My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Ed Davies’ style of writing just makes me happy. His books are usually low in angst, drama free and just a generally all round lovely relationship with a wee bit of spice to stop them being overly sweet.
This one, the first full-length story in his new series, a spin-off from the Significant Brothers, was a delight. Ed handles the potential dramatics from having a sex worker as one of the MCs with consummate ease.
Kevin never feels like his job is there for effect only, his escorting is his way of life and, while it might not be an ideal situation, it’s one he’s chosen to manage the best he can.
I loved the meet-cute in this book, I loved Darren’s character and I’m glad to hear he will be in book two, along with Adam, our other ranch hand escapee.
Charlie was such a sweetie too, principled and straight as an arrow in character, but utterly lost at how to move on five years after his boyfriend’s death. And a big shout out to his dead boyfriend’s parents, who were awesome!
All in all, this really is a feel-good romance with some great emotional connections and, in spite of the short time frame everything takes place within, it never felt like insta love to me.
