Lance is a photographer who has an amazing job for an erotic deck of cards. Problem is, he can’t find anyone to do the model. That is until Tide and his two friends show up.
Lance, oh, Lance. He is one of my favorite characters. He’s so nervous and clumsy and shy, it is freaking adorable! Tyrone, Bran and Tide are all extremely sexy. I love how the three interacted. And Tide practically chasing Lance is fabulous! However, the romance is quick, hot but insta-love. The story didn’t have much action. It was a lot of sex and pictures of sex and then more sex. After the fourth or was it fifth sex scene it lost its appeal.
New Boy is an interesting look at a shy photographer and the sexy dom that claims him.
Peter is now a single dad of twins after his partner leaves him. In Alaska, with winter coming, he’s at the end of his wits. Life with babies is more than he thought it would be. There are bottles, diapers and crying and a house that’s trying to fall down around his ears. He’s finding it overwhelming. Chad is a Park Ranger who loves the silent stark beauty that is Alaska. And most times he loves the solitude but he feels it’s his duty to check on and warn Peter about the coming winter.
This is a sweet story and the characters run the full of a range of emotions. This author always writes great characters, I find them to be very real and three dimensional. I love him adding the twins in this story. There's also smoking hot sex. Anyone with children can relate to Peter and what he's going through with the twins. Chad is a little harder to read, he's lonely and thinks he's fine with it. But when given the chance he moves Peter and the twins in with him. Both characters are so great. This story is much sweeter than I would have expected from this author, who writes much more sex driven stories. And while the sex is hot, the emotional interaction between the characters seems to be the driving force. So while a good heartwarming story, this is not my favorite book by Sean Michael.
This is a second edition, check to make sure you don’t already have it. If you don’t, it’s a great snuggle under the blanket with a cup of hot tea read!
