Falling in love was the easy part.
Lucky and Saint are head-over-heels for each other. It doesn’t matter that they met only a few months ago. It also doesn’t matter that this is Saint’s first real relationship and Lucky’s first with a man. They’re infatuated, happy, and excited to start their life together in LA.
It isn’t as easy as they thought.
Away from home for the first time and feeling like he has to compete with Saint’s experienced and cultured friends, Lucky is a fish out of water. Saint is still coming to grips with his recent loss while doing everything he can to keep Lucky happy. The only time things feel right is when they lock themselves away from the world—when they’re alone, everything is perfect.
But reality comes crashing back in to challenge them at every turn. Lucky and Saint need to learn how to stand together, as well as apart, if they’re to have any hope of making this last. They’re learning the hard way that “I love you” is when the real work begins.
I am so glad that Riley Hart wrote a book two for Saint and Lucky. The way book one ended with them leaving for LA together was a good ending but to have their follow-up story and to see not everything between them was just hunky dory makes their story that much more realistic and that much better. Riley Hart did an amazing job.
Saint and Lucky both knew they loved one another and that they wanted to be together but what they did not expect was for reality to kick in and I Love You not fixing everything.
Lucky is in for a huge cultural shock when he moves with Lucky to LA. He is used to his small town and even the noise and how much congestion there is car-wise is a shock for Lucky. Not to mention he has to figure out what he is going to do work-wise because he cannot and will not live off of Saint.
Saint is just happy Lucky is there with him. He could care less if Lucky had a job. Saint would be happy to just spoil Lucky and let him stay home constantly but that would never make Lucky happy.
Things start to settle when Lucky finds a job and starts to make friends of his own, but he hides the part of himself from his new friends that he is gay. Saint acts as if he’s not bothered by it, though he would much rather that Lucky was honest about them to the people he knows and works with. But he would never tell Lucky that.
Lucky tries to fit into Saint’s world with his friends and all but Lucky feels so out of place. All of this eventually boils over into their little bubble and it pops. Can these two men learn to navigate in an unknown world to them or is their relationship doomed before it ever really begins?
I love that these two characters did not have the happily ever after without any kind of worldly issues. It made their characters more relatable to me as the reader. Riley did an incredible job on both of these books. I look forward to more by Riley in the future.
