I was asked to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review. I really liked this book. Started off with one heck of a sex scene. It was a great short short story.
Virginal Delights, 2
Cole Patterson was raised by his uncle on a cattle ranch in Colorado where being gay is likely to get you strung up. The one bright spot in Cole's life was cowboy Jack Price. Cole loved Jack, even though he knew Jack was straight. But when Jack got engaged to his high school sweetheart, it was too painful and Cole took off.
Two years later Cole’s working at Pepper's Palace in Pahrump, Nevada as a male prostitute. A chance meeting reconnects the two men and after a few drinks Jack shocks Cole by admitting he’s always had feelings for him. Even though the passion between the two men is undeniable, Cole is positive when Jack learns the truth about Cole he’ll turn his back on him forever.
Be Warned: m/m sex, public exhibition, prostitution
He took the bottle and poured us another round. Well, he tried. A lot of it ended up on the bar, and he giggled as he set the bottle down. “Shit. When did I become such a lightweight?” He licked the tequila off his hand and my cock twitched.
I stood awkwardly. I was having a little trouble controlling my amorous impulses, and I decided I should probably get him safely to bed. “We can talk more in the morning. Maybe I should walk you to your motel.”
“My. How forward of you.” He grinned. He grabbed his hat and threw some cash on the counter. “Keep the change,” he told the smiling bartender as he put his Stetson firmly on his head.
We walked out into the cool night. The smell of star jasmine was strong and I heard a coyote off in the distance. Jack linked arms with me and we made our way in the direction of the motel. The ground was uneven, and we kept tripping and giggling. At one point Jack stopped me and turned to face me.
“Have you ever had sex with a girl?” he asked in a gravelly voice.
Surprised at the question I laughed. “Um … no. I like fucking guys, remember?”
He hissed in a breath. “I know. I just wondered if you knew what you were missing.” The moon was full and it cast shadows over his angular features.
“Pffft. I like dicks waaaayyy too much.” I chuckled and he laughed. “Besides, you have no idea what you’re missing.”
He licked his lips and his eyes seemed to glitter in the dim light. “Yeah.”
Yeah? That response surprised me a little.
Shaking his head, he said, “Fuck. I am wasted.”
“Me too.” I started walking again and he followed.
“How far is the motel? Promise you’re not just taking me all the way out here to have your way with me.” He grinned.
“Don’t give me any ideas.” I laughed.
He swallowed loudly and stopped me again. “Have you ever had fantasies about me?”
I flushed and tried to start walking again, but he tugged on the back of my shirt and kept me where I was.
“I’m serious. Have you ever … you know … wanted me?” He sounded so forlorn my heart ached for him.
“Why are you asking me that? If I say no I’d probably insult you, and if I say yes you’ll be freaked out.”
He searched my face and seemed to be breathless all at once. “I’ve thought about you.”
“What?” I asked, shocked. “Do you mean … sexually?” I couldn’t catch my breath all of a sudden.
He nodded and then rubbed his face again. “I’m only telling you this because I’m super drunk.”
I smiled and leaned in, pressing my chest to his, our mouths only inches apart. “You’re such a chicken shit. You’d never have the guts to kiss a guy.”
His breath was warm and sweet from the tequila. “Not just any guy, no. But you … I’d fucking love to kiss you, Cole.”
My heart started pounding so hard I was afraid he’d be able to hear it. “Yeah?” I asked, aware that my cock had hardened between my legs at the very idea he’d kiss me. “You’re just saying that.”
“You like girls. Don’t fucking play with me.” I didn’t appreciate being teased. I was way too drunk and horny for that.
He shocked me when he pulled me into his arms and covered my mouth with his. His lips were hot and urgent as they opened against mine. I didn’t have it in me to hold back. He gave a tiny whimper when I slipped my tongue into his mouth, desperate to taste him while I had the chance. He tangled his fingers in my hair and kissed me harder. He had an erection. There was no hiding it as it pressed into my thigh. When he lifted his head for air I assumed he’d push me away angrily, but instead he slid his hands along my hips and slipped around to cup my ass, grinding against my bulging cock.
“Holy fuck, Cole.” He sounded scared and out of control. “I want to do things to you that are wrong. So fucking wrong.”
I was asked to read this ARC for an honest review. I loved this story the feeling between these two men were amazing. The love Jack had for Cole for complete he only felt that way for one man Cole and Cole loved him just as much he even left his uncle's ranch because seeing Jack with someone else was too hard glad they got their HE A.
This was a good short read.. I the beginning I felt so sorry for the main character because you could tell that the didn't want to be where he was in love and wanted to be more. He need more in his life because he was barely going through the motions to get through his work. We than see him off duty with a friend and reading about him and his past and we see why he is the kind of person he is. This book reminds me of a a fairy tale book where someone comes in and takes him away from his life. Or at least we hope he does. This book does end with Cooper finding out about things he questioned in the past and that he was remembered. Something we all wish.
Cole fled his uncles ranch and is turning tricks to make ends meet. Jack is Cole's very straight friend from back on the ranch, they haven't seen each other in a couple of years when they happen to be drinking in the same bar and reconnect. Turns out Jack isn't as straight as we all thought. I enjoyed this book, I really liked Cole's voice and found both him and Jack engaging and likeable. The writing is good and very readable. This book does exactly what it says on the tin, it's called Virginal Delights so it's no secret that it's all about the sex!! It's short, sweet, hot and sexy and ends on a HFN. Copy provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.
I received a copy from the author for a honest review. That was one hot steamy lovely short story. Smooth written and really holding my attention. Short story's are difficult to write to make it acceptable The author did a good job. The whole living situation before the present was clear written. Cole had a hard life. After he took off by leaving his uncle's farm he became a hooker. He left his old life because he could not survive another day in hate coming from people from his surroundings. He was hurt deeply by watching his best straight friend Jack to get married. He almost did end his life but chose to flee. After a couple of years sitting in a bar with a friend/colleque a stranger walks in. There was something about the way he walked that almost seemed familiar. A very entertaining hot read. Apologize for any wrong grammar. English is not my native language
Cole goes to a bar near Pepper's Palace where he meets his friend, Paul. A mysterious cowboy walks into the bar, and after talking with Paul, Cole is surprised to see that it's his friend, Jack. He's been in love with him for years, but he doesn't think he has a chance because Jack is straight. There is quite a bit that happens and there's a happy ending. I hope Paul's story is next!
