Can a forty-two year old truck driver who chases twinks, and a young-looking forklift operator searching for a mature relationship find common ground?
Trev Harding is a forty-two year old truck driver who loves having sex with a different twenty-something year old every night. The only exception to this is one-time trick Grant Hess, a mid-thirties forklift operator who could pass for twenty-three. Trev's life takes a startling turn when he's told by a twenty-one year old that people see him as a dirty old man. Trev is forced to do some soul-searching and asks Grant for advice. Their friendship blossoms, and Trev decides it's time to try something new. And he knows just the man to do it with---Grant.
Well, this wasn't really what I expected it to be. What I expected was a smutfest, based on the blurb, and what I got was really a sad tale of a truck driver in his forties who's been chasing young tail for too long and prides himself on never doing the same guy twice. Relationships are a waste of time, and not for him.
Trev Harding, as you can tell from the blurb, is a 42 year old truck driver, who likes to take young, trim 20-something men for a joyride on his dick. He doesn't care much about where these rides take place, and while he does realize he's getting older, he kind of pushes those thoughts down. Until his latest trick, after a pity fuck in the bathroom, basically tells him that all the young guys in his favorite hangout are laughing at him, calling him a dirty old man. What a wake-up call.
The writing was good. It's gritty and raw, with language fitting for the person that was telling his tale. It sounded believable, if a little too quick, that the main character changes his personal outlook on his life. I liked that the main character gets to experience a bit of growth, and I liked Grant as well, the "trick" that turns into a friend and then more.
For as short as this was, the author really put a good amount of character exploration into this tale, and allowed Trev to learn the difference between simple sex and making a connection with someone, and how intimacy can enhance the experience a thousand times. And while we only experience Grant through Trev's eyes, I was glad that he wasn't a pushover or a doormat either, and gave back as good as Trev dished out.
There are no minced words here and no purple prose, just the honest account of a guy who still has a lot to learn.
Not bad. Not bad at all.
