Blurb: Sometimes a guy’s best angle is below the belt.
When David, a single father, vows to get laid just once before the year ends, he doesn’t figure on losing his cell phone—and with it one very revealing picture. Lucky for him, his phone is found by a disarmingly handsome man who might be perfect for the kind of casual Christmas fling David is after.
Go-go dancer Craig never would have guessed that the guy with the cute cock shot would turn out to be a doctor. Or that he’d find himself lying about his night job and worrying David will find out the truth. To complicate matters, each of their hook-ups requires days of planning. Yet before he knows it, Craig has a new boyfriend, and possibly a whole new family.
David’s ready to dive head-first into something new, but if Craig’s going to commit, he’ll need to come clean about his job, his past, and—most of all—the naughty picture that drew him to David in the first place.
Warning: Contains a male exotic dancer and extremely intimate photography. May contain traces of Zumba, bad roommates, and sad childhoods. Call your doctor if after six hours you still can’t get the grin off your face.

Review: David is a 30-year-old doctor who’s raising his 3-year-old daughter Maia by himself. He struggles to get back into the dating scene and his means to doing that will give you a good chuckle. He is just a normal guy who’s a little out of shape physically and he’s handsome but not stunning. According to Craig, he’s simply “nerdalicious.”
Craig is a hunky smokin’ hot go-go dancer and Zumba instructor. But that’s not all he is. He’s also a former foster child who has some self-esteem issues. He’s defensive and a little insecure because of his job, but he does it to pay for his masters degree studies. He likes David just the way he is and it’s obvious Craig’s character has depth, because for him, the type of person David is means a lot more than his physical appearance.
I’m a sucker for a story that includes a child and I was impressed that even though Maia is a very important part of David and Craig’s relationship, she didn’t take over the whole story. She is sweet and adorable and behaves exactly like a 3-year-old is supposed to behave.
This is a low angst story, there’s sweetness and tenderness, but make no mistake, the sex is hot and dirty and rough. I was surprised by David’s dirty side, I kept thinking to myself, “Well, Holy shit, Doc!!!”…
But the best part for me was the epilogue… forward 10 years, we get to briefly see their relationship is still strong, they’re still happy together and Maia is being the trouble making, foul-mouthed 13-year-old she’s supposed to be.
I recommend this to anyone who loves a low angst romance with awesome characters that will leave you feeling happy.
