Synopsis

For fans who loved the snarky wit of Will & Grace and the epic love drama found in Brokeback Mountain comes Avery Aster’s new full-length, standalone contemporary erotic M/M romance novel, Unsaid.

Chelsea’s hottie Blake Morgan III has reemerged from a nasty breakup. His marriage was a frigid disaster beyond repair, and he vows to be single—forever. Bruised, but still hot in Prada, he creates his Seven Desires wish list, his sexiest imaginings. Blake soon realizes there’s only one man he may trust to make these uninhibited intentions come to fruition: his best friend Miguel Santana.

Lower East Side multimedia artist extraordinaire Miguel Santana may be known as the cocky Latin stud in the city, but all he’s wanted since college was Blake’s hand in marriage. He was livid when Blake walked down the aisle with the wrong guy. Miguel has his own list titled the Seven Needs, which are quite contrary to Blake’s dirty-boy deeds. They involve serious commitments, which may leave his new-to-the-singles-scene buddy sprinting for the door, destroying any hopes Miguel has for happiness.

Can these two hunks conquer their intimate fears and love one another as only best friends can? Join the star-studded cast in The Manhattanites series and see for yourself!

Review

I really enjoyed this story.  I have not read any of the other books in this series, but did not feel that I needed to in order to understand the story at all.

Miguel and Blake have known each other for years.  Both held a torch for each other but didn’t really know how to communicate that.

When Blake marries Miguel’s childhood friend, Diego, Miguel kind of retreats from friendship from both Blake and Diego.  It hurt my heart to see Miguel in such pain.  However, despite being rejected by his friend, Miguel still holds a candle for him. Also, Blake still has feelings for Miguel and so when the two of them get a second chance, even though there are bumps in the road, they are still striving to be with each other.

While I didn’t really like Blake a ton in this story, I really liked Miguel.  He was really hot in his Dom role and I really liked how patient he was with Blake.  Blake seemed a little whiny at times and I wanted to bonk him on the head when he kept playing with Miguel’s emotions and love.  But, in the end, both are looking for a deep, loving relationship – one where they can develop a family.  I liked that despite the poor excuse of a marriage that Blake had, he only wavered in his hope to find that with Miguel.

Overall, this book had some really hot scenes and the story is well planned out.  You really get to see what each character is thinking and why, which I thought helped in my understanding.

I would definitely read more Asher books.
