Alec is a young medical professional who has just bought his first Harley motorcycle. Dylan is a freewheeling antique motorcycle restorer. When Alec realizes that he has gotten in over his head purchasing the motorcycle, and needs some instruction on the simple basics of starting and riding his Harley, he calls on Dylan to give him a few lessons on the intricacies of the bike. What starts as a very strange and awkward friendship, develops into a relationship of trust and care. Added into the mix are a common friend, Noah, who doesn’t understand the attraction, and is not supportive of the friendship, and an ex-boyfriend, Tyler, who cannot accept the fact that these two opposites could be attracted. The premise of the story begins when Dylan acts as Alec’ boyfriend for a party after meeting Tyler and his new boyfriend. Protectiveness in Dylan for Alec starts the whole situation in motion. What follows is a rollercoaster ride of romance, hidden secrets, and eventual acceptance.
River Jaymes has written an easy to read but hard to put down book that made me laugh, cry, get frustrated at the two main characters, angry at the secondary characters, and eventually left me wanting more, and very excited to see what Book 2 will be like. I really like the way Ms. Jaymes writes. There is no redundancy, no unnecessary descriptions, and no extra paragraphs to drag the story out. It moves at a quick pace, and continues through the entire book. Her uncanny understanding of male/male romance and sex has made this a steamy, well written book that keeps the reader excited, enthralled, and engaged in the characters. I loved the book, and highly recommend it to M/M romance readers.
