Part of it was that Charlie was a bit of a non-entity. Nice, hot, barely got angry, forgave everything instantly. He was kind of bland and annoyingly blase about Ethan's job. Even after Ethan has a horrible angry rant including the phrase "I'm not a Sarah Lawrence undergraduate, I'm not going to cry remorse rape" (ugh). Charlie gets cross, says one thing, then just smiles and accepts a weak apology an hour later.
I also struggled with the idea that Ethan, someone supposedly left wing, would so easily justify working for a Fox News type entity, to the extent he wants to renew his contract, as though there would be no other job opportunities for him in New York. His internal conflict is kind of mentioned but it was really a lost opportunity to explore that too.
Also the supposed reason for his staying in the awful job was for the best of his daughter but at the end he makes a lot of decisions that seemed a little selfish.
The sex scenes were also a bit annoying - I don't want gritty realism but they were a bit more than I could suspend disbelief for.
There were some good supporting characters, and it was well written, but there was so much opportunity for conflict and tension that was just missed entirely. It ended up being boring and I was not at all invested in Charlie or Ethan and didn't really have a sense of who they were as people.
Skip this one.
With her latest release Misinformation, I was left with a bit of a void.
We meet Ethan Daniels; he's a Philly transplant that's recently moved to NYC after a divorce. Ethan makes the change due to his ex-wife moving to NYC with their daughter, Fiona. Being a good dad, he wants to stay close to his little girl. Ethan, a TV journalist, takes a job with ECHO News. Think of ECHO as a Fox News equivalent. Are you cringing yet? Yeah, well Ethan is too. The money is too good to pass up, so he sells his soul and goes through the motions reporting. His views are not aligned with ECHO, but he tries his best to offer fair commentary despite the awful stories he's tasked with covering.
He accompanies his ex-wife to his daughter's open house and comes face to face with Charlie Woods, his daughter's first-grade teacher. Well, it isn't the first time that Ethan's laid eyes on Charlie. He first noticed him when he dropped Fiona off at school before the open house. Okay, this story is sounding pretty good, right? You totally know where this is going.
So Ethan who is more than a little bi-curious gets drunk while moping about at a neighborhood bar. Charlie happens to end up at the same bar and well... I'll leave the rest to your imagination.
This setup for the story was fab! I was totally pumped to see how these two gents tackle their romance. An ex-wife, a conservative news network, getting it on with your daughter's teacher! So many elements at play it was bound to be juicy right? Not necessarily. Something was missing for me. I felt completely disconnected with Ethan and Charlie as a couple. At some points with the dialogue between them I was cooing and rooting for them, other parts I was cringing, and then I started to dislike Ethan. I get being confused about this new aspect of yourself you're discovering but holy moly I wanted to shake the s*** out of him. Then I felt bad for Charlie but then I was like wait; this guy kind of set himself up for failure. I wasn't sold on the connection between the characters. At times, the writing felt disjointed. Like I'd be reading one paragraph and immediately following we're already in the next day and onto something new. No lead-ins just BAM with the transition. It was odd.
Again, I've read Ms. Ellis's work before, and I was a bit surprised by this. This story had some excellent aspects, but I was left unfulfilled with the execution. This was simply an okay read for me.

As they both fight to deny their attraction and Ethan’s situation at work gets more perilous if any scandal be disclosed, the reader gets a glimpse of just how difficult it is to remain “closeted” in the public eye. I wanted to scream at Ethan’s boss for being so bigoted, pushing him to “get a girlfriend” to improve his public image. Although Charlie did not want to be Ethan’s “secret” he couldn’t deny himself the pleasure of showing Ethan how good it would be to explore his deep sexual cravings.
“Doesn’t matter how I like things to be,” Charlie said. “They are what they are. I can’t keep running away just because something makes me uncomfortable. I want to be with you, so we’ll just have to figure out how to make it happen. Right?”
The best part of the story is when Ethan has to interview the head of the Christian Values League and author of the book "Along Straight Paths: Raising Real Boys in a Godless World". The story they were doing was on the recent push by several states to outlaw so-called gay conversion camps. I will not spoil what Ethan does, but you will stand up and applaud him! How does this story end? Does Ethan and Charlie get their hard fought HEA? 1-click this romantic M/M love story by the talented Keelan Ellis!
