Danced Close (Portland Heat #6) by Annabeth Albert #mm #review @AnnabethAlbert


Disclaimer MaleTAGPortland, Oregon, is one of the hottest cities in America. Just ask all the hard-working men sweating it up behind the counters of the restaurants, boutiques, and cafés all over town …

Newly clean and sober, Todd’s taken a shine to his job at Portland’s most talked about bakery. It’s not just the delicious desserts they sell, but the tasty treats who keep walking through the door. That certainly includes Kendall Rose, a wedding planner with eyes the color of brown sugar and skin to match. Todd doesn’t try to hide his attraction to Kendall’s elegant confidence and unique style, even as he worries about exposing the secrets of his past.

For Kendall, the attention is just part of the anything-goes Portland he’s grown to love. But he’s still looking for that special someone who will embrace all of him—including his gender fluidity. So he takes a chance and asks Todd to be his partner in a dance class leading to a fundraiser. When the music starts and he takes Todd in his arms, Kendall is shocked at how good it feels. Turns out taking the lead for once isn’t a mistake. In fact, it might be time to take the next step and follow his heart …addtogoodreads_zps55cd15da14Crystal Marie_s RamblingsTAG

I’ve read almost all of the Portland Heat books, and I have enjoyed them all. This one is no different.

I loved how their are so many different aspects to this story, but they all seemed to work together. Without all those aspects, this story wouldn’t have been as good as it was.

I haven’t read a lot of books with characters like Kendall – where they are gender fluid.  Yet I was completely drawn into his character. I don’t want to give too much away so that it ruins the story for other people.  But I will say this – if you have enjoyed the Portland Heat series, then you will love this book. If you haven’t started the series yet and are on the fence, I’d check out this book to see how you would like it.
