GAINING MOMENTUM

Gavin Hayes is everything Derrick could ask for in a lover. Gorgeous. Passionate. Great in bed. Derrick finds it very easy to just let himself go, to let Gavin guide him and teach him all the things he missed during a decade of celibacy. In the course of a single weekend, Derrick�s routine is transformed, his mornings and evenings filled with sex. Sweet, seductive, wild, or raunchy, Gavin offers Derrick all the pleasure he�s denied himself for so long.

But learning how to be a lover in bed is one thing. Learning to be one out of bed is another. For Derrick, being alone has become habit. Sharing his confidences doesn�t come nearly as readily as sharing his bed. After so many losses, the last thing Derrick wants is to become dependent upon another person who might not always be there.

And Gavin always being there is far from certain. With an ex-lover lurking in the background, and the question of Gavin�s future health still outstanding, neither Gavin nor Derrick feel capable of asking for anything more than right now. But Gavin won�t be kept on the fringes of Derrick�s life. Can Derrick let someone in before the opportunity passes him by?

Mrs. Condit and Friends Read Books - Becky Condit
5 stars "Amelia Gormley's ACCELERATION is going to be listed among my favorite books. This is a love story, not a romance, not simply an erotic tale, but a story of the power of love...I highly recommend this book."
Hearts on Fire Reviews - Aggie for
5 Hearts "Again, as in Inertia, there isn't one thing I didn't like about Ms. Gormley's writing style or ability to tell a story. I simply loved this book."

Meet the Author

Amelia C. Gormley may seem like anyone else. But the truth is she sings in the shower, dances doing laundry, and writes blisteringly hot m/m erotic romance while her five year old is napping. When she�s not writing in her Pacific Northwest home, Amelia single-handedly juggles her husband, her son, their home, and the obstacles of life by turning into a everyday superhero. And that, she supposes, is just like anyone else. Her first two novels from the Impulse trilogy, Inertia and Acceleration, are available in ebook and paperback now.

A beautiful story of growth, acceptance and new beginnings. In this installment we find ourselves right where we left off in Inertia. Derrick and Gavin continue to unleash their lust and desires and decide to take their sexual relationship to the next level. If you read the previous book, you know that although Derrick and Gavin have been intimate, they have not had intercourse and that it would be an enormous step for them to take. I applaud the author, Amelia C. Gormley, for the way she went about this. It was a big step for them and she addressed the importance of that moment while still keeping the passion level on HIGH. The scene that she created was brilliant. There was expectation, surrender, desperation, vulnerability and ultimately trust. She brought forward Derrick's need with his every moan, both their lust in every kiss, nip and suck and Gavin's hesitation and concerns in a way that was very real to me. It was everything I expected and then some. Every detail she provided shed some new light on Derrick's desire to let go and give himself to Gavin and only reinforced my belief that these two are perfect together. I was enjoying it so much that I was grinning like a fool and in the end I was as exhausted as them from tapping the hell out of my tablet. Of course this book is so much more than the sex. That's just the cherry on top of all the goodness. It's about Derrick learning to let go of his past and letting Gavin be his future. It's about accepting that some things in life are uncertain and that you need to live each day to its fullest and enjoy each and every moment you have with those you care about. It's about Gavin's need to find a partner that will be there for him, to share the good and the bad and accept him for who he is - strong and confident with a touch of insecurity, demanding and controlling in bed while surrendering his all to his lover. It's about the fear of new-found love, acceptance but most of all it's about trust. And that is what these characters found. Through each event in the book their trust for one another grew. I liked how the author added some obstacles along the way that pushed them to fight for one another. That just made their new relationship more believable to me. Each character developed throughout the story and I was so proud to see where they were headed and now I am more eager than ever to know how they will end up. I am emotionally invested in these characters. How could I not when I get to see how overwhelmed Derrick is by all these emotions he's feeling. He is discovering every part of himself. He is learning to be a lover and a partner, while still learning and trying to understand his needs and desires. And Gavin, so confident and strong, but with a tenderness that melts me. I admire his determination to want his needs in a partner met. He doesn't want to go back to where he found himself before even if it means that he has to let go of Derrick. The writing once again was excellent. The way the author went about telling this story was amazing. Each event and every emotion expressed came alive and added to the enjoyment of the story. The characters, their dialog and their feelings were beautifully combined and brought forward in a way that touched my heart and added to my connection with these adorable characters.
