Previous works of this author were fun and at times unexpectedly insightful, but I am glad Xavier Mayne decided on a more serious approach with this book. That does not mean it is not fun. I had a blast reading this book. It had me smiling, chuckling and laughing out loud. There are wonderful humorous moments and a lot of light-hearted fun, especially in the banter between Arlo and Trent. However, this book is not just a fun fantasy, but takes the exploration of sexuality and gender norms and the relationship between these three well-crafted characters very serious.
The book takes a lot of time to develop the relationships, especially between Arlo and Trent. I would have loved for Cara to have been part of this dynamic earlier, because she is such a fantastic character, but I think every reader will appreciate how open-minded, understanding and all-around wonderful she is and how important her role is in making this whole thing work. Still, I would have enjoyed if the author had spent more time exploring the connection between Cara and Trent, before it became vital for them to hit it off in a big way.
In the beginning we see the budding bromance between Arlo, a stay-at-home dad and Trent, a single dad slowly being crushed by the responsibilities of his fatherhood, even as he tries to do everything right for his son. Both men love their kids and the friendship they form is beautiful and pure. We also see Arlo with his wife and the beautiful trust and love between them. They are perfect for each other and belong together, even if Cara is often gone.
I have to admit that some of the situations in this book made me feel a bit uncomfortable, because the boundaries between these two men really are pushed and broken between these men in a way that takes the term ‘bromance’ to a whole other level. It is the innocence of their affection and the open and fearless way all three characters respond to it that made it work for me.
So often there are books filled with idiotic and unnecessary misunderstandings that artificially drive a wedge between characters. It was really refreshing to have characters communicate openly with each other. I enjoyed it so much! In the end, given how much certain boundaries are pushed and how complicated everything is, the events of this book almost seem too easy and angst-free and the characters too ‘good’. On the other hand, we live in times where honest communication, respect and understanding no longer seem as important to many people. Seeing these characters embrace those values and navigating a very difficult situation in such a graceful way gives me hope.
These characters may not be real, but they feel real and what they stand for is beautiful. I want to aspire to be as open-minded and fearless in my love. This story has touched me deeply and I can strongly recommend reading it.
