When Simon walks into Jay’s bar for a drink, he never expects to find himself having an afternoon quickie in the back room. Although attracted to the hot bartender, Simon’s never had a real relationship and isn’t ready for that kind of commitment.
Jay is ready for Mr. Right, and when he meets hot, hunky Simon, he believes he’s found his match. But convincing the reserved man that their brief encounter could become something more will take all his persuasive skills.
Jay is blue collar Irish. Simon is from an African American society family. Can two men from such different backgrounds find common ground? Undeniable magnetism attracts them, but only love can keep them together.
Holy cow, was this book hot right from the very start. Jay and Simon are some totally unforgettable guys and I loved hearing about them get together.
I have a particular affinity for interracial stories because I don’t think there’s enough of them.
Jay is a bar owner whose life is turned upside down when sexy ass African American Simon comes into his place. Simon has been hiding his sexuality his entire life because he’s afraid of how his uptight and upper class will react. Jay is out, despite his Irish American family’s reactions.
Jay wants Simon right away and convinces him to go into the back room for a quickie. This and all sex scenes were scorching. Dee certainly knows how to write a good fucking. I liked that it wasn’t all sweet and romantic because that wasn’t what these guys would’ve done. The hard core, wall banging sex was fitting for these guys.
I liked that this story wasn’t high on angst. And the conflicts were realistic and family based.
This was a realistic story about two men who shouldn’t belong together but can’t stay apart.
Richard Franklin did a good job with these characters. All the voices were distinct and I had no problem telling them apart. I haven’t listened to him before but I certainly would again.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
