Chelsea’s hottie Blake Morgan III has reemerged from a nasty breakup. His marriage was a frigid disaster beyond repair, and he vows to be single—forever. Bruised, but still hot in Prada, he creates his Seven Desires wish list, his sexiest imaginings. Blake soon realizes there’s only one man he may trust to make these uninhibited intentions come to fruition: his best friend Miguel Santana.
Lower East Side multimedia artist extraordinaire Miguel Santana may be known as the cocky Latin stud in the city, but all he’s wanted since college was Blake’s hand in marriage. He was livid when Blake walked down the aisle with the wrong guy. Miguel has his own list titled the Seven Needs, which are quite contrary to Blake’s dirty-boy deeds. They involve serious commitments, which may leave his new-to-the-singles-scene buddy sprinting for the door, destroying any hopes Miguel has for happiness.
Can these two hunks conquer their intimate fears and love one another as only best friends can? Join the star-studded cast in The Manhattanites series and see for yourself!
I was fortunate enough to received a copy of Unsaid by Avery Aster. I had previously read XO, Blake (The Undergrad Years #3) and I have to say Blake and Miguel's story was always the one i was looking forward to most. I was not disappointed at all! This is a beautiful story filled with some much emotional heartbreak and a real romantic development between our two heroes. Blake is so damaged going into this book after the breakdown of his marriage and it is so amazing to see him grow and take his time learning to trust again. Miguel is equally as perfect as he loves Blake enough to give him the time and support he needs as well as going through his own emotional hang ups. Aster is a wonderful writer who manages to get the reader fully invested within the pages of her books.
I recommend this book to everyone as it is a series that connects to so many different people regardless of age, gender or sexual orientation and i applaud her for bringing up difficult subjects so beautifully.
