Ilhan and John are just a couple of ordinary guys getting started in this World. Ilhan is going to Uni and John is the caretaker of the complex they both live in. Ilhan is sweet and innocent, he has also been secretly crushing on John. John is not so innocent and finds Ilhan a bit annoying. Awkward.
This book is about support along with growing and learning about love. When Ilhan’s conservative parents find out his sexual preference, it was John that was there to save him. John is a strong character and it felt really good that Ilhan had him to lean on. As strong as John’s character is, he is also very admirable. With Ilhan’s innocence, John made them take their time. The build up or foreplay and the sex was really well written.
This book is very sweet and fluffy, it makes you feel good. From the goodness that radiates from Ilhan to the support that John gives him and the beautiful way that their story was written. Even for someone like me that doesn’t always enjoy the cotton candy books, I liked this one and am happy that I took the time to read it.
Ilhan started off on the wrong foot with John, and somehow he always seemed to stay there. When the college student hastily looked away from the apartment building’s hunky maintenance man, John thought he was stuck up. When he tried to get John to knock on his door by leaving his trash out for pickup, John though he was a messy tenant. All he wants to do is get John’s attention, but he always seems to do it wrong…
John’s always seeing the little Turkish twink strutting around like a little peacock, in his too-tight clothes, but it’s hard to ignore that perfect little ass, no matter how bad his manners are. He’s nice to the other tenants, John knows, so he must be cold to John because of his job as a “mere maintenance man.” Too bad, because John would love to see what’s under those clothes.
Yet when one of Ilhan’s more embarrassing moments brings them together, each realizes they’ve been mistaken about the other, and also, so right. And all the awkwardness between them is washed away…
But when Ilhan’s conservative Turkish parents come to Perth to visit, and find their son locked in an embrace with another man, the stress of their demands could tear the two lovers apart…
Lily Adile was born in Ankara, Turkey and then worked in other countries. She visits her family in Turkey regularly and travels to Singapore to visit the other family members.
