Keeping Lance picks up three years after Taking Lance, and while Rick and Lance see each other for major events, they haven’t been an item in that time. Lance is off at college and Rick has been with another woman. Lance also has a partner, Marc. Lance is young and needs to get out into the world. Both guys are hung-up on one another but neither will fess up. Rick feels Lance is too young to commit to him and it won’t work. But they still f@@@ when they get together. However, it is now Lance’s 21st birthday and things are not going so well for him. His biological mother, Jenna, somehow gets his phone number and is her usual self, his car breaks down in the boonies and he needs to rely on Rick to come and pick him up. Mind you, Lance makes the most of his time spent at the gas station he ends up at with the attendant, Brad.
But things do not go smoothly. Rick’s new woman, Claire, makes it clear she doesn’t like Lance… when Rick is not around to hear. She feels that Lance is after Rick’s money, but nothing could be further from the truth. Lance senses Rick may be distancing himself but he is just as attracted to Rick. And Rick is more than glad to see Lance again, just the stubborn pride and fear of the age difference stops him from letting himself go at an emotional level. But he has a new car for Lance for his 21st birthday. Rick’s birthday present to Lance is pretty good, oh, and the car is too.
Rick wants Lance but he pushes him away when Lance finally comes out and lets him now how he feels, that age is just a number. Rick thinks age is an issue. He makes the argument that Marc is a good guy. He is closer to Lance’s age anyway. While Rick makes sure that Lance is set up financially, he did that in the first book, he is a bonehead and pushes too hard. This time Lance takes off for good, Rick realises what he had, and what he has done.
On top of this arc, there is Rick’s ex wife, Jenna, plus Claire, and other people scheming and causing trouble in the background. The plot from Part 1 of Taking lance, is brought together with this story really well. I won’t say anymore as it is not long.
Keeping Lance has mostly gay sex scenes but there are het scenes and bi scenes. Rick does have a girlfriend in the beginning, and later on he meets a married couple who like to swing…and the wife is a gouger. Ouch! is all I can say. But in this scene, which is pretty nastee sex, there is a young guy named Travis who is caught up in it all - and Rick does him right – he definitely has a back story. I hope he gets his own story soon.
Although Keeping Lance is the second part of the Taking Lance series, it can be read as a standalone. The author makes sure the reader is caught up at the beginning. However, I enjoyed both stories equally, they’re sexy, erotic, well written and edited, and they also have an interesting story or two going on. And while this is erotica, it is also a kinky romance as well. I love the closure on Rick and Lance’s relationship. Both are well worth reading, especially as they do lead to Rick and Lance as a couple. I look forward to more set in this world. 4.5 Stars!
