Forty-five-year-old English professor Nathan Qells is very good at making people feel important. What he’s not very good at is sticking around afterward. He’s a nice guy; he just doesn’t feel things the way other people do. So even after all the time he’s spent taking care of Michael, the kid across the hall, he doesn’t realize that Michael’s mob muscle uncle and guardian, Andreo Fiore, has slowly been falling in love with him.
Dreo has bigger problems than getting Nate to see him as a potential partner. He’s raising his nephew, trying to leave his unsavory job, and starting his own business, a process made infinitely more difficult when a series of hits takes out some key underworld players. Still, Dreo is determined to build a life he can be proud of—a life with Nate as a cornerstone. A life that is starting to look like exactly what Nate has been seeking. Unfortunately for Dreo—and for Nate—the last hits were just part of a major reorganization, and Dreo’s obvious love for Nate has made him a target too.
While I was reading this book, I had a great time. Afterwards, there are lots of things that could have been better but it is an enjoyable read.
I liked all the characters. All of them. I liked how more and more just kept being added to the plot but it was the relationships that mattered the most. I enjoy all the kinds of love on display.
However, Nate was too perfect and I have no idea what he looked like except really attractive. He comes to this big self discovery but then we don't get to see him put it into play and for him to grow.
I love Dreo but we get to little of him. Why did he choose to join the mob really? The sex is hot but I wanted more relationship time in his new life.
There are dead ends to the some of the plots.
So, I liked it a lot and then I was irrated but still a very good read overall.
