An erotic m/m romance that poses an interesting conundrum about what is morally and ethically acceptable given that these partners would not be creating a child. The intimate encounters are definitely spicy but it strained credulity to think that, having waited such an inordinate amount of time to consummate their relationship, it would need to take place at such an inappropriate venue. I had a bit of trouble believing that Terry’s mom could wait quite so long to notice how unhappy her son is and the solution seemed a little too convenient to me. This is still a fun quick read but definitely requires a suspension of disbelief.
