but instead explores the relationship of two strangers, with baggage, coming together in a physical and emotional way."
Review by Hearts on Fire Reviews:
away, at the very prologue, I was riveted to my seat with eyes firmly focused on the screen and the freaking hot scene happening at the back of a taxi. Addy experienced a life changing moment as he watched one man debauch the other in the most sexiest of ways.
The gorgeous stranger even while dressed captivated Addy, and became the driving force behind his future fantasies. A stranger who licked the other while seductively winking at a fifteen-year old in the next car. Oh yeah, it was very hot. I can totally see
how a teenager remembered it even years later. Six years after the event, Addy sees the man himself again, and refuses to let the opportunity slip by him. His flirting is direct and pushy, his smile promising and the overall attitude demanding. He knows
he must have Zak for real this time, even if it’s just a one night stand. -- The writing was almost poetic and suited me very much making the overall rating just half a star below four, after all, the book is just too good to get three stars. Susan
Laine is a new author for me, but if this experience is anything to go by, that won’t stay that way."
