Blurb:He’d only ever taken the short run…

Ryker Bacca had seen plenty of lot lizards at the truck stops along his route, but he preferred the anonymity of the restroom glory hole. In and done with each man getting what he needed. But this time was different. Not only did the guy on the other side have a mouth made of pure magic, but he managed to make Ryker break his number one rule: never get involved.

Once he’s in, Ryker can’t seem to say no to the blond-haired, blue-eyed cutie Jody Wilson. It isn’t long before Ryker’s breaking all his rules, and finding a connection with the one person in the world who seems to understand him. Irresistible temptation lures him deeper, but the last thing Ryker expected was to find a man worth the long haul.

My Review: Ryker is getting one of the best blow jobs he has ever had at a truckstop gloryhole when he is rudely interrupted. The young man Jody has quite the homophobic prick for a brother. Ryker intervenes when Jody’s older brother start punching and kicking him.Jody’s brother leaves him stranded at the truckstop without any money at all. Ryker sees that Jody is devastated and tries to help him out of his predicament by taking him along for the ride. Even though Ryker is very attracted to the 23 year old Jody , he decides not to take advantage of him. He is very hesitant to take Jody with him on his long haul , because he knows that it will test his willpower and he is so very right. Jody tries to get with Ryker at every opportunity. Jody is very attracted to the big mountain man, but he also knows that Ryker is the only thing stopping him from being homeless.
Ryker finds a few odd jobs for Jody to do, such as sorting out his paperwork and organizing the space in the rig. Jody proves his efficacy by doing the jobs properly, but what he really wants is to service Ryker in the back of his truck. Things really heat up between them when Jody finds Ryker’s stash of smutty books. Jody is very intrigued by the dog-eared bookmarked pages and his aim is to act on these fantasies. Ryker is only just a man and it soon becomes really hard to resist Jody. They have a very compelling chemistry and Ryker tries to ease Jody gently into his first time.
Jody sees Ryker for the big gentle bear that he is. While waiting and teasing each other in the truck, they find a deeper connection with each other that goes beyond a simple hookup. Ryker sees beyond Jody’s innocence that he is a sensual lover who can also be a freak in his bed. The heat between these two is so intense and they really heat up the pages with all the dirty talk ,rimjobs and blowjobs thrown in.
Once they start settling into something that feels like a relationship, trouble soon comes their way. Jody’s brother alleges that Ryker has kidnapped his ‘mentally unstable’ brother. Jody has a hard time proving Ryker’s innocence. In the end, he provokes his brother into showing his true colours. Finally, they are free to go and Ryker can’t wait to start his long haul with Jody and their stray dog Marshmallow. This was a really hot little package and I can’t wait to read more from this author. I give this my ratings of 4- lose the underwear.
