Fast Connection by Megan Erickson and Santino Hassell
“He’s completely complicated. And lost. And frustrating. But we do something for each other. . . . We fit. We need each other.”
I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! This was my first full five star rated book of 2017, this was the perfect book at the perfect time!
Dominic Costigan served his country in the army for many years, and it was there he realized that his skirt chasing days may also include pant chasing. Basically, he’s bisexual. Upon returning home he gets a gay dating app and finds himself in a hook up with silver fox Luke.
Luke is a divorced father of two teens, also bisexual, and has zero interest in a relationship. But there’s something between the two of them that Luke recognizes and doesn’t want to. Can Luke look past his reservations and open up to Dominic?
“I couldn’t get enough of him. He was an addiction now, and I hadn’t decided yet if he was a healthy one like eating apples every day or an unhealthy one like meth.”
I loved this book, I loved it. I am going to keep saying that. I LOVED IT! There. It’s all out. Maybe. If you read the first book, the Dominic Costigan we met wasn’t his best self, I was wary of his character to be honest. But I love when authors take a character who doesn’t appear to be great in one book, and we see a whole new side of them in their own book.
Dominic is one of my favorite book heroes now, I loved reading about his journey to find himself and what he wanted to do with his life. His insecurities came from a real place, not having a supportive figure in his life. Luke was his perfect counter point despite being kind of a dick in the beginning. The two of them got each other, one kind of goofy and the other stoic. Dominic breaks through Luke’s hard exterior, and Luke recognizes that “Nick” needs affection.
Perk for all of you pervy pervs out there like me, this book was seriously HAWT. Very, vert hot. But it was equal with plot which is so hard to do and I appreciated that. And it had the perfect level of angst, the delicious kind where rainbows come out of my mouth while I am reading it. (Yes, I am weird).
Anyways, if you are in the mood for an awesome MM story between a hot Captain America type and a silver fox, this is the book for you!
“I want you. To be mine. Only mine.”
