After Felix by Lily Morton

AfterFelix-LM-f900-web

Close Proximity, Book 3

Sometimes the best love stories come in two parts.
When Felix met handsome journalist Max Travers, it was lust at first sight. It was just his luck that he then had to develop a terrible case of feelings and got his heart broken. However, two and a half years later, he’s over all of that. His job is going well, he has good friends, and he doesn’t lack for male company. Which, of course, is when Max has to come bursting back into his life.
Felix Jackson will always be the one who got away to Max. He’s spent their time apart regretting his actions and hoping for a second chance. When an accident lands him in Felix’s less than tender care, Max is determined to grab this opportunity. The only problem is that Felix is equally determined that he doesn’t.
From bestselling author, Lily Morton comes a story of missed opportunities, second chances, and two very stubborn men. This is the third book in the Close Proximity series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Review

Felix might have a sharp tongue and sarcastic wit but it hides a soft and wounded soul. Everyone likes him for a good time and Felix can’t complain since he likes sex as well but no one ever sticks around after. Of course, Felix never expects them too and maybe that’s part of why they always leave. The walls Felix has built around his heart are pretty impenetrable until he meets Max Travers. Max and he start off on the same page—in lust and ready to do something about it with no strings attached. Unfortunately Max somehow gets under those sturdy walls Felix loves and before long Felix has broken his own cardinal rule and fallen for the guy. But Max’s heart already belongs to someone else—someone he can never have but still pines over and loves—Ivo. When the two of them attend Ivo’s wedding it all comes to a head and Felix sees the truth—he has to get out and never see Max again despite the fact that it will break his heart.

For two years Max lives with the fact that he let Felix get away—too bad it never occurred to him while the guy was his that he loved him. Blinded by his loyalty to Ivo and his belief that it was love, Max lost the one man he could see loving the rest of his life. Now circumstances have presented themselves that will allow Max to be with Felix for two months—he has just that long to convince the hard headed snarky man to take a second chance on him and stay with him forever.

Lily Morton finishes the Close Proximity series with After Felix and it is absolutely wonderful. Felix and Max together is everything I had hoped for to finish this great series. Two men who claim to not need a relationship to fulfill them, who prefer hot and intense sex and the ability to walk away after never see how deeply they fall for each other until it’s almost too late. The breakup that occurs in this story is gut-wrenching but the reconciliation and hope for a future together is just marvelously funny and just as intense. I love this novel for so many reasons but perhaps the key one is that two men who never wanted love also never see it coming and resist it to the bitter end—well, at least Felix does.

The smart mouthed younger man versus the master at hiding his stress and fears clash big time but always find common ground in the bedroom. Felix meets Max at his most vulnerable—having just left a hectic and dangerous career as a journalist who traveled to hot spots and was in constant danger for a new career that he has no idea about or what exactly it will be for that matter. Max is adrift, struggling with PTSD from his time in war torn countries that include being held as a prisoner with his friend with benefits Ivo. He has almost idolized the time he spent with Ivo confusing a deep and loyal friendship with love.

When Felix enters the picture and messes with Max’s pre-conceived notions of love it throws the older man for a loop and sets them both on a path that will ultimately see them split up and leave Felix bitter and angry. When a freak accident brings them together again, Mac is wiser and determined not to let Felix go again without a fight. But Felix is also determined—never to open his heart to Max again.

Watching these two slowly realize just how much the other means to them is what really fine romance writing is meant to be—tumultuous, heated, sexy and fun. Despite what appears to be a heavy premise, there is lots of humor in this novel and Lily Morton knows how to deliver it. Max is a virtual saint in the latter part of this book and Felix is determined to give it to him with both barrels as he makes life for Max miserable. But  Max knows the payoff for his patience will be a Felix who is loyal, loving and oh so much fun—and he wants that so very much.

After Felix is just brilliant in my book and I highly recommend it. It can definitely be read as a standalone but this entire series is just great so do yourself a favor and start with book one.

Excerpt:

“How old do you think I am?” he says mock flirtatiously, leaning in close enough that I catch his scent of sandalwood. It brings back memories of rolling all over those soft sheets in that hotel room. I’ve been perturbed to find my mind straying to memories of that room a few more times than it should have over the last week. 
He’s watching me intently again, and I swallow hard and tap my teeth thoughtfully. “I think probably sixty.” He opens his mouth in mock horror, and I laugh. “Only because you’re so wise,” I say reverently. “Being intelligent really piles the years on.”
He shakes his head. “I’m thirty-seven,” he says, trying not to laugh. “Can you see my crow’s feet?”
“A crow never made those lines. That’s surely got to be a bigger bird.” I wink at him as he laughs loudly. I eye the table where a book is sitting next to his pint. “What are you reading?”
He looks slightly awkward. “Ruth Rendell.”
“Oh, Inspector Wexford. My grandma used to watch those on the telly,” I say cheerfully.
“Thank you so much for that information,” he says darkly. “It’s made my day so happy.”
I laugh. “It’s like I carry sunshine wherever I go.” I eye him. “So, do you like reading crime novels?”
“I do.” He smiles. “I’ve always thought it would be incredibly easy to murder someone and get away with it, so I like it that people get found out in these books.”
I blink. “Said no man ever who hoped to get laid.”
He laughs. “I’m not going to murder you, Felix. Your arse is far too perky for that to happen.”
“I always knew my buttocks could save a life.”
He bites his lip, laughter brewing in those dark eyes as he leans forward. “The only way I’ll kill you is when you die from an overdose of the pleasure that my cock gives you.”
After draining my drink, I put the bottle on the table and stand up to grab my coat. “Pride goes before a fall, Max,” I say. “Maybe we’d better get you back to the hotel before you break something.”

  1. When I found PRIEST WISDOM I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contacted PRIEST WISDOM  and He told me  what I need to do before he can help me and I did what he told me to, after I provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since PRIEST WISDOM helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommend PRIEST WISDOM to anyone in need of help. Email: Supernaturalspell1@gmail.com .

  3. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email dr.azukasolutionhome@gmail.com he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
