Kurzbeschreibung

30. Dezember 2009 St. Nacho's

For reasons they can't explain, Ken and Jordan are drawn together, each finding in each other the thing they most need.

When Jordan Jensen moves to St. Nacho's he has one goal in mind: starting over. He wants to reconnect with best friends Cooper and Shawn yet is uncertain of his welcome. He has the skills to get a job, but isn't sure any prospective employer can get past the time he spent in jail for alcohol-related vehicular homicide. He's past the worst part of his life but knows it will haunt him forever. So Jordan plans a life of quiet service. One thing he knows for sure: finding love is entirely too much to ask.

On the first day of his new job, Jordan meets Ken Ashton. Ken has every reason to hate Jordan for his past: Ken's baseball career was shattered in a drunk-driving accident. But for some reason he can't explain, Ken needs Jordan's touch and finds healing within Jordan's warmth and strength.

Without entirely understanding it, Ken and Jordan develop a powerful emotional and erotic connection, but Ken must help Jordan find the faith to trust it. Unexpected help comes from the people of Santo Ignacio--and the town itself--a place where Physical Therapy can be a path toward spiritual healing and powerful, passionate love.

Publisher's Note: This book contains explicit sexual content and includes anal play/intercourse and male/male sexual practices.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Einfühlsam! 18. Mai 2010
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Jordan Jensen hat vor Jahren in betrunkenem Zustand einen Autounfall verursacht, bei dem ein Kind ums Leben kam. Dafür musste er ins Gefängnis. Anschließend absolvierte er eine Ausbildung zum Massagetherapeuten und Personal-Trainer. Jordan weiß, dass ihn seine Schuld immer verfolgen wird, aber er hat sich geändert und kommt nach St. Nacho`s, um hier ein neues Leben anzufangen. Am ersten Tag in seinem neuen Job lernt er Ken kennen. Ken wurde bei einem Autounfall - ebenfalls verursacht durch einen betrunkenen Fahrer - schwer verletzt, sodass eine Karriere als Profi-Baseballspieler nicht mehr möglich ist. Ken ist verbittert und kann die Berührungen von anderen Menschen nicht ertragen. Bei einer Massagebehandlung durch Jordan entdeckt Ken jedoch, dass er sich gut fühlt, wenn Jordan ihn berührt. Jordan möchte Ken helfen, ihm die Wahrheit aber nicht verschweigen, deshalb erzählt er ihm von seiner Vergangenheit. Nach dem ersten Schock versucht Ken trotzdem, sich Jordan zu nähern, denn dessen Berührungen haben noch ganz andere Wünsche in ihm wachgerufen. Obwohl sich auch Jordan von Ken angezogen fühlt, sträubt er sich gegen eine Beziehung, weil er sich nicht für gut genug für Ken hält und glaubt, dass er selbst es nicht verdient hat, glücklich zu sein.
Denkt man zuerst, dass Jordan derjenige ist, der Ken über die Folgen des Unfalls hinweghelfen muss, stellt sich bald heraus, dass Jordan selbst Hilfe nötig hat. Und er bekommt sie von Ken, der trotz seiner körperlichen und seelischen Probleme der Stärkere von beiden zu sein scheint. Mit Hartnäckigkeit und Geduld bringt er Jordan dazu, dass er ihm und sich selbst vertraut und ihrer Beziehung eine Chance gibt.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Dramatische Gay-Love-Story 12. Januar 2012
Von Geisha X
Format:Taschenbuch
Jordan Jenson kommt nach St. Nacho's um hier sein Glück zu suchen - oder jedenfalls eine Version davon, denn er kann sich nicht verzeihen, dass er vor Jahren betrunken am Steuer den Tod eines kleinen Jungen verschuldet hat. Durch seine Ausbildung als Masseur und Physiotherapeut findet er eine Anstellung im örtlichen Fitness-Center und lernt Ken kennen. Ken ist bei einem Unfall verletzt worden, der durch einen Betrunkenen verursacht wurde und seine Freundin wurde dabei getötet. Vom ersten Moment an knistert es zwischen den beiden, doch Jordan stehen seine Schuldgefühle im Weg zum Glück.

