Molly Reviews and Giveaway: Dare to Hope by TM Smith (All Cocks Book 4)

Blurb:
Tristan is the second oldest of the Brennan brothers and the odd man out. Most of the Brennan men have careers in law enforcement, but as a psychiatrist, Tristan chooses to help people in a different way. Quiet and restrained, he is content to hover in the background of his more gregarious brothers. Then he meets two men, each broken and damaged from losses beyond their control.

Gabriel Simenson is mourning his lover’s death. The random act of violence that took Gio’s life has left everyone at All Cocks reeling. The only thing keeping Gabe from drowning in misery is the friendship he’s forged with Micah, the newest model at All Cocks. He continues to struggle, and at the urging of his All Cocks family Gabe agrees to counseling with Tristan under one condition: Micah must go with him.

Micah Solo can relate to unbearable loss, having lost his leg and so much more in Iraq. The past two years he has been alone, adrift and vulnerable — the memories of war haunting his dreams, spilling over into his daily life. At All Cocks, Micah has found the acceptance he craves and the family he lost, but still he yearns for happiness and peace within.

The friendship between the three is instant, the mutual attraction evident. They circle each other, wanting more, yet unsure if it is truly possible. Is life the mundane reality they’ve each come to accept for themselves or do they dare to hope?

The All Cocks Stories is a series set within the world of online gay porn.

*Warning* Micah’s PTSD is told in detail, including flashbacks to his time in Iraq.

Review:
I was so glad to have Gabe, Micah and Tristan’s story. They all had so much story to tell I was eager to read it. I enjoyed seeing Micah and Gabe blossom with their friendship to each other and Tristan. They worked so hard to heal from their loss and they overcame huge obstacles.
Micah was someone that I wasn’t sure how he’d handle the ups and downs of a growing relationship. He had his fair share of depressive moments but he was the one that was the most mature about things. Gabe broke my heart. With his loss and not handling it well I was afraid the relationship was doomed from the start. He took a while to get where he was ready for those feelings again. But once he was there he was all in and it was beautiful. Tristan disappointed me a tiny bit. He was the one I expected to act the most rationally and with the most thought involved. I was glad when he had the talk with his dad to shake some sense into Tristan.
I thought the scene where Gabe and Micah meet Tristan’s family was great! I loved how Gran reacted to Tristan having two male partners. Some of her comments in that scene had me cracking up. I loved getting to see the other couples from previous books. It’s so nice seeing they’re still happy together and to catch up with them briefly. I’m curious about Beau and his story. I want to know more about him and what makes him act the way he does. Hopefully his story is next so I can find out his reasons!
