Family Unit by Z.A. Maxfield
A retired marine, Logan is methodical and conservative. Richard is a liberal pacifist who is pathologically afraid of guns. Yet the minute Logan sets eyes on Richard, his heart turns over like an old car engine and it isn't long before his motor is revved and Richard is in the driver's seat—even if it seems like each man is driving a different car.
Richard Hunter is parenting his grandson, and the kid—Nick—has had it rough. Richard vows nothing will stop him from creating a loving and stable home. Not even a tempting, red-hot relationship with a very attractive man. However, when Richard looks into Logan’s blue eyes it’s tough to stay focused.
It’s never easy to become a family, what with a temperamental eight-year-old, disapproving outsiders, and outright extortion attempts. But when push comes to shove, both Logan and Richard are committed family men who want to make a loving home for a little boy who needs them.
I really thought this book was just adorable, Richard was such a sweet character and I really enjoyed that Nick the grandson was not just a prop but we actually got some insight into his character as well. Logan was my favorite however the retired Marine who everyone calls the crazy soldier guy which happened to be hilarious and the tampon this had me ROFL. Anyway the only problem I had with this story was I wanted to know what happened to Nicks mom after the camping, I wouldn't mind getting another story about this couple I really enjoyed this story it made me laugh, cry and the sex scenes were awesome. I also really liked how it showed some homophobia but not enough to take away from the love story, which I sincerely enjoyed, the differences between Rick & Logan were real issues and I loved how they worked on those issues. I loved this story so I recommend.
