Publisher's Summary

Lincoln
I've done a good job getting over my past. I'm not only proud of who I am, but revel in it. Still, I don't let myself get too close to people. With closeness comes questions and those pesky feelings, and I'm having none of that. I've got a great job, friends, I'm cute and twinky, and my bed's never empty. What more do I need? Except I can't stop sleeping with Rush Alexander. I try, I really do, but I just can't stay away, and that, ladies and gentlemen, is stressing me out. Rush has the power to hurt me-something I swore I'd never let happen again. Unfortunately, things become a little more complicated when I tell a white lie that lands me in a fake relationship with him. Yeah, not my best moment.
 

Rush
I've always been an easygoing guy and don't let many things get to me. I've worked hard to make my dream of becoming a professional motocross racer come true, and everything else is icing on the cake. Like Lincoln Gray, for example. I need to tread carefully, even though I want more from him than our occasional hookups. If I give what we have too much throttle, we'll crash and burn. But when Linc accidentally announces we're boyfriends in front of my mom, the race is on. First, I have to show him there's more between us than the way we burn up the sheets together. When Linc finally trusts me in ways he doesn't anyone else, there's no turning back. I'm a firm believer that nothing worth having comes easily, and Lincoln Gray is worth it all.

Whiskey Throttle is part of the Fever Falls series but can be listened to as a standalone.

Great story and narration

#mm #sexyaf #friendstolovers #noangst

Loved these 2 men. Book 1 is still my fav but this was really good.

I loved lincs sassy snark. He’s is the slightly stereotypical “twink” in the relationship and I love those characters. Whereas Rush is the sporty guy that is def confident but is very sweet and just a nice guy.

They are friends who have been hooking up. They are typically one and done kind of guys but there is something that keeps them coming back for more and secretly they both want more but won’t admit that. Lincoln then cuts it off wanting to maintain the friendship but it leaves both pining til Rush gets hurt and in a panic Lincoln tells the dr he’s his partner and surprise Rush’s family hears. The lies kinda snowball so it’s too late to go back and they are thrown into this fake but not fake relationship.

These 2 men are very well suited and I enjoyed this story very much. I would like to address some other reviews I read just so that anyone reading this gets both views. I read some couldn’t stand how Lincoln was a “praise slut” and Rush talked to him “in a demeaning manner like a dog”. I have a problem with this perspective. Yes Lincoln loved paise like good boy but I don’t believe in kink shaming. These 2 def had certain needs that they needed the other to fill but I didn’t see any prob with it. Despite them being equal age and not using the daddy title or not using sub/dom or bdsm I did feel that this need in them had minor traits of a daddy/boy relationship. I totally got where they were coming from and thought that they were great together.

I also loved the characters from the previous books playing the roles of the extra characters and hearing more about them though this book can definitely be read on its own.

My only complaint would be (possible spoiler ahead) Rush made such a show of saying he was out and proud but he spends the better part of the book dodging relationship questions stating he wants to focus on his work and I sorta got where he was coming from but when I could see that Lincoln was wondering if there was more to it I felt bad for him. So this is what made it only a 4 star for me :(

Michael is great as always. He def used a more higher lighter tone for Linc so u could hear the difference. The only voices that tended to blend were the extra characters which I found was no big deal and he was able to do the mom voice really well.

Returning to Fever Falls

I fell in love with Linc in the first book of the Fever Falls series. Back then he was Beau’s best friend, a flirt, and a twink. He still is all those things in this book but he’s also much more. I was curious about his backstory and as it was revealed my heart hurt more and more. His childhood was horrible and his determination to put it behind him admirable. Still, there were moments I could relate to. If you’re unlucky, as a child, you often wondered why you’re not good enough. Loveable enough. Worthy of affection and attention. Linc went through all that, faced some really tough times, and came out the better man. He’s dedicated his life to helping others and, as a nurse, does a pretty good job. He is loved by coworkers and patients alike and there’s little doubt why. But under the happy exterior is a little boy wanting to be loved.

One patient features prominently in the book and that storyline gave me lots of feel good moments along with a few dark ones as well.

Rush is a motocross racer. Professional one at that and pretty damn good. He’s also not out. He’s not in the closet either. He just lives his life hoping others won’t look too closely. There are gay athletes in professional sports, to be sure, but most of them stay in the closet to protect their careers. The ones who come out when they go into retirement are admirable, to be sure, but it’s more proof how many men (and women) are in the closet. How Rush deals with the problem is pivotal in the book.

As for the pretend boyfriend trope, it worked – especially because the men were together before. They have hurdles to overcome, for sure. Linc has a tough time trusting and Rush isn’t truly out. Throw in a concerned mother, a meddling best friend, and a group of men who want the couple to be happy and it makes for a great book.

Michael Pauley is narrating this series and I’m so glad. He’s consistent with his voices for each character in each book and listening to him is a true pleasure. I can’t wait for the subsequent books that are hopefully coming soon.

Fever Falls part 3

I enjoyed this book much more than the 2nd. I loved the first book and this one made me remember why I love Riley Hart. This was a great story about Rush and Lincoln, 2 friends that occasionally hooked up, but Lincoln was commitment shy. When Lincoln suddenly outs them as being in a relationship, it's too late to take back what he said. Linc and Rush fake a relationship and because they already have so much sexual chemistry, it's inevitable that things develop again with them for real this time. I felt that this was an easy to listen romance, not too much angst. Give it a listen--you'll enjoy it.
