Shameless Recommendation

Solange Gay Rom Mini Banner

Oh now this was a treat. Literally not a single thing in this book I didn't love — from Ben Warren's sandpaper gruff voice to his 40-year-old body being hot for the guy with the sob story — everything was literally perfect. I loved the setting, the narration, the sparks that flew off my kindle when Ben and Davis collide. Surfer dudes, guys, what more do you want? It's a fairly short read, but it's so dense it doesn't feel that way. Highly recommended! [September 2014]

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

Knowing he’s loved can make any man fly.

Fifteen years ago, Ben Warren was a wakeboarding champion: king of big air, ballsy tricks, and boned grabs. Until a career-ending injury left him broken in ways he still has no hope of fixing. Now he takes his thrills where he can get them, and tries not to let life hurt too much.

Then Davis Fox arrives in Ben’s sporting goods store with a plan to get in touch with his estranged brother by competing in the annual wakeboarding double-up contest. The catch? He’s never ridden before. It’s crazy, but Ben’s a sucker for the guy’s sob story—and for his dimples, too—so he agrees to coach Davis.

Davis is everything Ben isn’t: successful, confident, and in love with life. And he wants Ben to love life—and him—too. But before Ben can embrace a future with Davis, he needs to remember how to hope.

I know his type the minute he walks through the door. He‰Ûªs at least twenty-five, has more money than God, and recently decided his dick is measured by the air he can catch on a board.
‰ÛÏWhat makes you feel alive now?‰Û
‰ÛÏRiding wake early in the morning, before the fog‰Ûªs cleared the water. Flirting with a much younger man. Sex. Candy.‰Û I pause to take in the smile spreading across his face before I whisper, ‰ÛÏEnergy drinks.‰Û
‰ÛÏStop trying to get off and let me make love to you.‰Û
Now I‰Ûªm beyond confused. ‰ÛÏAren‰Ûªt they the same thing?‰Û
He sits up and touches my face, stroking along the side with one hand. ‰ÛÏNo, Ben, they aren‰Ûªt. And it‰Ûªs fucking tragic that no one has ever shown you that before. Close your eyes and put your hands behind your head.‰Û

GENRE

Though Solange has moved on from Shameless Book Club and is living somewhere in Europe, we're gladly keeping her recommendations alive and published because they were just that good. --- Solange reads and writes gay romance like it’s her job — because it is. She likes her heroes and heroines tortured and horny, her plots juicy and riddled with angst, and rarely passes up the opportunity to add in some hurt and comfort. When she’s not reading or writing, Solange rides horses, hikes around Michigan’s plentiful lakes or whizzes down mountains with a snowboard to her feet. She’s a speed-junky, a caffeine addict and a dog lover. If you’d like to get in touch, email her here. She doesn’t bite, unless that floats your boat.
