Boone Daniels returns to his New Mexico home after a vacation romance with Wade Walker. The attraction between the two men was instant, quickly followed by the initiation of a love affair. However, now that Boone is home, he is overwhelmed by doubts. Wade is afraid Boone is pulling away. Both men are suffering from separation anxiety.

Life in Fusion is the hilarious well written sequel to Sno Ho. The elaborate plot gives a detailed description of all the characters, along with their reaction to Wade and Boone’s proposed live-together relationship. Also within the plot is a partial sci-fi story written by Boone. The main characters are credible. The secondary characters are comical. Boone is an independent intelligent would-be author. He constantly thinks up snarky comments to conceal his emotionally vulnerable personality. Boone desires a long term relationship, yet he worries he is not worthy of such a commitment.

Wade is a considerate man who accepts Boone’s quirky traits. The strong love they share with each other is the motivator that induces Boone and Wade to endure the idiosyncratic friends and family. Boone and Wade's personalities are complete opposites on several levels. Boone is addicted to coffee, likes junk food, while Wade is all about healthy eating plus staying fit.

Life in Fusion illustrates how finding the middle ground blends their personalities into a feasible permanent liaison. The amazing Ethan Day has produced a marvelously entertaining saga that I enjoyed tremendously.
