Review: Addison Albright – King Kong vs the Skinny Pirate

51xF4VuufHLAuthor: Addison Albright
Reviewer: Sandra
Publisher: JMS Books
Genre: Contemporary

Rating: ★★★★½ 


Blaine is a well-dressed, high priced attorney, and George is a hairy mountain of an auto mechanic. This odd couple meets up one evening on a slow night at a bar. The pickings are slim. Slim enough for these opposites to eyeball each other and ask themselves just how bad they want to get laid.

Pleasantly surprised by the evening’s outcome, Blaine is faced with a dilemma. Should he throw caution to the wind and pursue George, or steer clear of that unexpected distraction to his carefully structured life.

3rd edition


Holy wow this surprised me. Definitely very sex-heavy, but it was very emotionally charged and balanced perfectly with their flirty and tension-building introduction. Albright refrained from either of them becoming caricatures. We weren’t just told these guys had a connection, we saw it. It wasn’t unexplained. There were character traits that unexpectedly attracted them to each other. George’s strength, assertiveness, confidence, humor, and kindness, along with the surprisingly new sensations chest hair created within Blaine. And therefore Blaine had more passion than George had expected.

Honestly the only reason it got bumped down to 4.5 stars was because of the last couple pages. It was fine but there was a silly joke in reference to the name that wasn’t necessary and felt a tad clichéd. That didn’t flow with the rest of the book which was surprisingly sexy and surprisingly sweet. (I’m not sure why it’s so surprising, maybe because of the bad cover?) And its FREE!!!
