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.

FedericaSometimes when you like a book, you like it so much, you just don’t know where to begin to describe how good it is, but I have to tell you, so…
First of all it’s a Riley Hart book.  I’m very addicted to her books and this time, she gives us a double GFY story!   And I really can’t ask for more than that – it’s one of my favorites.
Nick after his divorce, decides to live on his own, he rent a house with a shared yard. He owns a restaurant but is very lonely and reserved. He married very young to his first love and when his wife left him for another man he was devastated.
Meanwhile, Bryce is a very likeable guy, very open and friendly. He has an ex girlfriend, but he hasn’t told his parents yet that they had split up, because he didn’t want to disappoint them again.
He was always undecided about what to do with his life, both in work and in relationships.
He loves motorbikes and is a mechanic.
Each has a big family, but are very different from one another.
When they first meet, the friendship is very easy and natural. They are very different and Bryce tries to help Nick to loosen up a bit and enjoy his new freedom.
But it seems so good to be friends, that they begin to spend all their free time together.
Until one day Bryce’s brother tells Bryce that he and Nick seems more like a couple than friends.
At first, Bryce finds it hard to accept, but then he decides to face Nick and talk about it.
Nick is even more confused and shocked, but then they decided to try and see what there is between them.
Maybe you can think that for Bryce, it wouldn’t be so easy, but his reaction are perfectly in line with his character.  He is very easygoing, so he throw himself in, without thought, as always – that was maybe due to an aneurisma that he had and nearly died from.
His family are very accepting, they aren’t homophobic, but they doubt that this time it will be any different, he gets bored with things so easily.  What if they are right?
But what if maybe, he found the only thing, the only person, who is IT for him?
Nick’s family is another story all together – his mother can’t accept it.
Together they will face family, doubts, and a completely new way of life.
The story is really simple and very sweet, with a very low angst and two wonderful MCs.
It was a very enjoyable read, romantic but also sexy.  I’ve got to tell you that the episode in the sex shop was very funny and I read that scene twice!
If you haven’t read any of Riley Hart’s books yet, you have to read this one, it’s perfect and if you are already a big fan?  Read it!  You won’t be disappointed!
