FIVE STAR Review for Dangerously Happy from Louis Stevens

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful story that draws you in from the first chapterMay 22, 2014
This review is from: Dangerously Happy (Kindle Edition)
Solid 5 stars!

Lord help me this was a beautiful story. Varian's narrative voice draws you in from the get-go.

Dario is by far one of the most intriguing characters in Dangerously Happy and I enjoyed that Varian made you work for it to get to know him, shedding him layer by layer until you feel like you are inside his mind, even though the point of view character is the delectably and adorably inexperienced Aidan.

There were definite tender moments that forced you to look into the depths of human nature and there were sexy moments a plenty.

His shyest, happiest smile. "Aidan, love. I want you to live with me. I want us to share our lives with each other."
"Me too."
Another night of endless lovemaking.

I also enjoyed the dynamics between the two MCs, where you're never 100% sure which character assumes which role in the relationship (strict btm / top) which is always a refreshing challenge to me who personally like to place characters squarely into boxed labels (far too much).

The mystery element of the story adds to the build up of tension that Varian crafts throughout the story and I enjoyed some of the cringeworthy awkward moments during the MC's coming out scenes. It makes me wonder just how the author is able to relate to the struggles that every guy faced with coming out has to eventually face, since she does it with a great sense of realism.

To top it all off, the ending leaves you satisfied, even though you're not ready to say goodbye to Varian's leading men yet.
