Something in Jake’s relationship with Connor is changing, and not for the better. The only thing that’s been growing between them recently is silence, and when Connor starts lying about where he’s been and slipping out of bed at night, Jake fears the worst.

Jake gets the surprise of his life when he finds out what Connor has really been doing. It couldn’t be further from what he’d expected. Instead of ending the relationship, Connor has been building up to taking the next step together with a huge romantic surprise for Jake.

The scare shows Jake what’s really important, and the ordeal might make them stronger and bring them closer together than ever before.

This story is one of those stories you think is heading one way but is actually going a completely different way. It is a short story but the emotions I think that abruptly Bakeer was trying to get across came through clearly.

Jake and Connor have been together for seven years. They were college freshmen together that started out as friends, moved to best friends, and then eventually they became more. Lately things have been strained between the two of them and Jake is starting to believe that something is very wrong between them.

As time goes on and their relationship seems to be put on the back burner to Connor, Jake starts questioning what is really going on between them and how bad things have really gotten between them. When Jake realizes that Connor has lied to him about where he is supposed to be and the fact that Connor has been getting home extremely late and sneaking out of bed each night, Jake starts to believe that Connor is having an affair. Jake is blown away at the thought of him cheating and prepares himself as best as he can to say goodbye to not only his lover but his best friend. Will Connor be able to change Jake’s mind when the truth finally comes out or is it really over between them after all.

This is a short story but I have to be honest and say the story completely grabbed my attention from the get go and did not let up till the end. I would actually classify this book as a bit of a mystery especially since I found myself questioning what was going on with Connor myself. I really enjoyed this read. It is the first time I have read a book by Bru Baker but I will definitely heck out more books by this author in the future.

Galley copy of More Than Okay provided by Dreamspinner Press in exchange of an honest review.


Hello, I am an avid reader of male/male books. I do not have a favorite genre when it comes to male/male books because I love all of them from romance, dark reads, paranormal, shifter, threesome, whatever I see that catches my eye at the time.

I read books about rock stars, CEOs, military, cops, and just the original plain old good boy types of books.

Basically when it comes to a book, I read whatever I am in the mood for at the time. So my tastes varies from day to day and sometimes even hour to hour.

Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.
