Jay McGhee may be forty-three, but he’s sure he can still do
his job. He resents anyone who insinuates otherwise. When
he meets Frank Kaplan at a fire, he’s more annoyed at the
fact that the younger man is taking him to the doctor than
he is interested in the guy. Then he gets to know Frank,
and discovers the man is interesting as well as sexy, but
he’s sure his small town would never accept a gay fireman.
At any rate, he doesn’t have much in common with a
long-haired, tattooed writer sixteen years his junior. He’s
determined that they will just be friends. Too bad he’s not
the only one that’s attracted…
enjoyed Colliding in Free Fall. Jay is a
great character. He’s a stubborn, private person who’s also
loyal and kind. He hasn’t had much opportunity to be truly
happy, but he’s content with his life for the most part.
Frank, on the other hand, has experienced more highs and
lows in his life than Jay has, despite the years between
them. I liked the way their relationship develops slowly.
Rather than hopping into bed, they get to know each other
and become friends first. The sexual aspect of their
relationship is also slow, but hot. The conflict is
realistic and not overdramatic. Those in the mood for a
sweet read with plenty of emotional development and a bit of
an ‘opposites attract’ vibe will be sure to enjoy
Colliding in Free Fall.
