It is always a joy to read a Cardeno C book. They are always a little bit of light in what can be a dark world at times.
I really love this story and this narration only added to my overall enjoyment.
Zev and Jonah are two very amazing, easy to love men, and I loved the fact they were best friends turned to lovers. Watching Zev give up everything, including his health, so that Jonah could live his dream was a bit painful. The dragged-out love affair slash mating made it all the sweeter when Zev and Jonah finally committed.
Emotionally laden romance with excellent alternating dual first-person narration that I devoured. Its cloying sweetness and perfection hit my romance sweet-tooth perfectly. ... I'm a sucker for the friends to lovers romance trope and I got that here but without a lot of angst that usually happens for the previously "straight" lead. Jake's total acceptance of his love for Nate had a simplicity that is rarely found in gay-for-you books and I ate it with a spoon! This book is emotionally intense where every sex scene is steeped in the men's grandiose feelings for each other and I loved this huge romantic relationship....I loved how this romance was told as well as the huge, idealistic relationship between two nearly perfect men.
It has emotional ups and down, and characters that really come alive. I really adore that about this author's work the way the characters really jump off the pages and the emotional connections can be felt.... The story has a great pace to it, lots of emotional connection and the ending left me feeling like this family really was headed in the right direction.
