    1 thought on “Working It Out

    1. Meh m/m romance about a gym owner whose partner died six months ago. He's surprised to find himself with feelings for a handsome closeted doctor. Such a frustrating read! The main characters' intentions and emotions seemed to flip flop on every page. There were not one but two psycho women intent on seducing the gay main characters. The writing was choppy and simplistic. *sigh*

    2. Truly 1.5 stars rounded up. This was a ping pong book! Not just one but both characters gave me a case of e-whiplash I should need a neck massage. Both mc's couldn't decide from one paragraph to the next if one should come out and the other start a relationship so soon after the death of his partner. I literally mean from one paragraph to the next, in some cases from one sentence to the next! One character just cried too much Not the one who is grieving either. They kept changing their minds it [...]

    3. Jake lost his partner of 13 years 6 months prior to the start of the book. He hasn't come out of his depression yet and is struggling with the memories that linger. Lance is a closeted doctor who is afraid to be himself. There is an attraction and pull towards each other, but Jake worries that he is dishonoring his partner and Lance worries that coming out will ruin his career and life. There was a bit of "should I/shouldn't I" all throughout the book, and there were times when it made sense but [...]

    4. I didn't enjoy this book at all. I found it very slow moving and quite boring. I didn't warm up to the main characters either, neither of them could make up their mind about their relationship and they kept going back and forth. It was a poorly executed story and I wish I hadn't wasted my time reading it.

    5. DNF @ 33% Great set up but the execution was sorely lacking. The MC's' inner monologues were all over the place and half the time they didn't make sense. The MCs were fickle and sophomoric. The writing was choppy and the storyline was filled with fortutious and unbelievable events that were obvious plot devices.Bottom line: A waste of time.

    6. I'm very disappointed in this story. I expected more from Ms York. I'm just glad that this wasn't the first book that I've read of hers because I know this isn't indicative of her normal writing.

    7. I'm actually very disappointed in this one. It was very "jumpy". The whole story seemed to jump from one thing to another. One extreme to another even. In both MC's It made for very confusing, and chaotic reading. On top of that it seemed that either or both of them were constantly in tears. I have no problem with grown men crying, but this truly went completely overboard in my opinion. Because of this I really couldn't gain any sympathy for either of the MC's nor their points of view. Add to th [...]

    8. I have to say, after reading this book, I'm kinda shocked by those low ratings previously posted. This is a very sweet love story that, imho, is most likely very close to reality for some couples. It kept my attention throughout the entire book. I guess it would just depend on what you are looking for from a story. Please don't take the reviews for a book to heart. If it sounds good to you, give it a shot, no matter how many low ratings have been left. I'm very glad I read it.

    9. This was a GAY book. I say that emphatically because every aspect of the plot was about this issue. One MC was an out widowed gym owner, the other a closeted orthopedic physician. I felt there was too much worrying and indecisiveness and too many crises for it to be fully enjoyable. One error in the Kindle edition was chapter 22 location 2501 "You can't say here" should have been "You can't stay here."

    10. This book was not for me. The characters were unrealistic and annoyingly inconsistent. They couldn't figure out what or who they wanted and were all over the place from page to page. When they swore off sex ("no tea bagging") to try to have a relationship After having sex, confessing their love and the closeted dude agreeing to come out, it was time to put a fork in it for me. Tea bagging? That felt like something a teenager would say when goofing around with friends.

    11. A Wonderful Love Story!My heart hurt for Jake from the beginning. I could understand his pain and despair over losing a lover and best friend. I loved Lance. He was so understanding. I loved how Jake recognized his growing love for Lance and did not make him compete with Mark's ghost.

    12. I don't know what to say except that this book was disappointing to say the least. I mean it sucked. The mc's were not believable and the dialogue was horrible between them. Who talks like that? Answer, no one, not even a figment of my imagination. Dissatisfaction guaranteed.

    13. I did not connect with either character. They were both so wishy washyd then they finally work it out and the story ends. An epilogue would have been nice

    14. Amazing how things can happen in a persons life to lead them to acceptance and bravery. As well as letting them learn to love themselves for who they truly are. So loving Sara Yorks' stories.

    15. Usually I enjoyed this author’s work, I say usually because there were a few things that irritated the hell out me in this one. I understand men can be in touch with their emotions but I seldom see anyone burst into tears half as much as Lance does. Also Jake was grieving but it was mentioned in all ost every one of his thoughts. We get it! it’s goig to be hard for him to move on, and so it should be since they were together for quite some time. I did well not ‘like’, but liked the angst [...]

