Charlie “Chase” Rhodes
It’s funny how when you’re a kid you think you have it all figured out. You think you know who you’re going to be when you grow up, what you’re going to do. And yet, you can’t actually see yourself as a grown-up. I mean, grown-ups are old. And they’re constantly saying shit we think we’ll never say and doing shit we think we’ll never do.
When I think back to how many times I said I’d never do this and I’d never say that, I want to cringe. Because you know what? I do all of it now.
Just this morning, when I was getting the kids off to school and they were fighting with each other over who got to hold a spatula—yeah, I know—I told them to stop talking to each other. No, really, I did. This was me: “Bobby, Stephi! You…
I thoroughly enjoyed the way this book was told....It really was engaging as well as refreshing. From the start of the story I was completely invested in Charlie's journey... This story brought out a lot of emotions in me. Charlie goes through a lot and I couldn't help but feel for him every step of the way during his journey. Love, heartbreak, anger, sadness are just some of the things I felt while I sat here listening to Charlie talk about his life. You really do feel like you are listening to his story vs reading it because you start to look at Charlie as your friend. I know sounds crazy right but really it was just so well written the pages come to life.
Can I just say O.M.G. Cardeno took a concept that should never have worked and not only made it work, but made it work well. ... There are some very touching moments that we can all remember from our youth ... some will pull on your heart strings; some will make you so ANGRY you want to scream; and some will make you laugh so loudly you will disturb anyone within a mile radius of you while you are reading them. But what they all do is tell the love story these three men share over two decades. They all end up going their own way, but fate has a way of making decisions for us that we would never have expected. This isn't the average M/M/M story. In my opinion, this is a very unique take on the concept and it just works. ... I think this is one of Cardeno C.'s best works, and I have never laughed as hard as I did while reading the scene about the lentils. That was just brilliant! If you have liked Cardeno's work in the past, I think you will love this one. I know I did.
More Than Everything (Family Series Book 3) had a bit of everything in it. Humor. Coming of Age. Erotica. Menage.
This was an awesome, hilarious romance between three men. ... This story line hinted of pure romantic drama but for some reason, Cardeno C. did not do the usual and instead surprises us readers with a lot romance, lots of laughter, some ridiculously hilarious situations and the Lentils Misadventure. That particular chapter had me giggling and laughing so hard I was crying. Of course the dogs were kind of weirded out as I was doing that at 3 a.m. Yes, 3 in the morning! Once I picked this up again after a suddenly and unexpectedly busy day, I just could not put it down. ... More Than Everything is an incredible story of love, humor and life. It has topped all of the other books written by the author, become my Family Series favorite, and set up the bar higher of readers' expectations for the author's future works.
