A wonderfully, light story by Ari McKay, Knitting a Broken Heart Back Together left this reader smiling with a sense of warmth.
Jason and Tomy were kind men who deserved happiness and love. Unfortunately for Tomy, the man he thought was his One turned out to be a dud, which became fortuitous for Jason.
I loved the fact the main characters were not necessarily the typical “male” dominated occupation found in most books. Jason, a former pro football player, owned and operated a knitting/yarn shop, and himself very adept with the needles. Tomy, Argentinian decent, ran the family business of a dance studio, additionally being an award winning competitor.
The slow burn and Jason’s wooing of Tomy after the relationship debacle was sweet and progressive. Jason was patient, kind, and ever so loving; allowing Tomy to feel valued and cherished. Tomy’s skittishness and apprehension soon became a thing of the past with Jason’s friendship. The dance scenes heightened the overall chemistry between the two men and produced a sexual tension that radiated through the pages. Kudos Ari McKay for leaving me breathless through the sexual heat of a beautifully written dance!
I adored the secondary characters. The popular (and sometimes matchmaking) knitting circle, Tomy’s mom and sister, all enhanced the story, giving it more depth and a better insight into the personalities of the main characters.
Ari McKay delivered a building of friendship to love, not always an easy road, and did it with clarity and grace.
