“Under Contract” 

Working under the impression that his site foreman disliked him and didn’t want to work him, Nick Cooper put in a request to be transferred to a new site.   Cooper never would have suspected that Ted Lucas’ cold demeanor and dismissive attitude was only a shield to hide his attraction to Cooper. 

 “Under Contract” is a very good story!  I felt a great connection between Lucas and Cooper and I liked them both, macho attitudes and all.  Both men were very good at hiding their true desire, which happened to be each other.  Once they opened up to each other it became very obvious they belonged with one another.  “Under Contract” is a fun and entertaining story.

 

“Over the Road”

 Stuck in traffic, truck driver Elliot Cochran strikes up a CB conversation with McLean, a fellow truck driver.  Identified only by the trucking company they work for the two men start an unusual friendship that moves from CB use to their cell phones.  After a while a voice over the phone isn’t enough for Elliot.  He needs and wants physical companionship as well and he finds that with Jimmy Vaughan, who is also a trucker.  Elliot becomes caught up in a strange love triangle, as he finds himself falling for the very real Jimmy Vaughan and McLean, whom he considers his best friend even though he is just a voice over the phone.

 I absolutely adored this story!  It’s a very well written and unique story idea. Madeleine Urban & Abigail Roux did a fantastic job with this.  “Over the Road” is sweet, loving, emotional and above all believable.  “Over the Road” has been added to my list of favorite stories.

 

Love Ahead is a fantastic anthology.  There are only two stories but each story is full length and very enjoyable.  I have already read each story more than once and I Joyfully Recommend Love Ahead.
