Austin Puett is a college student with dreams of becoming a professional hockey player. Everything he does is to further his career including light classes while he is playing hockey and heavy on classes when in the off season. All around him are his fellow college students and hockey players coming to grips with who they are and their sexuality. Austin lashes out against his flamboyant gay roommate. So Austin has been told he needs to respect those around him or he will lose not just his job but his room in college. This drags him down a path to addressing his sexuality.
Liam Williams is a porn star Dom who goes by the name Master Puck. He is attracted to Austin. While Austin sends mixed signals as to what he wants he continues to go out of his way to get to know Austin. Liam only wants Austin outside of the porn business. Liam does a wonderful job of keeping titles addressing who Austin is away as Austin gradually realizes he is gay and gets comfortable in his own screen.
The chemistry between Liam and Austin is blistering. I enjoyed that Liam pushed Austin’s boundaries and helped Austin become comfortable in his own skin. The sex scenes were scorching while pushing boundaries as what is expectable. I enjoyed how Austin became at ease with himself as the story went along.
Straight Shooter is the third book in the Rear Entrance Video series by Heidi Belleau. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I found this book well written while it pushes boundaries. With a porn star Dom, and a sub so in the closet he is unwilling for most of the story to acknowledge he is gay. The main and secondary characters were interesting and engaging. Overall, this was a good story.
This macho jock has a crooked little secret.
College hockey player Austin Puett is in trouble. Unless he starts treating his flamboyantly gay roommate with respect, he’ll lose his room and his job at Rear Entrance Video. But Austin’s got a not-so-straight secret of his own: nothing turns him on more than insults implying he’s gay—even though he’s definitely not!—and all his old coping methods have stopped working.
Pure desperation drives him to rent a Mischievous Pictures porn flick about straight men tricked into servicing Puck, a male dominant. Instead of letting off steam, though, it just leaves him craving more, more, more, and suddenly, Austin finds himself at Mischievous Pictures Studios for an audition. After all, you can be Gay For Pay and still be straight . . . right?
But meeting Liam Williams, the real person behind Puck, confuses Austin even more. Liam really seems to like him as a person, and Austin likes him back. And while Gay For Pay’s okay, what does it make Austin if he still wants Liam when the cameras aren’t rolling?
