“Without forgetting it is quite impossible to live at all.” ― Friedrich Nietzsche
BLURB: Austin Lombard is desperate to forget a bad relationship the night he goes out with only one rule in mind: no names. But when he meets a gorgeous, irreverent Scotsman, Austin’s resolve is put to the test again and again as the night goes on. “James” is smart, a great kisser, and everything Austin would want in a date. But Austin resists; he’s had enough of names, and enough of relationships. Hasn’t he?
Review: Austin has been burned one too many times when trying to find “Mr. Right”. So he comes up with the great idea of going out and finding a “Mr. Right Now” and keeping it completely anonymous. He wants to have a no-strings-no-names-one-off. It seems he is in luck because as soon as he orders his first drink, he meets a promising prospect. In keeping with the no names requirement, he leaves with the gorgeous Scotsman for what he believes will be a quick one nighter but ends up being more like a date.
When Austin and his Scotsman stop for a bite to eat, Austin decides he has to call the man something, so he decides on “James”. It turns out that “James” is actually a great guy. He is funny, gorgeous and he does things to Austin that he never experienced before. Plus ,they just seem to mesh on more than a physical level.
This is a short story that lasts only as long as the morning after, but I felt the author did a great job of putting us in the moment with these two men and making us want to root for them. There was a balance of totally smexy moments and humorous moments that had me on the edge of my seat to see where these two will end up. I simply adored “James” and I do believe Austin felt the same way, but you will have to give it a go if you want to find out if he stopped fighting the attraction. I feel it was well worth my time and highly recommend this as a fun and quick read.
