After a few different beers, the boys loosen up and are in confession mode.

Review for Brief Encounters Reviews

Note to Readers: This story is written in the present tense (though it doesn’t bother me, I know it does some).

Eli is a Texas boy through and through, playing Big City Cowboy in DC for an internship with the USDA. He’s only been away from home a month, but it’s quite a bit of a culture shock, evidenced by the opening scene.

Love this story! I was one of the beta readers for this, and I really enjoyed it. Eli and Bodie try to balance their instance attraction with their desire to remain gentleman, and the results are hot! I'm a big fan of UST, and there's plenty.
