What is “normal”?

sexton-marie-normal-enoughWhen Brandon Kenner shows up at Kasey Ralston’s garage with a 1970 Chevelle SS 454, Kasey is smitten by both the man and his car. But Kasey is hiding an embarrassing secret: his love for old muscle cars goes beyond what most would consider normal. His unusual fetish has kept Kasey isolated—estranged from his family and even distant from his coworkers.

But when Brandon figures out the hot mechanic’s secret, he’s not repulsed. In fact, he finds Kasey intriguing, and he’s determined to have him for himself.

Everything about Brandon revs Kasey’s engine, and he’s more than willing to get down and dirty with the charming man. What worries Kasey is what will happen after. Is there any chance of a future for them? In the past, expecting anything long-term has only led to heartbreak. But Kasey can’t help hoping that, despite Kasey’s fetish, Brandon will be the exception.


M/M Pairing
Gay Characters


This story was mixed bag for me. On the one hand I really enjoyed Kasey. His anxiety and family problems were realistic and relatable. He was super shy and sweet, but also strong enough to take care of himself instead of being a pushover.

On the other hand Brandon was hot and I mostly enjoyed him as a character, but the emphasis on his past boyfriends and their fetishes was weird. This put me off a bit and made it seemed like he was collecting Kasey.

Even though I had some problems with Brandon I did like him with Kasey. I just wish this book was longer so I could really get a sense of them together.


Marie Sexton lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along. Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.
