About the Author

Cardeno C.—CC to friends—is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few awwws into a reader’s day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno’s stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review through Wicked Reads.

I loved this book! So far I have enjoyed all of the books in this series, but this one is by far my favorite.
Jason Garcia spent his young adult days playing by the book. He went against his true nature and lived the way he was taught to, but eventually he lost the battle. He's gay and no matter how hard he tried, he just couldn't pretend anymore. When he and his wife divorce he thinks that his chance at love, family, and forever are over so he sticks to an arrogant attitude, work-a-holic, and one night stand attitude.
Abe Green is the guy next door. He's cute, sweet, friendly, and caring, He's a teacher and all around fun loving guy. He has his values and he's comfortable with his lifestyle. He takes things slow and he knows what he wants.
When their paths cross and Abe decides to give in to a night of spontaneity they both have an amazing night and realize that it isn't enough. Soon enough that one night turn into more and Abe realizes that his his heart is involved. Jason is afraid. He isn't sure anything can really work and he's afraid of failing. Can Abe's loving, supportive ways convince Jason that forever can be a reality for them?
I read this one in no time because I couldn't put it down. Jason and Abe's romance is sweet, emotional, and real. They are hilarious together and the chemistry between them is great. With the blended family dynamic, this story is well rounded and very entertaining. This is one I will probably go back and re-read. I would recommend this to M/M reader who love a fun, sweet romance story. I look forward to more by Cardeno C.

"I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads."

I absolutely loved this fourth book in the series - maybe more than the other three, but they are all fabulous reads. These are securely saved in my to be reread collection. If you haven't read them yet, then give yourself a treat!

The author manages to get under the skin of the characters and give us such exquisite insight into their feelings, that it is difficult not to become part of the story. I found Angela's behaviour to be refreshingly honest and her relationship that is there with Jason and develops with Abe is fascinating. There were some wonderful moments of humour, some moments of pure lust, some of deep emotion. Great storytelling.

I've picked up and returned two books by this author, barely a chapter or two in, as neither caught my attention and I wasn't impressed with her writing style. This one drew me in solely because of the blurb, as I fancied the challenge of getting into a book with what sounded like an unpleasant and selfish character, and I found myself pleasantly surprised.

I now wonder if I previously read early works by the author, as this seemed far more polished, and she made an unlikable-in-theory Jason vulnerable enough for me to like him, and for his true character to show through. I didn't at all expect to like him, and I sort of expected to find Abe a bit of a non-assertive character, but both had strength and in fact, Abe was the stronger emotionally and in terms of maturity and confidence. The addition of the kids and the ex-wife only enhanced this tale and the ending made me think that the leads would make it, and that their relationship, other than on the money front, was equal in every way. The sex did start off rather one-way IMHO, but it worked for the leads and fulfilled a need in them both, and towards the end, it felt as if they truly trusted each other, as the sex became entirely reciprocal.

This was a great read.

Complimentary copy received from Netgalley.
My first reading of Cardeno C (which is a bit crazy as this is book 4). I had no problems reading this, it read as a standalone no problem for me. I really enjoyed this and would seek out other books from this author with no hesitation.
Jason and Abe meet at a bar and they are polar opposites of one another but somehow Abe gets under Jason’s skin like no other. Some of the things Jason did really frustrated me but I was happy to see that Abe always managed to bring him round. This book is full of sparks of humour that had me smiling quite often. The intimacy was quite hot in places too. A joy to read really. Both characters were easy enough to connect with and like. The ex-wife contributed a really great feminine angle to a testosterone filled book. I really liked the family element that runs through this book, it gave it another angle.
Thoroughly enjoyed and would recommend no problem.

I really, really enjoyed this story. While I did think that it lacked a little in terms of details, overall, it was a complete story.

Abe and Jason are great together. Their chemistry is both steamy and loving. They have a great dynamic and Cardeno really grows their relationship. What starts out as a random meeting, turns in to a great story of self-discovery and love.

Jason seems to have a lot of issues with relationships, Abe wants to be in a relationship. Despite their different approaches, Abe really helps Jason feel loved, worthy of love and helps foster a growing relationship between Jason and his family. In return, Jason allows Abe to be the sexual creature he's always fantasized about. Their sex is both steamy, hot, sensual and gentle.

I also really enjoyed Jason's family. Donny, Angela and Kristen are great additions and really help lay the groundwork for the rest of the story. I found that their interactions were realistic and helped the reader understand the psychological barriers that Jason had to overcome. I enjoyed that Abe was able to have a relationship with Kristen outside of Jason and that despite them not knowing about each other, everyone was able to mesh really well.

Despite wanting a little more about Donny, I thought that even with the little snippet of his issues, it really helped the story come to conclusion. The family dynamic was a great addition as well. All of the twists and turns in this story - in the end, it was about finding love, holding on to family and being there for each other.
I was given this in return for an honest review by Inked Rainbow Reads.
