The Right One by Felice Stevens Release Blitz

The Right One by Felice Stevens Book Blitz

“Wrong never felt so right.”

Morgan Cantrell is a survivor. After running away from an abusive husband, he’s finally divorced and starting over, but it’s hard. Of course he doesn’t mean to set off the smoke detectors in the building or short out the electricity in his apartment. Mistakes happen. The last thing he wants is to draw the attention of his growly, moody-ass super. Every time they meet, it’s like oil and water—they just don’t mix.

Leo DeLuca learned at an early age that the people who are supposed to love you only hurt you. He’s happy to keep to himself, but the walking disaster of a new tenant in 5C won’t stop getting in his way and into his business. They can’t even speak to each other without arguing, but Leo has to admit—it’s kind of a turn on. That must be the reason why he can’t stop thinking about the guy in 5C. Or wanting to touch him. But hell, no. That would be a mistake.

One kiss leads to an explosive night both men fight to forget—after all, Leo has nothing in common with the sweet kindergarten teacher while Morgan is looking for a happily ever after he knows Leo can’t give. Yet it’s Morgan who Leo leans on to help deal with his painful past, and Leo is the key to unlocking Morgan’s inner strength.

Trusting someone is never easy, but it might be the only way they discover that everything they think is wrong about each other, could be everything that's right.

Author’s Note: This book deals with domestic and verbal abuse and contains discussion of past traumatic events.

Leo had recognized the shadows in Cantrell’s eyes. He saw that pain and loss in the mirror every day, and every day he ignored it. If Leo were to hazard a guess, it must have something to do with his failed marriage. No one went from luxury to low-cost without a damn good reason.

“Well, Mr. Nosy Ass, you still have to eat.” He gathered up the items, put them in a bag, and left his apartment.

Trudging up to the fifth floor, he figured Cantrell would’ve had enough time to cool off and they could calmly discuss the reasons why he should leave the management of the building to the people who knew what they were doing.

He knocked on the door, and he waited impatiently as Cantrell unbolted the three separate locks he’d had installed. After all that, Cantrell still only opened the door as far as the security chain would allow, but even in those few inches, Leo could see the consternation filling Cantrell’s wide green eyes.

“What do you want? Did you come here to keep yelling at me? I already said I was sorry.”

“Actually, you didn’t.”

“I’m pretty sure I did. And even if I didn’t, you had no right to call me names.”

Cantrell’s stubbornness began to grate on Leo’s nerves. That was why he didn’t waste time with people. Inevitably, they pissed him off, like this guy.

“I call them as I see them. And are you going to stand there and say to my face you were right in fumbling around with the electrical system of this entire building that I’m responsible for?”

“If you came to berate me, I’m going to close the door. I have better things to do than listen to you.” True to his snooty words, he started to close the door, but Leo quickly stuck his foot in the narrow opening.

“I thought we could have an intelligent discussion, but obviously, that’s not happening. So here.” He held up the grocery bag. “I got the stuff you left behind when you ran away from me in the supermarket. I knocked on your door yesterday, but when no one answered, I didn’t want to leave it and have the meat spoil. You’re welcome.”

Without waiting for Cantrell’s reply, he set the grocery bag on the floor and turned on his heel. At the top of the stairs he heard a door slam shut, then open, and Cantrell call out.

“Wait. Please?”

Leo closed his eyes. He really should walk away and leave that mouthy little fucker alone. “What is it?”

“Th-that was nice of you. You didn’t have to do it.”

“I know.” Leo crossed his arms and waited.

“Thank you. And…” Cantrell bit his lip. “I’m sorry. I-I guess I shouldn’t have tried to fix the problem myself. You’re right.”

The guy was pretty damn cute.

Oh hell no. Don’t even go there.

Morgan was just a doll, I loved him instantly! Leo, I had to warm up to. These two together were amazing. They balanced each other out so well. They were exactly what each other needed. There were times I wanted to smack Leo but in the end, he got his act together. Paul and his wife were great secondary characters. This was a fast weekend read with some laughs, steamy sex, and even a few tears. Highly recommend.

This is a really beautiful story of two men who have both survived being treated terribly by people who should have loved and cared for them. The damage may have happened at different stages in their lives, but it impacts them both deeply. Thankfully, both men have close friends who want the best for them and are prepared to be honest and consistent through their uncertainty and fear.

Morgan is starting over again, and has moved into a low rent apartment, with a surly superintendent (and owner) called Leo. The interactions between these two are fun and hint at a lot of heat between them, but also remind us of the damage inflicted on Morgan as he flinches when Leo gets close. Then things take a more serious turn, and we can only hope that they will both be able to handle the intensity of feelings between them.

I really enjoyed how Leo defrosted and opened up to Morgan. We know just how rare that is, given that his best friend, Peter, really knows very little. It is tragic to see him try and be the dutiful son in the face of the unpleasantness from his mother.

It really is the magic of love which gives these two men the reason to keep making an effort when things get tough, but it feels like it will be so worthwhile for them as they find their happily ever after together. Lovely story, perfect way to spend a day immersed in their world. Thank you, Felice Stevens, for another excellent story.

Morgan is starting his life over after leaving and divorcing an abusive husband. It's the first time he's been on his own. The apartment he rents is definitely a downsize from the spacious place he shared with his ex-husband, but Morgan doesn't care. He wants to prove he can do it on his own. Morgan's little mishaps draw the attention of the moody super and owner, Leo. Leo is an extremely private person carrying his own baggage but when an unlikely friendship plus starts, Leo and Morgan can't help but depend on each other.

I enjoyed this read and was invested in the characters and their path. Watching Leo and Morgan grow and open up to each other made for a sweet read. Highly recommend.

At six fifteen, Leo coasted in front of the building, and Morgan’s heart picked up speed. In a black t-shirt and faded jeans ripped in some interesting places, Leo was every fantasy Morgan had dreamed of since he was fourteen and figured out he liked guys. Only, Leo was real.
