The Half of Us

The Half of Us400x600 (1)
Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it’s a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.

Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn't dimmed Abe Green’s optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved. For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves. 

**** out of 5 (really liked it)

Jason is a heart surgeon, arrogant in his own capabilities and looks but oh so insecure in other ways, ways he doesn't even realise. He meets Abe, they have a one night stand as per Jason's rules, and then they go their merry way, never to meet again. There's just one problem with that. Jason can't stop thinking about Abe.

This story was a delight to read - whether it was the hot and smexy bedroom/kitchen/living room scenes or whether it was a lunch date with Jason's ex-wife, the intensity of the emotions was there all the way. You laughed when they laughed, you felt your heart twinge at Jason's cluelessness as he tries to find his way in the dark and do the 'right' thing. You will probably be amazed (as I was) with Abe's quiet strength and how he knows which battles to fight and which to leave.

This is the first in the Family series that I have read but trust me, it won't be the last. And once I have read them in order, I will be reading this one again. Really enjoyed it and can definitely recommend it.

Cardeno’s Home, Family, and Mates series have received awards from Love Romances and More Golden Roses, Rainbow Awards, the Goodreads M/Romance Group, and various reviewers. But even more special to CC are heartfelt reactions from readers, like, “You bring joy and love and make it part of the every day.”
