M/M erotica obviously written by a man: romantic, but quite graphic

- Intriguing characters. Sloane is mysterious and sexy, and even though another reviewer found Dan a little too soft, I found him believable and endearing. True, he sits around much of the time while Sloane is off treasure-hunting, but what else could you expect a city boy reporter to do in the jungle? He’s actually quite brave when it comes

Dan is a photoreporter sent in Peru to make an article on Machu Pichu. But he accidentaly (or maybe no so accidentaly) meets Sloane, an adventurer in search of an airplane crushed which holds the key to clean the good name of his family. The fact that the two men are openly gay and willingly to let the heat between them to flare adds romance to an adventurer old type novel (and old type has not a negative meaning in this case, but a really positive one)

Dan is a beautiful character, so helpless

I have to say this was a good read. I think I might have added a star if not for the print formatting. Missing periods, lacking indentations, returns where there shouldn't be, brought me out of the story.

That said the story was solid and sweet. The characters interesting and engaging. There were a few info dumps and a subplot with a secondary character that really didn't go anywhere, but the main story was very good. The men and their love affair believable, the setting stunning and a great atmo

I've been in the business of writing books for a very long time, and I derive particular enjoyment from visiting different places and then trying to relay the "essence" of those places to my readers. Likewise, I'm very adventuresome regarding trying new things, whether it be exotic and strange foods and/or other more personal "things".
