Bran Kendrick never expected to fall in love. He's asexual, after all. What chance does he have of finding someone who'll see past that? So when Malachi Warren catches his eye, Bran tells himself his crush will pass. Malachi disagrees. He has been attracted to Bran for some time, something he is delighted to find Bran reciprocating. They begin to date and feel their way through an intimate relationship that meets both their needs.

Suddenly Bran finds himself juggling a new boyfriend, a demanding job, and a college degree he's not sure he wants, but he couldn't be happier-until a series of seemingly random accidents befall Malachi. When they escalate, Bran realizes someone is trying to take away the best thing that ever happened to him, and he must scramble to keep Malachi safe while they search for the would-be killer.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage This book was garbage. I didn't like one single character, though I may have liked the attempted murderer if he wasn't so incompetent and had actually killed the MCs. For someone who spends the first few chapters whining about how no one would ever want to date him because he is ace and could never give them sex (which is what relationships are clearly all about), he goes on to participate in a whole slew of sexual activities in the short time he and Mal have been least 1/2 of it during the multitude of times Mal ends up in the hospital. I also found it funny that considering Bran and Mal respect each others feelings on sex, it irked me that Bran was like, "PDA makes my brother uncomfortable, so don't mind him and just keep grinding up on me and swallowing my face." Not only is this just written poorly, it clearly wasn't overly well thought out. Mal was so in love with his deceased ex that he was going to propose to her; yet, he hadn't so much as seen a picture of her brother, that she was so very close to that it drove her brother to attempt homicide, so that when he popped into Mal's life, Mal didn't know who he was? Really? Not that that is actually addressed by the author....I mean, I guess he could have gotten a bunch of plastic surgery to disguise himself.... And Bran's whole coming-out scene to his brother bothered me too. First he says he isn't interested in dating (isn't that what he is doing with Malachi). Then he goes on to say asexuals don't feel sexual desire, which isn't really accurate, they don't feel asexual attraction, which I feel is different. He describes himself as a textbook ace....the asexual spectrum is so large that one can hardly call anyone a "textbook asexual". I feel like calling him a textbook misrepresent asexuals so much, and we already have enough of that going on as is. This book just disappointed me on so many different levels. I'm glad I'm finally done it, as I'm done with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coffee Cake Well written gay romance between Bran, who is asexual, and Malachi, a guy he has had a crush on for awhile. They find themselves falling in love on their dates. A refreshing contemporary romance. Worth it!
