Review: A Good Idea by K.M. Mahoney

Take two men who think the best years of their lives are behind them. Throw in one raging attraction, and stir liberally. Giving in to a mutual case of lust could be the best idea either one ever had.

Daniel Haversohn is stuck in a rut, and he knows it. The kids are grown and gone, he’s years past being ‘over the hill’, and the only excitement he gets these days comes from the occasional argument with a supplier. Owning a bar keeps him busy enough, but each night he has to go home to a cold and lonely house. Enter Joe Masterson.

Joe has known Daniel for longer than he cares to remember, but the military was his life. Now, after twenty-five years of active service, he’s a free man again. And he hates it. When Joe goes to his favourite bar to drown his sorrows, Daniel sees him moping and offers him a job. Tending bar is definitely a downward career move, but Joe is just bored enough to take it. The problem? Leaving the army behind must have knocked something loose in his libido, because he can’t stop staring at his boss’ arse. Now Joe has to decide if he can throw aside a lifetime of training for one moment of passion. And, just maybe, something deeper.

K.M. Mahoney delivered a welcome respite to the usual thirty-something crowd in A Good Idea as she told the tale of Daniel and Joe, seasoned in age and life. Daniel, a bar owner and longtime friend of Joe, retired military, met again by happenstance. The attraction apparent, yet Joe skittish under the ever-present guise of DADT. Luckily for Joe, Daniel was willing to forgo conventions and took the plunge into forging a relationship.

A Good Idea was short and sweet, and although I enjoyed the tale, a longer version would have made me happier. I wanted to know more about the budding relationship that had formed.

Ms. Mahoney did though pack a lot into the short tale as the story gave way to friendship- laughter and happiness- with a nicely written dose of sex.  There are times a story gets lost in the shuffle and overruled with sexual scenes, but A Good Idea delivered the perfect proportion.
