Jake and Benjamin. This is a pair. Upfront, I have to say it’s more of the flowers and roses type of story that appeal to women.
Jake was a scrawny college student who had nearly been beat to death. His sister gave him a card to their stepbrother’s boxing gym so he could learn to protect himself. He is a sweet soul that really needed to get some backbone.
Benjamin tried to throw him out of the gym the first evening he stood in the rain begging to come into the gym in the pouring rain. He promised to clean the gym and help with anything else, just to get lessons. Until he told Benjamin he has take masseuse classes, Benjamin refused. He did not tell Benjamin that he was his stepbrother. Benjamin was tough, built and a dream to look at and Jake was scared to tell him for fear he would be thrown out untrained.
I can’t remember reading this author in the past. This wasn’t a perfect book, but those are few and far between. That being said, this author construction was spot on. I felt the characters quickly. My heart heart from all of the gay bashing and I feared Jake would get hurt again. It made me cry in spots. It made me feel. It’s not a GFY and have no idea why that is in the title. So, good, story, great characters and brought out plenty of emotion. What more can you ask for than a good story. This is a a good book. I highly recommend it to those that like a little flower and roses type of romance.
When college student Jake is left for dead on the side of the road, he has one thing on his mind: Learn to defend himself against the men that gay bashed him.
And fight back or die trying.
At his sister’s suggestion, he tries self-defense courses. Little does he know when he asks the man to teach him, he’ll be guarding more than his body, he’ll be guarding his heart.
Aspiring MMA trainer Benjamin is on his last leg, literally. As a wounded warrior, he’s scarred from a broken heart that has nearly broken his spirit.
So when Jake approaches him for lessons and tells him his story, it touches his heart.
The more time Jake and Benjamin spend together, the more they realize they’re becoming best friends.
The more time they spend together, the more they realize they can’t live without each other.
The more time they spend together, the more they realize they’re falling in love.
But Jake has a secret, one that could change everything….
With my own novels, I like to give my readers all the hot steamy scenes they like, but I also write characters with a lot of drama.
