A big welcome to RJ Scott as part of her review tour with Signal Boost Promotions for Today.
I loved the first book in this series, and book two didn’t disappoint. I already liked Eric after meeting him in book one, and enjoyed finding out more about him in this story. I thought the author handled Brady’s DCD (developmental coordination disorder) with sensitivity, and I felt for him as he lived with it, and his constant battle to not let it get in the way of being a dad to Maddy and Lucas.
The characterisations were brilliant, and came across as very real, which is something I always know I’m going to get in a book from this author. I thought Maddy and Lucas felt realistic for their age, especially in Lucas’ case with how obnoxious twelve-year-olds can be, yet sweet and protective too.
I loved how Eric and Brady are able to both help each other deal with their issues, as it puts them on an equal footing within their relationship. I also liked how Eric asks Brady intelligent questions, wants to understand his DCD, rather than being put off by it, and is up front that he wants a relationship.
The supporting cast was great. I enjoyed catching up with Ash, Sean, Leo, Adam, and Mia from Single, and meeting new characters. I particularly liked Spencer, who is a very good friend to Brady. I liked how he takes Brady as he is, with no judgement, and encourages him to follow his heart.
I liked Jason as soon as he showed up, so am very happy that the next book in the series is his and Leo’s.
I’d recommend Today to readers who enjoy contemporary romance with well developed likeable characters, a great supporting cast, and a story that keeps you turning pages. 5 out of 5 stars.
When the world labels a man and judges them blindly, is it possible to ever find love?
Firefighter Eric is on the front line, battling the threat of nature’s destruction in the California grasslands alongside his CalFire team. Focused and calm, even in the direst of situations, he has a strong affection for his fire truck, loves his career, and has best friends he can rely on. All he needs now is love, but that seems to be impossible to find. At his friend’s wedding. Eric falls in lust at first sight with the shy, slim and sexy Brady, even if Brady isn’t the type of guy he usually goes for. What Eric longs for is an equal in his bed, not a smaller guy who might want Eric to role-play big strong firefighter every time they have sex. He wants to find someone he can be vulnerable with, someone who will love him for his soft heart and quiet ways.
Brady’s life plans grind to a halt when his niece and nephew lose their parents in a tragic accident, and he becomes a dad overnight. His Developmental Coordination Disorder rules his life, but he fights both DCD and the fears that chase him every day, to give Maddie and Lucas a home. Agreeing to go to a friend’s wedding is a decision he regrets long before he even gets there. But, he refuses to give in to his fear, even if he might do something that makes him a target for people’s comments and laughter. Meeting Eric, a huge man with a gentle voice and a flair for chivalry, he falls hard. Now, if only he can let himself get past his panic that Eric would never want someone like him, then maybe he could fall in love for real.
