Review by: Cactus
It doesn't look good for one of rock's most famous faces to cause a wreck, especially if he's been drinking. Yet Ian Jeffries does just that, right into another man's car. Musician Tony Simpson isn't amused by the damage, despite being taken by tabloid magnet Ian. Ian's willing to do anything to keep away more bad publicity. Luckily, Tony's willing to see the good in the rock scene's latest bad boy.
With two bad boys of music and one deserted road, anything can happen. Ian runs into Tony’s car by accident, Ian tries to talk Tony out of reporting the accident by any means necessary. Tony, also a musician, is not immune to Ian’s bad boy charm and quickly the sparks fly between these two sexy men. What starts as a hot one night stand just may end up with a happy ending.
This short story – less than 20 pages – is really just a hot, sexual encounter with a hope for more. The characters are introduced and the first ten pages or so set up the sexual chemistry between the two and their backgrounds. Ian is a very successful singer who is known to have a drinking problem and an estranged wife. Tony is also a singer, though less well known than Ian and openly gay. The two meet and immediately spark off each other, dancing around their intentions until finally the remainder of the story is used for the extended sex scene. Due to the brevity, the characters aren’t fully developed but there is enough in the bad boy singer archetype that readers will identify the idea the story is creating.
Between the set up and the sex scene, there is one comment about Ian traveling to see a show Tony is doing in a few weeks but that is the extent of a possibility for a happy ending. Perhaps that will pan out and readers can imagine a relationship but this is really meant to offer a sizzling hot, quick one night stand between two men. The author is comfortable with this format and produces numerous short stories that are hot, erotic encounters without much hope for the future and this story fits perfectly into that mold.
For those romance fans looking for something meatier with a more developed happy ending, perhaps this will disappoint. However, for fans of this style and this author in particular, this erotica scene may entice and delight. If this sounds like something you’re interested in, you likely will enjoy this short treat.
