This is a previously released book with an expanded storyline of 9000 words, re-edited and featuring brand new cover art
Seth and Casey are two men who are desperately in love with each other. And they are terrible at communication. Well, Seth is anyway. Casey has been trying desperately to connect with his husband, but Seth’s own insecurities are making things impossible.
You honestly cannot help but feel for both men. It’s not a lack of love that’s tearing them apart,it’s a lack of understanding. Casey can’t understand why Seth is pushing him away and Seth can’t understand that who he is doesn’t depend on what he does for a living.
The author puts them in a situation that should have created a lot of angst and drama, and there was some, but not as much as I was anticipating. I liked the characters and how they worked through their issues but I wanted to feel a little more tension.
Their young nephew is a sweet addition to the story because I love the honesty that comes with kids. His fierce devotion to his uncles is adorable.
I enjoyed this story and had no trouble following it to the end, but it lacked something for me. A little more heat if you will. I’m not talking about sex, that part of the story is enjoyable, but I wanted to feel their frustration a little more.
Seth and Casey is a relatively low angst (considering the subject matter) story, that does require a tissue or two and I have no doubt that a great many readers will come away more than delighted with Seth and Casey’s story.
