Don’t miss this brand-new male/male romance series from Sidney Bell, author of Bad Judgment
Released after five years in the system for assault, streetwise Edgar-Allen Church is ready to leave the past behind and finally look to his future. In need of a place to crash, he’s leaning on Miller Quinn. A patient, solidly masculine pillar of strength and support, Miller has always been there for him—except in the one way Church has wanted the most.
With his staunchly conservative upbringing, Miller has been playing it straight his whole life. Now with Church so close again, it’s getting harder to keep his denial intact. As they fumble their way back to friendship after so many years apart, Miller struggles to find the courage to accept who he really is. What he has with Church could be more than desire—it could be love. But it could also mean trouble.
I will admit – when I first started this book, I wasn’t sure at all if I was going to like it. It started out slow and it just didn’t seem to draw me in. Yet at some point within the first 20% of the story, I was completely pulled in and I couldn’t put the book down at all.
The relationship between Miller and Church was one that has a long past – but at the same time, they were building a relationship in the present time. I did like the little flashbacks to their story and how they came to know each other, and become such good friends. And getting to see how everything was progressing for the in the present and future was also good.
Another thing that I did love about it was that it wasn’t an insta-love/jump into bed together story. Yes, you could feel the tension between Miller and Church, yet they were still forging their own way and developing their own adult friendships before things got to a sexual level.
There is a fair bit of drama and suspense that was going on throughout the book, and I am not so patiently waiting for the next book in the series. Because while yes, Miller and Church do get their story told in this book, there was so many unanswered questions about everything else, I can’t wait to find out whats going to happen next.
Overall – a great read. I couldn’t recommend it enough.
