    The first half of this book was really interesting, but I began to get a bit worried when nothing had happened between the two men and it was getting over 50%. And annoyingly, the blurb gives away the entire book - a bit more of mystery around Ben and Ashleigh's eventual divorce would've been great. Instead, I spent ages waiting for this to happen and suddenly, like a light switch, Ben realises that he could be gay. With absolutely no hints or anything, he decides he's been in denial.

Instead, I spent ages waiting for this to happen and suddenly, like a light switch, Ben realises that he could be gay. With absolutely no hints or anything, he decides he's been in denial. I understand that Lane was trying to show that he was in denial, but it just came across as lazy writing to me. Lane could've put in at least SOME hints but there was nothing. I also feel like there was much more time spent on Ashleigh and Ben's relationship, and even that of Tobias and Jer, than Tobias and Ben themselves. These two chatted a few times, Ben decided he was gay, and then bam. Suddenly the ending was upon me. I was hoping to have more on Ashleigh being a huge pest with the divorce and Tobias helping Ben out with it, but that didn't happen at all. It just... ended. As if Lane had just gotten bored with writing, lost his motivation and put together a quick ending. I wish that Ben and Tobias could've had more distinct characters as well. They were so similar. And I wanted to put my head through a wall every time Tobias kept saying 'I'm an absolute asshole etc' because the way it was delivered, it came across as unrealistic, or at least Tobias fishing for Ben to say 'oh no, you're not an asshole at all!'. I wanted to see Tobias being the manipulative jerk he kept saying he was, but he never did so it was unrealistic to me. Anyway, bit of a let down.

    A guy who just suddenly decides he may be, kinda sorta, is almost...gay? It would have been nice to give the reader a small hint because all we're subjected to throughout the entire book is how absolutely certain Ben is that he isn't gay because he's never been attracted to men. See, the thing with "in denial" closet cases in literature; you're supposed to let the reader in on the possibility of there being something there. Instead, it's Ben being all, "Well, I really like Tobias as a friend, but A guy who just suddenly decides he may be, kinda sorta, is almost...gay?

Instead, it's Ben being all, "Well, I really like Tobias as a friend, but oh well, never found dudes hot." Then, out of fucking nowehere, he's all, "Hey, Tobias, guess what? I think I might be gay, dude." *Sigh*

    More like 2.5. The idea was good - execution not so good. Due to it being a series, you are left wondering what happens next if you are so inclined to continue reading the series, however, I'm not inclined!

    This barely made it to two stars. First of all, did anyone proofread this thing before it was published? There are so many errors throughout, but especially in the first couple of chapters. In the first chapter alone morning and evening, am and pm are mixed up repeatedly. I had a hard time getting into this story. I’m not a big fan of GFY anyway since it is so hard to make it believable and this one was no different. There really weren’t any characters that I found very likeable.

There really weren’t any characters that I found very likeable. Tobias came across as a creepy predator, Patrick was obnoxious, Jeremiah was just sad, Ashleigh was no different than the pathetic rich housewives Tobias represented, and Ben was just a doormat. And as the GFY part - Ben suddenly having this revelation when his wife files for divorce - not at all believable. It was made even less believable by the sex scene with Tobias. Is the author a Gay man? If so, then he should know that nobody is that easily penetrated that easily and painlessly without any kind of preparation, especially their first time! I know this is the first of a three-book series, but there is absolutely nothing about this storyline that makes me want to read the next two.

    2.5 ⭐️ It needed to be fleshed out a bit more. I know that it's the first part of a trilogy, but it could have gone deeper on a few things. Like Ben's relationship with his wife, it seemed a bit rushed for my taste. I did like the characters, that was were there was enough depth for me. On the fence about reading the other two.

    2.5 stars. The blurb on the book is somewhat false, because the 2 MCs know each other before the attack, and the attack doesn't happen until more than halfway through the book. I actually found the story a little irritating: Tobais (don't call him Toby) kept saying over and over what a terrible person he was and Ben was like a floor mat, letting his *itchy wife walk all over him.

    I have to wring Chad's neck. This could have been such a cool story and it started so well. How could you??? You have a boss here who is gay, who has some issues and a bit of commitment phobia, a long term gay friend (with benefits) who pines for him and a gay employee who would love to get into his pants. And then you have the new guy. Straight, married, temporary employee and committed to his work. He catches the boss' eye but because of all the reasons I mentioned before it can never be, or ca I have to wring Chad's neck. This could have been such a cool story and it started so well.

