Love can sneak up on you in the last place you’d expect.
Kellen Grady has known he’s gay since he was a teenager, but he’s never been that interested in dating. A professional pianist, he’s happy spending his days teaching students of all ages and his nights working and playing at an Atlanta bar and concert venue. When former pro football player Terrence Harvey and his brother buy the bar, Kellen’s thrown by the change to his routine, but he develops a quick friendship with Terrence, drawn to his sunny nature and sharp mind. Then their relationship takes a turn when Terrence surprises Kellen with a kiss. The unexpected action, though not unwelcome, leaves Kellen faced with reevaluating everything he thought he knew—about Terrence, and about himself.
Review by Tracy C Muth
Kellan is a music teacher at a local college. He also works as a musician at a bar. When the bar he plays at is sold to the Harvey brothers, Kellan meets the new owners and hits it off right away with Terrance, a retired NFL pro football player. They form an easy friendship, but what happens when the feelings begin to deepen into something stronger than friendship?
I really enjoyed this book. It was a sweet and easy read. The main characters were both extremely lovable and they fit together like a glove. The chemistry and connection they shared was undeniable and jumped off the pages at you. I loved how easy their friendship was and their progression to lovers seemed natural and realistic.
My only complaints were that while the story is well-written, the pace was choppy at times. It jumped from one scene to another sometimes without feeling like the previous scene was fully complete. And I think the book needed just a couple of more chapters to wrap it up. Still, this was a very delightful story, filled with friendship, sweetness, family and love. Highly recommended!!

Meet Shae Connor
Shae Connor lives in Atlanta, where she works for the government by day and reads and writes about people falling in love by night. She’s been making up stories for as long as she can remember, but it took her a long time to figure out that maybe she should start writing them down. Now, she usually has far too many stories in progress, but when she does manage to tear herself away from her laptop, she enjoys running, hiking, cooking, and traveling, not necessarily in that order.
