The title for this book is truly a perfect fit. It starts with Jase and Scott. Two guys who have been in a relationship for six years. They owned a house, one was a fireman the other an EMT. They had the same shifts so they were always together. Then one Christmas Eve a woman, Elsa, arrives and announces to Jase that Karissa (the six year old girl by her side) was his.

Elsa omg I wanted to beat her to death. She was abusive to Karissa. She called her horrible names and physically assau

Awww, that was just so very sweet. It was the first book by SM I have read like this... I usually go for the ones heavy in kink, and the author does thoes so well. Usually the best thing about a Sean Michael book though, is the characters, and this one has some great ones. Loved the dynamic between Scott and Jase, they were great together. It was a very interesting story which held my interest throughout, and it was nicely written and well edited.

I'm having a hard time getting into this one. Putting it down for a few days and will start fresh!
Broken Heart :-( - DNF

This was a super sweet, uplifting story about a little girl who has been neglected by her drug addicted mother and then gets united with her father and his long-term partner. There is hope, love and quite a bit of fear as these two men become instant dads to this six year old girl, so why didn’t I even finish it? I got sooooo bored!

I don’t really know what I was expecting, if I was expecting anything in particular at all, but it most definitely was not a ‘preparing for pare

I enjoyed the Mannies, Inc. series, so I knew that this would be a hit for me! Yes, I know some of you are thinking, "but this isn't a great literary work of art." Duh, why would I want to read stuffy, overdramatic books written by drunk authors that are either dead and gone or so out of touch with the world today that I want to bang their heads on a wall... but, I digress! *clears throat*

Great mm contemporary story. I love they way this author writes, and I’ll be reading more books from him. This story was about a firefighter and a EMT in an established relationship and a 6 year old girl added to the mix.
Add Love and Mix deals with an established couple facing a major life change in the form of a 6 year old daughter who was previously not known about. The book gives an honest look into how an unexpected upheaval can tax even a solid long term relationship and force partners to either work together or grow apart. While I like this idea of an established couple having to find themselves again, there were a few things that kept me from falling hard for this story.

The book opens with the couple, Jas

That was a really cute read. I loved that they didn't run from the situation but Made a plan and worked it out. The slight jealousy issues, all the worries and the feeling of helplessness all felt real. The sexy times were a little tamer then most of Ms. Michael's books but in comparison to the story line, it worked perfectly.

Another one of my 3* reads. It was nice enough, but somehow something was missing. Perhaps it was too easy, too repetitive. It was a quiet and uneventful story that just drifted along.
And I didn't like the nicknames.

I love Sean Michael’s way he writes about daddies and mannies and cute kids that you can’t help but fall in love with. This one was no different.

Jase and Scott have been partners for the last six years. They work together as emergency responders, Jase a firefighter and Scott an EMT, at the same firehouse; working the same shifts and being content just the two of them, happy, together and in love. Everything was perfect for them.
Then, an ex of Jase’s stops by and drops a huge surprise in his lap

Love Comes in Threes

This is a cute family book of two men who love each other immensely and one of them gets a daughter dropped in his lap. This book tells of how they have to adjust their life to enfold and accommodate the child.

Scott and Jase are a great couple. They love each other completely and will do anything for each other. For the past six years they've worked together and they live in the same house. They are truly the perfect couple.

The little girl is really cute. For a six-year-old s

I liked this book, but the ending was a bit rushed, which is why I gave it three rather than four stars.

Add Love and Mix is a book about an established couple, Scott and Jase, suddenly adjusting to taking care of a six year old. Jase is bi and fathered a daughter before he and Scott got together. Jase had no idea Kerry existed until the day she and her mother showed up at the firehouse. Before then, Jase and Scott had a very comfortable life. They worked their shifts together and got to enjoy th
A lovely heart-warming story of love and understanding. Scott and Jase are an established couple, secure in their relationship and happy with their lives when a bombshell in the shape of a 6 year old girl is suddenly dropped into their laps. Jase is bi and this christmas gift is from a relationship he had before he met Scott. Karissa has had an abusive upbringing and like any child torn from what they know, has a hard time adjusting. I thought this was well handled but still sanitised and toned ...more

Add Love and Mix is a sweet romance between two men that have their lives worked out. Scott is a paramedic and Jase is a firefighter. They have been together for years. To be together more they work the same shifts.. When Elsa shows up with Jase's child and a druggie he wonders how much else he doesn't know and if this will change their relationship. It is a story of life change and true love.

I loved both Jason and Scott and especially Carrie. I enjoyed seeing how they worked out their new life.

This was really cute.
I happened to have good timing reading this. I think it was more enjoyable for me, because I read it during major stress...and it was nice to have something sweet.

This is not the sex fest that you usually find in a Sean Michael story. I really enjoy his stories that don't have a lot of sex. (But I also find times I like the sex fest also, when I'm in the mood)

The mother in this story was disgusting. I'm glad she didn't have a lot of page time.

I will start that I love Sean Michael’s books, so I know I am biased. I loved this book. Plus it’s in Canada, another bias for me. But I still totally enjoyed it. Firefighter and EMT, seriously, how can you go wrong when you add in a cute little girl. It was a steady pace, the MCs were likable and not perfect and definitely had some frailties. I would totally recommend this book.

Wouldn’t recommend.

For those of us who like a good story line this was not it for me and I love read mm romance. But, this book was all over the place for me and Scott was annoying me out of me all throughout the story. I liked the characters I just think it could have been better.

A nice story - nice being the operative word. Ho-hum.

Sloppy, one dimensional, and shallow.

And what is the point of going out of the way to incorrectly explain what a metaphor is...

In a word: Maybe read the thing. Given that this book is basically about two men in love taking care of a child and becoming a family, I feel like I really should’ve liked it more than I did. I think my main issue with it is that it got a bit down in parts in ways that made me uncomfortable. Jase and Scott have been together for six years. They both have high-stress, high-energy jobs that they love and they’re both thriving in this life cycle of work-sex-sleep-repeat. Then one Christmas Eve, Jas ...more
I loved this book. Jace and Scott were so in love, the perfect relationship. After 6 years they were still going strong, with work and home, then Christmas eve brought a surprise in the form of Jase's daughter he never knew he had. Scott, never even thought about running instead he sticks it out and tried to make a life for Kerry with Jace. He was angry and everything changed but he never complained and instead went out of his way.
I love how they worked it out and everything although was not per
