Strong Enough Reviews

Rainbow Book Reviews OMG, I completely fell for Spencer. He's so sweet, a little vulnerable, shy, and totally has no idea of his own worth. He actually believed his ex and thinks he's dull, unattractive, and not good in bed. And, who couldn't absolutely adore Emilio? A hunky stud who is gentle and is looking for the long-term guy to share his life with. Emilio wants what his parents, his brothers and his sister have all found, the love of his life and he's fairly certain that person is Spencer. ... Watching Spencer and Emilio get to their happy ever after was really lovely. It was everything I had hoped for in this love story and I wasn't disappointed at all.

The Novel Approach Reviews I don't think I have ever read a book by Cardeno C. that hasn't tugged at my heartstrings. Cardeno has a way of writing MCs that just pulls me in and makes me fall in love with them immediately. ... This book touched me so deeply for many different reasons.... It is so sweet to witness Emilio demonstrate the reasons he can't resist Spencer and even more wonderful to watch Spencer start to believe he is handsome. I love how Emilio helps Spencer get over a past trauma that is still causing side effects even now. One of the best parts of the story was the love and acceptance Spencer finally finds, not only from Emilio, but from his entire family. Emilio's uber-tough brothers, his loving sister and his parents all took Spencer in and adopted him into the Sanchez family. ... I love Cardeno's books and this one is no exception. Watching Spencer come out of his shell and seeing that there is more to Emilio than his great body was a fun ride, and it is one I plan on taking as many times as possible. Seriously, you will miss a wonderfully sweet romance if you miss this one!

The Romance Reviews I thoroughly enjoyed this sexy and romantic story where love flowed easily between two good men while they found their place in each other's lives. Another fantastic treat from Cardeno C., who has quickly become one of my favorite authors.

The Romance Studio It packs a sweet punch and I loved every single word. Emilio and Spencer are simply wonderful together. For all it's sweetness, the characters and dialogue are beautifully written. ... I found myself smiling a lot feeling the happiness both men felt as they took their journey to love. The supporting characters brought more treats to the party insisting we all have a good time. I had a wonderful time getting to know these special men and I thank the author for inviting me along. This was a lovely romance, sexy, sweet and all that comes with. As always with a Cardeno C book, I look forward to more.
