2.5 starsThis is one of those books I want to love, but just can't because there are too many things that don't add up for me. The 2 major things being (spoiler alert) that 1) James claims to love his husband, after all he stays with him even though he gets beaten up regularly, still he doesn't have any problems to screw Ethan. And No. 2 being that Ethan claims to be madly in love with James, yet when they separate for 6 months (which at first I didn't even realize because conveniently enough that fact is only mentioned on a passing through), Ethan had no problems at all to stick his dick everywhere where it was welcome. There were other things that made me often skip pages, but that's the gist of it I can't rate this. Why? It wouldn't be fair to the author. On one hand I really enjoyed this and on the other I absolutely hated it.I spent most of my time wanting to strangle James. Then the rest of the time I wanted to bitch slap Ethan. Okay, now that I got my anger out of the way, let's talk about the book.I do not condone cheating. I actually do not read a book if it contains cheating. I had no idea cheating was involved in this, but I read on. Could I understand where James was coming from? I think so, yes. The bar scene though, I could not understand. I can see being a flirt. Some people have a flirtatious personality. Some people need that reassurance that they "still have it". I think James was both of those he had the personality and needed reassurance. Flirting is different than actually doing something about it. Then I think about Ethan, he KNEW, yet it still continued. Why not be a friend? Why not just be there for comfort? Why did it need to go to the next level? Hell, I could even understand holding/cuddling on the couch (for James and the peace he felt around Ethan).I really liked Ethan until about 75% in. Then, I just said a big ole EFF YOU! and almost put the book down. I was hurt. I was pissed. I was sad for James. I wanted to punch Ethan in the throat, to be honest. Before then though, I thought he was great, loyal, and determined to get James to safety. I don't know what happened :(James, I guess I would have liked to be inside of his head. What was he thinking? How was he dealing with things? Why Ethan?Then we get the secrets bit, how can Ethan stand that? How can he forgive so easily? Why can't people talk/fight right then and there? Why does everything have to be put on hold and then never brought up again? Nothing ever gets accomplished that way. Spill it and then hash it out. I thought Ethan had a good point and James had a lousy excuse. Overall, this book pissed me off so much. Where was the supposed family? How can one sit back and watch DV happen over and over again and not do anything? I don't give a shit if the person being battered is a hot shot lawyer. :( I didn't feel the love between these two, at all. I don't know how you can say you love someone and do what Ethan did at around 75%. I don't know how you can say you love someone and do what James did at the end. If that's love, I don't want any part of it.
