The Half of Us
By Cardeno C.
Published: October 10th 2014 by Dreamspinner Press
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.
**** 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.
