I was so proud of our down and out hero, David for rescuing someone in even worse shape than himself. And under the despondent ugly duckling's stinky, vomit splattered clown suit a surprise awaited. A lithe swan emerged after a quick clean up, with a mouth that definitely needed a soapy toothbrush. But our intrepid hero found Stan's mouthiness endearing, along with his handsome countenance and sexy body. His tears tugged at his rescuer's heart. His need shelter, food, coffee, aspirin, and sleep were things David felt compelled to supply.
So began the strange and sweet romance between two men who didn't know they needed each other until they found each other. This was a fun book. The dialogue was colorful. Each gave as good as he got. This was a quick romance, but as the MCs admitted it felt like they had known each other for a lot longer. I usually enjoy a slow build up, but this turned out to be just right. Despite his misgivings David took a huge risk, but his reward of companionship, dialogue boxing, sharing coffee making, and out of this world sex was well worth it.
If you love Sue's books or are looking to try one...this is a good pick.
The premise of a too-cool-to-be-true London ice-cream parlor just happening to be the serendipitous location where ten completely different men accidentally meet to form five completely ingenious couples is laced with laughter, off-the-wall plots, a lot of sex (sometimes), some rough sex (sometimes), but always hope, will have you buying the next one and the next one and the next one and the next one, and hoping for a sixth (or maybe plenty of others) each time.
Each book is an easy novella-length palate cleanser you can pick up anywhere you want to read but not deal with the next chapter of a full meal book--or really, as a just dessert for any other one you finish. Cheers!
Will the clown and his rescuer get a happy ending? Light and fluffy as an ice-cream cocktail. Loved the title and the cover, and had fun reading it.
As relationship starts go, the first meeting between David and Stan is far from promising. David has just stormed out of the office of the woman he had hoped would be the agent he needs to kick of his writing career and is in a rotten mood. Stan is dead drunk and being sick in a gutter. The two should have never exchanged a word except that David, for reasons unknown even to himself, decides to help the sad man dressed as a clown.
When David discovers Stan is more or less homeless after he walked in on his partner in bed with his best friend, David offers the sad clown his sofa for the night. A strong and immediate attraction combined with more practical considerations turns the one night solution into a more permanent arrangement. The two men may just be exactly what the other needs.
This book was written in Sue Brown’s smooth and easy to read style. The characters are recognisable and sympathetic although both have their quirks and issues. Sure, they get intimate very quickly and seem to be falling for each other almost instantly but, in the context of the story it came across as believable. The one issue the reader might have about Stan’s motivation – is he just on the rebound – is recognised and addressed by the characters and therefore not an issue. And I have to say this book ends on one of the best lines ever.
This is the second book in the ‘With a Kick’ series but I can’t say not having read the first book was an issue; this story stands completely on its own. Having said that, now that I know this is part of a series, I want to read the prequel too. And I really hope there will be a story about ‘With a Kick’s’ owner and his employee.
Overall this was another entertaining read by an author I’m growing increasingly fond of.
