There was such chemistry between Tyler and Jaxon, and the passion just flew off the pages. However, beyond that, I immediately, I fell in love with Jax and Ty. Tyler, who was betrayed, not only by a man he cared for, but also by someone who should have loved him unconditionally. Except for his best friend, Simon, Ty would never let another man get that close to him again. When he meets Jax, the attraction cannot be denied, but he worked hard not to give Jax the opportunity to have the upper hand on his heart. Fortunately, Jax wouldn't let Ty deny what was happening between them. There were some situations that presented themselves that could have kept them apart, but as hard as the some people worked to tear them apart, Jax worked harder to let Ty know the issues were, in fact, non-issues. Jax had to convince a cautious Ty that some things are worth fighting for, and that love definitely is always "worth the risk"!
I highly recommend this book, and I look forward to reading the others in this series!
Tyler and Jax meet in the club that Tyler works in, Infinity. Their reaction to each is is instant and powerful. Then Tyler finds out just who Jax is, and he fights the attraction. And just when they get back on an even keel, something else pushes Tyler to question whether he is really worth the risk to Jax.
For the most part, I enjoyed this. There were a couple a lines, and phrases that kept popping up that kept it from getting the full five stars, though. Not listing them here, either cos they is wude, and some site are a little prudish in what you are allowed to say!
I loved that Jax goes all in, right from the start, making his feelings known, that Ty is really worth his time and effort, and he says those magic words early, with I don't usually like. HOWEVER, Jax makes it clear that while HE said them, Tyler can say them when he is ready, even if Jax knew how Tyler really felt at that point. Cos Jax can read Ty like the books he writes!
Ty takes some time, to word how he feels, though. He isn't sure when Jax will dump him, that's what he expects to happen. It takes time for Ty to really see that maybe, just maybe, Jax will stick around.
I did expect a couple of certain character to make trouble, but they don't. Someone else does that! Loved that Jax' family take on Tyler as a second son.
Apart from the repetitive phrases, it's very well written, from both guys plus another's point of view. These guys are at it like bunnies, and it's very explicit. Very much to my liking after several not so explicit books 😝
A solid 4 star read.

Quick Reasons: adorable, realistic couple; I felt the author tried to "wrap up" every single section with a happily-ever-after, which didn't work for me personally; not a whole lot happened in this book; I felt it was perhaps a bit longer than necessary; loved the drama and how "real" the characters felt throughout
---"I'm glad I met you tonight, Tyler."
"Because..." Jax's voice trailed off as he eyed him from head to toe. "You intrigue me in a way I haven't been in a long time."---
First and foremost: Jax and Ty? Probably two of the sweetest, most adorable characters I've run across in my recent reading world (which admittedly is pretty small; new jobs and new lives mean less reading time?! I need to work on this) The characters are well-written, complex, and realistic. They react to and interact with each other in ways that were both believable and entertaining; the snark, at key points in this book, kept me enthralled and giggling.
Because this is a romance and is focused upon the building up and strengthening of a relationship, I wasn't expecting a lot out of the plot. I love a good, steamy read as much as the next lovesick fool, and this book definitely delivered on the hot and sexy front. The scenes alternate between heavy and dramatic to sweet and tender, and I found myself falling quickly into slight jealousy over how much kindness and caring the two main characters shower one another with.
---Jax chuckled while his fingers made quick work of the giftwrap. When he lifted the lid off the black box, he audibly gasped, as did everyone in the room, except for Ty who was grinning like a Cheshire cat. Lying on a bed of red satin was a white platinum band.---
I did, however, feel as if perhaps the plot was a bit TOO one-dimensional to warrant such a long read. While the pages seemed to fly by me in a flurry of sweat and sheets, I found myself wondering why so many of the scenes seemed more focused on bedroom antics than on actual story work. In fact, I felt a bit disappointed at the end of things, to be honest--while there IS some fantastic character growth happening, I don't feel like I was given the chance to really sink my teeth into a dramatic, emotional plot. It fell pretty flat, I suppose. I was also a little bit peeved at the way the author seemed to always try to wrap things up with a neat, pretty, happy bow tie. Even scenes branching out from bedroom antics were closed with declarations of everlasting love and loyalty...and that didn't seem entirely realistic to me, nor did it work in quite the way I think C.J. Lynne was striving for.
In the end, while I enjoyed this read, it was also slightly disappointing. I really enjoyed how adorable and realistic the characters were, and how complex some of the aspects of their relationship became along the journey...but I felt the book might have been just a bit TOO long, and the "happily ever after" at the end of each section sort of irked me. I'd still recommend to lovers of diverse reads, sappy romances, and characters who put their love lives above everything else. This was a quick, steamy read--if you pick it up, you might consider cracking a window or two!

The romance between Ty and Jax is sugary sweet and scorching hot. There is some angst as this pair get their footing in the relationship, but issues are...Read more
