M/M Romance, Marriage of Convenience. Single Parent.
Isaiah is a widowed, gay NFL Player with an artistic non-binary son. He’s pretty much a Papa Bear, protecting his son, still dealing with his grief when he crosses paths with Gender Fluid Chechen Ballet Dancer Victor Aleksandrov. Victor is in a precarious position after speaking out against the atrocities committed against gays in Chechnya. Victor and Isaiah have a hot hot hot one night stand, but don’t anticipate seeing each other again afterwards in spite of the fact they share an agent.
After being refused asylum in the US Isaiah offers to marry Victor to prevent him having to return home (yay thanks downfall of DOMA). Of course they begin to have feelings for each other but keep those under-wraps for the sake of Isaiah’s Son and because after 2-3 years & Victor’s naturalization, they intend to head their separate ways. Personally I loved the push-pull between these two very different characters. You had an out and proud man who risked his life to fight for the protection of others, you also have a much more subdued gay man who’s trying to just get through life after a devastating loss, he hasn’t needed to fight as much and bears a heavy responsibility trying to do the best by his unusual son. This story isn’t neat and tidy with everyone making the right decisions all the time, you have two adults messing up, trying to do their best, trying to get by.
I thought it was great and look forward to reading more in this series and by this author.
