Why I read this book: I was up for something quick.
A merry metropolis Christmas wedding.
Pack your jockstraps and snow coats, metropolis boys! This December, your presence is requested for the most fabulous wedding of Mr. Derek Crawford and Mr. Jackson Gibbs. The event will be held at the Silver Fox Ski Lodge in Whistle Ridge, British Columbia.
Daily activities will include skiing, ice skating, hot chocolate by an open fire, and, of course, a respectable amount of one-on-one time with your own partners to allow you guys to find other ways to generate some heat.
Expect cocktails, fun, and laughs with friends…as well as a few delightful surprises as we walk down the aisle, on the way to our very own happily ever after.
Bottom Boy and his Daddy
PS: No RSVPs necessary. We know our crew will be there. Love you guys!
Hitching It follows the characters you know and love from the Metropolis series. Before listening to Hitching It, it’s best to listen to the other books in the series, starting with Faking It.
I love Riley Hart and Devon McCormack as writers both separately and as a dynamic partnership. I’ll admit I own all the Metropolis audiobooks but haven’t yet listened to them. After listening to Hitching It, I’ll put them higher on my to listen to list.
This is a cute novella and would be better listened to after hearing the others. That being said, I was able to get a lot out of the story despite my not being up to date with the other stories. I was drawn in to Derek’s fretting over wedding plans and Jackson’s musings about his life before Derek and how far he’s come. I enjoyed the adventures of the men and their friends and family. There’s something special about a wedding, to be sure. Also, a quick Canadian thanks for setting the book in beautiful British Columbia. Oh, and thanks for slotting in the Fever Falls reference. How are Carter and Sawyer doing these days?
For a quick listen and to catch up with old friends, this is the perfect book. Now, I just have to listen to all the other Metropolis books…
Finally, a quick shout out to Michael Dean (formerly Michael Pauley). His narrations are always amazing and I can’t believe how many books he puts out. They’re always high quality and I appreciate him helming this book as well.

Riley Hart is the girl who wears her heart on her sleeve. She’s a hopeless romantic. A lover of sexy stories, passionate men, and writing about all the trouble they can get into together. If she’s not writing, you’ll probably find her reading.
Riley lives in North Carolina with her awesome family, who she is thankful for everyday.
Devon McCormack spends most of his time hiding in his lair, adventuring in paranormal worlds with his island of misfit characters. A good ole Southern boy, McCormack grew up in the Georgian suburbs with his two younger brothers and an older sister. At a very young age, he spun tales the old fashioned way, lying to anyone and everyone he encountered. He claimed he was an orphan. He claimed to be a king from another planet. He claimed to have supernatural powers. He has since harnessed this penchant for tall tales by crafting whole worlds where he can live out whatever fantasy he chooses.
A gay man himself, McCormack focuses on gay male characters, adding to the immense body of literature that chooses to represent and advocate gay men’s presence in media. His body of work ranges from erotica to young adult, so readers should check the synopses of his books before purchasing so that they know what they’re getting into.
