(Adult Romance M/M)
by Mary Calmes (Goodreads Author)
Forty-five-year-old English professor Nathan Qells is very good at making people feel important. What he’s not very good at is sticking around afterward. He’s a nice guy; he just doesn’t feel things the way other people do. So even after all the time he’s spent taking care of Michael, the kid across the hall, he doesn’t realize that Michael’s mob muscle uncle and guardian, Andreo Fiore, has slowly been falling in love with him.
Dreo has bigger problems than getting Nate to see him as a potential partner. He’s raising his nephew, trying to leave his unsavory job, and starting his own business, a process made infinitely more difficult when a series of hits takes out some key underworld players. Still, Dreo is determined to build a life he can be proud of—a life with Nate as a cornerstone. A life that is starting to look like exactly what Nate has been looking for. Unfortunately for Dreo—and for Nate—the last hits were just part of a major reorganization, and Dreo’s obvious love for Nate has made him a target too
I have read a couple other Mary Calmes books like Frog and Again so I knew I already liked her writing and story telling. I was not let down with this book.
From the very beginning you love Nathan Qells how can you not. You can also fall madly in love with his quirky ex-wife and friends. In the beginning you are routing for Sean but once you meet Michael and then of course Dreo the story changes and builds into something that is bigger and you quickly forget about Sean.
You fall in love with Dreo once he starts to open up and especially when he opens up and lets everyone know about Nate and how proud he is to be with him.
I liked this story a lot and was happy with the ending.
