Blurb: For over ten years, Sidney Wilks and Grady Nash have devoted their lives to each other. With their relationship solid and thriving, they each turn their attention to their careers.
Nash loves his job as a day trader but hates what it’s doing to his body. The hours of sitting in front of a computer combined with his love of beer begin to take a toll on his aging body. Worried that he’ll lose Sidney to the hot muscled construction worker his partner works closely with, Nash decides to get his body back into shape, no matter the cost to his overall health.
After the death of his father, Sidney is so busy dealing with the years of hurt and betrayal at the hands of Jackson Wilks that he doesn’t notice the warning signs of Nash’s dangerous new lifestyle. When Nash’s sex drive falters, Sidney turns the rebuffs inward instead of looking at the bigger picture.
It will take the counsel of a close friend to open Sidney’s eyes to what is really going on, but will it be too late?
Review: This book is part of a series and should be read in order. Nash is starting to worry about his body image and thinking Sidney will no longer find him attractive. Meanwhile Sidney is trying to cope with how his father’s death has left him feeling and trying to reassure Nash that he loves him no matter what shape he is in.
This book and entire series is a wonderful example of a true relationship, showing us the ups and downs, the happiness and worries and the secrets that we will keep from each other to save our partners from worrying over the years. This book covers two years from Nov 96 – Nov 98 and shows how Sidney’s and Nash’s relationship is progressing, it shows us the love they both still have for each other, that the sex is still hot and that they have their ups and downs as well, a perfect story for a rainy day.
This story is well written and progresses well, the characters are great and their relationship is realistic. Even if you haven’t read the other books in the series you won’t feel lost reading this, because even though it does mention things that have happened in the other books you don’t feel like you have missed anything.
I will recommend this to those who want to read about… long established loving relationships, hot sex, suspicions and doubts and the everyday realities of relationships.
