Sometimes the best day of your life is the one you never saw coming.
Joe Cohen has devoted the past two years of his life to one thing: the care and feeding of Kade Bosa. His partner in their PI business, roommate, and best friend, Kade is everything to Joe, even if their relationship falls short of what Joe desires most. But he won’t push. Kade has suffered a rough road, and Joe’s pretty sure he’s the only thing holding Kade together.
Estranged from his own family, Joe knows the value of desperately holding on to someone dear, but he never expected his present and past to collide just as Kade’s is doing the same. Now they’ve stumbled across evidence that could change their lives: the impact of Kade’s tragic past, their job partnership, and any future Joe might allow himself to wish for….
Wow, what I didn’t expect with Kairos was how funny it was. Full disclosure though…quite often that is exactly how my family interacts. We talk over each other, make fun of each other, get up in each other’s business, etc. That is exactly how Joe’s family interacted, and it made me laugh over and over.
Joe and Kade clearly had some communication issues, and from the beginning you couldn’t help but feel bad for Joe who had clearly been pining for Kade for years. Yet they managed to work well together, covering each other’s back, no matter what, and ensuring that they were loyal to those who had proven themselves loyal to them.
I had to laugh (again) at the comments throughout, once they arrived at Joe’s family winery, to Joe’s mother about not collecting people…and yet, Joe and Kade collected their own person and brought him to the winery themselves.
There wasn’t a lot of angst in here, other than poor Joe’s unrequited love…well and a few dead bodies, but a lot of great interactions, and a satisfying ending.
I will admit, as often happens with a Mary Calmes book, I want more of these guys. Much more. 🙂
