Tony Quinn has a knack for figuring people out. He likes labels, likes to be able to put everyone and everything in tidy boxes. As a theater director, it allows him to run a production without too much drama. But when he meets Gentry—“call me Gee”—in a bar one night, he discovers that some people aren’t so easily defined.
Gee Parnell is unlike anyone Tony has ever met before. He refuses to conform—to Tony’s expectations, or to society’s gender roles. He’s sexy and flirtatious, unapologetic and unashamed. And Tony isn’t sure he’s okay with that. So he breaks things off and escapes back into his well-ordered life.
But then an attack leaves Gee bloody and bruised, and Tony realizes that he isn’t ready to lose him. Not only is the passion between them off the charts, but Gee shows him a different way of understanding people. However, an exciting new job opportunity means that Tony has to decide between hiding his sexuality and his relationship with Gee, and his newfound appreciation for the color and beauty Gee brings to his life.
I’m really enjoying the M/M books in this series. There’s something about the way this author structures her stories that really captures my attention and pulls me in. It saddens me that the last 2 stories were not a genre that I read but I’m more than happy with this book and book 1.
Tony Quinn’s whole life is the theater. His true passion is directing his cast to put on epic performances. In his personal life he doesn’t discriminate between male/female. He’s attracted to people and currently the only person holding Tony’s attention is the gender fluid and incredibly mysterious Gee.
Gentry Parnell lives life to the fullest and doesn’t care for gender norms. He’s immediately attracted to Tony and knows they have a connection. Oh, to have more characters exactly like Gee…he’s free, out, and proud and makes no excuses for it. LOVED Gee!!
Tony and Gee connect on a level both men don’t anticipate but Tony’s not as comfortable with Gee’s fluidity as he first appeared to be and circumstances drive them apart.
Better late than never both Gee and Tony must overcome their past and internal issues to get to their happily ever after.
I really enjoyed the pacing of this story. Like I mentioned Elyse Springer really has a knack for storytelling and this one just kept making me smile even though it tackles some pretty intense scenarios. I really liked the characters too…they helped to make this story really special.
I think most people who enjoy romance will enjoy these books. I can’t speak for books 2 & 3 but the two I’ve read have had phenomenal writing and fantastic storytelling. Absolutely recommend.
