Scott can’t deny an attraction to his brother’s friend Tim. Lean, dark-blond, and blue-eyed, Tim is hot and hard not to notice—especially since Scott and Tim work together. Too bad the man is straight, and too bad Scott worries how Paul will react if Scott hooks up with his best friend.
Tim and Scott want to see if there’s a chance for more than friendship between them, but neither of them wants to lose Paul. Together, they must find the courage to follow their hearts and find a way to have it all.
I have to say I really did feel sorry for Tim when he featured in book one, and I was so pleased when I started to read this book to find out he was now free and single! I could understand Tim being frustrated in some ways with his friends, as they are all expecting him to be heartbroken with the split from his girlfriend….. however, nothing can be further from the truth.
Tim has noticed Scott, but he is he is wary of acting on his feelings, as not all his friends realize that he is actually bi-sexual only very close friends know this. He is also unsure as Scott is his best friend Paul’s brother, and their friendship is so precious to him that he will do nothing to jeopardize that. Unbeknown to Tim, Scott has noticed him too, but believes he is straight, so does nothing.
I had to smile as I read the book, as both men were eyeing the other, but were doing nothing to change things….. even though during a night out Tim got drunk, and was revealing some of his college exploits, which included the fact that he was happy to have some man on man action! Scott is now confused, but doesn’t ask Tim what he meant.
A boy’s night at a Bad Boys concert, has Tim and Scott sharing a hotel room, but while watching the band perform, they are both eying the other, and at last Scott takes the plunge and speaks to Tim. On their return to the hotel room, things really hot up between the two, and they realize they both have feelings for the other.
Once back home in Blue Point, the two start dating, but as they are both unsure of how the other feels, they keep it quiet, although a couple of friends notice. A wonderful day together results in them both declaring their love, and they decide that they must speak to Paul and tell him…… and their honesty with him went down like a lead balloon…… this left Scott feeling totally devastated and Tim sure he had lost his best friend. (I also have to confess here to being really angry with Paul, and I wanted to climb into my kindle and make things right).
Do Scott and Tim stand any chance of a relationship, in light of Paul’s reaction, especially as Tim does not want to come between the brothers? Does Paul come to his senses, and see what Tim and Scott were saying, that they were in love?
