Ethan is working hard to pay down his debt and comes across Mike in the laundromat one night. Intrigued by the man, Ethan tries to talk to him but is rebuffed, only for Mike to show up at Ethan’s door injured from a fight. Ethan offers to let Mike stay with him to recover, giving the pair time to grow closer.
This is the classic dynamic of one super loving and emotive partner and one brusque and stubborn partner. It’s not bad for a quick read. This tells the story well, has some heat, and is pretty low on the angst. The main couple has good chemistry but it’s a little shallow in the way that more pages to tell their stories and get together would have really helped this out. 3.5 out of 5.
