Publisher's Summary

Alexander James Noble is a gender-fluid gay man who gave up on finding Mister Right a long time ago. He's not asking for much, though. He just wants a guy who loves all of him and appreciates his feminine form too.
At the local LGBTQ center where Alex regularly volunteers, he meets Dal Sayer, an officer of the Milwaukee PD. Because he's been rejected one too many times, Alex doesn't trust the huge cop and the interest he shows in him, but once Dal sets his mind on something, he goes all out. Pushing aside his preconceived notions, Alex opens up just a little and soon caves.
From their first date - while dealing with his father's failing health and his parents' demands for him to settle down and have children - Dal never takes his eyes off his goal of making Alex his. But proving to Alex he isn't like all the men who couldn't see him for who he truly was and only wanted to hide him away is harder than he thought.

The subject of gender-fluid was a nice concept

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Yes unfortunately as with the other books in the series it often breaks off almost mid-sentence and then starts the next chapter. Interrupts with the flow of the book the characters needed a lot more depth to them as well. It was nice to catch up with the characters in the previous books. Alex's sister arrives unexpectedly with no real explanation as to why several years has gone by with no contact?
I found this a bit far-fetched for the author to not explain the reasoning behind this. The gender-fluid aspects of the story was well written. I didn't like the narrator, the use of different voices for the characters very irritating especially Dals parents. The blurb of the book gives the listeners a good understanding of what the story is about.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The most interesting part for me was reading about somebody who identifies as gender-fluid. Unfortunately the least interesting thing was the book in general.
