Clay and Ronnie are nothing alike, yet have been friends for years.  When Clay needs Ronnie the most, the other man is there to lend a hand.  So what are these two to do, when a night of passion reveals more than either may be ready to handle. 

Eyes Only For Me is the newest book by Andrew Grey and is a well done gay for you story.  The main characters are easy to like and are older than we usually see, which works really well in this story.  Clay is gay and has been in love with Ronnie for a while. Since Ronnie is straight and a bit of a player and Clay doesn’t want to lose his friend, he says nothing. When Clay’s father ends up in the hospital, Ronnie steps up.  I like that the author uses this moment to show what kind of man Ronnie really is.  I also like that the author shows how strong the men’s current relationship is, as it is sure to take a few hits once the nature of that relationship changes. 

Needless to say that with everything Clay is going through concerning his dad; he is floored by Ronnie’s actions.  He is also worried how their night of passion will change their friendship and gives Ronnie an out.  Of course, things do not go smoothly for either man, once they return to “normal” life.  It is easy to understand what both men are going through with Ronnie having to come to terms with the fact that he is falling in love with a man, and Clay with the possibility that one night with the man he loves has cost him everything. 

Like all of Mr. Grey’s stories I found myself pulled into the world he built.  I wanted the two men to find their happily ever after, but worried that they would be kept from doing so.  Fans of this author may want to know that this story is a little more angst-ridden than what we normally see from him, yet everything is believable which makes the story more realistic.  Eyes Only For Me is sure to find its way to many keeper shelves, and is one story I will be reading again.
