Slow Bloom - Anah Crow, Dianne Fox 4.5 Stars

Are there some problems with this book? Yes, certainly. But they did not diminish my enjoyment of the MCs slowly unfolding relationship. Initially I had some reservations about the extremely large age gap. Badly done, it could hit some of my more sensitive buttons. But Jack was wonderful! And under Jack's tutelage, Ricky's character developed from grappling teen to confident and mature young man. Did I mention that Jack was hot? And sexy? And wonderful?
