This was a wonderfully written story. There is so much right with this book (*spoilers ahead*). I applaud the author for NOT making Henry's positive status the focal point of this beautiful story. Yes, it is mentioned, but it was written such that it was a secondary character and not the sole purpose of Henry. Henry, who proved to be intelligent, strong and charming as hell. I was enamored of the interactions between Henry and Ezra. They were smart, sexy hot, tender and loving. Ezra was the epitome of an older gentleman, which clicked my buttons.
My only real complaint? Seemed rushed at the end. Everything had a smooth flow until the last few chapters. Yes, everything was addressed but it felt like I was cheated.
A wonderful story and a great continuation of the Queen City Rogues series. I am secretly hoping for a Geoff/Des book...…..please make that happen!
Love this entire series. Hope there will be more.
Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Henry is homeless, rejected by his parents for being gay and HIV positive. When he arrives at Ryan’s Place, set up to help teens like him, he finds his potential, and eventually, with a lot of hard work under his belt, he begins classes at community college toward a degree that will ultimately help him pay back all he’s been given. There, teaching his class on Human Sexuality, is the silver fox professor he spent a one-night stand with on his 21st birthday that summer.
Professor Ezra Meyer never expected to see the young man of his dreams again but there he is, front and center, and though Ezra long ago determined he’d never date or fall in love again, he finds Henry hard to resist. The story encompasses their push-pull, on again-off again move toward a lasting relationship with extra drama provided by an old friend of Ezra’s who wanted to be his lover and does everything he can to break them up—including telling Ezra’s department chair—a move that will cost him his job.
Henry is a sweetheart, strong, smart, driven to make it on his own but with a heart as big as he is and that heart is determined to love Ezra. I enjoyed Ezra’s character too, but he did an about-face midway through the story, and I’m not sure if that was on purpose or how the character evolved as the author wrote. He started out somewhat domineering, strong, determined to be alone, all-knowing of the principles of human sexuality and willing to demonstrate. And along the way, he became softer, more romantic, committed to helping Henry and staying with him through the turmoil created by their relationship. In other words, he was soft and mushy by the end and that had good points and bad.
All in all, I enjoy this author’s writing, and though I haven’t read more than 50% of her work, each story has been enjoyable, with great characters, sexy times, and a HEA, and some days that’s all I need.
A word about the cover by Jay Aheer: not only is the guy on the cover, who is taking off his shirt and tie, a smokin’ hot silver fox who’d catch anyone’s eye, he just happens to be my favorite narrator in disguise as a model. Go, Joel!
