Impulse, #3

What can I say about Impulse Velocity the latest book from Amelia C. Gormley? Even though it is not the best book in the series I liked it and I am sad to see the series end with book 3. The first book brought us Derrick. He was a handy man who had been celibate for ten years. His other half was Gavin, a recently single gay man who was struggling with his personal life and in order to prove to himself he still had it he decided to flirt with Derrick which brought us to book two. In Impulse Acceleration we hear more about Derrick’s story and where he came from.

In Acceleration Derrick has a lot of choices. He must make some of which directly involve Gavin. We had to struggle as Derrick struggled and listen to his story as he made decisions that we ourselves make in life.

That brings us to book three; In Impulse Velocity we learn more about Gavin even more than in book one and even more so than in book two. Book three is all about Gavin’s choices and his story, some of which involve Derrick and most of which involved his Ex-boyfriend Lukas.

I liked the book and I loved the series. I am far more likely to pick up another book written by Amelia Gormley, but I really hope that she will make another part in the series.

I recommend this series to anyone who loves stories about gay couples or BDSM or even both.

Book Blurb for Velocity

Reaching Optimum Speed

For Derrick and Gavin, the holiday season is filled with the promise of new beginnings. Gavin’s officially moving in, and after the new year, they’ll begin house hunting. But they both know all the talk of gift exchange, whose holiday ornaments go where, and what repairs and remodels will be needed to put Derrick’s house on the market is only a smoke screen.

Before the holiday season is over, Gavin will have the final verdict on whether or not his dangerously delusional ex, Lukas, infected him with HIV. No matter how good Gavin’s chances appear with the three-month hurdle already passed, neither he nor Derrick know what the future holds for them.

The holidays have always been a time of loss and mourning for Derrick, but now he has to stay strong as Gavin’s own fears and doubts assail him relentlessly. And when Lukas returns, unexpectedly penitent amid troubling revelations, Gavin has to ask himself whether he can offer Derrick the future he truly deserves, or whether these first few months of happiness are the best they will ever get.
