Pleasantly surprised a great follow up to aThaw in Winter! I still love these guys so much and I am very happy we got a bit more of their dreamy romance its a worthy sequel that resolves a big issue that was left hanging in the previous book Joe to the rescue!

It's a sweet story, but I was a bit reluctant to read it because of the title.
Unfortunately I was right, it is a major pet peeve of mine to call and keep calling your PARTNER a brat!
I find it condescending and rude and just unacceptable.
I might have been ok with it once, but it just got to be too much for me, and I don't think Mark was a brat or behaved like one, Joe was just a dominating and overbearing , so it might have felt like that to him.
I gave it 3 *, because that's what it would have g

This short story continues six months after Mark and Joe's start of relationship (book Thaw in Winter). Joe has a surprise for his lover -- and what a wonderful surprise it is. I like the scene where Mark finally takes Joe to his office and how Joe handles the problem with that d*ck nemesis of Mark.
I'm so happy that we got a follow up for these two guys, but it makes me want to read more about them.

Sequel of Thaw in Winter, it follows Mark and Joe's relationship after their return from the mountain cottage of Mark.

Mark is slowly coming out with all his friend and also with his family. Unfortunately Mark's parents seems to not accept their son: not cause he is gay, but as a son point. They are aloof and cold and Mark resents a lot this situation. And also it causes him to be a bit restrained in express his feelings to whom he loves.

But Joe has a surprise and also a proposition: he has an em

Cute follow up to Thaw in Winter! I enjoyed seeing Mark come into his own. Letting the world see who you are instead of who they think you are isn't always easy and it did my heart good to read a story where love and acceptance are the outcomes of showing the world your true shelf! And, can I just say... Mark's parents are idiots! Unfortunately, there are many parents out there who should have just passed over the possibility of having children... I will never understand how someone can have a c ...more

Mark was a prat rather than a brat. Despite the fact that he patently needed a spanking, this novel failed to deliver anything but petulance & pouting. This was an okay read but I think there is much better out there. I won't bother reading this one again.

I did bother ... wish I hadn't ... it spoils the glow left by book 1 IMO.

I nice quick read about two people wanting to move in together. The romantic gesture turned sour after a bit of rough housing brought about some minor tantrums from one of the main characters, hence the title.

Not much conflict here bet enough romance to satisfy my craving for some man love.

Having been an avid reader of romance for years, and being possessed of an overactive imagination, I decided to try my hand at writing. I discovered that, like reading, writing romance has become addictive. Whether writing paranormal, contemporary or science fiction about werewolves, otherworldly creatures or the average Joe, I found the perfect creative outlet.

I enjoy life in a turn-of-the-centur
