Aubrey is living in Atlanta, managing the fortune of the Reynolds’s family, the same family, and fortune, that Keaton abandoned. In the first book in this series, the theory was that, even if Keaton was younger than Aubrey, he was the strongest between the two brothers and so the natural heir to the “throne”. But Keaton refused that responsibility, and so Aubrey had to take upon him, not only in the managing of the firm, but also in leading the pack, and above all in providing an heir. Aubrey, like Keaton, is gay, but he has never considered to come out, thinking not possible for him to be both a leader than gay.
Then Keaton asks him to play as chaperon for young Matt, coming in Atlanta to attend college. Matt is young, gay and Aubrey’s mate. Their chemistry is good and natural from the beginning, and even if Matt is a virgin, he has little objection to experiment his sexuality with Aubrey, his mate and friend. Little obstacle are in Matt and Aubrey’s path, not even Aubrey’s parents who inform Matt they think him being a good companion for their son.
That is probably the main thing I noticed of this novel, it was more sedate than the previous books I read by J.L. Langley; Without Reservation was quite funny, With Caution a little more adventurous, With Abandon is “balanced”: there is a little bit of fun, a little bit of adventure, a little more of romance. Maybe it’s not the same fireworks effect of other books, but it’s a proof that J.L. Langley is a sure thing in the M/M romance world.
