Taller, Meaner, Darker

TMD Book 2

Once again we enjoy the trials and tribulations of Jackson and Gavin. Gavin’s wife Chrissie died and came back in the body of Jackson. The first book was about Gavin discovering, accepting, and learning to love her in the form of a tall, mean and dark man. When we left them, they were enjoying the new paradigms of their relationship. Now Jackson/Chrissie is really getting into her new body and is anxious to discover more about her new sexuality.

Gavin is hurt but intrigued with Jackson’s new interest. Jackson wants to try a menage with Luke, a young man who has found himself in a new body as well. The powers that be told him to find Jackson and Gavin to guide him, and as he works his way into their life and care, he also enflames them both. In addition, Jackson is having flashbacks of a life not lived by Chrissie. Gavin’s anxiety and fear add to his stress. As Jackson and Gavin explore things with Luke, they strive to help him find his own way, without being in bed with them.

Amusing as well as hot, this glimpse into the aftermath of the first story was entertaining. While Jackson doesn’t "swish" he does display some feminine traits that never fail to amuse. But his possessive side also makes itself known, and that’s steamy. Poor Gavin struggles with his own attraction to Luke, while trying to hang on to what he and Jackson have found together. With side stories about friends intermingling in their lives, this was a good read.
