I love this series and I ❤ loved this book even more than I did book 1.

When Cameron was 17 years old he was sentenced (unfairly) to 10 years of prison time. I loved Cam from the very start.

Cameron has been through a lot and he is also hiding a lot…

After serving his time, he is welcomed at the Halfway House, by Matt and Julian (book 1). He has some difficulties adjusting because 10 years is a very long time.He tries his best though and he get’s a job at a diner.

While at work he meets Hunter.

Hunter is older, gorgeous, sexy and a lawyer, an assistant state attorney, to be exact.

These two share an instant attraction with one another.

These two get to know each other and Hunter is willing to do anything to protect Cam and to prevent him going back to prison again.

I absolutely loved the mystery/suspence part of this book, and it didn’t take anything away from the romance.Just like the previous book, this is a slow burn romance and the sexual tension is so thick…

…you can cut it with a knife. 😛

But if I am being complete honest…what I loved most about this book was Cole.

His book is gonna be so great!!!

I have re-read this series many times and it has become one of my favorite M/M series.

Though this first book is not my favorite, so far that title belongs to book 3, I still enjoyed reading it very much. After reading the other books in this series (they all focus on a different couple), I got to know Matt and Julian even better, which made me enjoy re-reading this one even more.

Matt has spent 5 years in prison, for a crime he himself did not commit.

He decided to take the fall for it because he wanted to cover for his brother.

Matthew Doner

Now that he’s out, he wants to build a half-way house for people just like him. Getting help fixing up the old building he wants to use is not as easy though.

Enter Julian Capeletti, handyman.

He answers the add in the paper, to help restore the old building.

Julian seems to be kind of cold, but that’s because he has his own horrible past to deal with.uTpezJk609PIk.gif (500×289)


This is a slow burn romance. You won’t find any insta-love in this one…

But you will find a lot of sexual tension… 😛

sexual-tension-sign-archival-photo-poster.jpg (335×488):

These two men, slowly…start opening up to each other…

QNvsOQb.jpg (182×276):

There is a lot going on in the background, most having to do with Matt’s family.I hated Matt’s mother! Besides Matt’s family, there isn’t a great deal of angst in this story.

I just wished the steamy scenes would have been a bit more detailed, but hey…

…that’s just me… 😀 😛

 ~Blurb~

NB: This is a previously released title. Now in its third edition, it features a new short epilogue and has been re-edited with new cover art.

An actor on possession charges, hell bent on destroying his own life meets a man who quietly works to make the world a better place.
Jacob Riley is a typical Hollywood former child star with issues. He has already done prison time and at the age of twenty-six has been arrested again.

Ethan Myers is the owner and manager of Macs, an education center providing teaching and learning to local low income families. Losing his partner to cancer leaves him lost and alone and he buries himself in his work to start to mend his broken heart.

Sparks fly when Jacob has to complete his community service at Macs. Their relationship grows against a background of disenfranchised street gang members, arson, the Oscars, and despite their prejudices.

Can Jacob Riley be saved?

This was a nice enjoyable read.

Jacob is a famous actor and (recovering) addict. He has been sentenced to 4 months of community service at Mac’s, because of possession. I didn’t really like Jacob in the beginning.

He was a bit of an entitled asshole.

Mac’s is run/owned by Ethan. He threw his heart and soul into it, after the loss of his lover. Ethan was a good guy, he was considerate and sweet…a total opposite of Jacob.

These two don’t start off on the right foot, but as we all know….

…hate can quickly turn to lust…

This also means that Jacob’s behavior does an 180. That doesn’t mean everything is all sunshine and roses though.

They have plenty of things to work out.


The background story involves the other residents and family members.

Even though I enjoyed reading this one, there were a few things that bothered me, which are Jacobs fast 180 and the misunderstanding at the end.

This is personal though…misunderstandings and miscommunication…

 ~Synopsis~

 How far would you go for the one you love? How much of yourself would you sacrifice?

Trapped on a decaying Earth and cut off from the rest of the Universe, humans are no longer allowed to leave their planet. Break this one law and you die: a penalty enforced by flyers, aliens who look like angels of long-lost religions. Michael, the flyers’ leader, is the Punisher who carries out every public execution.

Adam, a young human with near-perfect memory, is committed to rebuilding Earth and a true believer in the flyers’ dominion. While Adam’s support for flyers isn’t a secret, his deep love for Michael is. Not even Michael knows, for his kind never take human lovers, and to Adam, they are too far above him to reach.

In his broken and unwelcoming world, Adam’s love can only lead to pain, loss, and disaster. Yet there is no force in the huge expanse of stars and galaxies that can stop Adam from following Michael to the end of existence. Not even Adam’s own beliefs.

~Excerpt~

“Fucking bastard! Forcing you to repeat their alien laws after having killed your father in front of your mother and his entire family. He has no respect for our pain.” It wasn’t a new litany, but today of all days it grated me more than it usually did.

“Uncle, why should Michael care when my father clearly didn’t? If he loved us, if he was worried about what his death would do to Mother, he would have stopped when she asked him.”

My uncle’s eyes darkened, his face twisting in an ugly snarl. “Ungrateful bastard! Your father must be ashamed of you. He did everything for you!”

“For me?” I couldn’t stifle the cold laughter so I let it bathe me. “If he wanted to do something for me, he should have worked harder to put food on the table and clothes on my back. Mend the land and get the crops to thrive. How would flying elsewhere help me?”

The strike came out of nowhere. My uncle was fast for an old man. The sharp pain spread through my now burning cheek as I struggled to push up from where I’d fallen. Before I could, my uncle was all over me, pushing, hitting, and yelling in my face. “Ungrateful little prick! You should have been stillborn. A shame to your father and our family name, you are!”

“Let the boy go,” Michael said in a steady voice. The sound of it made me feel safe, sending tingles of happiness through my reeling mind. The pain of the hits subsided and I knew no more of it will come. At least not today.

“This is not your business, damned beast. You cannot interfere,” my uncle said, releasing me enough to twist his upper body and glare at Michael.

“I am not required to interfere, true. I choose to,” the flyer said, tilting his head and smiling coldly at my uncle. “Do you wish to find out who of us prevails if you challenge me, mortal?”
