Teen shelter volunteer Rich searches for love until Diego, from LVMPD Search and Rescue, finds him.

After declaring his love life officially dead, Rich wonders if maybe he should stick with his shifter book boyfriends instead. It’s not as if he has much free time to date anyway. Between working long hours at a coffee shop, guarding his sodas from his hygienically challenged

Morticia Knight books are my hot fudge sundae: sweet & delicious if consumed in moderation.

Searching for Shelter follows the same formula as the other books in the Sin City Uniforms series: one of the MCs wears a uniform (fireman, cop, hostage negotiator, search & rescue), while the other doesn't; Insta Love; plenty of XXX-rated steamy scenes; silly and contrived mystery/suspense plot; and a HEA.

In this story, Diego of the Los Angeles Search and Rescue has been wanting to ask out the
Well...this was a hot little number. I haven't read all the other books in this series, just the first one, so this can be read as a stand alone.

Diego works for LVMPD, Search & Rescue team. Rich works at a coffeeshop and volunteering at a LGBTQ center. Diego is a customer at the coffeeshop and asks Rich out. They go, they make out, have sex and fall in love.

This one was very high on the insta-love, they move in together really fast. There isn't a lot of character development or background
I was given a complimentary copy by the author in exchange for an honest review as part of the Male/Male Romance group's Don't Buy My Love event.

This book is actually quite a sweet romance between Rich and Diego as they fall madly in love with each other. Any 'danger' that might befall Rich is very lightly handled. It appeared more of a plot device to bring out Diego's protective instinct rather than an integral part of the story, the conclusion to the mystery was simply brushed over as Diego

Rich works at a coffee shop to make ends meat while at the same time he volunteers at a LGBTQ teen shelter and has the worse luck dating which he has just decided to give up and stick with his book boyfriends when Diego asks him out on a date.
Diego comes to the coffee shop when Rich is working in the mornings and is very attracted to him. He works in Search and Rescue. He finally asks Rich out... Lets just say it was on and cracking after that!

I loved these two men together! Diego is so caring
I received Searching for Shelter through the Don’t Buy My Love review program for an honest and unbiased opinion. Rich is twenty-six, works at a coffee shop and volunteers at an LGBTQ center. He’s lusting after one of the coffee shop regulars, a hot man named Diego. Diego is thirty-seven, rock climbs and is a search and rescuer. This story is told in third person through the eyes of both Rich and Diego.

2.5 Stars

The only reason this book is getting two stars is because of the sweetly dirty sex.

What wonderful boys you brought us with this, Morticia.
As always, I thoroughly enjoyed those guys's story :)

Rich is such a lovely, lovely boy. Barista. Running the programming at the Vegas LGBTQ teen shelter. Such a SWEETHEART ! I also loved our Search & Rescue "hero" Diego.

And obviously, together they were quite something.

I loved the touch of mystery / guy(s) trying to get Rich killed.
And the tastefully kinky bits, which are not page-fillers like I sometimes

A nice, overly sappy, hurt/comfort story.

Rich is 26, working at a coffee shop and volunteering at a LGBT shelter. He gets hit on by a lot of guys, but he doesn’t want to be just a piece of ass, he wants true love.

So when he gets askes out on a date by one of the regulars of the coffee shop, he says no at first. But when it’s clear that the guy, Diego, is really smitten with him and wants to treat him right, he says yes.

When the two meet again on career night at the shelter, the

I received a copy of this book via Goodreads' Don't Buy My Love program in exchange for my honest review. This is the 6th book in a series and can be fully enjoyed as a standalone.

Rich is a 26 y/o hard-working barista in a Vegas coffeeshop. He is also the morning manager there, and in his spare time he organizes LGBTQ-friendly programming in a homeless shelter. His whole life is work and shelter, but he longs for a steady relationship.

Diego is one of the regulars to frequent Rich's shop, and

I did like this book, but at the same time I am very conflicted. I enjoyed the lead up the the main characters dating, but once they started dating it got very insta-love which didn't work for me in this case. It was super sappy and first blush of love. But the build up was great, I like the asking out and the first date awkwardness, and the respect showed by Diego and Rich. Both characters are looking

Rich gets his story! YAY! I was so freaking excited when I heard it was Rich’s turn. And Diego? Oh freaking hell… WOW! He’s pretty freaking perfect… and what he is, what he does for Rich. It’s just gorgeous!
Like Morticia’s other books in this series it was exciting, suspenseful, thrilling, and wicked hot!
Rich is such a relatable character. No matter who you are you will find yourself nodding along with Rich’s thoughts and actions. He is a very genuine person and I really felt connected to him.
I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review as part of the MM Romance Group Don't Buy My Love program. I thank both for the opportunity to read and review. This is number 6 in the Sin City series. While there is mention of other guys in uniform from previous books, you can read this as a standalone.

