    PDF/EPUB It Takes Two Epub ½ It Takes PDF/EPUB or ✓ ukrbank.pro takes book, It Takes pdf, It Takes Two KindleThis was a book which made me fell in love with Elliott Mackle's writing I bought the old paperback edition couple years ago from the third party seller on and when I saw that it is reissued on Kindle I bought the ebook as well After rereading I realized that I never reviewed it so here is my attempt to rectify thisOut of three books that I have read by this writer I would say that this is probably the most romantic one Dont get me wrong it is also a great historical and murder mystery investigation but while Bud and Dan do not talk about how much they love and care for each other actually Bud talks very little about that period since he is not a POV character them falling in love is very very clear for the reader a

    PDF/EPUB It Takes Two Epub ½ It Takes PDF/EPUB or ✓ ukrbank.pro takes book, It Takes pdf, It Takes Two KindleVery well written book with believable characters The period is captured vividly and scarily real like a real good reminder of how things were in the old days The romance between Dan and Bud is a bittersweet one both characters are adults with a painful past Dan is comfortable with his sexuality and willing to take risk he acknowledges his feelings for Bud is than a friendly fuck buddy but Bud is stubborn and in denial However Bud's affection and his sweet nature still come through the pages even though all readers want to knock some sense into his thick skullThe mystery plot is a integral part of the story and it's nicely set among conspiracy power struggle racism and corruption Very grim stuff but very worth to be immersed into

    PDF/EPUB It Takes Two Epub ½ It Takes PDF/EPUB or ✓ ukrbank.pro takes book, It Takes pdf, It Takes Two KindleI debated between three and four stars for this one because it's an odd book but I liked the writing I did have some issues with it mainly that the mystery that's introduced at the beginning is largely shoved aside The book focuses on the relationship between Bud and Dan and I wondered why the mystery was introduced at all since it was given the short shrift I guess the author felt he needed the back story to make the main story work Mackle is ambitious in trying to intertwine homosexuality race relations and the military in one novel and the approach doesn't always work But It Takes Two is a good read and an interesting look at life on Florida's Gulf coast in the late 1940's
