Kee Smith isn’t sure who he is anymore. He knows who he used to be—the ignored gay son who chose a blue-collar job just because no one expected it, the submissive bottom who enjoyed large, masculine jocks who put him in his place, the sleek, fashionable twink who partied all night. But after his ex-boyfriend hit Kee and called him names, Kee retired from the social scene.

Back after a year’s hiatus, Kee still doesn’t know where he fits. His friends say he’s a twunk—a twink who put on muscle and turned into a hunk—but Kee is searching for somewhere to belong. Instead of going back to his usual type, Kee hooks up with twink Tate Stevens—a fashion-industry professional who works the image hard. It proves to be the best decision he’s ever made, and not just because he’s starting to regain his sexual confidence.

With Tate, Kee can open up about his fears and confusion without ridicule. Tate has his own fears about putting on weight and getting old. It will take work to make a relationship of opposites succeed, but they begin to realize the compromises will be worth it if they can be together.

My View:

I loved Loving Jay and so when I say the next book out in the Loving You series, I wanted to read it too. I wasn’t disappointed! I loved the sense of place. I could tell I was in Australia with the speech and descriptions.

Kee and Tate were perfect together. The boys were different from each other but they worked. Both had issues in their lives they needed to overcome. From Tate’s eating habits to Kee’s fear of fists, we are given things that make the characters seem real. There isn’t any huge drama but a sweet story of how the two met and fell in love.

I enjoyed seeing Jamie (Jay) and Liam again, as well as getting to know their other friends a little better. There is a bonus chapter that I hope is expanded in the next book. I am looking forward to Vinnie’s story.

Highly recommend for light heartfelt reading.
