Gay List Book Reviews
In many ways this book shows a development of an already great talent. This story is smooth, the writing is clear, concise and beautiful. The shifts between times and voices was flawless and creatively done. The plot pulled me in and carried me along on a journey of first loves, loss, second chances, forgiveness, personal growth and what it means to truly love someone and want to create a life with them. I loved everything about this book. There was not one false note. Charlie "Chase" is an absolute delight. ... He's a dancer and a bit of a dreamer who has had to make his own way in the world and even though Scott and Adan each took a turn at breaking his heart, they could never break him nor forget him. Scott is great. ...He is the perfect first love and I fell in love with him right along with Charlie. ... Adan was complicated. He was so damaged by his macho culture upbringing with a huge chip on his shoulder and a drive to succeed professionally that left little room for much else in his life. I loved how he was with his men. He saw and remembered everything about them, he understood them. He, of all of them, grew the most in this story. In the most delightful and beautiful ways. ...Honestly, I was a little nervous going into this triad story. But I trust Cardeno C to get me to a happy ending. I knew CC would make me cry with this one. I cried happy because it was so beautiful and sweet, I cried sad because they were breaking each other's hearts, I laughed long and hard at some of the stories, I rejoiced and hoped and believed. I loved every moment. I want more. These men will be ones that I revisit again and again.
