Lucky Tyler Holloway has never felt particularly lucky. Frankly, he’s as regular as can be. He works construction with his brothers, loves his small-town life, and shares a close bond with his family, especially his grandmother. Okay, so maybe he has a few secrets in his closet, like his bisexuality…and that other thing he doesn’t talk about…
Grayson ‘Saint’ St. Claire has it all: a dream job in LA, money, freedom. Saint doesn’t do attachments, which is just the way he likes it. Still, he’d be lying if he didn’t admit he missed his deceased parents, the only family he had… Until he gets an email from some guy named Tyler, revealing the existence of a grandmother he’s never met, prompting Saint to drop everything and drive across the country.
Saint and Tyler couldn’t be more different. Tyler dislikes Saint on sight, but there’s something about Tyler that gets under Saint’s skin. It’s not until they get to know one another that everything begins to change for the better. But the Holloways and St. Claires have secrets, their pasts tied together in tragic ways. With the odds stacked against them, Saint and Tyler have to face the fact that love alone might not be enough…
Something About You by Riley Hart is the story of two whose lives are intertwined. Lucky Tyler Holloway is the small town hero who helps everyone in town but is especially close to his grandma Helen and her best friend, Alice. Helen confides in Tyler about Alice’s grandson and takes it upon himself to contact him.
Grayson St. Clair had no idea his grandmother was still alive until he receives an email from Tyler. He tries to ignore it and keep going about his life but in the end, decides to go and meet her. His bond with his grandma Alice is instant but not with Tyler.
-Small town. I felt that sense of togetherness that comes from living in small-town America. Tightknit families and friends.
-Relationship development. It wasn’t rushed and moved at a natural pace.
-Bi and POC representation.
-The secondary cast. I loved all family members and Sienna, Tyler’s best friend.
-I’m a sucker for heartbreak, and this book made me cry. What occurred made sense but it didn’t make it easier.
-Chemistry. Tyler and Grayson were on fire!
Although I’m typically not a fan of series with established couples- I’m praying there will be more Lucky and Saint. Without giving any of the end away, all I’ll say is: this story can’t be over. That was a huge decision that was made by one of these men.
All in all, this was a lovely story about family, friends, self-acceptance, and following your heart.
