Reviewed Acrobat by Mary Calmes...

Forty-five-year-old English professor Nathan Qells is very good at making people feel important. What he’s not very good at is sticking around afterward. He’s a nice guy; he just doesn’t feel things the way other people do. So even after all the time he’s spent taking care of Michael, the kid across the hall, he doesn’t realize that Michael’s mob muscle uncle and guardian, Andreo Fiore, has slowly been falling in love with him.

Dreo has bigger problems than getting Nate to see him as a potential partner. He’s raising his nephew, trying to leave his unsavory job, and starting his own business, a process made infinitely more difficult when a series of hits takes out some key underworld players. Still, Dreo is determined to build a life he can be proud of—a life with Nate as a cornerstone. A life that is starting to look like exactly what Nate has been looking for. Unfortunately for Dreo—and for Nate—the last hits were just part of a major reorganization, and Dreo’s obvious love for Nate has made him a target too.
This is my first time reading Mary Calmes but it will definitely not be the last. I love her style of writing in Acrobat and she has surely gained a fan. 
I will be totally honest, I was hesitant going into this book as to whether I was going to like it or not. Although I love menage romances, I have only read 1 other book that was strictly M/M with no F involved and I did like it but I just wasn't sure that I wanted to read anymore. Acrobat seemed like such an interesting story that I just couldn't not read it. 
I loved this book right from the start!! I was immediately pulled into the story through the amazing characters and taken on such an entertaining journey that I couldn't put it down and definitely didn't want Acrobat to end!! Nate (*sighs*), Melissa, Ben, Dreo (*sighs*), Michael and a continuing list of great secondary characters took me with them on this journey towards a HEA and I was so grateful!! Such a great book and I look forward to reading more from Mary Calmes. I would definitely recommend this book and it will be going into my keeper pile to be reread. I wanted to thank Mary Calmes because through Acrobat she opened my eyes to how much I was missing by skipping over M/M stories. 
5 out of 5 rating.
