“I guess if the worst thing I’m doomed to in life is mediocre sex, my life isn’t too bad.”
Self-starter and business analyst Zach Keller is living his dream life. He spends his days working from home in his favorite Tolkien t-shirts and pajamas while mothering his best friend-slash-roommate. The fact that his sex life is a bust and his love life is nonexistent? Unimportant. After his college boyfriend berated him for his unconventional desires, Zach doesn’t plan on sharing that part of himself ever again, anyway.
“I’m tired of feeling like I missed out on something by not going to college.”
Craig Pela isn’t lonely. He has tons of friends and weekends packed with activity. He hasn’t needed anyone since he left home at eighteen and never looked back. But everyone around him is moving forward in life, while he still works the same retail job at the same video game store, and it’s making him question his life choices. After all, he doesn’t want to be the loser still playing video games at fifty, does he?
As their relationship develops, Zach’s shy nature melts away to reveal an irrepressible geek that charms the pants off Craig. And Craig’s kind patience and ability to match him obscure quote for quote leaves Zach wondering if he’s finally met the man he can be his true self with. After all, how can someone else love you when you keep a part of yourself hidden?
Only with You is not only the first book in the Only Colorado series but also the writer’s debut novel which is really hard to believe while reading it. This was a huge and also wonderful surprise for me as I fell in love with the writing style right away. I cannot wait to read more by JD Chambers.
Only with You is a fascinating, kinky, heartwarming and very entertaining romance novel. We get to meet two unique and lovable guys who have a rare kind of journey to happiness together. I truly love every detail in this book, every detail that leads to various emotions, funny and heartbreaking scenes, and a rocky, kinky road to a happily ever after. Sharing our deepest darkest secrets with a complete stranger is not easy. And every new relationship starts out like this. You gotta trust a stranger with your feelings, heart, body and soul. If you get burnt once it’s even more difficult.
One of our MCs, Zack, has some amazing kinky fantasies he is willing to live without if he can avoid being embarrassed and humiliated again. But then he meets Craig and feeling a deep connection he might change his mind. Sharing those fantasies needs some serious communication and we get to live through a few awkward and heartbreaking moments until our guys are willing to talk. However, as soon as they open up to each other, nothing can stop their love for each other and only the kinky sky is the limit of their future sexual adventures.
The writing has a great flow, a witty, understated kind of humor and palpable emotions. Job very well done.
If you enjoy out of the ordinary characters and situations, spiced up with some sizzling kinky sexy-time, great friends, a bit of family drama, this is a good choice for you and I’m sure you’re gonna enjoy this story as much as I did. Highly recommended.
