S.E.X. Review~ Admissible Behavior by Jenna Byrnes

Take one smart, sexy lawyer with tattoos covering his body. Add a macho, handsome Texan with a liquid-gold accent and enough hang-ups to drive a lawyer to commit a crime.
When Alex West told his parents he was gay they said, “Okay. What do you want for supper?” He grew into a happy, well-adjusted man and a sharp-as-a-tack lawyer. He has it all—except someone to call his own. Meeting Kyle Harbor for the first time, lots of thoughts run through his mind. Most of them dirty. Finally, someone sexy and available, and what a catch.
Kyle Harbor grew up with a homophobic father who spent years convincing him what ‘real men’ did and didn’t do. They definitely didn’t fool around with one another, and Kyle got a summer at Bible Camp to convince him. Married for nearly twenty years, he finally decided his beautiful wife deserved better and divorced her. Now he’s looking for love in all the wrong places when he stumbles upon Alex and sparks fly. Can he battle his demons from the past, or is their relationship doomed before it even gets a chance?
Reader Advisory: This book contains references to homophobically motivated physical child abuse, some brief references to drug use, one brief reference to gang rape, and implications of a ‘gay conversion program’ in backstory.

Admissible Behavior, book two in Jenna Byrne's Marked Men series was an overall nice addition to the series. 

I thoroughly enjoyed the story and especially loved the secondary characters, but didn't connect with the main characters until closer to the end of the book.

Kyle, a closeted divorced man with a daughter had a difficult time reconciling the fact that gay men could live meaningful familial lives. Alex on the other hand, was proudly out with a loving network of family and friends.

Kyle was a pretentious prig who wanted everything his way- right, wrong, or indifferent. I felt he used Alex and preyed on his feelings, all the while Alex allowing him to do so. I would have given Kyle the boot and not let the door hit him in the a..

Eventually, Kyle redeemed himself and found happiness within himself which in turn allowed him to find happiness with Alex.
