Like most other guys his age, Trevor Nash just wants to escape his small town, go to college and get laid. It’s not his fault his parents are freaked out because his older brother went to college and binge drank himself to death. Trevor’s not going to do that, but they won’t let him go unless he stays with his godfather, Marine vet Grady McKinnon.
Grady’s come to appreciate a quiet life in Boston since an IED tore off his foot and forced his discharge, but he owes his oldest friend a lot. He agrees to the babysitting, provided Trevor sticks to a few basic rules.
It’s been five years since Trevor’s seen Grady, a long time in a teen’s life. Now Trevor is stunned to find out his muscled temporary guardian is a walking wet dream. Trevor has a new plan: get Grady’s attention, no matter how many rules he has to break to do it.
Warning: This book contains a pushy brat, a loner learning to like company, lots of spanking, and some desperate longing.
This story is not one of your conventional romances. Our MCs here are Grady, an ex-military in his 30s who is looking out for his 17 year old godson, who has just started college.
So, yeah you can tell that this is a taboo kind of relationship story which I enjoy very much. But here the pacing of the story was very slow. It got boring and repetitive and I almost dropped it but my innate desire to know how it finally ends kept me in line.
Grady is attracted to Trevor but he can’t do anything about it. So he indulges in anonymous hookups (which IMO was careless and irresponsible on Grady’s part given that he goes with unprotected sex). Trevor on the other hand also has the hots for the older guy but he is too scared to let it show.
Grady is strict and he wants to keep Trevor in line which means curfew at 10, no roaming around with friends and definitely no parties and his method of enforcing the discipline is plain, old spanking!
Oh yeah, there are lots of spankings, red butts and ‘taking over the knee’ situations in this story which was hot!! The relationship is kind of a slow-burn as Trevor explores his sexuality first time with someone other than his hand and Grady tries like hell not to take the spanking to the next level.
This story is part of a series as this book ends in a cliffhanger just when Grady breaches the line with Trevor ending in a fiery kiss with all sorts of promises of exploding passion to follow.
There is no romance in this one but it definitely managed to crank up the anticipation for the next book which I pray will finally show Grady and Trevor in a relationship with smoking passion. I can’t wait!!!
