Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Not quite ready to let go of his last relationship, Liam hesitates when Grayson comes striding into his life. Knowing he needs to move on, Liam decides to give a new relationship a try. He’s attracted to Grayson’s hard body and kind but persistent personality. It all seems to be going well until his ex-boyfriend shows up, ruining everything Liam has built with Grayson.
Grayson was looking for something uncomplicated when he first met Liam. Despite Liam’s hesitation, Grayson was eager to make it work. But when the sex leaves Liam cold and distant, Grayson isn’t sure what to think. A relationship with the sexy sales clerk is anything but simple, and when Liam’s ex shows up uncomplicated is left writhing in the dust.
Can they move past the secrets Liam’s been keeping? Can Grayson find a way to unlock Liam’s sexuality, and more importantly, his heart?
This was a good story. Liam needs to break free of his ex-boyfriend but isn’t sure he will find the strength or resolve to once and for all push him away. Grayson is drawn to the beautiful man and persistently pursues Liam until they are spending multiple evenings together each week.
Grayson is a bit confused by Liam’s reactions to him, he goes from hot to cold and Grayson can feel the dismissal. Liam still feels shame for his desires and doesn’t think he can tell Grayson without judgement and just as they are starting to get comfortable his ex tries walking back in. I could see Liam’s fear when he was scared that he was going to lose Grayson but had trouble connecting with him as it felt he was guarded. I know most of the conflict in the story focused on Liam but felt we didn’t really get to know Grayson’s background.
The cover art by Angela Waters is really nice and I love the partial visuals of the characters.
