Carter Darling’s life has been a whirlwind since his mother was elected to the senate when he was a teen. From private school to joining the military, he tried to forge his own path while making as few ripples as possible. But an injury forced him to figure out new goals for his life. After his parents were involved in a sex scandal, he decided to go back home to Tennessee to get some distance and get away from the madness.
Finally going from fake-boyfriends to the real thing, Spencer Cohen and Andrew Landon are trying to take things slow. They know what they have could be something special and despite the flammable sexual tension, they don’t want to crash and burn.
Spencer is learning to open up, sharing the secrets of his past with Andrew. Afraid to put his heart on the line, yet seemingly unable to stop it, Spencer knows he’s falling in love with him. Andrew is petrified of leaping in blindly, yet it seems the slower they go, the faster they fall.
As they navigate their new relationship, Spencer worries Andrew will freak out when he takes on a new client. But it’s not a normal case and Spencer soon realises things are not what they seem. When things take a downward turn and they work together to help the client, Spencer and Andrew need to decide if they’re ready for the next step.
Sweet and oh so SEXY!
Unlike in book 1, there's plenty of steamy action here, and it's incredibly hot.
I adore take-charge Andrew and flustered Spencer! These men are just so good together.
The book's main focus is the relationship, with a side plot related to Spencer being hired to look for a man's missing boyfriend (something he doesn't typically do). Spencer's investigation is interesting but doesn't take over the story.
The secondary characters continue to amuse me. I like the banter between Spencer and Lola, and have a soft spot for badass Emilio, who looks 100 percent the mafia boss in a suit. Also, could Andrew's parents be any more awesome?
I really love the chemistry and tenderness between Spencer and Andrew. Spencer blames his "stupid brain" for a lot of things, but he is getting it all right.
Jazz, cookbooks for geeks, tea, toothbrushes: the little things rule the world.
This one ends with a tentative HEA. The possibility for MORE is wide open.
I would love to read Yanni's story too.
