After living on the streets and in his car, Travis has found a home in Brighton, Texas. His job as a cook at the local diner pays enough for him to afford a small apartment, and, for the first time in years, he's able to feed his passion, buying a few art supplies so he can sketch. He's safe, and, oddly enough, feels accepted in this small town. And, for reasons

M. Tasia makes it hard to pick favorites in these books but to be honest, if you’ve kept up with this series, you know what I mean. But I think I just officially found my favorite so far. Not loving the others any less, but there’s something about Travis that calls to you and I’m glad he got Bo to see that in him. He needed good in his life for once and for to finally be seen as the angel he is.
Travis’s life has been downhill since he was 16. Something tragic happened in his life and it’s been e

M. Tasia is amazing author, writer and person. she's one of my favorite authors. Travis an bo make a perfect couple. I don't want to give to much away because I want everyone to read it. well people who in to mm books. Anyway they both needed each other. this book shows that everyone has scars on the inside and on the outside. Scars they don't make people look ugly. it's not what people look like on the outside. it's what is inside of someone. Travis and bo both deserve love and each other. I hi ...more

As always M. Tasia writes beautiful characters. I laughed. I cried. Travis is the perfect addition to the other boys in the Small Texas town of Brighton, and I can't wait for Grady's story. One of the best written gay romance/erotica seires I have had the pleasure of reading.

If you love gay romance, and you have not read these books...what are you waiting for?

I enjoyed this trip back into the world of The Boys of Brighton. Every time I return there I feel like I have returned home. I enjoy seeing the characters from prior books in the series. They add that extra oomph to each book.
I knew, I just knew, that Bo and Travis' story would be good. I was not disappointed.
Bo is a wonderfully strong character. Just what Travis needs to pull him away from the fear of intimacy he has harbored for years.
Travis blossoms under his care and while he gets stronger,

3.5 Stars. Not as good as the other books, but still enjoyable. Travis and Bo have been gravitating to each other for a while and Bo finally took the step towards claiming Travis. Travis, a bit hesitant, but determined to make a life with Bo, decided to take the necessary steps to make it happen.

Travis's life is finally changing for the better, although the man is still not ready to get out of his shell and show anyone the real him. However, Bo Mason doesn't give up, hoping that Travis will let him jump over the high walls he surround himself with, open up to him, let Bo love him. The problem is that Travis considers himself unworthy of anyone's love, and his painful, tragic past doesn't allow him to live a normal life, as it returns at night in the form of nightmares. But Bo is determi ...more

My Favorite in the Series So Far!
I am a big fan of M. Tasia’s Boys of Brighton series. The novellas are sexy, sweet, action-packed, and entertaining, and the characters - from the ginormous Mason family to the hodge podge of people in the small-town Texas community - make each and every story so relatable and fun that I find myself drawn in from the very beginning. The sixth book in the series is “Travis,” and it has all the same wonderful aspects of the previous books in the series with the exc

As I keep reading each book in this series, I am drawn in more and more into this little town in Texas. What a wonderful community this is that accepts everyone and comes together when its needed (and even when it’s not!) This is the story of Travis and Bo. Travis is a cook at the diner and has been living on his own since he was 18. Travis feels like he is damaged goods and hasn’t had the love of someone since his father died in a fire that left Travis burned on over 50% of his body. Bo is a co ...more

This was another quick read. It can be read as a standalone but the previous books mentioned these 2 alot especially in Jesse and Coop and how they flirted and felt about each so it was really in those books that I had already fell in love with these 2 so I would highly recommend reading them first. Both characters are great and so sweet. They were perfect for each other and had great chemistry. This was a low heat read but it suited the couple and circumstances. This book is also low angst and ...more

This is the first book I have read by M. Tasia and I loved it! It is beautifully written and the characters are well developed. It is an emotional read that had me crying and I could not put it down. Travis has a horrific past and he doesn't think he deserves love, he is scarred inside and out. Bo met Travis and fell for him immediately, he understands how hard it is to get past a traumatic event and he is willing to wait as long as it takes for Travis to open up to him. Once Travis learns to tr ...more
 I've been curious about Travis since the moment he appeared at the diner! I do love a wounded character who is secretive about what has happened to him.

The main drama in this installment of the series is that recently hired chef, Travis, and Brighton Police Officer, Bo have feelings for one another. There is a lot in Travis' past that has left him with serious trust issues, a guilt complex almost too big for one person to live with and physical scars. As if that weren't enough, he also dealt wi

I still giggle halfway through these tales from the community of Brighton..... waiting for the newbie to be invited to a dinner where they're the main course. (Way too many scary movie watching as a child). But hey.... this author has made a hardcore no-nonsense anti-romantic.... a romantic.

