The previous book concluded with a sort of a "promise" from Jake that there is more to come between him and Adrien. Jake really WANTS Adrien, yet he is still reluctant to part with the way he sees his ideal life - with a wife (a female one..) and kids. Yet he truly cares about Adrien and everything he does in general and specifically FOR Adrien shows exactly that. Adrien is walking on egg shells when Jake's homosexuality is concerned and yet it's clear to him that no matter what, Jake is a really good friend even if he is struggling with his true desires.
The book begins with Adrien being restless, from the writer's block he is in, from Jake's behavior and the fact that there is no relationship to speak of between them - so he goes on "vocation" to the house he inherited from his beloved grandmother.
Since this is Adrien we are talking about, when he arrives at the house the first thing he encounters is a dead body, but after calling the police and returning to the point he saw the body - it's gone.. Then while snooping around he gets hurt which alerts Jake to the fact that Adrien is NOT home and is in the hospital with a head injury. He comes for the rescue. This time together, in a big house and a time out from their lives and mainly from "society's eye", allows Jake and Adrien to be more domestic. I don't think their relationship could have progressed that much if they were both home with their everyday life.
A nice enough read. I'll be continuing to the next one. I sure hope it's going to be better. I've heard SO MUCH about this series I'm going to read it all anyhow. But I want to be pleasantly surprised and be able to add another author to my reading list.
