The sequel to Making it Personal…
Rick Wentworth has had enough of one night stands and quickies in clubs. It takes a night of uncharacteristic hedonism to make Rick admit what he really wants – someone to love him. But for that to happen, he needs to make some changes. Rick can do that. After all, what’s the alternative? And when he meets a guy who ticks all his boxes, he can’t believe his luck. His boss Blake Davis, and Blake’s fiancé Will Parkinson, however, aren’t convinced. They want to know more about Mr. Perfect, and their instincts are keener than Rick’s. Both men want to protect him. As it turns out, they needn’t have worried. Rick has a guardian angel…
When Angelo Tarallo sees Rick for the first time, it’s a match made in Heaven, as far as he’s concerned. And when he rescues Rick from danger, it gives him the opportunity to get to know the man who has captivated him. Before long, it’s plain to both men that this could lead somewhere. But when Angelo’s traditional Sicilian family finally discover what he’s been hiding from them for so long, an ultimatum spells heartache for the lovers – and worse.
So what did I think?
You know when you read a book and you really, really like it, so when a sequel is released, your expectations are really high? And you hope and hope that the sequel is just as good? Well, this sequel is even better!
This story has all the elements that make it a true page-turner. From Rick’s desire to find true love, his regret at his casual sexual exploits, attempted rape, good friends, finding love, intolerant families, loving families, ultimatums, violence, love and lots of hot sex.
The story starts with a bang (menage and dp!) and from these early scenes, it’s clear that Rick has a very low opinion of himself. He is vulnerable as he searches for love and this vulnerability allows him to be taken advantage of. Luckily he has good friends Will and Blake to look out for him and bolster his spirits.
Angelo is from a traditional Italian family with traditional beliefs that don’t include them having a gay son. He experiences his own heartache when he needs to make some very important decisions but he receives some very wise advice. “You decide for yourself who you are going to gift your heart to, and see that love returned.”
I really enjoyed the journey as Rick learns that he is worthy of love and Angelo makes life changing decisions to follow his heart. There are scenes of smoking hot sex and moments of beautiful tenderness and a fabulous romantic happy ending!
