Saxon brings something special to the best friend’s brother trope
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
On the face of it, this isn’t “anything new” it takes a common trope – that of the best friend’s brother – but by the time it gets into the pages of this book, something special has happened.
Saxon’s Payne and Beau stole my heart from the off. There is an interesting premise for why Payne finds himself back home sleeping in his niece’s single bed as he goes back home to his brother’s to lick his wounds and it really worked for me.
Beau has been crushing on Payne, his best friend Marty’s older brother, for almost two decades, he’s dated but – as an author with a popular series – he’s tended to get lost in his own world too much for potential lovers to commit.
The roommates trope also works beautifully here because Payne comes to see just how much Beau actually means to him, he’s always treated him with kindness and never called him out on his quirks and their friendship is a joy.
As the story progresses, it just felt completely natural that they would come to be more than just friends, Beau provides shelter for Payne and the younger man is an anchor in Payne’s directionless life.
The sex is oh so delicious, Saxon really does have a way of showing the intimacy at the heart of the volcano!
And the bunch of guys who make up the Divorced Men’s Club are awesome, there is a real found family element there too. I can’t wait to find out more about them and read their stories 😁
This went right onto my Favourites shelf, loved everything about it!
