Matt Gallagher is a tattoo artist at the Dragon’s Den. He’s wild, flamboyant, outspoken, and exceedingly friendly. He’s only lived in Asheville for three years, has a wealthy background, and twin sisters who are in their final year of high school and plan to attend Oxford.
Chris and Matt couldn’t be more different if they tried, but from the moment they met they’ve been a couple. Chris accidentally dropped his wallet while rushing to get to work and Matt had yelled for him on the street while trying to get his attention in order to return it. Chris was annoyed but he was immediately drawn to Matt and they agreed to meet after work. That evening they shared their backgrounds and exchanged funny stories and when the Alley Kat closed for the night they went to Matt’s place. They both realize that what they have is much more than just great chemistry, or even great sex for that matter. They have a bond that will last throughout the years and survive the many trials and tribulations of their life as a couple.
Ally Blue has always done an amazing job writing gay male romance novels and I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each of them. LOVE’S EVOLUTION is definitely no exception. Instead of being one long continuous story, it’s broken up into smaller novella length stories and each encompasses various milestones in Chris and Matt’s relationship. I loved having the opportunity to read a little portion of their story and knowing that I could put the book down and then pick it back up and continue on with the next stage, sort of like reading a journal. Chris and Matt’s vast differences make them an intriguing couple and they seem to balance each other out perfectly.
