Wide Awake by Kade Boehme

Interesting approach for an erotic romance novel: instead of starting it off with the firecrackers of a night of sex, when the novel opens it’s the morning after, Tyler and Mark in bed together with Tyler remembering how this was a dream comes true, him in bed with his best friend’s dad. Now Mark was a teenager dad, 15 years old, and Tyler is 4 years older than Mark’s son, so in the end there are little more than 10 years between them, but in any case it’s not easy for them, considering all the collateral ties they have.

In any case, there is no more sex between them, on the contrary they decide to take it slow and going back to dating and trying to understand if there is something true between them. I was almost used to think to this as a sweet romance, no sex allowed, when it suddenly turned into hot steamy sex and innuendos all around. It was unexpected but in a way the main reason why I liked this story: if they had continued with sex, sex, sex from page one, the reader would have been distracted from the plot. In this way, I could appreciate Mark’s struggle to finally grasp his life.

The novel is not perfect, it’s self-published and sometime there were some minor wrong typing (like and instead of an, or some double words before and after the verb), but considering this is little more than 1 dollar, and above all, considering I found Mark’s character to be good and original, and Tyler an adorable puppy who is ready to display his strength when needed, it was quite a good debut, good enough to make me want to read more by this author.
