Thrill by Kristian Parker

Thrill. Kristian Parker.

Tyler Jones is celebrating hitting his mid-thirties with a new job and it’s unlike anywhere he’s ever worked before. Pleasure Seekers is a sex toy retail company based in the seaside resort of Brighton.

On his first day, Tyler finds himself in a very sticky situation with the drop-dead gorgeous Danny Healy. This man is next-level handsome. When Danny offers to help Tyler become personally acquainted with some of the items the company sells online, the heat truly blasts off.

But Tyler has never been one for meaningless sex. When he gets to know Danny, he finds so much more than he ever expected. What could happen if the lines of their arrangement were blurred a little?

Trigger Warning – discussion of historical emotional struggles and attempted suicide.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

I am such a fan of Kristian Parker's novels that I didn't even need to read the blurb to know I wanted to dive into this first book in a new series. There is such a wonderful feeling of family, place, and details of everyday life which work so well in all this author's works. Thankfully all my expectations were met and more!

Tyler is starting a new job in a new town and has found himself in the worst flatshare ever – already making us both laugh and cringe! Thankfully that nightmare is short-lived, but still does a fabulous job of giving us insight into him and his feelings of discombobulation as he starts afresh.

He makes a very valid point that procurement is the same wherever you work, but it is great fun listening in to the antics that the workers at Pleasure Seekers get up to – especially with new arrivers. One good thing is that he doesn't feel any need to hide his sexuality. Meeting Danny from the warehouse at a lube scent testing is an interesting start to his first day, and the feelings that assail him are both exciting and dangerous. Luckily, Danny is feeling exactly the same way.

As we get to know these two guys better, and from their families understand more why they are as they are, it is impossible not to want the very best for them – and that is a feature of this talented author, a real skill in giving us little details which bring the pages to life. And it is true of side characters too, such as Bruce, Amanda, and many others.

I will let you enjoy the body of the story without saying more, but believe me when I say that this promises to be another fun and fabulous series!



Author Bio

I have written for as long as I could write. In fact, before, when I would dictate to my auntie. I love to read, and I love to create worlds and characters.

I live in the English countryside. When I’m not writing, I like to get out there and think through the next scenario I’m going to throw my characters into.

Inspiration can be found anywhere, on a train, in a restaurant or in an office. I am always in search of the next character to find love in one of my stories. In a world of apps and online dating, it is important to remember love can be found when you least expect it.
