The men in this anthology are chubs, cubs, grizzlies, pandas, polar bears, and more—all looking for a connection. And beneath their burly physiques are hearts of gold.

In Which “Sasquatch” Finds A Mate

“I don’t know the question, but sex is definitely the answer.” ― Woody Allen



Sasquatch starts out with Jack celebrating his TGIF at the local Oyster Bar. This is not a bar where most gay men would find themselves out for drinks. Jack was just redneck enough where he didn’t care. Jack just wanted to have a beer to beat the heat and get some dinner since it was so hot. While Jack is finishing up his first beer the roar of a Harley pulling into the lot catches his attention. Turns out Dave, aka Sasquatch, a six foot six muscled biker has arrived. Jack knows Dave from high school and he is his closest neighbor. Dave was very intimidating at first sight, but he is actually very quiet and rarely speaks unless spoken to. That changes when Lonnie Cahill arrives at the oyster bar and outs Jack in spectacular fashion. After some rather nasty comments Dave “kindly” escorts Lonnie out and has a drink with Jack before rejoining his buddies. It seems Jack found support from unlikely places.

The next day Jack has a date coming over, Luiz is a hot latino Jack has been seeing. Mostly for hot sex, but Jack is trying to find out if there could be more. After dinner the two men are making out heavily on the couch when Dave shows up saying Mandy, his live-in girlfriend, has kicked him out. There is no way Jack can turn Dave away after he helped him the day before, besides they are friends, you help friends out. Jack and Luiz head to bed and Dave heads to the spare room. After Dave catches an eyeful, and Luiz catches a mouthful of Dave, the three men end up spending the night exploring the limits of their bodies. Luiz then wakes up mad about a threesome he started and Jack has had enough and tells him not to come back.

Expecting Dave to have regrets the next morning, Jack is pleasantly surprised to find out Dave just might have found the very thing he wasn’t even aware he was looking for. The two men end up finding a way, and it just works for them. They find that the people that matter don’t mind and the ones that mind truly don’t matter. Jack and Dave are happy and that is all that matters to them.

Now Max Vos does write with the hearts and flowers, but his stories are also very, very smexy. They are not for the faint of heart. However, if you like the down and dirty with large, muscular hairy men that are into some hot and heavy kink, this is definitely the story for you. Even with the kink, Max gives us the feels and the HEA. I would say the only way this story could have better would be if it was longer. This is definitely a book to keep on the “kink” shelf and I loved every second of it.
