I lost my boyfriend on the night I had planned to propose.
It was a horrific accident that was all my fault.
I gave up and resigned myself into a life of obscurity.

Until I got a call that my sister, Sara, needed me.
It gave me purpose and I ran to her rescue.
Because that’s what I’ve done our whole lives.

That’s how I ended up in Brigs Ferry Bay.
But when I showed up, things wer

A grumpy fisherman walks into a gay bar. Okay so that's not exactly the story but it was kinda weird and NQR. Especially when teamed up with the flamboyant bar owner who wants to lick him all over. I just couldn't get on board with the dynamics.

Archer has moved back to Brigs Ferry Bay to help his sister and her kids. Although a favour to her, it ends up being a healing process for the pair of them. Returning from Alaska, not only has he left his old life behind, but

I didn't like the first book of the series, but when I saw that Kian's Focus was written by a different author I decided to give it a go.

Sadly, Kian in this book is a different Kian than the one we met in book 1. He's not as sassy or funny or flamboyant. Granted, in book 1, we saw Kian as Jax saw him; this time we see Kian as Archer sees him and as Kian sees himself. Even so, book 1 Kian and book 2 Kian don't match.

My biggest gripe with this story, however, is that Sara, Archer's sister a

Misty Walker has done it again. Love this book, and she never disappoints. Whoever came up with Misty and K.Webster in the Brigs Ferry Bay series is a genius. I was hooked from the very beginning. It gutted me and then put me back together again.

We first meet Kian in Sherriff’s Secret, and I just loved him. Smart, kind, and caring. Owns a wine bar and Gay bar next to each other. He is flamboyant and sometimes conceded, but is loyal and gives his whole heart. I am in total awe of his strength.

So this story was tougher and sadder than i thought 💔💔💔

Topic like the death of the one we love and depression are not easy ones; but the author balanced hurtful moments with funny and sweet ones, and the result is perfect.

I was not a fan of Kian after reading Sheriff's secret, but i had to change my mind:
he is not only the man who like to flirt and have fun, he is also caring and sweet. And what happened with Jax left a mark on him too.

And Archer...
Gosh that man had a shitty life, and even if

4.25 stars story!!!!!! I absolutely love love MMRs with sassy twinks with unfiltered mouths and hearts of gold. That was Kian through and through! I absolutely adored him and his hilarious friends. I hope they get stories of their own.

I'm so upset I have to wait until next week for book 3.😫😫😫
this was super underwhelming. it didn’t feel like a romance at all. the plot was more focused around the side plots which overwhelmed the romance which was put on the back burner. and because of that it felt like there was little to no development between Kian and Archer. it would go from 0 to 100 suddenly, then back down to 0 bcos the side plot decided to take over.

and i was totally anticipating a conversation/confrontation between Kian and Jax bcos they totally needed to discuss their pasts a

I'm back in Brigs Ferry Bay and Misty Walker's story has solidified that this is where I shall stay for the rest of my days.

Kian's Focus is the second instalment in the Brigs Ferry Bay series, and it is the perfect follow up to book one. Not shying away from loss and heartache, Walker's characters go on a perfectly imperfect journey of heartbreak and healing.

Jesus Christ this book. Ok. So. I'm raw. I just finished and I'm a mess and I'm happy and I'm filled with so much love for Archer. I think he is one of my most favorite characters ever. I love how flawed Kian and Archer are and how they grow together. Kian especially. I wanted to shake him sometimes lol, but then he grows so much and it's so beautiful to watch. I love when an author can make you so angry and so sad and so happy at the same time. This book takes you on such a journey, vivid from ...more

You guys … this book is good! I mean like really good! I had the pleasure of reading Kian’s Focus immediately after finishing Sheriff’s Secret so that might have added a bit to my euphoria over this story but not much. All my bliss came from the story and the exemplary way Misty Walker once again blew my heart to smithereens and glued it back together all in fell swoop! I was already madly in love with Brigs Ferry Bay and its community, both the good and bad, but now I am next level crazy in lov ...more

This was my first book by the author and I really enjoyed it, especially because it’s a M/M romance and I love reading them. Besides I wanted to read Kian’s story and see his HEA.

Archer and Kian were amazing, I loved how sweet and caring Archer was with his niece and nephew, and despite not being very open about his life at first, little by little he started trusting Kian and their scenes were really hot and steamy!🔥

Kian was wonderful too, he was always there for his friends and everyone around

Kian’s Focus is the second book in the Brigs Ferry Bay series, and I was eager to read it after enjoying Sheriff’s Secret. I’ll be honest and say I did not enjoy this quite as much as I enjoyed the first book, but it certainly had me hooked and left me eager for more.

After falling in love with Kian in the first book, I was curious to find out about the man who’d win his heart. Within no time, I had fallen in love with the characters and their story, leaving me desperate to see how the pieces wou

Where to start? I loved this book. It touched on very real, very difficult subjects and Misty handled it beautifully! It was so well written and I literally refused to put it down. I started it last night, read til 1or 2 in the morning and then immediately started reading again when I woke up!

