Really enjoyed this - sweet and warm with equal touches of wisdom and humor. Kent found himself at rock bottom after
divorcing his husband and leaving with nothing but an old shack on the Florida Keys. Dusk many years Kents junior was the local vet who lost his home and practice in a hurricane. Both characters were rebuilding and seemed to have found each other at the low points of their lives. While there was a bit going on, I really enjoyed the steady flow of Dusk & Kent as the MCs.

Kent, although older, grew alot in this book. He stepped back and reevaluated his life with his ex husband and realized where things diverged. He realized that they were two different people and he didn’t want to become like his ex had. He wanted to work hard and be appreciated. He wanted someone around him that was a hard worker and honest. But when the book first starts he is looking more at the now and the pain he was feeling and not the future. Overall Kent was a good guy. He was just needin ...more

Another great read from the Trade Me collection of M/M romances from Hot Tree Publishing. Found You is a quick engaging sweet romance with a touch of opposites attract.

Dusk Keller has been raised in a free and hippie environment who has gone on to pursue his dream career as a vet. Now living back in Florida near his non-conformist parents, he has always been comfortable in his own skin and sees each day as a new challenge. When the next hurricane hits, he finds it an even bigger challenge and l

I was gifted a copy of this book, direct from the author.

Kent ran to the Florida Keys after his divorce. Finding your husband in your bed with someone will break anyone's heart. Kent never expected Florida to have such a lovely view. He also didn't know that view came with a 5 am wake up call and dogs! Dusk's vet clinic suffered badly at the hands of Mother Nature and he is doing odd jobs to raise funds to fix it up again. Offering to help Kent fix his house seemed like such a good idea!

FOUND YOU by Dahlia Donovan is a must-read! It's a sweet and witty tale of Dusk and Kent, two men leading different lives who find themselves intertwined in a partnership of more than one kind. Dusk, with his laid-back attitude, making the first move on the heartbroken Kent is brilliant and brings the story to life. Her characters are lovable and you are rooting for things to work for them the entire time. Did I mention the sex scenes are hot and well-written? Heck, the entire book is well-writt ...more

First "fuck-a-doodle-do" is my new favorite phrase. Now, Kent and Dusk...I have no words for how amazing these two are. I LOVED this book from start to finish. Not a single complaint. Great characters, wonderful story, the right amount of heat and romance, a perfect amount of humor. I believe I have read everything this author has out now and I've yet to be disappointed. Kent has been burned in the worst way, betrayed by someone he trusted and loved, forced to leave the life he'd been accustomed ...more

Found You by Dahlia Donovan is a sweet romantic M/M story about a displaced construction worker who found himself divorced and stripped of his possessions and a vet who is trying to raise money to rebuild his vet clinic in Key West after a hurricane destroyed it.

The hurricane destroyed not only Dusk's clinic, but his home and he has to try to raise money to rebuild because the insurance is not enough. He refuses to take handouts and basically forces himself on Kent, the man who just moved to Ke

Found You starts with the aftermath of a hurricane in the Florida Keys. Dusk is left without his veterinarian practice/home, but is determined to fix it himself. He does odd jobs to save up his money, plus dealing with his client base where he can. He meets Kent on one of his morning walks, and decides to ask him if he needs any help fixing up the beach cottage where Kent is staying.

Dusk is in his 30s, and Kent in his 40s, and these two are simply fantastic together! They perfectly complement e

'You're grumpy,like an old rooster who can't crow anymore,You work too hard and think too much. You've been here how long,but never once actually enjoyed the beach.' (Dusk)

The 'Book Blurb' gives enough away so I don't feel the need to go into great detail as regards the story itself,but what I will say is I enjoyed this-the M/M Genre is one of my favorite's to read,and this flowed well with Dual POV's,there was some funny parts(mostly the dialogue from Dusk-his easy-going

This was my first book to read by Dahlia Donovan and I must say this was a refreshing great story.

For only be a novella it sure hit the mark. There was complete character development, plot and HEA found with out cutting any corners. Kent is a 40 year old divorcee who is try to rebuild his life after everything he build was taking by is former husband.

Dusk is the local vet down in the Keys who's practice was ruined by a hurricane. Being to proud to ask for hand outs or help from his
Kent and Dusk are from different worlds you can say and cannot be more different. Kent is recently divorced and in a new town after losing it all (husband, business, money-you name it). He is trying to move on and pick up his life.
Dusk is a mix of his mom and dad. He is laid back and loves being a Vet. While he is trying to rebuild his business after the hurricane he never expected to find someone.
Kent is like a grumpy old man and Dusk brings out the traits Kent suppresses, whether he likes it

When Dusk's veterinarian practice is destroyed in a storm, he takes to doing odd jobs as a way of saving for the repairs. Kent is in the Keys after a nasty break-up from his husband and is working on fixing up the house. Dusk's energy and positive thinking contrast with Kent's seriousness. He finds a way under Kent's walls.

'Found You' was about understanding what is important to you and working hard to achieve it. Love does not come easily and needs to be worked on and shown every day. I loved t

A quick, easy cute read. The characters Kent and Dusk are wonderful characters. Kent just went through a divorce after finding his husband in bed with a younger man. Left with nothing but the house in the Keys, he heads there to start over.

After a hurricane destroys most of his animal clinic, Dusk gets busy trying to repair what the storm destroyed. Trying to earn extra money for the repairs he helps Kent fix his beach cottage.

These two are great. I love that Kent is older and he and Dusk are

Found You was a good read.

I loved to read about Kent and Dusk reconstruction of both their places and their lives.
I've appreciated how the story develops without any major drama focusing instead on the main characters growing attraction and affection.

This was a short novella but the author made an amazing job to deliver a very compelling and intriguing story in a few pages.

Great find

I absolutely loved this one from Dahlia Donovan.

This was a well written, tastefully steamy M/M romance. Dahlia knows how to weave a story.

If you enjoy M/M love stories, then you have got to read this 4 star story today!

Another solid addition to the Trade Me series. The pace of life and the secondary characters make living there seem ideal. Dusk and Kent are perfect for each other, despite their many differences. And just like everyone living in their small town, I'd like to know more about Jesse.

Enjoyed the story of the two guys - Kent and Dusk - getting to know each other, very much an opposites attract thing. They definitely attract and certainly get together many times and oft!
I did get a bit pee’d by the third party referrals - the veterinarian, the builder, the man etc.
Dusk for all his laid back Florida ways is still quite principled and has his pride about accepting help.
Kent has to learn a new way of life, much different to Colorado.
I don’t think they were as far apart in age
1.5 stars

Though I liked the characters this read partially like a travelogue... though the chickens were talked about what was surprisingly not mentioned was the fact that they are protected. Not allowed to be disturbed. Also filled with many contradictions. As well as unrealistically rehabbing buildings without any mention of codes, permits or inspections. SMH

This was a short quick read. It is full of humor and passion between Dusk and Kent. After a hurricane blows through the Florida Keys, Dusk is in the process of rebuilding his vet clinic. After going through a rough time Kent has decided to move to his little cottage in the Keys to reevaluate his life. This two were funny and so totally opposite of one another.

It was not too bad. I just didn't like Dusk (he reminded me of Deeks from NCIS LA too much). I wanted more angst and seriousness but it all was too lighthearted. Also the writing suffered a lot from "telling" instead of "showing".

Dahlia Donovan wrote her first romance series after a crazy dream about shifters and damsels in distress. She prefers irreverent humour and unconventional characters. An autistic and occasional hermit, her life wouldn’t be complete without her husband and her massive collection of books and video games.
