Random Review: Starting Over by CJ Baty #Review #Giveaway

Title: Starting Over
Series: The Knights Club #1
Publication Date: September 18, 2018
Length: 82 pages

Xavier Knight was starting his life over. A new city. A new club. The past was gone, and he had everything to look forward to… except… love. That ship had sailed, never to return. He was too old to play the games or stack up the one night stands. Until, an old enemy’s son walked into his club and his heart.

Sebastian Brady was through. Through with hiding who he was. Through letting his brother officers dictate his life. And completely through, with his family telling him who he was. He turned his back on his badge and his family’s heritage in the Atlanta police force. But, he never imagined that he’d be serving drinks in a gay bar and working for the hottest silver fox he had ever seen in his life.

Xavier and Seb have a lot to learn from each other. Hopefully, their growing love will survive Xavier’s past, Seb’s family, and a host of characters with secrets of their own, who all work at the Knights Club.

As a start for a series I think this was a nice read. There is a lot we get to know. 
We meet all the side character but only briefly.

Xavier takes over the gay club from his friend, it's a whole new beginning.
Seb resigned  as a cop with no grievances at all, finally he can breathe freely... a whole new beginning.

When Seb starts his new job at Xavier’s club he couldn’t have guessed his homophobic and bigoted family issues would be give him a huge problem... but they do!

The concept is good, a gay bar, age gap, the promise of getting to know more about all the guys who work at the bar. I’m not sure how the sequels will be. I really hope there will be more about Xavier and Seb, so we get their whole picture. This was a short read and the writing is nice but for me, it shortens a bit of the development. It could've been more deepened and wider. I do hope a sequel will pick this up.
Overall it was a kind story with some sharp edges. It has a nice appearance.
