FOUR & A HALF STARS--When you see Mercy Celeste as the author of a story, you should expect:
1) hot sexy Southern men (I adore!)
2) angst up the ying yang, where you are taken for a ride on an emotional roller coaster
3) dirty talking fun ;P
4)heart pacing, steamy sex (with some form of biting - I love that) :D
"Six Ways From Sunday" had all four of those qualities in spades. And for less than 90 pages, the ride is a fun, sad but most importantly memorable one.
Bowen and Dylan have been best friends forever in a steamy Florida town. We are introduced to Bowen learning his best friend and secret crush has enlisted in the Marines...and Bowen's on his way to college football and future NFL greatness. But what both young men admit to each other that day is a love that deepens through out the years.
They are separated for over six years, Bowen continues achieving NFL Superbowl heights and Dylan is no slouch in the Marine department either. Can these first loves withstand the separation, military life, the NFL (an entity within itself), being gay, etc.?
Oh boy, do they!! The amount of passion these two men carry for one another...let's just say it comes across quite eloquently within the tale. When these two meet again after all those years and can only share their bodies and hearts for just a week? *sigh* My cheeks still hurt from grinning so much.
And remember me mentioning that emotional roller coaster Mercy Celeste does so well? She's done it again to the point where you think there can be no light at the end of the tunnel. My heart flopped out of my chest and was making sad faces on the floor. But Celeste was able to put it back in and I can function again. Yes, there is a HEA, don't frown and think the worst, folks.
As a MM romance reader, you can pretty much expect HEA for an ending (HFN the less attractive brother is also accepted) What makes for a great author, in my opinion, is one who can twist you up, spit you out and put you together again while still making you believe in the power of love. I mean, that is the reason we read these stories, right?
Well Mercy Celeste has that in spades. In fact, she's done it again. I'm going to go rehash some of my favorite parts. Give this story a try, you will at the least be entertained, at the most, loving Dylan and Bowen.
It started out ok, but nothing too exciting, high school boys, big strapping football players, fooling around on the floor in Dylan's house for the first time. Homophobic parents, blah blah. Dylan joins the Marine Corp, Bowen goes to college and on to the NFL. An ok story, not bad, but no real surprise. Six years passes, at the Super Bowl they reunite. That was unique, caught my interest quick! Then we had some hot sex between them, which was great! A bit of drama, a tattoo, and a seperation....
Then it all changes. I won't spoil it here, but wow. Drama, pain, made me cry, I was a little concerned how it was going to end, and there it was.... The payoff! Happy, happy! Great ending, great story!
This story had a great message, true love lasts and pays off in the end. Hold true, believe, and survive. I'm not sure how realistic it was as far as Bo's acceptance by his NFL team mates and team staff, I would hope that would happen, but I'm not confident that it will anytime soon.
Overall this was an enjoyable book, I'll read the next one and look for more from this author!
Well now that I am finished I just want to start again. Mercy does it yet again with her characters that steal my heart and take it thru the wringer with them. I love reading her stories and can't wait for the next one...
SWFS just makes me believe even more in the concept that marriage should be about love not gender. Just read it I loved it and if you loved it check out her back catalogue, I have loved getting lost in the mind of Mercy....
