I love Aidan and Liam too much to give up this series, even though I was pissed about their dialog in the previous story. Because of that discussion II love Aidan and Liam too much to give up this series, even though I was pissed about their dialog in the previous story. Because of that discussion I've been anxious to start this book, but I needn't have worried. Their relationship was perfect and nobody strayed (I cover one little niggle later) and even though that Louis guy at one point stayed in the room with Aidan and Liam for the night - thankfully there were no unholy thoughts from any of them xD
About the main storyline. Well, I liked the whole family history and Jewish history at first, but later on I got a little bored ((( It's just there was so much info, I was kind of lost in it - it was simly too much to handle at once. Maybe I'll reread it at some point in the future and it'll get easier for me.
And then again Aidan's sudden obsession with the family, even distant relatives looked kind of strange, seeing as he wasn't prone to it earlier, if I remember correctly. So I could somehow relate to Laim's... well not so fond reaction to it all )) Still it has some great emotional moments between the guys (like in the cementry) and I'm very grateful for that.
It was interesting seeing Liam's family too - thankfully it was not that extensive, but they totally made up for it in the temper )) The coming out to his mother scene was an absolute gem and I loved Liam's reaction to Aidan's statement and the car scene later was smoking hot )))
And here comes that niggle I mentioned earlier. When Liam first visits his mother he meets her neighbor - Frank Barrow. He's described as a pudgy guy nearing 50 with a shaggy beard, his handshake was 'limp and moist' i.e. not all that hot, to say the least. And at one point Liam realises Frank's coming on to him, but with rather innocent "your mother has some beautiful photos of you" or something like that. Suddenly Liam gets hard O.o OK, but not just that - later on he's jerking off in the shower thinking about that dude Frank and hating himself for that. And thats all. Frank appears a couple of times, but he doesn't play any role in the story, Liam doesn't feel anything towards him, other than slight contempt, so he could be very well left out of it.
And I'm just wondering why this scene was even needed? Don't get me wrong - I don't think Liam cheated even mentally, I don't think he loves Aidan less, because of it, but still it's rather unpleasant - reading about one MC masturbating, while thinking about someone else, not the other MC. It left a bad taste in my mouth and it didn't even bring anything to the plot or the character development. I know it's only a couple paragraphs, but what for?
But overall I absolutely enjoyed Aidan and Liam's steady and loving relationship and can't wait for the next book! :)...more
