Setting that aside I liked the story. It was deep and the characters well-developed. The mystery a little vague.
All in all it shows the wide range of characters that Sean Micahel can tackle, including a three year old girl.
Also the sex is light for Sean, but I've read that before in his novels. He is very good at his variety and spiciness of his novels.
Anyway, Sean Michael lost a star due to Josie's awful dialogue. (Perhaps 3 year old talk that way, but I don't think it worked in this novel.
- Brock is a lovely specimen of Knight in Shining Armor. He has not only the desire to give Eric everything he could possibly want, but also the means to do so.
- I liked the way Eric tells Brock so matter-of-factly that Brock is the love of his life.
- There's probably an average amount of sex here, as far as m/m novels go. As far as Sean Michael novels in particular go, there's practically no sex. In fact, I've never read a Michael book so sparse in this area. (The reason I put this in the "pros" list is that Michael has finally shown me that s/he can write a book with more going on in it besides sex every third page.) (see cons below also)
- Some of the things pertaining to Eric's 3-year-old daughter, Josie, are cute--namely, a few of her reactions and comments, the way Eric is so whipped over her, and the way she brings out the protective Papa Bear in Brock. (see cons also)
- The first sex scene is well over 100 pages in, and usually I'm all for a slow build-up. I was frustrated with this story, though, because there's just not a whole lot of actual building up. The majority of the first 120 pages or so concerns Josie just as much as, if not more than, Brock and Eric's relationship. We're told that Brock wants Eric, so it's not like I felt the guys were indifferent toward each other; I just never sensed that all-encompassing passion or the constant burn of being around someone you want all the time.
- When the men see each other and communicate for the first time after a 9-year separation, there's no bitterness or anger or even much sadness/regret. I expected the re-establishing of contact to be a little more gut-wrenching, but they're both so...MELLOW about the situation, and that didn't ring true to me considering I was reading about 2 guys still very much in love with each other.
- I found Josie a little annoying at times. Part of my problem, I'm sure, is that my only real experience with kids that age is a group of 2-4 year olds at a Montessori school. Most of those children are gifted, so they're much more coherent and grammatically correct than Josie is in this story. She might very well be an accurate portrayal of an average 3-year-old, though.
Overall comments: This is the least Sean-Michael-like Sean Michael book I've ever read. I think the relationship is more central than the plot, as is the case in most other Michael books I've read, but the relationship in this book is not so much a strict romance as it is the development of a family. Not NEAR as much sex as I'm used to seeing from this author, and not for you if you find children annoying. Josie is a huge part of this story.
