5 Stars from Jaymie at Bayou Book Junkie

Bryce and Seth are back from their cruise and are starting the next step of their new life together. Step one: move Seth in. Step two: figure out what needs to be done to sell Seth and Mark's home. But, as always, nothing can be that easy. It turns out that there is a lot more work to be done to the Lincoln Park home than Bryce knew.  On top of that Seth is faced with the fact that Mark's suicide is being called into question. Just when they think it couldn't get any worse, someone from Bryce's past reappears and may just destroy everything they have. 


I enjoyed Open House and it was great catching back up with Seth and Bryce now that they are getting back to their routines and everyday lives.  We see a completely different Bryce this time around. You'd have no clue he was anti- monogamy before Seth.  I liked the way he embraced being a boyfriend/partner not to mention how he really stepped up to help Seth even though at times it may have been difficult. 


In turn, Seth was there for Bryce as well. He didn't let his grieving take over his life, he felt it and talked about it but he also was able to put his all into his relationship with Bryce. He was strong when Bryce needed him to be and he shouldered as much as he could so that they could start building a future together. 


The main conflict of the story isn't set around the couple's relationship which made me happy. Instead, they are faced with someone from Bryce's past whose intentions towards the men are far from good. Now the guys are confronted by a sociopath all while dealing with revelations about Mark's illness and suicide. 


I definitely recommend Open House, especially if you were a fan of Open Seating. Now I just have to wait for book 3 to be released. 


5 Stars!
