WHAT WE DESERVE is a sweet story about three guys who were lucky to find each other and who didn't let past conflicts get between them.
Sean had been in love with his best friend Jamie for years only he never thought his desires would be reciprocated. He was close to ecstatic once Jamie took him into his arms and made his first time as special as it could be. After all, Sean's wildest dreams came true and nothing could have spoiled it. Until morning came and Sean was told Jamie had left him without a word and joined the army.
They say first love is the hardest one to let go, and no one knows that better than Sean. Even when love is all but crashing through the door, he is reluctant to commit himself completely to Tyler, the man he cares deeply for. Then Jamie is back, after twelve years in the army and he's not willing to disregard his wishes again and deny his heart. He wants Sean close even if just as a friend.
Up to that point I really liked this book. All three guys were developed nicely, their relationships explained and explored and I really saw a lot of potential in this story. But once Jamie started insinuating himself into the lives of the people he'd left behind – and he'd left more than just Sean – the plot started to rush. Gone were all the explanations and gentle easiness of their contact and instead we got three men who knew themselves more than people double their age. They accepted their feelings without a glitch and they plunged into a life that was sure to be full of trials and difficulty.
For me, the rest of the story was just too sweet and their conflicts mostly unbelievable. Sex scenes were excessive and somewhat failed to show me the connection the three men obviously shared.
Despite that, I would be curious to see what this author could do with a bit more page space and time.
