Coffee shop owner Chris O'Neal is too old and jaded to be attracted to the young, energetic delivery boy, but he just can't stay away. Lance Degrassi is the life of the party and he has big plans for his life, starting with graduate school at his top choice in Cali. A friends-with-benefits agreement seems like the best option for Chris but as he spends more time with Lance he begins to enjoy life again. But as the graduate school deadline nears, will it all be over or just the beginning?
What I Liked
I enjoyed this one, though not as much as Albert's #gaymers series. I took a step out of my normal routine and read a series out of order (a big deal for me!) because I liked this plot line more than the previous two. That being said, I had no problem understanding the characters as this was pretty much a stand alone and I did buy the 1st and 2nd after finishing this one. I loved how fun and energetic Lance was but at the same time he was very mature and had a good life plan for himself. Usually characters are just one or the other so it was nice to have this characterization. His maturity helped bridge the gap in ages between Lance and Chris. Chris was more gruff but by no means was he grumpy and being around Lance brought out a more playful side. They were very sweet together and it was nice to see them learn to depend on each other.
What Needs Work
Though I enjoyed Chris's point of view, I would have loved to also have Lance's since I like to read both sides of a romance. But even with only one POV, we still get a lot of Lance through his actions. There were some instances where I wanted Chris to just get over his insecurities but for the most part I was fine with it.
Chris is a jaded 34 year old man just getting out of a long term relationship and is ready to put on his old man pants and yell at kids for stepping on his lawn. He owns a local coffee shop and is opening doors for a delivery when he sees one incredible ass swaying to the music in his ears. Lance is a 22 year old college boy is full of life, spirit and determination. He immediately sets his eyes on Chris and is determined to spend some time with him. After a one night stand they agree to be friends with benefits. Friends with benefits evolves into something more but Chris can't get over the age gap. Chris believes Lance has so much more potential for his future and that he'll eventually chose better.
This story will make you laugh at Lance's antics, feel Chris's pain and heat you up between your legs.
I love how it is not the older hero Chris that is in pursuit but Lane the much younger delivery guy.
The joy in this book is all the little details about each hero that are revealed and how they make their relationship work.
A lovely read. I love a sunny hero paired with a grumpy one.
It’s complicated and sweet and Lance is the bravest.
I believe that this is the final book in the series but I'm hoping that the author reconsiders that. I love the Portland, OR setting and would like to see more of it.
Having the hots for a guy 13 years younger is not easy. For a number of reasons.
And so it also isn't for Chris when he first meets 22yo sexy, hot, smart, sweet and just plain adorable Lance.
He's not ready for what hit him just then, a truckload of yummy lust for starters.
Can't be though. Lance deserves better than an (inked, sexy, grumpy) old man, doesn't he?
He has his coffee shop. And two speeds, bitter and grumpy. And that's fine with him. He tells the story, his POV throughout the book.
But young Lance has his mind set on what he wants from life and so when he (beautiful, sweet, sexy Lance) pursues Chris relentlessly, his desire for the younger man trumps everything else.
And when lust and the HOTTEST sex ever for both of them turns into affection, warm, quiet nights and love, he cannot wrap his mind around the idea of young Lance giving up on his dream, his life... on anything really, just for him.
Life is not easy. Is also not full of second chances.
I'll let you know right now this ends well. Their lives are not fully in place but the HEA is right there for you to warm yourself over.
And then, life starts ^^
