Life, Some Assembly Required Kaje Harper

Finding love in the ashes was easy. Building a life together? Don’t make Fate laugh.

After spending the first part of his life chasing pretty girls, love has finally come to Ryan in the form of John, a tall, lanky, red-headed landscape architect with wide shoulders and a five-o’clock shadow.

For the first time in his life, love feels easy. Hell, he even ran into a burning building for John and his son, and he’d do it again if he had to. But telling his father and brothers “I’m gay. I’ve met a man”? That’s a bumpy ride he’s not looking forward to.

For John, loving Ryan is as natural as breathing. Now if only the rest of his life would fall into place. Dealing with his teen son is complicated enough, but with his ex-wife causing trouble and his daughter wanting to move in, John’s house—and his relationship with Ryan—threaten to split at the seams.

Would one month without a new surprise knocking him upside the heart be asking too much? If the sound of Fate’s laughter is any indication, the answer must be yes…

Product Warnings
Contains two formerly straight guys learning to navigate the gay-guy waters, sometimes without a paddle. Plus six kinds of family ensuring nothing comes easy.

Imperfectly Perfect

So The Rebuilding Year left off with Ryan telling his father that he had met someone “Dad, I’ve met this man….”.  This book was a little harder to read than Book 1, simply because of the adversity Ryan and John faced with each of their families.

I have to tell you I loved John’s daughter Torey, she was the shizznick in this book.   Thought Ryan’s brother Brent was a big ole ass and I could just kiss Drew.
This book takes through a pending divorce, one nasty ass homophobic soon-to-be ex-husband and a very pregnant ex-wife.

Dear Cheesus lets talk about Cynthia the EX, WTH?  She cheats, she divorces, she takes the kids to LA, and then she comes full circle and ask a question like that toward the end?  She really was no shame, and someone who really got on my last nerve.

I really enjoyed The Rebuilding Year, I thought this book kind of dragged in certain areas, but overall I really enjoyed “the joys of first time gay sex”.
