I read this in about a day and really enjoyed it. It's a slower-paced romance in some ways. The two MCs meet in the first scene, move in together immediately, and start having sex the first night. So the progression of the story is really more character driven, dealing with how the closeted fireman, Tomas, comes to accept himself as gay and how his family, a conservative clan from El Salvador who lives right next door, deals with it. I enjoy romances that involve family drama so I didn't mind the more gentle pace of this. The relationship between Jesse and Tomas was perhaps a little 'insta-love' on Tomas's part, but I'm an incurable romantic so yeah, I'll buy it.
Looking forward to more in this series.
