When Logan entered prison he was an 18 years old boy, maybe even a bit too naive for his age. He was the classical example of a boy born in the wrong side of the town, his father long gone, his mother with not enough money to sustain the family, a younger brother ill and again, not enough money to pay the bills... Logan did probably what it seemed the only obvious solution, a robbery, and it went wrong.

8 years later he is out on parole and he wants to start a new life, but for an ex-con is not simple: he is living in a cheap and dirty motel that soon he will have no money to pay, he can't find a job since people don't want to hire an ex-con, he has no hope in tomorrow... and then he sees an angel. All right, it's maybe a cracked angel, but for Logan is beautiful. Shane is a methodist reverend sent in an hell of a place since he is gay. He runs a homeless shelter, and probably it wouldn't be a bad life if not that, for a gay reverend is not easy to find a lover. I don't know if Logan is more eager to find a place to stay than Shane to find a lover... anyway they seem to fill the mutual void in their life, and Shane helps Logan to find a job, nothing fancy but enough to pay the bill. But Logan's past is not reaty to let him go.

I find quite strange that is not Shane and Logan's relationship to arise the trouble in the story, but I'm true, I don't know enough of the Methodist church; all right, Shane was 'punished' and assigned to a job that is not exactly a dream, but all in all Shane seems to be not repentant, and people around them seem to have not problem with them having a relationship. Shane never once seems to be worried to give shelter to a gay man whom is obviously having a relationship with.

This is a novella, and it's most sex, from Logan in assolo when he is just out of prison, to when he is having monkey sex with Shane practically from moment one, and Shane is also quite naughty under the sheet (actually the worries of his bosses that he could pervert someone is not so without basis...). But even if the lion share is taken by sex, there is also a plot, a bit fast in the development, but, well, there is not so much space left once Shane and Logan has spent most of the time in bed! And if Shane and Logan weren't so nice as a characters, that could have been a problem, but instead, sincerely, I didn't mind to spend more time with them between the sheets than outside. So, yes, if you are searching for an hot romp with a naughty core (Shane being a reverend gives that spicy more I believe), this one is a nice choice.
