Review: Strength of A Man by Sara Winters
Kurt Dennings learned one life lesson the hard way: love, even between a parent and child, is not always unconditional. After coming out and experiencing a painful rejection from his parents and friends, Kurt feels as if he's lost everything that mattered.
James Theard comes into Kurt's life when he needs someone the most. A friend first and boyfriend second, James becomes his shoulder to lean on, a voice of reason and helps Kurt learn he is stronger and more capable than he imagined.
**I received this book free for review from the author through the DBML (Don't Buy My Love) program in the M/M Romance Group on Goodreads.**
This is a first for me, meaning the first book I have read from Sara Winters. I was not disappointed though. Both of the MC's are on the swim team, Kurt is struggling a bit and James is the team captain. Kurt has only been with a couple other guys and is shy and awkward. James is the go after what I want type of guy. I loved both of these guys the care that James shows Kurt is amazing. He is able to help Kurt with his swimming technique so he can stay on the team and at the same time he is wooing him. They become fast friends and boyfriends but James is always there for Kurt. One thing I was a little leery of was Blake. He is James' friend but I didn't like the way James came off when he was around him. Yes James was sexually frustrated while being patient with Kurt, but he doesn't act that way around Kurt. I guess it just kinda threw me a bit. It distracted me from the image I had of James but I was able to get past it and really really enjoyed seeing these fellows get their happy ending.
