A criminal, a pilot, and an aspiring chef dance in a stripper bar at the center of the universe...
Six months on a military ship with my two friends, cooking food for the crew in nothing but skimpy shorts, what could possibly go wrong? Let’s see, our friendship starts to turn sexual. We agree to cook naked for extra money. One friend turns out to be a thief, the other is facing his shyness to admit he loves me, and atop all that, we’re thrust into the middle of a war. I was a dreamer trying to conquer my wish of being a chef, not some space fighter. How were we going to survive in combat conditions?
My best advice: Watch out for boiling water while cooking naked on a spaceship. Oh, and once in a while, play the hero.
Dick, It's What's for Dinner Reviews
From the first page where we learn Vern is wearing a chef’s hat over his, um, privates and he’s about to be shot into space, to the last page, I was enthralled. Dick, It’s What’s For Dinner is a perfect balance of sexy and story with some sci fi action thrown in. Read this book!FULL REVIEW: http://thetbrpile.weebly.com/reviews/...
Totally worth the wait!
I can't believe I waited this long to start this series. I do that all the time though, sadly. But...better late than never! What's better than reading about two hot guys stripping and dancing? How bout THREE hot guys stripping and dancing? Oh yeah, that was a perk. Throw in a little action in the form of explosions, foiled plots, and a hero whose a little uncoordinated and you have one of the best books this year. Vern is hilarious with the rocket boots, hand to gawd, I snorted. And then choked on my own spit. It wasn't pretty but luckily there were no witnesses. Rei is the sweetest thing in space with all his blushing and bashfulness. And Ale was freaking phenomenal as a character. Funny, flirty, and hot. The story flows seamlessly and I was sucked in from the first line. Good laughs, steamy scenes, and explosions! What else could anyone ask for? Now on to the next!
James Cox’s sexy sci-fi romance had me on page one. Rei, Vern, and Ale are the epitome of sexy heroes and there’s plenty of story to back up the steam. The world building is top-notch and Cox has a talent for weaving humor through his story. Fans of gay romance have a treat in store.
James Cox does outer space so well!!! He always comes up with new and different scenarios! Just look at the title!!! That alone made me buy this book! The characters in his books are written with strong male characters that I like. Love how he writes ménage
Breann and I had Dick for Dinner and it was delicious.
So, when James Cox invited members of the clubhouse over to his pad to have dinner, more specifically, Dick for Dinner, Breann and I tripped over each other heading out the clubhouse door.
James always provides a fun sci-fi adventure and this one is no exception. Once you get past your appreciation of the title of course :D.
The world building was detailed without being overcomplicated making it easy to dive right into the story and understand where the characters are coming from. The story is written from Vern’s perspective and his character was extremely likable, charming and deliciously horny. He’s an aspiring chef who’s working as a stripper/waiter to earn enough to finish his training. He works closely with Ale and Rei. Ale is a big ol’ hunk of a man that Vern has a crush on and he’s a bit of a mystery. Rei is a pilot in training who’s working his way through training just like Vern. The three have great chemistry on the surface and once the story really gets going the physical attraction moves into something much sweeter and deeper. James threw in just enough feels to take the story from pure sci-fi campy fun to something more.
James writes a damn fine menage relationship. His characters are all very unique so you don’t get them muddled during sexy times and he doesn’t discount the feelings that each has for one another. They are different, but no less important. Vern feels differently for Ale than he does for Rei, doesn’t make it any less significant, but it’s unique and I think that’s why they work for me.
The adventure was great fun and his hero’s always have the charm and “accidental luck” that make them great to read. They aren’t perfect and no victory comes easy, that’s what makes them all the more heroic in my book. They are regular horny guys in an extraordinary situation.
The ending was delicious as I was expecting from the title and I liked reading how the guys had evolved and come together after all the shenanigans were played out.
A couple of fave sentences, because I always highlight the hell out of James’s sentences:
“Ale was a sight that made cocks harden and weep.”
“His long legs ate up the space much like I wanted to eat his dick.”
“His cheeks were the shade of a hard-spanked ass.”
