interference of Elliot s father is beautiful but heartbreaking at the same time To rate this one is difficult I love Serena Yates books and her books always make me smile Finding Elliot is not different The problem I have is with the pace of the romance It is somewhat unbelievable to me that after all these years of separation the couple comes together and acknowledges their love within 48 hours Especially the fact that Elliot wasn t able to go against his father all these years and now he can do just like that Nevertheless I can t wait to readof the series and the young gay men of Riverside Serena introduced in this book 3.5 starsI am contemplating between 3.5 and 4 stars for this On the plus side, this is probably my favorite story of Serena Yates yet duly noted, I have only read 4 books so far, including this one because 1 It deals with the one who gets away theme which always guarantee aintense emotion and 2 There an actual build up towards the love making I love those two factors Because of their history David and Elliot s love making becomesemotional manifestation than just mutua 3.5 starsI am contemplating between 3.5 and 4 stars for this On the plus side, this

emotion and 2 There an actual build up towards the love making I love those two factors Because of their history David and Elliot s love making becomesemotional manifestation than just mutual physical attraction.BUT, I m contemplating of reducing the stars because of one simple reason, I think David is an idiot I know, I know, he says that he misses Elliot and he cannot forget him, but he is too condescending to see what Elliot has been going through He easily judges that Elliot is a coward and doesn t understand why Elliot seems unable to stand up on his own against his tyrant father Well, David, THERE ARE people like that, you know You can t just judge everyone else SIMPLY because they don t follow your standard of an independent man Jeez There are several times I want to smack David in the head for what he does maybe because my heart goes for Elliot so bad, reading how he struggles to stay strong under his father s rigid rules When Elliot finally spines up and tells his parents, enough is enough, I feel so happy for him There, I know it s subjective, but it s hard for me to give 4 stars if I don t find both guys likeable I can t wait to read Peter s story and find out what actually happen to Adrian @FREE EPUB é Finding Elliot Î Book one in the Men of Riverside Series After five years of forced separation David was determined to find Elliot again but what he gets isn t

while they can be read on their own, are best read in sequence 3.5% from meHard to rate as I have mixed reactions to the book.On one hand it was sweet and a fairly simple plot I really liked David and the other secondary characters at Riverside I even want to read the second book in the series to see how his friend works out his past tragedy.But on the other hand I couldn t bring myself to like

sequel Sometime the first in a series is a bit bland I loved this story I always cry a little when reading one of Serena s stories, and not in a bad way Her characters always have their obstacles to overcome, someheart breaking than others But witnessing the characters coming together in a story that is well written, makes for a compelling read that will be re read many times over I cannot wait for the next story in the series.

residents of Riverside have already been partially introduced I do have to say that this is the third book of Serena s that I wanted to run one of the main character s parents over with my truck though hmm, either there s a pattern here or I may have some issues to deal with It was so mind numbingly cliche ridden it was almost painful to get through this one YMMV I always enjoy reading m m

for couple days, they talk I cannot stand stories where adult men break up completely or being separated for a long period without communication at all like forthan a year due to a simple misunderstanding The typical would be one of the protagonists leaves the city state without waiting for any explanation from the other one If one of them needs time to be alone, that s fine, though I can also accept it if the characters are still young, such as those in high school but not if they are both adult men Thanks God this book is not one of those.Will read the other books in the series

only when you ve finished all other commitments and settled down for an early night of guilt free reading pleasurebecause you won t want to put it down While the characters, David and Elliot, where very different in almost every respect, I truly wanted there HEA as this story progressed David a strong, determined man that has had to make his own way in the world was very easy to like as he struggles to find closure and move ahead with his life However, it s Elliot s character that really won my heart Elliot, who appears to have it all, and yet lives and empty shell of a life tugs at the heartstrings It would have been so easy for Ms Yates to write a rescue story, with David riding in on his white charger to save poor Elliot from his pitiful existence Instead, the reader is taken on a journey that sees Elliot discover his own strength and determination to live his HEA with the man he loves It made for an excellent and heart warming journey I can definitely recommend Finding Elliot is a wonderful start to a new series with very nicely choreographed teases to future characters that definitely leaves me wantingI look forward to reading about the Men of Riverside in the future
