First and First (Five Boroughs Book 3) - Santino Hassell

This is the 3rd book in the Five Boroughs series.  This book can be read as a standalone novel.  For reader enjoyment and understanding, since recurring characters may bring spoilers - I recommend reading this series in order.


Oliver AKA Oli and Caleb have an amazing night.  Then they must figure out if they can be friends, or are they headed for so much more?  Caleb feels like he is alone wanting a future with Oli.


Caleb is so head over heels for a man who cannot talk about the future.  They both stutter when talking about the past.  Can they get together despite secrets, pain and opposing forces?


This series just kicks it up with every book.  I found the characters very real and sympathetic.  What is even more gratifying is the HEA at the end.  I cannot wait to see where the author takes us next.  I give this book a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
