Seems these two run into trouble even on vacation. This one wasn’t a favorite of mine in the series but I still love these two so much.
4 stars!!💕💞 What a lovely way to end the series!! 😍 I love Josh and Gabe and I'm so sorry that I'm late to this party.. I completely missed this when it came out last year.. but I'm glad that I finally got a chance to say good-bye to these two.. and in such a fabulous way. 👏🤩
Josh and Gabe have come so far since their early days of meeting in the middle of murder and mayhem in Blissville; and then finding love, settling down and expanding their family. Now that they have the twins, busy professio

We bid farewell (or at least only adieu for now I hope) to Josh and Gabe Roman-Wyatt with a madcap murder mystery vacation romance full of dodgy deeds and strange happenings.

The narrative itself meandered through the usual hot and steamy relationship between these two fabulous characters - as they tried to enjoy a relaxing vacation with no kids - and a suspense element with a menagerie of vividly painted secondary characters.

I'm not going into the plot at all, suffice it to say, it wasn't what/w

Reading this was a little bit bittersweet! I'm so, so happy we've had these amazing stories with Gabe, Josh, and their friends and family, but knowing that this was the final book in their series, made me want to savor reading this one. Of course, once I started reading I couldn't stop, so so much for that! :P

I know we'll get to see them in the rest of the Blissville series, but y'know, it's not *their* series anymore, and the focus won't be on them. I have loved reading about Gabe and Josh from

I adore Gabe and Josh. Catching up with them is always fun. What I love most is they are an established couple who continue to love one another fully. It makes me happy.
It seems these two can never stay out of trouble. Even when they try to take a relaxing vacation it seems to find them.

Leave it to Gabe and Josh to wind up in the middle of a real murder mystery even on vacation!

I cannot think of a higher compliment to a book than this: I truly only meant to read the first chapter, but ended up going until it was finished and enjoyed every minute of it. This series has grown so much for me with characters I really care about and a family I just want to see be happy.

Told in dual POV readers get a chance to spend more time with Josh and Gabe as they leave for a sexy and relaxing
Audiobook review

4,5 stars

Ride or Dye is the final instalment in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries and it showed. Throughout there was this feeling that this was a goodbye. It didn’t bring anything new, but was more of a catching up with old friends to see what they were up to. Josh and Gabe are living in married bliss with their twins and extended family and friends – and their many, many pets. They have a rich and full life in every way that counts, but sometimes it’s nice to take a break from the
Gabe and Roman are still hot AF together, and while there wasn't really much to the mystery in this one I still really liked it. Adored how they jump into growing their family, too.

Quote… You're my personal sunrise and sunset

When I saw that the final book in this series was released, I couldn’t wait to read it. I just needed to know how Gabe and Josh's story ended. I've followed them for a long time, and watching them being happy, having their happily ever after.

I haven't kept up with the spin-off series Road to Blissville so I was a bit lost in the beginning in regards to the timeline, some of the characters were also new. But that was only in the beginning, as most of t
Enjoyable, I still like the MCs but I was expecting more plot. It felt like 80% is just schoompy blissful "I love you. no I love you. I love you more. no I love you more! You're amazing. No you're the amazing one." Blah blah blah. bang bang bang. rinse repeat. etc etc etc. I was expecting the mystery to have more focus. The wrap up feels hurried and I was disappointed with the culprit. But like I said, the characters are still who they are, It's not a bad plot per se. I think I would've enjoyed ...more

Not a bad end to the series and the house murder mystery game was a nice deviation from the other mysteries. I liked this series as a whole, never really loved it but this was a nice wrap up for Gabe and Josh.

It's no secret that I love everything this woman writes, and this book is no exception!! Josh and Gabe are as snarky and sexy as ever in this final Curl Up and Dye story. So many LOL moments!! Aimee throws in a mystery that is so much fun and so damn clever. Her brain never ceases to amaze me! I'm sad to see their story "end" even though I know we will be seeing more of the boys and their ever growing family in the Blissville world. Go forth and click!!

This is one of those series that is never going to win an award for outstanding writing, best mystery, or even original ideas. But it can win for established couple and for humor, snark, and just plain fun.

I enjoyed most of the books and for this "finale" of the series (we won't count the couples' appearances in the sister series, Road to Blissville) I treated myself to the wonderful voice(s) of Joel Leslie. Josh would not be Josh without Joel's voice. Gabe would not be Gabe and those parrots w

The first book in this series was picked for me in a challenge and I devoured that and the next 4 books.
I was so excited when I found book 6 had been released. I read this in practically 1 sitting, with a little bit of work in between.
Josh and Gabe are away on a vacatiion which just happens to have a murder mystery to solve. I loved this book. If there was anything to be picky about, it was the fact the murder was solved so easily but i really loved these guys. The epilogue was wonderful too.

