Finally going from fake-boyfriends to the real thing, Spencer Cohen and Andrew Landon are trying to take things slow. They know what they have could be something special and despite the flammable sexual tension, they don’t want to crash and burn.
Spencer is learning to open up, sharing the secrets of his past with Andrew. Afraid to put his heart on the line, yet seemingly unable to stop it, Spencer knows he’s falling in love with him. Andrew is petrified of leaping in blindly, yet it seems the slower they go, the faster they fall.
As they navigate their new relationship, Spencer worries Andrew will freak out when he takes on a new client. But it’s not a normal case and Spencer soon realises things are not what they seem. When things take a downward turn and they work together to help the client, Spencer and Andrew need to decide if they’re ready for the next step.
I really loved the first book in this trilogy and the second book was just as lovely. It picks up pretty much immediately where the first one left off, so yes, you do kind of have to read these in order.
Spencer and Andrew are both just super adorable and there were several times where I “oohed” and “aawwed” just because of their adorableness. I loved that they were allowed to grow as characters, both individually and together. It was enough character development to ensure that they never got flat but not too much so you felt like they got completely different. I genuinely cared for these characters and it was wonderful to follow their story.
The plot was fun and entertaining, with just enough twists and turns to keep it interesting. Spencer and Andrew’s relationship was allowed to evolve naturally, with ups and downs, but not with those endless complications that some romance books seem to have. Not all the plot is focused on them either, some is focused on other characters which provides perfect breaks to keep you interested in Spencer and Andrew.
Do I recommend it?
Yes, I do.
