A Morning Madison Second Chance Coming Out Romance.

Duncan:

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

A Sweet Ending!

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.

Ugh

Did a seventeen year old girl write this? It was so ridiculous in certain areas and. Bad porn in others. Could have been good but.......just no.

Stereotypes

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 read this book as part of an arc program. This is another book in the Morning Madison series and features Tyler and Duncan. Tyler and Duncan had met when they were young teens attending a band camp and had a connection then. Tyler and Duncan are both gay and were bullied there. When Duncan told Tyler that he should act straight to avoid being bullied, Tyler kissed him, causing Duncan to run away. Years later, Tyler just left the army and was now back home trying to find work. Tyler always ...more

2.5 stars rounded up.
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

I received an ARC edition of this book from the author.

3.5 stars

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

This is steamy, romantic, dramatic and interesting. Duncan is controlling, bold, stubborn and emotionally closed. Tyler is sweet, caring, impulsive and unsure. They met at band camp and shared one hot kiss, then didn't see each other for 13 years. When Duncan saw a hot guy, he sends his driver to pick him up for a one night stand, but when Tyler shows up, he dominates him, reminds him about the kiss, then walks out. Duncan is stunned at first, then can't get Tyler off his mind. Neither is out, ...more

Return for Me by Ian Finn. This is Duncan Reed and Tyler Lewis’ story.
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

Enjoyable

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

I found this second chance MM romance, fascinating and a pleasure to read.
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

Pros and cons with this story. The words manly man were repeated many times, also I don’t need have sentences that are not important to the story they just take away from what really happening. Inconsistencies where all over the place, he did this but he didn’t do this he did that or did he... To much hate come ing from the fathers of these guys while the mothers are push overs and wouldn’t stand up against their husbands to give their children something to look forward to. I loved that Duncan ...more

Whether the story be about straight love or gay love; as long as love is the preface you honestly have the perfect novel. Tis was a beautiful love story of second chance that spanned a decade. When you can walk that full circle again to find your best starting point, it's so good. Duncan and Tyler's story will warm you heart and fill you up with that intense light of love and music. Something so beautiful and unjudging can conquer worlds. This story definitely conquered me and I highly recommend ...more

This is the first book I've read by this author and I really enjoyed it. If you love second chances and m/m romance, I would recommend reading this one. Tyler and Duncan were great characters. I was rooting for them, and a relationship between them, the entire time. Their story was well written and I didn't want to put it down. Now I want to go back and read the other stories in the Morning Madison series.
*I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. This is my honest review.*

I think my expectations let this book down more than anything else. I liked the premise and I like the main characters a the start and end the middle just felt a bit forced. I ended up falling in love with the other characters more and would be interested to read their story. I love a HEA and this was always going to be that just would have loved a bit more character development and conversation along the way.

This is Duncan and Tyler story. They meet while they was in band camp and then didn't see each other for 13 years. I liked this book but I think that Duncan was just a tad bit rude in most of the book and so far back in the closet about being a gay man that you would wonder if he will ever come out

Romantic yet Sweet and Hot

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.

Good reading

Duncan and Tyler both had a stubborn, homefobic father that thought they new best. I'd like to think like Duncan that his Dad would indeed come to terms with who his son is.

I enjoyed reading this story. Duncan and Tyler are good together. It is a second chance romance but it seems a bit like insta-love, since they haven't seen each other since they were kids.

Great Story

They met at band camp 13 years prior but only had one kiss when you have dad's that don't accept you, you have to wait and find each other as adults.

Good

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.
