A Fool for You by Cat Grant

At the third book in the series, the author decided to label this one the “Icon Men” series. I thought about this “icon” tag, and my conclusion is that these stories are centred around characters out of the dreams, sexy and not, of many men, but then in the end, they are more down to earth than what you were expecting. In the first story there was the sexy escort, in the second one the drag queen, and now the pop/rock/blues star; the common theme is an immediate attraction to the “icon”, the dreamlike imagine we have of the man, but then the lover will understand the man is just like everyone else, with his goods and bads.

Brian is really only a kid at the beginning of the story, he is already 20 years old, but he is practically living alone since he was 15, dragged from place to place by his boyfriend with whom he has a rock band. When the cheating boyfriend finds someone else from whom he can dig, Brian finds himself in need of help and shelter and he finds them in the arms of Chase, a blues guitar player, and in the welcoming family his father Trent built with partner Cameron.

There is really no bump in this story, if not, as I said, the need for Brian to grow a little and learning that the world is not Black and White and that it’s good sense to give people a second chance. Brian is really a spoiled brat at first, both with Trent and Cameron, but also with Chase. In a way he is expecting the world to love him since he had a “difficult” youth, not realizing that, in the end, he got it way simplier than many other kids.
