A naughty, M/M retelling of Goldilocks? You bet. I’m all over that like a cheap, polyester, possibly paisley printed shirt I envision one of them wearing.

From the Publisher
What is a young man to do when he accidentally stumbles upon the secret hideaway of three refugees from the law, who will do anything to keep their whereabouts unknown?
Young, rich, spoiled and naïve George Lattimer sets out to hitchhike Route 66 across the country in the summer of 1964. After a bad experience getting a ride, he finds himself lost in the Ozark wilderness and stumbles upon the lair of three large, hairy outdoorsmen, hiding from the U.S. Marshals. They are determined to keep their hideaway a secret at all costs.
For a novellette that looked to be firmly ensconced in the porn category from the blurb, I was surprised how feel good it was despite or possibly because I could hear the Bow-Chicka-Wow-Wow softly playing in the background.
Yes, there are aspects that are of the unbelievable variety like why a boy who’s on the cusp of taking the bar exam has never left Chicago AND has wealthy parents. Or why he has no car? Eh. Why ask why, I say. Just roll with it.
The cover is a bit misleading with all the leather harnesses suggestive of kinky bears. Alas, they were just furry and horny and on the run from the law. About the time the convertible Chevy Impala showed up I knew this was going to be a fun ride. It’s also set in 1964 so you know what that means, kids. Yap! Bareback with Vaseline. Über retro. Our Goldilocks a.k.a. George, it seems, has never really had a family and the three bears become that by taking him under their wing, teaching him how to fish, garden and live off the land which was both charming and endearing.
A quick, smutty feel good read. Did I mention one of the MC’s goes by Daddy? *eyebrow wiggle*
