Ok, the story and the characters in this one worked for me, but the way the story was told did NOT.

This is one of those books that flip flop between the past and the present, which made it difficult for me to be really drawn into either time, it ruined the momentum of the story for me. I found myself skimming the past stuff, even though that's where most of the best sex was, just to get back to the present, which, to me, was the meat of the story. I think this book would have worked much better

Would have enjoyed this more if the author had cut back ruthlessly on the endless sex scenes that added nothing except...well, sex, to the book and focused more on the story. Just when I'd just begin to be getting into the actual plot, the relationship, the characters, the flow would be interrupted by yet another multi-multi-multi page overwritten, overlong, florid sex scene whose excruciating endless details added pretty much nothing to my understanding of the characters or their relationship o ...more

Devlin Morgan and Gradyn Connell have one thing on their minds when they meet in a bar one Friday night in San Francisco. One good, hard fuck.

After the hell he’s been through, Gradyn knows the young man sitting at the end of the bar--with his sweet nervousness and beautiful face--is just what he needs. And Gradyn has absolutely no problem getting up to say hello.

Devlin knows inviting muscle-bound, tattooed Gradyn to his motel room is the riskiest thing he’s ever done, but there’

I REALLY liked this story - the plot, the mystery, the characters, the emotions, the sex...

It is the story of two men who meet and share one passionate weekend together which turns into six months of exchanging emails before the contact between them ends abruptly. Five years later they meet again to find each man has not forgotten the other.

I loved that the short time that Devlin and Garrick spent together made such an impact. I loved the emotional connection between them. I loved that they had

I loved this story. It was mysterious and filled with tension, the characters and their backgrounds fascinated me and, not to forget, the sex scenes were really hot.

The format of the story and how it was told was also interesting: the memories of Devlin's and Garrick's first meeting five years prior to the story start was given from both characters' viewpoints and spread throughout the first two thirds of the book. Rather than annoy me (like flashbacks usually do), these were spaced very cleverl

3.5 stars.


I really this book. It had some plot and mystery, it was emotional, and it was just a lovely read about a love story between two males. I loved that both men had a dominant streak. They definitely both owned each other. But they also showed their vulnerable side which I loved them about both of them.

When I first started reading this, I didn't know how the author was going to explain the transformation of Garrick or Gradyn after so many years and while one of my guesses did turn out to

What was it about this book that made me so in love with it? Hmmm, let's see.

Perhaps it was the wonderful characters, and not just the MC's. I liked the secondary characters in this book too (I hope Grace gets a book, I hope Wyn gets a book)
.
Perhaps it was the raw erotic writing, struth, the sex was creative and plentiful, but never too much for me at any stage. Devlin earns the prize for most wildly enthusiastic sex partner in any book. His first actual penetrative sex with Garrick (aka Grady

I absolutely loved this book. It was even better than the first one in this series. I really liked the way the author worked the history & memory scenes into the story without it seeming forced or out of place. The mystery in the story was great just enough to make me want to read more. The characters are great as well Devlin & Garrick were actually developed enough to feel like real people. This story made me kinda believe that love at first sight is really possible.. This was a love st ...more

I think it's probably time to say I guess I am not really a Cameron Dane fan.

Everything I read is just...I don't know the word I am looking for. I mean, it's okay, but I want more. But LESS SEX! The stuff is so sex filled that I tend to skip over the scenes and then I am missing so much of the book because of it.

I did, however, like this one more than the first book. The flashbacks were a bit much for me, I mean, it was 2 days! I don't need a blow by blow (literally) for every second of that t

Devlin spent a lot of money on a weekend trip to San Francisco just so that he could find a random guy at a bar to lose his virginity to. Just as he's come to the conclusion that he's got nothing to prove and that he can use his trip to the city for something better he meets the stunning stranger Gradyn. With a wicked proposal Gradyn lures Devlin with him to his room and a weekend full of awesome sex! When they part ways Devlin is sad, but as he arrives home he finds an e-mail in his inbox.

DEVLIN AND GARRICK is one of those novels you easily lose yourself in to, not because of the suspense but because the chemistry between two people is just that good, it keeps you succumbed to the pages in order to find out how their happily ever after will come to be. When I read the blurb a few weeks back it was initially the mystery which intrigued the daylights out of me because, what had happened to Gradyn/Garrick between that weekend with Devlin and the present? You can imagine that upon th ...more

DEVLIN AND GARRICK is the second book in the Seeking Redemption series and I actually liked this book a bit more than the first, mainly because of the characters. I do like the direct approach in people and characters I meet in books I tend to hold to the same standard, so these very brash and sometimes intrusive people I met here worked for me .

