Blurb: Jacob and Nicholas are naval pilots and astronauts of the future. Jacob is recovering from an injury that’s left him with frequent vertigo and near-constant nausea, neither of which are doing anything to help his restless mood. Nicholas, however, is just glad that his husband is recovering, and is happy to be there for him while he does.
Review: Part of the Charity Sip Blitz package.
Wow, I want more from this story; I wasn’t more Jacob and Nicholas.
This was a first one for me in its theme. I haven’t had a naval pilot/astronaut before; admittedly, I liked this one a lot.
Jacob was a delightful character. His condition should have evoked pity from sadness, or me but oddly enough, it didn’t. I was a bit awed reading about him and his struggling through recovery, but mostly I liked Jacob to a point that, yes, I want another follow-up, longer this time story.
Another reason for that is the fact that his relationship with Nicholas (who btw is his husband) was on the kinky side, but it was so easily introduced, so easily narrated, that it was as if the writer was writing vanilla sex for crying out loud. It blends beautifully and the scene itself was not so much erotic as it was sweet, effortless, and sensual.
So, do you fault me for wanting a full on novel on these guys?
