Scot and Jerry runaway from home headed for Las Vegas. When the car is about to stall out and really needing a place to rest, they happen to come across what looks like a deserted motel.
The motel and the three men that stay there are sexy, sex driven and creepy. Oliver who seems to be the front desk clerk, server, and maintenance man is the first to greet Scot and Jerry. Right away Scot is not sure about Oliver or the motel. Then they met Vincent who is basically the cook. After eating, things get weird then turn creepy. Oliver and Vincent decided to put on a “show” for Scot and Jerry before taking them to their room.
Fast forward lots of foreplay, sex and creepy mind games. Connor Maxwell enters the picture. Fast forward more foreplay, sex, and creepy mind games. Jerry and Scot are no longer on the same track with wanting to go to Vegas. Jerry wants to stay and be with Vincent and Oliver. Scot still wants to explore the world. Only now after lots of voyeurism, sex and mind games he only wants Connor. Will Connor be the “true one?”
I love this story. It was different and confused the crap out of me. I'm still confused, but who cares when its such an interesting story with lots of sex. Scot is a wonder person. His struggles are real. I didn't really like Jerry. Its like after a particular scene happens with Vincent, he completely ignores Scot, even when Scot is right in front of him. I'd love to read this story from Connor's point of view starting from before he arrived at the motel.
Honest review done by Arlyna for Alpha Book Club without influence from publisher or author.
Well, this was quite a fantastical book! This is a book about lust, love, and mystical magic of seduction. Even though this is in Scot’s pov it does connect five men. Scot is strongly linked with Connor. As I was reading this I really was filled with a sense of unease. I was really glad that a lot of my feelings, emotions, and questions mirrored Scots.
This motel of magic really does sort of stay a mystery until the very end. It’s such a powerful magic on the cusp of darkness.
There’s a lot of physical communication in this story as well. More touch than speak. Clare London has made this magical mystery also a sensual and very well written tale. You really are thrust into this story and suspended there. You’re left to your very own imagination in the end and I found that to be so fabulous.
I found myself pondering many things long after I closed the book. I really love how Clare structured the story and fleshed out these characters. The best character in this book (my opinion of course) would have to be the motel. It’s so alive and powerful and utterly intriguing.
Make this book a must read!
Scot, of 'Sweet, Summer Sweat' by Clare London, and his boyfriend, Jerry, are bound by their desire to escape their awful home lives and blindly run away together. Neither are sure where they are running to. All they know is that there is nothing for them where they are. In the middle of nowhere, they end up at a broken-down, yet seemingly magical old motel. Their stay here provides them with the opportunity to discover who they are and what they truly want.
At the motel Scot and Jerry are provided with hedonistic opportunities they have never even imagined. Hot, seductive, uninhibited young men, Oliver and Vincent, who drip of sensuality and seem to offer them everything they could possibly desire. Jerry almost immediately falls under the spell, but tries to resist it. He feels guilty about wanting to cheat on Scot. Scot is deeply affected by the sensual atmosphere of the motel that seems to provide every need even before they anticipate it, favorite foods, music, dancing, and, of course unlimited sex. Scott has always deferred to Jerry since he seems to be the more experienced of the two, but lately he has been questioning the validity of that line of thinking as well as his feelings for Jerry, whether he is the love of his life rather than just someone convenient.
Another thing on Scot's mind is the voice and smells that have come to him as long as he can remember and have become even stronger since he arrived at the motel. When Scot finally meets Connor Maxwell, he realizes that it's been Connor's “presence”, his voice that has been calling to Scot for a long time. Being at Maxwell's has intensified this communication between them. Still, Scot resists the temptation to give in, which, in his view, is to give up on living and exist here, basking in sensual satisfaction, in this magical, but surrealistic representation of living. Yet Scot knows that Connor is and has always been his one true love and he doesn't want to let him go. He has to decide whether to stay here with Connor, or go on with his life, possibly without him.
Clare has outdone herself in creating this decadent, sensual place where physical pleasure rules; one that offers unending gratification with no responsibility. But it comes at a price. It's not rewarding except in a hedonistic way. The men are scrumptious and the sexual encounters are almost indescribably vivid. To some this would be heaven but to others, hell. It depends upon what you want in life, to play it safe or take a chance and have even more than Maxwell's can offer.
If you like stories that are fantastically erotic with gorgeous men and unfathomable pleasure with mystical undertones, and a plot to boot, then you may enjoy this book as much as I did. Thanks, Clare, for the exceptionally enjoyable sexual romp combined seamlessly with a deeper meaning.

Sensual, sexy even, with an understated note of creepy, I experienced—felt—this story as much as I read it.Read more
