S.E.X. Review~ The Half of Us by Cardeno C.

If short-tempered Jason can open his heart and life to optimistic Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.

Short-tempered, arrogant heart surgeon Jason Garcia grew up wanting a close-knit family, but believes he ruined those dreams when he broke up his marriage. The benefit of divorce is having as much random sex as he wants, and it's a benefit Jason is exploiting when he meets a sweet, shy man at a bar and convinces him to go home for a no-strings-attached night of fun.

Eight years living in Las Vegas hasn't dimmed Abe Green's optimism, earnestness, or desire to find the one. When a sexy man with lonely eyes propositions him, Abe decides to give himself a birthday present—one night of spontaneous fun with no thoughts of the future. But one night turns into two and then three, and Abe realizes his heart is involved.

For the first time, Abe feels safe enough with someone he respects and adores to let go of his inhibitions in the bedroom. If Jason can get past his own inhibitions and open his heart and his life to Abe, he might finally find the family he craves.

The Half of Us told the story of surgeon Jason Garcia and the ups and downs of a broken marriage, children he rarely saw, and a new man in his life that he wasn’t’ dating.

Jason and Abe are the perfect opposites attract couple as they waded through the initial hook-up, murky waters of potential dating to the eventual we’re an item.

What I loved about this book was that the love was not instantaneous. Yes, there’s lust and a heady dose of sex, but Cardeno C. permitted the characters to discover each other and build a relationship based on finding themselves.

I found myself cheering for Jason and Abe, while wanting to throttle Jason and his inability to commit to anything. Abe’s kill ‘em with kindness not only won over Jason, but his ex-wife and children too.

Funny moments~ crazy espresso machine…I have to admit that I laughed out loud and got some looks. Did I care? Absolutely not! A Cardeno C. books always brings a smile to my face and make my heart feel lighter.

Cardeno C. has the uncanny ability to choose the perfect narrator for her books. I’ve listened to quite a few Cardeno C. audio books and Ezekiel Robison did not disappoint. The inflection in his voice, the change over for each character and the suitable nuances to distinguish between funny moments had me intrigued and ready to listen to the entire book in one sitting.

Listening to The Half of Us was a total joy.
