    If you re in the mood for something easy on the heart, Romance Redefined by SJD Peterson is the perfect comfort read Heartfelt longing, bittersweet misunderstandings, and a good dose of fun come together in this enjoyable, low angst story.Truly, this is the best second chance romance I ve read in ages.After a ten year relationship with Hugh Bayard, Ben Winthrop has to face facts that Hugh will never be what he needs and he s not willing to settle for less Ben gives up his home and his family to move to New York City to pursue his dreams and create a life for himself Of course Hugh keeps popping up, and he clearly wants Ben back.Ben s attraction to Hugh is as strong as ever, and when they get together the chemistry is sparking hot.The romantic scenes between Ben and Hugh are some of the most beautiful I ve read from SJD Peterson, and if you re a fan you know that s saying something Ben feels the connection with Hugh so strongly during lovemaking, that it s heartbreaking to feel how Hugh pulls away right after Ben needs, in his words, the emotional passion to carry over into their daily life if they are ever going to have a permanent relationship.Likewise, Hugh feels Ben has unrealistic expectations and tells him, I m just a man, not Prince Charming When Ben takes a step back and looks at the past ten years of his relationship with Hugh, he says, What did I see Two people who could nev...

    Welp This did not work for me I was irritated, frustrated and bored.I didn t care much for Ben or Hugh or Jason.A second chance or third MC story that, unfortunately, missed the mark Maybe it will fare better for you.

    3 StarsUgh, it s never a good thing when you have a love triangle and although from the blurb s description you pretty much know who the main character will end up with, and you re rooting for the other guy I really disliked Hugh, well maybe disliked is too strong of a word, I was indifferent of Hugh and I kinda had no clue what Ben saw in him Hugh just didn t seem to care all that much about Ben or his feelings, whereas Jason seemed to really care about and want Ben I was rooting for Jason, who was sweet and caring and funny I thought they had a lot in common and they had an easy back and forth banter, and although Jason shared the same problem as Hugh of not really listening to what Benny said or wanted at times, I really felt he was the better choice fit for Ben I felt Jason was a much well rounded and developed character, compared to Hugh who hung out in the background throughout most of the story Once we finally learn a bit about Hugh and why he is the way he is, for me at least, it was too little too late.I liked Benny and while I know you can t choose who you fall in love with, seeing him pine for Hugh was just frustrating and heartbreaking and I wanted to shake ...

    I was expecting something different when I started reading this book but I m definitely not disappointed by what I got I though it would be a story of two people finding their way back to each other by spending time together and evolving Making compromises and learning new things about each other Things that somehow escaped them the first time around.Even though a lot of those did happen in this story, it wasn t just a second chance romance It was mainy the story of Benson reexamining his life, changing the things that made him unhappy and taking a chance at making his dreams come true It was of a journey in order for him to find who he is and in the process he also found his husband again.I liked the story and the characters but I would have liked scenes with Ben and Hugh together trying to fix what was broken I would have liked to see Hugh changing and understanding what Ben was asking of him, making an effort to be open and give him with what he needed Maybe the problem was that we only got Ben s point of view here so I didn t feel like I understood Hugh bery much.A lot of times during the story I wasn t sure if they were ...

    This was soooo not a book for me Ben Benny Benson relates the entire story in 1st person, the first drawback It s entirely his thoughts and views about everyone and everything with little than dialogue exchanges to grasp any sense of the other characters Benny seemed little than a spoiled 35 year old going on 18, acting out a late teenaged rebellion He leaves his husband and his life to work at a restaurant, live in a crappy apartment and try to become an actor He was with Hugh since he was 19, married at 25 and 10 years later he resents character traits that have been there all along but Hugh just won t change for him Or so he tells us over and over and over There is almost no insight to anyone except Ben, and his is quite limited because what the hell was he doing with his life for 10 years of marriage His mother has almost nothing to do with getting them back together She has her own spoiled, petulant, self absorbed life What was up with this Jason dude For a while it sounded like he was going to be an added obsessive stalker plot line We learned about him than anyone else, I think But Hugh, supposedly the other main character, was nearly in the ba...

    It conflicted me whether I liked this or not, because, Lordthis is dragging me Especially Ben s rejection and his inability to make decision, right until almost the end of the book Ben irritated me a lot, but I don t know, I cannot hate him either, because he needed something he craved from Hugh that Hugh hard to tell His past His guilt.But I can t hate this story, it happens in real life, you know Choices has to made, and Ben torn between his love to Hugh or open his heart to the new love Jason offered him.Speaking of Jason, I think it s only fair that he could have his own story in the near future.If I m Ben, I ll probably chosen Jason already But love is the strangest thing, and mysterious Just like what Gibran said, if love chosen you, follow it .This is a second chance love story, and also a...

    In a genre as heavily saturated as romance, Peterson does an excellent job of doing something different The title, I imagine, is a nod to this This isn t a meet cute, romance develops, angst and misunderstandings, type book, it s real life I don t particularly like HFN or even HEA endings as, as we all know, meeting someone and realising you want to be together, is, comparatively, the easy part Making the relationship work is the real battle, so I very much liked this book for dealing with real issues salvaging a failing relationship.Single POV, this book is from Ben s perspective A sheltered, rich kid, who fled an unfulfilling marriage to find himself He s still in love with Hugh, and lord knows, it would all be so much easier if he wasn t, but he s not able to stay in a relationship that s little than scraps Ben s determined to make something of his life, on his own, and stop being an extension of Hugh or his family name.I liked that Peterson didn t cop out Too often authors, to preserve likeability, use conflict arising from misunderstandings as a trope In this there s no misunderstanding Hugh is, sort of, unlikeable At least to begin with He s withholding, closed off, controlling and, at times, dismissive Ben is a neglected husband and no amount of talking to Hugh got him to appreciate how wretched Ben was fee...

    3 HeartsWell, this was interesting I think I was expecting something a little different when I had initially read the blurb Romance Redefined is one of those stories where at the end I m not sure if I liked it or not That s good and bad I know I didn t hate it and I know I didn t love it I m a fan of this author and I know she can write stellar stories this one just left me with questions than anything else.Ben and Hugh have known each other their whole lives What started as neighborly friendship quickly turned into a passionate love that burned brighter than both men were ready for A string of misunderstandings, miscommunication, and a workaholic attitude leaves Ben questioning everything but mostly he knows he needs to leave Hugh and start living his own life.Divorced, Ben seeks out a new life one where he can focus on his acting and finding love again Hugh however believes Ben should give him another chance so with help from Ben s mother, Hugh sets out to win Ben back.My biggest struggles with this story were the characters Ben came off as abrasive and irrationally angry towards Hugh Hugh was a closed off punching bag and his relationship with Ben left me feeling blah The only time these two are on the same page is when they re in bed and I have to admit, they are pretty hot together.Overall, I think I liked the idea of this story a lot than I liked the story itself The writing was ...
