New York City Vice Detective Evan Cerelli has lost his wife, the only person he ever loved and slept with. He’s trying to get on with his life, build a life for his children. Former Homicide Detective Matt Haight is a ladies’ man, all sex/no commitment. He’s depressed, having a midlife crisis, and not sure where his life is headed.
The two find friendship in the bottom of a shared bottle. When the friendship turns to love, it shakes two straight men to the core and flips their lives inside out. Kids, families, careers that are not gay-friendly — can all the love in the world overcome the obstacles to faith and fidelity? via Goodreads
I totally enjoyed reading this book for a lot of reason. The writing was exemplary and the characters are very, very interesting – unexpected but interesting. I’m not really buying the “suddenly gay” stuff between Evan and Matt but I’m a firm believer that you cannot choose who you love. Really. Harhar.
I loved how realistic the sex scenes were written as well as the issue with Evan’s in-laws. I’m glad that Tere Michaels didn’t go that way trying to make a fairy tale ending. I thought the ending was just perfect as it is.
This was a rather relaxing and feel good book that will make you smile wistfully and believe in love and second chances.
