Blurb: Dumped by his boyfriend, Frankie Mason goes out with the girls, gets totally trashed, and ends his night by falling in front of a taxi. He’s rescued by a man with beautiful green eyes who takes care of him until he’s put into an ambulance. Frankie curses himself as he realizes he doesn’t have the man’s phone number. Still in pain a few days later, he is dragged out to a club only to be saved by Green Eyes once more. This time, he isn’t letting the man go.
Unfortunately Frankie has to attend a team-building exercise, nicknamed Womb Weekend, organized by his company. Al is working so he doesn’t mind, until he discovers who the team leader is. Al has a lot of explaining to do!
Review: Frankie and Al is a cute little story about two men who keep running into each other, but never long enough to even get each others’ names. Until one day when they do, and it’s a surprise worth waiting for!
Frankie works for an insurance company. He describes himself as a 30 year old twink. He likes to have a good time but knows that his days as a party boy are numbered. Frankie gets himself into crazy situations, and his future love interest, Al, helps him out on a couple of the occasions. I’m not going to give them away, because they are pretty funny.
Al works for a company that runs corporate team building weekends. And that’s how Frankie and Al finally meet. It’s a big “Oh shit” moment! The lead up and subsequent meeting are pretty funny. The whole story is mostly lighthearted and fun. The boys work well together. Al is a bit of a Dominant and Frankie is the opposite and likes to push his buttons. In that respect they fit perfectly together. They have great sexual chemistry and are believable as a couple and are fun to watch!
There are no twists and turns in the plot. The story’s a bit predictable, but it’s cute and entertaining. The writing is light and breezy and flows without any stilted parts. Frankie and Al is a sweet little tale about chance meetings that were meant to be.
