Travis hired 1 Night Stand hoping for a hot encounter with a sexy older, hairy man, someone to make him feel safe and cherished, and John looks custom made to order.

After losing his partner three years ago, John needs to learn how to open his heart and live again. He thinks a one night stand in the Caribbean might be the answer, but when he sees the young, thin and much smaller Travis, he thinks the agency sent the wrong man.

Can desire overcome misunderstanding when these two bear it all? Or will both men walk away from exactly what they need and desire?

Ooooh, this is a short very steamy read about two men who use a matchmaking service. Travis wants a bear – a big hairy real man – and Madame Eve of 1NightStand delivers with six-foot-five inches of rippling hair-covered muscle.

42-yr-old John wants …. well, he wants someone who looks just like his partner, who died 3 years ago, i.e. 35-50 years old, dark haired, fit and tall. But as Mick and the boys so eloquently say “You can’t always get what you want. But if you try sometime you find you get what you need.” And what John needs is a lean lightly-muscled blue-eyed black-haired insatiable 25-yr-old twink. What follows is one night of off-the-chain steamy sex, thoroughly, extensively and explicitly described, and the start of a promising future for John and Travis.

Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.  Frederick Douglas

I distinctly remember that day in school when, all of a sudden, those squiggles on the page made sense and I could read. It has changed my life in ways I still cannot comprehend.

My favorite M/M tropes are friends-to-lovers, murder/mysteries, amnesia, hurt/healing and historicals. Shifters, vampires, paranormal? Meh … not in my wheelhouse, but I’m a sucker for a well-written well-plotted book, no matter the genre.

Favorite authors includes Brandon Witt, Rick R. Reed, Abigail Roux, Jay Northcote, JL Merrow, KJ Charles, Lane Hayes, Marshall Thornton and so many more.
