This book contains strong adult content that may not be suitable for readers sensitive to hard to read subjects.
◄◄ My Thoughts ►►
I’ve never been a cover-whore!! But this cover screamed “READ ME NOW”. Obviously, I had to comply.
I’m not a MM connoisseur, in fact, this is only my 3rd MM read. However, it worked for me on every level. The raw emotional aspect of the story and the ongoing action and drama added to my overall enjoyment. The star of this story is the emotional connection between the main characters. Greg is an amazing character! Total yum!
This new author excels at binding the reader to the characters. The writing isn’t the most eloquent I’ve read, but that didn’t impact my enjoyment at all. I wanted to know these characters. I gave up sleep to finish their story. And I love my sleep!!
Here’s what I absolutely loved: Well, I’ve already mentioned Greg. I felt for him. He’s hiding in plain sight. He not only hides his sexuality, but also his feelings for his best friend. The pain of those secrets starts to eat away at him and I empathized with his pain.
Jake had a tough life growing up. Because of that, he acts out in ways that I may not understand, but are definitely believable. I felt for him and admired him at the same time!
It was truly great to see how Jake and those around him dealt with the various situations thrown at them over the course of the book. There’s a lot going on!
I also enjoyed seeing Bree and Declan get their happily ever after. I loved their story and it was great to see their progression.
Overall, this sexy little book was a hit with me. Things got a little dicey at the end with the new storyline, but I’m definitely interested to see how it all plays out.
I rate it 4 Solid Stars
