He’d almost wept. And Gavin Walker did not weep. Or swoon. But that was exactly what he’d done when Davy had kissed him. And here he was, making love to Davy. The whole situation was unnerving, but he wouldn’t back down. Something inside him said Davy was worth it. He wanted to get this right.'
The title of this book is pretty self explanatory. This is about Gavin, who has adapted this 'trouble' persona and lets very few people see who he really is.
And Davy, the wallflower. He is shy and hasn't quite adapted to being comfortable in social situations due to years of being kept inside due to his mother's Agoraphobia.
Both couldn't be more opposite and yet they're drawn to each other so much.
And I mean, isn't that cover just so freaking pretty??!
I'm not gonna lie, I loved this immediately. I couldn't actually stop myself from smiling so hard. It had all signs of a great book from the beginning and it never wavered from that throughout the book.
I fell for Gavin straight away, and I fell for him through Davy's eyes. (We do get Gavin's POV too, we just meet him at first through Davy's eyes.) His charm, determination and just the force that was Gavin had me a goner from the start, I had no hope! Now, he definitely messes up and you will want to junk punch him. Twice. But he totally makes up for it, without a doubt, he definitely had me back to swooning. Hard. Gavin has plenty more to him than meets the eye.
'And if there was one thing anyone could tell you about Gavin Walker, it was that when he made up his mind, he was stubborn and fought to stay on that path. And the path to Davy had way too much hope on it to make him want to wander off. Gavin was out of his depth. He had gone years without getting emotionally involved with someone in the way he was with Davy, but he had Davy now, and he didn’t want either of them to be alone anymore.'
Davy! So, initially Davy is the reason I wanted to read this book! I love characters that don't quite fit in, that aren't flawless. Characters like Davy give me hope and are the ones I connect with the most. And he definitely lived up to what I imagined and hoped he'd be like. He didn't really fit into social situations but he was still his own person and just because he didn't, didn't make him any less. He proved how strong he was time after and time and came out of his comfort zone at the right times. He's also pretty hilarious, had me laughing out loud more than once, he was also determined when he cared about someone. I loved him just as much as Gavin.
'Davy had never felt such a strong need to dominate, to care for another person. He wanted to take away whatever pain Gavin was feeling.'
These two were perfect together, things weren't always perfect but these two were made for each other. I never stopped smiling. The playful love/hate thing they had going was amazing and made me giddy. They have hard times and there's conflict but it's always how characters deal with the conflict that's important and these characters definitely done what's right when it mattered.
'“Haven’t you heard? I’m trouble.” Davy smiled and nipped Gavin’s bottom lip. “Well, trouble might not be all bad.” He bucked his hips up into Gavin, and Gavin rolled his eyes back in pleasure. “I think you should show me some of those ‘other things’ now.” “And I thought you were the shy little wallflower,” Gavin teased. Davy wrapped his arms around Gavin’s waist and squeezed his firm a**. “Haven’t you heard the old saying ‘it’s always the quiet ones’?” “Indeed.”'
I honestly loved this book so much. I just didn't want to finish. It's one of the few books I tried slowing down on my reading so I wouldn't finish too quickly because I did not wanna say goodbye to these characters.I'm not sure if Kade has/will be doing books for the secondary characters but I'd love to read more on their friends, even Nate! Hehe!
Oh , and I've got to mention Ray! Oh gosh what a character!! Loved him so much.
I already wish I could be reading it for the first time.
