ARC Review : Finn’s Fantasy by KC Wells
Finn’s Fantasy by KC Wells
ARC provided by Gay Romance Reviews
available on Amazon / Kindle Unlimited
What a refreshing read of a beautiful love story between two men who are in different stages of their lives but somehow came together and made each other’s better.
I picked this book for an ARC review because I needed a different pace. Plus, it’s set in Maine and I love that state. Finn’s Fantasy is exactly what I needed.
It’s a well-written love story between Finn, who has the propensity to go “too fast too soon” with love and commitment, and Joel, who was recently divorced and is just starting to live his own truth out in the open.
I love the gradual process of Joel and Finn’s story. It wasn’t rushed. It may feel slow for some, but the pace is just right for me. Finn’s side of the story started with his attraction to Joel while he saw the man walking his dog, Bramble. Joel noticed Finn a little bit later, because he was still slowly building his life again but with his own truth this time.
There’s the complex family dynamics but made simple by no unnecessary family drama. Just real-life would-be reactions. It’s refreshing.
Once they got together thought, man, scorching!
I enjoyed meeting the rest of the “Men in Maine”. KC did a brilliant job of introducing them, it didn’t feel like an info dump and each characters are becoming distinct as they’re being introduced. I love that they’re each other’s chosen family.
I can’t wait to read Ben’s story next.
Five White-Light Stars
A secret desire
By day, Finn builds houses on the coastline of Maine. Afterhours, Finn dreams of the hot older guy who walks his chocolate lab on Goose Rocks Beach. The man of his dreams ticks all his boxes. Salt and pepper hair. Strong jawline. Blue eyes. His dream man is perfect fantasy material. As for actually speaking to him? As if. Their paths won’t ever cross, and the guy is probably straight.
A new chapter
Recently divorced Joel is finally living as a gay man, but he’s not sure he’s ready to jump into a relationship. That doesn’t stop him from noticing his new contractor’s muscular build, hewn from hard, physical work, or his storm-colored eyes. Or the way he wears his tool belt slung low on his hips. The icing on the cake? There’s more to Finn than good looks. Maybe he’s the perfect guy to share long walks on the beach and warm nights in front of a fire.
But it’s been twenty years since Joel was with a man. While he’s not forgotten how to flirt, he’s nervous about making a move.
Especially with Finn.
