Aaron's Story is the book that precedes what happens in Braden's Story, that I blogged…
Rowan is at the last place he wants to be, but he made a promise to a friend and so here he is. Stuck at some folk festival surrounded by people he doesn’t know and doesn’t want to know, because it is totally not his scene. He can manage all the yoga and singing, but he draws the line at morris dancing. Old men dancing around with sticks, so not his thing.
But when the group starts and he sees the big and sexy Seth, he might have to change his mind. Seth is everything he ever dreamed about, the man of his dreams. So when Seth asks him to join in a morris dancing workshop, he happily agrees. Attraction is mutual and pretty soon the sparks are flying and it is clear they both want each other A workshop leads to a night of passion, hastily interrupted when Rowan has to get back home, but not before he gets Seth’s phone number.
Once back home, the number turns out to be wrong and Rowan just decides it was a one night thing only and Seth just wasn’t that in to it after all. So why can’t he forget him and move on? Why does he keep stalking Seth of Facebook, desperately thinking of what could have been? Will they ever be together again, or will it just end after one night of passion?
A much shorter version of this story was originally published in the Not Quite Shakespeare Anthology by Dreamspinner Press. This version has been revised and extended. Almost half of it is new content.
To be honest I must say, I liked the story, but there are some points of critique. First of all, the story was a bit short, it could have been longer so there would be a little more detail. And the sex scenes were a bit ‘graphic’ in detail. I know a sex scene is important, but do we really need to know all those details about what goes where, how big it is and how it feels inside your ass? And I would have liked a little more information on morris dancing. I had no idea what it was, and I know it is not really necessary for reading the story, but still a little more background would have been good. But never the less, a very good story if you are looking for a quick read. Jay did it again for me, I just had to read the whole thing in one go.
