In this case the story is about Billy, 21 years old and without a job that needs to take care of his younger twin brother, 5 years old Davey and Donnie. In any other world, social services would pester him and Billy, young and hot, would obviously consider that there is an easy way to gain money for a twink gay boy, but here, in the Pink Glass bowl that is Andrew Grey’s contemporary romance world, Billy finds a job as part time waiter in Darryl’s restaurant, and of course Darryl is gay as well and of course he is attracted by Billy and he is a wonderful man who is not scared that with Billy comes also the heavy bundle of a premade family.
I’m sincere, Andrew Grey played a trick ace with the pitiful story of two 5 years old boys hungry and scared, and of Billy who was so pretty and kind that harming him was like kicking a puppy; I’m sincere, I shed a tear or two, but mostly this was a novel with happily ever after written all over it. True there was a bit of a dramatic turn, but all in all, the relationship between Billy and Darryl flows smoothly and good until the end. That is another common characteristic with previous romances I read by Andrew Grey, the feeling that the big bad world is out there, and that yes, it scarred some of our heroes, but that in the end, they have always managed to find their little peaceful oasis in the world, where they can live happily together, far from the hate of other people.
