Review: Crossroads by Riley Hart

(Crossroads #1) 
by Riley Hart
Genre: M/M
Publication Date: 28 July 2015

After divorcing the woman he’d been with since he was seventeen, Nick Fuller is starting over. He owns the restaurant of his dreams and he’s determined to meet new people, find new passions, and experience life to its fullest. Easier said than done—that is until he meets his new neighbor, Bryce Tanner…

Bryce is all about a good time. He plans to show Nick how it’s done, help him meet a few women, and enjoy the gift of the single life he’s been given. But things don’t go as planned, and soon they realize they’d rather be together than with anyone else.

Neither man has ever wanted another guy, but there’s a connection between them from the start—a spark they can’t deny. They find themselves navigating an unfamiliar new world and dealing with unforeseen obstacles. Physical desire isn’t enough, and now Nick and Bryce are at a crossroads. They have to decide which way to go: the easy path they’ve always followed, or the one that's determined to trip them up at every turn.

( 3 stars )

The good
Is my first double GFY. For those who don't understand the term, it means both the heroes are heterosexual before they meet each other. Apparently, I still learn something new from GR friends.

I like reading about how two gay virgins trying to figure out how to have anal sex with each other. I enjoyed reading their awkwardness and Bryce's bedroom problem. 

The bad
At times the story feel too slow and draggy. I actually took 3 days to finish this book and decided to sleep early two nights in a row. Hmm...

Lack of interesting subplot beside their romance and coming out to the family. They both simply spend too much time cooking, talking and eating. It felt a tad mundane.