Maxfield hat einen sicheren Platz unter den bekannteren Verfassern von Gay Romances - nicht zu unrecht. Die Schreibweise ist versiert, die Charaktere tief, die Erotik knistert. Dass "Pysical Therapy" trotzdem "nur" drei Punkte von mir bekommt liegt daran, dass mir das Buch persönlich einfach zu dramatisch und problembeladen war und mich an den Rande des Depressionsstatus gebracht hat. Auch die Spur des Kriminalfalls die darin ist und völlig ungelöst bleibt, hat mich nicht befriedigt. Die Darstellung der erotischen Szenen jedoch ist Maxfields grösste Stärke - zumindest auf dem Gebiet gibt es nix zu bemägeln.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Physical Therapy by Z.A. Maxfield 6. November 2009
Von Elisa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is almost a wrap up book; it's the sequel of St. Nacho's and following the loose strand that was Jordan, Cooper's ex. When St. Nacho's ended, there was hope for Jordan, obviously not to be again with Cooper, but at least to build again a life. And Cooper suggested to the man to come to St. Nacho's, a place that seems to heal your soul more than your body. And to St. Nacho's Jordan comes, but he is not ready to be healed; Jordan is still eating alive by the guilt and he doesn't want to be discharged. I have the idea that more punishment you bring upon Jordan, and more he would ask. This is something that was quite clear in the previous book, where Jordan insisted to live in a town where almost everyone wants for him to go away. It was quite clear in his choosing to be the "project" of a young priest, full of good will, but maybe a bit too devoted to his task. And it was quite clear in the places Jordan chose to frequent, places where the BDSM was pushed a bit too much beyond the safe boundaries of a naughty play (but in this second book this last aspect is barely hinted and it's not an important part of the story).

In Physical Therapy this destructive behavior of Jordan is brought up front from the first moment, when Jordan applies for a job as masseur in a gym, and instead of exalting his credentials, he tries to shadow them with his con past. Lucky him Izzie, the gym's owner, is not easily mislead, and Jordan finds a work and a friend in the same day... and maybe even a boyfriend. Ken is a guy who was involved in a car accident, he was seriously injured and his girlfriend died on the place. The accident was caused by a drunk driver and so Jordan thinks that, if Ken knew the truth about him, he wouldn't have anything to do with Jordan, and obviously Jordan, self-destructive as he is, tells Ken the truth... and Ken doesn't react as expected.

Many people, his family and friends, think that the accident deprived Ken of his future as a baseball professional star: he was leading toward success, with a nice girlfriend beside him; he was the first son and obviously the perfect son, of a perfect family; all was lied in front of him and not real obstacles where on the horizons. Then the accident, and all crushed down... but it were Ken's hopes that died in that accident with his girlfriend or those of his friends and family? What is that Ken really wants? It's strange, but I have the feeling that the accident freed Ken of all those constraints, letting him finally free to do what and be who he really wants. And one of the thing he wants is to be with Jordan, even if Jordan does everything to discourage him.

Jordan believes to be the one who is helping Ken to heal, and instead I have the idea that the one who is healing is Jordan, and Ken is only finally reaching for the life he wants: having no more to bear the weight of being the perfect son, the hope of the town, allows him to be a simple guy in love with another guy.

It's hard to be disappointed by a Z.A. Maxfield's book, she has a faithful and growing readership, and I believe that this one is nicely up to the previous one, St. Nacho's, maybe not so angst like that one, but still a book that will move the sentimental reader. And again a nice setting in the fictional town of St. Nacho's, a place I wouldn't have believed possible to exist till last year, when I went in California, and actually visited those small beach village, developed around their pier and where it seems that the time has another pace than the rest of the world.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Why are the best M/M erotic books written by women? 8. Juni 2011
Von RSRS - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
As a gay man, I used to be a fan of short gay erotica, as found in such anthologies as "Best Gay Erotica" and "Friction." But in recent years, I've been turned off by most of the stories in these anthologies because they are often too kinky, focus on S&M, involve violence, or present the participants as being shallow with no lasting feelings for their partners. Recently a friend introduced me to the erotic gay novel, and I'm hooked. I've read perhaps half a dozen, and they are all written by women. Why is that? I think because women in general treat sex as going well beyond the simple physical act. Most of the gay novels I've read feature the participants as really caring for one another, and the sex itself doesn't focus just on dicks and asses, but on the whole person, including psychological components. Male writers tend to focus more on the role of dominance in a relationship, the pleasure of the orgasm, and the desire to climax. Opposed to that, what really appeals to me is a story in which the two guys spend lots of time turning each other on, talk to each other both during and after sex as though they really care, and enjoy not only the excruciating physical pleasure of the act but also the psychological involvement of deeply caring for the other person.

