Canning the Center (The Long Pass Chronicles) by Tara Lain

Ok, I have a kink (only one I swear)... pairing between a tall man and a shorter partner. And if the tall man arrives with a kind streak, a gentle soul, well, you got me. So when I read the blurb of Canning the Center, I was totally sold to 6 feet 7 inches Jamal and his love at first sight for drag queen Trixie aka Trevor. But once I started reading, I also fell with in love with Trevor, mathematician genius who feels his love for cross-dressing is a shame, something he has to hide from his publica persona, that he will never find a man who is able to love Trixie knowing Trevor is behind the makeup. And instead Jamal was never once deceived, when he sees Trixie perform, he knows there is a man behind, and he loves both Trixie and Trevor, cause there is no Trixie without Trevor, and viceversa.

The story maybe is a little too much good feelings, knowing how bad the world could be, a family like the one Jamal has is a dream to me, but I really, really hope there are people like them, and that for 10 kids who are kicked out of home for being gay, there is at least 1 family who will cherish their son or daughter; and maybe, in time, the proportion will shift more and more and we will arrive to a time when the rejection will be the exception, or even better, a crime against law.

Anyway, Trevor and Jamal play my kink to perfection, Jamal is, like Trevor said, a big bunny, cause even a teddy bear is too hard a word to describe the tenderness he is able to display toward Trevor. And even if Jamal may take wrong decisions sometime, it's indeed a proof that he is still at the edge between youth and adult, still needing the guidance of his parents' wise words.

Really enjoyed this story, it warms your heart.
