Book Blurb

When Jason Smith wins a contest he doesn’t remember entering, he earns a visit with The MeatGrinder, aka Trent Peterson. Trent expected a rabid fan; instead, he gets Jason, who knows nothing about wrestling, doesn’t care about the prizes, and would prefer to skip the official wrestling demo, please. Trent should be annoyed, but by the end of the day, Trent knows he wants more than one day with Jason. Now he just has to convince Jason that Trent is more than his alter ego.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2013 Daily Dose package "Make a Play".

Book Review

Just imagine winning the grand prize in an online contest. Wouldn’t you be ecstatic? However, since you enter gazillions of contests, which one did you win? The kind of grown-up winner in this book recognizes he doesn’t really qualify as a “fan” that the contest was targeted, but he is going to wing it. That is good, since he ends up with a much bigger prize than he could have possibly imagined initially. At the core this story is a really feel-good one. There are bumps, bruises, and embarrassments along the way, but I enjoyed the ride along with the winner.

Jason Smith has grown up and left his acne, braces, and shyness all behind him. He is sort of a swinger these days. Now he has won a contest that obligates him to spend an entire day hanging out with some jock named “MeatGrinder”. That actually sounded kind of lame to Jason. However, Jason makes a connection in regard to this “MeatGrinder” and a secret heartthrob from his days in college. Jason certainly earns his stripes and then some by the end of that grueling but tantalizing day.

Trent Peterson, aka the “MeatGrinder”, is a very dedicated, hard working professional wrestler. He cottons onto Jason’s shaky ‘wrestling knowledge’ and extremely atypical fan behavior rather quickly. However, Trent is totally focused on taking Jason through every detail of every activity that was dutifully spelled out to him knowing that a true die-hard “MeatHead” would have been panting at his side all day knowing what was to come next. Trent, however, knows Jason is not really a die-hard “MeatHead” but he is rather comely…hot even. Trent turns out to be a masterful game player leading him and Jason down a very hot and rewarding path for both of them.

Trent, “The MeatGrinder”, is just such a cutie for a professional jock. I was very impressed with how Trent manages to go through all the steps stipulated by the promotion while masterfully wooing Jason. He knows some very alluring personal as well as professional ‘clinches’ and he and Jason eventually skyrocket up the ladder of intimacy. It takes a bit of time until they get there, but hopefully you will still find the bumps and grinds during their day together as fun and amusing as I did.
