Molly Reviews and Giveaway: Hide and Seek by TM Smith (All Cocks Book 6)

Blurb:
Dusty Anderson left his hometown in Justin, Texas for the Big Apple not long after graduating high school with dreams of becoming an actor. A year later, no closer to realizing his dream but pretty damn close to being broke, he comes across a flyer in a local gay bar that provides a solution to his dilemma. Six years later, Dusty has all but forgotten his dream to be an actor. The family he gained when he went to work at All Cocks and the job itself are enough for him, for now at least.

David Thompson is barely twenty-one, high on life and starting his second year at NYU as an Art student. Now that he is old enough to enjoy the city’s night life, David finds his first crush at a local hot spot in the village, The Monster Bar. Young love is laid to rest though, when David comes out to his mother and older brother with disastrous results.

A tragic incident at the hands of David’s brother changes the course of all of their lives and brings the two together, but is it coincidence or fate? Regardless of unlikely circumstance, Dusty is inexplicably drawn to David, who suddenly finds himself alone in the world. Protective of David from the start, Dusty realizes his extended family at All Cocks and his best friend Kory will not understand this new relationship. Fearing the worst, Dusty plays a dangerous game of hide and seek, risking everything to keep David safe and sheltered.

But hiding can only last for so long, and David and Dusty aren’t the only ones dealing with uncertainties. The Dimir men find that the one thing they’ve longed for might be within reach and Dusty’s father, Dean, arrives in town unexpectedly with secrets of his own. Truths come out and trust is put to the test. Can the All Cocks family find the happiness they deserve?

This is the 6th book in the All Cocks stories series, the series would read best if read in order, but each book can be read as a standalone story.

Review:
I was so excited to read Dusty and David’s story. Once it was revealed who Dusty was dating in the previous book I had to have this story to find out everything that happens. The story did not disappoint. The journey for David to heal and be ready to have a relationship, and Dusty to handle all of the curveballs life sends his way. I couldn’t put the book down.
I really loved David. He was broken in a way that went beyond the physical when we first meet him. He had no self confidence and didn’t believe his own worth. Watching him blossom and grow into a man that could speak his mind and accept things aren’t his fault was beautiful. I liked how he kept up with his therapy and didn’t think he could be magically cured overnight. For such a young man, and for having grown up in such a bad place, David had a good head on his shoulders and could see things clearly without being overly dramatic or emotional.
Oh Dusty. He was so strong in some ways and so scared in others. I loved how he cared for David. How he ensured David was taken core of and everything was done right and nothing would set him back while David was on the path to recovery. But he was so scared of how others would react he wound up hurting his friends. He should have had more faith in them. But that fear was justified in the beginning so I got him waiting. Some of the curveballs in his path were not what I was expecting. But Dusty handled them well. Eventually anyway. He was a bit snarky and dramatic at first though based on what happened I probably would have reacted the same.
I enjoyed getting to see all of the other couples throughout the book. I liked we got to see them continue being happy and getting what they want in their relationships. This book is the last one that is about that group of guys in the very first story and it feels like everything is complete for all these guys. Everyone is happy and all of the shadows are gone. I’m sure there’s going to be more stories in this series because there’s plenty more love for these guys to give. The All Cocks family is big and welcomes everyone with open arms. But if there’s not, then I can be happy with how complete everything feels at the end of this story.
