A super sexy MMM romance set in the Supercross industry – 18+ please.
“In two years, you're going to be gunning me down hard on a 450.”
One eyebrow lifted under that purple hair. “You think?” Bryce looked so vulnerable and sincere, Tate wanted to kiss him. He shoved that thought down hard, though. It would be pretty stupid to have a fling with another racer right then.
“Yeah. I totally think.” His stomach growled hard, interrupting the conversation, making Bryce laugh out loud. “Yeah, I'm starving. Wanna go grab some chow? Or do you need to keep practicing?”
“Nah, let's go eat. I'm not even supposed to be here.” Bryce gave him a sly smile, making those deep blue eyes twinkle. “I heard some hot shot Supercross star was going to be around, so I gave my coach the slip and stalked the track.”
Tate's stomach fluttered with Bryce's admission. He was totally getting under Tate's skin with his cute freckles and arrogant little smirk. “Let's go then.”
What I Loved: I enjoyed Tate and Pilot and I loved their interactions with one another as well as their banter. Tate and Pilot hooked me from the very beginning of the book. Funnily enough, Tate had me wanting to shake him sometimes and hug him at others. But the two of them together was fun, sweet, sexy and a whole list of adjectives.
The writing is very well done and Lynn Michaels is a great writer. The story flowed well and I was able to picture it vividly in my mind as I read the story. While I didn't always care for the content, it didn't take away from the writing itself.
I also found myself falling in love with Johnny and am looking forward to what is in store for him.
What I Liked: I liked Bryce. I wasn't in love with him like with Pilot and Tate but he grew on me as the story progressed.
What I Didn't Like: I have to be honest and say that I had a big problem with Bryce's age. When we first meet him he isn't quite 18 years old. Reading that had my stomach dropping and I started to pull away from the story. He's too young to me and it made me uncomfortable when I thought about his age. I would have preferred to have us readers meeting him when he was 20.
Tate himself was only 21 which didn't bother me as much but the fact that I never got a clear idea of how old Pilot is made it a bit awkward for me. I don't mind age gap but I don't particularly like it when one of the characters is just barely of age. Maybe I'm getting older or maybe I've been working with children too long, whatever the reason, I wasn't completely comfortable thinking of a kid in this relationship.
