Sam Keller knows he’ll never find the excitement he craves in Middleton, Iowa—not while he’s busting his ass in nursing school and paying rent by slaving away in a pharmacy stockroom. But before his mother died, he promised her he’d grow up to be a good man, so he needs a stable career and a good husband, not a dead-end job and empty sex.
Then Sam meets Mitch Tedsoe, an independent trucker who makes a delivery to a shop across the alley. Innocent flirting quickly leads to an affair, and when Mitch offers to take Sam on a road trip west, Sam jumps at the chance for adventure with his fantasy man... but Mitch also comes with a past. A threesome with the other man in Mitch’s life would have been just another kinky ride, but somewhere between the Mississippi River and the Colorado Rockies, Sam falls in love.
But can a relationship born out of escape and indulgence become something that lasts? Will a fantasy man be willing to settle down into reality, or is the adventure and excitement Sam finds with Mitch just another stop on a delivery man’s journey? For better or for worse, eventually Sam is going to discover the answer, because no matter how far away he travels, eventually all roads lead home.

Dear Author, Best of 2010
This well written story is definitely worth reading. I really liked both Mitch and Sam and although I wasn't too taken with Randy I did feel that his presence helped to solidify their relationship. The sex scenes are well written, at times very erotic and at others almost romantic in feel. The BDSM in this story is not hard core instead it portrays certain kinks, including domination, exhibitionism and humiliation, in a way that should not put off anyone interested in but not too familiar with BDSM. Overall the central theme is the sexual and emotional journey Sam undertakes and his connection with Mitch. That theme is presented well throughout and made this a compelling story with a wonderful ending. I'm happy to recommend it. (Lily at Rainbow Reviews)
This book really is more than the sum of its parts, and whether you choose to read it for the erotic bits, or the story of a young man coming into his full flowering, you won’t be disappointed. A rich and wonderful read. Highly recommended. (Ann Sommerville at Outlaw Reviews)
Special Delivery is one of those rare gay romances that do not feel awkward, fake, or contrived to me. Everything flows naturally - the narrative, the pacing, and the character development. (Mrs. Giggles)
This is a fabulous little story. I pretty much can’t recommend it highly enough. If you like K.A. Mitchell, I think you’ll love this book. Same type of character-driven romance. Same hot hot sex. And the ending is, I think, the first full-on proposal scene I’ve seen in a m/m romance. (Sarah Frantz at Dear Author)
Special Delivery is a study of exploration, finding out what your limits are, and with whom you want to explore those limits. Overall,Special Delivery is a good, page turning read. (Lilyraines at Night Owl Reviews)
It is a beautifully told story about people finding each other, finding themselves, and falling in love, all wrapped up with a Goldilocks kink bow. With whipped cream. And Peaches. (Penny Wilder at Penny Reads Romance)