Devlin is a small town gay guy, so he takes a trip to San Fran. There he meets the enigmatic, sexy, tattooed god that is Gradyn. They spend the weekend together, engaged in sexual acts across the board. Then they part ways. Five years later Devlin goes to the garage of his home town, only to find Gradyn there as a mechanic. Only, the guy's physically totally different. He's also got a new name, Garrick--and worst of all, he pretends he doesn't know Devlin at all!

This is only the start of the sto

Almost 5 stars.

I liked this book even better than the first book in the series. 5 years ago Devlin Morgan had the perfect weekend. As one of very few openly gay men in Redemption, Maine, Devlin treats himself to an expensive weekend vacation to San Francisco where he hopes to meet a man and have his first physical relationship.

At a bar in San Francisco, Devlin meets Gradyn Connell a large, beautiful, tattooed man. After a weekend of learning about each other in every way, they realize that one

First off, even though I liked the names of the MCs, I felt the author tried too much. As a matter of fact, she tried too much with the names of all her male characters in this series: Ethan; Aidan; Devlin; Garrick; Wyn.

Then again, the majority of the male characters in her other novels have pretty distinct names (Rhone, in Finding Home; Greyson and Sirus in Grey's Awakening; Logan in Breaking Logan's Laws; Canin in The Ultimate Kink; Rodrigo and Braden in Something New; Connor, Cain, Cade, Duke

The first book in the "Seeking Redemption" series was just spot-on/wonderful/emotional with a great plot, for me, but this one "Devlin & Garrick" did not melt me to the point I needed scraping off the floor. ...partly because, Devlin and Garrick did to much reminiscing of "that" 48 hr weekend which happened 5 yr ago. I would have preferred, these two focused more on the present moment and experienced less flashbacks which were a little confusing for me at times. I felt happy that Aidan and E ...more

I enjoyed this book, I loved how two people can instantly and believably fall in love. Devlin and Garrick fit, they are able to gauge the other and provide what was necessary.

Well worth reading.

Good m/m romance about Devlin, visiting San Francisco for a few days, who picks up a rough, tattooed guy for some quick fun that turns into a weekend in bed, followed by six months of emails and phone calls before the guy brutally dumps Devlin in email. Five years later, Devlin's still struggling to deal with that when he bumps into a mysteriously familiar (but tattoo-free) guy new in town...

I think I'm going 3 stars on this one...I really enjoyed the first one a lot more...I did like Devlin and Garrick but there were just some things about this one that rubbed me wrong or something. I liked the overall idea of finding each other again and working through the lies/misunderstandings, etc.
There were a few word fouls: mating (ugh!), prick...:(, beautiful...by the 6th time he'd said in 5 minutes I wanted to gag (maybe I'm not romantic?) and sometimes the dialogue didn't seem quite right

good book. nice romance between then two of them, you can really tell they truly love each other. some cute and funny moments, sex scenes a little corny. but a good easy read. i haven't read the first book in the series but it didn't prevent me from not knowing who the other characters were. now i need to read the first so the rest of the series will go in order. lol

This pushed all my hot buttons! The sex was extremely hot and quite frequent - big tick for me!! The love between these to guys was so sweet and I loved seeing Devlin not give up on Garrick. These two were truly made for each other. I love all of these Redemption boys. I can only hope there's more!

I had to have this book after reading the 1st in the redemption series.
I thought that the book was HOT!!!
The main characters showed emotion throughout the book for each other and also for the secondary characters. Alot of these were the same characters as in the 1st book.
The only problem that I had was with the amount of flashbacks we had to that one weekend 5 yrs previously. It must have taken up to about 75% into the book before we got a proper explanation of what had split them apart.
I enjoy

I was disapointed in this one. Aiden and Ethan was much better.

I cannot help but feel deeply disappointed!

The story was well written and very engaging. I enjoyed going through the motions as every new piece of information came in. This book had the potential to be heart shattering. It could have possibly brought any reader to their knees from the emotion alone.

A lot of reviews speak on how the sex was too much but thats where we really get a chance to emotional connect to Devlin and Garrick. That is the only time when their hearts were so raw that it could

I like sex in a book, especially when that sex is hot. I just don't like too much of it and that is what Devlin and Garrick had.

I don't know WHY I was expecting this to be similar to Aidan and Ethan which I absolutely love as one of my favs because I constantly go back to read parts of it.

The characters in this didn't fall flat per say, they just weren't written out right.

I didn't feel a connection to them because so much of past Devlin and Garrick was expressed instead of present Devlin and Gar

I presume you know what the book is about. I'm letting you know what I liked or disliked about it.

I liked the way this story was written; current day with two different insights into the same event. I liked how the amount of commonality between the first book and this one (2nd in the Redemption Series) without constant tie in's to the first story.

It pleases this reader to spend time reading new aspects to a favorite story rather than constantly being pulled back into a preceding book or an OLD
