Different Strokes by Nico Jaye

December 6, 2013


When his regular masseuse is called away on a family emergency, Tomas does not expect Darren, her temporary replacement, to be such an attractive distraction. Tomas has always been a serious, no-nonsense type of swimmer; after all, elite competition leaves no room for unprofessional conduct. However, he finds it extremely difficult to stay on the right side of the professional line with Darren tending to his needs.

My Review: 

Different Strokes how do I love thee…let me count the ways…Wait, is that too flowery? Too fluffy to be the beginning of a review? Deal with it. This was exactly what I needed at exactly the right time. I had this book pre-ordered already but I am a greedy selfish cow so when I saw it on NetGalley I jumped on this baby and was tickled when I was approved.

From the moment I met Tomas I was giddy. I loved being in his head and when this gorgeous man sees Darren I was a goner.

In a season of miracles and gifts, that man…he looked like an angel.

How can you go wrong with that? You can’t, you just can’t. I love the way the story is set up; we get our meet cute and then you are left waiting but not for long. I adored Darren, just adored him as he is preparing for her first massage session with the reputation that IS Tomas Lundquist. I was smiling through it all, a bit fat grin on my face as I read this story and hugged my Nook. It was wonderful and yes it was fluffy. So damn fluffy that I am still wrapped up in it and I don’t want out.

The push and pull with these boys was well done. I would have loved to witness a more hands on experience with the massage sessions, really would have loved to make sure Darren got that first request done well…really well. *ahem* My mind wanders far into the gutter with that but hey, Tomas said it so I totally blame him. Oh and Tomas, six words that came out of your mouth, so unexpected but so damn HOT! Dayum boy! You done good!

Different Strokes was a lovely read, a simply lovely read. I loved how the men got to know each other and how they both held onto their integrity throughout the attraction. Tomas and Darren were fantastic with learning the steps to the dance that will let them get what they want. Ooh the dance and kitchen counters and confessions…Le Sigh.

“I’m not sure if I’ll be good at this.”

“Just do what feels natural.”

If you like your boys full of sweetness with a side of sexy and hold the angst, then I suggest you add this to your list.
