I loved this story. It's rather bittersweet, with Brady's responsibility as essentially a single parent, and Ev's role as caregiver for his dying aunt (and to be clear, if you are sensitive to the big C in your stories, you should be aware of this subplot) making their romantic forays that much more meaningful. The first stumbling block to them getting together is actually not the lack of time but rather Ev's personal conviction to not get involved with a bisexual, much to Brady's disappointment. That Ev would think that because Brady is bisexual he would not be committed to a relationship with a gay man is hurtful and at first damaging to the tentative steps they've made towards a relationship. Ev's had bad experiences in the past with bisexual lovers, and his fear of getting involved with Brady comes from that background. But he is unable to resist taking the friendship he and Brady are developing further, first with flirtation, and then more when it becomes clear that Brady is willing. The two of them are very compatible sexually, with Ev liking to take a dominant hand in things, and Brady quite happy to let his submissive side out to play, a break from his constant need to be in control at home all the time. Ev has some interesting quirks in the bedroom that amuse Brady, but for the reader, it makes their relationship feel believable. They are definitely hot together once they let down their guards, and the result is some steamy scenes.
Trust is the biggest factor in holding Ev back from opening himself up fully to Brady, and combined with Brady's belief that his siblings would be a drawback to any man wanting a relationship with him, make for a lot of hardships for this couple to overcome. They are both really likable characters, and I loved seeing Ev open himself up to Brady, and in turn show Brady that it's okay to have someone else to lean on. In the end we get a story about two men who take each other's flaws hand in hand with their positive qualities and a reminder that romance can flourish in any situation. 5 stars.
It didn't exactly start out that way--well, it did, and then it veered temporarily into "What the heck?" territory, but by the ending it was back to sweetness. Evren just needed to get his head out of his butt over Brady's being a bisexual and learn to truly let others (mainly, but not strictly limited to, Brady) in to help him with all of the crap that life was sending his way, and then everything was back to feel-good romance land again.
Well, except for the part that made me cry.
But then Brady and Ev were back to making me sigh happily, so... :)
I loved Brady's character--not much of a surprise, since we see the whole book from his point of view (with the exception of the small snippets of Ev's knitting blog which we get at the beginning of every chapter except the first one--loved this device, BTW!). He's got so much on his plate, with his four younger siblings that he's been responsible for since the death of their parents--seven-year-old twin girls, a ten-year old brother, and nineteen-year-old sister who helps up to a point, but who also wants to be a "normal" nineteen-year-old girl. Between work and his family, his dating life has been nonexistent. And then he sees Ev across the busy coffee shop...
Ev's a bit harder to like at times. At first he's all cute and flirty--until he finds out Brady's orientation. He's had bad experiences with two bisexuals, and says he won't chance it again and shuts Brady down. But then he decides friendship is doable, only they both clearly want more...anyway, he's lucky that Brady is patient. And that he really, really likes him. It also doesn't hurt that Ev's so good with kids... ;)
This was my first book from this author, but it won't be my last! Even though it's 4th in the series, Knit Tight worked just fine as a standalone.
Rating: 4 / B+
