I was looking forward to this one because Evan and Georgie...and I've really liked Georgie so far and wanted to see him get a bit of happy and he with just one more book to go I'm thinking this one may end up being my favorite one in the series...but I'll know for sure in a few hours when I'm doine listening to book #10. Either way this will either be my favorite story of the series or a close second.

2.5 stars

A nice enough story about two people who've been looking for a permanent relationship. A few bumps in their way made the story more interesting than usual, but the complete lack of background about the MCs (when it's hinted that their past is filled with ghosts) didn't make for a deeply emotional story. Pity, because the writing was good.
The friends marathon continues and ... well no one has been hurt in the process but I'm fairly certain the stories won't linger in my mind either. Still I've been entertained by the audios.

Here we have the Evan, the good Samaritan from Finally Found, and Georgie who has been a fairly regular presence since Just Stay, Bk.4. He works at Paddles, the arcade/male-brothel, and is the proverbial hooker with a heart of gold. He also has the requisite dream of something more, in this case bein

This is a really sweet story of two young men who have given up on love, and yet each kindles a tiny spark of hope that they might find someone who loves them unconditionally and with whom they can find a happily ever after.

Evan, a long distance truck driver, has never recovered from breaking up with his boyfriend Nick two years ago and has managed to live pretty much as a recluse since t

I am a huge fan of Aria Grace. I like her writing style and have read and enjoyed many of her books. For some reason, I missed this one and i found out why: "rent boy" as a MC. I tend to steer clear of the "rent boy genre but this is Aria Grace; so I carried on. I loved it. I met Georgie from another book and I fell in love with him all over again. I thought YEA a happy ending for him. Georgie is

I want to start by saying I came in with high expectation for an enjoyable read with Characters that captured my interest. what I got was a read that was good but not enjoyable. character that like the story seemed to be too formula based for my loving.

Once again Aria has graced us with a winner!

I loved finally getting to see sweet Georgie find his own HEA. Only complaint is that I would have liked more time with them. But then I am greedy like that.

I really enjoyed this book! I love Georgie - he is a hoot! I was totally anxious to read this book when I read the summary and just 1 previous review. I didn't want to stop reading but life made me, darn it!

I have not read any of the previous books in this series but as the summary mentions, you really don't have to, although I wish I had simply because THIS book was so great.

Looking for Home, book nine in the More Than Friends series by Aria Grace. This is the ninth book in a fantastic series! It’s true you don’t have to read these in order. They don’t have cliffhangers! I hate those! But I think you miss a lot of the experience if you don’t read them in order. This series has fantastic characters that you learn about through out the series.

"Looking for Home" is easily my favorite audio book in the More Than Friends series. Georgie is such a sweet person who deserves to "be a keeper" that it's impossible not to root hard for his HEA with Evan, an ordinary and nice guy who treats Georgie right. Credit to their mutual friend Trey for talking sense into both of them early on - to truck driver Evan about keeping an open mind, and to fashion designer/male escort Georgie about opening h

I have been waiting for Georgie to find true love but he needed to understand he was worthy of love before it could happen. Being a prostitute for so long had left Goergie thinking everyone was only with him for a quick hookup and that he was unworthy of a real relationship. That is until he meets Evan. Right away the sparks fly but it is not until Georgie hits rock bottom do they get their HEA. This book was so worth the wait and I loved that Aria Grace included more of past characters storylin ...more

Is wracked with tormented twists and turns. It saddens me to think that others actually suffer in these ways, but it makes me happy to know that others can help them if they will let them.

I received this story for an honest review from Goodreads MM group, Don't Buy My Love program.

I finished this in one day, but waited a couple of days to let it all settle before writing this review(I often do that.) It may contain some spoilers(but not really).

I only read the first book in this series, but it's true, you don't need to read them in order. It's obvious who the previous couples are (from the previous books). Evan and Georgie actually have mutual friends but don't meet each oth

This story is sweet and light, and as previously said by many, can be read as a stand-alone story. It's set in Portland Oregon, but the physical setting is practically invisible. The two main characters are each lonely men; Evan does mid-distance truck driving for a living, which takes him out of town three days a week and Georgie does as a high-end, expensive sex work out of a company called Paddles.

Obviously I'm a glutton for punishment. After loving Ms. Grace's original three stories in this series (and her first few published works), I keep subjecting myself to these so-so follow-ups. Each time, I hope to be as impressed as I was with her earlier tales, instead I'm left feeling let down.

Georgie was so much fun and incredibly lively in other books. He was sassy, and I adored his chara

This is book 9 in a series but can be read as a standalone. However, there is a lot of name dropping from previous books, so the beginning especially can be overwhelming. Once past the first few chapters, though, it really becomes the story of Evan and Georgie.

Georgie is a rent boy who is interested in fashion. His dream is to go into fashion and to live with his love Theo, who is in a loveless marriage with a woman.

This was a story about Evan and Georgie. They meet on New Years Eve and seemed to have that instant love.
As far as the characters, Evan the hot truck driver I really liked. He was looking for a relationship and was lonely. Seemed to be a great honest guy. Georgie was a prostitute that wanted the same thing, a relationship. Did I think they were a good pair, not really. They seemed so different it wasn't working for me.

3.5 stars, rounded to 4 because I liked Evan so much

Looking for Home by Aria Grace is the 9th entry in the series by the author. Although characters carry over from prior stories, the book is a standalone and it’s not necessary to read the previous books. That being said it did take me a bit to get into the story because I didn’t have the back stories of some of the secondary characters featured.

This story was somewhat patched together for me. I really liked Evan’s character. I felt he was very real and honest. Then you have Georgie, who is a prostitute working his way to saving up enough in order to develop his own clothing line.

This is a nice easy afternoon read. The two MC's are Georgie, a high priced escort looking to break into the fashion industry, and Evan, a long distance trucker. Both men are looking for "the one". After a disappointment with one of his clients, Georgie is dragged to a party by his friends, there he meets Evan, whose friends also dragged him.

I've been rooting for Georgie to find his person for what felt like forever. He's been one of my favorite characters from Paddles, always so happy and full of life. Unfortunately behind the smiles, there is a sadness that all too often isn't seen. We met Evan briefly in a previous book, but he touches something and stuck with me. Maybe it was just the way he cares & nurtures without judging.

The chemistry between Georgie & Evan is off the charts. They are drawn to each other, feeling more than j
