Bounced by his job and his lover, Brad decides to lick his wounds (and a few other things) in magical Seville. But the local site that most captivates him is swarthy student Marco De la Vega. When they lock eyes -- first in a empty sanctuary; then in a dark, smoky club -- they're ready for a holiday where every minute promises the kind of ecstasy they've only dreamed possible... Bad Boy Dreams -- that's what Erique's strict grandmother used to call his adolescent daydreams about naked older men. Like the one he can't stop having about his best friend's father, George Howard. Offering to give the strong, mature man a ride cross-country is driving Erique crazy with lust...but is it possible that the hot feelings are deeply, passionately mutual?

my favorite of course was the first story Out of Bounds. i loved how bendow built up the tension by giving little hints here and there about colt. how the one thing wade wanted from the begining was the same thing colt wanted some hot graphic sex. the ending was the worst part for me because i wanted it to be ellaborated but it left me in wonder and i love that. great job bendow. i would absolutely love it if you maybe write a follow up book for that short story including the ups and downs and more experimental sex scenarios.Was this review helpful?

Once again, Kensington Publishing gives us four novellas centered on one basic theme, in this instance the ideal man. Of course what is an ideal man for, if not to have tons and tons of sex with, and this book certainly does not slouch on that score. Each one of the four stories has its fair share of graphically described banging. Sometimes it fits integrally with the plot but more often than not, it is simply gratuitous. Mind you, I have no problem with gratuitous sex, especially when it is well written, but I do think it behooves a reviewer to point it out. This collection is defiantly not for the pornographically-challenged. OUT OF BOUNDS by Dave Benbow, in my opinion, is far and away the best of the four novellas. This is a beautifully told tale of an old desire finally fulfilled. Of all the stories, I think this is the one most easily related to. Wade was an over-weight teen geek with a massive crush on Colton Jennings, the star quarterback. It¿s twenty years later and Wade has blossomed into a very successful real-estate selling hunk, all set to show his former school chum Colt, the professional football player, a few houses to consider buying. But is a house the only thing the recently divorced grid-iron star is shopping for? The sex here is by far the most erotic because it plays a very real part in the love story. Also, the issues involved in coming out as a gay athlete are extremely well handled. In my opinion this wonderful novella sends a strongly needed message to gay men. Happy endings are possible, and we have every right to want and expect them. Bravo to Dave Benbow for having the courage, in the face of the kind of gay cynicism we see every day, to deliver this message. I would give this story 5 stars by itselfWas this review helpful?
