Zach and Angelo have settled into their new lives in Coda, Colorado, finding their place in the community with the help of their good friends Matt and Jared. Zach and Angelo are also working out the particulars of their relationship, but when they make a decision Jared disagrees with, Angelo finds himself at odds with his partner’s best friend. And his best friend’s partner.

When the four decide on a quick trip to Vegas, Angelo thinks he and Jared may be back on the right track. But a chance encounter with Zach’s ex-boyfriend will make Angelo question everything about himself and his relationship with Zach. Matt and Jared have always been there when Zach and Angelo needed help. But when it comes to sorting out their relationship, their friends may do more harm than good.

My Thoughts:

So I have no idea what it is about Jared & Matt and Zach & Angelo but I just can’t seem to spend too much time away from these men. I keep having to pick up the next book days later or possibly a week later. This is the third book in the series and I have to say although I didn’t like Zach & Angelo much in their book A to Z, they really grew on me in this book.

The storyline was great this time around because some parts were told from Matt’s point of view and others were told from Angelo’s point of view. This story included more time spent with Jared and Matt again and I love that since I loved their book to pieces when I read it and they are certainly high up on my favorite male character list. At first I wasn’t really caring about Zach and Angelo because I didn’t really feel they had as strong of a connection as Jared and Matt but this book proved me wrong. I loved watching Zach and Angelo go through so many things in this book. They had much more emotional scenes in this book and I felt that added depth to their relationship that I missed in A to Z. They certainly went through some hard times, fighting with each other, to possibly walking way if they couldn’t figure something out. I’m glad that everyone in this book was able to grow and tell me more about their characters as the book went on. You should all know I’m a very character driven reader so even if there was no plot but awesome characters I’m normally along for the ride. I’m just lucky in the case of this series because the characters are great, the emotional drama is great and it provides a great setting for the entire story.

Overall, I don’t want to give too much about this story away. I certainly recommend you start with the first book in this series and follow it through for the best understanding of what is going on in the books. I have high hopes that all of you out there will fall in love with Jared & Matt as well as Zach & Angelo after reading this book. I can’t wait to move on to book four because I get to finally see more about Jonathan and Cole.
