Liam is done with love, but his daughter Portia has other plans. When he arrives to pick her up from college, she sets him up with her friend Charlie, and merrily heads off to her internship without them. Liam is left with an uncomfortable hard-on for Portia’s bestie, and a long drive to Vegas with a guy too young to know what to do with a guy Liam’s age.

More specifically, he thought he liked Portia, but when her dad offers him a ride home after graduation, he suddenly, shockingly realizes that he doesn’t like women at all. He likes Liam, and he wants to hook up as soon as possible, and maybe not ever let go. So, when Liam makes an offer he can’t refuse, what’s he supposed to do? Say no to the hottest person he’s ever met?

Liam had been looking forward to spending some time with his college-aged daughter, but when Portia called to say she’d been offered an internship, Liam knew his plans were shot. Pleased to at least see his daughter briefly before she heads off to Hawaii, Liam is not surprised Portia promised her best friend, Charlie, that Liam would give him a lift home. Charlie has had nothing but rotten luck with the women he’s dated, and he’s starting to think he might be trying to hook up with the wrong gender. Feeling that a bit of experimentation with his best friend’s father might not be a bad idea, Charlie is hoping to use this drive for more than just a means of transport from Arizona to Vegas.

I found this to be a fun and interesting short story. I was particularly pleased that Charlie and Liam didn’t just jump immediately into bed and get all hot and heavy with each other. While there’s plenty of chemistry and flirting, I felt the longer “getting to know you” part – and also particularly a little father/daughter time with Liam and Portia – really helped round out the story and give it a feel of more than just an erotic short story. Strong on the characterization of Charlie and Liam in particular, this book wasn’t just a few sexy scenes strung together but really felt like a story of two men in completely different places in their lives finding each other and falling in love. I really enjoyed it and found it highly satisfying as a well-rounded story.

Once Liam and Charlie become intimate I found the sex to be both prolific and hotly written. While there is an age-gap between Charlie and Liam I didn’t feel it overbalanced the connection between the two men and I certainly didn’t feel like it created a power imbalance. Charlie was certainly a grown up man, who had just graduated college and had already had a few hard knocks in life and knew what the world was about. At no stage did I feel he was portrayed as an innocent or sheltered young man nor did I feel like Liam in any way took advantage over him. The two men were well suited and while admittedly at completely different stages in their life and possibly looking for very different things, I really felt like they were well suited. And there was enough chemistry between them to singe the pages.

A hot and fun, quick read this was a great short story and an author I’m rapidly growing fond of. A great story and one I will happily reread again in the future.
