What Aaron wasn't planning on was being completely and utterly taken with Malachi, who is the same age as his son, Julian. Malachi feels the same way though and as the weeks progress, Julian's behavior gets worse and worse. He's acting out in ways that Aaron has never seen before, slacking on the job and Aaron doesn't know what to do.
In the meantime, the tension between Malachi and Aaron explodes and they take things to the next level. There is a scene in here that is so freakin hot I can't even begin to tell you how good it was.
Of course things blow up but how it's handled is extremely well done. I really, really loved this book. I've always been a fan of age gap stories, especially ones that involve friends of their children and there's something about this one that takes it pretty high up on that list! My heart physically hurt for Aaron and Malachi at some points and with my angst addiction issues, that's hard to do. I loved it!
I've adored everything I've ever read by Kade and Piper separately, so I had no doubts that I would love this book, but I wasn't expecting to completely fall in love with these characters the way I did! When you combine two authors who's characters always have amazing chemistry, you get boys who's chemistry is explosive! Great job on this one! I hope to see more collabs in the future between these two.
Five HUGE Stars!!
The son brings along his room-mate who, unlike the son, is working his way through college. The summer job in construction/renovation with free room to stay in, is very welcome, and Malachai has worked for his carpenter father, so he knows something about it.
Aaron had his son at a young age by accident. He always knew he was gay, but kept his sex life apart from his son. Malachai is out of the closet, but discrete. They both begin fighting an attraction, knowing things could get very messy...
So--father falls for son's friend and visa versa. That's the main story, although there are other conflicts due to Aaron's particular relationship to his son and the mother, and from being half in the closet due to his job as a construction company owner.
The relationship is sweet and thoughtful and very sexy. There are characters making things more difficult for each other by lack of communication, but let's face it, the main problem of trying not to get into the pants of your son's friend is tough no matter what!
I enjoyed this book. The characters were easy to relate to (except maybe the son, although he had his good points) and the situation wasn't as odd as it could be given the two main characters. Age difference wasn't extreme... it was just the relationships that had to be worked with.
I wasn't a fan of Julian--he was a bit bratty, and a lot more immature than Malachi. It was difficult for me to see how Malachi and Julian could be such good friends--they were so different in most every way, it seemed. Still, it didn't impact my enjoyment of the story.
If you are looking for a really sweet romance, this is a perfect pick!
Aaron Costa is hoping that a summer spent restoring the family lake home will bring him closer to his son Julian. He also offers work to Julian's college roommate Malachi. Julian doesn't know his father is gay, but Malachi figures it out. A May-December romance follows when Julian chooses to slack off, leaving Aaron and Malachi on their own.
It has lots of angst, lots of hot sex, but the best part is its heart. I give it a summer full of stars.
