Blurb: Book One of the Special Delivery Series
When your deepest, darkest fantasy shows up, get on board.
Sam Keller knows he’ll never find the excitement he craves in Middleton, Iowa—not while he’s busting his ass in nursing school and paying rent by slaving away in a pharmacy stockroom. Then Sam meets Mitch Tedsoe, an independent, long-haul trucker who makes a delivery to a shop across the alley. Innocent flirting quickly leads to a fling, and when Mitch offers to take him on a road trip west, Sam jumps at the chance for adventure. Mitch is sexy, funny and friendly, but once they embark on their journey, something changes. One minute he’s the star of Sam’s every x-rated fantasy, the next he’s almost too much a perfect gentleman. And when they hit the Las Vegas city limit, Sam has a name to pin on Mitch’s malady: Randy.
For better or for worse, Sam grapples with the meaning of friendship, letting go, growing up—even the meaning of love—because no matter how far he travels, eventually all roads lead home.
Warning: This story contains trucker fantasies, threesomes and kinky consensual sex.
Available February 2014 from Samhain Publishing and wherever books are sold. This book has been previously published and has been revised from its original release.
Review: Reading Special Delivery again is like meeting with an old friend for coffee. It feels like home, you know you are going to love spending time with him.
“In the deserted men´s restroom at the back of Middleton Community College, Sam Keller knelt on the tile, braced his hands against Keith Jameson´s thighs and broke his mother´s heart.”
This is how we meet Sam for the first time, and it makes sense. Sam knows what he wants but after years and years of being told that it´s wrong to want those things he is ready to run away given the opportunity. Sam wants to find that perfect combination between love and kinky sex.
“He wanted to be loved and cherished, yes. But he also wanted to be fucked.”
And so he happens to meet Mitch Tedsoe, a man that knows a thing or two about being slutty and kinky.
So, a boy that is on his way to balance what he wants with who he is, and a man that is running away from a few mistakes in his past, join in a cross country trip that will help them find themselves and each other.
A journey that is full of high voltage sex scenes, Heidi can surely deliver quality rough sex, as well as intimate tender love. A journey that leads them both to self discovery and forgiveness.
Even though this is not your traditional romance, I am here to tell you I am in love with Sam and Mitch.
This book is one of those that you keep on your “naughty” list. it has all the things I look for in a story.
Great characters, because honestly, Sam and Mitch´s chemistry is something to die for. I haven’t found many pairings that I love as much as I do these two. Mitch playing the butch type and he is such a possessive, caring partner. And Sam, with all his needs and wants, puts even Mitch and Randy in jeopardy, because as much as he is kinky he is shy and innocent.
Amazing sex scenes. Want to explore the world of BDSM? Join Mitch and Sam at the sex shop! Nothing is too much, they explore their limits, they are honest about what they want and how they feel. Reading about how Sam finally internalizes that he is not the whore they had him believe he was…well is all Mitch´s doing ,but is pretty awesome to see.
Plot, yes, plot. There is a story here, not just the sexy times. Where Mitch is coming from, his secrets and his fears. Meeting Randy, I wish I could keep him. Sam´s doubts and insecurities. These are strong and present each step of the way.
And love, because even if we didn’t start that way, everything leads them to that moment.
This is why I keep coming back to Special Delivery. I know what I am going to find once I open the book to that first chapter.
I know that I am going to enjoy each time Mitch and Sam are together. I know that I am going to cry each time Sam talks about coming out to his mom. I know I am going to make myself a cup of peppermint tea at some point during my reading, just to imagine I’m drinking it with Mitch. I know I’m going to get all hot and bothered once we are out on the town with Randy.
“He gave himself to them completely, with no guilt, no shame, no reservation, and in that surrender he found a quiet, shining pearl he had never known existed – himself. He was Sam. He was Sunshine. He was Peaches.”
If you feel like your heart can take it, grab this book as soon as you can and enjoy the experience of meeting Sam, Mitch and Randy.
