Review: A Fool for You (Icon Men #3) by Cat Grant

"Book three in the Icon Men series.

Sexy Chase Aubrey plays blues guitar like nobody's business. One look at him performing at a New York nightclub, and twenty-year-old keyboard player Brian Barclay's smitten.

However, Brian remains true to his boyfriend Kit-until Kit cheats on him and steals all the songs they've written together. With nowhere else to go, Brian turns to his estranged father, Trevor, and Trevor's partner, Cameron. But even Cameron can't smooth over the tension between father and son.

Brian's in need of a friend, and Chase fills the role nicely-and quickly heats up the sheets with him as well. The passion between them is mind-blowing, until Brian discovers Chase's secret past. A past he's run from for years. And when the past threatens the present, Brian can't help wondering if the love of his life has played him for a fool."

This was my first m/m ever and let me tell you I was not disappointed. Grant not only brought me into a whole new world but she did an amazing job in telling this fantastic story. 

Brian is in a band with his boyfriend and a few other guys. They came all the way from Canada to New York just to make it on the music scene. Things seem to happen and Brian finally figures out that his boyfriend is well just no good. Brian once and for all finds out that his boyfriend for 5 years has betrayed him by not only cheating but stealing his music. Now Brian has to turn to the one man who had abandoned him 5 years ago for help. Can he get his life finally back on track and trust another? 

Chase is musician that is interested in Brian, but Brian really has no idea. Everyone has a past but Chase for sure wants to forget all about his. He decides to help Brian by collecting his belongings from his old apartment and sparks start flying from there. The relationship starts to grow, but when Chases past starts to surface Brian wonders if he can stand the heat and trust Chase with his heart.

I totally loved Brian and Chase from the beginning. The way they became friends and turned into something else was completely warming. Although they both are having some issues they help each other and try to make it through the storm so to speak. Grant did an outstanding job in telling this love story. It was like a movie I could actually see playing out. 

Not only does this story have some emotional parts but it includes a romance that just made my heart pound. The sex scenes were hot and passionate. You can tell how much they felt for each other. Brian and Chase are a couple you want to be together. They have both suffered some hard times in the past but by them coming together they get the chance to heal those old wounds.With love and forgiveness anything is possible for them  to make it.

A Fool for You is the third book in this series but after reading this story I for sure what to go back and read the first two books. This is a story that will capture you and drag you in. I wanted so much more. A truly wonderful read. Happy Reading!
