This is the third book in this series and I enjoyed it more than book 2, though not as much as book 1, which is still my favorite.

Jude is a famous country singer and he has been deep in the closet for his whole life. His last relationship was 6 years ago and he has been celibate ever since because he’s too afraid someone will out him….being famous and all. The only one who knows that he’s gay is his brother Blue and his ex-boyfriend. Jude is also very lonely.

When Derek enters Jude’s life as his new bodyguard, things get even harder.

What Jude doesn’t know is that Derek is also gay and he’s hiding even deeper in the closet than Jude.

 


 

A sudden threat from Jude’s ex-boyfriend makes things very clear between the two of them and they start jumping each other’s bones….in secret of course. These two were very hot together.

After a while, though, Jude doesn’t want to hide anymore. He knows his family will stand by him and he just wants to be himself. Problem is…Derek is not ready to leave the safety of his closet.

Derek pissed me off a bit. He was ready to let the love of his life go because he didn’t want to upset his family. I would have understood his reasoning better if he would have been close with his family…but he wasn’t. The only person who actually gave a shit about Derek was Jude. So yeah…

 


I enjoyed this story, but for me, book 1 was still better. It dragged a bit in the second half and it wasn’t as funny as book 1. I’m very curious to see who’s book will be next.

I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I was looking forward to reading this second one very much. Unfortunately, I didn’t enjoy it as much as book 1.

Maybe it was because I didn’t feel a connection with the characters. I liked Jamie but I didn’t really care a lot for Teddy. He wasn’t a bad guy, but he didn’t leave a big impression on me either. Maybe it was because I missed all the other crazy characters from the previous book. They were funny and they made me laugh. That’s something that I missed in this story, it didn’t make me laugh…

Now don’t get me wrong, I didn’t think it was bad and I still enjoyed reading it. It just didn’t meet my expectations.


Afbeeldingsresultaat voor that doesn't make sense + gifI also got annoyed with the writing a bit. I found it very irritating that they kept saying each other name while talking to one another. Whenever I’m in a conversation with someone and we are the only two people there,….why would I keep repeating that person’s name ??

 


So, this book is about Teddy, Wild Life photographer and Jamie, Animal Whisperer. Teddy needs a special kind of photograph to win an award he is after and a picture of Jamie interacting with wildlife, would be perfect.

Jamie has been blowing him off for some time now and being sick of waiting, Teddy jumps on a plane to Alaska to confront the man in person.


TGerelateerde afbeeldinghese guys don’t start off on the right foot, but they do jump each other’s bones pretty fast. After that, there is a lot of internal denial of feelings, because both men have relationship anxiety. It takes them some time to come to terms with the fact that they are in love, but all ends well.


Just like in the first book, the steam was very nicely done.

Like I said, I missed the humor, and I didn’t really connect with the MC’s, but that won’t stop me from reading Jude’s story. I’m very curious about his story….
