Second book in the Finding Nolan novels. Royce has been in the closet since he was a teen he had been bullied, and shunned from his family. As far as the world is concerned he the hot sexy bass player in the group Finding Nolan. He has had his flings but has never stayed in a relationship with a man for long. Until the day Ava and Royce duck into a coffee shop to escape paparazzi. Besides discovering what an fantastic cup of coffee the Kieran Hudson makes, Royce finds himself attracted to Kieran. Kieran can't believe Royce Lemmi is standing in his mothers store. He loved their music and thought Royce was sexy as hell. When the chance comes for him to be the photographer for a book on Finding Nolan and touring with them. It is just to good to pass up.
If you thought the first book in the series was good. This one just blew me away. I loved the humor. Royce doing the pee-pee dance just cracked me up. Kieran was never in the closet. it wasn't the way he was raised. Royce was afraid of how the world would take it if he came out of the closet. He doesn't want to lose Kieran because of it. But can he work through it and be who Kieran needs him to be. You still get quite a bit of the rest of the band so no withdraws there. Some drama with Derek and his marriage maybe he will get his story. Typical Ava and Blaise conversation. Angel still a manwhore. Doesn't get any better then this .
Royce Lemmi chose to stay in the public toilet closet for fear of rejection. That is the gist of it really. His staying in that proverbial closet did not make him a saint or a virgin either, but relationships were left on the wayside. He looked at Blaise and Ava's happy domesticity and dreamed that someday he may get there too but knew it was simply that: a dream. That is, until he stumbled into a little corner cafe and saw Hudson serving Ava her coffee laced with Nutella.
Hudson is an aspiring photographer and he was really good. To make ends meet and to help out his supportive but quirky artist of a mother, he was also the barrista to her cafe. Looking up into rocker Royce's eyes was a bit of a surprise. What comes out of Ava's mouth was even more for not only did she drop the 'f' words like punctuation marks, she also offered him a job he could not refuse.
As Royce and Hudson pair off, publicly they do their jobs: as guitarist and as band photographer. Privately, well they were getting to know each other and got entangled in a beautiful romance in front of the band members who really were happy for them. The only problem is Royce. He is unwilling to go public with their relationship and Hudson does not want to be the dirty little secret. Hudson had always been out and refuses to go into a closet. Even if it means breaking his heart.
This was a nice romantic read and the drama that brewed between the two men were really not that dramatic compared to what Derek was going through. But that is another story altogether. Romantically, these two men were the perfect fit exempting the closet issue. How Ava, Blaise and the rest of the band members try to make right for the two men made for an amusing but teary read. They were a family and they did what families do best: support each other unconditionally. The difference is that all of them made their own families way back when they were in high school and it is tight. Very tight.
It is this tightness that made this such an inspiring story, especially when Royce had to make a decision and choose whether to remain miserable for the rest of his life alone or to make Hudson his own.
The banter between characters in this story was fantastic, and there was plenty to laugh about. I loved delving further into the Finding Nolan characters, and during Secret Hudson you feel like you're becoming even more ingrained in this family of friends. The addition of Kieran Hudson to the group as an interest for Royce just works so well, and his character complements Royce wonderfully.
As with almost every M/M romance I've read, this story--while funny and witty most of the time--was filled with plenty of emotion, especially given the fact that Royce is not out to anyone but the core Finding Nolan group...while Hudson doesn't hide. That scenario is usually a recipe for disaster at some point, and despite that overwhelming feelings they both have...well, something has to give somewhere.
The story is gripping, emotional, and powerful while still being quite humorous, and it will make you fall for both Royce and Hudson no matter what your gender. They're both insightful characters, which make for some strong feelings and intense scenes, and I have found that, of the first three books of this series, Secret Hudson is far and away my favorite.
5 intense and emotional stars for Secret Hudson, recommended for 18+ due to adult language and topics.
