I just loved this story!  =)  First it has the plot that I like to read best, the smaller guy being the dominant or top and the bigger guy liking to bottom.  There’s just something that appeals to me about the manly man being on that role.

But Rodney is not a wimp by any stretch of the imagination.  Yes, he’s an artist, yes, he’s skinny, but he doesn’t lack strength.  He’s even a black belt in karate.  Rodney is out and proud and anyone walking by him would know he was gay.

Hunter is a firefighter, he’s out but he tries to not be too obvious about his preferences.  That’s why he chooses to date Jerry.  Jerry is Rodney’s friend, a surfer, and the last guy you would think was gay.  Which is just what Hunter thought he was looking for.

That is until Jerry convinces Hunter to pose for Rodney and things only heat up from there.  Their chemistry is great and they just have a raw passion that sucks you in.  They have so much in common that their connection goes beyond the physical into something believable that could be lasting and work.

This was a great short read and I can’t wait to read the next one!

About Tara Lain

Tara Lain never met a beautiful boy she didn’t love – at least on paper. A writer of erotic romance, mostly ménage and male/male, Tara loves all her characters, but especially her handsome heroes. A lifelong writer of serious non-fiction, Tara only fell in love with EROM in 2009 and, through perseverance and lots of workshops, had the first novel she ever wrote accepted for publication in 2010. She’s now on book fourteen and counting. After an exotic life of travel all over the world and work in television, education and advertising, Tara settled in Southern California with her soul-mate husband and opened her own small marketing business. She paints, collages, and started practicing yoga “way before it was fashionable”. Passionate about diversity, justice, inclusion and new ideas she says on her tombstone it will read, “Yes”.

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
