Helix 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.

3.5+ stars- I was really intrigued by the idea behind Helix, following both an older and younger couple. Overall, the book held my attention and was an enjoyable read, but there were some elements that gave me pause and kept Helix from being as wonderful as I hoped. I really liked the contrasting relationship paths with the young men having a slow burn romance and Steve and Mark burning with lust before morphing into a deeper emotional connection. I appreciated what you would expect considering the characters' ages was exactly the opposite of how the relationships played out. James and Dylan's tender love mixed with their fumbling physical and emotional moments were so sweet and I enjoyed seeing their bond strengthen over the course of Helix. While I appreciated how Steve and Mark offered a completely different pathway to love, their relationship left me wanting. Their quick and dirty hookups ended up feeling more salacious than sexy and I never really got to see the relationship deepen beyond a surface appreciation for each other's company. While that's okay, it's not what I look for when reading romance. I also struggled with some elements that threw off the pacing in Helix. A few different times characters revealed "new" information that was already divulged chapters before. When I already struggled to feel that connection between Mark and Steve, these repetitive reveals definitely didn't help me get lost in the story. All that said, I really liked the stories within Helix; I guess I simply expected to be more blown away given how much the blurb snared my attention. *Reviewed for Alpha Book Club*
