For Sean Wright, driving a cab in the tiny Navy town of Anchor Point isn’t an exciting job . . . until he picks up just-dumped Paul Richards. A drive turns into a walk on the pier, which turns into the hottest hookup Sean’s had in ages.
After a long overdue breakup, Paul can’t believe his luck. Of all the drivers, he’s picked up by the gorgeous, gay, and very willing Sean. Younger guys aren’t usually his thing, but Paul can’t resist.
One taste and neither man can get enough . . . right up until they realize that Paul is Sean’s father’s commanding officer and the last man Sean should be involved with.
With two careers on the line, their only option is to back off. It’s not easy, though; the sex and the emotional connection are exactly what both men have been craving for a long time. But Paul has devoted twenty-four years to his career and his dream of making admiral. If he’s caught with Sean, that’s all over. He has to choose—stay the course, or trade it all for the man who drove off with his heart.
This starts with a breakup, followed by a one night stand between near strangers Sean and Paul.
I love a good May/December romance.
Just Drive works well as Paul and Sean initially begin seeing each other mainly for the truly terrific sex, but it slowly morphs into more as the two can’t stop thinking about each other and continue to come together.
The tension comes when the two realize, after they’ve already fallen for each other, that if their relationship is discovered it could literally mean the end of two careers. Despite the possible consequences, Paul and Sean find it impossible to stay away.
This could have been super angsty, but it’s not. I really liked the way Witt handled it, and it’s brilliantly narrated by Nick J. Russo.
If you’re a fan of Russo’s – this is definitely an audio that should get on your playlist. Great character voices with smooth pacing, and when you factor in the sweet story and sexy times – this was an enjoyable 7+ hours.
