Erryn reviews ‘Taxes and Tardis’ by N.R. Walker. Self-published on February 21, 2018, 120 pgs. The audio was released December 11, 2020, was narrated by Nick J. Russo and is 3hrs and 8mins.
Why I read this book: I do adore N.R. Walker books.
Brent is a jock; Logan a geek. These men are a world apart. But if opposites attract, maybe it’s the differences between them that make it worth the fight.
Brent Kelly is a laid-back electrician whose only concerns are drinks with friends and which man to bed next. In need of a new accountant to sort out his nightmarish shoebox of tax receipts, he’s referred to Logan Willis.
He doesn’t expect to be intrigued by the science-fiction-loving, geeky guy with dark-rimmed glasses and a blue TARDIS shirt. So his fascination with the soft-spoken Englishman surprises him, and their mutual attraction is completely unexpected. He most certainly never expects to fall in love.
One a jock and the other a geek, both men know the differences between them are vast and could cause problems. But in this opposites-attract erotic drama, maybe it’s the differences between them that make staying together worth the fight.
Time And Relative Dimension In Space
Okay, so I’ve never been a huge Dr. Who fan. But I did see a number of episodes with David Tenant (apparently the 10th doctor) and I’ve seen a good portion of Torchwood (hello Captain Jack!), so I had some concept of the Doctor. And, of course, there’s a rabid fan base because you don’t go through that many incarnations without the love of loyal supporters.
But I digress. Brent is a jock. He was in high school, and has gone into the trades as an electrician who works with his hands and his body all day. Taxes? Paperwork? Not his thing. Logan is a very young CPA who works with numbers all day in an office and wears a Tardis-Blue shirt. This is verry much an opposites attract story. But attract they do. One man has had unflinching and unwavering support from his family while the other faced horrible consequences for being gay, and has his ‘found’ family in a group of tight friends.
How do they bridge the divide? Well, Brent heads to the store and picks up some copies of the television series. He makes the first move. And although Logan is hesitant, he realizes Brent is making the effort, so he tries right back. So the Jock and the Geek find common ground. And discover they are definitely sexually compatible. But it’s not all hearts and flowers because each man has insecurities. The book has a dark moment, but it’s not too dark. The book has a happy ending, which is what I expect from an N.R. Walker romance.
Then there are the men themselves. One has a sexy British accent while the other is good ole’ Texan. Nick J. Russo does a great job narrating the book and I enjoyed his performance. So, yeah, definitely worth the listen. A nice short one-sitting listen that you’ll be glad you spent the time on.
N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.
She is many things; a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who she gives them life with words.
She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things…but likes it even more when they fall in love. She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.
She’s been writing ever since…
