The Punk (Lost Boys Book 3) by Kelly Fox

Living with his unrequited love for Hendrix is almost unbearable, but caring for Hendrix when he needs him is something Sawyer doesn't think twice about. Now he has to brace himself and hide his feelings from the man that swore never to be loved or fall in love.

From The Punk blurb:

Punk Rock Superstar Collapses In Front Of Record Crowd
Hendrix Cavanaugh Rushed To Hospital In Mexico City
Cavanaugh Leaves Hospital AMA

I've loved Hendrix Cavanaugh since his high school mascot days, and seeing him grind himself down like this has been driving me up a wall. Now that he's collapsed on stage, I can't watch from the sidelines for a second longer.

I know I'm not his type—I'm a network security specialist who wears expensive suits and alphabetizes his spice drawer. In contrast, Hendrix wears all black, including his eyeliner and nail polish, and I doubt he's so much as alphabetized his contacts list.

Swooping in to save the day won't make him notice me. I know that. But he has to come off the road, and I have to be the one to take care of him, or I'm going to go out of my mind.

That said, sharing a cabin with him while he recovers might be the dumbest thing I've ever done in my entire life.

SNik's review:

Third in series (The Lost Boys), best if read in order. Childhood friends to lovers. Found family. Opposites attract. Close proximity. Light BDSM. Slow burn. Dual POV. 

Sawyer has loved Hendrix since high school, and when Hen needs to recover from a brutal touring schedule, Sawyer doesn’t hesitate to step in and take care of him. Even if Hen fights against all the nagging and caring, his healing is all due to Sawyer, and he begins to see more than just his bossy, stoic friend. 

I really enjoyed the push and pull between Sawyer’s domineering concern and Hen’s bratty acceptance of Sawyer’s help. Once the steam starts it’s super spicy as to be expected from Kelly Fox, and eventually Hen opens himself up to the possibilities with Sawyer in his future as more than a friend. The story happens over a good amount of months, so there is a natural feel to the closeness that grows and how that friendship can change into a special forever. Still a big fan of this found family of men and this series.

Heather's Review:

I've been waiting for Hendrix's story and I have to say that Kelly Fox didn't disappoint with this one!  An unrequited best friends to lovers story with a huge slow burn, a character who has basically worn himself so thin he's going to need months of rehab and of course the amazing Lost Boys friend group to help these two figure things out!

I love the way Hen brats out as he heals, and just how much patience Sawyer has for dealing with it, even if you see his dom side come out more and more often.  I also love the ways Sawyer has set up his world to protect himself from his feelings... 

I can't wait to see what's next for the Lost Boys, and watch as Hendrix integrates back into their small town.
