Sarina Bowen is an auto-buy for me, especially her M/M books. After reading Him and Us, I dove headfirst into this one with the same expectations.
I have to admit that this book was hard to get through. The two MCs had a past history which was nicely fleshed out and sweet. I found Mike unlikable in so many ways. The real hero in this book is John. He was courageous, strong, and still shone like a beacon of light through everything. John is what kept me reading. (And hockey because I love my sports books). I hurt for John and even thought about him after I had finished reading it.
There were some hot, sexy times, but when we got to their first real time......off page. That was a huge disappointment for me. The first time they truly connected and then..nothing. I'm a smutty girl. What can I say?
I loved all of the side characters. They were amazing. I would love to see a sequel for these two somewhere down the road. I WANT to know how they are doing. Great book!
