Waiting for Ty (Friends and Lovers #2) by Samantha Ann King

I recently had the good fortune to receive a copy of Waiting for Ty from Carina Press through NetGalley.  Here is the cover and Goodreads blurb:

Tyler Coil doesn't do men. But it’s harder to remember that each time he visits his best friend, gorgeous Landon Burke. As a political reporter, Ty is good at reading people, and he can tell the lust is mutual. But giving in to it could mean alienating his ultra-conservative family.

Landon never desired a man badly enough to explore that side of his sexuality—until he met Ty. He’s waited four long years for a sign that Ty wants him too, and he can’t deny his needs much longer. So when a career opportunity arises out-of-state, Landon wonders if maybe it’s time to move on.

Then Ty crashes at Landon’s while working on a story—and a searing kiss ignites a night of mind-blowing sex that’s better than their most erotic fantasies. Forced to face his feelings, Ty must decide if love is worth the risk after all—before he loses Landon forever.
I really liked the way that the author brought these two friends together.  The friends to lovers trope does not feel over used or forced here.  The feelings between Landon and Ty feel real and visceral.  This short read is very realistic and emotional.  It isn't all sex scenes, hearts and rainbows.  The couple faces their own demons to even be together and once they decide to make a go of it, they have to face the challenges that the world at large poses.  They have to deal with sharing their love with family and friends.  They have to find a way to make their relationship work on a professional level.  I loved how sweet and genuine Landon is and how brave Ty is when he stands up to his parents.  What a great short read.  This one is quality!

You can click here to find this book on Goodreads and on Amazon. Samantha Ann King can be found on her website, Facebook and Twitter.  I give Waiting for Ty 3 Fairies for an enjoyable romantic read.
