4.5 Stars

Oh my goodness!! I have never read this author before but she has a great start to a series on her hands! Saint has had a relatively rough upbringing, when I say relatively he is forced to follow in his father’s footsteps steps and become a surgeon. He rebels the only way he can and helps the people of third world countries but this puts him in a situation to be kidnapped and tortured. I felt so bad for Saint’s plight in life and his heartbreaking outlook on life now. Then Max comes

"There is only one we are meant to love, and when you find him you will know. The trick is to never let him go. "

A Feels good romance that checks all the boxes.

Saint found a way to run from his past while recreating his future. He wasn't ready to face what happened. The nightmares still plagued not only his dreams but on occasion his waking moments. He wasn't the same easy going man he once was and he knew it. Pouring himself into the restoration, he thought was the answer. That was until a

We meet Saint in the last Boys of Brighton book as he is Johnny's brother. Don't worry if you haven't read Boys of Brighton (even though you really should), you'll still understand everything in this book. Saint is determined to rebuild the life he wants in LA and is looking for someone that will help him realize his dream of the building that he bought. Max is a building contractor with plenty of experience in bringing old building's past beauty out and goes to see Saint as a favor of Grandma ...more

Loving this New Series...

This book was such a good read. I really enjoyed Max and Saints story it didn't start off as sunshine and roses for the two for a moment I thought the first were going to fly but once Saint took his head out of his butt like Max suggested the sparks flew. The supporting characters were so likeable as well I can't wait for Finn and Miguel's story next the little glimpses into their lives during the story made me want to see more and I'm also hoping that Finn and his

3.5 Stars An Okay story for this one. I didn't feel their connection as I read. Francis aka Saint had seen and lived through some horrible things which still affected him. I did enjoy the stubbornness between Saint and Max at the start of the book especially with their first meeting not going too well. The ol saying Doctors don't make the best patients was true in Saints case.
Saint 39 had a horrible past on he was trying to overcome but it always rears its head one way or another especially

Another promising series

Ms Tasia has done it again!

This is Saint's story, for readers of the Brighton Boys, you'll know he needs a break! After being forced to become a plastic surgeon by his father, he rebels by assisting people in 3rd world countries, which puts him in the position to be kidnapped and tortured.
You really feel for him, that's for sure!
Max is the perfect man for poor Saint's battered soul, not that he doesn't have his own issues!

Overall, this was engaging, steady paced and

I loved it!

It was such a good book. Between Max and Saint it had it all. The good, bad, and everything in between. I just really loved it and I can’t wait for the next book. Thank you for writing it.

Love Saint and Max

I love that the start of this new series starts off with Saint. Since I learned his story I wanted him to get his own HEA. I can't wait for Finn's book.

Loved it!

What a wonderful continuation to the Brighton stories. This is a completely different series with only a slight mention of Saints brother Johnny. Loved this story and the fact that the author didn't feel the need to pull a ton of characters from her other series. The location in the story keep me engaged and the characters development was superb. I got a story not just mindless erotica. Love it! I can't stress that enough.
