Why would a happy couple risk everything when they have just begun to find happiness?
Daniel Deveraux and Brandon Matthews have just bought a new home. They have spent months working on their relationship. Things are finally going their way.
After losing a close friend, Brandon befriends a handsome young mover, Charles. Daniel and Brandon take the handsome man into their home to help protect him from his abusive father.
Charles, confused about his life and his sexuality finds himself wildly attracted to the two men. Unwilling to risk his friendship with Brandon, instead he finds himself in an endless cycle of failed relationships.
Will Daniel and Brandon allow the handsome man that has already found his way into their hearts, into their bed?
The angst is back and ready for round two!
I had waited quite a while before I picked up my first book by Blake Deveraux. I've since remedied that fact. This is the second book in his Men of Honor series. I got to visit with Daniel and Brandon all over again, plus meet a few new characters along the way. There's angst in this book, but it's well founded. Mr. Deveraux has characters who have been through the wringer and desperately need what we all need...love. I enjoyed how Mr. Deveraux snared me right into the story from the first page. I even tried to put the book down once or twice - the family does need to eat - and as soon as I could, I ran back. I had to know what would happen next.
There are parts where the story gets a bit telly versus showing and a couple of times when I wasn't sure who was talking. But all in all, it didn't take away from my enjoyment of the book.
There are wonderful surprises in this book. I got see more of Daniel and Brandon's past and seeing the issues made a lot more sense. Although some of the issues between them are more fleshed out, I can say that the sex is still smoking hot. The emotions run high. Mr. Deveraux writes scenes to scorch the pages, but in this book there aren't as hardcore of scenes. This is a good thing in that there aren't as many surprises for the casual reader. But, that also means that there is more tenderness in the love scenes. Either way, it's a great read.
I enjoyed the views of the secondary characters as well. Joe and Charles will have a great story to tell and since they are next, I can't wait. I liked the chemistry between them.
If you want a book that sizzles, then this might just be the novel for you. Enjoy!
