A Fostered Love
Christian Sanchez never thought he would see Jonah Roberts again. Foster brothers for a short time as teens, Christian developed a massive crush on Jonah, his tough, older roommate. That all ended when the cops came and arrested Jonah, stealing him from Christian’s uncertain world.
Jonah never forgot Christian, even though he cut off all contact with the boy. Jonah knew the kid with the crush on him would be better off forgetting that Jonah ever existed. Jonah stayed in contact with his foster mother Marisol, but refused to hear stories about Christian, and made the woman promise never to tell Christian anything about him.
Upon her death fifteen years later, Marisol leaves a request that Jonah come home and help Christian renovate her house. Jonah can’t refuse, even though he knows he will have to face Christian once again.
Although they haven’t seen each other in years, neither man has forgotten the other. Neither man will deny Marisol her final request…even if it means facing their past, working together, sharing the room they had as teens, getting to know one another now as men, and discovering that the brief friendship they shared has altered into a consuming, abiding love.
Together for four years now, Christian and Jonah from A Fostered Love are still wildly in love and passionately attracted to each other. Jonah has never seen snow, and Christian thinks he’s set in place the perfect Valentine’s Day weekend away to show his man something new.
Sometimes, though, Mother Nature can be a real bitch, and this year she brings Christian’s and Jonah’s plans to a screeching halt before they can even begin.
If there’s one thing that messes with Jonah’s head and heart, it’s seeing Christian upset. Can Jonah come up with a miracle and show Christian that sometimes the best holidays are the ones spent in your own backyard?
A Fostered Love
I have had A Fostered Love on my shelf forever, well for two years, but in m/m romance time, we can call that forever 😉 I have wavered on reading it time and again. It was interested in the premise, but Cameron Dane is hit or miss with me. Since she recently released the 3rd novel in the series, I thought it was time to read the series. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be. A Fostered Love was a miss for me.
I never believed the relationship between Christian and Jonah. The Main characters were either whining or fucking, and it got old. Add to that the use of clinical phrases like rectum and over the top euphemisms like “fluttering hole” and “rippling rectum” and I could not stay in the story. I did make it through and was happy for Jonah and Christian’s HEA, but I was also glad to be done…. well almost done.
Snowfall is basically an extended epilogue for A Fostered Love, as such I am reviewing them together. In Snowfall, we get to catch up with Christian and Jonah about four years down the line. We also get a glimpse at the triad from book two, Something New (link to Teresa’s review). It is hot. It is sweet. It lets us know that they are for forever. While the plot is predictable, the plot isn’t the point of this little story. If you enjoyed A Fostered Love and fell in love with Jonah and Christian, be sure to pick this one up.
This review is based on a copy purchased by the reviewer independent of any review copies offered.