2.5 Stars. I know I'm in the minority here but there just wasn't much to this book other than I love you, my life is so perfect, we still have hot sex - insert sex scene. I love you more, how did I get so lucky this is my life, I still want you passionately - insert sex scene. Oh look we are on vacation having a wonderful time together, I love you, I love you more, this is what we had for breakfast - insert sex scene blah blah blah. The mystery didn't even happen until towards the end and then t ...more

Good closing to the I just have to finish the rest of the Road to Blissville books.
Never go on a murder mystery vacation with a cop... even if you love him more than anything on earth. I'm going too miss these two guys... its sad this is their last book.

I can never get enough of Josh and Gabe! Knowing this is the last book in their series made me tear up a little when I started. I loved every moment of their beautiful story.

Continuing saga of Josh (Jazz) Roman-Wyatt and his husband Gabriel (Gabe) Roman-Wyatt. In this final story Gabe decides to give Josh a romantic vacation to a plantation home where activities abound and a murder mystery dinner to solve. Only hitch in the vacation is the murder mystery becomes real. Josh and Gabe are surrounded by people who aren't who they pretend and several who know each other a little too well. Gabe goes against his basic urge to solve the crime and is trying to get Josh home ...more

Sad to see the series end

While I downloaded the book on release day I kept putting off reading it because I didn’t want to face the end of the series and my time with Josh and Gabe. I finally got up the courage and started it but read more slowly than usual to string it out. It amused me when I saw Josh make a similar comment about a book he’s reading!

The author does her usual fantastic job with setting the scene. I love the descriptive nature of Walker’s writing as it pulls you into the story a

Another great add to this amazing series. The book definitely started out with excitement that you can only expect from the three crazy musketeers (Josh, Chaz and Meredith) you know and love. Old favorites have grown so much since book 1, in the best way possible. We see Trent and Tucker too which I love a good come back story and he's it. Can't wait to see how they turn out. Gabe and Josh finally get their road trip, they head to the gorgeous Tarlington House, which reminded me of the beautiful ...more

Simply Snarktasic!

I will be the first to tell you I love every book Aimee Nicole Walker has released, but Josh and Gabe will forever be my favorite couple. I hate seeing the end of this magnificent series, but I know that whatever comes next will be just as wonderful.

This book has a lot of fun and snarky moments and lots of romantic moments that keeps you reeled in. Gabe plans what he hopes is going to be a fun week. The drama that flows from the background characters will have you laughing and

If this is the final story of this INCREDIBLE SERIES it was the PERFECT adventure. Gabe still our sexy police Captain, happily married to our sassy, over the top stylist Josh, both wrapped around the fingers of their twins Dylan and Destiny. When Gabe plans a romantic, one of a kind vacation to surprise Josh, let the games begin. It's all fun, love and snark. It's a murder mystery, with a twist. It's visits with Chaz and Mere and the birth of her baby, is a HOOT!! It's meeting

4.5 Stars!

Ride or Dye is the sixth (and last!) installment of the Curl Up and Dye series by Aimee Nicole Walker and it's just as fun, sexy and engaging as the rest of the books were.

Josh and Gabe were just about as amazing as they've always been and Ms. Walker recaptured the magic of their relationship and the chemistry that has made this such a successful franchise. It's a delight not only seeing them as in love as ever but also fully embracing their new facet as parents.

 ☔️ Stormy Day Reader
The final book in the Curl Up and Dye Mysteries series, Ride of Dye was packed full of unneeded details that left me extremely frustrated that I got this on audiobook instead of ebook leaving me unable to skip over all of it. For example, the details on the house Gabe rented a suite at for their vacation and the items on the breakfast buffet. I feel like this book could have been much shorter.

The mystery itself came as a surprise to me although I don't know why I hadn't expected it. Truly, my fa

Fantastic end to an entertaining series

I really enjoyed the Curl Up and Dye stories and this final book was a fitting conclusion to the series. Josh and Gabe wanted to spend some quality alone time as a couple away from the excitement and exhaustion of their everyday home life. They decided to have a week without their 2 small children while grandparents babysat for them. The week started out well, but a varied cast of fellow holidaymakers provided Josh and Gabe with an interesting mystery.

3.5 stars.🌟 This is an okay book, and the ending of the series.
A great start but somethings bugged me, the shorting of the baby's name straight after she was born and named, for"Victoria".  I loved their sexy pictures at each chapter, a shame my ebook isn't in colour. Its seemed every five minutes they were having sex in this book which put me off slightly. The mystery spot of their vacation provided lots of games and challenges good and bad. Drama enfolds with murder and the ending of the book

It can't be over!

The Curl Up and Dye series is one of my favorites! Gabe and Josh have managed to tie Tate and Logan from another series, and I NEVER saw that happening! I'm sad that this is the end of their story though, but that says a lot about the author and the way she writes. If an author can introduce fictional characters to a reader and those characters become real in your mind, that author has done their job.

Words can't express how much I love this book and this series. I'm sure we'll b
