Doctor Gavin Addison’s marriage didn’t end on the friendliest of terms, and his estranged wife’s continual harassment has the local police visiting his home so often they’ve started calling him “the doc.” One of those cops, Officer Lex Turner, has a crush on the handsome doc, even though he knows there’s no chance the doc would ever consider dating a man.
A chance encounter on a crowded dance floor ends with both men in the same bed with the same woman—but with questionable results. When the doc wants to try that again, Lex becomes more involved than he’d dreamed possible as he helps his new friend navigate the kinkier side of sex. Knowing it’s just sex for Gavin, Lex finds it hard to keep his feelings hidden. But when Gavin finally figures out he has feelings for Lex that go beyond what a guy should feel for his buddy, will he let Lex convince him to take a chance with him—even if it turns both their lives upside down?
This is one of those I didn’t hate it/I didn’t love it but when I truly sit down to think about it the things that I didn’t like stand out in my mind more than the things that I did like. CL Mustafic is a new to me author and I thought this first book was well written with an interesting plot line. There were just a few things that just didn’t make sense, in my opinion. I liked the characters but the situations they found themselves in were just unbelievable to me. The threesome, the do-over, the almost immediate attraction/relationship, the homicidal ex-wife that kept getting away with her crimes, the radically homophobic mother, the pushover father…I just don’t know if it was too much or too much that just didn’t work for me, personally.
Dr. Gavin Addison is going through a difficult divorce from his crazy ex-wife. All he really wants is the divorce to be final so that he can move on. But he’s continually calling the police because of all the harassment he’s experiencing. Convinced that he needs a night out by his best friend Gavin hits the bar where he winds up taking not only a woman to bed but a man as well. And the man isn’t some stranger. Gavin immediately recognizes him as one of his responding officers to the many calls he’s made in regards to his ex-wife’s harassment.
Officer Lex Turner is an out and proud bisexual man and he can’t help that he’s crushing on Gavin. When the opportunity arises for them to hookup Lex jumps at the chance.
Lex and Gavin have a bumpy start of it…Gavin is really just awakened to another part of himself that he had no idea existed so coming to terms with that and his blossoming feelings for Lex takes a little time.
All of this is happening while Gavin’s ex-wife makes his life a living hell during their divorce. There’s also some other things that happen involving Gavin’s parents and Lex has his own things that they have to contend with.
Like I mentioned there’s a lot going on in this story and it was ok for my first book by this author.
