Blurb: A virgin gay man, Corbin is ready to ease into his new lifestyle; still, making the move scares him shitless. He’s spent years fantasizing about embracing his true self, but what possessed him to agree to a 1 Night Stand? As he nears the long, lean man with shaggy, graying hair, a hard on pushing at the front of his swim trunks, and a sexy-as-hell grin, the dreams pale in comparison, and easing in takes on a whole new meaning.
Though tired of being lonely, Matt considers changing his mind about the one-night arrangement until a tall, well-built man strolls across the pool area toward him, then all thoughts of leaving flee. Those broad shoulders, the amazing pecs, the spattering of dark hair on his chest…all of it calls to Matt. He wants to touch it, play with it. He forces himself to calm down. Matt will be his date’s first male lover, and he intends to find the inner strength to take his time.
Intense physical attraction and Madame Eve’s magic ignite a sexual fire, but will it be enough for two men starting over?
Review: Corbin is nervous to begin his new life as a gay man even though he has come out. He is too nervous to go on a date so his ex-wife persuades him to try out 1Night Stand dating service to begin with. Matt is trying to get over the loss of his partner and to continue on with his life so he decides to take the plunge and contact 1Night Stand.
This was a very good story that I really enjoyed reading. Corbin is understandably nervous and scared about starting his new life as a gay man after he embraced his sexuality. When he meets up with Matt he really hasn’t got any idea of what to do or expect. Matt is surprised at his reaction to Corbin, as although he agreed to the date he just thought it would be to ease back in to the dating game.
The two men have a great reaction to each other and both of them are in effect starting over in the dating game. The sex is hot and I liked that we got a bit of background about both men even before they met.
Now one thing I noticed and I can’t believe one of the proof-readers missed it was that Matt’s partner was said to have died in a plane crash but the third time the crash was mentioned it had changed to a car crash. Honestly, that simple mistake had me pulled from the book and going back to check the other times it was mentioned just to make sure I wasn’t going mad.
But, that aside, I recommend this to those who love hot men, hot sex, new beginnings and a happy ever after.
