    BRILLIANT I FELL HARD FOR THESE TWO MEN!!! 10/10

    BRILLIANT I FELL HARD FOR THESE TWO MEN!!! 10/10 WOW WHAT A BRILLIANT TALE ABOUT BEING EXCEPTED FOR WHO YOU ARE!!! AND LOVING YOURSELF FOR WHO YOU ARE!!! Tim Ratliff is the son of parents who believe they know what is best for their sons. They grew up with beliefs and morals and if their sons go off the path they believe they can be brought back on track after all its only a faze right?? Tim is not impressed to be tricked into his mother work to pick up a job application form to say Lorraine is over powering is an understatement. He had recently finished his time at college with a chemistry degree, and was now looking for a job but although the company his mum works for would be a dream for Tim to work for. He just knew he couldnt work with his mother!!! She was still trying to run his life and he knew she would never except that he was gay. But sadly he wasn't getting anywhere with his applications that he had filled in on line and was currently working in a chicken restaurant just so he would have some money. As he is leaving his mothers office he notices on sexy bum of a man who was working on a photocopier but he just wanted to get out of his mums office so made a quick exit and got to work. Carson Eddinger is once again trying to get the photocopier back online when he sees a very sexy bum walk past him into the lions den that is Lorraine in Human Resources. Lord that woman did not like Carson and didnt bother to hide the fact! But when he heard the man call Lorraine mum Carson's blood turned cold. what a waste! When it was lunch time him and his 2 friends Wes and Angela were quick to escape to go get some fast lunch. And end up going to where the sexy man is working unbeknown to Carson. Wes is quick to notice how Carson looks at Tim and ends up going over and slipping him a note. And this note changes everything for these two fine young gentlemen. And that's all you are getting because there are so many twists and turns in this book omg I couldnt put it down. Watching Tim grow in confidence and learning about Carsons past. Its amazing. I went through every emotion the anger I felt for Tim not being excepted for who he is and the tricks and schemes some people would go to be proven right. We also learn about Tims brother who went through something similar. Its an outstanding read of how true love wins and boy does it win. A FANTASTIC READ 10/10 I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Steamy, tense journey into adulthood and romance

    I would rate this 4.5 stars. At 22, Tim is still being controlled by his mother, Lorraine, a HR specialist at a pharmaceutical company, where she is desperate to get him a job. Carson, who also works there, is on Lorraine's bad side and it becomes increasingly clear it's because he's gay. Lorraine's hatred, and need to control, spurs Carson into getting to know Tim a little better--and Tim certainly doesn't mind. As attraction turns to love and friendship, Carson is increasingly the port in the storm that Tim needs to break free from the increasing danger he doesn't even understand he is in. As a young adult trying to flee the nest, Tim is completely age appropriate teetering between childish dreams and naivety, with startling moments of insight and strength. Carson has had no choice but to be a realist after learning his own harsh lessons about failed family relationships. Since the POV switches between the two of them, it's sad to read enough to extrapolate Carson's experiences and witness the loss of Tim's innocence. Happily, Carson's support and care allows Tim the time to catch up to reality. The genius of this book is Carson's realization that when he tells Tim what to do, things don't go well, but when he lets Tim make his own decisions, mistakes and all, that's actually the way to be a good friend and partner, rather than be another controlling parental figure--especially with their inequities and age gap. I believe what Carson believes wholeheartedly, "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." Carson's friend, a chemist named Wes, is a chaos-agent I wish was more rounded out. Ditto the coworker Angie, although she does indeed prove herself to be a "wonderful, wonderful human being." The star here is Carson's old math teacher Mrs. Hedstrom, who happens to be Tim's neighbor. Tim's brother Paul and his wife Miyoko round out the cast. I guess Paul didn't want to poison the well with Tim about Lorraine; maybe he didn't think Tim would believe him. Obviously Carson's relationship with his neighbor John is close since Carson shows trust in him, but it wasn't explored at all. What at first seemed funny and annoying, soon turned scary, filling me with tension and anxiety. Sexual tension builds throughout the book as Tim navigates many firsts. This is all leading to the inevitable conclusion, mostly where I wanted it to go. I'm sorry for this spoiler, but my concern, after reading the whole book, is that actions have consequences; it was disheartening to see violent behavior not prosecuted. Still, watching Tim grow through this journey was as amazing as watching Carson release his tight hold on the past. I was rooting for them! I'm glad the epilogue reminded us all that friends are the family we choose. Well written, engaging, with likeable and relatable characters, this was more than I expected from the blurb.

    Romance

    I really enjoyed this book. Tim is twenty-two and has always been under his mother's thumb, afraid to stand up to her and just be himself. Carson is thirty-three and went through the same thing Tim did but broke free. I like that with Carson's help Tim learns to grow and become his own person.

    a sexy romantic older younger story

    This book may be mildly disturbing for people who have been abused. Tim, a 22 year old is firmly under his mother's heel. A work place prank ends up with Carson's phone number in his laundry. Unfortunately the mother from hell finds it. She starts torturing him. Carson, about 32, came from an even more abusive background. He tries to talk Tim through the necessary steps to become certain enough of himself so he can man up and tell his parents that he is of age to make his own decisions. Of course the overbearing parents disagree. Overall, I loved this book. The main characters and antagonists are so similar to people i have met. At times funny, at times sweet. This is a great read.

    Tim finds his path...

    This was an interesting read and a good lesson to parents out there with control issues. Tim a young man who just graduated college is trying to find his way in the world but unfortunately like most young adults in this day and age relies on his parents. He has an AWFUL, controlling power hungry mother with a nasty attitude. Her nasty attitude is extended out to her coworkers...one guy in particular she hates is Carson. Carson is a wonderful gay man whose only fault in her eyes is being homosexual who can corrupt her young son. One day her son, Tim and Carson meet and all Hades breaks loose. There's an instant connection and they follow up on it. With all her awful antics, their relationship grows stronger and Tim finally sees her for what she is and finds his path...which leads to freedom, happiness and love with Carson. A very nice romance.
