What is “normal”?
When Brandon Kenner shows up at Kasey Ralston’s garage with a 1970 Chevelle SS 454, Kasey is smitten by both the man and his car. But Kasey is hiding an embarrassing secret: his love for old muscles goes beyond what most would consider normal. His unusual fetish has kept Kasey isolated—estranged from his family and even distant from his coworkers.
But when Brandon figures out the hot mechanic’s secret, he’s not repulsed. In fact, he finds Kasey intriguing, and he’s determined to have him for himself.
Everything about Brandon revs Kasey’s engine, and he’s more than willing to get down and dirty with the charming man. What worries Kasey is what will happen after. Is there any chance of a future for them? In the past, expecting anything long-term has only led to heartbreak. But Kasey can’t help hoping that, despite Kasey’s fetish, Brandon will be the exception.
What sealed the deal for me with this story was without a doubt, Brandon. He was so patient, caring, considerate, and sweet with Kasey. Throughout the story, Kasey was so skittish ready to runaway at every turn but Brandon’s patience and unwillingness to give up really made this story, so good.
On the surface, Brandon and Kasey couldn’t be any more different. Brandon a successful lawyer with a menagerie of classic muscle cars and Kasey a grease monkey who couldn’t fathom ever having money enough to buy just one.
These two meet at the shop that Kasey works in. The attraction between the two isn’t immediate but once it sparks it completely engulfs both characters.
Considering this is relatively short we don’t get much of a back story between the characters. We find out things in Kasey’s past that bleeds into his character and the same with Brandon. I think it was just the right amount of foreshadowing for them both.
There’s a smokin’ hot virtual, mutual hand job scene that is blow the top of your head off, hot. These two both have kinks that work very well together and just deepens there connection.
I really liked this addition to the series. I liked both characters and the addition of fetishes.
