A Matter of Time, Vol. 1 (A Matter of Time #1-2)
Jory Keyes leads a normal life as an architect's assistant until he is witness to a brutal murder. Though initially saved by police Detective Sam Kage, Jory refuses protective custody-he has a life he loves that he won't give up no matter who is after him. But Jory's life is in real jeopardy, especially after he agrees to testify about what he...more
Jory: Mathias Lauridsen (The only guy pretty enough to make a straight man gay....)
Sam: This gorgeous unknown man...
Chris Hemsworth (Blonde,brown hair, check. Slate blue eyes, check. 6"3 inches, close enough...and hot,hot hot!!!)
Dane: Hugh Jackman (Hansome, debonair and damn sexy in a tux!).
Dane's expression when Jory does something stupid....
1. Jory is unbelievably nice and patient. I don't know of anyone in this world that is as patient as him. I don't think it's possible.
2. Sam Kage is a complete jackass but I can't stop myself from liking him no matter how many times I wanted to go through my Kindle and beat his ass.
3. Nick the Doctor. What the hell man? Stage Five Clinger.
4. Dylan reminds me of my best friend.
5. Dane. He's so screwed up but I love him A LOT. I'm going to say more than Sam even.
One of the things that I adore about this book is the relationship between Jory and Dane. That concept of found family is so fascinating to read and their scenes together just work so well.
I really enjoy reading about Jory's adventures here. Sliding through the sea of men that surround him until he runs into the immoveable Sam Kage. These two men just work together so well there's a tremendous frustration when their relationship runs into the rocks. Tremendous fru...more
If you thought the same....good luck to ya!!!
Jon, James, Rick, Mich, Evan, Michael, Mary, Jill, Sue, Alexander, Cleopatra, Madona, Cher and so on and on and on....one name after another...seriously Jory knew almost every person on this planet (well ok that is not...more
Gosh Really...Even After That!
This is now one of my favorites, most adored series and I love, love, love Jory and even Sam, together their chemistry is fun, delightful and sizzling, and gosh I can't wait for more....BUT..AGAIN I SAY....WTF...CLIFFHANGING, so not fair...and that's the only reason this book is 4 stars and not 5~.
I Have Lost My Mind, Cuz, I Still Love This Book!
This is in 1st person POV, I thought I hated 1st person POV...I am really a picky rea...more
This was one of the most irritating and annoying books I've read in a long time and it's mainly because of the MC, Jory. The story is told from the first person narrative, by Jory. Jory is the most perfect person to walk the face of the Earth. At least this is what EVERYONE thinks, apparently except for me. Colleagues, friends, ex/new lovers, anyone who's fortunate to lay their eyes on the halo of light that surrounds him, loves h...more
Jory is one of those cocky, mouthy, quick-tempered types that get on my last nerve in real...more
As an example----Jory KNOWS peo...more
This is a lovely story that delves into the mind of a young gay man at the age of twenty-two. After witnessing an awful crime, Jory is in danger and must use all his smarts and skills to survive.
Jory Keyes is a force of nature and people are drawn to him. He will blow into your life, exceed your expectations and leave you wanting more in the wake of his destruction. He's a gorgeous man who is comfortable with who he is. His mother aba...more
Here is my reasoning:
While I enjoyed the themes of different kinds of love, there was no development of these concepts. So much could have been done to really explore brotherly love. Dane seemed so willing to give it, but it was never explained why. Jory on the other hand was all too wi...more
Jory is one of Mary's most memorable creations--flighty, brilliant, self-indulgent at the same time he'd do anything for a friend, Jory is complex, irritating, and wonderful. Sam starts out the series as a complete bastard--but he's also tormented and pretty in love with Jory so we can forgive hi...more
Right from the get go I knew this was going to be good! Even though the beginning is a little mismatched to the rest of the book it served its purpose, to drag you into the story so deep that you couldn't even think of giving up before the last sentence. Well done. The character of Jory (love that name btw) is introd...more
As I got to the end of this book I was not sure how I really felt. I enjoyed the writing and most of the flow of the story. Jory was a wonderful character to read, but after 2 books of everyone falling at his feet,...ummm? I understand he's a great guy but it just seemed a little excessive sometimes. SAM... I don't know how I feel. He's is perfect, when he is perfect. When he's not he's an a$$. He accuses Jory of running away, but would you stay when someone basically says,(view spoiler...more
Jory is perfect - lovely to look at, perfect clothes, perfect relationship with his boss and a great friend to all. He comes through the most difficult times almost with ease but I suppose that some people can be like this.
