Review: Waiting for Ty by Samantha Ann King

Tyler Coil doesn't do men. But it’s harder to remember that each time he visits his best friend, gorgeous Landon Burke. As a political reporter, Ty is good at reading people, and he can tell the lust is mutual. But giving in to it could mean alienating his ultra-conservative family.

Landon never desired a man badly enough to explore that side of his sexuality—until he met Ty. He’s waited four long years for a sign that Ty wants him too, and he can’t deny his needs much longer. So when a career opportunity arises out-of-state, Landon wonders if maybe it’s time to move on.

Then Ty crashes at Landon’s while working on a story—and a searing kiss ignites a night of mind-blowing sex that’s better than their most erotic fantasies. Forced to face his feelings, Ty must decide if love is worth the risk after all—before he loses Landon forever.

Ty and Landon have been friends for years. They both consider themselves bi-sexual but neither one of them has ever been with a man before. They see each other about every other weekend but each of them tries to keep their attraction under control. One weekend they just can’t do it any longer and they finally make their moves. It ends up being like they’ve been together forever but Ty has more than a few reservations and after the weekend leaves Landon.

Ty’s issues are with his extremely conservative family that he’s not sure he wants to leave (as he knows they won’t agree with a relationship between two men) and his work. He’s an investigative reporter and he gets a lot of his info from the good ole boys of Texas (the state they live in) and he’s not sure he could get the same info if he were with a man. After time Ty decides that a relationship with Landon is worth trying for but will Landon take him back?

This was an emotionally charge story that showed two men trying to deal with the outside world’s perceptions of them and their relationship. Ty loved his family and wasn’t sure he could live without them so it was hard for him to come to the decision to be with Landon and tell his family. Sure he could have lied to them but I admired the fact that he was honest despite the consequences.

We definitely got more of Ty’s background than Landon’s but what I read of Landon I liked. He was open and giving and willing to stand by Ty throughout the months it took to be together fully. I wasn’t a huge fan of the writing style but it all seemed to work in the end.

Rating 3 out of 5
