The plot of the story starts out simple enough, and kind of has a snowball effect through the arc. Rather than overpowering the primary idea that this man has lost a child, which is pivotal in my opinion, the secondary dilemma adds to the complexity of the characters and keeps the story going. In truth, the book could be split into two arcs, but the overall theme is one of two people finding one another, coming to terms with loss, and accepting that maybe the path they had set for themselves had a branch that was better for their heart. The characters were endearing and I'd happily read a sequel if Mr. Grey decides to continue their story.
It's sad and sweet, then exciting and busy, then soft and gentle.....
Cory is alone and greiving the loss of his best friend and soon to be son, Brad is a new journalist for the local paper looking for a story. Brad interviews Cory, and a spark happens between them. Brad gets his story and eventually a boyfriend. Plus some trouble!
I enjoyed the story overall, Andrew is a fantastic storyteller, and this is a good story. My only issue was that I didn't really like Cory as much as I could have. He was a bit spoiled and I'm not sure what, snotty isn't the right word... I really liked Brad, he's young and trying, getting himself in to trouble he wasn't expecting, just trying to get a break and a good story. I think he had to work harder to get what he had. Cory was the golden child, ahead in school, quick to go to medical school, great job, perfect family, etc. His only issue is a big one, the loss of Eileen his best friend and her baby who Cory was set to adopt. He should be greiving, and he does, but it's almost a bit exagerated. He seems to go in to this potential relationship with only his own needs in mind. There is a potential job change for him, he doesn't really think about Brad. It is a potential job only, he has a point, but I wanted him to want Brad more. Brad is a sweetie and I feel he needed a bit more from Cory. When it goes south for Brad, Cory is there, in a BIG way, and comes through. So he eventually gets a clue and steps up. He did grow on me, I came to like him by the end, so it wan't a big issue, and not Andrew's fault I didn't like Cory. I can love a book and not like everyone in it, it's ok!
The writing was great, Andrew continues to improve in his storytelling. The characters were well developed, having their own histories and background. Cory's family was big, loud, and involved, seeming to really care about him. Brad the only child, seems overwhelmed. I would like another visit with these boys to see how Brad has adjusted to the large family. Especially considering the ending, which I won't give away! Brad's folks show up when needed and seem sweet, again another look at them would be fun as well.
The big bad story Brad worked on worked for me as part of this story, seemed realistic and well thought out. As did his initial story that involved Cory, and the follow up. I liked the addition of some negativity from outside sources, it made the story seem more real to me. Not everyone would be happy with what Brad wrote.
Anyway, It was a very good story, well written, good plot, good characters, good sex, and one hell of a fantastic happy ending!
The dynamics with the family members were wonderful, with the interaction with the siblings and the parents coming off very real and genuine. The hospital-scene (when Brad was unconscious after the shooting) was very touching. I could feel for Cory's anxiety. I highly recommend this book. Great reading!!!
Thank you, Andrew, for a good book. You did it again!
