Blurb: When Kris Cerny walks back into Two Spirits, the art gallery he owns with Josh McPhee, all he wants is a clean break. Austin's booming real estate market means the building he bought years ago is worth a fortune, and with the sale, he and Josh can finally go their separate ways. They won't be reconciling, right? Josh may be sober now, but an addict is always going to be an addict, and Kris can't take that chance again.
Josh isn't willing to sell. Not yet. He's discovered a new artist in Santa Fe he knows will put Two Spirits in the black, and if he can just make a success of the gallery, maybe he can earn Kris's respect, if not recapture his love. He need Kris to give him time for one more buying trip, one more gallery show. Josh wants nothing more than a final chance to make things right. Kris agrees to let Josh have this last ditch effort on one condition-- he wants to go along for the ride. On the way Josh hopes they'll find the next big thing in the art world as well as peace, forgiveness, and a love he thought was lost forever.
Review: Friends, lovers, alcoholics & business partners, all these things are what Kris and Josh used to be. Now neither really know what they are to each other, but what they do know is that they do love each other. Can love be everything for these two? Josh hopes so, but Kris is holding onto past traumas regarding his family and Josh. Unable to trust Josh again, Kris makes mistakes that cost both of them their happiness.
I wanted to love this book but I didn't, I can't put my finger on exactly what I didn't like but I do know the book was choppy. I had to re-read a few things to try to get them to make sense. I do hope that the author makes this a series and gives us a book or two with Cypress & Zack finding love.
