I will say this, although you can read this book as a stand-alone from the series, I definitely recommend starting from the beginning. And I mean going all the way back to the salon that brought them all together....Curl Up & Dye. Trust me. TOTALLY worth your time and money to invest in this crazy little town.
Jonathan Silver is a retired operative for the US military. He found out about his twin brother Nate from his dying mother. He tracked Nate down and only had 9 months to bond with him, when Nate was killed. He comes to know Gabe through the investigation and is soon coming to Josh and Gabe's Sunday dinners.
Emory has had a dream vision of him and Jon being happy together and does everything he can to change the end result. Only haircuts and avoidance can't change the inevitable. Jon is leary of a forever love but more open to it than Emory. They eventually come together but the road is rocky. Emory helps a cold case involving Jon's ex-military friend Beau, that's obviously close to Beau but it's not revealed yet. Jon's other ex-military friend Corbin runs a S&M club and he's a little more jaded in the love dept. He's a source of support to Jon. At the end of the book he tell Jon he's going dark for awhile. I'm hoping we get to read Beau and Corbin's stories.
Emory's mother is the typical social climbing snob who plays emotional games with him. It was written in a way that made me not like her but not hate her either. I just felt bad that Emory had to grow up with that. Emory's cousin/best friend Memphis is a great support to Emory and I'm really looking forward to reading his story as well. Emory's grandfather makes a short but lasting appearance in Emory's time of need. Emory faces a big challenge with all the friends from Blissville to support him.
This book had great chemistry between all the characters. You could feel the struggle in Emory and his eventual acceptance. There is a dream vision of Emory and River at the park, on a bench, that had me crying. It's very cathartic and definitely needed. The sex was hot at times and loving at others. Great story written very well. No obvious grammar errors or misspellings. I will definitely read this book again and would recommend it to anyone who loves M/M romance.
The first part of this book are events we saw unfolding in other books by this author, specifically the Curl up and Dye mysteries. But in this one, we see things from the perspective of these two characters. At times, I felt irritated because I already knew so many of these details. But still, I was desperate to see a happy resolution for Emory and Jon, so I had to keep reading. I love these guys and they deserve to be happy! When these two finally connect on a physical level, it is EXPLOSIVE. Incendiary! Wheeee. This was another highly entertaining, engaging novel, like all the books from this author.
Aimee Nicole Walker is one of my favorite authors and this series is just amazing. Of course, it was great that we got to see all of the characters from Blissville, including the amazing Josh and Gabe (Curl Up and Dye series).
We were introduced to new characters that I hope get their own stories. So with that said, I can't wait to see who is going to get their story next........I'm hoping for Corbin (hint hint). This series is amazing!
In this book we finally we get to hear Jon and Emory’s story. In the first few pages, Aimee took my heart and broke it when she told us Emory’s backstory through his own words. It’s heartbreaking to read but knowing Aimee would mend my heart, I trudged on.
If you read the Curl Up and Dye series, some of the early scenes were covered in those books but in this one we get the perspective of the two main MCs, Emory and Jon. This book is more about a slow burn as Emory and Jon work through their pasts but once they connect the sex is both scorching hot and, at times, sweet. Jon is perfect for Emory, he allows him to feel again. While Emory is perfect for Jon, allowing him to realize that he is worthy of love.
