S.E.X. Review~ Strong Enough by Cardeno C.

When a casual hookup turns into the potential for love, staid Spencer realizes he wants to build a life with vibrant Emilio.
When twenty-two-year-old Emilio Sanchez sees handsome Spencer Derdinger walking by his construction site, Emilio makes it his goal to seduce the shy professor. Getting Spencer into bed isn’t difficult, but Emilio soon learns that earning the trust of a man deeply hurt will take time and patience. With a prize like brilliant, sweet Spencer on the line, Emilio decides he is strong enough to face the challenge.
Spencer is surprised when he’s approached by the gorgeous construction worker he’s admired from the safety of his office window. Acting spontaneously for the first time in his thirty-eight years, Spencer takes Emilio home. When the casual hookup turns into the potential for love, Spencer realizes that if he wants to build a life with Emilio, he’ll need to be strong enough to slay his personal demons and learn to trust again.

Strong Enough by Cardeno C. was a beautiful, sentimental love story that warmed my insides and put a smile on my face. I loved the younger confident man meets shy older professor story line. Emilio spotted Spencer while working at the college and was immediately smitten with the man and knew he could be the one.  Now he had to convince Spencer that age didn’t matter and love was worth the chance.
The dynamics between Emilio and Spencer flew off the pages as their synergy meshed and their personalities complimented each other. Cardeno C. characterized Emilio as just a tad assertive, but the man knew who and what he wanted; this writing worked and accentuated their story.

The strong familial ties was well constructed as Emilio’s family was written as an integral part of his life; nosy pushy siblings who could torture you with a smile on their faces as the drop of a hat, but no one else better mess with you! This attitude also transcended towards Spencer as he was immediately welcomed into the family. I felt an immediate connection with the large Latin family~ as I am also Latina~ where everyone knows your business and isn’t afraid to offer advice or mettle.

Strong Enough held the meaning of life~ who one falls in love with can’t always be helped, a family should always be on your side, and but if there is strength of will and character, love will be found. Cardeno C. wrote strength in Emilio and Spencer and happiness prevailed.
