Publisher's Summary

Josh met Drew for the first time at his sister's wedding to the 27-year-old marine. The 18-year-old Josh, a college freshman, is on Christmas break and offers to help Drew move his belongings from Denver to San Diego. It is the dead of winter, and the two young men find themselves stranded by a blizzard while crossing the Rockies. They are fortunate enough to make it to an old motel where they are welcomed by Molly, the motel's elderly owner; they secure the last available room.

Learning that the mountain highway has been closed in both directions and will be for at least three days, the marine and college boy can only hunker down and make the most of it. The storm eventually takes out the power, and as the thermostat in the old room plummets, Drew shares how he and his marine buddy, Nelson, once survived a frigid night in a cave at the mercy of Afghanistan's arctic-like mountains.

Reluctantly, Josh decides sleeping essentially naked in the marine's military sleeping bag next to the bona fide stud, probably beats freezing to death.

Being stuck in a blizzard with a new relative can breed familiarity or possibly contempt.

This is a fun and romantic story about coming to terms with a new and perhaps unusual lifestyle. The story does not end with a cliffhanger but rather a sweet HEA. This short 30,000-word novella is not meant for anyone under 18 years of age, nor is it intended for adults who are offended by detailed male-to-male sex or a bisexual lifestyle.

Note: This book was previously published under the same title. This second edition has been updated with an augmented ending to enhance listener enjoyment; also, many grammatical errors have been corrected and some syntactic structure reworded.

Cheating, Manipulation & Distorted Stereotypes

*semi spoilers*
This story is entirely about cheating on the main character’s wife w/ her virgin younger brother one week after the wedding. Neither MC seems to even pause to think about this, until the end where the manipulator has been manipulated & is the now the “victim". The circumstances that “necessitate” their sexual situation are very improbable, but could be ignored if the rest of the story was good. All the consent is manipulated, which adds to the ick factor of the pseudo incest element. Its unsafe sex w/ questionable prep. Negatively stereotyped bisexuality is used as an excuse for misogyny and internalized homophobia.

The ending is just more manipulation.
Overall I think its a waste of good narration.

Hot and Steamy story

This was an exciting younger/older, first-time, and step-bro story with plenty of steamy sex scenes and a great story line. There is an interesting twist at the end that I never saw coming.

Reviewed for Audiobook Boom 💥

Thought I New where this story was heading, just a brother-in-law helping the other to move, journey interrupted by a storm casual encounter no big deal. Well there is an unexpected twist, that totally changes this little tale and makes this storyline very interesting, a shame it’s just a novella.
Enjoyed the narration by Darcy Stark

Hot and Spicy with a Surprise Twist

I really enjoyed this short listen. It's hot and spicy, but still sweet, with a surprise twist I never saw coming. The narration was great with really well expressed emotions. I would love to hear more from this story, this author and/or this narrator.
Very enjoyable erotic listen.

I admit that I was skeptical...

When this audiobook first popped up, I almost didn’t give it a second glance. However, I did listen to the sample and thought Darcy Stark did an amazing job and wanted to know more. I actually downloaded the book version on KU to see if it was something I was interested in before requesting the audiobook version (and read it three times, haha). I actually was pleasantly surprised by what I found. It wasn’t anything overly descriptive and didn’t delve into both characters feelings and angst deeply, but I don’t think the author meant it to be that way. It was just enough for the storyline to progress and hit the right marks for a short, erotic book. Taboo brother-in-law storyline? Check. Stranded? Check. Those two elements alone hit the right buttons, plus one heck of a twist to top it off. There were more than adequate smexy times, which I love. The narration was top notch and helped you understand both Josh and Drew’s different personalities. I did end up speeding up the narration to 1.25x, but that’s mostly a personal preference. Overall, a good short, erotic tale with stellar narration!

Narrator Darcy Stark gives a perfectly smooth and sexy performance, that will leave listeners with an unquenchable thirst and hunger of the lustful and shameless kind.
He is definitely a favorite narrator, and it sounds like he is getting better. He has a soft unique and sensual voice and the ambidexterity of his talented deliverance of dialogues makes the experience feel real and believable. It is very easy to listen to him.

What is up with the cover? The story is about a marine who survived Afghanistan.

But, still the plot was original with a twist that I won't reveal. The novelette is very well written and one of the best erotic fictions I've heard this year. Nothing feels rushed, the detail is enough to entice the listener to continue listening. The scenes were very well done and it does not feel like cookie cutter material.

I definitely recommend this high quality erotic audiobook.

Happy Listening.
