college Grey and Paul went their separate ways. Although they
were close friends and lovers, both men had lives to live...on
opposite coasts. Five years later the reality of their
situations isn't quite what either envisioned. When Grey
reaches out to Paul in a letter, the two quickly begin a
regular correspondence. What starts with friendly, yet
serious, letters intensifies into flirty sexual exchanges.
Even after all this time, the connection is still there. The
sex was always spectacular, and Grey and Paul remained friends
after the split, but Paul wonders what they are really doing
now. Where is all this going? Where can it really go with
3000 miles between them?
sweet, Rough Draft is a completely satisfying
erotic romance. It begins with a series of letters between
Grey and Paul, and then mixes in some standard prose. The
letters grabbed my attention and enabled me to truly get to
know the characters. Paul and Grey are engaging, real
people. Neither is perfect, but both are utterly lovable.
Their relationship is never easy and it's a downright tangled
mess at times. I wondered if there was a way through their
angst and hurt, but this difficulty makes the resolution
wholly gratifying and believable. Without giving away any
spoilers, there is a later revelation that almost left me in
tears. Heartbreaking and romantic, it totally changes the
story. I absolutely love Chris Owen and Jodi Payne’s
Rough Draft, and I Joyfully Recommend it!
