This is a love story through and through, and yes, it is VERY believable and very down to earth. What I love most about Cardeno C's books is just the fact that the ultimate goal is just that: LOVE. The greatest part about these character is that both of them are very family oriented people. Jason has kids and Abe is not shy when it comes to interacting with them and that makes the heartfelt storyline easy to follow and very realistic.
fantastic characters, a sweet story with lots of heart, family at it's core, surprisingly sexy-as-hell steam which was so much hotter than I expected, hilarious banter, and just a beautiful love story. ...These two were just perfect together, they balanced the other out and just completed each other.
Rarely do I find a story of two gay men as romantic but this one fits that bill perfectly. The author took two damaged guys, one on each end of the spectrum and merged them into a loving and caring couple. The characters were so wonderful and they captured my heart immediately. ...It was wonderful to watch these two completely different men meld together and support each other..... this is another wonderful book about family and how it doesn't always resemble a storybook but still be perfect anyways.
Abe is exactly what Jase needs to get his head on straight and get his life in order. I love the fact that they just fit each other so perfectly, even though on the surface, they may seem worlds apart.
Cardeno C. is quickly becoming my go to author for gay romance stories that are rich in dialogue and plot with steamy scenes meant to enhance the relationship of the main characters not consume it... the intermingling of the storyline and the passion Jason and Abe share for each other inside the bedroom flow seamlessly together. ...Abe is such a fantastic character, and he's also the perfect man to show Jason that he can have the family and the kind of relationship that he wanted all those years ago. ...I love the fact that there wasn't a big blowout or betrayal in the book; Jason struggled enough trying to figure out what he truly wanted and if he was ready to take that step, so I'm glad nothing else was added into the mix to mess it up. It's the perfect feel good romance story about one person who finally figures out what he wants and the guy he wants it with and the courage to finally step up and take it.
