Who We Are (Perfect Everlasting Duet #1) by Claudia Y. Burgoa ~ Book Review


USA Today Bestselling Author Claudia Burgoa pens a thought-provoking emotional duet that works through the angst of finding love amidst past hurts and the pain associated with not belonging, not fitting in.

He says they can both love me. Protect me. Be the men I need. Can I possibly believe them?

Every one of my relationships—from hookups to business partners—begins and ends with an NDA. Hell, I’ve never even been on a real date. That’s what happens when your famous, secretly gay parents go to extremes to protect their kids from the media’s unrelenting spotlight.

In a life where I try on and cast off pet projects like I change my socks, two people generate the kind of chemistry that holds my interest. Believe me, that’s saying something.

There’s my brother’s business partner, Tristan Cooperson. Mr. Hot Suit. Professional overthinker. Doesn’t just avoid mixing business with pleasure. He doesn’t mix pleasure with…anything.

Then there’s the beautiful bartender Thea Dennis. Skittish as the butterfly gracing the logo of one of her many side gigs. Hiding her past like a wounded dragon guarding its hoard.

Can you picture it? Tristan, Thea, and me. The perfect love. Untouchable by all the bad things of the world. Or capable of dragging us through the nine circles of hell.

Who We Are is the first book of the Perfect Everlasting duet. A polyamorous relationship packed with angst and two hot AF men.

Note: Part of this book was published under Uncut and significantly expanded.

4.5 Uncut Stars

In 2016 I stumbled upon a book called UNCUT by Claudia Burgoa on Netgalley and I decided to give it a try because the synopsis really intrigued me, and I am so glad that I did because my love for that book has turned into a love for this author's work. Now here we are years later and Claudia has gone back and rewrite the story, she didn't change it she just gave it more of the background and character development she felt it needed to enrich the story which made it a duet. I loved it then and I love it even more now.

Matthew Decker is the Rockstar, who loves everyone. he has a great family and an optimistic look on life. Thea is a recovering addict, She was sexually exploited when she was so young. She was a child actor and her "Father" made her do things with the directors and such to ensure that she would get the best parts, needless to say she turned to drugs and alcohol to cope with things happening in her life. And then we have Tristan whose father sent him away to "pray the gay away" when he was barely a teen. So you know there are going to be hangups with his sexuality and believing that he can love whomever he wants.

These three are so different from one another but they are perfect for each other. This book ended on a bit of a cliffhanger but I was prepared with the second so I jumped right into that one. I listened to the audiobook versions of each book but I will admit to reading my kindle copy under the covers when I couldn't sleep and needed to know what happened next. Jason Clarke, Erin Mallon, Teddy Hamilton did a magnificent job with bringing Matt, Thea, and Tristan to life.

I would recommend this book to those that enjoy STEAMY Contemporary Romances, Why Choose Romances, Grumpy/Sunshine Romances, Friends-to-Lovers Romances, or Rockstar Romances.

Happy Reading!!!
