From the Publisher:

Edward “Ted” Cleary and Cazimir Palit have shared everything for eight years. Well, almost everything. They own a successful business together, share a house in West Hollywood, and never travel anywhere without each other, but they’ve never slept in the same bed.


There’s one more thing Ted hasn’t shared with Caz. Ted has a mother, sister, and brother in Atlanta Caz has never met. With good reason. They threw Ted out when he wouldn’t “change his ways,” and he’s never looked back. When Ted is rejected all over again, Caz steps up and proves he isn’t the superficial man Ted always took him for, and Ted’s long-hidden feelings might finally be returned.

My View

Another soft spot was hit with this story.  As an amateur photographer, I love stories about photographers.  This story hit my friends-to-lovers buttons, as well.  I adored poor Ted.  Caz, on the other hand was a blind playboy not worthy of dear sweet Ted.  Alas, Caz is the one, only one, that Ted wants so I want that for sweet Ted as well.

His family has forsaken him.  All he has is his friendship and business with Caz.  Caz sleeps with anything that moves, except Ted.  One day, however, that starts to change when Ted has to confront his past and he needs Caz there as support.  Well he doesn’t NEED Caz, as Ted is pretty tough on his own, but Caz finally steps up to be the man Ted knows he can be.  Caz finally shows me he is worthy of the adoration Ted has for him.

If you can’t tell I really loved this couple.  In only 72 pages, Owens had be completely pulling for this couple to make it.  For this couple to have a future.  I would love to see more from Ted and Caz and see how they navigate their newly won status.
