AotM: The Deepest Blue by Christina Lee (Review+Giveaway)

The Deepest Blue by Christina Lee

Roadmap to Your Heart Series, Book 2

Lee exchanges skyline for swampland in the next book of her male/male romance series, Roadmap to Your Heart.

Rugged and conventional Callum Montgomery enjoys running Shady Pines hunting preserve, except for the secret that’s eating him alive. When his sister brings a date for a family wedding, he can’t stand the arrogant city slicker with the stick up his perfectly fine ass. He doesn’t understand his draw to Dean, who pushes his buttons at every turn, but he’d never dream of betraying his sibling over some lust fueled fantasy.

Handsome and conscientious Dean Abbott is a research assistant in his university’s biology lab. When his roommate, Cassie, begs him to be her pretend date in front of her meddling family, he begrudgingly agrees to help. He doesn’t anticipate being enchanted by the countryside, the colorful cast of characters, or her sexy and brooding straight brother.

When contempt turns to passion and leads to stolen moments in a sugar cane field, Callum can’t help longing for the kind of connection he believes he can never have. But not even the world’s most heart-melting kiss can bridge the vast philosophical differences between the men.

Dean’s return to his urban lifestyle leaves him restless, his mind continually wandering to the charming setting that spoke to something missing deep inside him. Because you can take the city boy out of the country but you can’t make him forget the intriguing man he left behind.

When Dean's roommate, Cassie heads back to her home on a Florida preserve for a family wedding, she asks Dean to be her "date" for the week, so she can avoid the neighbor's son being pushed on her. When they get to Cassie's home, Dean is introduced to her family, including her overprotective and broody brother, Callum. They dance around one another for a while, but when they get together, the sparks fly!

I loved Callum and Dean's story. I adored both of these characters. Callum is closeted and slowly pulling away from his family. He knows he needs to help with his younger brother and with the family business, but this means he has to hide a huge part of himself from his family. Dean is out and proud, deciding at a young age he had to be true to himself and not hide the person he is. Both of these characters are different, yet they are a lot alike when it comes to the heart. They are both fiercely loyal to their loved ones.

Callum and Dean just fit together so well. The chemistry and sexual tension was palpable throughout the story. The story was well written and flowed well. It was interesting and entertaining and it kept me turning the pages. The characters were well developed and I LOVED the secondary characters of Cassie, their Grammy, and I especially loved Cassie and Callum's younger brother, Billie, and I'm hoping to see more of all of them in the future. This book had a little of it all. It had excitement, sweetness, laughter, and some smoking hot sex!

Not only is this story amazing, some of the words Christina wrote were pure poetry and absolutely beautiful! I love Christina's writing and can't wait to read more real soon!
