This book was a great find that I stumbled upon. Essentially, a long-time gay couple has kept their “sons” apart for so many years, until a tragedy brings them together. The two sons couldn’t be more different from each other – one is a struggling, down-to-earth literary enthusiast, determined to do everything on his own; the other is a playboy, happy to accept his “given” place in society and living off of his uncle.

While the story is quite predictable from the beginning and set-up, it gets there in a somewhat realistic way. These two men do n0t finally meet and suddenly fall in love – they have several misunderstandings, jealousy, anger and the such, until they finally learn to build a life together, which each other.

The sex, once it happens, is hot – but be forewarned, this is not a very “graphic” read. The sex has a little bit of flair, when it finally arrives, but this book isn’t for someone looking for some heavy erotica. But it definitely does get hot (and unexpected!).

Overall, this was a read worth diving into. The characters were well-developed and the story, was quite realistic – you will go through many emotions when reading this, a true sign that the plot itself was well thought-out and written. You will stumble upon beginning bondage and more male erotic love scenes.

Out of four…
Overall Read: ♥♥♥
Sex Heat: 
Plot: ♥♥♥

Read this if you like… An enjoyable read with a predictable, but more realistic plot. Also, if you are a reader who loves a good story (with sex interspersed), this is for you!

Other authors/books to try (and why you’ll like them):

I am a big fan of Carol Lynne, especially for stories with a plot… and sex! Ok, tame sex, but action none-the-less. You’ll enjoy reading this series, currently a series of five, if you enjoyed “The Wish.”
