Jacob Stine hasn’t hid the fact he’s attracted to Race Carroway, and when Jacob takes
his van to Race’s shop for repair, Race takes Jacob in hand, showing Jacob that
the attraction is mutual. Great, right? But before Jacob can get his hands on
Race, Race runs away then ignores him; making Jacob think Race regretted their
one-sided, hot encounter.
Honestly, The Baker Gets His Man, seemed rushed more than it needed to be, regardless of the fact it is a short story. While reading, at least for me, I like to be drawn into the heat building between the characters. Jacob and Race’s first sexual encounter didn’t have that build up, rather a wham bam moment at the beginning. Along with the quickie start to the lovers, there were a few run-on sentences, and repeated words that
should have been caught in the editing.
There’s no denying that the sex scenes sizzle, and I liked the overall concept of the
story that Ms. Brochu brought to life on the page. Yes, I thought there may be a
few issues, but not enough to overlook the short story as a whole. If you are
looking for a quick read with some m/m heat, I would recommend this book.
