    cute couple

    I struggled with this first High Rise book in the beginning. Well, more like about 60% of the way through. There is a lot, and I do mean a lot, of internal monologue. So much so that it felt like I was never going to get to the romance. Jeremiah and Collin clearly have sexual chemistry, and I did start to warm up to Jeremiah when he seemed to prefer taking things slowly with some build-up to intimacy. The blurb hints at an out for you story, but really, the only time Jeremiah seemed to be keeping any secrets is with his immediate family. He has no problem with public displays of affection or even drawing attention to himself and Collin in a crowd of people, so I didn't really get the out for vibe from this story. There are also a couple of other plotlines going on in the periphery, but some things almost felt like an outline rather than fleshing out those characters and their stories. Nevertheless, by the last half of the book, I had warmed up to these characters, and Jeremiah and Collin had won me over. They are adorable together once they get comfortable with each other and start to figure things out. In the end, there were things I liked and things I didn't about this one, but this is my first read by Jayce Ellis and I will check out the next in the High Rise series to see how things go. Not everything was all tied up by the end of Jeremiah, so hopefully, we'll get some answers as the series progresses.

    Sometimes instant attraction doesn't lead to insta

    Paramedic, Jeremiah happens upon a sexy man one night when they're both returning home. Colin is trying to get his two drunk friends into their apartment. There's fire between the two of them when their eyes meet...but Colin, with his sexy lip-gloss seems reluctant to get involved. Fast forward... and Jeremiah finds himself needing to look for a job due to takeover. In a twist-of-fate, he ends up bumping into Colin again and they agree to meet up to work on Jeremiah's resume. I felt like this book was mostly about finding your way. Jeremiah and Colin are both on journies, and there are barriers in their way. One of the biggest barriers for Jeremiah is that he isn't out to his entire family. He's always thought that one day, he would just take his boyfriend home and that would be it. Turns out it hasn't been that easy for him. But coming out is more than just saying the words... sometimes, you encounter opinions that you didn't expect. On the other hand, Colin is out to everyone but he doesn't know what he wants to do with his life. He thinks the right answer is to say that he's not into a long-term relationship, but maybe that's what he needs? His character went through a lot of subtle growth in the novel and I think he was my favorite character. This is a contemporary love story, packed full of diversity. In fact, I loved the diversity! It's pretty much got something for everyone! It's a little light on plot... mostly, it's just about the two main characters making their decisions and then their coming together.
