This book was a surprisingly a light and funny read. Now do not get me wrong, there is a lot of sexy times in this book and there is a couple of references to some serious past trauma but for the most part this is a light, funny read in my opinion. From the blurb at the end of this book, this started out as a short story about David and Bradley but after great input from other readers of the short story, it turned into a book. I really enjoyed this book.
David is this carefree man that does not let the fact that he is not in perfect condition body wise get to him. He is happy with who he is and if someone does not like it then he wants no part of them. But the thing is, David has not always been this carefree. After a four year relationship with a man named Craig, it took a lot of time for him to get to the point he is at right now with who he is. David knows he will never let someone make him doubt who he is again.
After a hard week at work, David has decided to meet some of his friends at the local club and maybe find someone to spend the night with. What he never expected was to meet such an amazing man named Bradley.
Bradley is smitten with David almost immediately. What starts as a one night stand quickly turns into a long standing hookup. Neither man expected this but they both enjoyed each other company so much that they decided to keep seeing one another.
What neither man expected was to fall for the other. Can two men from very different backgrounds that started out as a one night stand find a way to turn things into a relationship?
