This book is about Chris and I've been waiting for his story. He's the friend and housemate of Tom, who was one of the main characters in Tread the Boards. Chris is an artist and his artwork is selling well. He has a comfortable life but no one special to share it with. He also has a secret…
Frank works at SHS as a scaffolder. His long-time girlfriend has just broken up with him and he has mixed feelings about that. Frank has always been curious about being with a man and he feels like now is the perfect time to explore those feelings.
When Frank and Chris meet they hit it off right from the start but Frank is skittish and the timing is bad for him to start a new relationship. When they meet again, several months later, Frank hopes that Chris will give him a second chance but when he does, Frank botches things in a really bad way.
I love how "British" this book is. It's been several months since I've read Friends with Benefits, book 5 in this series, and I haven't read many other books since then that are set in the UK. Ms. Perry has unique way (at least to me since I'm a U.S. gal, born and raised) of writing that challenges me to look things up and enrich my vocabulary. I mean this as a sincere compliment. It's good for me to have different types of things to read and this series about hunky construction workers finding love in unexpected ways is one that I have very much enjoyed reading.
There are many somber moments in this book but there are also many light-hearted places and lots of teasing among friends. I always enjoy a story that engages all of my feelings and The Glass Ceiling did that. I don't know if Ms. Perry has any other books planned for this series but I'm not quite ready to leave this group of guys behind just yet so I hope she does.
I was given an ARC to review by the author.
This is about Chris and Frank. They've both had some bad relationships and are keeping a few secrets for when they know each other a little better.
Frank was dumped by his girlfriend after ten years. Shy Frank can't deal with getting in bed with a man yet. Poor thing has a lot to learn, and he's hurting Chris doing it. Their desire for each other is steaming hot.
Chris has baggage of his own. Frank has more tough stuff heaped on him to learn about. He'll have a well-rounded gay education when he gets a grip on things.
I liked the guys being willing to try to talk things out even if it's a hard conversation. Their friends support them no matter what, and the book tells both sides of the story. The book is easy to read, and the main characters have some good friends helping the guys out. I love this series.
Frank screwed up his chances a few times but nobody's perfect and his hesitation about publicly embracing his bisexuality was understandable. He's lucky that Chris is a really great guy who can sympathize with his hang-ups and help him work through them. I liked both characters and was rooting for their HEA. The HIV line to the plot was informative for those readers who, like Frank, aren't current on the state of HIV treatment science.
I had never read any of the previous books in the series and did not find it terribly difficult to keep all of the characters straight (no pun intended) in my mind. With all of those ripped builders and their hot friends, I just may have to seek out some of the earlier stories! Overall, the book was well-written, though the ending was abrupt.
I received a complimentary advance copy of this book from the author; this is my voluntary and honest review.

Liked both characters but want to feel more emotion as I read. I felt there was more I wanted from this read.Read more
