Chaser by Rick R. Reed
Caden DeSarro is what they call a chubby chaser. He likes his guys with a few extra pounds on them. So when he meets Kevin Dodge in a bar bathroom, he can’t help but stare, even if he does make an ass of himself. As far as Caden is concerned, Kevin is physically perfect: a stocky bearded blond with a dick that’s just right. (They met in the bathroom—of course he looked!) But Caden gets tongue-tied and misses his chance.
When Caden runs into Kevin one night on the El train, he figures it’s fate offering him a second shot. Caden manages to get invited back to Kevin's place for a one-night stand that turns into the kind of relationship he’s dreamed about.
But the course of true love never did run smooth, and Kevin and Caden’s romance is no exception. When Caden returns from a few weeks away on business, Kevin surprises him with a new and “improved” body—one that fits Caden’s shallow friend Bobby’s ideal, not Caden’s. Caden doesn’t know what to do, and his hesitation is just the opportunity Bobby was looking for. This isn’t the same Kevin he fell in love with… is it?
This story is a lot harder to rate, I mean I loved it but their were parts I wanted to hate you know? And I really think those parts were just because they may have hit home, we always try to say that it's the inside that counts right? But I think deep down we're all a little vain when it comes to the outside, I'll admit freely that I can be that way too. But the way this story is told captured my attention, Kevin goes from being a little chubby to nicely built and he may have started to want a better body because of Caden but he realizes he is really doing it for himself. Of course he doesn't know that Caden likes him because he's a little plump. I really didn't like the use of the word chubby chaser but I think it was used mainly to get the point across. And I will say when Caden comes back I didn't like the way he treats Kevin at all I would have told him right off the bat to take a flying leap. He's a jerk plain & simple and Kevin deserved better it wasn't until Bobby gets involved that he realizes what he's about to lose. And don't get me started on Bobby he's an asshole all the way around, I truly didn't like his character. This is one of those stories that make you stop and think, it's not a bad thing either I liked it and will definitely be reading more from Rick R Reed. I Recommend
