Two years have passed since that long, dark, night of despair and near death when English-lit geek Yancy Bell met dancing jock Curt Donovan. Now a couple living in New York, they appear happy and well suited to one another.

But appearances can be deceptive.

Yancy feels Curt is growing distant, and they barely see each other. At Juilliard, Curt has bonded with a new friend, Greg. Yancy fears his relationship with Curt is coming to a head. Meanwhile,Curt harbors a secret that could spell the end of Yancy’s love for him.

Yet neither man dares to confront his fears—or the other.

Will their fate be a code yellow or a golden opportunity?

My View:

This was a satisfying conclusion to the Heroes at Heart series. I enjoyed the first book but the second book was lacking in my opinion. I’m happy to say that the final part of Yancy and Curt’s was sweet and realistic.

It’s been two years since they first met and their relationship has had it’s ups and downs. Yancy has allowed his fears to get the better of him and believes Curt is cheating on him. He’s not wrong to be suspicious. The signs are all there; unexplained late nights out, distant attitude and a very good looking friend.

Hoping to prove or disprove his theory, Yancy talks to Curt’s family and friends. When that doesn’t help he sets out to find out the truth.

I don’t want to spoil the story so I’ll just say that Yancy’s investigation was both humorous and sad at different times.

It would’ve been easy for the author to come up with a silly excuse to explain Curt’s attitude, but the one she uses that is rooted in the reality of the story. It all makes perfect sense in the end.

A wonderfully sweet ending for two true-to-life young men.
