Chasing the Rainbow
by Kade Boehme
I have been in a complete slump with books lately and was beginning to lose all hope at finding a book that just grabbed me and hit all the right places. That was until Kade Boehme.
Jody has always known he wasn’t completely straight, after divorcing his wife of 6 months, he is now is now ready to be the man he was always meant to be. At 29-years old, he spends most of his time working in a bookstore and the rest with his head in his favorite m/m romance novels. He is a total sweetheart who wears his heart on his sleeve and tends to overthink things. Ultimately, though, he’s done kissing frogs and wants his Price Charming, his happily ever after.
Bobby is playing catch up with his life. Ater being with a woman for 12 years, Bobby comes out to his now ex and his brother, Carlos, that he is gay. Fast forward 4 years and 36-year old Bobby is still stuck in the same place of not wanting a serious relationship and still in the closet, worried his Catholic, old fashioned Italian mother, and older brother will disown him. Between working as a contractor for the family business, which he loves, and his one night stands, Bobby finds his peaceful place
Jody and Bobby have known each other for awhile, their exes are friends but after Jody came out and moved away, they lost touch. As fate would have it, they would run into each other when Jody is returning something to his ex, Bobby is asked to give him a ride. A total set up from Jody’s ex-wife in my opinion.
These two hit if off instantly and are never at a loss for conversation, especially being book lovers. Jody is completely bummed at crushing on a “straight” guy until a little misunderstanding has Bobby coming out and setting him right and setting things in motion for them.
Bobby blows hot and cold with Jody, and honestly, I could happily have called him an asshole had it not been for the dual pov.
Bobby is trying so hard to hold on to what is now his “norm”, and Jody throws him completely off kilter. Poor Jody doesn’t know if he’s coming or going with Bobby and finally stands his ground and lays it all out there, giving Bobby that little push he needed to take a leap of faith to bring down those walls and his insecurities.
Awe the feels <3
These two are so freakin’ loveable and more importantly, REAL!
The sex, come on, you know you were wondering about that and it’s freakin’ hot AF. The suit sex? *fans face* off the charts.
These two face some real life difficulties and overcome fears and insecurities on both parts. Such an amazing story, I want more!
