Review: 2 Days Later by C.M. Corett
Justin may be young and inexperienced, but he knows what he needs. His New Year’s resolution—to tempt and win Nate over. One lame seduction attempt later, and he’s on his way home in a cab. Alone. But later that night, Justin wakes up battered and bruised on Nate’s doorstep, and Nate insists that Justin stay with him. The big, beautiful man’s protective and caring instincts are definitely kicking in.
Maybe, just maybe, there’s a chance for a happy New Year after all!
I was looking forward to a good New Years book and this hit the spot pretty darn well.
Justin and Nate live in the same apartment complex and Justin has been shamelessly flirting with Nate for some time now. On New Year’s day Nate comes home from work to find Justin battered and beaten on his doorstep. Nate takes care of him, in more ways than one… This was a very simple story and essentially ends up being about the sexual tension and build-up to these two finally getting it on.
That was one thing this story did very well, sexual tension. It was sizzling and the resolution to it at the end was super hot.
This story takes place over two days, so obviously we didn’t get much depth to the characters or their background, but the simple story and characters worked well enough to make the story enjoyable. It had some nice comfort elements and Nate being all protective was lovely!
What really irked me though was there was no conclusion to anything. We have no idea what came of Justin’s abuser, despite that being a very big issue and we also never found out why Nate thought he was ‘unworthy’ of being with Justin. There was just too much left unsaid.
This was simple, but sometimes simple just works and it did here, despite a few flaws.
