Best LGBT Erotic Romance: Dirty Laundry (A Tucker Springs Novel) by Heidi Cullinan

Again, I didn’t behave… I read a book in a series without respecting the order! Now, aside from my misbehaving, this is a good way to understand if the book can be a standalone, and this one passed the test. Sure, you will probably be intrigued by El and Paul good enough to go back and read their story, and probably there is one about Jase too, but that is an added bonus not a demerit point. Denver and Adam’s story is all here, nice and sexy as you like.

And yes, there is a LOT of sex here, but the kind that is good and healthy, sexy and yes, even funny sometime. Derek and Adam got hooked up in a Laundromat, for what both think to be no strings attached sex, but their minds (and hearts) have other plans than their bodies. Or maybe they are perfectly in line and since the sex is so good, the bodies sent the message to the hearts to not let this good chance to happiness to go away. It starts as physical but it soon turns into emotional, and emotion that is in both men. Denver can have this aura of macho man, but he is actually someone who is missing not having a family, and not that almost all his friends are paired, and happy, Denver wants a piece of that happiness also for himself. And then there is Adam, whose OCD makes almost impossible for him to have an ordinary life, and then suddenly Denver is there, and instead of kicking him out, his OCD seems to talk with him. Denver doesn’t know that he is taking all the right move, instead of trying to make Adam forget his obsessions, he tries to go around them, find a solution to live with them. Not denying the OCD, Denver is accepting Adam, something that few did in the past.

I like that nor Denver or Adam are these hot as hell guys everyone is drooling for. Sure Denver has got a good body, and he is strong, but Adam is the first one to say he is not exactly handsome; and Denver can call Adam a twink, but Adam is actually 26 years old, a grad student, and more on the geek side than the twink one. Both of them are not perfect, in many way other than looks, but they are perfect together.

Good, kinky, light story, to sit down, enjoy and relax.
