ROMANCE: M/M Romance. Age Gap (17 years). Boss/Mentor. Falling for friend's son.
What a great intro to a new series and I really loved both Jericho and Poe. This was so character driven with just the right amount of drama weaved perfectly with character growth. Since this was co-written, I'll just say that it was very smooth and didn't feel like two people were writing this.
Poe Montgomery: Graffiti is the most important thing in Poe's life and the only thing he's ever really stuck with. But when his Dad pushes him into working at the tattoo show owned by his Dad's friend he finds a new passion. But Poe is only 23 years old and this is the first time he's ever been truly challenged to accomplish something meaningful.
Jericho McAslan: A rough childhood and some brushes with the law almost ruined Jericho, but a tattoo artist took a chance on him and turned his life around. Now he has the chance to pay it forward with his friend's son -- if only he could keep his inappropriate thoughts to himself!
-- Jericho was a great character and I enjoyed his maturity (he's 40) and how settled he is in his life. That being said, he's by no means boring -- talk about a silver fox!-- and even he gets some character growth as he finds his happiness. I also liked that he genuinely wanted to help turn Poe's life around because he knows what it's like to be at a turning point.
-- Poe had some of the best growth I've read for a character in a long time! When we meet him, he's immature, unfocused, and his only passion is graffiti, regardless of who he might be hurting by doing it. Even with all that going on he's still a really endearing character. As he finds his focus with tattooing and begins his relationship with Jericho we see a whole new Poe who wants to have a life he can be proud of. Poe proves his growth in the beautiful scene towards the end when Jericho is questioning Poe about Blue's actions. The old Poe would have stormed out with a fit from the beginning but the new, grown up Poe faces things head on no matter how heartbreaking they are.
-- The daddy/boy kink is new to me and for the most part not my thing, but I can't deny the chemistry and fireworks between these two. Gale and Vaughn can really steam up the pages!
-- I wasn't too crazy about Blue's character and I have a feeling we'll be seeing more of him and possibly have his story at some point in this series. I don't mind a redemption story and it's clear that Blue has some dark history that he needs to work through. He wasn't a terrible guy, I just really wasn't happy with his actions toward Jericho.
Poe and Jericho aren't the most relatable characters, at least to me. Poe isn't even that like-able at the beginning. But bit by bit we get to know and care for the two men. You have to admire writing that can make unfamiliar or even unlikable characters feel real and authentic. You'll most likely be rooting for the two characters by the end.
The author also keeps us guessing about the key dramatic turn of the plot. There are several possibilities in the story line, and it took so long coming that I was beginning to think this would be a story without much drama. When it came, though, the drama was entirely believable, and you really didn't know at the point whether the relationship would survive it or not.
Although billed as the first book in a series, the story of Poe and Jericho feels complete as-is, so I suspect future books will focus on different characters. There are two secondary men in this book that it seems could have a story of their own, which would be in keeping with the series. Based on this initial book, future installments will probably be reviewed as well.
Landon was the best! Hopefully there is more on him in the next book. Same goes for Blue and Cal!
