The Half of Us by Cardeno C


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.

First off, I will start that this book is not going to be for everyone- so be prepared that I said that up front.  It is a M/M book and part of the Family Series.  I have read all of them and this one was the one that I liked the least out of all of them.  I am not saying that I hated it, because that is not true, but it was not my favorite.

Jason and Abe are characters that people will love.  Abe might be a little too perfect, but that is about the only flaw that I can find with him in this book.  Jason is a hard headed Alpha male who knows what he wants...or does he?   He was not expecting to find quiet school teacher Abe when he walked into the bar that night.  He was looking for a good hop in the sheets and that is all.  Little did he know that Abe would be on his mind all the time.  Abe never had a one night stand before, but took a chance on Jason as a birthday present to himself.

What I did like is that we were able to see Jason's vulnerable side, and the emotions that Abe brought out of him.  He is a loser of a dad, but strives to be a better one by the end of the book.  Abe is pretty much the housewife of the book and takes care of Jason along the way.  I wish that there were something about him that I just didn't want to like.

Like I said this is the 4th book in the family series.  Jason is related to one of the characters in the 1st book in the series.  That being said, you really don't have to read the books in order, or at all, to get the story that is going on.

Cardeno C. - CC to friends - is a hopeless romantic who wants to add a lot of happiness and a few "awwws" into a reader's day. Writing is a nice break from real life as a corporate type and volunteer work with gay rights organizations. Cardeno's stories range from sweet to intense, contemporary to paranormal, long to short, but they always include strong relationships and walks into the happily-ever-after sunset.

Heartwarming Stories. Strong Relationships. Forever Love.
