When your deepest, darkest fantasy shows up, get on board.
Sam Keller knows he’ll never find the excitement he craves in Middleton, Iowa—not while he’s busting his ass in nursing school and paying rent by slaving away in a pharmacy stockroom. Then Sam meets Mitch Tedsoe, an independent, long-haul trucker who makes a delivery to a shop across the alley. Innocent flirting quickly leads to a fling, and when Mitch offers to take him on a road trip west, Sam jumps at the chance for adventure. Mitch is sexy, funny and friendly, but once they embark on their journey, something changes. One minute he’s the star of Sam’s every x-rated fantasy, the next he’s almost too much a perfect gentleman. And when they hit the Las Vegas city limit, Sam has a name to pin on Mitch’s malady: Randy.
For better or for worse, Sam grapples with the meaning of friendship, letting go, growing up—even the meaning of love—because no matter how far he travels, eventually all roads lead home.
I’ve now read this four times and each time I fall just a little more in love with Sam and Mitch and all their sexy shenanigans.
Wow, this one is just chock full of sex and kink – a little dominance, a little exhibition, the desire to be used and feel like a whore with a side helping of humiliation…well, yeah, the sex in this is pretty steamy.
There are also quite a few mind games played once Randy comes on the scene. Look, I’m just going to say it – I’m not a fan of Randy. I sort of wish he never showed up, even though he propels Mitch and Sam’s relationship forward by providing some necessary pushing and as much as I hate to admit it, he’s totally necessary to solidifying their relationship. And he sort of grows on me a little more every time I read this.
As for the narration, I felt like Iggy Toma really captures the characters so well. I loved his character voices for everyone, even when I was cringing while listening to Randy be all mind fuck and smarmy.
I enjoy the whole story: the characters, the plot, the humor…but it’s the ending of this that always brings me back for more. *sighs* Man, I love that ending.
