A sexy new romance from the author of Trust the Focus.
Colin Hartman can now add college to his list of failures. On the coast-to-coast trek home from California, Colin stops at a gas station in the Nevada desert, and can’t help noticing the guy in tight jeans looking like he just stepped off a catwalk. When he realizes Catwalk is stranded, Colin offers a ride.
Riley only intended to take a short ride in Colin's Jeep to the Grand Canyon. But one detour leads to another until they finally find themselves tumbling into bed together. However there are shadows in Riley's eyes that hide a troubled past. And when those shadows threaten to bury the man whom Colin has fallen in love with, he vows to get Riley the help he needs. For once in his life, quitting isn't an option…
Erickson's second road-trip romance (after Trust the Focus) is a tender treat. Colin Hartman, on his way home to North Carolina after a failed attempt at higher education in California, picks up hitchhiker Riley Sorenson, a former Armani underwear model now down in the dumps. Faulty gaydar leads the men to admire each other only in sidelong glances as they begin their journey. Of course, it isn't long before they openly confess desire. As their passion flares, Colin can't help but fall helplessly in love with the man he affectionately calls Catwalk. Erickson imbues handsome Riley with near-debilitating emotional issues, which refreshingly having nothing to do with being gay. Credible characterizations and a sensitive ear for the ways men talk about love and sex make this a delectable summer read.
