“This book didn’t have the same intensity between the two characters as the first one did.” ~Under the Covers

I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in this series and seeing Malcolm and Owen first get together.  In CITY MOUSE, Owen has decided to stay and live in London with Malcolm and give their relationship a real try.

But after their emotional weekend together, Malcolm returns to his high stress job and Owen goes in search of his job.  And when he finds it, it’s not to Malcolm’s standards.  CITY MOUSE basically deals primarily with the issues of a job on a relationship.  From Malcolm’s absence due to working late hours, to him putting down Owen for not getting paid enough and working in a bad neighborhood.

I liked that Owen stayed true to his character and didn’t let Malcolm steamroll over him.  We’ve known Malcolm to be an ass from the beginning, and he still has a lot to grow and learn.

However, this book didn’t have the same intensity between the two characters as the first one did.  Yes, there were some hot moments but I was definitely missing something.  I guess this was just ok for me, but it was nice to see them after the last page of their book and see that they are working on their relationship and learning to give and take.
