On the other hand, the story moves through some life-changing actions and decisions at lightning speed, and I almost stopped reading at one point that seemed a bit disconnected from reality to me. To the author's credit, this "too soon" development then becomes an important theme throughout the rest of the story, so overall the emotional reactions eventually seemed relatively real and realistic.
Still, given such a weighty subject, it remains a somewhat brief male/male romance, with sudden heated scenes and the HEA required in the genre. In the end the speed of events (emotional and also perhaps physical) still seemed somewhat unrealistically quick to me and the ending a bit pat, so a solid, high four star "really good" read for me (rather than being blown away with five stars).
The other major flaw is a weak ending, and a boring epilogue.
I'm not disappointed only because I'm a writer. Every book I read teaches me how to write better stories. If you're looking for wisdom in this tale that isn't found nearly everywhere these topics are dealt with, you may be disappointed.
Fun story: Woke up this morning and found myself literally stuck in bed. I had been sleeping on one end of the blanket and the dog was sleeping on the other end of the blanket in a way that I was almost in a cocoon. Somehow managed to get my hands out and since it was rather difficult (and I didn't particularly want to) to move, I decided to read a bit. This book was just lying there on my Kindle, waiting to be read... and here I am, several hours later with a book that had a pretty awesome premise, but unfortunately with a somewhat lacking execution.
There were parts of this book that I quite enjoyed, but I have to admit that most of the time I was left wondering WHY on earth did Jay marry his wife Misty in the first place and why should anyone care who you're interested in as long as the relationships you're in are consensual and between people of sound mind. No-one forced him to marry Misty, did they? Jay seemed to have a lot (and I mean A LOT) of guilt for not telling his wife that he'd like to separate and he's actually into guys. He seemed to have even more guilt for not telling his family that he's actually not interested in women. All in all, a ton of guilt and angst...
Maybe I'm the wrong person to say this, but no-one should ever worry whether their family accepts them or not for who they are attracted to in the first place. As long as these relationships are between adults of sound mind, that is. I don't think anyone should ever worry whether their parents accept them for liking someone of the opposite sex or someone of the same sex or multiple someones. The family is supposed to support you no matter what and yes, I know, a lot of people are bigoted and that's why it is difficult for some to get out of the closet, so to speak, but frankly why does it matter if it's two (or more) men or two women or a man and a woman in a relationship? And I guess that's one of the reason's why I really loved the protagonist's sister so much. There's not much of her, but she seemed to share my point of view here and frankly, Jay ought to talk more with his sister.
I would recommend this book if you're in the mood for some angst. If you're looking for something lighthearted and fun, I don't think this is really it...
Jay and Scott start talking and discover they have a lot in common. They become friends and eventually lovers, but will Jay's guilt tear them apart?
The 1st few chapters were good, then the book stalled. At about the 1/2 way point when I was getting bored and thinking of closing the book, it picked up after that it held me captive until the last page.
These guys are good together. They had good chemistry. They were just sweet together. There wasn't much sex, but what was there was not only hot, but loving. You felt the love from these two. It ended perfectly.
It was painful and then it was raw and then it was love.
It ends beautifully but I think it'd be a while before i find it in my heart to read this again ^^
