My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I adored Garrett and Kai’s story in the first book even though it surprised the hell out of me. But this one? Blew me the hell away. Both characters seemed so shallow on the surface. Dominic’s trying to figure out who is both in the world and also in the gay world. Luke is just looking for his next hookup. But when they meet neither one expects to feel anything for the other. I felt like a cheerleader on the sidelines with this book – rooting for the two of them to find their way, cheering when good things happened, crying when they didn’t, and smiling again when they began to see their way through again. This book was not all happy smiles and roses – it was real and gritty with tears and heartbreak and real issues to try to work through and then we get to the smiles and happy because that’s what real relationships are like and this was so worth it.
