Gavin Mitchel has resigned himself to a lonely and unfulfilling love life, but his first meeting with Ryker Hudson is as steamy as it is random, which is precisely the way Ryker likes it. Their second meeting, while equally random, is beyond awkward.
Although a fourteen-year age difference stands in their way, a much larger obstacle is also blocking their path. Together, Ryker and Gavin must find the strength to overcome the roadblocks or bid farewell to their happily ever after.
I enjoyed book 5 in this series by AD. I have read the prior books and fell in love with all these men and their stories.. This is Ryker and Gavin’s story. I feel you don’t have to read the prior books in the series to enjoy this one but it helps to learn about the group of guys.
Ryker’s story tore at my heart in the beginning when he came out to his mom and she told him to leave. There is more to the story but you have to read the book to find out. Thanks to FATE, Ryker came out of a potential bad situation OK. His friends are great especially his BFF. Since then Ryker doesn’t let people in. One night stands are the way he goes. Until he meets Gavin.
Gavin is a one night stand that for some reason Ryker can’t seem to forget and he doesn’t know why.
Gavin is older than Ryker by about 14 years but there is a immediate connection. Gavin is a great character to read about. Even though he is an older guy , he wants to find is one true love but hasn’t had any luck in the past. He is lonely and has given up on finding love. Gavin and Ryker find out that they have something in common. They find out that Ryker’s mother is Gavin’s BFF. They are both taken back by this but decide to not tell her of the connection. Ryker also finds out that Gavin is the reason that his mother wants to try to put their relationship back together and he his mad. Even though Ryker and Gavin admit to each other that they are better off as friends , Ryker cant help feeling that there is something special about Gavin. Gavin want Ryker but doesn’t want to lose his best friend. Gavin has to decide if his feelings for Ryker are worth taking the risk. It was nice to read a story about finding the one who makes you happy and eventually you decide any risk is worth it to find happiness. Once these 2 get together the chemistry and love scenes are hot. In the end Ryker has his mother back and Gavin has the love he always wanted. AD writes stories that people can relate to and it makes you fell good when they get their HEA.
