Blurb: Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it’s a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.

Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn’t dimmed Abe Green’s optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved.

For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.

Review: I previously reviewed this book here.

We met Abe as one of Spencer’s students in Strong Enough. He’s all grown up now and teaching. One night (his birthday) he allows Jason to pick him up in a bar. (Something he never does!) What was supposed to be one night ends up being another, then another then another until the next thing you know they’re practically living together.

Jason doesn’t do relationships. He’s divorced. A cardiovascular surgeon. Very self-involved and kind of a jerk. When he sees the beautiful Abe in a bar, he has to have him. But one night isn’t enough. And though he usually doesn’t do “seconds,” much less “boyfriends,” something about Abe calls to him and he can’t stay away.

**

This is my second favorite book in this series. I loved Abe so much. He handles Jason so well and yet stands up for himself too.

They have incredible sexy times, but also very sweet and tender feels, too.

I loved Jason’s ex-wife. I was so glad not to see the typical evil ex. She was his friend and helped him to grow. The kids are real, too. Not perfect, but not horrible trolls either.

I highly recommend this book and the entire series. It’s wonderful!

Review – Audio:  Ezekiel Robinson is a new narrator to me. He has a good sense of timing, I really enjoyed his interpretation of Abe – just the right amount of “young and funny”. I didn’t love his Jason as much, but it was still very good, and it was nice to have all the voices differentiated – including the women, with which he did a nice job. The sound quality was good and I enjoyed this audiobook very much. It was a great way to experience this book.

Overall Impression:  It was amazing

*I received a copy of this book from the author in return for a fair and honest review.*
