Theo is a voyeur, he doesn't call himself this, he's just observant (his words), but at the heart of it he's a voyeur. I was excited about that aspect of this book because I haven't read any books like it before and Kate Hawthorne always has the best kink. Theo saw everything and everyone, but no one really saw him, they didn't get him or his needs and why he liked what he liked...until Brad caught him that is.
Brad is a precious baby and I wanted to protect him from the world. My heart hurt for him over and over again while reading. He was coasting through life, his secrets a heavyweight on him, until he realized that Theo was there, watching him. Seeing him. In more ways than one.
Together, they navigate Brad's healing. Theo is patient and kind and perfect for Brad. He doesn't push, but he's always there for whenever and whatever Brad needs. From reclaiming his sexuality to falling in love to getting the support from his brothers that he wasn't ready for years ago. This book has it all and my heart is currently in tatters because it's so full of love for the characters and sadness that in order for their story to be told one of them had to hurt.
Hurt/comfort is one of my favorite tropes because while it's hard to read the pain of a character, it's so invigorating to see them take back their life. Brad gets that but he gets so much more. He discovers parts of himself that he didn't know existed because of what happened to him. Theo gets it, too. He gets someone who doesn't shame him for what he likes but encourages him to be himself, to watch, to take, to feel everything he's always wanted to.
Fearless was everything. Brad and Theo are everything. Their love story was both hard and easy at the same time. Easy in that they were able to see each other right away. They just got it. Hard because there were emotions all over the place and I just wanted to take care of them until I knew they would be okay.
These Motel brothers just keep getting better and better. Every single book I think that those characters are my favorite and then they get upstaged by their brother in the next one because they're so good. Kinky and loveable and so broken in ways none of us understand until we read their book. No one suspected that this is the way Brad's book was going to go. Until now he kept his past a tight-lipped secret. That only makes me wonder what Andy is holding back because you could see it was something. He even admitted that there as a guy out there somewhere. And Andy is so dominant, such a "there" presence, I cannot wait to see what happens in his book. I have a feeling he's going to take us all for a ride.
Right from the prologue, this book stole my heart. It was crushing, devastating to see Brad's innocent excitement about college get shattered by his assault. Please pay attention to the warnings because this scene is difficult to read. You can still enjoy the rest of the story without reading the prologue, if needed.
Brad's life in Cherry Creek is regimented, structured in ways to keep Brad in his safe bubble. He only sleeps in his bed behind a locked door, only eats and drinks food he's seen prepared, and never seeks out intimacy. As much as he desperately wants to feel normal, he doesn't know how to even think about bringing someone else into his life. In contrast, Theo literally grew up in the Cherry Creek Motel, always in the background observing everything around him. Though he has a huge crush on Brad, he feels safer watching and listening from a distance.
Theo's voyeurism is both the catalyst for Brad and Theo's relationship and a source of pain for Theo as he struggles to balance his desires with his need to give Brad the commitment and exclusivity he deserves. I've never read a book with a voyeuristic main character, and I found it fascinating to explore this new kink and understand Theo's motivation. While their initial scenes were a bit awkward, as Brad and Theo navigated their new dynamic, their later experiments with voyeurism were incredibly steamy. I love how Brad got to set the terms for Theo: "it's not me watching you, it's you giving me something to see." The way Theo went beautifully pliant when Brad took control was shiver-inducing.
While the sex Brad and Theo have is insanely hot, what got to me most were the softer moments in this book. Theo gives Brad so much attention and adoration, making sure he's always safe and comfortable in Theo's presence. Even when Brad feels insecure about his food issues or inability to be intimate, Theo is right there, quietly showing him that none of that matters. Brad, in turn, is supportive and accepting of Theo always, even when Theo doesn't think he deserves Brad's affection. I love that this couple showcased a softer side of love, with quiet confessions under the stars and a deep sense of devotion and trust.
Although this book has a heavy backstory, it's definitely the softest book so far in this series. Even the Motel family drama was pretty short-lived here. Now, can we please *please* get to Andy's story because he and his mysterious postcards have me so curious!
