I really enjoy reading books for Sunday Shorts, it lets me get a feel for how the author writes and tells a story. In some ways a Short Story, Novelette or Novella can be more difficult to write, you need to grab the reader with Main Characters, the world setting of the story, some romance and sex and do this all within 100 pages or less.
Ethan put together a really good and fun read. It takes us on a journey of sex for the first time, with a real guy and not toys. An accidental homicide that sends Adam on the run as he knows that he will be blamed and it would literally mean the end of his life.
Adam and his childhood friend are in Vegas on business for Adam’s Father. Adam also has another goal, to have sex with a man and that is where we meet Javi. The characters are very sexy together, Javi is a hustler that Adam hired to take his virginity and Javi is the man that helps Adam in his run from the law. There was a point in the story where Adam even questions himself about how he can be thinking about sex when there are people out to kill him. I sort of chuckled at this and here’s why; Adam and Javi are both 18 and Adam has just discovered the pleasures of gay sex, I actually think that put in any scenario the room would be sexually charged between these guys.
I liked this book, the pace was quick and I felt very vested in the storyline. There are times I finish a story and feel OK, that was good and that is about it. When I finished this book, I wanted more, not in the sense that this book left me hanging, more in the sense that this could make a really great Novel.
