Fantastic character building and strong secondary characters, as well. It was a realistic setting and they faced problems that can occur in anyone's world. It was sweet, sexy and sometimes a little sad (beyond chapter one). We catch a glimpse of Carey and Jase, as Jase was a friend of Jeremy's. So a fitting second story and I'm looking very much forward to Loren's book.
After a pretty brutal start to the story (that first chapter is heartbreaking...so that the reader understands just how much Jeremy has gone through), this book settled into a hot, sexy, and by the end...romantic story. I liked it. I recommend it.
And, yes, I know this is a super-short review...but...I'm good with that. It was a good book.
It's not often a book can have me crying my eyes out in the first chapter but that's exactly what happened here.
It's a book about second chances. About hitting rock bottom and finding the strength rebuild your life one step at a time
This book is an emotional roller coaster. Both characters have a hard past and although they are at different stages of the rebuild they worked well together. There were a few misunderstandings and the guys worked hard towards their HEA
It took longer to feel connected to Kai since we didn't have his history, but he was immediately a likable and sympathetic character. I feel like their relationship progression is the unicorn of gay romance. Jeremy kept not knowing what he wanted, but then he reassessed, and changed his behavior accordingly, and they talked about it like G-D grownups!
They had a bump or two along the way, but they were fairly run-of-the-mill relationship stuff. Relevant but manageable, as opposed to overly angsty. I liked the aspect with the kids and how that part of the story wove together with Kai and Jeremy's romance, as well as with their individual stories. Not everything worked out the way I'd hoped, but then some did.
And that's the way of the world, isn't it? We have hard times, same as everyone else. Some people get through it, some people are at the wrong place at the wrong time, some people don't have the support that they need to break free. The point is to be there for those you love, to appreciate them. And to try to make a positive difference in other peoples lives.
With regards to the audio, I'm honestly not sure whether it increased or decreased my enjoyment. I immediately recognized Robert Nieman's voice, as I've listened to him several other times. He was wonderful, for the most part, I enjoyed his tone and his pacing. But I found the sex scenes mildly uncomfortable, and I couldn't tell if it was the writing, the narration, or some combination of the two. I also hate when a book says "Kai had a slight accent", but then the narrator doesn't do an accent. I counted two time when Kai's "accent thickened" and the narrator complied, but it seemed like he didn't feel comfortable. If we had had more information about Kai's background, then maybe he could have done it justice.