He catches the boss' eye but because of all the reasons I mentioned before it can never be, or can it...? We see the other side of a straight man's life. The struggle to make ends meet, to keep a marriage alive and the wife happy. Unfortunately (but good for the boss) he fails in pretty much everything. After an invitation to after business drinks he starts talking to his boss and between both of them a budding friendship developes. Yeah, nothing happens, so far, so good. Next time they go out, (view spoiler)[the boss gets mugged (hate crime), the new guy gets him home, the best friend takes over the care, boss colapses, ends up in hospital, the best friend rings the new guy, new guy misses his work (no work = no pay)to visit boss in hospital, (hide spoiler)] new guy brings him home, they end up in bed, have the best sex ever and best friend ends up with gay employee. Everyone is happy. Right? Wrong. I am not happy. Wtf happened? Did you have to go somewhere? Having an important appointment? The end was so rushed, compared to the beginning of the story so unlogical, the explanation why a gay guy and a straight guy end up in bed having sex so pulled out of a hat, too quick too early, too everything. I know they are fictional characters but first time still hurts. A straight guy even if he turns out to have a different sexual orientation but has had that suppressed because of his upbringing, his social environment, his love for his wife, who is confused and maybe a bit ashamed by his attraction to his boss is not going to go all the way the first time. This book seemed to me like it had two parts. The first part, where the characters are introduced and a storyline developes, that has everything a good romance should have and the second part, an accumulation of reasons so that two guys end up in bed and have sex. I love smut, don't get me wrong, but it is only good if it is by itself or fits. Here it did not fit at all.

What makes the process more tolerable, is having someone with you that understands what you are going through. Lane gives us two flawed human beings, with thoughts, feelings just like everyone else. This is a modern romance with old fashioned values that everyone can enjoy. Place is in the city, so many people can visualize without Lane having to bog us down with lengthy descriptions or boring landscapes. We see city and outlaying areas, urban and suburb. There is a bit of sex but nothing that mature adults can withstand. Lane shows what happens with a marriage of convenience or when one party loves more than another-in both straight and gay relationships. There isn't a one-stop fixes all nor is there fault thrown in anyone's faces. Lane shows that feelings change and we can't change who we love. Lane does a really good job with characterizations, no one over-the-top, no one mealy-mouthed either. A good balance, in my humble opinion. There is a good pace to the short story, there wasn't an overlooked feeling. I give 5 stars.

    This was a sweet easy read about a lonely lawyer and a miserably married temp who find love despite the fact one is married and straight and the other is single and gay.

All in all though it was an easy way to spend some time, the characters were a bit one note and could have done with some further development but it is what it is, and what it is is an enjoyable, easy read.

I just thought there should have been a little more to them getting together other then just Ben blinking and suddenly being gay, especially like 2 hours after his wife decided they were getting a divorce. I don't know... the story wasn't bad it just was TOO SIMPLE

    I was pretty disappointed with this book. The plot was fine but the author seemed unable to connect the dots believably. There wasn't enough development of the characters- the narrative didn't match up with the characters actions. There were quite a few technical errors as well: timeline not matching up, keys stolen but no problem getting in an upscale (presumably locked) house, people meeting but then are strangers later on.

    I liked the characters and story line. The ending felt a little rushed but as the next two books are out I'm ok with it. I really liked Ben. He's doing his best while everything is falling apart. He just keeps trying. I loved his optimism that he and his wife would get through their rough patch. When, even that, fell apart there was still hope for his life to get better. Tobias on the other hand is so jaded by his life that almost nothing has meaning. Then in a moment Ben's light infects Tobias I liked the characters and story line.

    It's OK to be gay, but.... Sometimes authors make it seem like it is a brief transition from straight to gay or bisexual, but the most important challenge is the mental and spiritual demands that are often skipped over or ignored. This author did a good job of trying to include many of the issues that prey on all the relationships and all relatives, friends, and associates. It is worth the time to read and enjoy, even if not gay.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. This story was just not very believable. There was little character development, and no real spark between the the MC's. The straight guy is oblivious to his wife's cheating ways and complete lack of affection towards him but he remains utterly devoted to her; yet less than 24 hours after she tells him that she's leaving him he realizes he may be gay and jumps into bed--and a relationship--with his boss. Puh-leeze!

    I want more... I really want this romance between Tobias and Ben to continue. I hope the next book in this series revolves around them. There is so much more to be explored in their relationship. What they feel for each other is so new to both of them that the door is left wide open to be a continuous story line in the sequel. I really enjoyed both characters and the characters around them.

    Another short one. Seems to be my thing these days. Still, it was a cute story. Given the title, we have an idea of what to expect. Though short, I do have some clear emotions about this story. First, I hate Ashleigh. I knew I would from the first scene she's in. Next, I like Ben. Tobias would take some extensive growing on me to get used to. Again, I rather wish it was longer, but I'm not dissatisfied. At least Ben finds some happiness in the end, which he was obviously missing with ashleigh

    While I liked this book it still felt like something was missing. Both men seem very attractive but there is the feeling that something in there past has made them the way they are. While Mr Lane gives us some details I don't feel it was enough to figure out the guys and they way they feel. Some parts seemed to have been rushed. I may have to read the next to see if it answers any of my unaswered questions.

    3,5 stars. Chad Lane is autobuy for me, because the books are entertaining and rather light without being sugary. I felt that in Finding Him the author delivered a story that's better written and had more depth than the previous works. It's nice to witness an author grow and I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Wow!! This story was great. The awakening of a younger man after, a devastating break up with his wife, he's so unsure of his own sexuality. Love the intensity of the feelings of these two men. Enjoy a longer story, not just sex.
