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