Book Blurb

It's Christmas, and Jamie has just finished shopping only to find his car has a dead battery. He calls up ADAC, the German roadside assistance service, and Stefan arrives to jump his battery. The battery isn't the only thing getting charged up as Jamie finds himself increasingly aroused by the Italian mechanic. When Jamie's car is finally started, will that be the last he sees of Stefan, or will this be the start of something new?


Book Review

Even though this story seems to be about the jumpstarting of Jamie's car, the second meaning of a jumpstart to his somewhat lacking love life is clearly included. And what a jumpstart it is! The very hot, very Italian guy from the roadside assistance company sure knows how to deal with cars and men.

Jamie lives in Germany, only wants to visit the Christmas market, but when he returns his car is dead. He knows whom to call though, and a very hot Italian man soon comes to his rescue. The car is dealt with pretty quickly, and Jamie can’t help but want more. He may be a little shy at first, not sure whether it is safe to show his attraction to the stranger, but he can’t stop from staring. Stefan seems agreeable to a little quick action, and the result is some very hot activity in a parking garage.

If you like quick, hot stories, if you enjoy strangers deciding they want more straight after their first encounter, and if you're a fan of making out in public places, you will probably like this short story.
