Bennett “Ben” Pachowski has been a bouncer at Throwbacks for years. He likes his job, though he gets tired of being thought of as more brawn than brain simply because of his size. He also prefers to be romanced before sleeping with a man.
Ben’s favorite band, Rebel’s Ultimatum, occasionally plays at the club, which gives him an eyeful of the sexy bass player, Monty Mabuse. They’ve been eyeing each other for months, though Ben is content to flirt and nothing more, since “commitment” seems a foreign concept to the selfish, arrogant and flirtatious bass player.
But Monty wants Ben to become the next notch on his bedpost, and a devious trick to get what he wants blows up in his face.
Will Ben be able to forgive Monty for his deception? Perhaps, but if Monty wants to have a relationship with Ben, he needs to make some changes, and it remains to be seen whether he can become the kind of man Ben will respect, let alone love.
Sometimes, a little romance goes a long way…
This was a quickie, less that 50 pages. I picked it up to cleanse my palate after being blown away by Rattlesnake. It wasn’t long enough to have any kind of character development, but it got the job done of getting me ready to read one of my longer books without Rattlesnake in my head.
Ben Pachowski is a bouncer with a heart of gold. He don’t sleep around, preferring to save sex for monogamous relationships, he keeps the riff-raft out of Throwbacks, the club where e works and he ever reads to senior citizens on his off hours at a retirement community. Enter rock star bad boy Monty Mabuse who thinks Ben is all that and a bag of chips, and it makes for one miss-matched coupling.
Short, a little far-fetched but pretty good read none-the-less. A nice palate cleanser after a long, heavy read.
