Ricky by Ashley John

Rty suddenly comes to an endChase Brody doesn’t know where life is taking him Between running his gym and raising his son Dylan the only time he puts himself first is his once a week trip to the gay bars His family has convinced him he needs to find a mother for Dylan so he keeps his sexual desires secret He always believed women were for love and men were for sex but he is forced to reevaluate everything he thought he knew when he stumbles across a helpless man in need of his helpAfter Chase takes Ricky to the ho. I hate to do this because I have enjoyed this author s work in previous reads but I felt absolutely nothing here Ricky is a party boy and has sworn off love because his fianc died 10 years ago So now his life is an endless party filled with hookups Chase owns a gym with his brother and is a single father he has a homophobic father who is a police chief he seems to be surrounded by people who are dumbasses the only good in his life besides his son seems to be his elderly neighborthat helps with his son sometimes Chase keeps his desire for men a secret Ricky is attacked one night leaving the club in which he is a drag DJ and is left for dead when Chase on his way to a hookup finds him and helps There is good here The concept is good and the story ultimately is about a second chance and self acceptance however we took a long time to get there and there were a lot of issues sprinkled in that annoyed me to no end 1 I never could like Ricky He has his moments where his true persona comes through all the bullshit he puts up but in all honesty he is super annoying and uses the word sweetheart constantly2 Chase could never seem to accept himself fully it s like he was scared to say he is gay or bisexual I m not saying labels are important but come on you are banging a guy you are a little than just straight ish3 Ricky is not that nice to his best friend someone who obviously cares about him deeply4 Ricky seems adamant to not let anyone in ever again to an alarming degree I mean he goes to great lengths to destroy his relationship5 No burn I didn t feel the burn There are sexy times but no pining for each other I wanted of a connectionThere is a good HEA and even though Chase s son is the most important part of his life the child doesn t over saturate the story like sometimes children in books seem to do It s not all bad might be a better read for someone else I think my inability to warm up to Ricky kind of threw me off right from the get go

Review originally posted at Sinfully35 starsAlthough this book is a standalone if you ve read TimingTiming you ll remember Ricky as Tom s friend and also remember his alter ego Miss Kitty Litter the drag DJ I really liked Ricky in that book and was glad to see of him here though it may be harder for you to warm up the brashness that is Ricky if you haven t already seen his sweet caring sideRicky euates love with heartbreak He has spent last 10 years having meaningless sex following rules that keep feelings out of the picture He s basically a one and done kind of guy He says he s happy the way he is but his friends Tom and Cole aren t convinced Soon even Miss Kitty Litter isn t enough to keep Ricky from crackingTattoo covered muscular gym owner Chase lives for his six year old son He works and goes home except for the occasional nights where he finds a hook up at one of the gay bars He tolerates the father that walked out on him and his family when he was a kid for the sake of his son His brother seems to be a lot like his father and his bitchy sister in law harps on him non stop about his parenting skills and finding Dylan a mother The only one who seemed tolerable in the family was Barbara the woman his father left the family for but she really didn t have a lot of page time He allows his awful family to shape the way he thinks and is convinced he needs to find a mother for his son so he hides his attraction to menWhen Chase is on his way back to a hook up s apartment one night he finds Ricky badly beaten in an alley and calls for help staying with Ricky in the hospital until he wakes up When Ricky takes him up on his offer of some self defense classes they strike up an unlikely friendship that soon turns physical Chase s brother makes it clear that he doesn t know why Chase is wasting his time hanging around Ricky and Chase s bigoted father turns out to be the officer who is investigating Ricky s case Chase tries to keep the nature of his relationship with Ricky secret from his family and Ricky tries to keep Chase at arm s lengthThese two have plenty of secrets that slowly come out and some hurt than others The real crux of the problem however is can Ricky let go of the past and risk his heart again on Chase and does he even want to For Chase the problem is bigger Even as he starts to admit that he s not completely straight and starts to accept himself he still allows the family that thinks so little of him to have a lot of sway over his life choices and they ve convinced him he needs a mother for his son He is afraid to come out to this horrible family for some reason and goes to great lengths to hide Ricky from his family and his family from RickyI was a bit hot and cold on Chase I understood he was trying to figure out his sexuality and trying to do what was best for his son but one moment he s being a doormat and the next saying he didn t care what anyone thinks it was pretty frustrating at times Ricky was pretty consistent throughout although he does take some drastic steps when all the feelings between him and Chase got too strong I would have liked to see Ricky interact with Chase s son Dylan as the little time we did see them together was pretty awkward and adorableThe two had great chemistry and I did enjoy much of their time together They are both trying so hard to fight the best thing to have happened to either of them in a long time though and it did at times become a bit repetitive I think a bit of editing would have definitely helped the flow of the bookThere was a lovely bit of support in Chase s elderly neighbor Annie and of course Cole and Tom are back and have plenty of interaction with the guys too The book definitely had its highs and lows for me but I think if you liked Ricky in Timing you re going to want to read this There was a lot of back and forth but not a lot of angst If hurt comfort is your thing and you don t mind occasionally wanting to knock some sense into your MCs as they really fight against getting to their HEA Ricky will probably work well for you
