Classic Ed, this has spicy and sweet in a perfect combination
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is classic Ed Davies, it has an almost perfect mixture of sweet and spicy.
I’ve not gone for full marks in my rating only because, for me anyways, I found I was wishing Colt was just a little bit older so that I could fully embrace the whole sexual domination aspect.
That’s not to say that there is a need for an age limit to know what you want in the bedroom, or on the sofa 😉 and they definitely had loads of chemistry.
But Colt’s vulnerability in the rest of his life and his leftover anxieties and fears because of his history gave me pause when it came to this one element.
Ed certainly never made the narrative feel uncomfortable or silly, Rain and Colt just worked as a partnership as friends right from the off and I ultimately got with the programme as their relationship developed. YMMV.
The rest of the story was right up my alley though. I really like this new setting and the small town vibes and close-knit friendships.
I liked how Rain found his own inner strength to know he wanted to take a chance with Cole and I loved how the latter dealt with the big dramatic moment and found his own way of overcoming his vulnerabilities.
The split in two family arc is also fascinating for me and I can’t wait to see how that develops.
