A Work in The Guy Series
Aaron Weiss knows how to escape. Years ago, he ran from a romantic disappointment and impulsively joined the Army. Now, he’s forced to take a medical discharge and readjusting to life at home proves a challenge.
Jesse Ross knows how to hide. He realizes he’s an oddball, and that he’s an outsider within his own family. He also knows his secret love since childhood, Aaron, only wants his good-looking, favored older brother. Yet Jesse could never completely abandon his intense feelings for Aaron. Over the years, Jesse was a faithful pen pal to him. Still, he’s shocked to his core to find Aaron on his doorstep.
As long-buried secrets and past hurts take center stage, the two are overwhelmingly drawn to each other. But it’s their future that may force them to risk everything.
My View – Story:
I enjoyed this story. I liked that the characters were each flawed and had room for growth. I liked that the author shared that growth but that things still have the potential for more in the future. I liked that the author did not fix everything so that the ending would be picture perfect.
The relationship between these men was enjoyable. It was not instant and it was also not perfect. Because of their inherent hangups, the relationship took work and each MC had to compromise. I loved that these men actually communicated with each other so that the issues were resolved and not just overlooked in favor of hot sex. I loved the romance, the little notes and the things they do for each other. Not all romance is hearts and flowers. Sometimes it is getting on a plane and facing your fears because you want to support your partner.
I like that the story was slower than some of the other books I have been reading. Some stories are so rushed that I wish for more, but in this case, the story progression was steady so there was more room for development and connection.
My View – Narration:
Matt Baca has a pleasant voice and I enjoyed listening to him.
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the audiobook of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
