Return for Me
Be manly. Don’t ever let the world think you’re weak, and certainly not that you’re gay. Or that’ll ruin everything.
That was the advice my dear old dad always gave me before he passed away, leaving me in charge of Reed Enterprises. His words have served me well up until this day: I’m one of the richest and...more
The Tyler & Duncan love story has music camp crushes, stalker behavior, over-bearing fathers, a sweet sister and lovely friends. Although this story is readable, it could have been better.
There were a few imperfections that distracts from this cute story. The continuity issues, such as the signing of the agreement and the Tyler music experience to name a few.
I also thought the falling love was rather quick.
This was an okay read.
A lot of them, strung together with improbabilities and major character reversals. Feels like watching wax figures or puppets to me. Copy editing would help, too, as there are a lot of misplaced or misused words here. The unlikely plot line seems mostly to me an excuse for pasting together unneeded explicit scenes.
I’ve worked my way through this series in random order and read this one last. I also found it to be the least enjoyable. One thing that has bugged me through several of these stories is that the author can’t seem to get the show’s name straight. The subtitles for these use “Morning Madison” but all thoughout it keeps switching between “Morning Madison” and “Madison Morning.”
As this story began, I really didn’t like either of the MCs. I found the way they spoke characterized ...more
This book held up well as a stand-alone. There are clearly parts that reference the other books in the same world, but the story gives you just enough details about those stories to not leave you feeling lost without feeling like you're getting a full re-cap.
I wanted to like this story more, but there was just something that didn't quite work for me. I think part of it was the transition between the MCs being in the closet and never ...more
I have mixed feelings about this story. At the beginning I wasn’t fond of either Duncan or Tyler. The book got better as it progressed and I was able to see a more personal side of Duncan and Tyler. There were parts of the book that were heartwarming and emotional but the intimate scenes just came off wrong for me. I think the intimate scenes were supposed to come off steamy but they were too clinical and detailed. I am glad I ...more
I don't normally read male/male stories but I found this one to be rather enjoyable. Tyler knew he was gay as a child and one summer at music camp he ran into Duncan and realized sparks flew. The chemistry was there but unfortunately Duncan wasn't ready to admit that he was interested in Tyler. Fast forward 13 years Tyler was out but not to his family and Duncan still hid behind the facade that he was straight. Can Tyler's love for Duncan make him realize that the world will not ...more
It is about: a CEO (Duncan Reed) who always tried to follow his deceased father’s advice but then he meets a man (Tyler) from his past and the games for his heart begins.
There is: some drama, a homophobic father, a caring sister, a trusted assistant, memories, obsession, attractions, mischievousness, secrets, fantasies, NDA, domination, shock, submission, role playing, motivation, coming out, moral support, unexpected ...more
*I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is my honest review.*
I enjoy this series. It is light yet deals with some emotional topics. The guys are smart, talented, romantic and hot. Not a lot of angst which is good. They are a a delight to read. This story was no exception. Sometimes one's childhood fantasies can become real. Just have patience. Ready for the next in the series.
Young men with their first hints of attraction grow into strong men too scared to come out of the closet. Duncan and Tyler grow up with unhealthy perspectives about the definition of what a man is and they each take different approaches to reveal their identities. They have their struggles but, find the love they always knew was there.
