Stuck away from home on business, all Ryan can do is talk with his lover, Scott, on the phone. But the conservative Ryan finds no comfort in phone sex—he’s far too embarrassed. Fortunately, his playful lover has not only planned ahead, but he can think on his back as well. It turns out that the heart really is where good sex starts!

1st Edition published by Dreamspinner Press, 2010.


We’ve all heard the phrase, “He could read me the phonebook……” and know exactly what it means. Lane takes a spin of this and incorporates it in this rerelease of a 2010 novella. Ryan and Scott are in an established relationship, and Ryan has to travel……again……on his birthday. Scott isn’t so enthusiastic about the amount of travel time Ryan has been racking up, and he makes his displeasure known.

This was a short, 412 Kindle locations short, novella. But it was very cute and snarky and funny and sweet. Ryan and Scott take advantage of their time away from each other by getting inventive with phone sex, toys, and…. you guessed it!……even a phonebook.

What I loved the most is that they could make fun of each other about the “awkwardness” that can insert itself into phone sex. Dirty talk gone wrong, jokes when the other MC is just getting worked up, etc. I always enjoy how RL invades Lane’s stories, even these shorter ones. Recommended for Lane lovers.
