A trucker meets a very young and innocent, dare I say “perfect” submissive, during one of his cross-country trips in Iowa. The young boy, Sam, has experienced several recent setbacks and continues to try and make it in an un-gay friendly environment. When he meets Mitch by chance, he finally steps out of his comfort zone and starts living his own life – on his terms.
This story is well-written with great character development. You feel what Sam and Mitch feel, which is great, as the story is told from both points of view. You get inside their heads and want to yell at them when they make wrong choices, laugh with them at an inside joke, but most of all, you feel involved with their relationship.
There is SEX in this book… lots of it. Lots of detailed M/M sex, experimentation, Dominance/submission, and more. At some points, the sex dominants (no pun intended!) the story line, but just when you think you want to skip a few pages or put it down for a break, the plot picks back up.
Overall, this book is a good read – it takes place in a “new” environment than most books – on the road; is focused on the relationship between two regular guys, and takes you along the journey of Sam coming into his own person.
Out of four…
Overall Read: ♥♥♥
Sex Heat: ♥♥♥
Read this if you are looking for a longer story to get involved with (it’s a series too!), a different/unique setting, a coming of age novel of sorts, or just plain sex – lots of it, lots of ways. Can you say voyeurism too?
Other authors/books to try (and why you’ll like them):
If you liked the first, the second brings back Sam and Mitch, and a new story forms. It’s a very different read, but another unique setting with the same characteristics that you’ll find in this one.
“Slow Bloom” is another long read, and the character development is very exciting to follow. There is sex, lots of hot sex in this, but also a great plot that you can dig into.