It was so good! Love, love, loved it!

“Kian’s Focus” is the second book of the “Briggs Ferry Bay” series by the author Misty Walker. Told in dual perspectives , get ready to meet Archer and Kian!!

Another amazing MM romance in this series! I am just so addicted. The way Misty writes is amazing and this is the first MM book of her that i have read and she sure did not disappoint!

Kian’s story was a tale of love and sacrifice. He was a gay man and a shy one too. He had already bee

Kian is probably my favorite character. Other than Cato. I love him too 😂 The Gays of BFB are absolute best and Mayor Bell can go fall in a deep hole.

Archer and Kian were SIGHHEARTS. They took some time to truly come to together but it was for good reasons.

Kian's Focus by Misty Walker was an emotional, heartwrenching, steamy MM romance set in the unique Maine town of Brigs Ferry Bay.

The opening to this book broke my heart. It ACHED for Archer and what he lost. That man was so stoic, yet vulnerable. Dominant, yet considerate. The love he had for his sister, niece, and nephew was so beautiful. While fighting his own darkness it prevented him from seeing his sister's and that resulted in a scary situation. Luckily, only positive things came from that

Be still my angst- loving heart! Kian’s Focus is both heartwarming and heart wrenching. It’s a story of loss, forgiveness, acceptance, and finding love again. This story checked all the boxes I love in romance!

This is the second M/M romance story I have read by Misty Walker, and I have to say she met and exceeded my craving for this genre. Right off the bat, Misty captured my attention with one of the most heartbreaking opening scenes I've ever read in this opposites attract story. And as the st

Right from the start I was hit in the emotions and teary eyed! What an incredibly emotional beginning!
The characters and their story are simply AMAZING!
It’s a story with a quite few heavy/emotional storylines... and yet it also made me laugh, smile and swoon!
All the emotions were hit so well. So perfectly balanced.
The hot factor is scorching! These two men are fire!
I love their opposite personalities, it really makes the interactions so lively. I adore them both!

This was my first Misty Walker book and I have to say,
I’m a new fan. She wrote a story that had emotional tragedy, real ass shit, humor, swoon worthy romance, and belly-laughing-humor all in one book. It was perfect.
“Archer’s full of passion and intensity. It’s what drew me to him. I’m the ocean, calm and steady. But he’s the waves, turbulent and unpredictable.”
Archer and Kian. Well. We know a little about Kian if you read the first book Sheriffs Focus. He’s a flamboyant openly gay and proud
I have been meaning to read this author for a while but I’ve been listening to audiobooks almost exclusively the past year, so Kian’s Focus is the first book that I have read by her. It definitely won’t be the last. This book knocked my socks off! I loved it. I hated each time I had to put it down and couldn’t wait to get back to it. Now, over a day later, I still can’t stop thinking of the main characters, Kian and Archer. Reading this book was such a delicious escape from reality. I was so com ...more

I adored the first book in the series and I was very excited about Kian's story.
Let me say that I absolutely loved Archer. He was a wonderful match for Kian.
I enjoyed how sweet and heartwarming this was. When I first met Kian in the first book, I didn’t know what to make of him.
But this book gave me a proper look into his character and I fell in love with him.
Archer and Kian couldn't be more different and yet they were so right for each other.

Kian is still getting over the love of his young life picking another man. Archer is still in mourning from losing the love of his life in an unspeakable accident. Two men, neither saw the other coming.

This book was by turns happy and sad. Kian’s character is snarky and sweet, while Archer carries around the weight of the world. Depression (sometimes severe) is a delicate issue and I thought the author did a good job of portraying the challenges that have to be dealt with in living with and trea

Oh Kian and Archer, you were meant to be!

These two were broken, but when their jagged pieces came together they fit perfectly! They both had baggage, Kian from high school and Archer losing his love in a tragic accident a short time ago. They soothed something in each other that was profoundly hurt. Archer was stubborn at times, but Kian didn't let go when Archer tried to push him away.

I loved their dynamic, the inclusion of the secondary characters was just right and the chemistry between Kian

I mean wow, just wow. It’s no surprise to me that I would love the story, I mean it’s a Misty Walker story, and I love her writing. She has the ability to bring you into a story and you never want to leave, she gives the characters such depth and demension that they become more than just characters in a story.

This is a story about Archer and Kian, this is not a fairytale romance, this is a journey of emotion and vulnerabilities of two men coming to terms with their insecurities and their sense o

After being introduced to the small town of Brigs Ferry Bay and its sexy lawman in Sheriff’s Secret, I instantly adored the feel of the community and the people in it. I truly wanted to love this story as much as I did the first, but sadly it fell short for me.

In Sheriff’s Secret, we met Jax, the small town sheriff who as a teen chose hiding his sexuality rather than coming out to be with his boyfriend, Kian. Kian was as much resentful of Jax as he was still pining for his first love al

Kian has always been one step ahead. He is put together on the outside in his bow ties and suspenders, owns two flourishing businesses and has the best group of friends. What he doesn’t realize he needed most was for someone to come in and crash into the calm and throw his life off balance.
