Blurb – Cameron Lewis loves his job as an instructor/trainer for a water safety firm that inspects water parks. He gets to travel from March through September, always moving on to something different. When a strange emptiness starts plaguing him, he chalks it up to turning thirty. He manages to shake off the feeling—until he walks into a classroom and discovers that the eye candy in the front row is actually a very grown up version of his best-friend’s kid brother. Noah Winthrop never forgot his first time. Scary, painful and then absolutely amazing—and with Cameron, the guy he’d always wanted. He’s had a crush on his brother’s best friend since puberty and now nothing will keep him from finally getting Cameron Lewis to notice him. Even though Cameron once rejected him, Noah is determined to get it right this time.
My Review – I was rather disappointed with this book primarily for the lack of characterization that I have come to expect and enjoy from this author. Cameron and Noah were very one dimensional and both were annoying for different reasons. Cameron was actually rather unlikable, shallow, stubborn and cold hearted. Noah had very little conviction, and although I felt quite sorry for him initially, that quickly wore off as they book went on. There was very little in the way of romance between the characters and their relationship seemed almost entirely based on sex, lots of it! That said, this book definitely leans more towards the erotic angle rather than being plot based or character driven. The sex scenes were well written, but they were void of almost any kind of emotion. They were also too frequent for my liking. Page upon page of sex, but little in the way of plot. Unfortunately, I wasn’t emotionally invested in either character, and found myself skipping through many of the often repeated sex scenes.
