The blurb from Michael's POV is slightly more accurate, but again, minus the angst that the blurb alludes to.
Yes, despite what I've just mentioned, I did like the tale, though it was rather low-key and without much in the way of sex scenes. I liked the leads, I liked Michael's kid and his parents, but I did find it a little hard to tie in Dax's job within such a small community where people seemed to know everyone's business. For it not to come up at all wasn't realistic - and that's me in liberal London thinking this, never mind small town America where this tale takes place.
The bit of angst that was introduced? It seemed anti-climactic and a bit redundant, as did the belated mention of the bible, and TBH, it didn't really go anywhere or come across as being really integral to the tale. I think what further irritated me a bit is that at the point where Michael has his eureka! moment and mans up and is about to confront the source of his issue, said source is called Michael, instead of his correct name being used - yes, the 'baddie' underwent a rather confusing name change. I had to go back and re-read whose POV I was in, and who was actually speaking at that point in the tale, as I was rather baffled, and TBH, it was something that a beta/proof reader *should* have fixed,
It is a nice tale and it ends with the start of a HEA.Read more ›
*happy sigh* I do love a good Gay-For-You story and it's been a while since I read one. This book hit all those happy buttons for me.
For Dax, he's starting a new life in the place where his old life ended. He was in a horrific motorcycle accident that he never planned to wake up from. It was his rock bottom moment. But he did wake up from it and it's taken six years to get his life back on track. He's a kindergarten teacher now and when he gets a job offer in the town where he had his horrible accident, he sees it as a sign...even though he's not too sure about small-town life.
For Michael, all he's known is small-town life. He was on his way out, but then a series of catastrophes left him floundering and second-guessing every decision he ever made. Now he's trying desperately to care for a small son who likes to test him at every turn, while maintain his own sanity. He's not doing a very good job at either thing.
When Dax moves to town, he lives three doors down from Michael. As a result, he has a front row seat to all the ways that Michael is failing with his young son, Jagger. Dax has an affinity to small kids and he steps in to offer help and a friendship blossoms between the two.
I really enjoyed the way the story played out. These guys are friends, Michael is not gay. He's not even curious. But love is love and sometimes a romance develops by falling in love with the person not the exterior. I think this is the ultimate love story...one that goes so far beyond the physical. Not that these guys aren't physical, because they are. But that is a by-product of the emotions, not the other way around which is the way that romance normally plays out. And that right there is why I love this trope so much...Read more ›
Triggers: Death, suicidal tendency, homophobic attitudes
I was given this book for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
Yeah for love!
This book had the most adorable child - Jagger was so loving and understanding, nonjudgmental and curious. He was essentially the glue that held this story together.
Michael was kind of a mess. However, those who love him surrounded him and tried their best to help him piece himself back together again, especially for the sake of Jagger. I was saddened by his ability to give up on himself so easily.
Michael's parents were amazing in this story - they were accepting, if not taken a little off guard and they were amazing with Jagger.
Then you have Dex. I liked him right off the bat. Despite what his initial reaction was to his first encounters with Michael and Jagger, he withheld judgment. I found him to be relaxed and honest, which were nice qualities given the situation he found himself in.
When their lives come together, despite the difficulties they both face, I love how they had such a great friendship. Yes, it was almost an insta-relationship, which I am not a huge fan of, but somehow, Johnson was able to pull that off.
The book was somewhat slow in the beginning, but I think that was to establish the friendship. Then you have the middle section, which is a lot of back and forth about feelings and such. I wish that we were able to have a little more development of the characters and their individual relationships, but it was cohesive enough.
Overall, this was a sweet story that both teaches you to never give up and that everyone is deserving of love.
I really hope that Justin and Matt get their story too.
