Except You by Cora Rose (Our Exception book 1)

Remorse leads to redemption and a search for meaning leads to love in Except You... 

From the blurb:

A straight man walks into a gay bar searching for meaning…

It sounds like the start of a lousy joke.

And honestly, that’s what my life is beginning to feel like.

I look back at all the hateful things I’ve said and done—so many things I can’t take back—and I’m not proud. I let my ignorance steal my relationship with my youngest brother, Magnus. He and his husband, Sem, are now happily married with kids, and all I want is to be a part of their lives.

But I need help to get there.

Help in the form of a sweet man so open-hearted and optimistic that he’s willing to take on and teach a lost cause like me.

Because I don’t know if people are truly capable of change. But the way Beau looks at me with his pretty eyes and cheeky smile, the way he openly shows me friendship, love, and affection…he sure makes me wonder, if a person can change, can they also earn forgiveness?

Heather's Review:

When you go seeking redemption and find love instead... For those of us who loved Maggie and Sem's story, it was interesting to see the lengths that Max will go in understanding his brother and trying to bridge the divide he created with his homophobia...

This book builds slowly as the tension between Max and Beau ratchets up and they go from strangers to friends to fake boyfriends to ... in the space of just a few weeks.  I adore the journey that Max goes on, the steps he takes to reconnect with Maggie and how that brings him closer to his own truth and of course, Beau....

The side characters were fun and I can't wait to see what happens with Matt's redemption story!
