Love’s the last thing you expect to find in the trash.

A Serving Love story.

Elliot Graham doesn’t make mistakes. So when he ends up serving community service at a recycling plant for inadvertently buying stolen property, he’s certain it’s the worst thing that’s ever happened to him. That is, until he finds tickets to a sold-out concert in the trash, tickets that immediately disappear into the pocket of the hottest—and most exasperating—guy he’s ever met.

Cade McKuen has never been one to follow society’s expectations. That’s why he’s serving time sorting trash for destroying his cheating ex-lover’s car rather than apologize. Finding those tickets is an unexpected bonus to an otherwise smelly sentence. But when cute, sputtering Elliot claims a share, Cade decides community service might be the best thing that’s happened to him all year.

Cade is determined to keep Elliot off balance and tap into the passion he senses is hidden under that buttoned-down exterior. Elliot is fascinated by Cade’s outrageous way of thumbing his nose at the world.

Opposites attract, but can passion be the ticket to something lasting?

My View:

This was an awesome short story with a couple guys I absolutely loved.

Elliot Graham and Cade McKuen meet while serving community service, Elliot for accidentally buying stolen items and Cade for damaging his ex’s car. Elliot and Cade argue when Elliot finds tickets to a sold out concert.

Elliot and Cade are polar opposites. Elliot are more button down while Cade lives life a bit more on the edge. Despite that, there is an instant attraction between them. This results in them going out in Cade’s clunker of a vehicle which then breaks down. The sex scene in the car is one of the hottest scenes I’ve read in a long time.

Their banter is absolutely hilarious.

“If we were in your SUV, you’d already be dropping me off.” Cade slid a hand up Elliot’s inseam. “Not getting off.”

“You got crackers to go with a line that cheesy?”

I also liked the way the guys spoke to each other. There was a genuine frankness when, especially when it came to sex.

“After you fuck me? That is where we’re headed, right? ‘Cause I got about three hours of sleep last night and if I don’t have a better offer I’m taking a nap.”

This is how guys speak to each other. It’s not always sweet talk, as romantic as that is.

Though Elliot has fooled around with guys before he hasn’t topped. He’s nervous about telling Cade that but does open up. Cade sweetly takes his time and teaches Elliot what he needs to know. It was great having an inexperienced guy not instantly be an expert in bed just from watching porn. It resulted in sweet and erotic sex scenes.

This is a quick read that I recommend every reader take a look at.
