In typical Cardeno style, we have a really sweet story of two fun and interesting people. We get a bit of hot smexy times, some humor, and a really touching “awww” for an ending. I have to hand it to people who can aptly create a fully developed story in only a few words. This is absolutely one of them! Despite it’s short length, it felt very satisfying by the end.
I am a big fan of this author’s work. Cardeno C creates characters that stay with you and the romances are sweet and sometimes hard fought for. Rough Edges is a perfect example of the fight for the happy ever after. This romance is a story of real perseverance, especially on Brent’s part.
I loved seeing both of these characters interact. Even though Kyle is constantly trading barbs with Brent there doesn’t seem to be too much fight behind them. Kyle is amazed when he does finally open his eyes to really see Brent. I loved Brent’s attitude towards Kyle, knowing that he uses is attitude as a defense mechanism he slowly begins to break down his walls until they crumble. Both of these characters are sweet deep down and really just want someone to love them.
