A love story dealing with sex trafficking and a victim named Joey and his desire to escape from his captor. He is helped by the owner of a Waffle House owner named Steve who with the help of some friends helps Joey escape. It is a story of trust and a blossoming love affair between two kind and sweet men, one a bit rough and the other mild mannered and how they find love and happiness in a broken world.
I really detested Steve in the last book but was glad he decided to change his ways and redeemed hiself. Glad he found love.
3.5 stars This book is really nice and sweet. The only thing which is a bit improbable is the time line, I mean everything happens so fast but it doesn't feel impossible. The writing is really fast paced, which is always a plus. Because once I started this book I left it only when I finished it. Steve is this really nice guy who realizes he has messed up in the past but is now ready to leave it all behind. I really liked Steve he has this strength to own up to his past mistakes and keep moving forward. Joey is in a bad relationship with a dangerous person. The thing I loved about him is that despite everything he goes through he still manages to retain his innocence and his trust. He is really sweet and...naughty. Steve and Joey fall for each other very quickly, but their relationship starts of very maturely so their feelings come of as genuine and not fabricated on lust, and you know they have a chance. This was one of the best aspects of this book the way their relationship starts off. I love Steve's friends; Allen, Matt, Spencer even the not-so ones like Caleb, Phil, Dylan and Zach... All the side characters are really well developed and I really loved them for their friendship and loyalty. Since this is the first book I read in the series I have no idea about Steve and Zach's past. And I can assure you that not having read the first two books in the series does not in anyway influence the story in this one but I can't help the urge I feel to read about Zach after reading this one. This is a really good book and it managed to capture my attention completely. This book was provided for free by the author in exchange for an honest review.
3.5 Stars This story is the third book in the More Than Friends series. The author states it could be read as a stand-alone and I have to agree. I have not read any other books in the series and I had no problems following the story. With that being said, I did feel like I was missing some background information, especially regarding Steve’s friends. It wasn’t enough that I couldn’t follow the story and enjoy it, but it was enough to take away just a tiny bit of gratification. Another warning, this book has an insta-love feel to it. If this is not your thing then you probably won’t be satisfied with Steve and Joey’s relationship. It didn’t bother me, but I think the story would have been better with a little more relationship building. Overall though, I did like this book. Steve is an interesting character. He talks about his regrets (which I can only assume were in the first 2 books) and how he wants to lead a better life. He is definitely rough around the edges but very sweet and caring. You don’t get to know Joey nearly as well as Steve. I think the story could definitely improve if readers did learn more of Joey’s background and life. That didn’t stop me from liking Joey though. The pace of this book was very fast. Before I knew it, the book was over. That wasn’t a bad thing. The story kept my interest the entire time. I enjoyed the book and its characters enough to want to read the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
