Publisher's BlurbIf short-tempered Jason can open his heart and life to optimistic Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.
Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it's a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.
Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn't dimmed Abe Green's optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved.
For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.
The Half of Us by Cardeno C has the story of Jason, he is a cousin to Asher from Something in the Way He Needs. Jason is a surgeon. He is short tempered. He has a love and leave them policy that has worked so far also an ex wife and two teenaged children. With all that on his plate he doesn't have time for love. That is until he meets Abe.
Abe is a high school teacher. He is sweet, kind, and a one man kind of man. Jason is the opposite of any kind of man he has ever wanted before. But as a birthday present to himself he agrees to one night with the sexy man. But when one night becomes more they both have to decide if they can be in this for the long haul.
I liked the changes to this book. A second edition, that has really helped the rough edges to this book. Abe last time came off to me as manipulative, but now he is loving and sweet. Jason before was too gruff so he came off as a real jerk but now he is more softened.
I also reviewed this one in the audio form. Plus book form. The audio form done by audiables.com is really well done. I liked how the narrator's voice really adds to the overall storyline. Not many audios that I will recommend but this one is one I would highly recommend.
When you want the meaning of true family and love this is the book to pick up in either ebook or audio form it is an great read.
