I liked how Josh agreed to their reuniting as friend after a year has passed from their non relationship( friends with benefits), and the slow but sure way these 2 fell in love.
The second reunion at about 95% showered how much birth of these men have grown.
Groveling at its finest. Finn! His explanation for the gift he gives Josh was stuff romance is last of.
Lane Hayes knows the human heart as well as human nature, the need to protect that heart from what it needs most.
I highly recommend Leaning Into Touch. It's timely, relevant yet not preachy.
I am looking forward to Grant's story. It was also nice seeing all the Leaning Into guys.😘😍🤗
Sweet and spicy second chance romance. I like how Josh wasn’t going to be an afterthought to Finn. I liked how Josh matured through the book. Really great romance!!
Finn was a hard character for me to get my head around, on the surface he was all Irish and charm and sexy swagger, but he kept hurting Josh, never deliberately mind, and it was easy to see that he was running so scared.
But Josh is such an open and cheery and optimistic person that every time Finn crushed his heart, albeit at Josh’s own doing for leaving himself vulnerable, I struggled for a short while to get back in Finn’s corner.
Eventually though, with the innate talent she has for unravelling all the threads and sewing up all the missing pieces, Lane lets Josh see that the saying is true – if you love something, you have to let it go.
And he does, or rather he lets Finn run away again and doesn’t fight against the tide. But this time Finn’s realised the long held onto guilt for mistakes he made as a young man no longer have to weigh him down.
The final (and perfectly gorgeous), reunion, which happens at almost 95% in this book (!!), is an exercise in how to let one man know he is really the centre of your world and you can’t live without him, even though it would be less scary to do so.
Finn and Josh’s relationship doesn’t fit into a trope easily, there’s elements of friends to lovers, there’s a smidgen of angry sex (and oh boy is their sex good!), there’s an element of second chances, a bit of bad boy and slightly naive lover about it all, but at its heart it’s about taking chances.
The attraction is still there and though Josh isn’t going to sleep with Finn, despite the Irish brogue and the beauty and the charm, because he knows it will lead nowhere just like last time, of course he does. It’s sort of a pet peeve of mine when people are repeatedly telling themselves what a bad idea it is and then are lead astray by their libido. So when he repeatedly was sleeping with Finn while telling himself why it was a bad idea it made me want to shake him. Falling in lust is easy, but being in love with someone who can’t love you back is horrible. That’s where Josh is.
To be honest, as I was reading this I kept thinking “I’m not loving him (Finn).” Add in that Finn is engaged to his friend, Scarlet. Is it a real engagement? Nope, but it’s public and it’s being talked about and includes an engagement party. Even when the chance comes to fess up, it doesn’t happen. So I was getting irritated with the whole thing. Of course, I would have liked it anyway because of Josh. He is so optimistic, so sweet and sometimes, just so funny.
It is when Finn sets him up for a job interview with his friend, Dante, at an art gallery that you start to see how far in the closet Finn really is. I was sad for him and even sadder for Josh. While I was so irritated with Finn’s actions, when I was done reading I realized how Finn’s actions made sense for him and how much it took for him to make any changes.
Josh is also going through a big life change for his father, one that takes him by surprise and that he doesn’t handle well. Then he feels guilty about not handling it well. Josh just has so much going on. Josh’s parents are wonderful and you read them and see why Josh is the optimistic sweetheart that he is. Mom’s baking to combat stress? Epic!
One thing I definitely appreciated is this author made Finn’s groveling seem real. There was no “so sorry, now let’s have magical sex that solves our problems”. These guys went through some pain. “You’re managing these loose strings so you can walk away with as little guilt as possible.”
This was a worthy installment to the Leaning series and I can’t wait, seriously can not wait, for Grant’s story. (hint…)
