4 out of 5 (very good)
We rejoin Brady and Blue as they continue sharing their lives together, settling into a 'comfortable' routine that still manages to entice and excite each other, making them happy. However, change is on the horizon in the form of a Grammy nomination for Blue, and the shocking news of a friend's death that forces Brady to really look at his work/life balance. Mary, the constant from Blue, is also changing her life. Changes brings about its own upheaval; will Brady and Blue be able to weather the storm until life calms back down?
The one thing that comes across in this book is just how much Blue has grown into himself, becoming more confident and sure of who he is. Of course, he still has 'wobbles', which is not surprising considering the memories he is trying to work through.
The supporting characters from book 1 make their appearance here too, continuing to show Blue the friendship and support that everyone needs. Of course, there is always a fly in the ointment and Blue has to learn how to deal with that.
Overall, this book was thoroughly enjoyable. I loved reading about Blue and Brady's relationship, how they tried to do the right thing by each other, as well as Blue's reactions to the nomination(s). A brilliant follow-up to Blue and I would love to continue reading their story as it still seems they have so much more to offer.
