Description: Restaurant owner Tom Fearnes has loved his partner Cass for as long as he can remember, but their work often keeps them apart. When he meets a striking young man named Jake on the vibrant streets of Camden Town, their heady first encounter takes an unexpected turn.
Jake Thompson can hardly believe his luck when he wakes up in Tom’s bed. Tom is gorgeous, kind, and . . . taken. Tom’s explanation of his open relationship leaves Jake cold, but Tom is too tempting, and when hard times force Jake to accept Tom’s helping hand, he finds himself between two men who’ve lost their way.
Cass Pearson is a troubled soul. He loves Tom with all he has, but some days it feels like he hasn’t much to give. Jake seems like the perfect solution. Cass risks everything to push Jake and Tom together, but Jake resists, wary, until the darkness of Cass’s past comes to call. Then Jake finds himself the last man standing, and it’s time to dig deep and shine a light for the men he’s grown to love.
Review: I had really high expectations and guess what? They were surpassed!
This novel is settled in the restaurant industry and I love how important this setting is. There are so many details about food and restaurants…
Jake has Tourette’s syndrome, which is not forgotten through the story and there is no magical love cure! It is and stays a part of him.
Speaking of characters… all three are very interesting characters and I love how intriguing the relationships between them are. Misfits truly is not your typical romance. Usually I don’t quote in my reviews, but I have to do so now:
Fuck’s sake, Tom. I don’t want to be the most important thing in your life; I just want you to love me, and I know you do. ~ kindle pos. 1153
No unhealthy, dependant love in this love story! Isn’t this refreshing?
