Coming out is hard. Harder when you have a close minded family you want to impress. One chance meeting, that is hot as heck, and courage come from within an from a new family.
I feel for Matthias, I didnt hate him before but I didnt like him and as Abrianna Deane put out teasers for this book I grew to love him. I dont love him as much as Rhys, but I get him.
This book also gives us further insight into Neil. All we really knew about him was that he was Rhys’ and Jamie’s assistant who tried too hard. I was intrigued by the author’s decision to pair Matthias and Neil. I didn’t see that coming.
After seeing him alone, at the bar, several times, something tugs Neil to approach Matthias. They were complete strangers. Neil discovered that Matthias was DEEEEP in the closet. Despite the fact that he avoids closet cases, Neil can’t help it; he’s inexplicably drawn to him, and Matthias is desperate and lonely enough to accept it.
Matthias is not an easy man. He is full of anger, resentment, self-loathing, regret, and despair. He wants to change, wants it all to stop, but he doesn’t know how. His head is so full of the bigotry he hid behind, that it takes a long time for them to make headway. Slowly it happens, though. It’s going to be a tough road, and Matthias has no idea why Neil is so nice to him, but he is truly grateful.
I wanted to punch Jamie’s and Matthias’ mother so many times. I was giddy when Matthias finally started standing up to her. He wasn’t going to be her lackey anymore. He didn’t want to deprive Jamie of his well-deserved happiness and new family.
Redemption is not easily obtained, and it’s definitely not easy for Matthias. He did some really heinous things he will regret for the rest of his life, e.g. Alex’s problems with his hand and wrist. Matthias wants to be better and part of that is by trying to fix what he broke. It’s a gamble, because he did a lot of damage and he doesn’t know if he’ll get the chance to mend his relationship with Jamie. Jamie could say no.
Mending his relationship with Jamie is not his only hurdle. He has to figure out how to not only allow himself to be the person he really is, but to love himself, too. That is probably the toughest battle. Self-loathing is a mean beast.
This is the third book in the Stories series, and it should be read in order. The author recommends reading at least book 1, but I feel like it would be really beneficial to read book 1 and 2 before this one. It will give you a true sense of every character that’s involved in this book, and a broader perspective. Plus, this is a really great series. So, why not read them all? These books are ones everyone should read at least once. It is very thought-provoking and relatable on a basic human level. I can’t recommend it enough.

It was clear from the beginning that something was just not..okay... with Matthias. We got further hints on book two and we finally get to the heart of the matter in book three. Matthias, in his own way, is just as damaged as Jamie. That family - WOW! Marta needs a really good b!+ch s|@p!
Neil has exactly had it easy, but he certainly knows he has worth and that he is loved by both family and found family. It's a beautiful thing!
As with the first two books, we skip between both POV and time frame. If you've read book one & two (and you really should, first) them you've encountered this before. Go with the flow - it gets easier, lol.
There are still some issues with editing/proofreading, but not nearly as much. Yay!
I HOPE we get a chance at Bas' story.
**Warning** As with the first two books, please pay attention to trigger warnings. There are difficulties ahead.
