Greg Dwyer and Kyrie Li are living the glorious couple life in New York City. Or are they? When struggling actor Kyrie lands a modeling job, he’s ecstatic to have extra cash to spend on his best-friend-turned-boyfriend.
Of course, Greg is suspicious Anders Berglund, the gorgeous and androgynous Swedish cover model the designers love to pair with Kyrie, is after his man. And maybe Kyrie encourages a growing closeness with the guy?
Greg is probably to blame if Kyrie is drawn to the openly gay and seriously beautiful Andy. With Andy, Kyrie can be himself, as loud and proud as he’s always been. But Greg’s sexuality stays firmly locked in the closest except when he’s with Kyrie’s supportive family or alone with the man he loves.
To make matters worse, Greg’s out-of-touch mom meets with financial ruin and moves in with the couple, forcing him into the closet in his own home.
Can Greg find a way to stand up to Mommy Dearest and win back a love he fought so hard to reach? He discovers the road to pride begins at home and with accepting oneself first. Otherwise, it’s just a dead-end street.
To be honest, I’ve only read 1 other book in this series — Hard Act to Follow — which is the start of Greg and Kyrie’s story. When I realized that this book was a continuation of them, I couldn’t grab it quick enough.
I do love that we get to follow along and catch up with the duo, because I was completely wrapped up in them before. I really enjoyed how each of the characters didn’t change drastically in between the books. Usually with a second book, something changes in the characters. Not the case with these two.
Kyrie is still a loveable guy, and Greg was still super serious and likeable in his own way. The sexual tension between these two is off the charts, and the sex scenes are great as well.
The tension and drama that was happening throughout the book was very predictable, yet it was still done very well. Vale did a great job at keeping it going through because there wasn’t a time when I was bored with it or burned out.
I do hope that Vale continues on with Kyrie and Greg’s story because even though it did wrap up very nicely in this book, I just can’t get enough of them!
