Wow what a couple of screwed up characters; first we have John who was a 2 Gold Olympian in the sport of diving. John had an unfortunate accident where he hit his head on the diving platform during a dive, he then got back up on the board and walked right off the side of the platform hitting his head again on the pool wall. Then we have Mason who lost the love of his life, Alex in a car accident, while Mason was driving, so we have quite a bit of guilt. Sex, well John was pretty inexperienced he was sort of subservient to a guy that he toured with while diving. The oral sex was strictly one sided on the gratification scale and it wasn’t tipped in John’s favor. Suffice it to say having a boyfriend and all Mason had the sex thing down pretty good.
John’s injury has caused John to have bad reactions to sudden movements, flashing lights and loud noises. John now uses a cane to help him keep his balance. The other thing about John is that he sees colors around people, we can call it Aura’s. John can tell by looking at these auras what the person is feeling.
John was alone and wanted to go out and meet some fellow college students. He found a flyer for an Environmental Club party so he went, turns out it was the wrong party he stumbled in to. Not a bad mistake when looking back. While standing against the wall watching some guys playing beer pong he notices that he is being “cruised” upon by a fellow male party goer. Now John and Mason have met. While John is looking at Mason he notices that Mason has 2 different color auras around him, something he has never seen before. The sexy part starts at this point when the guys meet.
Before I go any further I want to do a couple of summations, I do not want to provide any spoilers.
This book tells the story of 2 guys with lots of baggage that come together and learn to accept the others pasts. Can they do this with a 3rd character in their bed and in their house? Can John learn to live with the colors and learn to control them? Can Mason overcome his guilt of Alex’s death? Can John accept the fact that Alex was the love of Mason’s life?
The story is really good, this is another book that you won’t want to put down and I haven’t even told you about the sex yet. The Author K.A. Mitchell sure knows how to write a stimulating sex scene and there is a bit of kink also. Just because the sex was good, I’ll mention it again.
This is book 1 of 1 in the Fragments series.
