“I guess I always figured coming out was something you did for friends and family, and maybe it is, but it’s personal too, you know? The person I was last night is new. I wanna get to know him.”
I had two things on my list when I arrived in Los Angeles. One, track down Henry Bennington, the uncle and guardian of my little brother’s best friend, and tell him to get his ass back to Washington. He needed to do something about his nephew, who was turning into a douchebag. And two, figure out just how non-straight I was. For the past two years, I’d had all these fantasies, and now was the time to explore them, far away from my sleepy little town.
Nowhere on this list did it say, “Get Ty’s uncle into bed and fall for him.” I wasn’t supposed to fall in love with another city either. But between brunch, making new friends, and discovering the man I was meant to be, I lost sight of the future that had once seemed pretty damn vivid. How the hell was I supposed to merge my old life and who I used to be with the new dreams Los Angeles and Henry had awakened in me?
"Shhh, darling. You don't want to wake up your brother, do you? It's probably best only I know what a perfect ass-slut you are for me."
I honestly wasn't expecting this book to be my kind of dirty. I love domination games and age gaps, and the mix of sweet and extremely raunchy is just my thing. But it tends to be a little more... extreme than some people like, but this book struck just a right balance to take it to that ohmygodyes level of kink without alienating non-kink readers.
I adored this one, and not JUST for the sex, though I'll admit that the sex was a BIG part of it. I loved the coming out story, the dynamic between the two MCs, and, yes, the age gap and the difference in experience.
The plot was perfectly paced. Fast, interesting, and with really entertaining side characters. I just couldn't get enough. I felt the So-Cal heat, the luxury lifestyle, and the complex relationships. I was just there with the MCs... and THE SEX!
This is only my second Cara Dee book, and the first that I've really enjoyed. And I enjoyed the hell out of this one. The dirty talk alone makes it worth it.
