Praying For Time, Cassandre Dayne

Praying For Time, Cassandre Dayne
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre: LGBTQIA, Erotica
Usually I enjoy M/M romances, there’s lots of tenderness and mostly some great characters and stories but sadly this one didn’t work for me. I really didn’t like Jake at first, and once everything came out I felt sorry for him, sad for all the characters really but just couldn’t get into the way they planned things or the way it played out. Kyle and Russell’s actions too just didn’t feel right to me, I just couldn’t imagine people in the throes of such grief acting in that way. I didn’t feel any build up of tension or tenderness, just people throwing tensions and drama around,m jumping to conclusions and then when more of Jake’s secrets came out I was “ what? When did that happen? Who is Tim??” I felt maybe I’s missed an earlier book, where all this had been covered, but I can’t find anything. The ending too – I know it’s fiction but I need stories that are supposed to feel true to at least be grounded in reality. I can’t see that playing out in real life, agencies are far stricter about things like that, and a very new relationship, just after the death of both partners wouldn’t be ideal.
Still, as ever this is just my view, just one person and this will be a perfect read for others. It’d be a dull world if we all wanted the same from our reading.

Stars: two – sadly one that didn’t work for me. ARC supplied by author/publishers
