The course of true love doesn’t always run clean. But sometimes getting dirty is half the fun.
Entomology grad student Adam Ellery meets Denver Rogers, a muscle-bound hunk of sexy, when Denver effortlessly dispatches the drunken frat boys harassing Adam at the Tucker Springs laundromat. Thanking him turns into flirting, and then, much to Adam’s delight, hot sex over the laundry table.
Though Denver’s job as a bouncer at a gay bar means he gets his pick of geek-sexy college twinks, he can’t get Adam out of his head. Adam seems to need the same rough play Denver does, and it’s damn hard to say no to such a perfect fit.
Trouble is, Adam isn’t just shy: he has obsessive compulsive disorder and clinical anxiety, conditions which have ruined past relationships. And while Denver might be able to bench-press a pile of grad students, he comes from a history of abuse and is terrified of getting his GED. Neither Denver nor Adam want to face their dirty laundry, but to stay together, they’re going to have to come clean.
This title is part of the Tucker Springs universe.
Original review posted at GoodReads on January 27, 2013. (Yes, I was a Heidi Cullinan virgin back then) Re-read September 2015: It was so much fun to visit Denver and Adam and Lousia again! I love this book. Hard.
Holy shit, this one came out of left field for me. So many friends are huge fans of Heidi Cullinan and gobbled this book up on release day and slapped 5 stars on it, that I had to see what all the fuss was about. Well, I see now!
Adam and Denver, two beautifully imperfect souls, could not be more perfect for each other and I hung on every interaction between the two as they slowly fell in love. But don’t judge this book by its cover. This one is pretty bad, in my opinion. My Adam and Denver look quite different in my head. *dreamy sigh*
If you like lots of angst, dirty, nasty, kinky, fabulous sex in public places, a strong Dom with a bossy attitude, good old fashion BDSM, spoiled ex-boyfriends, and rainbow inducing HEA’s, then I can HIGHLY RECOMMEND this fabulous book.
Now if you will excuse me, I’m off to raid . *rubs hands together*
