Worth a Shot (FIT Guys #2) by Kim Dare (5 Stars)

I adored this sweet and sexy romance with heavy character development. Tony and Donovan finally connect after admiring each other from afar. Donovan was struggling to move forward after leaving a somewhat mentally abusive and sexually pathetic boyfriend. Tony, who was protective without being controlling, was committed to helping Don replace those bad memories. There were plenty of extremely steamy scenes with lovely dialogue to help make the emotional connection. There was a bit of angst, since neither of these guys shared that they wanted to take the relationship further. This is the second book in the series, and I loved it as much as the first, Worth Waiting For.


Everyone knows that Tony Landon’s dated dozens of different men and women since he joined the athletics department at the Falconer Institute of Training. Everyone who’s ever gossiped with one of his exes knows that he’s kinky, too.

Donovan’s reputation at the institute is different. The only reason people are pretty sure he’s gay is because he drinks at the same pub as most of the gay and bi Falconer guys, and he’s never actually said he’s straight when he’s brushed them all off.

Tony’s been flirting with Donovan ever since Donovan joined the institute’s archery programme. Even though a whole year has passed and Donovan’s never given him the slightest encouragement, Tony can’t quite convince himself to give up hope.

Donovan has his reasons for not flirting back whenever Tony hits on him—right up until a snippet of overheard gossip lets him in on an interesting fact that just might change everything.

The odds are stacked against two very different men ever finding happiness together, but as far as Tony and Donovan are concerned, it’s still worth a shot.

Author note: While this story can be read as a standalone title, some elements might make more sense if you’ve already read Worth Waiting For.
