Review: Code Yellow (Heroes at Heart #3) by Susan Laine

Code Yellow (Heroes at Heart, #3)




Two years have passed since that long, dark, night of despair and near death when English-lit geek Yancy Bell met dancing jock Curt Donovan. Now a couple living in New York, they appear happy and well suited to one another.

But appearances can be deceptive.

Yancy feels Curt is growing distant, and they barely see each other. At Juilliard, Curt has bonded with a new friend, Greg. Yancy fears his relationship with Curt is coming to a head. Meanwhile,Curt harbors a secret that could spell the end of Yancy’s love for him.

Yet neither man dares to confront his fears—or the other.

Will their fate be a code yellow or a golden opportunity?


This was a beautiful and bittersweet story of love and trust. The characters are so nice, it’s so easy to fall in love with them.


Yancy and Curt have two years together and, in the eyes of everyone else, everything is perfect. But mistrust begin to hurt Yancy when Curt starts to spend too much time apart from him, especially when he notice that Greg, Curt’s new friend, appeared to have everything in common with him. Communications haven’t proven to be the most important feature in either of them. Will their relationship be as strong as they thought or will this situation prove that they have been living an illusion?


This is the third book in a series, but it begins by making a nice summary of important events in the previous books, so it would work perfectly as a standalone. It had very intriguing moments and a nice steady pace.


It was such a nice book to read. It was so melancholic, I really enjoy the author’s ability to transmit the character’s emotions. It was so easy to feel the hurt and the love. That was the part I liked the most of the book. It was devastating to see such a sweet relationship grow distant, and it seemed so realistic.


The main characters were great. Yancy was so nice and since the book is told from his point of view, it was easy to feel what he was feeling. Curt seemed a little different from the previous book, at least for some moments, but I perceived this as a personal growth in a very nicely made character development. The secondary character were also very nice. There is no character in this book I didn’t like.


Curt and Yancy’s relationship is amazing, it is portray in a very realistic way, with the normal ups and downs, with a lot of struggles and with very intense feelings.


Overall it was a beautiful book. I would recommend it to any reader who likes emotional books.
