A wonderful, and mature love story. I really liked both Eric, and Shane. It was refreshing to read a story about grown men who act like adults. I like that Eric has a solid relationship with his ex wife, and daughter, and that Shane doesn't spend all his time talking about how his ex was the villain who broke his heart. It's nice to see fully developed women in an mm romance. I also liked that they didn't fall instantly in love, there was lust to be sure, but it took time for the men to get to know each other before love came into play. I appreciated that they were about the same age, and that Eric didn't work under Shane. It made the balance of power more equal, and I like that neither one was taking advantage of the other. The scenery was a nice touch, and made me want to visit Okinawa. I really liked how the history, scenery, and language worked its way into the story. It gave it a real depth, and sense of place lacking in so many other romance novels. One of my new favorite L.A. Witt stories.
