I read the 3rd book 'Come What May' and loved it. Decided to go back and try the first book in the series. Found it slow moving and ended up skipping chapters, before giving up.
A. M. Arthur writes as if she knows her way around the male mind. That is no small accomplishment. Many female writers of male to male romance don’t seem to have a clue about the sometimes bizzarro world of the male psyche. What is equally worse is that they often get the physicality of male romance all wrong when they create the gay male version of the straight lover that their female readers would want to have. There were only a few times when Miss Arthur fell into the use of the romantic fiction tropes so often overused by female writers of gay male romance.
The trick is to keep it simple as that best reflects the most common mentality of a twenty-something gay male. Ms. Arthur does that and still is able to create characters that are compelling and fun to hang out with.
It is a good story and it is the first in a three-book series. I very much look forward to reading me to others.

Very cute story. Very little angst. A coming out story, with its challenges. I might continue to read the other books in the series of the price goes down. I think there a bit on the pricey side. Most books are I guess with the price increases 😡the narrator did a wonderful job!
