Love Ahead: Expect Delays

Besides, he has something to prove. He wants Zach to know it's more than just Zach's deliciously wicked body he adores. And if it ta...more
A fun and hellish road-trip with mishaps and chaos along the way testing Austin's patience who isn't exactly thrilled with the Geo Spectrum he is forced to travel in. I thought it was a great adventure and the perfect opportunity for Zach to face up to his fears and work on resolving some of his insecurities about Austin. Austin does finally get it, he needs to keep his temper in check, its one of the major sticking points for Zach who isn't willing to take that final step and move in w...more

First and foremost we have the wonderful romance between Zach and Austin. My heart belonged to Austin I must admit. Although there is a wonderfully emotional scene near the end from Zach that had me tearing up but in a good way lol.
There is a touch of suspense that again adds to the story without taking it over. In my opinion its handled perfectly, being both detailed enough without dragging things out.
I do have a comment for Zachs mum t...more
Their road trip together makes for a fine holiday adventure--as long as you can forgive them for poor choices along the way. (Austin, you're a mechanic. Check out that...more

This story packed a lot in for such a relatively short novella, and wins points for being a road trip in a granny car with crocheted seat covers! Austin and Zach were both interesting individuals with great chemistry and there was enough conflict and excitement in the plot to keep me turning the pages quickly. This was my first read of Astrid Amara's work, but I'll definitely read more from her in the future. Recommended to anyone who enjoys sweet and sexy contemporary m/m romances.
This story is such a great pick-me-up and just a really cute holiday romance. It made me chuckle and put a nice big smile on my face. Ther...more
Third book by this writer and a recurrent thing that I can now affirm it's that she ask you to forget everything about human logic, realism, credulity and instinct before reading these books. The personages are forced in the direction the writer wanted them to go, not where there are supposed to go...
Not for me.
Some parts of this book felt a little over the top. So many things happen to the guys during their trip. It starts with little things and then snowballs into bigger things.
What I really...more
Murphy's law applies to this trip, everything that can go wrong does! But along the way they find that sometimes
being polar opposites is exactly the right thing to be.
Fun, sweet story!
Told from Zach's and Austion's pov by turn, to better glimpse of both thoughts and reservations of each other despite of how they fe...more
