Review: Avery, Gabriel’s brother’s boss, finds himself homeless after an earthquake. Gabriel is alone and lonely and offers Avery and his family a place to stay until insurance comes through and they can rebuild or find a new home.
Gabriel is attracted to Avery but unaware that Avery is gay.
The premise of this story is good. It is all in Gabriel’s viewpoint and thoughts. I found a few things missing I would have like more details on Avery’s split up, Gabriel’s parent’s death, how each man attend his physical needs beforehand. I would have liked more interaction between Gabriel and Avery.
Having said that the sex scene when they come together was pretty hot.
If you like natural disasters, troopers, caring men, cute kids and some sweet sensual man-sex this is for you!
