This is a decent tale, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't have even half of the angst or the emotional intensity that the blurb alludes to. In fact, that bit where on Dax's part it says, 'I *NEED* to tell him what his actions mean to me' and what follows from thereon in, isn't really very accurate at all - unless I missed a chunk of the tale, which I don't think was the case.

The blurb from Michael's POV is slightly more accurate, but again, minus the angst that the blurb alludes to.

Yes, despite what I've just mentioned, I did like the tale, though it was rather low-key and without much in the way of sex scenes. I liked the leads, I liked Michael's kid and his parents, but I did find it a little hard to tie in Dax's job within such a small community where people seemed to know everyone's business. For it not to come up at all wasn't realistic - and that's me in liberal London thinking this, never mind small town America where this tale takes place.

The bit of angst that was introduced? It seemed anti-climactic and a bit redundant, as did the belated mention of the bible, and TBH, it didn't really go anywhere or come across as being really integral to the tale. I think what further irritated me a bit is that at the point where Michael has his eureka! moment and mans up and is about to confront the source of his issue, said source is called Michael, instead of his correct name being used - yes, the 'baddie' underwent a rather confusing name change. I had to go back and re-read whose POV I was in, and who was actually speaking at that point in the tale, as I was rather baffled, and TBH, it was something that a beta/proof reader *should* have fixed,

It is a nice tale and it ends with the start of a HEA.

This is a great gfy story. What's not to love about a kindergarten teacher, a barman and a kid. However, having read the blurb I expected high levels of angst, maybe some tears, at least some deep revelations but they didn't materialize. It's like the blurb was written for a different book. That is not to take away from what is in all actuality a really decent read and I will definitely be looking out for Justin and Matt's story.

Dax hits a turning point after a life threatening accident. He has changed his life around and is starting again in Marshall as a kindergarten teacher. As a gay man he is unsure what life will be like in a small town. It’s here on his first day in town that he come across Michael and his young son.

Michael is a widower and is struggling to cope with his job as a bartender and looking after his small son. As such there are instances where he takes his eye off the ball and his child running off. It’s on one such occasion that he encounters a stranger who looks at him as if he is incapable of looking after his son. He later finds out that this stranger is Dax and lives on his street. After various bumping into each other the pair stop their initial thoughts of each other and start a friendship.

Through time their friendship becomes close with Michael relying on Dax to look after his son whilst he works the late shifts in the bar. Dax starts to have feelings for Michael but as a gay man he has learnt not to yearn for the straight guy as nothing could ever come of it. However when Michael makes a shock move and confession then their relationship takes an altogether surprising change.

Gay for you is one of my favourite tropes so I was interested to see how this would pan out. I did find the initial start was a slow burning but nice to read about small town life. I preferred the second half of the book but would have loved a lot more angst to be thrown in. For instance the way that Michael easily accepted his attraction to Dax. There was no soul searching and self-doubt that I would have expected. There also wasn’t much bigotry that I was expecting as well for a small town so this was more of a light and sweet read for me.

I should have read the blurb a little bit closer. I was so taken with the whole victim returns to the paramedic who saved him idea that I missed the part about the kindergarten teacher meets the GFY widower dad with a cute kid.

To be fair, I went back to the blurb, looked at the cover and read the description on Goodreads. For me, they all still suggest a dark, angsty, possibly supernatural medical drama - not a heartwarming small town Hallmark Channel story. As I’ve explained before, I tend to read m/m to avoid cute kids and white picket fence plotlines. This was really not a great choice on my part.

If you enjoy sweet, you’ll love Dax’s interactions with his small pupils and Michael’s son Jagger. You’ll enjoy Michael’s struggles as a single dad and the warmth of his family.

For a novel-length book, the paramedic/victim story suggested in the blurb is wrapped up tightly within a few pages and it really isn’t very central to the story. Instead, this is the story of Dax making a new life in a small town after recovering from his injuries. It is the story of Michael moving on after his wife’s death and struggling to manage as a single parent.

If you want a slow, gentle, emotional ride, this story works well. It isn’t the most believable GFY plot I’ve read, but it works well enough. I enjoyed the friendship between the two men and their relationship with their friends is entertaining at times.

I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review for Inked Rainbow Reads.
