Me in my review of Milo:

Gideon gets jealous and goads Milo about Niall's big cock and how good Niall is in bed. WTF? Supposedly, Gideon was just doing this to make Milo see that he had deeper feelings for Niall, but the whole thing was super skeevy.

Also me:

Guys, I am SOLD. Gideon and Eli are my favorite couple of this series, and this book is all the things:

- Slow-burn romance

- Hurt/comfort (Eli is initially Gideon's nurse after all)

- Sizzling sexy times

- Awesome secondary characters (top

Wow...I really loved this book. I even love it a smidge more than " Oz ", which is saying something because I really liked Oz a lot. Gideon though, he rocked my world and so did his love interest Eli. They were absolutely awesome together. I laughed my ass off, fanned myself when things got hot, and I even cried some little tears. Sounds perfect right !! gif

Let me start out by saying that unlike a lot of others, I didn't blame Gideon for his behavior in " Milo ". For me, it was actually the other

I'm going to echo a friend's review here and say that I'm probably one of the few who didn't dislike Gideon in book two.In fact an arrogant asshole character is totally my thing.

Gideon is a hugely successful Actor who seems hell bent on pushing the self destruct button-losing himself in mindless sex and out of control partying.Almost ignored by his parents from a young age he's been guided and manipulated by his ruthless Agent for years.Too jaded to care he just goes with acting roles that

Snark and banter as far as the eye can see, folks!

We first met talented and successful, 39 y.o. actor Gideon in his brother Milo's story, where he was a selfish, over-sexed twat, leaving me slightly less than thrilled at the prospect of Gideon getting his own story, although now I can admit how thoroughly wrong I was in my apprehension.

As the story began, Gideon had ignored Milo's advice about seeing a doctor and contracted a near-fatal case of pneumonia, a private nurse was hired to care for

I need more stars. I also need to learn not to drink tea at the same time as I read a Lily Morton book because this one nearly killed me five times in the first 20%.

Redemption stories are probably one of the highest forms of kryptonite for me (it comes in a variety not just the green one 😉 ) and with Gideon, Lily crafts one that works so well because, when we actually get to know Gideon, it's not really a redemption so much as a realisation.

Loved it.

The 5* rating and this conversation between myself and Eugenia on her 4* rating, is all you need to know....

Lorraine - Is is just me that didnt find Gideon a total ar*e in the other books?
Ive still got this awaiting my pleasure 😁

Eugenia - God, he was a total asswipe is the previous books!! He is still so at the beginning, but he turns into a love-sick fool and its awesome!!

Lorraine - I must like asswipes then 😉

Eugenia - Well, theyre handy as sh*t! 😁

This might be my favorite from this author! I absolutely loved the writing and this book really delivered!

It's the third book in the Finding Home series by Lily Morton. I loved the first book, Oz. I haven't read the second book, Milo, but Gideon's story was amazing.

Gideon is a 39 years old famous actor. He's wealthy and lives a very unconventional life, partying and having fun to the extreme. He is destroying his body and he's not really enjoying the partying. It's just what he knows. In the eye
This story was my favorite of the series so far.

I was worried about liking Gideon. He was such an absolute douche in Milo's book that I feared I wouldn't be able to invest in him. I'm glad I was wrong.

Gideon is a Hollywood actor who's been brainwashed by his agent since he was a teenager. Being gay is not compatible with being famous. Gideon has been hiding himself for so long, that he's been acting out in other ways. What's a little coke and shared sex partners between friends?

Nice addition to the series. I wasn't sure it was possible for Gideon to redeem himself. But he did.

As other reviews have mentioned, the two parts to the story definitely had different feels. The first part on the cruise was full of witty banter (a bit repetitive, if I'm being honest) and some good UST. I enjoyed Gideon and Eli's banter back and forth.

The second part after the cruise was full of rainbows and unicorns. I can appreciate that there was no manufactured drama. But things were a bit

Snark & Fluff.....DELICIOUSNESS!!!

Ill be brief: I loved this book up until the epilogue where I got told a whole bunch of stuff repeatedly to make sure I really got the fact that there is a super strong HEA. I GOT IT.

The actual book ROCKED! There was tension, snark, a hot nurse, a cranky movie star, a sassy old lady, and HOT AF SEX!!

Gideon was awful in the previous books, but here we see him hit rock bottom and crawl out of the abyss/closet with the help of Eli.

Hello! I was part of the I hate Gideon Fan Club like so many of my friends after reading Milo. There was just NO WAY his book was going to change my mind. I mean, really, Milo's book lost a star because of him! My review started out talking about him because I hated him so much and he took something from the book in my opinion.

I didn't even want his stupid story.

Well, fuck me.

Guys, I am allowed to be wrong right?

I think I kind of like Gideon
Oh, I absolutely adored this. After the last book, Gideon wasn't looking very good, not good at all, so I was wondering how Ms. Morton would redeem him and make him an enjoyable character. He really was an asshole in Milo's book.

But of course she was able to redeem him and more. Getting a character's POV and understanding their motivations and thoughts and desires really changes things. (Sometimes not if they're just a plain asshole, but most of the time it helps a lot - it certainly helps with
Well, well, well! What a surprise this was, and so good too. See, I knew that Gideon ran deep. I knew there was a lot going on behind that hard, bravado and I was soooo right and I floved him. He totally bowled me over with how he was with Eli .... his vulnerability, his honesty and even his insecurity. He couldn't hide a thing from Eli.

