This was not at all what I expected.  A pole dancing stripper who hurts his foot and ends up in the emergency room in his firefighter costume and sequined thong?  That practically screams PWP.  What we get instead is SO cute and very funny.

Matt is the pole dancer, who meets the radiographer assistant, Sal, while Sal is wearing froggy scrubs.  At the time, Matt is waiting for an x-ray and … Continue reading

This is the first book in a terrific series that follows first two then three men through their lives together. I started the series with book four so this book told me how Rock and Rigger met in Texas and got together as a couple. The series is strictly erotica with a thin but captivating story line. Don’t look for more that a tremendous amount of sex and a little … Continue reading
