Blurb: Two years have passed since that long, dark, night of despair and near death when English-lit geek Yancy Bell met dancing jock Curt Donovan. Now a couple living in New York, they appear happy and well suited to one another.
But appearances can be deceptive.
Yancy feels Curt is growing distant, and they barely see each other. At Juilliard, Curt has bonded with a new friend, Greg. Yancy fears his relationship with Curt is coming to a head. Meanwhile, Curt harbors a secret that could spell the end of Yancy’s love for him.
Yet neither man dares to confront his fears—or the other.
Will their fate be a code yellow or a golden opportunity?
Review: Code Yellow is the third book in Susan Laine’s series Heroes at Heart. I’m not sure how this would go as a standalone book as this one picks right up from the second book, Yellow Streak. Besides which, if you feel this is your type of book, you’d be doing yourself a great disservice by not reading the first two books.
We meet up with MCs, Yancy and Curt, as they are trying to make things work for them in NY, between school, jobs and their tiny apartment they share. We last left them moving to NY and Curt was on top of his depression and now starting at Julliard to study dance and works part-time as a bar tender.
Yancy on the other hand has now landed himself a full-time job at the New York Public Library. The plot line surrounds the horrible suspicion that came up by the end of the second book, is Curt cheating on Yancy? All the signs are there. Yancy is now trying to keep it together, even with thanksgiving coming up and the guys are hosting their friends and family in their apartment.
I am really in love with this series. While there was much less of Curt’s depression taking centre stage in this book, we actually see both Curt and Yancy develop a lot more depth. This is a relatively quick novella to read and the pace was nice and steady – I didn’t put it down until I finished it.
This is a wonderful addition to the series and those following Yancy and Curt’s journey will not be disappointed.
