We pick up Fin’s story where he has settled into a routine of bringing up his 8-year-old sister Olivia, Working and studying. He has no time for fun or meeting anyone else and has convinced himself that all he wants out of life is to Bring up Olivia the best way he can. That is until he is called into work at the restaurant on his night off.
On the same night Noah is at the restaurant celebrating his ultra conservative fathers Birthday. Noah has done a good job of hiding his sexuality, until this fateful night he set eyes on the waiter named Fin. And is called out for looking at the hot waiter by his sister’s faience and all hell breaks loose.
What follows is a heart breaking yet heart warming story of both young men, trying to build a relationship and dealing with their personal baggage. Both reluctant to be fully open to the other.
Noah slowly comes out of his shell from being oppressed by his parents. Fin realises it is ok to take time out for his own happiness. Each of them do not believe their relationship will have a happy ending. Noah thinks Fin will lose patients with him slowly coming out of his shell. And Fin holds back on telling Noah that he is his sisters guardian, believing Noah will run a mile, not wanting to be tied down to a readymade family.
I really like the way Colette shows us the internal battles each character is going through. Both Characters are sweet and sexy, and made for each other. Neither one of them is more broken or stronger than the other, like is so many stories. I love the humour Olivia and Martin bring to the story. It is a heart warming story without being too soft and sloppy.
This is only Colette’s second novel and I am so excited to see how her writing journey develops.
Why I need you is the second book in the Why I left you series by Colette Davison. Even though this book is the second in the series it can be read as a standalone.
This book begins with Noah being outted to his family about his sexual orientation at a packed out restaurant on his dad’s birthday.
Then there was Fin whose parents had recently died leaving him to look after his younger sister, Olivia. Fin was working in the restaurant the night Noah was outted to his family.
This book is about the two worlds of Noah and Fin coming together, as a couple. I completely adore Noah and Fin they are just the cutest and they brought out the good in each other and helped each other through their own grief and pain. The character of Martin is one of my favourite characters, he is completely adorable and funny and really helped Noah when he really needed a friend, in more ways than just giving him a place to sleep, he helped him to come to terms with his sexuality and get past what his parents had put him through.
I also loved how Fin took on the responsibility of Olivia and seeing the real struggles anyone would face in that predicament. I found that the relationship between Fin and Olivia was beautifully portrayed. However, as much as I enjoyed the main couple and many other aspects of the book. I did find that it was a bit slow in areas, so it took me a bit longer to read than usual and because of this I have given it a four-star rating.
I can't imagine ever casting aside one of my children, especially over who they want to be with, but when Noah is outed as gay at a family birthday, his life as he knows it is over.
His bags are packed, his job lost and family life ended and all because he looked at the gorgeous waiter for a second too long.
Fin has his own issues...
Being primary carer for his little sister hasn't led for an easy year. When his parents were killed he didn't realise just how much impact it would have.
Dating is out of the question for now so he tries his best to be everything she needs, working and studying takes up all of his time anyway.
When the two men begin to start seeing each other, their insecurities come out in full force. Noah has never been with a man, not even held anyones hand in public as his father said it was wrong. How was he ever going to have a relationship if he couldn't touch the man he wanted to be with.
Fin knew that if Noah realised exactly what dating him meant, he would be off in a heartbeat, so his family life remained a secret.
Basing something new on pain and lies is never going to be easy but sometimes it's worth it.
The two are both hiding secrets from each other for fear of the outcomes and have to learn to trust.
I enjoyed this read immensely. It was easy to follow and although at times I felt like banging their heads together, we did get the ending we wanted.
