review 1: 1.5*I finished it and in a fairly decent time:) Nevertheless the whole book felt totally unbalanced for me. First of all the repetitive 'smaller man' 'younger man' were getting increasingly on my nerves. On top of that the important milestones of the relationship were told in hindsight, whereas there were sex-scenes amass, so much that from some point on I only skimmed them. The whole family-related storyline was rather disappointing. First the sister was happy and supporting, then she was on the side of the father and strangely absent. The mom who couldn't care less about her son in the past, but then suddenly evolved to the only one supporting him. And to top it all - the child-issue. It was every now and then pushed to the main issue, only to then vanish again. For me i... moret seemed as if the author lost the thread while writing.
review 2: I certainly enjoy reading this author. I read 'Falling' a while back and thoroughly enjoyed it. Since it has been a while since reading this first book, I thought the characters might be foreign to me; however, I was surprised that the characters and storyline of book 1 came back to me. In this second novel, Hank and Scott continue their love affair as Brian, Scott's brother and Hank's boss, and Kari make plans to expand their little family. What should be a joyous occasion for the family is overshadowed by the fact that Scott may have messed things up by trying to get Hank re-united with his family. As Hank spends more and more time with his unaccepting father, Scott gets pushed further and further back by Hank until the breaking point when Hank says (with face in his hands), "I'm sorry, Scott, I can't do it anymore."I must admit that having seen the movie "Between Love and Goodbye", I could only imagine the worst happening. I will say that the endings to this book and the movie I just mentioned are nothing alike. Enjoy! less
