Title: Rub Me the Right Way
Author: JM Snyder
Publisher: JMS Books
Characters: Mitch, Daryl
Sub-Genre: Contemporary, Erotic Romance
It isn’t that state trooper Mitch Adams doesn’t trust his boyfriend Daryl Danson. They’ve been in an exclusive relationship for eight years, the last five of which they’ve lived together. He knows Daryl isn’t interested in other guys, and he knows Daryl loves him.
But Mitch doesn’t like the fact that Daryl, a physical therapist turned professional masseuse, spends his working hours touching other people’s bodies. It’s hard to understand that the loving massages he receives in the bedroom aren’t the norm, especially since he’s never had a professional massage.
Mitch decides to do a little investigative work and discover for himself what exactly happens in the massage parlor. But when Daryl finds out about the appointment, he decides to give his lover a rub-down Mitch won’t soon forget.
Whew! JM Snyder definitely knows how to steam up a computer screen!! The great thing about this author is: not only does she write characters that live and breathe off of the written page, they also have an intense chemistry between them that will not be denied.
For such a short, erotic read, it is definitely a very satisfying one. I really liked the backstory of how Mitch and Daryl met and loved the strength of their love and passion for each other. I understood why Mitch had some reservations about Daryl’s job, and I absolutely adored how Daryl quickly shows Mitch that he has NOTHING to worry about.
If you are looking for a quick, sexy read with likeable characters, Rub Me the Right Way is definitely for you! Also, I have to mention that if you haven’t read Henry and Jim (get your hankies ready, but it is a stunning story) and Persistence of Memory (also a hanky read but with a beautiful ending) by this author, I encourage you to look these two books up too. All three books show this author’s talent at writing very different stories, setting and heroes. Ms. Snyder knows her characters and it’s obvious she loves them as much as I usually end up loving them too. I highly recommend this book and hope you check out the other two (as well as her other reads) as well.
