Silver and Gold is the first book I've read written by Devon Rhodes, and it definitely won't be my last! Although there were times I wanted to strangle Geoff with his shoelaces, I still liked him, and in the end, I really liked Geoff and Abe together.

Geoff is a middle aged man who is really just starting to open himself up to his homosexual feelings. I did understand why he was nervous and excited to try to rekindle a relationship with his old friend, but once he met Abe I kept wondering why in the world would he want anyone but him?

I loved Abe. He's fun and flirty and I enjoyed every word that was written about him. I loved the dialog that went between him and his friend, Kim, who also happens to be Geoff's employee. I think Abe would have been a fun character to create and write, because I know I loved reading about him. There were times I thought that Abe might have been too good for Geoff, but in the end I really liked them together. To me, this book had a more HFN ending than a HEA, but it still ended on a very uplifting and positive note and I definitely appreciated that!

I'm looking forward to reading more by Devon Rhodes. I liked her writing voice and I'm hoping to see more of Abe and Geoff in the future. I would love to see how their relationship develops as time goes on.

4.25 stars!

Brenda (b) Great Review Shellie

Lindsay I didn't care for Geoff that much. I liked Abe a lot, but honestly think he could have done better than being with Geoff.
Awesome review.
