As this was a new to me author, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I found myself not only pleasantly surprised in reading Who Better Than Canyon, but also found myself re-reading the book a couple of times.
What drew me back to the book is the storyline and the characters. I really liked the interplay between Canyon and Simon - how they drew together, shied away from each other, drew each other out, and how other characters drew attention to some of their issues.
While one of the key points for me about the storyline was how Canyon took care of Simon, one point I would have liked to seen explored more came early in the story and, for some reason, made it a little lopsided for me. When Simon and Canyon go to eat at a diner after being at the beach, Canyon mentions an almost unique allergy.
That, in and of itself isn't a big thing, but it is mentioned almost in passing and I would have liked to see it explored a little bit more.
Outside of that, a great read.
Can Canyon and Simon set aside their fears and their pasts to see what lies between them, or will they miss out on their happily ever after?
When Canyon's ex-lover, Robert, dies, he leaves behind a last request that Canyon take word of his passing to Simon, an old friend on the east coast. Canyon reluctantly agrees, and soon finds himself falling for Simon, despite the nagging belief he shouldn't. Canyon is plagued by guilt over his part in the accident that claimed Robert's life. But Simon knows something Canyon doesn't: Robert's death wasn't an accident, but a suicide, and Robert's intent was for the two men he left behind to come together. But Robert's plan didn't account for two things: Simon's disbelief that anyone can truly love a soon-to-be-cripple, and Canyon's staunch decision that the next man he gives himself to will give him a wedding ring first. Can Canyon and Simon set aside their own issues long enough to see what lies between them, or will they both miss out on their happily ever after?
