ARC Review: The Half of Us by Cardeno C.

The Half of Us (Family, #4)
From the blurb:

Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it’s a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.

Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn’t dimmed Abe Green’s optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved.

For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves

Heather's rating:

Cardeno C. nirvana.

The angle was different, which made Abe gag, but Jason didn't slow down. "Take it," he growled as he slid over Abe's tongue, "Fucking choke on it."

Cardeno C. in all of C.C.'s fluffy, sexy, dirty-talking glory. I'll take a well done, smexy as hell C.C. book any day of the week.

There is nothing new or outrageously inventive about this story, but that is just fine with me. This book featured scorching hot chemistry between the two MCs, a size/age difference that worked for me, and a filthy-mouthed doctor. Me likey.

Though the lust is there from the start, the relationship develops slowly over time, and I appreciated how that aspect wasn't rushed. This book was also pretty angst free, with only a tiny misunderstanding that is resolved quickly. Low drama is how I like to roll.

Kids and an ex-wife can derail a book in a hot second, but C.C. made the side characters interesting, important to the plot, and, most importantly, NOT annoying.

A fab easy, dirty read with zero missteps, this going in my mental "Cardeno C. for the win" file.
