[Book 1 of Keep Swimming Series]
BLURB: After his partner dumped him with a pregnant surrogate four years ago, Cary Whitmore was forced to play single parent while starting up a new business. With the dog bakery now semi-successful and his son healthy, Cary thinks he may be ready to date again.
Heath Cummings is trying his damnedest to get his charter boat service off the ground and dreams of one day soon being able to quit his job as an offshore driller. Paying off his dream requires making it through a couple more years, which means being open about his sexuality isn’t in the cards just yet.
When the two take their flirting to the next level, Cary wonders if he can handle another guy who might take off, while Heath has to decide if he can risk his dream of a laid back life—and giving up his long-held and much enjoyed bachelor status while taking on a child when being a father was never on his to-do list. Will they sink, or will they keep swimming?
I just can’t stop smiling after reading this beautiful story from Kade Boehme. It’s just perfection for me and this would be the first five stars I’m awarding the author. I just loved Cary, his son Gus and Heath! I mean, this was like the most adorable reads I’ve had in years! Kade just totally hit every spot here. There’s romance, the feels and just enough loving that would melt you like Hershey’s.
I loved the fact that the author didn’t feel the need to put too much drama in it because the situation of Cary (with his son) was heavy enough that they don’t need another complication to add in the bunch. I also adore Gus at no end – such a cutie and I loved how he cannot pronounce TH. It was just so cute!
I usually don’t like “bisexual” characters because I just can’t see them settling down even in a story but this one’s nicely done and there’s really that strong connection between Cary and Heath.
I also loved Heath’s bestfriend Kyle – like he’s just so adorable and I just want to read his love story already (wink! – I actually did – review to follow).
This is another beautiful story from Kade Boehme and I’ll definitely buy more from his future works! Great job!
Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
