Jamie’s life is one big financial mess, and it really isn’t his fault. However, the last thing he expected to find in the library was a Good Samaritan. He might have been suspicious of Guy’s motives at first, but it soon becomes apparent that his savior is a good man who has been lucky in life and is looking to pay it forward. Guy being gay is not a problem. Jamie’s not interested… or so he thinks.
Guy is happy to help Jamie, and the two men get along fine. But when Jamie’s curiosity leads him from one thing to another, Guy finds himself looking at the younger man with new eyes. What started out as a hand up is now something completely different….
Step by Step by K.C. Wells
I’m not normally a fan of an age difference but this really worked for me.
Jamie is nearly 21 and struggling to put himself through college.
The college fund his parents had for him has been used for his parents long and messy divorce.He’s just lost one of the three jobs he had and is behind with his rent when a kind of Knight in Shining Armour steps in.
Guy is 38 and has a very comfortable life.
He offers Jamie a room in his home, wants to help with bills and tuition and genuinely wants Jamie to get the best out of life.
You might be forgiven for thinking this was just a bit unbelievable but somehow it wasn’t and I think it’s because Guy is a good man…I mean a really good man.There was no creepy ulterior motive about Guy’s proposal.He had been in a similar situation when he was young and someone stepped up to help him and he wants to repay the favor.
Guy is upfront about his sexuality.He’s gay but has two grown up children around Jamie’s age from a relationship when he was young.Jamie is straight and hasn’t had much time or inclination for sex.
There is no insta lust here.
They become friends and develop a mutual respect for each other.But gradually things change and their relationship develops at just the right pace.I don’t think this book it about being labeled as gay, straight or bi…..it’s a story of two men who connect emotionally and then physically.I enjoyed their friendship just as much as their sexual relationship…
…which was smoking hot!!
Some brilliant supporting characters, especially Ryan and Cole…….I so want their stories.The Epilogue giving teasers about Cole was very intriguing. I’m hoping his story is next if there is going to be one??
Talking of the Epilogue….I’m not normally bothered either way about one but this was just perfect.
A recommended read, even if you’re not a fan of an age difference I think this one might convert you.
