Responsible Adult is such an appropriate name for this series. Micky is struggling in the adulating department. He tries but he has such a short fuse on his volatile temper. It’s a temper that has gotten him into trouble in his past. Micky knows he can’t get into any more trouble. He knows that with his past it is going to be difficult to get guardianship of his brother. Micky is only nineteen years old and having to play the role of sole provider, caregiver, and parent to his disabled little brother Flynn. Flynn requires a lot of time. Micky is juggling school, work, and home as best he can. It’s not the life Micky wants but he’s doing the best he can for Flynn with what little he has. A social life, much less dating is most certainly not in the cards.
As a department supervisor at Morgan’s Dan is responsible for some of the hiring. He’s so desperate for a new employee that is motivated to work that he looks past Micky’s previous employment termination and the criminal record and hires him anyways. They’re both in a situation where they’re the answer to the others problem. Micky has to have a job so that he can keep a roof over his head and food on the table. Dan has to have more help at work so he can actually see the outside of the grocery store instead of covering others duties. The attraction and giving into that desire was completely unexpected for both of them.
I enjoyed most of what I read with Misdemeanor. Flynn is a sweetheart who you just can’t help but want nothing but the best for. It’s easy to see why Micky has no problems making sacrifices for his little brother. The pacing of Dan and Micky’s relationship is fast yet the constant stop and goes for them make it jerky. Relationship is something very new to Micky though. He’s used to closeted one time hook ups. This allows for the jerkiness of the flow of their building relationship not to be a frustrating as it could be. Micky’s age also plays a large role in his behavior. He is so young to be dealing with all that he is trying to do.
As for the cliffhanger… it’s not as big as it could have been. This being part one of a serial should have clued me in but I missed that. I will definitely continue reading the serial. I will probably wait until I can read the remainder at the same time though.
