Flawless (Irresistable Attraction #4) by Cat Grant

I have read all of the other books in this series by Cat Grant so I am beyond excited that Riptide Publishing was willing to share the review copy of this one with me through NetGalley.  This is an adult book with adult themes.  Here is the cover and Goodreads blurb:

Steve Campbell used to be a player, until a mid-life crisis opened his eyes to his long-repressed love for Connor, his soon-to-be-married best friend and business partner. Coming out at thirty-eight means learning how to date all over again, and this time, Steve’s not willing to settle for empty one-night stands. He wants the real thing.

Gil Alvarez has never had it easy, struggling through childhood and rejected by his family for a body that didn’t match who he was inside. A skilled driver and mechanic, he’s working hard to make his auto shop a success. The last thing he needs is a rich white guy in a candy-apple-red Ferrari tempting him, but Steve’s ready smile and easygoing manner prove irresistible.

One brief, intimate encounter leaves them both hungry for more. Gil’s not ashamed of who he is, but he’s terrified that Steve will reject him—or worse—when he discovers what Gil can’t find the courage to tell him.
There is an amazing twist in this book that really had me shocked and excited.  I don't want to spoil anything but Cat Grant brings in a subject that is often glossed over in gay culture and romances.  It really made me root for Steve and Gil.  They worked so well together but had so much to overcome.  There is some sexual content in this but nowhere near as much as you'd find in most romances.  I liked that because it put the focus where it belonged: on their feelings for one another and not just on their physical attraction.  Steve wants to find love so badly and it was something that I could really identify with.  What is the point of sleeping with someone just to sleep with someone?  Love is what makes it all worth while.  This is really another great work from Cat Grant.
