#Review: Flawless by Cat Grant (Irresistible Attraction #4) @CatGrant2009

Flawless_225Steve Campbell used to be a player, until a mid-life crisis opened his eyes to his long-repressed love for Connor, his soon-to-be-married best friend and business partner. Coming out at thirty-eight means learning how to date all over again, and this time, Steve’s not willing to settle for empty one-night stands. He wants the real thing.

Gil Alvarez has never had it easy, struggling through childhood and rejected by his family for a body that didn’t match who he was inside. A skilled driver and mechanic, he’s working hard to make his auto shop a success. The last thing he needs is a rich white guy in a candy-apple red Ferrari tempting him, but Steve’s ready smile and easygoing manner prove irresistible.

One brief, intimate encounter leaves them both hungry for more. Gil’s not ashamed of who he is, but he’s terrified that Steve will reject him—or worse—when he discovers what Gil can’t find the courage to tell him.

review

First, let me make this introduction in case you have not figured it out by the cover.. This is a m/m story. If for some reason, m/m loving is not your thing – I still want you read this review, lol. There is always a first time for everything. But really though, you never know what you might be missing…

I have read the other books in this series and oh boy…. Let me just say that I finally get Steve’s story. Ms. Cat has created a series that has been very interesting to read. The relationships that Ms. Cat has introduced me to in this series are very real… You can fell their emotions and see their heartache. The characters come off the pages and into your heart. They nest inside until you understand their pain, grief, and passion. They want you to understand where they have been and what they dream of doing. They pull you in their world and don’t release you until the last page, even then… they keep you coming back for more…

Steve (if you read the other stories, you have already met Steve) is a man that has been in love with his best friend only to introduce his best friend to the man of his dreams. So, that leaves Steve odd man out. He is tired of being odd man out, he is tired of one night stands where he doesn’t remember the guys name, and he is tired of being lonely. But is he ready to commit to someone 100%… can he do that and give up his playboy lifestyle… But it seems the one person he is attracted too, he offends at every turn… Can Steve keep his foot out his mouth long enough to see if there is a mutual attraction.

Gil is a man with a past that is not easily shared. In fact, he does not like sharing his past with anyone in fear of rejection because that is a horrible feeling. A feeling that Gil knows all to well. You feel for Gil, you feel his struggles, you know his life is not an easy one. He knows how hard life is and how hard life can be especially to someone who is different… But can love actually happen for him, or will it mock him in the face. One man might be able to break all the walls Gil has built around his heart, if only the man can keep his foot out his mouth.

This story truly was a great story. The heat level in the story is not exactly high, but for this story, I thought that was touching because this story is a matter of the heart and soul more than it is about heating up the sheets. Don’t get me wrong, we all love some super hot loving, but to understand this story is to know the walk both men had to make in order to be where they are (emotionally, mentally and physically) in this story. They need each other more than they both know… but overcoming things might prove to be the hardest thing for both of them to do.

No one is Flawless… Now go get your own copy and find out!!!
