ARC Review: Blowing Off Steam by Joy Lynn Fielding

Blowing Off Steam
From the blurb:

Two guys, a train, and lots of steam.

Sam Chancellor has been in love with the steam engine Old Bess since he was six years old. Well, maybe not literally, but even when he’s lost everything else in his life, he’s always had her. But now her place in his heart has been unexpectedly challenged. Her new driver, Ryan Saunders, is the embodiment of all Sam’s fantasies.

Ryan has written off Sam as just another geeky trainspotter—until the moment Ryan sees him without his usual shapeless hoodie, and realizes that for a nerd, Sam’s pretty built.

When Ryan overlooks Sam’s awkwardness long enough to suggest a hook-up, Sam seizes the opportunity—and Ryan—with both very eager hands. Finding common ground in their shared love of Bess, their time together is better than Sam ever dared dream.

But there’s a reason Ryan never talks about his past. And when Ryan's job is threatened, Sam’s well-meaning intervention puts both Ryan and Bess in deadly danger.

Heather's rating:

A cute, light read with geeks and a virgin. What could be bad about that?!

I enjoyed this little story, though I'm going to be honest, those train facts bored me to tears. I have a soft spot for a geeky MC, but train obsessed guys... yeah, not for me. In fact, I wasn't really into the plot in general, which is funny considering that I enjoyed the story a good deal.

Because, virgin.

The best part about this story was the enthusiastic, hot sex. I'm REALLY into a dorky guy who is hot but doesn't know he is hot. It is very "She's All That" of me. Sam was such a adorable little number, and I was rooting for his "walk down the stairs and show off his goods" moment.

I also liked Ryan, though I've read the story about the reformed rich brat with daddy issues many times before.

If you like train and virgins, then you should get this book. It is a fast, easy read that put a smile on my face, even if it didn't wow me. Even if trains don't do it for you, the light escapism of this story still might work.
