I find something comforting and, yes, hot when an age-gap between two men of a decade or two can lead to a successful and believable relationship. I’m a reader who doesn’t have an issue with May-December romances...I adored this story.
Both the characters and the plot development grabbed and kept my attention. Johnnie's sweetness was endearing and Hugh's alpha voice and reactions were hot. Their relationship was fascinating and pleasurable to follow as the couple go through quite a journey together. Their evolving relationship provided smoking hot entertainment and pulled at my heartstrings too. Always a relief when we manage to get a great balance between romance and steamy sex.
This was a great novella. There are many lessons, sweet and some sexy times. There is a lot to the story in such a small amount of time. I didn't think it was too short. It was perfect for a few hours.
As usual with Cardeno C., this book is a wonderful mix of hot smexy times, with real life issues between two men who are seeking their HEA. As hard as it was to like Jason at the beginning of the book, by the end I had a true understanding of him and realized that Jason had a journey to go on. Abe was the perfect companion on that journey. Once Jason realized this, he and Abe made an amazing couple, and I couldn't put the book down until I found out how it all ended. There is a reason Cardeno C. is an auto-buy author for me, and a book like this is just one of many. I highly recommend The Half of Us and all the others in the Family series. This can be read as a standalone, but I wouldn't miss any of the books if I were you.
Cardeno C. has become my go-to author when I want to read a sexy, beautiful m/m story that I know will be filled with heart, well-written characters and tons of emotion. ...This is a hot, sweet and gorgeous story that I absolutely loved from beginning to end. ....These two have some SCORCHING hot sex scenes together and I absolutely loved watching Jase's love for Abe slowly unfold throughout the story. ...These two really made a family together, and that is the real heart of this story. Treat yourself to a fantastic, beautifully written and sexy story and read The Half of Us. You will love it!
