Blurb:
After divorcing the woman he’d been with since he was seventeen, Nick Fuller is starting over. He owns the restaurant of his dreams and he’s determined to meet new people, find new passions, and experience life to its fullest. Easier said than done—that is until he meets his new neighbor, Bryce Tanner…

Bryce is all about a good time. He plans to show Nick how it’s done, help him meet a few women, and enjoy the gift of the single life he’s been given. But things don’t go as planned, and soon they realize they’d rather be together than with anyone else.

Neither man has ever wanted another guy, but there’s a connection between them from the start—a spark they can’t deny. They find themselves navigating an unfamiliar new world and dealing with unforeseen obstacles. Physical desire isn’t enough, and now Nick and Bryce are at a crossroads. They have to decide which way to go: the easy path they’ve always followed, or the one that's determined to trip them up at every turn.

I freaking loved it. This morning I contacted audible and the author on Facebook to inquire about audiobook 2. That 30 hour audiobook didn't feel more than 15hrs.
It's an excellent Book club type book. V audio and Anna and Pat and Stacey read it with me on a BR
I finished yesterday and V is 70% into the book. The rest finished ready


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments I'm on the fence - over 600 pgs long :)
I could suggest it to book club but they just read 2 of my picks, lol. I'll keep it in the back of my mind.

Kind of a spoiler - we have one in book club who won't read/finish the book if there (view spoiler)

It's 912 pages, 31 hours. I was on the fence too as I've had that book for 3 yrs after getting it on a kindle deal of the day for $1.99 when its regular $11.99

I LOVED IT. Loved it.

None. Nope, but war time food rations, scurvy from malnutrition, bleeding gums etc


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments awesome....bleeding gums ....sounds fabulous lol

ok so it would be a good choice - thanks :)


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments Ok - I started this one before I made dinner and got through chapter 4.

So far we've met both of the MC's. They both seem sweet in different ways. And we've met/heard about both Mom's and man do they sound like they are going to be pains in the asses. I hope I don't do this to my kids when they are in their late twenties/early thirties. (view spoiler)


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments Ok - we are watching season 5 of the Walking Dead - that might be as far as I get tonight. I have another book I'm working on too
I'll read more tomorrow....


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments I've made it to chap 8.

~Melissa~ | 5010 comments Oops lied - last two spoilers were from chapter 5 to the middle of Chapter 10. My bad.

Nick is going to go out and get bootie with Bryce after Bryce teased him for only being with one girl from age 17 yrs.


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments You're only a couple chapters in. You can read post #18 - spoiler was pretty general......

yes. He has a sweet soul. Now I gotta watch Bryce dirty him up :D

Different kind of story from Watch me break you from yesterday. This one is much sweeter

Ok. So brother Jamie gave him a lightbulb moment after the family picnic for Mitch's birthday.

A kiss and a punch is where I am at now :D

Seriously, I don't believe how easily Bryce is accepting everything. I don't get it. 48hrs later, a humping session?

No one is bugging the hell out? Bryce is talking like this is just normal? Bullshit!


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments I know right?? I'm waiting for him to have his freak out. Nick is at least freaking somewhat.

First mutual jerk off session... It was underwhelming to me.


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments hmmm.......I remember fumbling and awkwardness......

I couldn't sleep last night - I read to chap 25 and then I finished it up this morning.

Thoughts (not necessarily in order. for whole book til the end (view spoiler)


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments FYI - RRRC Meet n Greet OCT/NOV sign ups are open :)

What did you think? Riley Hart aka Nyrae Dawn has such inconsistency in her writing, I don't know about her


~Melissa~ | 5010 comments I liked it but not as much as Collide. These are the only two I've read by this author. This was probably a 3 to maybe 3.5 but I don't think I'd round up.

Nothing earth shattering here.
