I received this book from the author for an honest review.
Ok I think that this is my new favorite book in the series…..EEEP!! I loved loved loved this friends to lover’s story. I loved the angst and the chemistry that we get from the two characters. I loved how each man was struggling as a single father who is devoted and loves his boys without end. But what I really loved was seeing two broken men find love with each other.
Cam’s story starts with the loss of his much-loved husband. His friend and heterosexual best friend, Kade, is there the whole way. He helps Cam pick up the pieces for himself and his boys. Kade is a man stuck in a loveless marriage. He turns to his best friend Cam when he realizes his marriage is over.
The two men develop a great friendship and support system but a night of drinking turns to some open and honest communication where Kade tells a little secret that will alter the men forever.
I loved how they two men were so afraid of what they were feeling and how they both took things slow. The small touches and first kiss….scorching for sure. I loved who they were both scared to try because of messing up their friendship and support system but also scared to let a once in a life time love go.
The story definitely tugged on my heart a few times along with made me stop to fan myself because DANG it got HOT really quick!!!
A.D. Ellis spends the majority of her days loving and wrangling two school-aged children and a husband before heading to the inner city of Indiana to teach a challenging group of alternative education students in grades third through sixth. Most days she hits the gym after school in hopes of running and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole day’s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. It’s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school.
Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading.
A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind.
A.D. Ellis’ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.
