Dirty Laundry (Tucker Springs #3) by Heidi Cullinan

The course of true love doesn’t always run clean. But sometimes getting dirty is half the fun.

Entomology grad student Adam Ellery meets Denver Rogers, a muscle-bound hunk of sexy, when Denver effortlessly dispatches the drunken frat boys harassing Adam at the Tucker Springs laundromat. Thanking him turns into flirting, and then, much to Adam’s delight, hot sex over the laundry table.

Though Denver’s job as a bouncer at a gay bar means he gets his pick of geek-sexy college twinks, he can’t get Adam out of his head. Adam seems to need the same rough play Denver does, and it’s damn hard to say no to such a perfect fit.

Trouble is, Adam isn’t just shy: he has obsessive compulsive disorder and clinical anxiety, conditions which have ruined past relationships. And while Denver might be able to bench-press a pile of grad students, he comes from a history of abuse and is terrified of getting his GED. Neither Denver nor Adam want to face their dirty laundry, but to stay together, they’re going to have to come clean.

3/5 stars

I have mixed thoughts on this book. Mixed because I liked the story, I liked the characters and I liked the issues facing them as a couple. What I didn't like was the BDSM element and that's only because that is not my thing. Some kink is okay with me, but I just didn't like some of the things they did. Also, taking pictures of their scenes on a cell phone was just bad, though I see why it was done and it did move the story to a new level or at least their relationship to a higher level. It was nice to see characters from previous books. I always like getting to see their lives beyond their HEA. Hopefully there will be more Tucker Springs books.
