Bran Kendrick never expected to fall in love. He’s asexual, after all. What chance does he have of finding someone who’ll see past that? So when Malachi Warren catches his eye, Bran tells himself his crush will pass. Malachi disagrees. He has been attracted to Bran for some time, something he is delighted to find Bran reciprocating. They begin to date and feel their way through an intimate relationship that meets both their needs.
Suddenly Bran finds himself juggling a new boyfriend, a demanding job, and a college degree he’s not sure he wants, but he couldn’t be happier—until a series of seemingly random accidents befall Malachi. When they escalate, Bran realizes someone is trying to take away the best thing that ever happened to him, and he must scramble to keep Malachi safe while they search for the would-be killer.
Bran Kendrick falls in love and while he’s falling, he’s thrust into a plot that has his new boyfriend fighting for his life at every turn. This is the adventure Bran never thought he’d have. This was something about the book I had no idea I was going to get into. You know what? It was fun!
It’s fun and kind of all over the place. At the core, it was about two boys learning each other, falling in love, and then it was the adventure. There is a lot of sweet, a lot of silly. There’s a whole lot of kissing. There is also the fact that Bran is asexual, and while it might seem that it would be a big issue, it kind of isn’t. I think that’s what I liked most about the book. Bran chooses really well in Malachi.
Everyone chooses how to express themselves with their partner, how to show their love and affection. Everyone has their own limits to what they are comfortable with. Malachi is open and honest about what his needs are, and so is Bran. While their initial conversations and getting to know you stage are a bit uncomfortable for Bran and Malachi both, they are open and honest with each other. It was so refreshing to read those open conversations. I love that! But once they are comfortable with each other the story well all out on the mysterious “accidents” that were happening to Malachi. As things escalate, and danger ensues, the boys grow closer.
I really enjoyed myself. There was lots of smiling, lots of laughing. I loved the side characters. So if you want to read something that will lift your spirits, give it a try. I’m glad that I did.
