James Justin doesn't normally cruise
biker bars. His Friday nights are normally spent at home,
alone. Wanting to do something exciting after being passed
over for a project, the rising architect finds himself in a
rowdy dive surrounded by leather wearing, tattooed, bikers.
Soon his attention is drawn to a group playing pool.
Especially attractive is the brawny cowboy with the sexy
Bram Lord spots James staring at him and likes what he sees.
Inviting James outside, Bram maneuvers him into the alley
behind the bar and into an intense sexual encounter. Bram is
stronger, bigger and more forceful than James. Everything
James finds exciting in a man.
Bram, having enjoyed the one night stand, asks to see James
again. A long-term relationship looks promising for James and
Bram who share intense passion and common interests. But can
James overcome his secret insecurity and vulnerability to find
love with the open and confident Bram?
A Bit of Rough is sexy, exciting and tender. Yes, I said
tender. The love story between the shy, but charming, James
and the rugged, caring Bram is tender and romantic. I
especially enjoyed the loving manner in which Bram protected
James. I'm jealous of James. Bram is simply yummy. Good
looking, strong, bold, secure, and down and dirty in the
bedroom. A delicious combination, not that James doesn't have
a lot to offer. He does. He's kind-hearted, charming, smart,
and the perfect sexual match for Bram.
Great character development, a solid plot and scrumptiously
erotic sex make for a well-written book. I enjoyed A Bit of
Rough so much, I've read it twice and look forward to reading
it again. For fans of gay erotica, Laura Baumbach's A Bit of
Rough is a must-read.
