Finding Their Way (Restoration #2) by A.M. Arthur ~ #bookreveiw #MM #releaseday
Finding Their Way (Restoration #2)


Thanks to an abusive father and a string of bad relationships, Riley McCage learned the hard way that people are not kind without a reason. Now, after landing a job at popular gay bar Pot O Gold, Riley is on the right track--until the night Boxer finds him drunk and drugged in the back room of an exclusive sex party.

Donald "Boxer" Boxwood wasn't looking for anything beyond some casual kink until he peeled Riley off the floor and gave him a safe place to stay. But there's something compelling about the guy crashing on his couch, and the two forge an instant friendship that eases into unmistakable attraction. Despite Riley's hesitancy, Boxer knows one thing to be true: he needs Riley in his life.

Riley risked everything to run away and build a new life for himself, and his secrets aren't something he'd ever wish upon his kind, gentle new friend. But when the past comes to call, he'll have no choice but to put his trust in Boxer…and believe people can change enough to deserve a second chance.

My Finding Their Way Review ...  

Gotta admit, I'm a huge fan of A.M. Arthur.  So far I have quite liked everything that I have read of hers.   With Finding Their Way it's part of a series but could be read as a standalone.   In her other series the Pot O Gold bar is the gay hotspot.  In this book Riley happens to be one of the bartenders there as well as Boxer's a regular patron.

Riley has his secrets but he also has his limits.  Boxer has so much heart but he also has needs.  Riley now in a current relationship that respects his limits.  So when his boyfriend takes him to a party he trusts him, even though he shouldn't.  Thankfully for Riley, Boxer likes to take in strays and helps because if it wasn't for Boxer who knows what would have happened to Riley.

Boxer and Riley are the most unlikely duo but become fast friends.   Riley is a bit lost after his break up and lucky for him Boxer loves to help.  The closer they get the more they want to cross the line.  But Riley's past is colliding with Boxer's present.  While Boxer's present is tumbling around him, which is hard for him because he likes to help and be in control.

I loved Riley and Boxer together.  They just worked.  The may physically look like opposites but who they are balance each other out.  This story was good and heartfelt.  The characters were great and the story was balanced and complete.   Is this my favorite from A.M. Arthur? No,  but I still quite enjoyed it.  Did I like the characters and their development?  Definitely.  Am I excited for book 3 Taking A Chance?  OMG, am I ever.  The synopsis looks great.  Can't wait.

 3.5 Balanced Thumbs up!
