Nate Marquette hasn’t allowed a man near his heart in years. Being gay could cost superstar Kevin Connolly his career. Their attraction is instantaneous and won’t be denied. Will Nate’s trust issues cause the relationship to fizzle out before it’s began, or will Nate find that Kevin is his Somebody To Love?

Carolina Valdez’s Somebody To Love brings us a long distance relationship between two unlikely characters. Nate is a firefighter and helicopter logger, with a love of the great outdoors. Kevin is a recognized celebrity who wants to keep some part of his life private and away from prying eyes. Their meeting was sexy and drew me into the story. There was no way Nate couldn’t be drawn to Kevin, and I would have gladly switched placed with him at that moment.

Over the course of the relationship, the men have some misunderstandings that were believable and had me questioning if they would find a way to get everything out on the table. Thank goodness, one of the characters has an unstoppable tenacity when it comes to love. I found the story well written and a breath of fresh air. This was my introduction to a character that works as a helicopter logger and I enjoyed learning about the profession. Those who enjoy gay romance will find this story well worth a read.