If ever two characters were meant to be it's Gideon and Eli.

This is what I wanted💕.. and this is exactly why I am such a fan of Ms Morton and her brilliant writing😍. She weaves these characters who have such personalities, ego, humor and fervor that you get swept away in their story and start rooting for their HEA as if it's your HEA. 🤩😍

Gideon is Milo's brother from book #2 and he wasn't a very likeable character when we met him. He had some unresolved issues and handled the knowledge of Milo and Niall's relationship in a horrible way.

In this book we get his story. We get to know him pretty well and get some answers about his behavior. You see, in reality, Gideon is an extremely lonely guy, he craved attention and to be wanted. All his life he felt he was a bourden to those around him - especially his parents who sent him away
Every time I think I have a favorite Morton book another comes along and blows me away. Another surprise was Gideon himself. I never anticipated him to elbow his way to the top. I can honestly say that I didnt care much for him (at all!) when we met him in the previous book. And one of my weaknesses is when an author turns my disdain into respect tinted with adoration. As it turns out, I absolutely adore Gid and his prickly exterior and soft warm heart. Luckily for us, he has a story. Sadly, it ...more

The fact that Lily Morton got me to not only like Gideon, but fall in love with the character is really all I need to say in this review. Gideon meets his match in Eli and I adored them together.

Full of the same feels and snark that made me love the series from the start, Gideon was another win from this author.

Enjoyed this a lot again, but still find the ending a bit over the top (sweet). However, the banter is simply glorious and very clever.

original review

Sassy snark. Boisterous banter. Relentless ribbing.

Gideon has all that and more.
Lily Morton has wielded her legendary skills of hilariousness and humour and outdone herself. Gideon is giving Gabe (from Lily Mortons Rule Breaker) a run for his money. And for me theyre head to head.

There's a reason why Lily Morton is one of my favorite authors. I swear, every time she writes a new book it's better than the last and ends up being a new favorite.

Gideon is full of humor, snarky banter, amazing characters and an even better story. I loved how well the story just flowed and kept a smile on your face.

The chemistry was all there and I'm glad I gave Gideon a second chance. I wasn't sure how he was going to redeem himself after the last book. If you're a fan of Lily
This might just be my favorite of the entire Finding Home series up to date and I don't even like Gideon when I met him in Milo's book. In fact, when I realized he will have his own book, for the first time I'm not counting down the days for a Lily Morton's release. I'm not surprised that the great, Ms Morton can change my mind, but I'm surprised that I love this book so much.

Gideon is a closeted celebrity and a total twat. The story begin with him at his lowest point in life, but he still have

Gideon by Lily Morton gave me all I've come to expect from a Lily Morton book:

Romance ✔

Laughter ✔

Longing ✔

Feels ✔

We first met asshole Gideon in Milo. He's Milo's older brother who came across as a self-centered and jaded actor. At the beginning of this book, it's safe to say this deep in the closet actor has hit rock bottom. A nurse- sexy, good-natured, Welsh nurse is hired to get him on the mend. What neither expects is for their humorous sparring to grow into more- except anything beyond

While I liked this, I wasnt blown away.

I loved the first book because Oz was just so funny. I skipped the second book because I would have hated the drama. And I had really high hopes for this one, but it was a but dull tbh. I didnt laugh even once. The humor and crazy situations I loved so much in Oz were completely missing in this.

Not that this was bad, because it was a nice, light, sweet book. There was no relationship drama or fabricated angst, so I did like that. I think I expected

Gideon is the third book in Lily Mortons incredible Finding Home series and I just adored everything about it. Just about every time I read a book by Morton I feel like its my new favorite. Each time I think I couldnt possibly love the new book as much as the last, but I constantly find myself charmed and delighted by her wonderful mix of swoony romance, great character development, and entertaining humor.

After being rather unhappy over Gideons role in Milos story, I was interested in how the author would turn Gideon around. Eli was quite perfect in balancing and meshing with Gideons carefree facade, used in covering up his deep insecurity. The banter and wit was outstanding, as it always is with this series. Slow burn romance always gives a better payoff for me as a reader. I prefer an HEA to be hard-won and I loved this portrayal, where Eli is an intelligent, compassionate human, as

I think that this one is my favourite of the three 'Finding Home' books! Which is surprising given the fact that I intensely disliked Gideon in Milo. I thought this book was absolutely hilarious and I adored both Gideon and Eli, Gideon was amazing (even when he was being annoying, which makes no sense but that's how it is!) and I just loved seeing him falling in love with Eli and learning to accept who he was. Oh and most importantly, Eli was a bit of a dark horse which was a lovely little ...more

I have to say I liked Gideon much more than in the previous book. The first part of the story was really fun. I liked the banter between Gideon and Eli. I also liked the emails they exchanged after the cruise.

But there were a few things that affected my overall enjoyment of the book. In no particular order:

Soooo in the previous book there was an element that was really off putting for me that centered around Gideon and I even mentioned it in my review for book #2. I was all wtf grrrr. Gideon sucks (even though the name is 🔥🔥).

Gideon starts off with a bang as hes drinking, doing drugs, and all about sex with as many people as possible. All those vices at the same time with multiple partners is a bonus. Hes self destructing as rapidly as his declining health and hes doing anything to remain
