Eli "King Cobra" London hasn't been able to stop
fantasizing about all the possibilities his Hot Rod family
have ahead of them after visiting his cousin Joe. Joe's
construction crew is a very close family of sorts. So close
in fact they share everything including a polyamorous
relationship. Joe's crew seems to have it all. Eli would
love to try and have that kind of relationship with the six
guys and one woman that make up the Hot Rods but he fears
it ruining what they have together. Unfortunately for Eli,
he didn't visit Joe on his own. Eli's best friend Alanso
was there for a hand on demonstration what the Hot Rods
could share. Eli can't forget what it felt like to share
the erotic pleasure with Al. But now Al is pressuring him
to bring that experience into their daily lives. What if
they can't handle it? What if their makeshift family is
torn apart by trying to "have it all"?
Alanso "Al" Diaz is tired of pretending. Al had is eyes
opened when he and Eli visited Joe. Having Eli's hand on
him finally made him feel "right". Ever since they returned
Eli has held back explaining that the Hot Rods would be
ripped apart if they explored relationships like the crew
has. Al can't take it any longer his love for Eli is so
much more than friendship. Al is done pretending he only
likes women; he wants to be with Eli in every way. Al
decides if Eli is too stubborn to admit his feelings to the
Hot Rods then Al is going to look elsewhere to become the
man he is meant to be.
KING COBRA is a spectacularly sensuous story. Author Jayne
Rylon has created this first book in her Hot Rod
a spin-off of her successful Power Tools series. Rylon
introduces Eli and Al to readers in Hammer It Home, Book 6
of Power Tools. When KING COBRA begins readers get to see
Eli and Al's perspective of that "hands on" demonstration
of the Power Tools "loving".
That is just what it is, loving. The bonds between the
crew are based in the love the men had for one another
before they met the women in their lives. As they paired
off with their wives they realized they still wanted to
share with their male lovers. It took/takes hard work and
communication but now they have a polyamorous relationship
that will stand the tests of time. Eli and Al both want to
bring that type of relationship to the Hot Rods. They
desire each other and both want to be with others within
the Hot Rods. Eli has been the leader of these misfit
grease monkeys for years. They seem to have faced all life
has to offer together but this; well could this be too
KING COBRA is filled with erotic sex scenes that will have
your pulse quickening and leave you breathless. This story
can be read as a standalone from the Power Tools series but
to have a true understanding of the polyamorous
relationship I highly recommend reading the Power Tool
series first, in order. The love Eli and Al have is soul
deep and they captured my heart. This book is so much more
than a gay or bisexual romance, the love the characters
share is the heart and soul of this novel. I wait with
bated breath to share in that love of the Hot Rods in
2, Mustang Sally.
After Eliâ€™s mother died, his father honored her lifeâ€™s
mission as a social worker by taking in several kids from
the wrong side of the tracks. Not all of them stuck, but
those who did became Eliâ€™s quasi family.
Their bonds, forged in fires set by their personal demons,
are unbreakableâ€”or so Eli wants to believe. Especially since
he and Alanso, his best friend and head mechanic, witnessed
the overpowering allure of polyamory while visiting the
Much as Eli would like to deepen the relationships among his
foster brothers and sister in the Hot Rods Restoration Team,
heâ€™s hesitant to risk everything on a quick romp behind a
stack of tires.
But when Eli catches Alanso exploring their mutual fantasy
at a known hookup spot in a public park, all bets are off.
And Eli must decide if itâ€™s time to jump in full
throttleâ€”and trust his instincts to guide him through the
night. If the pair can dodge the potholes in their own
relationship, maybe they can race together toward the
unconventional arrangement with Mustang Sally they both desire.
Warning: Fasten your seatbelts, this is going to be a wild
(and naughty) ride!
