I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I don't know much about Canadian common law so it was interesting to read about and learn about how it was in Canada as opposed to what I know about in the States.
Felt really sad for Stephen, he appeared very unlucky in love. I just felt really bad for him because inevery relationship he was getting the bad end of the stick and he didn't even put up much of a fight. Then he meets Myron and it just seems too good to be true and it is when Myron becomes sick. That was also when my tears started because Stephen had finally seem to have found his one true love and they had an amazing twelve years together and then it all just ends. Stephen just spends three years mourning his husband. It's all very heartbreaking to think about.
The first glimpse for readers of Stephen into the dating pool was a bit interesting but at the same time worrisome because of Phillip, with his unwanted attention. The authors voicing Stephens worry managed to also place worry in me for him. I was hoping Carson would make a move on him at his second meeting but I did like the build up the author had going. Stephen oddly enough came off as someone I didn't think I would like because he seemed like one of those people who couldn't be independent and always had to be in a relationship. But oddly enough as I continued reading I found him to be a lovely character. He's comical, he's hopeful but at the same time down to earth, he knows himself well; his weakness and strengths and he tries to better himself even though he's a bit hopeless.
Carson hitting on Stephen was pretty sweet especially when he handed him his number. A little cliche and all but still sweet.I loved that he was a bit persistent and forceful with Stephen. I loved his alpha-ness and that he wanted to help Stephen move on.
The sex between Carson and Stephen came off a a little painful...there didn't seem to be any prep work. They were
just shoving it in after lubing up.
The ending was really romantic. I loved how spontaneous Carson was. It was wonderful reading the change and adjustments they made for each other. I would have liked to have seen the story from Carson's POV just to get his take on everything and what his feelings were but otherwise I don't think there was anything that could have made the story better. I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this author in the future.
