Rating: 3 stars out of 5
Dustin gave up on being worthy of anyone’s affections a long time ago, drowning his problems in substance abuse and meaningless encounters. He has learned it’s better to avoid love altogether than risk the inevitable moment when it all comes crashing down.
Nicolae has neither eyesight nor excess, but he does have a wealth of family and intuition. He is nothing Dustin would have anticipated in a potential lover, but the more Dustin discovers, the more he finds himself willing to accept the risk … even if his conscience and the people in his life keep warning him away.
Okay, I spent most of this book wondering what the heck was going on. Nicolae’s intuition is right on the money but it felt like he was playing with Dustin and Dustin was just left without knowing what was going on or what he needed to do. They seem to develop a pretty solid relationship by the end but I felt like I missed all the important parts of their relationship.
The cover art by Written Ink Designs is nice but I don’t know how well it connects with the story.
