Gavin has had a rough few years. A bike messenger by day and dancer at night, he does what he needs to to pay his way. He has rules though, and he won’t cross the line just for an extra buck. He is working on his GED and plans to change his life. When the handsome Dutch comes in to the club with a bachelor’s party group, the instant attraction is strong. Dutch is drawn to Gavin and wants to give him more than just tips for a dance, Gavin does not want to feel bought. When the protective feelings Dutch harbor have him following Gavin around all week, the dancer finally concedes to going back to Dutch’s house with him, just to get away from where he is. Respect and graciousness abounds as the men get to know each other without crossing the lines.
This was a really quick read for me. It only took about an hour, the story flows rather smoothly. This is not the typical type of book for me, a very sexual romance, however the writing was good and the author is able to paint the scenes well. It was an ok love story, somewhat reminded me of Pretty Woman. Wealthy man sweeps poor struggling love interest off their feet. Granted Gavin was clearly not a prostitute able to be bought. The story progressed in a reasonable time frame of respectable lusting so I give it points for not jumping into immediate love and sex.
I’m not sure if I am the target demographic for a book about two gay men falling in love, so I will refrain from rating this on a star based system.
Gavin Rossi is one sexy piece of Eye Candy wrapped in a tight body and sweet smile. The hot breath on his neck, the mesmerizing rhythm as he rolls his hips, the strong chest rising and falling beneath his hands make for a distraction he’s terrified to see play out.
When Dutch Williamson feels a set of perfectly sculpted thighs slipping over his lap, the last thing his liquor-hazed brain registers is this is my future. The tempting piece of Eye Candy grinding on his lap is going to cut him at the knees, and he knows it.
This is a dance. This is a tease. God, this is so much more.
Gavin stood by the marble-top island. “We need to discuss rent.” He stuffed his hands in the pockets of his faded jeans. “Between the two jobs, I can pay you something. I don’t expect a handout. I need to do my part.”
Everything had turned upside down. Being alone and content no longer counted for anything good in his life. Once again, the privileges of his birth were humbling. He shut the door. The guy had pride. Fighting the urge to pull those sexy hips into his hands, he passed the island and looked over his shoulder. “You coming? You can pick which room you want and…we’ll discuss the logistics in the morning when you come to the restaurant for your interview.”
He stopped, giving Gavin time to catch up at the staircase.
“You were serious, weren’t you? I um, I really didn’t expect you to offer me a job. I figured I could get a good night’s sleep, you’d wake up and regret asking me to be a tenant, and I’d have to take off, but now it feels different.”
Dutch stopped when they reached the top of the stairs. “I told you, you’re safe with me. If you stay around, you’ll see I’m telling the truth. Every bedroom has a lock. Use it if you feel you need to, but know it’s your space, and I’ll respect that.”
Gavin took the bag to sling it over his shoulder. “What if I don’t want to lock the door?”
Well hell. “Then I’ll need to lock mine.”
