Who wouldn’t want a nice cup of tall, dark, and gorgeous? Shaun Rogers does. He’s working at the front desk of a clothing-optional gay resort when Conrad “Con” Brooks walks in. The sweet, funny, and smart IT guy is there to install a new network and security system, and sparks fly between the two men from the start. Trouble is, Shaun’s hiding his sexuality from his grandmother, the only family he has left, and that makes him reluctant to take the leap with Con.
Then a man claiming to be Shaun’s absent father shows up out of nowhere, throwing Shaun completely off balance. His life spiraling toward chaos, Shaun soon discovers that his “father” is hiding secrets of his own. When things come to a head between them, it’s Con who comes to Shaun’s rescue—but the incident could force Shaun into a decision he’s not sure he’s ready to make.
This is book three in Shae Connor’s “Son Series”, but it can be read as a stand-alone with no problem.
Shaun is working for Jimmy at his clothing optional resort as the front desk clerk. He loves his job and is slowly owning his sexuality. He commutes from Atlanta because he takes care of his grandmother and doesn’t want to leave her alone.
Con is also a friend of Jimmy’s who is retired from the military and doing work in the IT/Security field. When they meet the two have an instant connection but… Shaun isn’t quite ready to admit he’s gay – especially to his family. And… the two men don’t live in the same town so it takes quite a bit of co-ordination for them to even have time to hang out. And… Shaun’s “father” has shown up mysteriously stirring up an entirely new controversy.
The question is, will Shaun admit his feelings? Is Con ready to settle down? What is the deal with Shaun’s “father”?
I really enjoyed book 2 in this series and I think this is even better! (Previous review: http://kimichanexperience.com/wayward-son-sons-book-2-by-shae-connor/)
I liked how little angst there was between Shaun and Con – they just moved slowly, navigating their feelings in what felt like a natural pace. I thought the “father” bit was a little melodramatic, but it did emphasize just how important defining “family” is – not based on blood.
I loved seeing the little bit of Jimmy and his boys – they seem so happy!
I recommend this to fans of Shae and the series and anyone looking for a nice, easy, get-to-know-ya romance.
