We first met Kev (and Adam) in E. Davies's book Tremble (The Significant Brothers series). Kev and Adam has moved to the city and it seems that Kev has returned to his old ways. He does what it takes to survive and that means being an escort. Charlie is a workaholic. Ever since his boyfriend died 5 years ago, he has thrown himself into his career and has not shown any interest in dating. An accidental meeting at a bar has Charlie looking for Kev's online dating profile. Charlie and Kev could not be more opposite, but their chemisty is explosive. As a couple, Charlie and Kev have a lot of issues they need to overcome. I can't wait for Adam's story!!!
It might be a spin-off of the Significant Brothers series but Electric Sunshine is a great start for the new series of Brooklyn Boys. Kev and Adam find themselves in NYC after the Significant Brothers series and Kev runs full on into Charlie, I'm never one to give out spoilers and won't this time either, this is a great story of finding trust and discovered love really can do something truly 'nice' to people. I look forward to seeing something more of the series in the next instalment soon. I would encourage anyone wanting to engulf themselves in this to grab the Significant Brothers series, however this is a nice stand alone so you don't really need to.
I really liked this book! I loved the characters and their chemistry and enjoyed the slow progression of their relationship.
I found reading about the international travel aspects of Charlie's job really interesting and something I hadn't considered before. I also found Kev's references to his job becoming more unsafe with new laws being passed just as interesting. Looking forward to reading more from this author!
I enjoyed the characters of Kev and Charlie and can't wait for the next book. Top points from me for managing to include serious points about how it's still unsafe for LGBTQI+ people to travel to certain countries AND about the legitimacy of sex work and how recent laws in the US have made it more unsafe than previously.
