Successful fashion model Denver Carlisle is finally living on his own. He’s got a new apartment, a neighbor who has a problem shutting his blinds, and a local bakery with an owner who makes his knees weak. It’s raining men, and Denver hasn’t gotten any in a long time. Going out on a limb, he asks Ethan Monahan out and resorts to a little exhibitionism for his neighbor. Only to be turned down by both. That’s a first.
Ethan Monahan runs his own bakery and has a new neighbor who walks around naked. The latter is a little too distracting. When his naked neighbor turns out to be none other than model Denver Carlisle—and the customer who asked him out—Ethan tries to make amends. In a purely friendly way.
Friendship leads to more, and both men find themselves in over their heads with emotions and compromises. Denver has trust issues that could span the Sahara, and Ethan is a product of the foster system with a chip on his shoulder and a serious wariness of those with money. There’s only one way to reconcile their issues: work together.
This was a good read. It took some time to build up to everything but once the story got going it was truly a wonderful read. So you just have to stick out through the first bit of the book to get to the good parts.
Denver has never lived on his own so it was taking him some adjusting not having his twin around all the time. He wanted to find his forever person also but just not had the luck in doing so yet.
That is until he meets Ethan. Ethan owns a bakery that Denver goes too and to Ethan’s surprise Denver is the new neighbor that likes to walk around in his birthday suite.
These two men become friends and from that friendship they lead up to a slow burning relationship. But with the relationship comes the issues that both men have. Both men have things to work through in order for them to have a successful relationship. It is not a walk through the park for them but they work together and eventually they get to where they both want to be…..togther. The sex between these two men is HOT also!!!!
This whole series has been amazing and this book was icing on the cake. I love a friends to lovers read and that is what I would definitely classify this book as. I believe friends to more makes the relationship so much stronger and these two men was definitely made for each other. Another amazing read.
