Susan Reviews: Ryan by Wayne Mansfield


Title: Ryan
Author: Wayne Mansfield
Publisher: JMS Books
Pages: 25
POV: 3rd
Genres: Contemporary Romance
Kisses: 3.75

Blurb:

For the past twenty years, Dane has taken care of his wealthy Aunt Beatrice. One rainy day, she’s killed in a car accident, and Dane is devastated. When he returns to the large, luxurious home they once shared, he falls into a depression.

Lonely, he places an advertisement on Craigslist, in part to find someone to keep the house clean and take care of maintenance, but also to keep him company, as he did Aunt Beatrice. The next morning, Ryan is at his door to claim the job. Soon Dane finds himself falling in love with the handsome handyman. But there’s more to both men than first meets the eye.

Secrets and shocks culminate in a decision no one should have to make. Especially without all the answers.

Review:

The blurb is quite misleading. A lot. I can’t really go into details without spoiling the surprise. But this certainly wasn’t the story I expected, about a man getting over his grief and starting to live again with a hunky handyman. That doesn’t mean, however, that this was bad.

The first chapter sets the stage with a rueful tone, a middle-aged man coping with loss in an empty mansion and sinking into apathy. It takes the place going to ruin for Dane to get a live-in housekeeper, Ryan. After that, things perk up. Literally.

The two men couldn’t be more different. Dane’s quiet and reserved, as he’s still in mourning. Ryan’s a breath of fresh air, laidback and upbeat. The characterization was done with easy, fluid dialogue that sounded realistic. The physicality of both men is shown well, the attraction and magnetic pull they feel for each other.

The plot moves with a swift pace, there’s no chance to get bored. We only get Dane’s POV, and have to interpret Ryan’s character through Dane’s view of him. The talks and behavior patterns help a lot. I got a distinct feel for both men and didn’t feel deprived of any detail.

There’s a lot of introspection and talking about serious issues but also sporadic humor and levity, not to mention sensuality. The language is efficient and to the point, and the writing style easy to follow without being flowery or over-descriptive. Mansfield can write. The relationship could have been fleshed out a bit more with longer scenes and showing the men actually getting to know each other. We learn more about Dane than Ryan who is the titular character.

Had the blurb been more true to the story, I would have given this a solid four or maybe more. The story’s quite lovely, to be honest, sweet and caring and hopeful. I recommend this to people who aren’t immediately turned off by unexpected plot twists or story surprises. In the end, this was a nice little romance with a touch of deeper questions.

Recommended!

Gabbi Reviews: A Game of Hearts by Deirdre O’Dare


Title: A Game of Hearts
Author: Deirdre O’Dare
Publisher: JMS Books
Pages: 47
Characters: Tim Hardesty, DeVore Weyrick
POV: 3rd
Sub-Genre: Contemporary, May/December Romance
Kisses: 5

Blurb:

DeVore lost the love of his life ten years ago, left his seven-figure career with a huge financial firm, and became a recluse. He now indulges a hobby of photography which has become his new vocation. At one of the few social functions he attends, he meets an amazing young man. Can he find new life and new love? The game of hearts is always risky, but what if a part of your first love now lives in another body?

Tim was a preemie and always frail. Later, an organ transplant was the only thing that could save him. Now grown, he still struggles to break restrictive family ties and find a purpose. It’s a thrill to meet the charismatic DeVore, an idol whose powerful photographs move many. But is this attraction his own, or coming from the stranger’s heart now beating in his chest?

Review:

A Game of Hearts by Deirdre O’Dare is a fast-paced, well-written read that gave me a lot of enjoyment and escapism from my hectic day. I was immediately enthralled with these two heroes lives and anxious to read their story.

From the blurb and even the title I was pretty sure how things were going to be. I thought this story would be predictable and even a little trite at times, BUT was I wrong! I was very pleasantly surprised by the outcome of this book, as well as, the way the two heroes begin to develop a life together.

I loved both the heroes. Both Tim and DeVore are intriguing, multi-dimensional men. They are both likeable men with a complicated and you can even say difficult past. Both have experienced loneliness and disappointment and the unpredictable things that life can give. In many ways, both men have been walled off from others. DeVore is a loner by his own choices and Tim has been because of overprotective parents and the side-effects of being chronically ill can often give you. When they meet, there is something special that flows between them and as they continue to get to know one another, they begin to not only bring out the best in each other, they truly begin to live a full life together.

I loved this story. I loved Tim and DeVore. I loved the pacing of it and adored how these two men truly seemed to fit together. A Game of Hearts is an easy book to recommend. It is a perfect choice for those looking for a quick romantic read that will sweep you off of your feet.

