This is book 5 in a series, but you actually can read them as stand-alones. The characters from other books don't have much of a role here. This is the story of Jeff, who never seems to find the connection he is looking for. He finds a lot of hook ups, but nothing longer term. He tries to resist the 1-night stand routine, but on Halloween, a masked man does get his attention. And then...you know. There is that broom closet....
Drake has set aside his house flipping to help straighten out some issues with a company he helped to start. It's a tech company and there is a lot of tech talk in here. I wondered if some readers would have a problem with that. I am a 'techy' person and I didn't even get all of it. But it's not vital that you 'get it'. There's just quite a lot of it. Drake is placed in charge of a team that will solve the issues the company is having and who is on his team? Jeff. From that night in the bar. Drake has the advantage for awhile because he knows who Jeff is; Jeff did not see Drake's face so he doesn't have a clue. All those late night work hours do bring the two together and the relationship grows from there.
The 2 major plot tracks in this book are 1) how to fix the tech issues and how did they happen in the first place (bit of a mystery here) and 2) Drake is most definitely not an OUT man, and he doesn't ever intend to be. Jeff, otoh, is publicly out.
I have enjoyed the books of this series, and I'll certainly read the next one (delivery date in my calendar) but this one just felt 'less than' to me. Parts of the plot seemed rushed, especially near the end. Formatting issues were either annoying or a challenge. Missing quotation marks, missing words, etc. are just annoying and I can live with that. When I have to keep backing up to see who is talking (or who texted what to whom) then it's more of a challenge to my comprehension of the story. Finally, other major problems I have might be a SPOILER, SO....
Drake says he has never been with any man more than once. But earlier in the book he talks about (or reminisces) about how Chris came to his house for a ball game, stayed for sex, then left. And they did that repeatedly. The other thing that didn't make sense to me was the whole Drake hurt in the parking lot incident. I had to read it 3x and I still couldn't picture it given the description. I was like, "Did Drake get thrown OUT of that car? Did the voices Jeff heard belong to people who attacked Drake? Did the white car HIT Drake?" Just unclear. My last major question was how did Chris get into Cooper's house? Those people all worked with Cooper and Chris. And no one noticed him?
Oh, wait. One last little thing that did bug me. The dirty talk at the end (from Jeff, mainly) did NOT seem in character at all. It seemed like he was channeling some inner porn star. That just took me out of the very sweet ending, because I had to scrunch my face and say, "Ewww."
Drake is that person. He co-owns a software company and was to busy building it to be with his mother when she was dying. Guilt ridden, he becomes a silent partner to spend more time with his deeply religious, homophobic family who believe appearance is everything. He meets Jeff at a club on Halloween and has sex in a utility closet. He is wearing a mask and doesn't speak so he won't be recognized (hint of how deep in the closet he is)
The following Monday he sees Jeff at a meeting for his company which is at the brink of bankruptcy (the reason he came back) and sees that one of the employees is Jeff.
Jeff is super sweet and wants to find love but instead finds himself being used again and again. He falls for Drake and I actually feel sorry for him because for once, I can't see that happening.
It does but the book ends before Drake tells his family or takes the relationship public. To me, that wasn't the ending because I still think that he'll chicken out and leave Jeff heartbroken. I love Aria's books and have read each one in this series but this book left me unsatisfied!
Aria Grace has once again shown that a romance novel can have both a plot as well as being erotic. We are presented with a mystery, and even though we knew, in advance, who done it, his motives and methods are the challenge.
As the motives are revealed we are also presented with the psychology of the two lovers and we discover their motives and what makes them tick. I recommend this book, especially to my gay techie colleagues and friends.
To be perfectly honest though I must say that, I do want more. Yes, I believe in their relationship. Yes, it was wonderful watching them get to know each other and fall in love. However, I was left without another chapter or something I'm still left wondering about one certain aspect that had been a major deal. Why, oh why weren't we told how that worked out?
I can only hope that we get more insight into that during the next book.
