We Danced by Jeff Erno

Quite a departure from the previous books I read by this author, We Danced is a mostly sweet and romantic story about young vet student Josh, who falls in love for single dad Rex. Now no, don’t get me wrong, Rex is not bisexual, he is actually the uncle of little Tyler, and he found himself the only relative of the kids almost soon after he was born. At the time Rex was only 22 years old, and now 8 years later he is all focused on Tyler and his personal life is no existent. It’s no surprise so, when he meets Josh, he falls in love hard and fast.

Josh maybe is a little too young to commit to a relationship which includes also a kid, but from what we learn, he is well balanced, and with a planned future ahead of him; he will be a veterinarian, he will have his own practice, and Rex and Tyler are no bumps on his road.

Jeff Erno has used us to a lot of sex in his previous novels, and I’m not saying there is no sex here, but I had the feeling it was less graphic, and not so centered. True, Rex and Josh don’t last long before falling in bed, but they are as much as committed in building a family than in developing his relationship.

The character of the kid, Tyler, is very important; truth be told, I’m not a fun of children, so sometime I found him to be a little bit intrusive, Josh and Rex had trouble to find a way to stay together far from the kid’s eyes. But in the end, he is probably the reason why Josh and Red are good together, Tyler likes Josh, and that is very important for Rex.
