Finally, Dave Henderson can be 100% himself, live as a proud and gay ex-marine.  The Corps had been good to him, but the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ policy wasn’t working anymore for Dave.  Civilian life is coming together with a job at a solid law firm, a nice apartment, followed by Friday and Saturday nights prowling at various clubs – making up for all he missed the last few years.

A party given by a neighbor introduces Dave to a guy who literally blows him away.  He decides to take things slower with Jack, there’s something special about him.  In fact, everything is going great except for club owner Franklin Venchenzo who won’t take ‘no’ for an answer no matter what Dave does.  Dave is beginning to feel like he’s balanced between heaven and hell.  One thing is for sure, something’s got to change, soon.

Jack and Dave focuses primarily on Dave who has done his duty and now he’s spreading his wings until he meets sweet Jack and falls hard.  This story is written in a concise, almost diary like manner in the beginning and then the plot finds its way to let the romance unfold.  Jack and Dave has lusty sex, gentle moments and terrifying drama.  For those who prefer a tale without ‘flowery’ wording, Jack and Dave is just right.