Highly Recommended!

Gabbi Reviews: Just His by Shawn Lane


Title: Just His
Author: Shawn Lane
Publisher: JMS Books
Pages: 49
Characters: Adrian Michels, Geoff Spencer
POV: 3rd
Sub-Genre: Contemporary Romance
Kisses: 4

Blurb:

After his boss at the hospital suggests he take a sabbatical for a much-needed rest, neurologist Geoff Spencer ends up at his friend’s cabin in Big Bear, California. But to Geoff’s surprise, his former lover is also there — his friend’s brother, the beautiful Adrian Michels, a brooding artist and a “commitment-phobe” who broke Geoff’s heart years earlier before leaving unexpectedly for Europe.

Now, Adrian suggests a no-strings affair while Geoff is with him in Big Bear. Although torn, Geoff eventually agrees. But what he really wants is for Adrian to be his — Just His — for eternity …

Review:

It’s easy to admit that I enjoy Shawn Lane’s stories. Her heroes are always interesting and I always find myself getting wrapped up into the story they have to tell.

As soon as I started this story, I was immediately swept up into the lives of these two men. Both Geoff and Adrian were likeable men whose paths once again meet after breaking up several years ago.

Geoff is a doctor whose personal and professional life is in an uproar because of a string of unfortunate events. When he is forced to take a sabbatical, Geoff agrees to stay at his friend’s family cabin for the duration so he can hopefully get his life back in order. When he arrives, Geoff is surprised when his first and only love, Adrian, answers the door. Geoff hasn’t seen Adrian since Adrian broke up with him years ago and isn’t sure what to do or how to react. When Adrian insists that Geoff at least stay for the night-if not longer- Geoff reluctantly agrees to do so.

At first glance the two men do not seem to fit together. Sure, there is a heated chemistry between them, but Adrian is a free-spirited artist who has had many lovers and a carefree lifestyle, whereas, Geoff is a stable man who craves a monogamous relationship instead.

As the story continues we quickly see why the two men broke up. Through this, we realize that the two men did fit together, despite living very different lives. I ended up really rallying behind Geoff and Adrian’s budding relationship with the hope that somehow they find a way to work through their differences and be together.

This is a short novel and I truly wish it had been longer. Though I was thrilled to see Geoff and Adrian together, I found myself wondering what kind of problems and road blocks these two men would have in the future. Adrian admits several time both to Geoff and to himself that he has a hard time thinking he can be with just one man, but he agrees to be monogamous because he loves Geoff and wants to be with him. It would have been interesting to see how and if they are truly able to work through this and if a free-spirit like Adrian can really commit to one place and one man.

Despite this, I really, really liked this book. It’s a great edition to the ‘His’ series and like the other books, can be read as a stand-alone book in the series. I enjoyed the story the two men had to tell and loved the happy ending. If you are looking for a quick and sexy read with intriguing characters that live and breathe off of the written page, then Just His is definitely the book for you!

Recommended!

When Kylor Knightley, a multi-millionaire nightclub owner, is out talent-spotting at an open mic event in London’s Limehouse district, the last thing the stiff-lipped Brit expects is to fall head-over-heels for a devastatingly handsome singer ten years his junior.

Born in New York, twenty-two-year-old Eden McFadden now calls London home and has ambitions of making it big in the capital’s music scene. In the meantime, the feisty free spirit is secretly rocking it as a stripper at a gay club in Soho. But when fate brings him and Kylor together in Limehouse, it starts a chain of events that tears both of their worlds apart.

It’s going to take some serious attitude adjustment for the smart-mouthed stripper and the arrogant British gent to find common ground, but the attraction is too strong to ignore. Sometimes you have to trust in fate and see where it takes you.

Bennett “Ben” Pachowski is a bouncer at Throwbacks. He likes his job, though he gets tired of being thought of as more brawn than brain. He loves books, prefers to be romanced before sleeping with a man, and has a crazy feline companion named Bessie.

Ben’s favorite band, Rebel’s Ultimatum, plays at the club on weekends, giving him an eyeful of sexy bass player, Monty Mabuse. Ben is content to flirt — nothing more. He knows the kind of person Monty is, and commitment is not something the bass player is interested in.

When Monty resorts to something devious to get what he wants, it backfires, and Ben walks away. Before he goes on tour with his band, Monty finally gets Ben to talk to him, but if Monty really wants to have something serious with Ben, he’ll have to change his ways.

A little romance could go a long way.
