Lazy Days Lazy Days, Book 1 K-Lee Klein LGBT, Gay Romance Independently Published by K-Lee Klein September 27, 2018 363
Scott Weston’s car is sensible, his suits are bland, and his job is stable but boring. Mundane routine helps keep his anxiety and obsessive tendencies under control. Socializing—especially dating—isn’t on his list of strong skills either, and, made worse with the echoes of his disapproving mother. So he’s content to stay at home with his lists and cleaning and wildlife documentaries, until a one-night stand goes unexpectedly right. History has taught Devon DuCaine that dating can be uncomfortable, but there’s just something about Scott. He may be the opposite of Devon’s own long-haired, tattooed, free-wheeling spirit but he brings out the nurturer in Devon. Maybe it’s Scott’s surprising fascination with Devon’s motorcycle, or his shy surprise in moments of affection, but there’s more under those sensible suits than meets the eye. The most important person in Devon’s life, his mom, taught him love and compassion and that’s all he wants to share that with Scott. Their one-night stand turns into a regular thing, but Scott doesn’t trust it to last. He’s pretty sure Devon is hiding something. He’s even more sure that once Devon gets to know him, the attraction will fade. And then there’s his mother. However many sparks fly between them, Devon will have his work cut out to convince Scott they can have their happily ever after. (This book was first published as 2 short stories, but this new version has double the content from the originals.)
On the surface, Scott Weston and Devon DuCaine could not be more different. Scott is all about his routines. From his buttoned up appearance to his job as an accountant, from his chore lists to his super organized apartment, Scott needs the control to combat panic attacks and to deal with his less than supportive mother. Devon DuCaine, on the other hand, has long, unruly hair, tattoos, and rides a motorcycle. Scott’s careful life collides with Devon’s messy one in a one night stand that becomes so much more. What Scott and Devon fail to realize, is that they share the same insecurity: neither man believes that they can be loved for who they are.
Klein combines two previously published shorter stories plus a lot of bonus material to turn Lazy Sundays into an even better full length book. This is such a sweet love story. The depth of insight into these two men as they learn how to be in a healthy relationship is so touching. Their path is not easy, and Klein does not let their love be the cure for all of their issues, rather she shows how to love someone with those issues, how to love unconditionally. This is a great book for Lazy Sunday reading!
