Jonah Stevens has spent most of his adult life helping to care for his sister and trying to keep his beleaguered family from fraying at the edges.
He sees a funny, sexy, confident man who—against the odds—seems to like Jonah in spite of his very ordinary, but difficult, life. All the time the book is dealing with the love story with Jonah it is great. Even the super sad parts. I love a geek hero and they both have geeky hobbies. I love a plain Joe which Jonah is. I love the Jonah is steadfast and in pursuit.
He is awesome. Ethan's backstory is sad but the details of his family drama are a bit of a splatter effect and not as well detailed as it could be. This book parallel in time with the first two books in the series and I read it out of order but it is likely better in order. Victor Kalinski, all-star forward for the Boston Barracudas, is one of the biggest jerks in professional hockey.
Before long his aggressive attitude gets him shipped off to play in the minor leagues. So much goes on this book but it is well paced and each moment gives me more of everything I like in a book.

The chemistry between Victor and Dan is off the hook, as is the banter, the friends and the love. Vic is pretty damaged but he is also big hearted and so funny. And best of all he works on himself.. Dan is adorable and so steadfast. This is a wonderful love story that has all the fun and all the feels. Evan Costa learned from a very early age that there was no such thing as unconditional love and that it was better to settle for what you could get instead of expecting the world to give you what you need.
As Ethan, porn model for Johnnies, he gets exactly what he wants—comradeship and physical contact on trade—and he is perfectly satisfied with that.

There is a really not great part where Kane the hero in the last books gets referred to by an animal name. It really makes the book sink in those places. Also, Ethan should have good back to therapy. Lots of triggers in this book too but more off screen than in Book 1 and Book 4. Original post: northamericanwordcat. Carter Haywood lives for the weekends—specifically the one weekend every month when he escapes real life, with all the pressures of work and caring for his special needs brother, to do whatever he wants, with whomever he wants.
After one incredibly passionate encounter, he breaks his rule and goes back. He needs to see this man again. And again. Damaged goods. Or so he thinks. Every month, leaving Carter proves to be more and more difficult. As months pass and they grow closer Reed finds himself falling for Carter, but he needs more than hurried hugs and farewell kisses.
He wants it all. Once bodies are engaged, the heart is sure to follow, and Carter and Reed discover that holding on to each other is the first step in letting go of the past. Why does it have to be a secret? So, for me the main conflict of this book is too drawn out and it would have been a richer love story if we got more time with them as couple living their lives. They are both complex enough people that conflict could come from who they are and adjusting to being a family.
Matthew Darcy is a romance writer in a rut. With billions to his name, Cal Croft has everything… except someone to love. Can a struggling romance writer who delivers flowers for a living possibly have anything in common with a handsome billionaire with his own Learjet?
And then it went off the rails with a freak out and too much wish fulfillment and not enough Happily After Time. A new person will enter your life in the early year, Leo. Look past any moments of frustration they might bring and laugh—this could be the start of a thriving friendship. Theo Wallace usually laughs at the horoscopes his mom sends. Still hung up on his ex-girlfriend and practically friendless, this one begs him to reconsider. Because a friendship that stuck, that thrived…. When his sister Leone challenges him to find her the perfect date for a spring wedding, Theo uses it as a chance to make new friends.
Jamie Cooper seems to be a possible and convenient match. Real convenient. Like written in the stars, convenient. All he has to do is make sure this Jamie is good enough. Could really be The One for her, and the friend for him. This is a light romance with a great pair of siblings, a lot of banter, and a slow burn with a clueless hero. Boy is Theo clueless. The banter is wonderful but it can also go a bit far when I long for more emotionial connections.
He wants kindness, he wants love—and he wants someone who thinks sex is as fantastic as he does. The truth is much more painful: Mason and Terry are perfectly compatible, and they totally get each other. We have age and class difference and in really knowing that a better way of being exists for both of them. They are both use to a certain kinds of the relationship. For Terry, it is simply sexual and for Mason, it has more to do with status or assumed behaviors.
They both have to learn to be in a truely loving equal partnerships.
The circle of friends is wonderful and expands. As always I love the Sacromento area setting. There is a secondary romance that I hope gets its own book. This is a love story you will get more out of if you read the first book in the series. I hope there is more!
