The book was interesting because every chapter was from a different character's point of view. So there were five voices giving their take on the events they were most involved in.
And it takes place in Cleveland, Ohio, where I was born, so some of the locations are very familiar to me.
The story concerns two brothers who own a gym near downtown Cleveland. One is straight, one gay. The others include a young woman who runs the juice bar and teaches Zumba classes, a bitch accountant who has been stealing money and cooking the books, while planning to try to breakup the straight brother and his wife and marry him. And finally an advertising exec the brothers hire who has a crush on the gay brother. A tragedy occurs, bringing these characters closer together and furthering Beverly's ( the accountants) plans, which turn even more evil.
Pick this one up and I know you'll want to read the next two as much as I do.
This story involves an interweaving of relationships, and even includes a bit of tragedy and mayhem. It is told in alternating chapters from the viewpoint of various characters and as such is fast-moving and engaging. Readers who want steamy sex scenes will be rewarded with several, but those who want sympathetic characters will also find them.
This book was slow. Very slow. I think I was at least half way through the book before it seemed to finally get around to the plot.
Also, something that irritated me a lot was the constant shift between character viewpoints/narrators. (There were about 5 of them.) The viewpoint shift doesn't usually bother me in books, but there were too many switches between too many characters in this one, and it simply didn't add enough (or have enough relevance) for that format to make sense to me.
Likely due to the inconsistent viewpoint, I never got around to connecting with the characters. None of the "tragedy" or mild angst pulled at my heart, and if a story can't manage that then it's pretty much a lost cause for me.
I'm very glad when I confirmed that this was a free book when I bought it, because I'd have been extremely, extremely frustrated if I would've paid for it.
The story is good and I like the writing style, it's easy and full of feelings. Still I lacked the feeling of getting sucked in to the book like I do with some books.
It's a good read and I will read the others in this series.
The book is filled with a variety of characters who comprise the staff and clientele of the gym. It was exciting and very fast paced story. We're shown the interactions between the staff members and the clientele. A horrible tragedy affects the staff and everyone close to them. The love and friendship they feel for each other as they pull together as a family was wonderful to read about.
I find it amazing that Aria and Kyan were able to write such a seamless book that made me laugh, cry and just kept me eagerly reading as quickly as I could. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and am glad to see that the follow-up books in the series have already been released! I can't wait to read more!
Moments of angst that lead to vindication.
Moments of love blooming that lead to passionate expression.
The cast of characters is incredible and you will find yourselves engrossed and pining by the end.
I received this book as an ARC in return for an honest review.
