I LOVE THIS FOR RYAN, AND HOW HE EVENTUALLY SAW SAM FOR WHO HE REALLY WAS! HERE IS MY REVIEW:
Blowing Off Steam by: Joy Lynn Fielding
review by: Becky
Two guys, a train, and lots of steam.
Sam Chancellor has been in love with the steam engine Old Bess since he was six years old. Well, maybe not literally, but even when he’s lost everything else in his life, he’s always had her. But now her place in his heart has been unexpectedly challenged. Her new driver, Ryan Saunders, is the embodiment of all Sam’s fantasies.
Ryan has written off Sam as just another geeky trainspotter—until the moment Ryan sees him without his usual shapeless hoodie, and realizes that for a nerd, Sam’s pretty built.
When Ryan overlooks Sam’s awkwardness long enough to suggest a hook-up, Sam seizes the opportunity—and Ryan—with both very eager hands. Finding common ground in their shared love of Bess, their time together is better than Sam ever dared dream.
But there’s a reason Ryan never talks about his past. And when Ryan's job is threatened, Sam’s well-meaning intervention puts both Ryan and Bess in deadly danger.
I love a book that teaches me about a subject that I am not very familiar with, while making it entertaining and part of a great story! This book does just that while not once making me feel like I am having a lesson, and I love that!
Sam has been watching the Steam Engine Old Bess for years, and now he gets to watch her hot new driver too! Sam is used to being seen as a nerd, and just that guy obsessed with Bess, but with Ryan he wants to be something more.
Ryan never paid much attention to Sam, that is until he saw him beneath the bulky hoodie he always wore! When Sam and Ryan get closer it is apparent Ryan is more that what he is saying, but that doesn't bother Sam a bit! The only thing Ryan has an issue with is Sam's choice of "house pet", but more about that later ;p!
When Ryan is threatened with losing his job, he and Sam must get used to the fact that Ryan won't be driving Old Bess for too much longer, or do they? This is a wonderful read, full of surprises and never boring!
Grab this book friends, you will be glad you did! Thanks Joy, for a book that became a very enjoyable lesson about trains, and about love as well!
the 5 house spider (Mabel) rating ;p
REMEMBER THE 'HOUSE' PET RYAN WASN'T TOO FOND OF? YEP YOU GUESSED IT, MABEL IS A SPIDER, LOL THAT WAS A GREAT PART OF THE BOOK! HERE ARE THE GOOD READS AND BUY LINKS:
TRUST ME FRIENDS, YOU GOTTA HAVE THIS BOOK!! HERE IS AN EXCERPT:
“You’re kind of built for a nerd, aren’t you?” Ryan said. “I guess trainspotting’s a more active hobby than I’d thought.”
Sam should have walked away because this guy was insufferable. Except there was humour gleaming in those eyes as well as something else. Something that if he wasn’t entirely losing his mind was actual, sexual interest.
In him, Sam Chancellor.
“It’s all that running alongside the engines to get the numbers down,” he blurted out before he could stop himself.
To his amazement, Ryan laughed. A true laugh that caused his eyes to crinkle at the corners. It made him even more gorgeous than he already was.
“Ryan Saunders,” he said. “I drive old Bessie.”
“Bessie?” Sam was horrified at the heresy. “She’s Bess. She’s always been Bess.”
“Given I’m the one whose hands have been over every inch of her, I guess she’s allowing me intimacies the general public doesn’t get,” Ryan said.
The low seductive voice and the thought of Ryan’s hands stroking over him the way they did over Bess meant Sam was getting hard. He clutched his satchel in front of him like some sort of shield, except that wasn’t helping at all because it was pressed against his dick and, God above, he was about to get a hard-on, here and now, right in front of Ryan Saunders.
“You haven’t told me your name,” Ryan said.
“Sam,” he choked out. “Sam Chancellor, and I have to go.”
He put his head down and fled.
