Satin (A material World #2) by K.C. Wells – released July 6, 2017. Story 4.25*, Passion/Emotion 5*, Sizzle Points 4.5*
Detective Joel Hunter has been chronically unlucky at love and has never connected with the right woman. Prior relationships have left Joel and his partners less than excited about each other and certainly without passion.
He is on a stakeout when he is intrigued by a gorgeous singer named Satin – cue red satin dress. When Satin approaches Joel one evening in the club, Joel discovers that he was entirely wrong about Satin. Satin is not a gorgeous woman but a female impersonator named Ross. Further, this is one of the several jobs held by Ross including school dance instructor and ballet dancer.
This is a relationship story with age differential and a story about remaining open to learning more about oneself. Ross is an interesting young man, with a passion for ballet and a desire for a relationship that he can trust and count on. He has been let down so many times in the past. As the two men become closer ‘friends’, Ross is hopeful for more while Joel although acknowledging attachment, doesn’t take the time to reflect and define his own feelings.
Is there any hope at all for a relationship for a ‘straight’ police detective and a gay ballet dancer? The primary emotions while reading this story are hope and anticipation. Follow me on Facebook MainelyStories and on MainelyStories.com.
