Blurb: After spending the first part of his life chasing pretty girls, love has finally come to Ryan in the form of John, a tall, lanky, red-headed landscape architect with wide shoulders and a five-o’clock shadow.
For the first time in his life, love feels easy. Hell, he even ran into a burning building for John and his son, and he’d do it again if he had to. But telling his father and brothers “I’m gay. I’ve met a man”? That’s a bumpy ride he’s not looking forward to.
For John, loving Ryan is as natural as breathing. Now if only the rest of his life would fall into place. Dealing with his teen son is complicated enough, but with his ex-wife causing trouble and his daughter wanting to move in, John’s house—and his relationship with Ryan—threaten to split at the seams.
Would one month without a new surprise knocking him upside the heart be asking too much? If the sound of Fate’s laughter is any indication, the answer must be yes…

Review: This story gives you more of a taste of Ryan and John. They have finally realized that they were in love. Strange for two straight men but for these two it is perfect. Although with life nothing is easy but one must always strive for more. I received books one and two, and started reading book one when I realized that I had read it once before when it first came out.
It was when I was beginning to get into m/m romance stories and realized that I loved them more. However after reading book one yesterday I realized that it hit me even more now. I had such a great time reading about the guys once more. Then I started reading this story and even though I did want to smack the guys around and definitely John’s ex-wife, it was amazing.
Ryan is in love with John and is having a bit of difficulties with the idea of telling his family. Whereas John blurted it out to everyone. Things were looking up, even though John’s ex-wife is a total bitch especially to Ryan. Now on top of that they have John’s son living with them and his daughter wanting to. His ex’s new husband is a total dick who is so full of hate that if he fell off the planet no one would miss him. Here he is threatening to take Mark back home and Cynthia is no better. However when his ex needs help, who does she run back to. Yes you got it back to John.
Ryan seems to be put on the back burner when Cynthia and the kids come live with them. She is very pregnant and wants John back. John is at her beck and call, it just pisses a person off. The whole time Ryan’s family is not so happy with Ryan suddenly being gay and in love. It is going to take some time to get them all where they need to be. John realizes how Ryan feels, but he doesn’t know how to make him see that he is still the one he loves.
This story was just as good as the first book, if not even better. I would have loved to give it more than five stars. It has hot sex, feisty teenagers, gorgeous men, danger, and so much damn temptation that it has you begging for more. It gave me everything I could want in a story and so much more. I couldn’t put the book down once I started reading it. I even stayed up past my bed time to read about these two.
It has been some time since I have read one of Kaje’s books and I have to say that I am not disappointed. I loved it and look forward to reading more by this amazing author.
I would recommend reading this book.
