SUMMARY: Former physical therapist and reluctant loner Ian Bowen has spent the three years since his grandfather’s death searching for a man to inspire him to park his Harley for a while—without much hope of finding him. On a whim, he shows up for a Toy Run and meets Ed Gonzalez, another loner with a pile of toys lashed to his bike. A few beers at the end-of-the-run party turn into an invite to Ed’s for homebrew. But instead of a night of fun, the unseasonable cold renders Ed immobile with pain. When he tells Ian he just needs meds, Ian does one of the things he does best—he massages Ed’s pain away, allowing him a rare restful night’s sleep and creating intimacy neither wants to lose. Ian thinks two men have to follow certain rules to be together, but Ed’s prepared to show him how wrong he is.
Christmas might be over, but romance is always in season.
I really enjoyed this little story. Who knew that two macho men on motorcycles were capable of such tenderness? Yet there’s an immediate spark, an attraction between Ed and Ian that ends up going much deeper than what was probably just supposed to be a one night stand.
Each man was missing something in their lives and they found it in the other. Rough as they are they still want love and companionship. And several dogs. 🙂
Even though this story isn’t long, it’s quite complete, saying a lot in just 27 pages. A nice easy read with a mug of coffee by your side.
My only quibble? I wanted more! LOL! Toy Run set up a great foundation for Ed and Ian’s relationship and I truly hope that Charley revisits these characters in the future. They have much more story to tell.
