Trig isn’t looking for something special when he comes to the Gay Riders’ Carnival this year, but it just might have come looking for him.
It’s Trig’s fourth year at the Gay Riders’ Carnival and this year he’s not sure if he’s looking for more than a few nights of camping, checking out the booths and listening to the music. He’s been dumped a lot in the last year and is looking more to lick his wounds and just relax.
It’s the first time at the Carnival for Tarzan and he doesn’t know exactly what to expect. When he lays eyes on Trig, though, he knows what he wants. Trig claims he’s not a bottom, but he’s tripping all of Tarzan’s instincts.
Can these two men find a middle ground, or will their attraction last only as long as the Carnival itself?
Publisher’s Note: This book is the sequel to The Biker’s Pup by Sean Michael. It is best read in sequence but can be read as a standalone.
When I read the Biker’s Pup I loved the cast of characters, which included Trig I hoped that more from this group would be forthcoming. Now having said that I don’t necessarily think that you need to read Pup to enjoy this one. Sean Michael has given us two wonderful men and a short and sweet yet manly story.
Trig is once again at the Gay Riders’ Carnival when he meets Tarzan, (yeah I know right?!) then things just progress at a steady and heated pace. There is some real hot caravan/trailer sex. (I will never look at a caravan the same again.) And these guys are really gorgeous and eminently likeable, humour and humility and in the end a wonderful start to a relationship.
Trig is at a crossroads. His usual choice of partners is just not doing it for him and whilst his friends have settled he hasn’t found the right guy for him. It actually runs deeper than that. He has feelings that he is not comfortable acknowledging let alone exploring. This is the story of his journey, and it is beautifully written. We touch base with Whip and Nicky (obviously from Pup), enough that we are happy to see them again but not too much that we are distracted from the two hunks we are learning about.
I loved these guys and if you like a bit of Dom/sub play and men who like their sex a bit on the rough side then you are gonna love this. I did!
Four and a half
Often referred to as “Space Cowboy” and “Gangsta of Love” while still striving for the moniker of “Maurice,” Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organising his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs. While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f-bomb and pursuing the kama sutra by channelling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to “Chicago”.
A long-time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.
Barring any of that? He’ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.
