"Intensely erotic, Lickety Split is a rough-n-tumble cowboy romance as fierce as it is tender....This blissful gem of a novel will crack your heart wide open and show you, page after searing page, that maybe, just maybe, you can go home again." Emily Jordan for Salon.com
"Damon Suede writes explosively hot, hypnotically well-written gay romance. In Lickety Split, he once again takes an archetypal gay erotic fantasy and uses his formidable talents to cast it with two utterly real, unforgettable and deeply sympathetic heroes. Simply put, Damon Suede is one of the most talented and versatile writers of gay romance at work today, if not the most." Christopher Rice, NY Times Bestselling Author of A Density of Souls
"MUST-READ ROMANCE! If you thought Damon Suede's firefighters were hot, grab some ice before you read his cowboy! Lickety Split is raunchy, gritty and sweetened with sugar on top...Damon's typical lush language and abundant humor make this book a must read. His way with words beautifully blends with his storytelling skills." Mary Grzesik for HEA/USA TODAY
"Damon Suede's Lickety Split will leave you longing for a dip in a cool pond, the glow of fireflies, and forbidden nights with the lusty older cowboy of your dreams. Equal parts gritty, elegant and beautifully real, this emotional coming-home story is filled with breathtaking imagery, enticingly flawed characters and a generous helping of earthy, edgy kink. The unlikely romance kept me off balance in such a brilliant way that I didn't want the book to end. This author is always worth waiting for!" R.G. Alexander, author of the bestselling Finn Factor series
"I always know going into a Damon Suede book that it'sgoing to be packed full of emotion andit's going to be hot as hell. Evenso, I was shocked by the things LICKETYSPLIT made me feel... The emotionshit me unexpectedly. I wasn't prepared for how they snuck up on me at theweirdest times...LICKETY SPLIT issexually raw and emotionally gritty." Fran for Under the Covers
"What if I told you Damon will deliver his most vexing yet hottest love tangle to date, would you buy it? Well, you should....Suede has a rare and remarkable ability to turn a moment into a force. A rope coils into a promise, a sweet cup of coffee brews into a storm of emotions, and a two-step becomes a partnership. The power of the love between these two men is boundless and unrestrained...I thought my kindle was going to spontaneously combust. I know it's the gorgeous setting sun on the cover but it might as well be flames because this was a scorcher... You best git on this one here right quick. Y'all don't want to miss this cowboy and his pup." BookUnfunk

If you have trouble with the way Patch speaks, and Tucker, then pay attention to where Patch is, his choices. Every setting speaks to his state of mind. This is masterful storytelling. It's all from Patch is dragged spitting and clawing back into his childhood town to deal with his parents' funeral and the sale of the farm. Nothing about his evolution is easy or simple or even clear to him most of the time. Particularly his messed-up obsession with Tucker.
Many of the less-glowing reviews of this novel centered on the dialect of Southern that is rural east Texan. I'm from rural Montana, so the mannerisms and a little of their slang was familiar. The dialog did get a bit murky for me now & then. I may have missed a thing or two. But it's all clear enough in context, given the personalities, and would've lost something important had the author not stuck with rural east-Texas colloquialisms.
I have never seen so many ways of saying "cock" in one book in my life. The sex scenes were unexpected in that only what Tucker wants that's shockingly new to Patch is detailed. I liked that.
I loved the damn dog. :)
I saw one review that seemed critical of how it ends. This is, ahem, a romance. Take away the happy-for-now or happily-ever-after, and it's not a romance. That reviewer's blaming their reaction on the writer, when the reviewer didn't understand what they were reading. Tsk.
Look, this is a book based on deep, unabashed, filthy and roaring sexual attraction. The 43-year-old Tucker and the 22-year-old Patch could not be a more incongruous coupling, but when you get through all the history and machinations surrounding these two, and the East Texas town in which this tale takes place, you will not put it down except to breathe deeply.
The thing that holds it together, for me at least, is the brilliant use of Texas idioms and dialect throughout. Damon Suede has created a milieu and scene after scene which defines the territory, and allows Tucker and Patch to mark their territories accordingly.
Shocking, surprising, salacious. Get it fast.
A casual hook-up with boyhood crush and former coach, Tucker Biggs, stirs up all the bad memories and insecurities he had as a teenager but also changes his perspective when he discovers the other side of his story. There's always two sides to a story and Tucker helps him see his hometown and life from a different perspective. Turns out there are good memories of home to go along with the bad. That real love is possible in the most unlikely places. And taking things slow and easy is not always a bad thing, but can also be sooooo good, if done right and Tucker has had years to practice slow and easy.
Love a good, steamy romance with heart and this one definitely has a lot of heart. Turns out there is no place like home if you have someone worth coming home to.
I didn't highlight the many phrases, witticisms, quotes, wise-ass and just plain wise words he wrote for his characters, because I was caught up in reading the story. However, I will on my second read, for sure (shore).
