The Half of Us Reviews

Joyfully Jay Oooh, I just loved this one you guys! ...What is so wonderful about The Half of Us is the way author Cardeno C really elevates the story beyond just this fears commitment/wants a relationship dynamic in a way that makes for a fascinating story and wonderful characters. ...Jason doesn't see a future for himself with anyone long term and it never occurs to him he can have that. But as the relationship with Abe slowly builds, Jason goes with it. ...It scares him sometimes, and definitely surprises him, but Jason goes with it in a way that is really appealing. What also makes this work so well is the complexity of both of these characters. ....Jason comes across arrogant and quick tempered, but he is also so warm and loving underneath. He dotes on Abe, he is caring with his ex-wife, and he is determined to make a relationship with his kids. For his part, Abe is also more than he seems at first. ...What is interesting about Abe is that deep down, there is a much wilder side to him than he lets out. ...There is this wonderful undercurrent of dirtiness between them, of hard, intense, messy sex that makes both of them crazy. ...The men are crazy hot together and it is so much fun to see them really explore both of their desires....I just adored Abe and loved him and Jason together. I really liked seeing how Abe makes Jason a better man, makes him reach for things he didn't think he could have but always wanted. I loved seeing Abe too finally satisfy those inner desires, both for a real relationship and also for a man that can thrill him sexually. Abe and Jason are incredibly hot together, but also super sweet and romantic. So this is another excellent story from author Cardeno C and one I can highly recommend.

Leann's Book Reviews Jason was such an extraordinary character to get to know. ...Confident and honest to a fault, he was clear as to who he was and what was to be expected of him. .....Abe was a great character too. I admired his tenacity, his caring heart and the patience he found in himself when it came to dealing with Jason. ...Cardeno didn't pull any punches in bringing forth the connection between these two. Through every stilted conversation, honest interaction and heated encounters Abe and Jason's connection never failed to be present–always growing deeper, bringing them closer each time. ...I expect it's not an easy feat to bring all these elements to the page, but Cardeno brought it all together seamlessly without taking away from any one of the elements involved. The emotions were present, intense yet subtle and correctly portrayed. The romance was slow-building but firmly established and developed. And of course, the chemistry was explored in many different ways. Cardeno managed to not only bring the heat to these scenes but also brought into it the complexity of the characters–what made them tick, what they yearned for and how emotionally invested they were in what they were sharing. Be it their first heated embrace, their flirty banter or just a simple look, Jason and Abe's chemistry jumped off the page and their emotions made themselves known.
