I was really looking forward to seeing more of Ryan and Zach as I grew to like them both so much while reading More Than Friends. This sequel did not disappoint. Zach and Ryan have been together for several months now, both deliriously happy and deeply in love; they are each looking forward to a future together despite Ryan’s insecurities. Although Zach is wonderful to him and their sex life is amazing, he has yet to confess his love to Ryan or ask him to move in. These insecurities only intensify when he learns that Zach is still in touch with his ex-boyfriend, Steve. Zach has assured Ryan that they share a working relationship only, but Ryan can’t help feeling jealous and unsure. When Zach asks Ryan to accompany him on a business trip to Portland, he is both excited and terrified, knowing that Steve will be there as well. Thoughts of Zach’s ex disappear from Ryan’s mind though when Zach surprises him with some very special gifts, a key to his apartment and a declaration of his love. But just as all of Ryan’s dreams seem to be coming true, Steve makes an appearance, introducing himself to Ryan while he waits for Zach to join him for lunch. Not wanting to be rude, he reluctantly accepts Steve’s invitation for them to join him that evening for dinner. Although the evening starts out a little awkward for the couple, some alcohol consumption lightens the mood soon enough. It also lowers Ryan’s inhibitions and when Steve suggests that they enjoy a threesome, Ryan’s curiosity and arousal get the best of him. Zach reluctantly agrees, realizing that it would be unfair of him to deny Ryan an experience that he has enjoyed himself before they were together. Rules are established and promises are made but in the heat of the moment, those promises are broken. Will this experience break this couple for good or will they somehow find a way to forgive? The author did an excellent and I mean excellent job in creating these two characters. Drunk in Love is full of emotion, heat, and heartache. This author has a remarkable talent for portraying honest and realistic characters that have natural human responses to every situation that they find themselves in. The sex scenes are brilliantly depicted, very hot yet ripe with feeling, as are the non-romantic scenes. Ms. Grace has made her way to the top of my favorite authors list! A well-written, fast-paced read, Drunk in Love warmed my heart and then broke it...and then warmed it again… Although I’m still pissed at Steve for the part that he played in this story, I have to admit that I’m anxious to learn more about him in the next installment in the series.
[I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review] This is the sequel to More Than Friends (now free on Amazon) which should be read before this one to understand how Ryan and Zack relationship started. While More than Friends was a cute but very short gay-for-you story, this book gives us the chance to know a little more the two main characters - Ryan and Zack - and find out how their relationship came along in almost a year together. The first thing I noticed, having read this right after book 1, is that Ryan in the first 2 or 3 chapters seemed almost like another person: very confident in his new sexuality and quite eager to take the next step in his relationship with Zack. While it wasn't a bad thing in itself (after all they were together for 8 months already) it still seemed to me a little out of character for a guy that was convinced to be hetero just a few months ago. It started to be more believable and more like the Ryan I knew from book 1, for example, when he was worried about telling his parents about Zack and when he felt insecure and jealous about Steve presence in Zack's life. Aaaaaand that -the thing with Steve- is a sore point for me. I'd read the blurb of the story so I knew there was a threesome at some point but I didn't like how it played out. If Ryan was the jealous type (and that's the impression I've got from the books) how come he was fine with sharing Zack with his ex? The same ex to whom he felt so insecure about just a few hours earlier? I understand that mostly it was an expedient to break them up and stir things up a little but I would have preferred if the author had chosen a different route to it. In the end Drunk in Love was an okay read for me: 2.5 stars Mostly I liked it but the things I pointed out earlier prevented me from fully enjoying the story. Anyhow I'd like to thank the author for the chance to read her book for free and I hope she appreciate my honest review.
