The first half of this book was really interesting, but I began to get a bit worried when nothing had happened between the two men and it was getting over 50%. And annoyingly, the blurb gives away the entire book - a bit more of mystery around Ben and Ashleigh's eventual divorce would've been great. Instead, I spent ages waiting for this to happen and suddenly, like a light switch, Ben realises that he could be gay. With absolutely no hints or anything, he decides he's been in denial. I ...more

A guy who just suddenly decides he may be, kinda sorta, is

It would have been nice to give the reader a small hint because all we're subjected to throughout the entire book is how absolutely certain Ben is that he isn't gay because he's never been attracted to men.

See, the thing with "in denial" closet cases in literature; you're supposed to let the reader in on the possibility of there being something there. Instead, it's Ben being all, "Well, I really like Tobias as a friend, but

More like 2.5. The idea was good - execution not so good. Due to it being a series, you are left wondering what happens next if you are so inclined to continue reading the series, however, I'm not inclined!

This barely made it to two stars. First of all, did anyone proofread this thing before it was published? There are so many errors throughout, but especially in the first couple of chapters. In the first chapter alone morning and evening, am and pm are mixed up repeatedly.
I had a hard time getting into this story. I’m not a big fan of GFY anyway since it is so hard to make it believable and this one was no different. There really weren’t any characters that I found very likeable. Tobias came

It's one of those story I could have like, but didn't.
It needed to be fleshed out a bit more. I know that it's the first part of a trilogy, but it could have gone deeper on a few things. Like Ben's relationship with his wife, it seemed a bit rushed for my taste. I did like the characters, that was were there was enough depth for me. On the fence about reading the other two.

2.5 stars. The blurb on the book is somewhat false, because the 2 MCs know each other before the attack, and the attack doesn't happen until more than halfway through the book.

I actually found the story a little irritating: Tobais (don't call him Toby) kept saying over and over what a terrible person he was and Ben was like a floor mat, letting his *itchy wife walk all over him. I didn't really develop any kind of feelings for the MCs, so when they did finally get together (very quickly, too,

I have to wring Chad's neck. This could have been such a cool story and it started so well. How could you???

You have a boss here who is gay, who has some issues and a bit of commitment phobia, a long term gay friend (with benefits) who pines for him and a gay employee who would love to get into his pants. And then you have the new guy. Straight, married, temporary employee and committed to his work. He catches the boss' eye but because of all the reasons I mentioned before it can never be, or

Discovering who you are is never easy or painless. What makes the process more tolerable, is having someone with you that understands what you are going through. Lane gives us two flawed human beings, with thoughts, feelings just like everyone else.

This is a modern romance with old fashioned values that everyone can enjoy. Place is in the city, so many people can visualize without Lane having to bog us down with lengthy descriptions or boring landscapes. We see city and outlaying areas, urban

This was a sweet easy read about a lonely lawyer and a miserably married temp who find love despite the fact one is married and straight and the other is single and gay.

My biggest problem with this story was the ease with which Ben accepted and overcame years of conditioning, to discover he was gay. One minute he's married to Ashleigh, the next minute she's divorcing him and he's in love with his boss, the sexy, successful lawyer Tobias. It all read to easily for me and there was so much
I thought this book would be more intense then it was, but I should have realized it couldn't get that deep with so little pages.

It was an okay story, actually I'm kind of glad I got it for free... would have been a little peeved if I had paid for it.

There really wasn't any intense building up to the relationship... Tobias and Ben kind of just feel into each other which was kind of lame, since Ben was heterosexual married man. I just thought there should have been a little more to them getting

I was pretty disappointed with this book. The plot was fine but the author seemed unable to connect the dots believably. There wasn't enough development of the characters- the narrative didn't match up with the characters actions. There were quite a few technical errors as well: timeline not matching up, keys stolen but no problem getting in an upscale (presumably locked) house, people meeting but then are strangers later on. I've never read a story where life changing events are so easily ...more

I liked the characters and story line. The ending felt a little rushed but as the next two books are out I'm ok with it. I really liked Ben. He's doing his best while everything is falling apart. He just keeps trying. I loved his optimism that he and his wife would get through their rough patch. When, even that, fell apart there was still hope for his life to get better. Tobias on the other hand is so jaded by his life that almost nothing has meaning. Then in a moment Ben's light infects Tobias ...more

It's OK to be gay, but....

Sometimes authors make it seem like it is a brief transition from straight to gay or bisexual, but the most important challenge is the mental and spiritual demands that are often skipped over or ignored. This author did a good job of trying to include many of the issues that prey on all the relationships and all relatives, friends, and associates. It is worth the time to read and enjoy, even if not gay.

I want more...

I really want this romance between Tobias and Ben to continue. I hope the next book in this series revolves around them. There is so much more to be explored in their relationship. What they feel for each other is so new to both of them that the door is left wide open to be a continuous story line in the sequel. I really enjoyed both characters and the characters around them.

Another short one. Seems to be my thing these days. Still, it was a cute story. Given the title, we have an idea of what to expect. Though short, I do have some clear emotions about this story. First, I hate Ashleigh. I knew I would from the first scene she's in. Next, I like Ben. Tobias would take some extensive growing on me to get used to. Again, I rather wish it was longer, but I'm not dissatisfied. At least Ben finds some happiness in the end, which he was obviously missing with ashleigh

While I liked this book it still felt like something was missing. Both men seem very attractive but there is the feeling that something in there past has made them the way they are. While Mr Lane gives us some details I don't feel it was enough to figure out the guys and they way they feel. Some parts seemed to have been rushed. I may have to read the next to see if it answers any of my unaswered questions.

3,5 stars.

Chad Lane is autobuy for me, because the books are entertaining and rather light without being sugary. I felt that in Finding Him the author delivered a story that's better written and had more depth than the previous works. It's nice to witness an author grow and I'm really looking forward to the rest of the series.

This story was great. The awakening of a younger man after, a devastating break up with his wife, he's so unsure of his own sexuality. Love the intensity of the feelings of these two men. Enjoy a longer story, not just sex.
