Despite the best-laid plans, life sometimes has other ideas.
Ethan Yoder has toiled to escape his small-minded farming community, and he’s finally earned his degree and made it to Indianapolis—where he lands a job at a pharmaceutical company and meets handsome and successful Marcus. Marcus introduces Ethan to the fun-filled life of his dreams—fancy dinners, courtside seats at NBA games, even a trip to the Indianapolis 500. But Marcus’s happy-go-lucky veneer hides a man frustrated with a job he hates and his failure at romance due to factors he’s only beginning to understand. Ethan still has his eyes on the prize—a lucrative career—and he must figure out how to hold on to one opportunity without letting another slip away. If he and Marcus can come to a deeper understanding, their road might lead to a happily ever after.
States of Love: Stories of romance that span every corner of the United States.
When Marcus and Ethan meet and the chemistry is there right from the start. Each have issues of their own that they each bring to the relationship. They realize their relationship is what they make it. It does not have to be what other people have, it can be uniquely theirs. I think that many of us can learn a very valuable lesson from that.
This is my first time reading a book by Logan Meredith and I am happy to say I came away very informed and impressed. Not only was I entertained by the book itself, I gained even more knowledge about the fluidity of sexuality. I knew about many under the umbrella but never new about Graysexual. I enjoyed the characterization and the way I learned a lot about gender fluidity.
Ethan and Marcus took me on this journey. I really enjoyed watching them learn so much not just about each other, but about themselves. I loved the group of friends they have that offer them support. It made me happy that they had someone to turn to when they were doubting their feelings or just doing something plain stupid and needed to be set straight!
I had no problem reading this book and I found it to be an easy read for me. One that both entertained and taught me something at the same time. My only complaint is that I do wish that the book had been longer.
I felt I could have spent more time learning about this couple and the lives they built beyond where the book ends
