    Starting over

    This is book # 2 in the Resilient series. I found that it can be read as a standalone, but I always caution readers that it is more enjoyable if you read them in order. Jeremy has lost everything that has been important to him. His husband Brent dies only a month or so before the baby they were about to have is stillborn. He cannot stay and act like things are normal, so he moves and tries to start over completely. When he meets Kai, he is surprised by the hottest experience of his life. Then he feels guilty that he is forgetting about his late husband. He ends up hurting Kai and not sure how to solve what has happened when he has no way to contact him. Then fate intervenes the hard way. His home is attacked and partially destroyed by teenage vandals. Jeremy wants to be understanding, but he also wants them to have some kind of punishment. Kai is the teacher to many of them and soon they have to see one another on a weekly basis. Kai and Jeremy end up getting together again, simply because the pull is so strong between them. Can they work things out to be more than friends and a hook up? It's going to take some soul searching and effort on both ends. I found this story to be many things. Sad, serious, funny, amazing, strong. I was impressed with the authors take on how real life can make you stronger if you let it. ***This ARC was given in exchange for an honest review only.

    4.5 stars- A second shot at happiness

    Signs of Life opens with massive heart break and I immediately knew I was in for quite the journey. I should expect not less from this author by now, but her ability to write characters with difficult or tragic pasts still floors me. Signs of Life was no different in that respect. There’s this honest quality to the characters and story that forces the reader out of their comfort zone to experience the tragic circumstances Jeremy endures and empathize with Kai’s troubled past. This is the second standalone book of the series. While there is minimal overlap of characters, it doesn’t overtly affect the characters or storyline if you haven’t read Everything Changes. However, it does offer a couple glimpses of Jase, who’s a close friend of Jeremy’s and the epilogue was a huge bonus for Carey and Jase fans. *happy sigh* There’s a lot of heartache in this book, and with both men’s pasts offering plenty of baggage, I was pleasantly surprised the dreaded plot points caused by failure to communicate were minimal. The characters were fairly up front about their feelings and expectations, so the focus remained squarely on the relationship development and personal character growth. I really liked the way the plot built around an extended timeline. It gave Jeremy the opportunity to work through the grief and self-destruct, ensuring it felt realistic when he starts exploring a relationship with Kai. I also liked the break in time between Kai and Jeremy’s initial lust-fueled encounter and their second meet-up, enabling the physical chemistry to morph into something more at a believable pace. Once again, Robert Nieman offers a great narration. There’s emotion, voice variations to match the characters and scene’s moods, and good pacing without it feeling overacted. I found Signs of Life to be a gripping story of characters overcoming personal loss and finding love on the other side of tragedy. While it didn’t quite blow me away like Everything Changes, the characters and romance were just as well-developed and I’d certainly recommend it. *Reviewed audiobook for Alpha Book Club*
