Ever been on a bad date? Hold my beer…
My dry spell isn’t voluntary. It just happened. Or didn’t happen. And then… it didn’t happen some more.
I’m not saying I’m looking for perfection, but is hot, sweaty sex with a genuinely decent guy too much to ask?
When I meet the much older and newly retired Master Sergeant Carter Willis, he definitely fits my criteria. But after he rescues me from the worst of my dating mistakes, I can’t tell if he’s watching my back to protect it, or because he likes what he sees.
Giving romance tips to strangers is easy. This feeling I get when Carter is around is making life complicated. It feels like a thing. A forever type thing.
And if there’s one thing that scares me more than my accidental abstinence becoming a permanent condition… It’s trusting in forever.
This was a nice surprise! This was funny with a sweet romance and some crazy hot dirty talk.
JD doesn’t believe in love at first sight. Or even lust at first sight. That’s why he is very surprised to stop in his tracks when he sees the gorgeous older man across the bar one night. JD likes his favorite bar even more now. When he gets introduced through mutual acquaintances, he finds out the guy’s name is Carter, and he’s a former drill sergeant.
But when the night ends JD still hasn’t got his phone number, so he leaves alone thinking it wasn’t meant to be. And that’s when he gets dragged into an alley behind the bar and attacked by two men. Luckily Carter is there to rescue him and ends up taking JD home with him…
There was some lovely hurt/comfort in this. But I can’t say it took over the story, because this revolved mostly around geeky JD and his funny quirkiness, not necessarily about him getting hurt. But it was a nice bonus.
I loved how sweet these guys were with each other, but how they could totally let go in the bedroom as well. We got some very smoking bedroom scenes here..
I do have to admit that the way JD acted towards the end was annoying
- (he ran away when things got serious and hid at his brother’s for a few weeks).
