Nothing scared Christian Beck more than his brothers finding out that he was gay. How could he ever tell his three big, buff, women-loving brothers that he was into dudes? What if they thought it was disgusting? What if they disowned him? He loved his brothers so much and couldn’t bear to lose them.
His only problem? He was in love with his best friend, who was now his boyfriend. He wanted to spend the rest of his life with this man. He hated having to hide their relationship, but what choice did he have? It was either hide his relationship or risk losing his family.
Shea Dempsey’s life has been turned upside down and inside out. First, his parents and sister were killed a couple years back, leaving him without any blood relatives. Now, the one person who he considered his only family told him that he was in love with him. The only issue? It was his best friend Christian, who’s gay. So when Christian told him that they could no longer be friends, Shea made a decision that would forever change him. He decided to become Christian’s boyfriend, because honestly, he would do anything to keep his best friend, even if that meant switching teams.
As their relationship became more involved, Shea realized that he really enjoyed being with men…okay, maybe not all men, but definitely Christian. But he didn’t want to hide what they had together. The only problem was that Christian would not budge on the subject and refused to tell his family about them. Shea didn’t know how long he could live in secret. Will their years of friendship and love for each other be enough? Or will the ultimatum that Shea gives Christian end everything for good?
*I received this book free from the author in exchange for an honest review*
Christian has a secret, something he’s never told his family, he’s gay. He wasn’t sure how’d they react and was scared they’d hate him so it was just easier to hide it from them. That is until he falls for his best friend, Shea, who’s always been straight. He can only hide that attraction for so long before someone’s bound to take notice. And oh how his brother’s love trying to put two and two together to figure out the puzzle that is their baby brother, Christian.
Shea lost his entire family, he was all that was left, but he had Christian. They’d been friends since forever and he wouldn’t know what to do without him in his life. But he was straight…or so he thought. When Christian professes his love for him, he doesn’t even think about it he just agrees to be his boyfriend. Christian isn’t exactly sure Shea can just switch from being straight to gay, but time after time he’s proven wrong.
“Holy Mother of God! Christian is his boyfriend!”
Christian and Shea do have a few bumps along the way, but what relationship doesn’t. They battle through changed locks, hospitals, telling family, and one call that’ll change their lives forever.
I really enjoyed this book. I think Christian was my favorite of the four. It brought together friendship, love, and family. Not only was this Christian and Shea’s story, but it also included all of his brother’s and their families. It was a great conclusion to the series.
My Favorite Laughable Moment: I about died laughing when Quinn walked in without waiting on a response to his knock. Bet he’ll never do that again.
My Favorite Moment: I always love it when someone will overcome their fears in order to do something extremely romantic for the person they love. Go Christian!
