This is an amazing book, a wonderful start to the Black Point series, and an emotional roller coaster of the highest degree that still manages to be very entertaining due to a great sense of humor. Even though I originally read it when it first came out, being able to read it again now that it's been rereleased was a total treat. Matt and Thomas are an amazing couple, and I had forgotten most of the turmoil they go through in this first volume of the series. The question whom we really love, the ...more

I quite liked this story. The MCs were likable and the secondary characters were nicely written, if a little dramatic and OTT. (Fucking in the back of a moving Jeep with the top down and your brother driving?)

I loved the premise of this although I would have really liked to see more of Matt's confusion over why he was so attracted and connected to this woman he'd never met as well as more fallout when the MCs finally meet. I was left feeling a little 'meh' over the fact Matt pretty much managed

My review is posted on Wild on Books: http://www.wildonbooks.com/reviews/20...

Matt, an up and coming writer of male/male romance, is thrilled when his favorite author, Rose Carter, takes note of his work. The two begin communicating online and soon Matt finds himself falling for his intriguing idol. Problem is, Matt’s gay and Rose is most definitely a woman. Or so he thinks…

Forbidden by his publisher to reveal his true identity, Thomas, alias Rose Carter, finds himself increasingly frustrated w

After reading the Blood Eclipse series, this book was surprisingly sweet and romantic. Thomas is an author that writes under the pen name, Rose, based on his publisher's belief that Rose's audience won't be able to accept a male romance writer. Online, he meets another author, Matt, who is out and proud and has published two successful romance books of his own. As Thomas and Matt become friends online, and their friendship blossoms into mutual attraction, Matt is confused by his feelings for the ...more

There are 6 books in this series currently. I think the story is kind of choppy in the first 2 books - the timeline seems off and rushed at parts but, the story line is very entertaining and overall I think they are worth reading. The characters are fun and the sex is hot. Just when I think there is too much sex, the author mixes it up and keeps it very entertaining. The stories in each book vary and kept me amused.

I recommend this series and enjoy it more and more as the books develop; however,

I thoroughly enjoyed this book and could see it as a Doris Day Movie with Sandra the publisher played by Doris and Rose/Thomas played by Rock Hudson. There is so much comedic writing that I found myself laughing out loud quite a few times. AJ has a wonderful and easy style which is a pleasure to read. My only criticism would be that the chiropractor did not get his just deserts as it appears that he was riding Rose's coattails and Thomas did not appear to be able to "kick him into touch". Maybe ...more

The premise for this first book in the Black Point series drew me in but ultimately didn't quite measure up to my expectations. I liked the protags well enough but never formed any real connection to them. I also didn't like the side story of the brother and his marital problems and found their scene in the car as they drove down a busy street in Hawaii totally over the top. Despite that I did for the most part enjoy the story and will be reading the other four books at some point.

I have had Black Point in my To Read file for at least two years, so I am now kicking myself for not having read it sooner. It was very enjoyable despite some clunky dialogue and I look forward to reading books 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 in the series sooner rather than later.

PS For those who know about the unpleasantness surrounding the first author's gender, the situation in Black Point with Rose/Thomas seemed like a cry for help and was oddly poignant.

I think I'm heading out to buy all the rest of this series and looking covetously at the co-authors backlists.

I love the concept of two authors meeting on line, and felt that Matt handled the "surprise" of Rose's identity very well. I like that the whole relationship wasn't settled at the end of the book, because that wouldn't have been very realistic. I am highly recommending this to everyone!

Dear authors - because I've noticed that in other books too - please make sure that character names are consistent and don't switch from Cole to Cody and back. Same gors for making sure that you use the name of the right character, otherwise it makes for a confusing read. And keep an eye on your own timelines, please.

Interesting premise, started nice but the end felt rushed.

Great premise, but the execution is lacking oomph. So much more could be done with this idea, and I was disappointed that the authors chose to gloss over what I consider to be many of the more fascinating aspects.

Liked the premise, but not the execution. The dialog was just plain silly. And a scene with cheating involved is resolved in about 10 pages. R U kidding me?

Decent start, awful end. Guy was way too accepting of the lie and the last 20 pages were pretty much pointless and mundane conversation.

It wasn't bad but lacked the emotional punch I was expecting. D J Manly's done better but I'm not familiar with Lewelleyn.

A.J. Llewellyn lives in California, but dreams of living in Hawaii. Frequent trips to all the islands, bags of Kona coffee in the fridge and a healthy collection of Hawaiian records keep this writer refueled.

A.J’s passion for the islands led to writing a play about the last ruling monarch of Hawaii, Queen Lili’uokalani as well as a non-erotic novel about the overthrow of her kingdom written in dia