Searching for Shelter follows along with the formula of the Sin City Uniforms series. The series revolves around uniformed men and their love interests and a murder or suspense plot. This book follows suit with Diego being in uniform with search and rescue and Rich being a civilian.

There is minimal character development here and we learn a little more about Rich than we do Diego. The focus here is on the men building a relationship. At the start, Diego is careful

This book was provided for free by the author in exchange for an honest review.

This is book 6 in the Sin City Uniforms series. It can be read as a standalone, but some people/couples referenced are from the first few books.

Rich is working a dead-end job at a coffee shop and living with the world's least hygienic roommates in order to make ends meet. He lives for the time he spends at a LGBTQ shelter as a volunteer and the time he can spend reading about hunky shifter boyfriends on his Kindle.

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Rich has pretty much given up on dating as he has never been able to actually have a relationship because all guys seem to want to throw him away after they get into bed. He has decided to put all of his focus into helping the youth shelter that he volunteers at. Diego has been watching Rich for months when he comes into the coffee shop that Rich works at and finally gets up the courage to ask him out. It takes a bit of convincing for Rich to

Rich works at a coffee shop and volunteers at the LGBT shelter. (This is book 6 in a series and though it’s a stand alone several other couples make a return in this book.) He sees Diego fairly often, but always assumed he was gay. He’s shocked when Diego asks him out, but psyched to go.

Diego and Rich have a fairly instant connection, they just click. Their chemistry is off the charts and everything goes their way. The only fly in the ointment is that ever since Rich saw a woman shoved out of a

**3.5 Stars

This was a sweet, easy read. I really liked Diego and Rich but as far as the story goes the basic premise isn't that different from the other stories in this series. If you're looking for a light read with a sweet romance I think this one fits the bill.

I really enjoyed reading this book, and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series. Seems like Sin City, has a lot of sinful love and happiness for a man in uniform.

Keywords: Disney like, Prince Charming, sappy, very effusive love, love on 2nd date.

I started this story by reading the short excerpt/preview provided on Amazon, and it really got me hooked. I had to know what happened. I enjoyed the story; it was all I point out in keywords above, but in a sort of good way. It's hard to describe. It was very Disney like where Prince Charming comes along and rescues the innocent from poverty

Hospital scene! Great danger and action.

Very cool that Diego had him clean himself before being rimmed.

Very sweet. Not particularly deep but really good for a"new couple every time" series.

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Hot pink skyline foreground and casino backdrop wrap around a lone man. His expression is serious, features are prominent. The synopsis sounds intriguing and exciting.
Looking Deeper:
Third-person POV. Although this is the sixth book in the series and I've not read any of the previous books in this series, I had no problem following the characters and plot. Diego is rugged, outdoorsy-type

I’ve been wanting this story for a while now, being a fan of the series and having read every book, I see Rich in the background and have eagerly waited for his time to come. Rich may be young, but he has a good head on his shoulders. He volunteers constantly at the shelter, takes classes at the local college and works full time at the Lucky Cup Coffee Shop. His schedule doesn’t leave much time for dating but when he does, one disastrous date after another leads Rich to consider swearing off men ...more

3.5 Heart Review by Kimberley

This is book six in the Sin City Uniform series and tells Rich’s story. I absolutely loved Rich’s character and wondered if we were going to learn more about the sweet, smart and sassy coordinator at the shelter that kept Austin in line.

Rich is a young guy who like too many LGBT kids tossed it of their homes for being who they are. He was fortunate that he was able to have someone in his life to step in and take on the role of mother who took him in and sheiks him

"Searching for Shelter" is book 6 from Morticia Knight's Sin City Uniforms series. I hadn't read other books in the series before reading this, and I feel that this is a book that can stand on its own without having read the other titles in the series (although now I'm inclined to read more of them because I enjoyed the cast of characters).

Four stars!
This was such a good book. I really enjoyed getting to see Rich have a happily ever after. He’s a total sweetheart and I loved him in the previous books. He works so hard for the youth at the shelter and trying to make things better for them. He truly has a heart of gold. I was glad when things worked out for him at the end with his jobs. He seemed unfulfilled the way things were at the beginning. Diego is perfect for Rich. He treats Rich like he is the

Rich is a young barista who spends much of his free time volunteering at the local shelter planning events for LGBTQ teens. Diego is a search and rescue officer who frequents the coffee shop Rich works at. Rich is in his mid-20s, Diego in his mid-30s.
