Now that Russ and Stephen have really found a balance with their differences - financially and age-gap, the two continue to deepen their relationship through this book. They're pretty settled, but now have to deal with Stephen's ex-boyfriend, settling the past for them both, and the question of marriage that suddenly appeals to Russ.
I love these two in this book so much. They're so much more on the same page of things, and I love reading about established couples in the "what's next" part after the initial HEA. Russ and Stephen have such great chemistry and love together, and I love them continuing to build on that after the first book.
Now I need to go re-read Evan and Jeremy's story, which is a spin-off from this series. And I'm SO SO happy to know that the 3rd book - which is entirely NEW - is coming this fall!
For fans of age gap romance, with great characters and family matters, I definitely recommend this series. It's one of my favorites written from this author.
Russ and Stephen are just as yummy as they were 5 years ago(Holy Hannah Batman has it been 5 years since I finished their journey?). There is just so much goodness in this pair that makes them not only fun to read but realistic too. Considering the area I live in I doubt I'd meet them next door but I certainly feel like I could meet them for lunch at the local restaurant or pumping gas and I always love having that possible connection to a book character, it just helps me fall that much harder.
Now, if you are new to Peachtree and hadn't read Brigham Vaughn's original released Equals series, this is a journey that must be read in order. If you are like me and read Equals before, trust me you'll love Russ & Stephen even more the second time around.

Original Review April 2015:
This was a perfect addition to the Equals series and the love story of Russ and Stephen. I've been wondering about that box that Miss Esther gave Stephen from his father's things. I loved finally getting to meet Russ' family too. I won't lie, there was some dread I was fearing when faced with Addison meeting Stephen considering the way their aunt had raised her but it worked out even better than I expected. Such a lovely and beautifully written Christmas story. I look forward to more of Russ and Stephen, hint, hint Miss Vaughn.
Original Review April 2015:
I don't even know where to begin. Russ and Stephen had me from their first spilled coffee and being able to see their relationship grow, mature, and evolve has been a joy and has earned a prominent spot in my personal library. Brigham Vaughn has a way with the written word, she conveys so much emotion and detail with a relatively limited number of words. I'll admit that there are moments that I would sit and imagine what was going on between the pages, yes they would have added to the story but truth is that there is nothing lacking from Russ and Stephen's story without those moments. Sometimes, readers need to read certain points and others you just need to imagine and for me, Miss Vaughn has given us a perfect blend of visual and imagined nuggets.
Husbands is a perfect conclusion to this couple's tale, I can't say "ending" because that elicits too much sadness but it definitely wraps this romance up in a neat little bow. Now, having said that, it's not a sugary sweet, no problems kind of ride, the bumps are there and one bump is Jeremy, Stephen's ex. I was glad that we finally got to meet Jeremy and his part is not the cliche "ex wants back in". Calling Jeremy a "bump" is not giving him the credit he deserves on my part but there are some tense moments, even if it's mostly inner monologue. Yep, if you have been following Russ and Stephen's story, you just can't miss Husbands. And if you haven't read the Equals series, well, what are you doing sitting here reading my review, check it out because you won't regret it. I can't wait to see what the mind of Brigham Vaughn brings next.
At the office party, listening to Peter, his co-worker, talk about his Christmas plans, trying to juggle ex-spouses, children, and all that stuff so no one gets offended, Stephen was glad to be gay since he didn’t have to navigate the pitfalls of marriage, divorce, and children.
Ever since Stephen’s dad died, Russ has been thinking about family. He wants a better relationship with his dad and sister. He wants them to see him as an adult now and in a good relationship. But Russ also wants more than what they have now; he wants forever with Stephen. To him, forever is a committed marriage, but for Stephen that has never been an option for his consideration. With marriage equality not recognized in Georgia, he sees no point in wanting what he can't have. And when Stephen’s ex re-appears in his life, Stephen and Russ will have to decide once and for all if they’re ready to commit to a lifetime together.
This was such a good book with so much going on. It seemed that everyone had some sort of issue to deal with, but it was handled well and led to clarity and acceptance most of the time. I liked the characters, some more than others, but enough to care about them all. Grab your copy and see how it all works out when each one deals with their issues and find an acceptable course of action.