"Physical Therapy" is a good example of what I crave in gay erotica. Beyond sex, the story goes into Jordan's guilt feelings, based on his past actions. It's less explicit about how Ken, the other guy, happens to develop his attraction to Jordan, but the reader still gets the idea that Ken does indeed love (or least intensely like) Jordan.

One test of a good read is whether the scenario seems plausible. I was able to think that what happened between Jordan and Ken was believable. The actions of the supporting characters were also in the ballpark, which contributed to my high rating for this book. At the same time, in my limited exposure to this genre to date, I'd rate one author above Z.A. Maxfield. That is M.L. Rhodes. Her book, "Under My Skin," is the best gay erotica I've ever read. In what way? Sebastian and Dylan are very "real" people, with issues and feelings that any human being can relate to. The sex scenes are truly phenomenal and are skillfilly woven into the overall plot. I enjoyed "getting to know" both these men, and would have been happy to have either one of them as a lover.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Physical Therapy- A Joyfully Recommended Title 8. April 2010
Von MNix - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Jordan Jensen has not led an exemplary life. He served time in prison for driving drunk and abused his body in ways he never should have. He believes himself beyond redemption. After coming to terms with his past, Jordan decides to dedicate his future to making up for the sins of his past even though his plan doesn't really allow him to be happy or loved. He journeys to St. Nacho's in search for the peace his best friend has found there and quickly finds himself at a loss when the community readily embraces him. Jordan is then surprised by the bond that he forms with Ken Ashton - a victim of a drunk diving accident. It's a relationship that has the potential to blossom into love. However, Jordan doesn't think he can allow himself the luxury or pleasure of this connection, especially if he wants to follow the path he has set for himself.

St. Nacho's 2: Physical Therapy is an excellent sequel to St. Nacho's where the reader first meets Jordan as a self-centered, out of control, and almost completely self-destructive man. However, this time around Z.A. Maxfield manages to redeem an almost unredeemable character by the depth of emotion and genuine grief that Jordan carries with him. As the story progresses Jordan becomes such a lovable character that you end up rooting for him with the same potency as you once disliked him. Jordan is, by far, one of the most surprising characters I've come across in a long time as his emotional journey is complex and heart wrenching when he travels the road from self-loathing to the possibility of love in his life in the form of Ken Ashton. Ken, on the other hand, is numb by the experience of his tragic accident, but for some reason, Jordan makes him feel alive and hopeful that his life can be better. The relationship between Jordan and Ken is rocky, plagued by Jordan's feelings of guilt and Ken's family's resistance. Against all odds it blooms into a romance to be envied. One where they both find strength in each other and become better men. This story is also peppered by unique and charming secondary characters that will envelop you completely and not let you go. As expected Z.A. Maxfield presents a clear emotional picture of Jordan and Ken without getting lost in the sadness of their past, yet she pushes all the right buttons to make you feel part of the story. Get yourself St. Nacho's 2: Physical Therapy the next time you are looking for a sexy emotional story with great characters, plot, and the miracle of love. You will be glad you did!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Delightful rich story! 20. September 2009
Von A Southern Girl - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
What a delightful story this was! "Physical Therapy" is a beautiful sequel to Maxfield's "St. Nacho's" and tells the story of Jordan Jensen and Ken Ashton, two men who have both experienced a life-changing tragedy. Each has been involved in a fatal drunk-driving accident, but from opposing sides. Their relationship, as mirror images of each other, is a beautiful thing to watch develop. Throughout the book, they each struggle to learn to live again while dealing with this difficult experience.

The characters are rich and fascinating, full of all of the beauty and flaws of life. It was great to be reacquainted with the setting of St. Ignacio and the characters from "St. Nacho's", especially Cooper and Shawn.

If you like well-written and funny books full of angst, man/man love, and lots of hot love scenes, you are sure to love this one! If you haven't read "St. Nacho's" yet, I would suggest that you start with that wonderful book and then read this one. However, if you just cannot wait, "Physical Therapy" is definitely a stand-alone book and can be enjoyed on it's own.

Thanks, Z. A. Maxfield, for another great book!
3.0 von 5 Sternen Not much substance 10. Februar 2014
Von Jewel Cardwell - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This book was okay, but definitely not my favorite. It started out good enough, but overall the story reminded me of cotton candy -- it's sweet and fluffy, but doesn't have a lot of substance.

I'm glad that Jordan has gotten his life together and has found away to help others. I couldn't stand him for most of his page time in St. Nacho's. He was still blaming other people for his screw ups rather than taking responsibility for his actions. He's come a long way since then and I'm happy for that. And I'm glad he found Ken. I just wish their story had some depth.
