Release Day Review: You Never Know by Mary Calmes
Mitch returned for three reasons: to raise his sons where he grew up, to move his furniture business and encourage it to thrive, and to win Hagen back. Years away made it perfectly clear the young man he loved in high school is the only one for him. The problem? He left town and they have not talked since.
If Hagen’s going to trust him again, Mitch needs to show him how he’s grown up and isn’t going to let go. They could have a new chance at love… but Hagen is insistent he’s not reviving a relationship with Mitch. Then again, you never know.
My disappointment? At the beginning of this book, Hagen is in a 'kinda' relationship with Ash, albeit a physical arrangement rather than a romantic one, but this arrangement continues for more than half of the book. It is only after the 60% mark that we get any indication that Hagen may entertain the idea of rekindling his relationship with Mitch. Both of these relationships had their appeal, but this book needed to be substantially longer to do justice to the story of Hagen and Mitch, after the focus being elsewhere for so long.
