Second Chance Romance
Recreational Love by Ian Lewis is a second chance romance. This is Michael and Spencer’s story.
Michael and Spencer fell in love when they were in high school but due to life obligations they went their separate ways. Their paths cross again after about twenty years and there are still feelings for each other but is it too late for a second chance at love?
I loved how I could feel the emotions of the characters. This was an enjoyable read.
FYI, contains mature content. This is a M/M gay romance. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Good book, wish it was longer.
Dreams really can come true. Main characters believable. I felt like each became a friend. Felt disappointed during their disappointments, happy when things were going well for them.
Now this is how a second chance romance is done!
One thing I’ve run into with second chance romances is the reason it didn’t work the first time is either something dumb or poor communication. Not so here. The reason and the way Michael and Spencer handled it made complete sense. I love how the author chose dual POV because it made connecting to the guys easier and stronger. I’m all about the feels and this book delivered. I swear by the time I got to the epilogue I was ready for some big reveals. Just as excited as I used to get watching Clean House and waiting for Nicie to do reveal day. If you were a big fan like me you know what I mean. I wanted an HEA, find out what happened to the bad guy, and see the others happy. I got it all big time. I love reading Ian Lewis’s work because I am sure to enjoy the read and end with a happy smile on my face.
