    Great

    This was awesome. It started out a little slow and almost stiff (no pun intended), but slowly started to develop. At first it kind of bugged me, but as their relationship progressed, it began to make sense. I felt like I was actually witnessing their development first-hand.

    Jonathan was complex. In the beginning he was so uptight and rigid that I found myself disliking him sometimes. As he and Cole grew closer, he started to look closer at himself and his attitude and life and he slowly relaxed and became so much more lovable.

    Cole was equally hard to fully like at the start. He was so very snarky and overtly flaming that it felt like he was shoved in your face. But again, as he grew closer to Jon and began to feel more comfortable in their relationship, his walls started to come down little by little. He broke my heart.

    The unexpected character that added so much to their relationship was Jon's father. He was obviously uncomfortable with his son being gay, but the only family they had was each other, so he was trying. His shock and bafflement at Cole was amusing and it was sweet how they came together in spite of everything.

    I teared up a little, smiled, fell in love and was heartbroken throughout this book. The sexual parts were sparse and not at all graphic. The few scenes that were focused on sex were more about their further intimacy and the simple things, like kissing and just feeling each other, not just gratuitous sex.

    Overall, another great read from Sexton. 400+ pgs

    Highly Recommended

    A well-written, engaging and heartwarming story. The perfect pacing allowed me to step right into the story where I identified with the characters and felt their emotions. Sexton creates imperfect yet sympathetic characters who live through typical human emotions, situations and difficult decisions. They endure life and relationship struggles that apply to us all, whether straight or gay. Cole and Jon, with their human frailties, failures, fears, and struggles to make the world and their relationship work, give us a believable and truly romantic story. In this story there is heartbreak and there is much joy. Now I wish I'd read the first one in the series before reading this one; I became so vicariously involved with the anxiety, hope and love inside Cole and Jon that I would have liked to have experienced the prior forces that brought them to us in Strawberries for Dessert.
