Watching Jude’s cam show stirs desires Shawn’s always denied…
Shawn is adrift. Recently graduated, he’s stuck in a dead-end job that barely pays the bills. His girlfriend dumped him, his friends have moved on, and he’s still in Plymouth—going nowhere.
Jude is a student living in the same shared house. Out and proud, he’s everything Shawn’s been running from since he hit puberty. When Shawn discovers Jude works as a cam boy, he can’t resist the urge to watch one of his shows. It makes Shawn want things that scare him, yet his fascination forces him to confront his attraction.
Keen to explore his bicurious side, Shawn suggests they do a show together. Jude agrees, and things get complicated—and kinky—fast. But Jude isn’t looking to get involved with someone so deep in the closet. If Shawn’s going to get what he wants, he needs to find the courage to stop hiding from himself and be honest about who he is.
This book was positively FILTHY and I loved every minute. I must tell you that it was difficult to read it today. I was at the hospital with my husband who was having a minor outpatient procedure. I was in the waiting room for four hours, and in between people watching, I read this book. It was seriously hot. With a Capital H. I felt like a total perv, but in a good way.
You might remember the character of Shawn from previous books in the series, but even if you haven’t read the series, this book works on its own. You might not know who all the housemates are, but for the interaction between the two MCs you really don’t need to.
Shawn is a straight lad, having just broken up with his long-term girlfriend. When he walks into his housemate Jude’s room one night after knocking but getting no response, he is totally floored to find Jude jacking off in front of an internet cam. He runs from the room, but not before noting the site name on the screen in front of Jude.
He does what every straight guy would do. (sarcasm implied) He runs down to his room and watches Jude’s internet cast. But why is it turning him on? Is he a creeper if he is jacking off to the image of his housemate who is in turn jacking off for public display on the video feed?
I really enjoyed this story. There was a lot of sex, but enough story to keep it flowing. I’m not usually into the late ‘discovery’ that a character might be bisexual, but it worked in this case. I’d love to see more of these two.
As always, Jay Northcote presents an excellent read. His books flow so smoothly, and never fail to bring a smile to my face at one point or another. I highly recommend this one, whether you’ve read the previous ones or not. That said, I recommend the previous three as well, so why not pick up all four!
