History has taught Devon DuCaine that dating can be uncomfortable, but there’s just something about Scott. He may be the opposite of Devon’s own long-haired, tattooed, free-wheeling spirit but he brings out the nurturer in Devon. Maybe it’s Scott’s surprising fascination with Devon’s motorcycle, or his shy surprise in moments of affection, but there’s more under those sensible suits than meets the eye. The most important person in Devon’s life, his mom, taught him love and compassion and that’s all he wants to share that with Scott.
Their one-night stand turns into a regular thing, but Scott doesn’t trust it to last. He’s pretty sure Devon is hiding something. He’s even more sure that once Devon gets to know him, the attraction will fade. And then there’s his mother. However many sparks fly between them, Devon will have his work cut out to convince Scott they can have their happily ever after.
(This book was first published as 2 short stories, but this new version has double the content from the originals.)
Scott and Devon are such opposites, with Scott being a geek and Devon being a manly man. When we meet them, Scott is just watching Devon sleep, thinking about how beautiful he is, but also wondering what Devon even sees in him.
Poor Scott, he's so insecure, feeling completely out of Devon's league. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Scott has major anxiety issues and often has panic attacks. Major kudos to the way K-lee Klein wrote this character. She writes Scott with so much knowledge, making him realistic and vulnerable. Scott has OCD and there are so many great examples of this in his story.
Devon, I absolutely adore Devon. I love his secret. I love his friends. And I find his hesitancy to be perfectly developed and explored.
Scott and Devon's tale includes insecurities, misunderstandings, secrets, pain, grief and more. It's fantastic!
But, most memorable of all is the "sleep stalking," as it's so beautiful, touching and sweet. If you haven't read Lazy Sundays yet, treat yourself and read it!
