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+
ETA - I checked the blurb again - nope, no mention of kids. I will say that the children themselves aren't very involved in the plot (I can't even recall their names), but the issues they create are central to the plot. Also, thinking more about Ev - his attitude toward sex also bugged me. "Let me be dominant and talk dirty to you, but OH MY GOD DON'T LET ANYONE'S ANYTHING TOUCH AN A$$ HOLE, IT'S SO DIRTY AND MESSY." I dunno, I felt bad that Brady had to do his own thing to get what he needed sexually.
Knit Tight was an easy good read, but I just wasn’t in love with it – which is a shame.
Brady & Evren relationship started off on a bad foot with Evren totally dismissing Brady once he learns he is bisexual which totally started me with bad feelings towards him and his attitude, after all love is love and it doesn’t matter what body parts a person has – an attraction is an attraction.
Then there was the whole both two busy for a relationship because they are both looking after people needing their full attention.
Brady sister was a big no no for me unfortunately, I was hoping she would redeem herself and bring something to the story but I feel like she could of been cut out and the story would of still moved on at the same pace, ya know? The other kids were cute, and I felt like Brady done an awesome job in raising them.
Evren’s ramblings were fun, I enjoyed reading his inside thoughts through the terms of Knitting and I absolutely adored his aunt.
Although, M/M romance don’t necessarily need to be full of sex, I found this book a bit of a let down when it comes to the steam/heat department – that could be down to Evren not like anal sex, however I felt Brady just being A-Okay with it abit meh…
All in all, a good quick story – I just felt it was lacking in that bit of Ooomph.
