My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is definitely one of my favourites in the Hearts & Health series although it took me a wee while to warm up fully to Callum.
That wasn’t because I didn’t like his character, in actuality I thought he was super sweet and geeky in all the best ways. It was more to do with how reserved he was with Ian.
I could understand it, there wasn’t anything irrational in why he was cautious, but I felt like Ian was open from the start about his situation and the processing he would need to get through and maybe Callum could have accepted it a bit easier.
Ian’s every action spoke about how he felt about Callum and where he wanted things to go and I was glad there was no bi erasure in this one. Ian is emphatically bisexual even while being totally in love with his Calico.
I also liked that Ian’s sexuality wasn’t an issue for Cal either, more his fears about letting himself be looked after by someone else. The tensions and conflicts were handled well and realistically and we get to catch up with some of the guys from the previous books.
All in all another great addition to the series.
