Chase never had many friends, but at college, he meets and forms close ties with straight jock Tyler Davidson—a connection he fears he’ll lose if he tells Tyler he’s gay. Keeping his sexuality secret becomes harder for Chase as he joins Tyler and his family at their idyllic lake house for the summer. It grows more and more difficult for Chase to avoid Tyler’s attempts to set him up with girls, and he’s tired of making excuses. Chase is ready to embrace the man he is, but he’s afraid of what it will cost him.
The Davidsons seem like the perfect family, but Chase soon realizes there’s trouble in paradise. Tyler’s dad, Nathan, has done everything to make a good life for his wife and children—including suppressing his sexuality and denying his needs for years. But like Chase, Nathan is growing weary of living a lie. What begins as an offer of support from Chase grows into an unexpected attraction that will have profound effects on everyone. Chase and the Davidsons are about to learn that there’s no such thing as a perfect family, but that perfection isn’t a requirement for friendship and love.
Mulligans by Charlie David, I wish really wish I had never read this book. Rarely would I say a book as made me angry or I just plain could not find something positive to say about it… I think the most positive statement I can say is the editing is great, and the book cover is amazing. The story itself, just was not my cuppa tea at all.
We have Chase now I like Chase and what this story does to him and his friendship with Dylan his best friend just makes me wanna smack Dylan's self centered father. Okay we were on Chase right… he is a shy, sweet college aged kid. He has not told Dylan his best friend that he is gay he does not want to lose the one best friend he has. He does not have a whole lot of friends that he can just throw one away. They are like brothers they are so close.
Nathan is Dylan's father. Nathan has been suppressing for years that he is really gay. He has a college aged son, and a ten year old daughter and now he is having a midlife crisis about being gay and suppressing it. Yeah I was not impressed with him. Self centered did not think of the consequences to his family or to Chase he just is thinking of himself. He practically grooms Chase from the start to fall for him and have sex with him, that was creepy.
Over all this is a book has a great cover, the cover artist is amazing.
