Sequel to Eyes Only for Me Eyes of Love: Book Two
Eyes of Love: Book Two
Marcello Bagnini has a history of falling for the wrong men, and it seems he’s done it again. Working out at the gym with his straight friend Jerry is becoming harder by the day—in more ways than one. Worse yet, Jerry isn’t the only one who notices Marcello’s wandering eyes. So instead of risking his friendship with Jerry and alienating the other guys at the gym, Marcello keeps his feelings to himself.
Real estate agent Jerry Foland has never explored his interest in other men, but there’s something different about Marcello, and Jerry’s starting to think he might like to see where his attraction could lead. However, Jerry’s controlling father makes it clear that it’s either stay on the straight and narrow or Jerry can say good-bye to his family.
As much as they try to stay away from each other, their lives overlap, both at the gym and when Jerry is contracted to sell the home of one of Marcello’s friends. Friendship grows into more, but Jerry’s father has his own agenda, and it doesn’t include having a gay son.

Romance and love has no limits....poignant story about the evolution of love and acceptance. Really like this author.
Wow. That sums up my reaction to Andrew Grey’s “Eyes Only For You,” even after reading it twice. The romance is stronger in this book that some other Andrew Grey stories and the sex is frequent and scorching hot. Do you need to know more? Well, if so, here goes… Marcello is a member of a small group of men who work out at a gym, sometimes together, sometimes in pairs. Marcello is gay but has so far been unable to find a man with whom he can have a stable, loving relationship. He has his eye on (sometimes literally, sometimes figuratively) his best friend Jerry. Jerry the straight guy. Jerry the guy he doesn’t want to risk destroying a friendship with. Oh, what to do, what to do. Jerry is a real estate agent who has a successful career going on and wants to develop it even farther. So, what’s standing in his way? His own father, who built a small business and has dreams of handing it down to Jerry, and Jerry wants no part of it. Jerry has dated women but notices men, particularly his gym buddy Marcello. The desire is there but not the willingness to act on it. He knows his parents will not accept Jerry coming out as gay and he’s not sure he even accepts it himself. Much of the story is Jerry dancing around his own sexual identity, which confuses Marcello as much as it confuses Jerry. There is a lot of yen and yang, push and pull, desire and fear, especially for Jerry. Jerry is carrying quite a burden, between his father’s demands concerning Jerry’s career and Jerry’s attraction to Marcello. When Marcello gets Jerry alone and whispers secret longings that Jerry can’t deny, the action gets hot, then hotter. So, the question becomes, will Sal (Jerry’s father) continue to rule Jerry’s private and public life or will Jerry stand up to Sal at the risk of making a permanent fracture between father and son that perhaps cannot ever be mended. In other words, will Jerry have to make a choice between Marcello and his family? It’s an Andrew Grey romance so you can imagine what happens but watching it play out is worth every page turned, every heartache, every concern that this time, maybe Mr. Grey has written a story without is usual HEA. I recommend this book, and the one that precedes it, “Eyes Only for Me” so highly. Either book can be read as a stand alone but I’m betting that if you read one you will want to read the other.
