Recreational Love (The Boys of Oregon Hill # 2) by Ian Lewis


“You still want to have sex? Because if that’s all you can handle right now, I’m prepared to keep it light, no strings attached.”

Michael Reynolds had it all. A successful real estate developer who could have any man he desired, but only on his terms. Recreational love was all Michael wanted; no feelings required, just a good time for the night. He only gave his heart away once, and twenty years later, he is reunited with the love of his life. Determined to win Spencer back, he agreed to a simple fling, no strings attached. Could he play by the rules of recreational love, or would he lose his heart instead?

Spencer Talbot returned home to escape rumors and gossip after being abandoned at the altar by his faithless fiancĂ©. Secretly relieved the wedding didn’t take place, all he wanted was a quiet place to lick his wounds and move on with his life. When his first love reappeared after decades apart, his world was turned upside down. The attraction between Spencer and Michael was overwhelming, but the timing couldn’t be worse. Giving in to his feelings would make him vulnerable, and he’d had enough rejection to last a lifetime. Could Spencer open himself to Michael and finally be with the only man he’d ever loved?

This is a second chance romance between reunited high school sweethearts. It features a wise aunt, an eccentric family, and a love that refuses to die. And of course, there’s a guaranteed happily ever after. This is the second book in The Boys of Oregon Hill series. Each book can be read as a stand alone novel.

My Rating - 4 Stars!

Ian Lewis' Recreational Love is a fun second chance romance. 

High school boyfriends, Spencer and Michael, haven't seen each other in years. Back then they were both closeted and their relationship was secret. Both fell victim to their parents planning their lives for them, and went their separate ways.  

I enjoy the fact that their old breakup seems right, as opposed to a fight or misunderstanding. 

Now, 20 years later, they are reunited and still love each other. But Spencer is still struggling with how to move on with his life after breaking things off with his ex.

Their story is one of fear, pain, and cutting the apron strings from your controlling father. Their path to each other is not easy, as Spencer really makes Michael work a little too hard to win him. The writing style is good, with a great pace and the story is riveting. We get some drama added into the mix, as well as some strong chemistry and intense feelings. 

With Recreational Love, Ian Lewis has definitely entertained me and left me happy. Now I need to go and read the first book in the series.
