The Other Man follows The Divorce in the Starting Over series and I would not suggest reading it as a standalone. This entire series is the story of Aled and Gabriel broken down into parts.

When the book opens, Aled and Gabriel have gotten extremely close and spend a good portion of their time together. Gabriel still has his regulars, Kevin and Michael, as well as hookups at times, but he and Aled have fallen into somewhat of a routine. However, their actual

So after I read "The Divorce", I found myself unbearably hooked despite the fact that "The Divorce" was at times really frustrating for me. I was really at an impasse at that time but I soon realised that these characters had gotten under my skin and I couldn't abandon their story no matter how much unsafe sex they practised.

For one because this story is so unique. It features a polyamorous relationship which is something I have never seen depicted in any romance I have read before. Now I would

I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads.

I loved being back with Aled and Gabriel. Nothing their relationship in and out of the bedroom is average. Their scenes when they played were great even though they were a little more extreme that I would normally read they were exciting.

Their romantic relationship was far more complicated than most. Gabriel has no wish to be monogamous and is fiercely independent. So Aled wanting Gabriel to move in with him poses issues

Read as part of the Around the Year in 52 Books Reading Challenge 2019, to fill 21) A book from one of the polarizing or close call votes and I chose A book with fewer than 5000 ratings on Goodreads.

4.5 stars.

This book. Has the most sensual fucking fisting scene in the history of fisting scenes. I love it.

Definitely outside my normal comfort zone but since it's written by Matthew I was drawn in by the characters - though I didn't feel as connected with them as I normally do. I am big fan of Matthews writing and read this in one sitting. You definitely have to have a very open mind in relation to kinks and relationships for this one.

A great read

I totally loved this follow up about the lives of Aled and Gabriel, a great pairing. I still don't understand polyamoury, but I guess it works for them especially Gabriel. It was good to see Aled comfortable with Kevin's relations with Gabriel. The sex is better than ever and smoking hot! Happy to find Gabriel attain his safe place with Aled.

Matthew is an asexual, transgender author from the wet and windy British Isles.

Matt writes LGBT novels, both adult and young adult, and particularly enjoys digging into the weird and wonderful diversity of people all across the sexuality and gender spectrums. When not writing, Matt is usually asleep, or crunching numbers at his day job. Free time is not really a concept here.

He is also owned by an
