When your deepest, darkest fantasy shows up, get on board.

Sam Keller knows he’ll never find the excitement he craves in Middleton, Iowa—not while he’s busting his ass in nursing school and paying rent by slaving away in a pharmacy stockroom. Then Sam meets Mitch Tedsoe, an independent, long-haul trucker who makes a delivery to a shop across the alley. Innocent flirting quickly leads to a fling, and when Mitch offers to take him on a road trip west, Sam jumps at the chance for adventure. Mitch is sexy, funny and friendly, but once they embark on their journey, something changes. One minute he’s the star of Sam’s every x-rated fantasy, the next he’s almost too much a perfect gentleman. And when they hit the Las Vegas city limit, Sam has a name to pin on Mitch’s malady: Randy.

For better or for worse, Sam grapples with the meaning of friendship, letting go, growing up—even the meaning of love—because no matter how far he travels, eventually all roads lead home.

The day Sam Keller meets Mitch Tedsoe in the alley behind his Aunt and Uncle’s pharmacy, his life changes. This is a love story but it’s also a story about growth, Sam’s growth and his journey to realize there is more to life than one small Iowa town.

This story is full of angst, at times I wanted to yell at the characters to just talk to each other, stop assuming. Ms. Cullinan has a way of drawing me in. I keep telling myself that her books will be a quick light read, but every time she provides a much deeper, grittier and fully immersive story that I can’t put down, the kind that makes me snap at being interrupted, and Special Delivery was definitely one of those.

It’s a story about Mitch and Sam, but Mitch and Sam aren’t the only ones engaged in physical activity, there’s other men who come in to play, and that’s Sam and Mitch’s kink. More Mitch’s at the beginning but before we ever meet Mitch, it’s very clear that Sam has the same urges and leanings.

It’s an interesting blend of kink without really being a BDSM book, it’s more about what Mitch and Sam enjoy and them learning to deal with and love each other, I found it really erotic and very beautiful at its core. It’s got a lot of kink, so be prepared to explore new horizon right along with Mitch and Sam and their play partners, but never fret at the core it’s still a love story between Mitch and Sam and everything is done in a consensual way.

I highly recommend this book, and look forward to reading more in this series, since I really came to love one of their partners in this book and I’m dying to see where he ends up.
