Finding His Boy by K.D. Ryan

I re-read Finding His Boy because I got an ARC for the second part of the duology, Finding His Home and the second time was better than the first! 

From the Author:

Finding His Boy (Safe Harbor, #1)
Elliot needs a Daddy, even if he doesn't know it yet. Is his old high school teacher the right man for the job? Or will their twenty-year age gap end the relationship before it can even begin?
Finding his way in life all on his own hasn't been easy for eighteen-year-old Elliot Hedrick, but he's managed to hold it all together—even if it's just by the skin of his teeth. Between his warehouse job and pursuing a career as a professional ballet dancer, he’s been working sixteen-hour days and is still barely making ends meet. He's fraying at the seams—and he's so damn lonely.
Thirty-eight-year-old college professor Grant Weston has it all. The perfect job, the perfect house, the perfect life. But when an unexpected encounter in a locker room shower brings Elliot back into his life, Grant can't let the boy keep struggling all alone—even though Grant should know better than to get involved with a younger man. Not when his last relationship with one ended in total disaster. No—there are too many obstacles keeping Grant from taking what he really wants.Because what Grant wants is to make Elliot his boy. Is age really just a number? Whatever happens next is in Daddy's hands. Finding His Boy is the first book in a duet taking place in the Safe Harbor universe but can be read as a stand-alone and has an HFN ending. 

My Review:

I typically am not a re-reader since I devour so many books and love finding new ones, but I felt I had to be clear on where Elliot and Grant left off to make sure I could do the second book justice..

The sweet and steamy pairing of Grant and Elliot, rife with potholes in their road to romance will either make them fall in love or tear them apart - I'd say this is a mid-level for angst and high heat book that takes you on a roller coaster ride from page 3 and doesn't let you go... if it's not on your TBR yet, I'd add it and then check out my review of Finding His Home!

Finding His Boy is a 90+K word slow burn, steamy romance that features a Daddy/boy relationship between two consenting men. No age play. Dual POV. There are explicit descriptions of sexual acts, so this book is intended for a mature audience (18+). TW: on-page physical assault (not between MCs), mention of sexual assault.
