Blurb: Continuing from the first book in the series (Never Too Early: The Beginning), Chance and Tucker and Jake and Tor find themselves involved in a friendship that goes much deeper than any of them initially suspected.

Jake has been released from the hospital following his fall from the roof, and Chance and Tucker agree to stay in Arkansas for several days to help Tor with Jake’s care. Chance, however, spends much of his time trying to resist the growing attraction he has for Jake. The confusion between the love he has for Tucker and the new feelings for Jake play tricks with Chance’s mind. Is any of this a good idea, or are all of them headed for disaster?

For his part, Jake has to reconcile not only his growing feelings and physical attraction to Chance, but also the promises he and Tor made to each other. They rebuilt their own relationship in the wake of mistakes neither one of them wishes to repeat. How much communication and longing can one — or two — relationships take?


Review: It’s no secret that Bareback is my all-time favorite M/M book and that Tor & Jake are my all-time favorite M/M Characters. It’s the first book I recommend to new readers in this genre, so it goes without saying that I will read absolutely anything with these two guys in it. So, with that being said, I am confused and tragically unsure of my feelings after reading this book. It was a great story – I’m glad there’s another book in the works, and I’ll devour that book as soon as it’s released…but I am still dealing with a plethora of mixed emotions.

Cheating in a story doesn’t bother me. As a matter of fact, I get off on the angst and emotional death spiral attached to the infidelity. But, there isn’t really any cheating here; it’s agreed upon playing between two consenting couples. Or is it? Playing does not involve the heart, emotions, and love…at least not that I am used to, and I am so confused as to what to think right now. I don’t want Jake and Chance to be in love….Jake is in love with Tor…right? And what about Tor and Tucker…the twins…as Chance and Jake call them? They were almost secondary to the budding love affair between Jake and Chance. I am really, really confused.

So, I will leave this review for now and hold off on my final thoughts for when the final book is released. I am so freaking scared to read that book, but like a bad train wreck, I can’t avert my eyes. I can’t even begin to fathom where this storyline is going, and every possible plot that pops into my head leaves me wanting more or screaming “no”, so I’ll just have to sit back and wait….have I mentioned how much I hate waiting?

Overall Impression: I really liked it

*I purchased my own, personal copy of this book for review.*

    I know how you feel Susan. Bareback is a favorite of mine too. I love Jake and Tor so I’m really curious as to how this situation will play out. I enjoyed both books, but I’m wondering what these authors have planned for the guys.

  2. I’m excited and scared senseless of what’s going to happen to my boys.