Jory was witness to a murder and Sam, the police officer who is smitten with him wants to...more
I really liked this book a lot. It held my attention and flowed really well, making it an easy read. Jory, the protag, is very funny and I liked him within the first few sentences. There are times early on when he comes off a bit arrogant (e.g. being rude to past lovers) but he changes and grows up a lot in this story, and I love that. Character growth is so important to me for a good book. Sam is also very likable, with his extreme, all or nothing passionate personality. I loved Dane,...more
When I finally decided that I would give them a try. . . we'll, I'll be the first to say that I'm kicking myself and wishing I had done it a long time ago. I'm in love with both of the main characters and wish I were a part of their ever-expanding world. I will certai...more
Definitely one of those books that could have been stellar had it been properly edited and refined. The dialogues were stinted for the most part, and the main protagonist - Jory - was a bit over the top for me. In many ways, he read as someone who's too good to be real/true, and he was the perfect character, yet irreconcilably stupid.
I have issues with the author's style - too much dragging in random characters that go nowhere just to show how amazing Jory was... After the 3rd t...more
ok- Well both Sam and Jory are pains but I did like Jory a lot better than I liked Sam, I didn't have a problem that a lot of other readers seemed to have with the back and forth, I think if they were real people it would have been a lot worse. To discover that want a man and you're not a teen or a young 20's either but a man who knew he w...more
if you imagine jory as kelllan, its much more enjoyable. lol.
if you liked this one, or want something a bit more....um...cohesive and well, explicit, the you must read;
both those series are really compelling.
jory had adhd, and were in his head, thus the scattered thoughts. it gets better as the story progresses.
adding to the confusion,the . names are exactly the same...more
1. Too many coincidences meetings between Jory and Sam. Jory went to the club he met Sam, Jory went to other club he met Sam, Jory went somewhere he met Sam. coincident. Because how could Sam know where Jory was, they did not communicate and definitely Sam didn't planted a bug on Jory.
2. Jory is too.... perfect. Everyone said how beautiful he is,...more
My dentist is going to be a RICH man! This book is so sugary that I have a mouth full of cavities.
Jory is perfect.
Sam is perfect.
Dane is perfect.
Everyone is so freaking perfect.
But here’s where my weakness comes in: I love any freaking book with a closeted cop and his more-than-likeable love interest.
EVERYONE loves Jory…so why should I be any different?
Yes, this book is too sweet.
Yes, this book is unbelievable.
Yes, everyone in this book is gorgeous and charming and attractive and sexy.
This book was very strange for me to read.I so wanted to love it but all I could muster is that I more than liked it but didn't quite REALLY like it hence the 3.5 stars.
There was a lot good about the book especially at the beginning.The first book was great loved the characters,even though there were a lot of names to sort through that didn't have any significant reason to be in the book except to give Jory's playmates names.The suspense/thriller part of the story was good and had me wa...more

This book is a romance, a bit of a drama, a bit of a thriller, with a dash of crime mystery tossed in. If you don't get too preci...more
The relationship between Dane and Jory it's s really heartwarming one and their dialogues were just the funniest thing to read without lacking a wide variety of other emotions (love, anger, exasperation, friendship and so much more).
Sam though can only be described as someone you hate to love and love to hate. Still you can't fault him much (only about 90%) when he comes to the realization of his orientation in the age of 35. The poor man has a lot to...more
