Second Chances:
Chance Whitaker is 35 years’ old and still alone. His last boyfriend thought ‘Let's move in together' meant 'Let's sleep around and bring random strangers home for a three-way.' And that was on his last birthday! Just because he was attracted to younger men it didn’t mean he had to give up on fidelity, loyalty and love.
Remy Dawes is 19 years’ old and has always been alone. Remy works at Matchmakers as a stripper/porn star and even

3X 5 Star stories in one.. Highly Recommended
Okay.. First up this was a first read for me for this author. Since this book is 3 stories I'm going to review as I go with each.

Second Chances <3 <3 <3
This is a FANTASTIC story I loved Remy and Chance's story they tottally belong to each other. Once you get used to being in the "GODS World" and the use of different wordings for the days of the week you'll love it. I loved Remy as a 19 year old he's certainly experienced a lot of bad things in his you

2016 Rainbow Awards Honorable Mention: Matchmakers by G.R. Lyons
I absolutely loved this series. The author showed how each of the men grew in character. There were real emotions and I fell in love with them all. I see that there are stories that set the stage for the development of the back stories and the setting of all the stories that I'm going to have to purchase.

This collection has it all!

The story is gripping. It had romance, it had drama, and it had lots of tragedy. Amazing and imaginative world building. I totally recommend this to others.

This is the first Book(s) I have read from this author and I was pleasantly surprised.

After a little misunderstanding regarding the setting of the stories the Author was kind enough to answer my doubts and I was able to submerge into the stories.
So in short this 3 books are now in one perfect package for all the readers pleasure.
All stories take place in a different world, and although this is entirely the Author choice I personally don't think this has a particular impact to any of the stori

G.R. Lyons stumbled into writing as a form of trauma recovery when traditional therapy wasn't working.

Then the story ideas just kept on coming.

Pulling from a vivid imagination as well as real-life experience as a trans man, a sexual assault survivor, and a person living with mental illness, Lyons has written multiple, interconnected series set within his fictional world of the Shifting Isles.
