I do believe this is my new favorite in the family series!!
Jason, a surgeon who only wants a one-night-stand, goes to a bar and meets Abe, a teacher who only does the relationship thing. I really do love when a book takes characters out of their comfort zone and shows how a stranger can make you want to be a better person. This book had little relationship angst and we get to see how clueless some people can be even when they are ridiculously smart!
POV ... third person
Stand alone or series... Book 4 in a series but CAN be read as a stand alone
Would I recommend it ... Yes
Did it give me a book hangover... yes
Would I read it again ... yes
Highly recommended. ENJOY !!!
This was such a wonderfully sweet story. Going into it, I wasn't sure because Jason is set up to be kind of a jerk...well, not really a jerk. He just knows that a long-term relationship isn't for him so he's all about finding a hook-up, having sex, and then getting out. He doesn't plan on Abe.
I love that the first thing that draws Jason to Abe in the club is his laugh. That right there set this up to be so much more than just a sexual relationship between them. It just took a while for Jason to face up to the fact too. Jason was married for 10 years...to a woman back before he accepted the fact he was gay. They got married because she was pregnant, but then divorced when Jason couldn't manage to stay faithful. As a result, he knows relationships aren't for him. Despite the fact that he's gay, he truly loves his ex-wife. They are still really good friends. I love their relationship in the book and how she pushes him about Abe. She can see that he needs Abe in his life, even when Jason doesn't see it. But Jason is driven, temperamental, and pretty much a perfectionist. He expects a lot of himself and knows that he can't live up to those expectations when it comes to relationships. His past has proven that. But despite all that, Abe sneaks into his life and his heart.
Abe...I love him. He's younger and so much more inexperienced, but he learns really quickly that if he wants Jason in his life he needs to "handle" him with kid gloves. I loved that Abe is just as smart as Jason and knows what Jason needs. I also really loved how the author set up Abe's interactions with Jason's kids. It was perfectly executed.
I'll admit that with a series called the "Family" series, I didn't expect this book to be as hot as it was. Wow. I loved the steamy scenes between Jason and Abe. This book was incredibly sexy even though it was all about a family dynamic and making it work in the parameters of this relationship. I loved that about it.
In fact, I really did just love everything about it. The character dynamics were so good and rich with detail. I loved all the people in this book and the way they enhanced the story. Jason's family is incredible...and rich in their flaws, but that makes the story even that much better.
I know...I know...I'm one of the only m/m readers that is just now coming into this series. I see the error of my ways. I will be going back and reading the 3 books before this one, although this one completely and totally works as a stand-alone.
