Gotta give it up for the series name, "A Nice Guys Series". Although I love my bad boys, I did thoroughly enjoy having a book based on the ups, downs, and mistakes of nice guys. It's who they were at the core even though there were periods of screw-upedness while they were manipulated by asshats.
So once upon a time there were two nice guys, Colt and Jace
"I'm not gonna say it now, but I hope you see where I'm going with this. I want the promise of someday from you. That's all I'm asking, Jace."
Promises and plans are made and Colt is ready to publicly embrace Jace. Unfortunately for them those who hold power in Colt's life have a different plan in mind. And so the downward spiral begins as they both live their lives. Each handling heartache differently.
About 70% of the way through the book I could literally feel my heart coming up through my throat. I barely recovered.
The story was heartbreaking and beautiful. I loved Jace's strength, heart, and simply the way he embraced and took care of Colt.
Colt was just as remarkable. He was all tough athlete on the outside, but also willing and able to put his feeling out there.
"I love you, Jace. I always have, and through all my mistakes, I wanted you to know I've never said that to anyone else. Only you."
Highly recommend to fellow angst lovers! 5 heartfelt stars
