This took me a while to warm too, unlike the others in the series, but by the time of the final chapter, it had given me the same snuggly fuzzy feelings of the other Portland Heat stories.
Brady came across as very mature for his age, bowed by being the main carer for his younger siblings after their parents’ death, but not broken but I didn’t get a sense of Evren for a while.
However, the little blog snippets started to give an insight into his head and the connection between the two men started to build up with a strange combination of sexual tensions and disappointments.
Interestingly in this one the sex is confined to oral and a bit of grinding with a serious slow burn and no full on penetration, but that doesn’t make it any less effective for demonstrating how in tune these two become to the emotions and sensitivities of the other.
There is no epilogue as such but the final chapter puts the two very firmly front and centre of a very HEA.
