Will and Blake couldn’t be happier. They have a beautiful little boy, Nathan, and Sophie finally has the little brother she’s been demanding. But all is not bliss in the Davis household. Coping with reality is going to change all their lives.
Rick and Angelo are sick and tired of trying to get a wedding organized. If it was up to them, they’d be married already, but Angelo’s mother has plans and they keep getting bigger. Angelo can see problems on the horizon: big, traditional Italian wedding and gay do not go well together. Something’s got to give.
Colin receives an unexpected call from an ex, with bad news. He feels compelled to help, regardless of the consequences. Ed loves Colin’s big heart and supports him in his efforts, but when the truth comes out, he finds it difficult to keep a lid on his emotions.
As the coming months unfold, the friends are going to need each other more than ever.
I didn’t want this story to end. I just didn’t want to say goodbye to Will & Blake, Rick & Angelo, and Colin & Ed. I so enjoyed their company, the interactions between them, and the fabulous cast of friends and family they brought along for the ride. Some stories should just go on indefinitely, and Personal Challenges is one of those.
Without saying too much about exactly what happens in this story I have to admit that it packed a punch. I found myself blinking tears, both of the happy and sad variety, away on more than one occasion. I laughed out loud, cursed, muttered, and smiled. In short, I lived rather than read this book.
The challenges in this story were realistic and the way the characters dealt with their problems was both balanced and true to life. While there are plenty of heart-wrenching moments in this book, I wouldn’t call it angsty. If I had to give it a label I’d say touching and thought-provoking. And I just loved how every single character in this story was allowed to have his own moments of both weakness and strength and how the others were always there to lend an ear, or shoulder, or various other body parts as the case may be, to help the other through a rough spot (and some spots are seriously rough, trust me).
If there is such a thing as a perfect balance between touching, angsty, funny, and sexy, K.C. Wells found it in this book as far as I’m concerned. I loved that this isn’t really a romance. The relationships were established in earlier books and are still going strong. This is the sort of book I often find myself wishing for when I finish a story that really touched me. This is a what-happened-next story, portraying thriving loving relationships years after the early novelty has worn off. Few things are as satisfying as spending more time with much loved characters and to discover that they are still as in love with each other as they were when we last saw them.
While this is apparently the final title in the Personal series I’ve got a sneaky suspicion we may be seeing some if not all of these characters again in a different story. Two characters are introduced in this book, who are just crying out for their own happily ever after and I can’t wait for the moment when they’ll get it.
I have no doubt that anybody who has read the previous Personal stories will be over the moon to have this opportunity to connect with these wonderful men again. But I can also safely say that if you haven’t read the prequels, you’ll adore this story. In fact the only risk you’d be taking is that you might end up with 3 more full length and two novella-sized Personal titles to add to your TBR-list. And as luck (in this case known as K.C. Wells) would have it, the box-set of all previous titles is currently discounted. The relevant information and links for this special offer can be found at the top of this post. But, you’ll need to hurry up to avail of this wonderful offer, the price will go back up on April 10th.
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….
K.C. loves to hear from readers.
