A Good Bargain by DC Juris

Awkward and unsure, David has finally reentered the dating scene. A hot, young stud-muffin named Brandon seems like the perfect start, but things get complicated when Brandon makes a startling confession. Is Brandon the right choice for David, or did David just get way more than he bargained for?

A Good Bargain is a super, aww-inducing read that you can fit in to any spare few minutes you have. At eighteen pages long, it packs quite a bit of story in, and it’s humorous too—always a good thing for me. I can’t say an awful lot without giving things away, but know that I enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from DC Juris. This author has a talent for getting right into the heart of vulnerability in a character, and because David is an older man who has started dating again, he’s more vulnerable than ever. I loved that about him, the uncertainty, whether he was getting it all wrong. He’s the kind of guy you want to hug and tell him it will all be ok if he just gives himself a break.

"I don’t want to have sex. I mean…I do. There's nothing wrong with you or anything. I don't do this kind of thing. I don't bring boys home. Men," David corrected quickly. "I don't bring boys home at all, of course. I'm not into that sort of thing. Not that I think you are. Not that there's anything wrong with it. I mean…well of course there's something wrong with it if the boy's a kid, like, really a kid. Who wouldn't think that was wrong?" Well, this is going to hell in a hand basket.

Well worth the read, A Good Bargain is indeed a good bargain. At only 99c, you can’t go far wrong!
