Facing a custody battle that threatens to rip his young son from his life, librarian Bronson McKinnon is hyper-vigilant, not wanting to give his ex-wife any ammunition to use against him in court.
Kindergarten teacher Nash Spencer is fresh off a bad break-up. Meeting the handsome single father on the first day of school is the last thing his battered heart needs, but he’s drawn to Bronson.
With the help of Bronson’s five year old, Tucker, the men start spending time together. Despite Bronson’s fears of his sexuality costing him custody of his son, he can’t help developing feelings for his son’s teacher. When Tucker shows up to school with bruises, Nash is pulled into the court case, and the custody battle turns into an all-out war.
Are Bronson’s and Nash’s feelings for each other strong enough to win the day or will their love become a casualty in Bronson’s fight to save his son?
I read several stories by Pandora Pine now and this was similar to the latest book in her Student Bodies series with including a child into the story but on so many level different.
The setting is a town in Massachusetts where kindergarden teacher Nash is meeting Bronson, the father of Tucker, a witty, smart charming boy of five years old.
It is really sweet how well Pandora Pine developed the relationship between Bronson and his son and between Nash and Tucker. The pieces are fitting well together and the genuine attraction and the deep feelings are believable even if there it is a fast event.
The focus in the book lies on the father-son-relationship and how the ex-wife Alice is trying to do everything to disturb the piece. It makes you angry how she is displayed in the book and you have little sympathy for her.
Bronson and Nash, as well as Tucker, soon capture your heart and it hard to see how they have to go such many troubles.
The sex scenes are hot, I like how well balanced both guys are. But it’s not only the physical interaction, it’s the deep bond you are fascinated with.
I really liked how the events went, how the character were displayed, especially Tucker showed a maturity I was impressed still he behaved like a five year old.
I can’t wait to read the other books in the series, I can guess who’s next. :3
I give this 4.5 out of 5 stars.