I love the mix of big guy warrior and the smaller love interest. It's nice reading. And the wholesomeness of Brighton Texas is growing on me.

Travis tugged at my heart. The author weaved a tale of emotional r

This book carries on the story of the men of Brighton with police officer Bo and Travis who has drifted around since being burned badly in a fire. This story is a bit sweeter than the other stories in this series but it’s no less fun to read. M. Tasia has a way with words that I really enjoy. While this book has some tension and action it’s the romance and love that shine through. She is point on with the pacing, the dialogue and more but especially her characters which for me are the best thing ...more

3.5 rounded up to a 4

Bo and Travis have a nice story. Their love was sweet and well written. Brighton continues to be a heartwarming town with varied and interesting characters.

This book was hard for me to read. I only have one trigger and this book jumped right into the middle of it. I would of really preferred to of known what I’d be reading. Because of the need to keep from giving spoilers I can’t even say what the issue was. So my review is brief. Is it fair to give a book a lower rating bec

Travis has not had an easy life. He has landed a job as a cook in the diner and is settling in and he is hopeful that he can settle into a decent life and move forward. Bo is intrigued and besotted by Travis but he recognizes that there is something going on with Travis. Bo pursues Travis patiently and with care but he is consistent. He wants him true, but he also wants to be there for him. Having Bo in his life helps Travis seek the help that he needs to deal with things in his past that were s ...more

Travis has been through so much, and he is resigned to spending his life alone. Sweet and loving Bo is not going to let that happen. This book is the wonderful story of Bo easing past Travis' defenses and showing him that he's lovable and beautiful, even with the scars he wears on his body and in his heart. I haven't read any other books in this series, but this one is a great standalone. It does make me want to read the rest of the series, though, as all the characters seem like great friends a ...more

You gave me love. Travis was facing hard times until he landed in Brighton. He made friends and found a bit of security. Bo, the cop seems interested. Travis puzzled why. Bo is immediately intensely attracted to Travis when he first meets him. He knows there is a good wonderful man beneath the crusty defensive exterior. Travis was dragging some heavy baggage. Was Bo enough to help lift it? These guys are perfect for each other. Nice flow. Great twists. Great story. Well done! I received an ARC a ...more

I wonderful book that I really enjoyed. Great storyline that kept hooked all the way through. Bo and Travis are both wonderful characters who are perfect together. Bo is the perfectly strong kind of person that Travis needs to help him get over his intimacy issues. Can't wait for more from this series and now need to go back and read the other books from this series.
I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

A beautiful story for Travis that I loved, he certainly had suffered and still from horrible nightmares every night. It was Bo that he gets the courage to seek help but Travis is stronger than he believes. The storyline was a great one but with a predictable ending.
Travis's past involved a serious fire but now he was in Brighton with a new start. Travis was working in the diner and got to see his crush, Officer Bo Mason every morning.

Travis is the sixth book in the Boys of Brighton series by M. Tasia. This is a contemporary m/m romance with hurt/heal aspects, seeing beauty within and embracing love. Travis and Bo are wonderful characters that captured my heart with their sweet love and the beauty of their connection. This book made my heart happy. It had a little drama, some humor, a bit of steam and a lot of sweetness. This series is turning out to be amazing.

Travis and Bo were a super sweet couple with that same insta love feeling that all of M Tasia couples have. Travis was awesome, so supportive! I loved how we got little glimpses of them in previous books. I loved the strong, sexy Bo. But Travis’s story was heartbreaking. Another great read. Keep em coming!

I loved this work. My heart went out to Travis and the emotional struggle he went though. I just wanted to pull him in for a massive hug and never let him go. I loved the development between the two characters and the patience that Bo had was so heartwarming. I can't wait to read more in the series.

I give this a five out of five stars.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Love the Boys of Brighton

This is a great addition to the series. We get Travis and Bo's story. It has been hinted at in previous books. Travis' back story is tragic but he works hard not to let it keep him from finding happiness with Bo. Bo is a wonderful man and so good for Travis.
We are even left with a teaser for Grady and Ben's story which should be next.

When Travis came to town he was homeless and jobless but Jesse gave him a job and a place to live. When Bo first saw Travis he wanted him but Travis wasn’t sure because of everything that happened before in his life. Travis worked on his problems to be with Bo. A couple of times I had tears because of what he went through but then I would laugh with them also. Great book again!