    16. I wanted to like this more than I did because it had the makings of a good story. Jake, who has recently lost a loved one, meeting an orthopedic surgeon, Lance. However, the characters seemed to miss a bit of a spark for me.

    17. Good quick read. The dialog didn't always give the impression of a male speaking. Ending was abrupt. I wish the secondary characters had more dialog.

    18. These two characters are meant for each other! It's great watching them work their way together. Sara tells a remarkable love story with struggles and emotions. Great read!

    19. A love after love story, this failed for me with wishy washy characters.Title: Working It OutAuthor:Sara YorkGenre: M/M Contemporary RomanceMain Characters:Jake Grant lost his partner of 13 years in a boating accident six months ago. He is still a wreck - barely sleeping, working out too hard, not eating, and talking about selling everything that reminds him of Mark and moving away.Lance Abbott is an orthopedic surgeon, barely out of medical school, trying to get a practice off the ground. While [...]

    20. Working it Out by Sara York is an internally focused novel revealing much of the story in the thoughts of the main characters, Jake Grant and Lance Abbott. Personal trainer and gym owner, Jake is not looking to get involved with anyone new after the death of his lover and partner. While Lance is in the closet and not sure, he ever plans to come out. He's seen what happens when people find out you're gay.York's focus in Working it Out is strictly on the emotional landscape of Jake and Lance's liv [...]

    21. well. In the opening pages the orthopedic surgeon Lance sexually assaults his patient Jake and I was ready to back button right then and there but thought I'd give it another few pages. Then you have Lance apologizing not for the assault but for rudely kicking Jake out of the office when someone shows up and he says "I'm bad at relationships" WHAT RELATIONSHIP. You assaulted him in your office and kicked him out WHERE IS THE RELATIONSHIP? THEN he demands Jake come to his house for supper. This i [...]

    22. Come here, come here, get away, get away, maybe yes? maybe no? God these two wore me out. I stuck with it to the end because I had to know. Jake & Lance were more anxiety ridden then a cat in a room full of rocking chairs. Their relationship was work in progress slow, arduous progress. I would have been very happy to give them both a shake and a swift kick in the pants. Jake is well muscled gym owner getting over the unexpected death of his partner of 13 years, as in business & life, and [...]

    23. I wanted to like this, but this really needed a good edit. It was repetitive and scattered. There didn't seem to be any type of flow to the story and it really should have been about a third of the length. There's nothing wrong with a short story if it's good and has a clear plot. I felt like this book didn't. The idea was good but the execution was lacking.And don't even get me started on the women. My god, the women! Are there no straight men in the universe in which this story takes place? It [...]

    24. Awesome bookI have read a few of Sara books and this one is just as good as the other ones. Jake has been through a lot when he meets Lance the hot doctor who is a closet gay man can Jake find a way to bring him out or is he going to have to leave him alone because he can't go there. This was a awesome book loved it from page one to the last. You well fall in love with Jake and Lance.

    25. I have to echo some of the other comments made about the emotional roller coaster this story was for me. The characters flipped back and forth so frequently, sometimes almost in the same sentence. It made the story choppy and almost made me stop reading in the middle. I made it through to Jake and Lance's HEA, and I have to say that that did feel genuine. I just wish the ride along the way hadn't felt so manic and wishy-washy at the same time.

    26. ***2016 has been a very unstable year. Not only have I lost favourite role models in droves, I have been into dark places more times than I could count. Yes, I experienced highlights as well but the darkness has had a big impact this year and the only way to keep it at bay was reading, mass reading, back to back books with no stopping and no reviewing. I do apologize to all the writers that I won’t be able to review their books yet but I will get to it. Promise!***

    27. Great story!I really liked this story. Full of emotion and love, these two men meet, one dealing with the death of his partner, the other so far in the closet it isn't true. There is attraction and chemistry, but stepping out of the closet and being there front and center is no easy task. As they struggle to balance it all, an act of hatred brings it all out and finally letting go and being who you are is just what the doctor needed.

    28. I really loved and enjoyed reading this wonderful bookI loved reading this book I also love the relationship between Jake and Lance. I love the twists and turns in this book and the struggles they go through in their relationship. I have always loved reading this author's books. This is a wonderful book to read. I will recommend this book to everybody I know and to all my friends too.
