Trent Farnsworth moves to Falcon Pointe to get as far away from his controlling family and religion as he can. While his conservative upbringing makes it hard for Trent to admit he’s gay, he accidentally outs himself in front of his four new roommates. None of the men living at 959 Brenton Street are what the world would consider normal, but all four accept him for who he is. And when Trent falls for his much older landlord, Dr. Cory Venerin, he’s as surprised as anyone, but discovering Cory feels the same makes Trent realize he’s truly in the right place at the right time.
Until he tells his family he’s gay. His father uses any resource at his disposal to destroy him, including Trent’s love for Cory. As his father schemes to send Trent to a hospital whose sole purpose is to rip the gay out of him, Cory battles to save not only Trent—but also the possibility of a future together.
Now I really the characters in this book but I have to say I was not a huge fan of Trent’s character for parts of this book because of his whole undecided back and forth was a little bit annoying after awhile, but he eventually grew on me and I ended up liking his character by the end of this book. Also the spanking was a little odd mostly the whole cousin aspect of that kind of weirded me out a little bit. Now I do not mind a good spanking in a BDSM novel but for the reasons it was done in this book I have to be honest and say I am not sure how I feel about it. It just came across so odd to me.
Trent moves in with four other men when his dorm room falls through and lets just say he gets a wide variety of men as his roommates.
I did really like Trent and Cory together and I thought Cory was very good for Trent.
I loved the way this author wrote these characters “yes even Trent when he finally makes up his mind” and this story. The way each different personality was portrayed and the way all of these men care about each other just made me like this book so much more.
So all together I really liked this story!
I would recommend this book!
This is my first read by this author and it was a great book. I love when I find a new author and then love their work. This story had everything from drama, love and acceptance. I loved Cory and Trent and loved the secondary characters. I immediately felt the connection with Trent but it took me a little while to find that same connection with Cory. There was a slight little bit of BDSM (which is OK as I like those types of books) but it was more Cory being the dominate and a little spanking, lol. What I don’t like are people who try to force others into their way of thinking. The author was able to capture that and bring it to life, because I absolutely hated Trent’s parents.
As I read this book I kept saying to myself I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with for the remainder of the men at 959 Brenton Street.
Cory stood up and left the room, his footfalls a staccato beat on the stairs.
“Damn,” David said, grimacing. “I was kind of hoping to let you know about this later on. I mean, hell, you’ve just come out today. That should be enough of a shock.”
“What?” he asked nervously, beginning to wonder what they hadn’t told him. What the hell could they be covering up?
“Uh, this house is….” Alan said.
“Discipline based,” Greg filled in, handing him another muffin.
“What does that mean?” he asked. He took the sweet confection and nibbled on the corner.
“It means we keep to the rules or we come to a meeting with a very hard paddle,” David said wryly as Cory came down the stairs carrying in his hand what looked like a small breadboard. “Meet the enemy.”
They couldn’t possibly mean what he thought they meant. They were all grown men. Surely nobody paddled anyone else. That was… barbaric. He widened his eyes as he crossed one leg over the other.
And a turn-on apparently. What kind of freak was he, anyway?
Thianna likes to say she’s eclectic, fun, and just a bit naughty. She can also add, subtract, multiply, and divide in her head, but if people ask her to do it at parties, she isn’t impressed. While she would love to say there wasn’t a genre she had read that she didn’t enjoy, it would be a lie. For some reason, she keeps skipping to the ends of mystery books to find out who done it.
