My rating:

Alden is the last of the three partners in his charitable investment company to still be single. His two friends have already found boys to fulfill their Daddy desires.

However, it's obvious to everyone that Gannon has a thing for Nolan, except for Nolan himself.

Review - Waiting for Ru by Barbara Elsborg

My rating:

Kindly note: If you haven't read some of the earlier books of this series, this review contains spoilers about some of the events in them. Ruari – “Ru” – is still adjusting to his new reality. Kidnapped by his aunt and uncle when he was eight years old, he was told his parents and brother were dead, and kept in isolation so he couldn't find out differently. In the second book of this series, Long Way Back, Ru found out that his family wasn't dead, and that his brother had been imprisoned for Ru's murder.

Review - Reinventing Cato by Barbara Elsborg

My rating:

After a few disastrous relationships, Cato decides to avoid romantic entanglements, never spending more than a night with people he meets in bars, often not even knowing their name. But as midnight approaches on New Years Eve at a party he'd rather not be at, Cato resolves to become a better person, to “reinvent” himself. Vigge is not quite out at work, where he's a police detective. He doesn't trust easily and has some rather heavy baggage from his childhood.

Review - Pieces of Us by N.R. Walker

My rating:

Kindly note: This book starts directly after the ending of the second, and picks up with the same characters right where they left off. If you haven't read the first two installments of this series, be prepared for spoilers. Justin continues to recover from the horrific traffic accident that left him with a traumatic brain injury as well as a broken arm and leg. There are good days, when more of Justin's personality emerges from the mist surrounding his cognitive capabilities, but there are also bad days, when the stress of an unwelcome visitor sends him back into an unresponsive fog.

Review - Pretty Boy by K.M. Neuhold

My rating:

Sterling was born with a large port wine stain covering nearly half his face. That alone made it difficult growing up in a small Texas town, where he's the easy target for every bully around. It doesn't help that his father abandoned their family before he was born and his mother is an alcoholic. Sterling gets by tending bar in the only bar in town, which is where he meets Barret.
