Falling in love is easy. Staying there is the trick in this third book in bestselling author K.A. Mitchell’s male/male Ethan & Wyatt trilogy.
Life doesn’t come with a syllabus.
Ethan knows firsthand that long distance is hard on love. If Wyatt is spending his summer at an internship in Pittsburgh, that’s where Ethan will be. Even if it means inventing his own career goal just to find a reason to stay with his boyfriend. He didn’t expect they’d be living in a hot, crappy apartment, with work schedules that keep them apart more than together.
Wyatt’s past has taught him to keep his head down and focus on living through the day. Loving Ethan has him looking to the future for the first time; he’s just not in as big of a rush to get there. It’s hard to trust in happiness when life has been busy kicking you in the nuts.
Together they’re getting the hang of real life, when a new responsibility for Wyatt throws everything off balance. Ethan’s doing everything he can to prove he’s in this forever, while Wyatt is torn between a future with Ethan and a debt to the past. Too bad they didn’t cover this in college.
I think anyone who is invested and in love with Ethan and Wyatt will really love their happy ending story. I know I did. I think what’s perfect about these stories is the way K.A. Mitchell shows how Ethan and Wyatt are growing together as a couple. Both men are incredibly young but you know from Book 1 that what they have is special and necessary.
In Relationship Status Ethan and Wyatt are still working and going to school. Stress and limited time are a part of their lives but they always come together and connect.
I liked that the author gave us a snapshot of what life would be like for Ethan and Wyatt on their own. I thought including Wyatt’s Uncle a little more in this story really solidified the sense of “family” in this book that wasn’t so apparent in the other 2 books of the series. I loved Wyatt’s love for his Uncle. I loved how watching a kid go from no family to a pretty solid family foundation.
Wyatt and Ethan are as cute as ever in this book. Ethan’s love for Wyatt is steadfast like always. And Wyatt has grown so much and seeing him realize that Ethan isn’t going anywhere, is beautiful. And FYI…the sex is still smoking between these two.
Perfect ending for these two…really enjoyed it and I absolutely recommend.
