This was definitely one of those times when I was thinking, "Is everyone else reading the same book that I was?," because this wasn't even close to a 4-star read for me.

I felt that the writing was pretty simplistic, with very little depth. And corny, with a side of flat out odd.
Just warning you, I’m slippery when wet.


Are you sucking up to me?
I’ll always suck you up,” he said, wiggling his eyebrows.


While the physical part of our relationship is mighty fine”—I grinned—“I know someday

I don't do it often but sometimes I read a blurb and well I did it with this book and I loved the idea of the plot.

This book was so unbelievably beautiful. I was sucked into this quickly, had my heart broke and repaired along with Brad. Colton and his niece melted my heart. I seriously loved these two characters, they balance each other so well. Brad supports Colton in everything he does and sincerely cares for him. Colton, in turn, helps Brad heal and move on with his life. He knows he's had tragedy in his life and moves at his speed. I was doing so well until the ultimate happens..

So I do not like to put spoilers or too much of the story line in my reviews but here we go. I have loved everything I have read by Gen Ryan but I was hesitant to read this because I do not typically read a lot of M/M romance. I am so glad I read this because I would have missed out on this Beautiful, sexy book! This is a wonderful story about two people falling in love and healing each other. I immediately fell in love with Brad and Colton and I was rooting for them from the beginning. The chem ...more

I can't believe I even got this far. I must be reading a different book to everyone else? But whatever, I'm completely done with this below par writing and story line.

Losing You is the sweet and hot story of Brad and Colton. Both of them have suffered in the past in various ways that can still have an effect, even if you think one way is worse than the other. They meet by chance, although there might be a hand of fate (sisters) involved. The sparks between these two are instantaneous, but they both have issues to deal with.

There is a little bit of everything in this book, which makes it a delight to read. There is love, danger, friendship, and betrayal, to na

I have debated on this review for what seems like forever so I am going to get the thing I didn't like out of the way because it really bugged me.

Not Everyone needs to be connected to each other in the story!
Like you don't have to have "Lead A" friends/acquaintances with "Lead B's" brother/sister/cousin/bestie and it be "Oh! you already know each other!". Seriously, it's not needed, it was so predictable it had me rolling my eyes.

Ok, now on to the story.

Semi Pro Surfer Brad heads to Rhode Island
Losing You is a must read for those of you who not only love a M/M read, but for those of you who love a HEA after finding yourself and someone who accepts you for you. At first I thought the title referred to the events of how Brad and Colton lost a part of them and didn't want to risk losing what they were yearning for. Wrong! It was about accepting what they lost and how they couldn't imagine not getting the HEA they deserved. Losing You is a very touching story with some tragic events though ...more

So sweet

Love the story of brad and Colton. Love the way the story brought two ppl together with past that had them stuck and unable to move forward. A must read on how fate brought them together.

Another fantastic read from this author! I loved her other book in this collection, Fix You. It was great to see how Maxwell and Jason were doing in this book. Brad's story is such a heartbreaking one. Losing his sister the way he did was unimaginable, especially when associated with something his life revolved around. When he meets Colton, sparks fly! Romance, heartache, a little humor, a little steaminess, combine together to make for a perfect read. ...more

Sweet, so sweet.

Whilst cop Colton was focused on getting his man the house of his dreams, his man walked out the door, leaving him alone once again. Brad is avoiding living fully, leaving his family and his passion for the water behind. It is the water that brings Brad back to life and brings Colton into his life.

Whilst Colton has been focused on his career, Brad helps him realise he can have both love and a career.

These two men deserve someone who will cherish and love them for who they are: fl

Loved this. I cried for Brad. He lost so much of himself that you just want to hold him and never let go. Seeing him flounder and in pain was hard but his journey to finding strength and his passion again was beautiful. As was Colton’s journey to seeing that there is more to life than work-like love and family. I hated to see him hurt by Ben but can understand why. He was a workaholic.

Brad starts to get his life going again and this is when Colton comes about. the attraction is so heartfelt and
