Maybe This Time (Belonging #2) by A. M. Arthur

I love Carina Press and I was really happy with the previous book in this series so I jumped at the chance to read Maybe This Time by A. M. Arthur. Check out the cover and the Goodreads blurb:
As a regular at gay hotspot Pot O Gold, Ezra Kelley avoids his tangled emotions with the simplicity of one-night stands and attachment-free hookups. Until the night bartender Donner Davis picks him up off the floor after a misunderstanding and too much tequila. Ezra can't remember the last time someone was…nice. It's more than he deserves.

Witnessing his lover's death two years ago has Donner trapped in a holding pattern- living in his sister's basement, working at the Pot and flirting with the customers. He's not above spending a night with the gorgeous Ezra, but love is not in the cards. That's more than he's ready for.

A passionate night leads to a connection neither man expects, and they take the first steps to something that looks like a real relationship. But Ezra's been running from himself so long he doesn't know how to live any other way. And Donner can't risk his heart just to lose everything again. They'll both need the strength to let go of the past if they want to get it right this time.

Donner is a sweet and lovely character. I loved seeing him find his place with Ezra. He has such a big heart. He is healing from a loss that left him floundering and as he's finally coming back to himself, he meets Ezra and helps him find his place too. I love the idea of Street Feed, there is just so much that can be done to help others and we need to step up like Donner and make it happen. I was really inspired by Donner's dedication to making the world a better place. Ezra has had a hard road to travel thus far, his parents are just terrible and he has been on his own for so long. I really enjoyed that Ezra and Donner found themselves in each other and that together they could do something so much bigger than they could have done separately. A. M. Arthur writes beautiful love stories! Highly recommend!
