A year of messaging on the Cuffd app has led me to understand one thing: Troy is the one meaningful relationship I’ve ever had. Two things are stopping it from being more, I’m an adult film star and there’s also an ocean between us. To claim my geek boy, I’m going to have to pull out all the stops and lay my heart on the line as I’ve never done before.
Apollo, my online friend gives me the confidence to take a trip to a place I dream of. Myths and legends are worth a little fear of flying, right? With the incentive of finding a Daddy who’s as caring as Apollo, what do I have to lose?
Greeking Out is a long-distance-friends-to-lovers story with a geeky boy who hasn’t been little in too long, a confident, caring Daddy who wants to give his boy the holiday of a lifetime, and a well-loved teddy bear. It’s part of the Destination Daddies multi-author series. Each book can be read as a standalone, but there are so many destinations and Daddies to discover, why not grab them all?
GeekBoy: What if I’ve forgotten something?
HungLikeAGreekGod: I’m sure you haven’t, but if it helps, you can tell me everything you’ve got packed.
HungLikeAGreekGod: Of course. I wouldn’t have offered if I hadn’t meant it.
HungLikeAGreekGod: Everything, geek boy. Before you do, take a deep breath and a moment to calm down.
The urge to reply with “yes, Daddy” was overwhelming. Apollo wasn’t my Daddy and never would be, but it made me smile whenever he acted that way. Taking care of other people was probably as natural for him as breathing. Speaking of which… I took a couple of deep breaths. Once my mind was less of a whirlwind of panic, I opened my suitcase and carefully took everything out. I repacked everything meticulously, pausing between items to tell Apollo what I was putting into the case.
GeekBoy: Flip-flops and slip-on shoes.
HungLikeAGreekGod: They’ll come in handy. Do you have something more rugged for visiting Knossos and walking up to Zeus’s birthplace?
GeekBoy: My boots, but I’ll be wearing those on the flight.
HungLikeAGreekGod: I think that’s all the footwear you’ll need. What’s next?
GeekBoy: Five pairs of socks. To wear with the boots, not the flip-flops or slip-on shoes.
HungLikeAGreekGod: I’m glad that fashion crisis has been averted.
GeekBoy: Please. As if I would wear socks and sandals. Seven pairs of underwear.
HungLikeAGreekGod: That’s plenty.
I was almost disappointed that he hadn’t asked for more details. Why would he? We were friends, nothing more. Friends didn’t ask each other about their underwear.
GeekBoy: Seven T-shirts, four pairs of shorts, two pairs of jeans, plus the pair I’ll be wearing on the plane. Some little clothing in case I get the chance to be little. Two pairs of swimming trunks. A hat, sun cream, my toiletries bag, which has toothpaste, a toothbrush, and stuff to shave with. Lube and condoms just in case.
HungLikeAGreekGod: I told you. You have everything you need.
GeekBoy: Deodorant will be in my carry-on.
HungLikeAGreekGod: Good plan. What else do you have in your carry-on?
I added my favourite dildo to my suitcase and zipped it back up. Then I unpacked the small rucksack I was taking as hand luggage.
GeekBoy: Sunglasses, the aforementioned deodorant, currency, my wallet, a spare change of clothes just in case my luggage goes missing, my passport, and last but not least, batteries for my B.O.B.
HungLikeAGreekGod: What’s a B.O.B?
I snort-laughed at the thought that a porn star didn’t know what B.O.B stands for.
GeekBoy: Battery-operated boyfriend.
HungLikeAGreekGod: Why didn’t you just say dildo?
GeekBoy: B.O.B is more discreet.
HungLikeAGreekGod: You don’t need to be discreet with me.
5 out of 5 (exceptional)
GREEKING OUT is part of the Destination Daddies series, and now I have a new series to read!
Troy and Apollo meet online through the Cuffd app and strike up a friendship. Troy is a boy who has been badly hurt, and Apollo is a porn star who wants more. With Troy's honesty and Myth of the Day, they become integrated into each other's lives, even though they have an ocean between them. When Troy bravely overcomes his fear of flying and goes to Greece, a very nice surprise awaits him.
I loved this story! From the slow, online friendship, to the meeting, to the constant love and assurance they both show each other. I loved how we were shown how Sean slipped out of Troy's mind under the loving care of Apollo. Told from dual perspectives, you really got a feel for these guys.
This is a sweet and steamy summer story that I thoroughly enjoyed with fantastic descriptions of Greece, enough to make me want to go there immediately. I really hope Collette (or someone else in the Destination Daddies series) gives Jared his HEA.
A low angst, friends-to-lovers story that you really need to read. Loved it.
