Jude Park has everything he’s worked hard to achieve. But something is still missing. He can’t move forward with his life without finding out if there is something more for him in Salt Lake City. Maybe he’s chasing a dream--a wet dream--but he has to see Rob Aspen.
Rob isn’t misreading the signals. But Jude is a temptation he shouldn’t want. Tell that to his body. Jude is hot, hard and hungry for cock. His tight ass and ripped body have Rob thinking reckless thoughts. How could he contemplating sex with his best friend’s son?
I knew when I picked this story I was in for short, but hot time. I wasn’t let down. The characters are interesting and the premise of the tale is believable. I find when I read M/M stories, many times the story lines are very stereotypical. Not so with this book. In fact, the human qualities and foibles of Jude and Rob are what made the story memorable. The writing is tight and well paced.
What I wanted to see more of was what happened after the story ended. I liked how A.J. Hardcourt crafted the characters, but I wanted to know what happened afterwards. How did Jude’s mother react? Don’t get me wrong, the story is strong. I just like more details and how things go in the long-term. And granted, I know this is a short tale, so it can’t, by nature, be long on details.
Still, the sex in this little gem is smoking. I could feel the admiration and lust flowing between Jude and Rob. It was sexy and heated and kind of pretty all at the same time.
If you want a story that’s quick, but hot, hot, hot, then you need to read In His Bed. I give it 3.5 cherries.
