Dean learns the true meaning of the words "playing with your food" when his hot and hunky roommate, Rick, interrupts his plans for some solo Sunday afternoon fun. Human sundae aside, Dean discovers a kinship with Rick that he never knew existed, and a basis for what promises to be a delicious relationship. But when Rick overreacts to Dean's nonchalance after their first time, can Dean convince Rick that what they have is real?

Sundae toppings never looked so good.

I have to start by saying this is a very short story. Some tales are best told in small snippets. This is one of them. I’m new to D.C. Juris’ work, but I’m glad I got this book.

I like stories where both characters are infatuated with each other, but circumstances, namely not admitting to the attraction, keep them apart. The general theme of the story is sexy. Two guys, some whipped cream, and a whole lot of imagination. D.C. Juris kept me bolted to my seat wanting to know what would happen next.

But the same issue that makes a short story good, can also be to it’s detriment. The characters come across as a bit thin on details and development. I knew Dean wanted Rick, but I wanted to know more about them. I liked both men, but I wanted to know more about why they stayed as roommates so long. I liked the tension in keeping them apart as long as they were, but I’m nosy and wanted to know what happened next. There were some interesting ideas alluded to at the end of the story and I wanted to see those played out.

Ulitmately, if you want a sinfully sexy story with an interesting use of chocolate syrup, then you need to read Sundae Surprise. I give it 3 cherries.
