David has devoted his life
to the Catholic priesthood. He loves helping others particularly homeless
veterans. He is content with his life but he is also very lonely.There is something missing from his life, although
David would never admit it. Until one day Detective Conner McMahon walks into
the shelter where David works.
David immediately likes
Conner. He is a good looking former Marine who has a sense of humor and most of
all he is a kind and giving person. The two men strike up a friendship but it
quickly becomes evident that Conner is interested in much more. David can’t
deny he is attracted to the other man and that his feelings for Conner run deep
but is he ready to change his whole life to take a chance on love?
DAVID AND CONNER is the
third novel in Bobby Michaels’ JOCK DORM series. I enjoyed reading the first two
novels in the series JOCK DORM DAR AND GREG and JOCK DORM: DREW AND VINCE so I
was happy to review the third installment. What drew me to this novel initially
is that one of the main characters is a priest. I admired the author’s
willingness to tackle what is potentially a very controversial topic.
I also enjoyed the
theological discussions between David and his colleagues and also learning more
about the Episcopal Church. I liked both of the heroes very much. Conner is
sexy and very sweet and I admired David’s bravery and willingness to change his
life in major ways. David’s struggle with coming out and accepting his
sexuality was poignant and felt very realistic to me. DAVID and CONNER is a hot
and enjoyable read.
