    After reading Crossings Borders by this author I was really look

    After reading Crossings Borders by this author I was really looking forward to this one, It was funny, sweet and a real treat. I loved Logan's spirit, he is a military man and the fact he is taking advantage of the fact he no longer has to hide who he is. The relationship between Richard and Nick was wonderful but I think the best part was the fact that neither Logan or Richard were stuffy or boring, they had fun and the strip scene just had me in fit, yes you did read that right!! This drew me in so when things were coming together and becoming a team it was touching and heart warming but when it went wrong it was heart wrenching and hard to read. This was a story that showed that older people can still have fun relationships and be a bit silly and sexy and for me that was the best bit because these men were in my age group and I don't feel old and this story say loud and clear that love can be fun no matter what age you are, what's not to love about that!!

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review

    Richard is a young (45 year old) grandfather to 9 year old Nick. Logan is an almost 50-ish year old guy who lives in town. He has a reputation with the kids in the neighborhood for being an intense guy who likes rules to be followed. Both men feel that they are beyond their prime and are not expecting that they will ever find love again. My first impression when reading this was that the guys were in their 60's or 70's. They are only in their 40's. Of course, Richard has his grandson to watch after and Logan feels that he already had his shot at love, so that reason is mainly why they aren't expecting to find someone and that reason makes a lot more sense than the fact that they are in their 40's, which is what it seemed to imply at first.

    I loved reading a story about two guys finding each other when they know what they want and are settled in their lives. They had opposing views on many things, but the beauty of these characters is that they were older and wiser, and able to compromise and talk about things rather than be closed minded and rigid. They were so hot together, too. The passion was through the roof!

    Nick was a great character. He was written into Richard's life with a purpose and you could tell he was Richard's whole world. I loved their relationship. He struggled with so much negativity in his life (and continued to deal with mixed messages and feelings of abandonment), and Richard was his rock.

    One thing I did not like was how the "drama" unfolded (with Nick's mom and boyfriend). I would have liked to see a little more resolution to this rather than just assuming that all was well after the fact. Did the lawyer/Rick take steps to ensure this didn't happen again? Another thing that bothered me was when Nick was beat up in school and did not fight back. Nick and his friend that tried to help him both got suspended from school. Seriously? I get that this was written a few years ago before bullying became a big issue in the schools, but that upset me. Good for Nick and good for his friend!

    I know Richard, Logan, and Nick become a "Family Unit" (which I LOVE the title after hearing it explained in the story), but what exactly does that mean. Do they move in together? I would have liked just a little bit more.

    I received a copy of the 2nd edition book with the new cover and I have to say that I love it and it seems (to me) to be a much better representative of the characters. It shows guys that appear a bit younger than the other cover, and honestly...45 is not old! :-)

    Overall, this book was very enjoyable. It was on my TBR for a long time, and I am glad I finally got the opportunity and encouragement to read this. I liked it a lot.
