Tate meets Emory while tending bar at the Flamingo, a LGBTQ bar owned by Tate's grandmother, who also seems to be estranged from Tate's parents. Wishing to avoid the embarrassment of going to his brother's engagement party alone, Emory accepts Tate's friendly gesture to attend the function as Em's fake plus-one. This seemingly simple and innocuous arrangement, however, leads to a much more complicated series of events and emotions between the two men.
First, I must say that I am in awe of how brilliantly this book is written. Not only is the plot quite involved and complex by itself, but the subplots of the book certainly add a multi-dimensional quality of cohesiveness and intrigue to the book, as well. Indeed, with all the twists, turns and dips in this novel, I it found extremely difficult to put down!! The secondary characters in this novel are priceless. With each adding his own idiosyncrasies of personality, the secondary characters help to ground the main characters and give Em and Tate a sense of perspective, reality and direction.
The style of writing is superb in Free Spirit… the author writes with a meticulous attention to detail concerning descriptions of physical places and seemingly mundane situations, which, in my opinion, gives the book an exotic and charming appeal. The interactions of Em and Tate with each of his respective family members, and the way in which they were described in the book, is a testament to the ability of the author to convey each character's feelings of emotional confusion and mindset.
Spencer Spears is an absolute master at putting the feelings of his characters to words. While reading the book, I was spellbound by the imagery of the words used to describe the ways the guys were feeling. It was as if the reader was living inside the consciousness of each character - feeling the misery, alienation, fear, loneliness…. and, fortunately, the feelings of gratitude, inclusiveness and love, as well.
A wonderful read, with a little bit of mystery, angst and controversy - and a whole lotta love!! 5 stars, definitely!!
💕🔥😍 A really good read with 🎭drama, 💕romance, 🔥passion and 😃humor. This is a great series and another of three lovable brothers, this time Emory, born and bred in a Georgia coastal island Victorian inn, meets his match with a fun meet-cute in a bar in Savannah. Their relationship starts with a big lie that just snowballs and soon neither Tate not Emory even knows how (or if he wants ) to get out of it.
With a plethora of strict, unsympathetic parents and grandparents (Charlotte, Tate's grandmother the exception), some really out of order friends (mixed in with a few well-meaning ones), a long-time family mystery to solve and some crucial career decisions to make, the romance is nicely fleshed out with enough setbacks and complications to make the characters real and well-deserving of their HEA. This is a standalone story with no cliffhangers but it does bring back Emory's family and some of the island locals featured in the earlier part of the series, most notably partners Deacon and Mal, Deacon's cat-loving daughter Lily and irascible third brother Connor (he's another novel waiting to happen; I can't wait!)😊
One of the highlights for me was the frenetic wedding scene near the end of the story. One of the grooms is SO comical in his desire to escape the spotlight, EVEN at his own big day! Does he have any chance of it? Get the book and find out!😏,
I read a complimentary advance copy of the book but bought it anyway to ensure that it would remain on my bookshelf. Not the first Spencer Spears book I purchased and probably not the last either!
This is my first time reading anything by Spencer Spears and I have to say I’ll definitely be reading more from this author because I loved Free Spirit!
Heck I actually pouted when I got to the end of the book because I wasn’t ready to leave Em and Tate’s world because I enjoyed visiting it.
But anyway if you are looking for my advice about Free Spirit about whether or not you should get it.
Well my advice would be get this book because I can honestly guarantee you won’t be disappointed in making that choice, because it is absolutely amazing!

I thought Em was so sweet and easy-going in Deacon and Mal's story, but you get a greater understanding of his full personality and his insecurities in Free Spirit. Tate, too, was a great character and I loved his personal growth story quite a bit. Together they were so sweet and supportive of each other.
I am really looking forward to Connor's story. And hopefully Nolan's as well (fingers crossed).
