The first book in the series to have only a single model. Stormy background seems to be reflective of "the fighter" in this series. I've been looking forward to Tony's story from the beginning and look forward to reading this one.
> > Looking Deeper < <
First person POV and despite the title, the majority is told from Father Stephen's perspective!
Tony's been the sullen, moody, and brooding resident usually lurking in the background since the start of the series. A resident of Mockingbird Place since he was a minor, he looked to Malcom, Sarah and Martha as parental figures. He's a MMA fighter with unique style that is really telling about the demons he fights on a daily basis.
Stephen, while being a man of the cloth, had a dark past as well. Yet he still insists on being seen as a flesh-and-blood man with needs, wants, feelings and desires. Things that scare the ever-loving hell out of Tony. Having read this series from the beginning, I'd been drawn to the tortured soul that was/is Tony all along. He had been a quiet, yet compelling, background character and I was so very glad to see it was finally his turn to have his story told.
Tony and Stephen have a very rocky relationship, sometimes not even sure if they are friends, this rockiness goes from hot to cold, one step forward swiftly followed by two steps back. Their chemistry was difficult to buy into. Stephen backed his words with actions often, showing support and love to Tony from almost the start. Tony, however fought any feelings he had and continued to push Stephen and many others away when he felt they were getting too close. They really were polar opposites and it made me wonder a lot throughout the story how they were going to get to their HEA which seemed nearly impossible. It was only in response to a serious event that things suddenly perform a complete 180. Again, I had a little trouble accepting that as it happened.
Regardless... the plot was full of activity and the cast was filled with the rest of the Mockingbird characters and residence as well as other new characters. The flow was steady. This installment of the series was one huge conflict which, thankfully and finally, was able to find a resolution. The conclusion is solid and satisfying. There were a few very minor points of predictability, but the timing of them was not foreseen, making it much more acceptable.
Overall, I found this to be a wonderful addition to the series. I think I'd personally built Tony up so much in my mind, though, that I'd expected "more" out of his story... "more" what? I'm not sure. More relationship, a stronger connection sooner? I do not know. The story was not lacking any of the elements that I normally look for, it just did not match the expectations I'd had built up for it in my mind.
Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.2 ~ Stars: 4
Stephen is an Episcopal priest with a deep faith and love for God and his church, he also has a deep love for fighter Anthony, but Anthony gives him mixed messages on how he actually feels. Stephen knows they are meant to be together and will not give up on Anthony. Anthony has lived a hard, hard life and fighting is his way of dealing with it. He likes Stephen sure, but he’s not sure he believes in God or love, so beyond a feel-good hook up he doesn’t a future with Stephen.
Everyone in Mockingbird Place is rooting for these two and so was I! They certainly don’t have it easy, dealing with childhood traumas, doubts and major internal walls, this relationship isn’t anywhere near perfect. I loved that Stephen never gave up on Anthony though, walking away was not an option. He was so strong in his love for Anthony that even in the rough moments, it doesn’t waver. I felt like I understood both men in this story and even when it hurt I could see the reasons behind their actions. Even though it takes a tragedy to make Anthony realize what’s important, it was so touching to finally see him make that breakthrough and admit how he really felt.
Again, I have loved this series and Stephen and Anthony were a fantastic addition! This book really brings all of the characters together in a beautiful, touching way. I laughed and cried in this book and once again felt like these people are my friends. Kris Cook has created a great little community in Mockingbird Place with fantastic friends and wonderful relationships. I highly recommend this series and can’t wait to see what comes next from Mr. Cook!
I was so sad to read the ending credits in this book because I didn't want to see it come to an end.
As always Kris did not disappoint his readers, especially not this reader!
