I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Where the Allegheny Meets the Monongahela - Felicia Watson Might contain light spoilers.What a fantastic read!Two very different men meet in a very unlikely scenario for romance, but fall in love slowly and beautifully against all odds.Nick who is openly gay is a counselor for abuse victims, when he meets Logan, who is a convicted abuser (of his wife). Both have unresolved issues, but Logan was the one who really touched me. It was hard in the beginning to overcome the violence he committed in the beginning, but with the course of his story and his development he became a complex and very likable character - not perfect, far away from that - but striving to make amends. Vulnerable and struggling, but also brave enough to fight his way through his coming out.The way Logan tried to resist the attraction in the beginning, the euphoria he felt when he connected with Nick made for a very engaging romance.I also loved the citations before each chapter - normally I don't appreciate this much, but here the pieces were brilliant and well chosen.Absolutely recommended - I can only repeat, a fantastic read.
