In June 1966, ACLU attorney Eron Lassiter attends his uncle’s wedding and makes an unsettling discovery. Though Eron had bowed to family pressure and planned a potential marriage, his long-ignored attraction to other men roars to life when Garrett Emerson, the bride’s nephew, captures his attention.
After serving in the Korean War and going to college later than his peers, upwardly mobile Garrett now works as a loan officer at a local bank. For his girlfriend — fiancée in her mind — Garrett can’t climb fast enough. But none of that matters to Eron, and maybe that’s why Garrett’s so drawn to him.
Together, can Eron and Garrett find happiness amidst the pervasive culture of propriety, honor, and expectation of the 1960s?
To start of this review I loved what this author did with these characters Eron and Garret in the time period they were in…
I love historical m/m romance novels and this one was just so good! Eron meets Garrett at Eron’s uncles wedding and from the moment they meet there was a instant attraction between these two men. I loved Eron and Garrett together.. I was rooting for them through this whole book and thought they were so sweet together.
Now the parts I was not really a huge fan of.. The woman these men were with honestly drove me nuts and were so annoying especially at the end of this book. There were also a few parts that did drag for me too.
But other than that I really did like what this author did with these characters and this story excluding the parts with Johnette and Mary Ellen because honestly they were just too much and over the top annoying.
So I will leave this review with… I thought the epilogue of this book was beautiful and I really liked this book!
They finished the drive back to the apartment in silence. Eron’s sincerity had shone through when he spoke of what they had done and his lack of regret. Eron’s words eased the tension between them. At the flea market, with other people around, they had no trouble carrying on a conversation.
Garrett pulled into his parking spot and nodded toward his apartment as they got out of the car. Once inside, Eron lowered himself to the davenport and Garrett plopped down next to him.
“I’ve been a jerk,” Eron said.
“We’re both confused. Don’t be so hard on yourself. It doesn’t help that we both have girlfriends and family that only want what they think is the best for us.”
“Do you and Johnette…you know…”
“Have sex? No. I used to tell myself it was because she was a respectable girl and we should wait.”
“Come on, you know the answer to that. What about you and Mary Ellen?”
“Eron, why did you come see me today?”
Eron had struggled with the same question. “As much as I don’t want to be queer, I want to be with you.”
“I understand that,” Garrett said after a while. “I don’t identify with the queens that live in the city.”
“What about our jobs? Our family?”
“Could we make it work?”
“I have no idea. Honestly I don’t. I’ve spent hours plotting and examining every angle and I’m more confused than I was to start. I walled up any feelings I had about other men a long time ago, but you brought them to the surface.”
