Fearless (Irresistible Attraction #3) by Cat Grant

I received Fearless by Cat Grant from Riptide Publishing for review through Netgalley in exchange for my honest review.  I had not read anything by Cat Grant before but I do enjoy a good romance- M/M or otherwise.  Here is the cover and Goodreads blurb:

A Sequel to Priceless

How can you plan for the future when escaping the past seems impossible?

After over a year together, Connor Morrison and Wes Martin decide to tie the knot. But an ethics complaint regarding their deeply non-traditional relationship threatens Connor’s job and Wes’s Ph.D. The fact that Connor tried to keep it from Wes—even with the best of intentions—makes the situation even worse and casts a pall over their plans for a Christmas wedding in New York.

It doesn’t help that Connor still treats Wes like glass, though Wes insists he’s recovered from the brutal assault he suffered a year and a half earlier. Wes may be okay, but Connor isn’t. Memories of taking a battered, terrified Wes to the emergency room that night still haunt him, and he can’t let go of the need to protect Wes from any and everything life might throw at him.

But Wes has had enough. Between the specter of the ethics complaint and Connor’s overprotectiveness, he’s already beginning to question their plans. Add in a family ashamed of and angered by his choices, and Wes might just leave Connor standing at the altar.
This book was a lovely read.  It dealt with some serious issues in any relationship but especially in a marriage.  Wes has come to terms with the horrific experience that he lived through before getting seriously involved with Connor.  Connor is still haunted by what he witnessed.  He wants to protect Wes whether he actually needs protecting or not.  Even from Connor himself.  Wes doesn't want to marry someone who sees him as a child who needs a protector.  He wants to marry a man who sees him as an equal.  That's what anyone would want.  Before Wes and Connor can get married, they need to figure this mess out and navigate the pitfalls of dealing with Wes' family.  I enjoyed this book enough that I was super curious about how Wes and Connor met so I bought both of the other two books in the series on Amazon.  The three books are really more of a novella length but I enjoyed them all.  These are definitely ADULT books, too!  I hope you'll give them a read if they sound like your cup of tea.
