Socially awkward, closeted virgin Avery Malcolm passes his days and nights running his bigoted aunt’s motel in rural New Mexico. He dreams of getting away and hitting the road, but with one friend, a few acquaintances, and no real life to speak of outside his duties as front desk clerk, he doesn’t know if he’ll ever get a chance.
Fate sends hot drifter Chase Lancaster to the Red Ram Motel, riding in on his sexy black motorcycle. Within twenty-four hours, Avery’s life is turned upside down. Before long, even though Chase’s sexual interests seem to run exclusively toward women in bars, Avery finds himself falling for the beautiful biker with no permanent address. Chase is much more than his bad boy persona, so while it’s nice to have another friend, Avery doesn’t know how he’ll survive with his heart intact when Chase inevitably moves on.
Simple, easy, not hidden anything. Loved it.
Avery lives, works in a small nowhere town, for his homophobic aunt, in a homophobic town. So he’s kept his true self a close secret. only one person knows. His BF Jenny. Until trouble shows up on a bike.
Chase, has been drifting or running from his uncle and life for a few years and ends up in the nowhere town. Decides to stay.
As Avery and Chase become friends, the best of friends, Avery starts to realize that this will be his one and only chance to touch, be touched, to love and possibly be loved.
Yes, it gets pretty emotional.
I liked these two, as they start realizing how much they have in common, we start seeing how good they are together. And yes, some people are going to peg it as GFY, and you could, but hints are dropped throughout on Chase’s side that leads you to think, bi.
Great ending, HFN, and so much more.
