The story focuses on two men learning how to love and compromise, and most of all, recognize their own fallibilities so they can heal and find their happy ending. Cole Fenton is a character that it's hard to relate to in any meaningful way. His lifestyle is one most of us would only dream about...but honestly would never want. He’s independently wealthy...doesn’t hold a job; owns homes in Paris, Hawaii, Vail, the Hamptons, and Phoenix; has lots of "friends with benefits" conveniently living in each location. Mostly his time is spent traveling the world for months at a time whenever he wants, while indulging in his various interests and hobbies. It may sound adventurous but actually it's a life of extreme loneliness. He has only a few really "meaningful" friendships, and his only relative is his mother to whom he’s been estranged from for years. The absence of loving relationships growing up has left him damaged and he has adopted this flamboyant, "devil may care" lifestyle as a defense mechanism. Cole doesn’t really know anything about what real love is. Keeping everyone at arm’s length, he's never had a committed relationship. He says he’s too restless to ever settle in one place for very long and he becomes resentful of anyone who expects that of him. Somehow his "brokenness" is what made me love him so much once I started to understand him. Then we have Jonathon (Jon), Kechter who actually was not a great catch either. Cole and Jon are set up by one of Cole’s friends, and their first date is beyond disastrous. It’s fascinating to see Cole transform from a man cocooned in self-preservation, not permitting anyone to see his pain, to a partner who eventually allows his walls to crumble and lets his vulnerability show. Jon’s lesson to learn is that instead of trying to change Cole, he needs to set aside his stubborn pride and make the change within himself, and to bring happiness to Cole while making their new and fragile relationship successful. Although theirs is an unusual relationship, they both do work hard for their happily ever after, and what a delightful ending it is. ( )

Cole is sweet and just has this hidden persona underneath that he doesn't want anyone to see and Jonny (haha) He -this fine man- just doesn't know what hits him when Cole enters his life. They seem like an unlikely match at first, but some of the elements I encountered in this book were refreshing. Glad to see it wasn't totally repetitive like other books can be. ( )

Unpopular Review Ahead proceed with caution.! Spoiler Ahead!

Ha! I called it! here it comes… Its not the book its me. This book has so many 5 stars reviews and I went in with high hopes. Oh! Boy I ended up disappointed, I thought maybe it will be better on Audio, Oi! It made it worse. (returned the audio.)



I liked Trailer Trash and Promises but this I ended up not liking at all.

Why?

Cole - I really wanted to like him but I failed miserably, I did not like his behavior from the beginning of the story, maybe I would have understood him if we got his POV but we only get to was see him through Jonathan's eyes. We are told that he disappears for days weeks sometimes months without even a phone call to Jonathan my question is why? He doesn’t like to cuddle again why?



I wanted to know more about him but..…



Jonathan- he was just boring, I really could not get into his narration. I wanted to smack him at time and tell him to stand up for himself. And i did not fell the chemistry between the two.

This made me angry at both of them.

“I’m leaving for New York tomorrow.”
“You’re what?” I asked, stunned. “Why?”
“It’s just time, love. That’s all.”
“How long will you be gone?”
“I don’t know really. A week, I suppose. Maybe two.”
I resisted the urge to ask bitterly if he would be seeing Raul while he was there. “We’ve only had a few nights together since before Thanksgiving,” I said, trying not to sound like I was whining. “Do you have to go now?”
“I really do, love,”
I GOT up the next morning and went for a jog. When I came home, he was gone. That was it. He didn’t even say goodbye. I tried not to be hurt. I tried not to be angry. I did my best not to imagine him with Raul. I partially succeeded at the first two, but at the last, I failed miserably. I told myself over and over again that I was being an idiot.


The fade to black sex scenes, bummer! I love reading detailed sex scenes here we are told they went to bed and had mind blowing sex… Ummmm! Please show me, please!



And then this,

There had never been any pretense that our relationship was exclusive.
I had known about his other lovers from day one. So why did I care so much now?
We had been seeing each other for approximately nine months. In the first two or three months of that time, I had still seen other men occasionally. Cole had been out of town a lot, and I never knew when he would return. It hadn’t been a big deal. But at some point over the summer, I had quit wanting to see anybody else. It wasn’t that I ever made the decision to be exclusive with him. It wasn’t out of any false sense of faithfulness.
I simply didn’t have any desire to look elsewhere. I always knew he would be back eventually, and I chose to wait. It was that simple


Ohh! And there were no apologies, when MC’s behave badly I really need some serious groveling.

Nope not that simple, I could not get over that. ( )

I'm so glad that Cole got his own book. I had a bit of a soft spot for him from the very beginning. Not sure I wanted Jonathon to get him, cause I wasn't sure about him, but he's sure redeemed himself in my eyes now.

Again, fantastic characters. Interesting, sexy and worming their way into my heart. Thanks again for these great guys. ( )
