This was a pretty short, light and humorous read.  Maybe not the type of humor I like to see as it was a bit more over the top and bordering on “Really? Did he just say/do that?” but it was entertaining for sure.

David recently came out of a bad relationship. He was dating a guy who was still in the closet but who was also abusive. He hasn’t really dated since, but a couple of Australian volley ball players catch his eye when they are in town.

Gareth and David make a cute couple I just thought everything was done a bit too fast.  Gareth’s first approach was very forward and after a couple of dates they were talking about love and him moving to the US and leaving his whole life in Australia and his volley ball team behind. That felt like a bit much.

Then there’s the threesome. That felt a bit like it was added as an afterthought, although it was hot.

I am still curious to read the next book!

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 get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

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.

I did enjoy reading Volley Balls BUT I REALLY enjoyed the second in this series, Fire Balls. Something about a smaller guy being so damn dominate *growls*.

Start at the top of your wish list, with no budget in mind.
This is because cool colors absorb light rather than reflect it, in the
way warm colors do. There are actually expensive looking appliances made of stainless steel which
are not that costly at all.

As the villages and hamlets are small, everything is
close-by, including the ski-lifts and the train. Note: If you
seriously love your dog then it should be common sense about
protection. When you slip them on, you can rest assured that you
are putting on something that has been subjected to unique treatment of
its fibres to render them such that they are light, breathable and at the same time comfortable enough to wear for
long periods of time.

It is also vital to have multiple copies of an updated, professional
resume. With an immigration lawyer at your side, the process would definitely be smoother and has a higher chance to be successful.

It does not have to be an immaculate show home but it should appear to be homely and appealing to the
average buyer.

There are far too many out there to just search through each
day. You can even check out the customer reviews, and
start availing more information, about those products. Do a simple
search on Google or Amazon for a keyword like “dog supplements”
and instantly you will get hundreds of thousands of results.

This is especially useful if the person you’re inquiring about has a less
than common name. The combination of your logo and tagline should appear on every page to
create a sense of cohesion. However, there are certain things which can assist you differentiate which one is best and which is not.
