The Best Gift (The Best Gift #1)
Malcolm is my favorite kind of hero. He’s Sweet, Sexy and Smart! As usual, Shawn’s characterization is top notch. Once again, Shawn wrote a hero who is flawed, but he’s someone you can identify with and stand behind flaws and all. I loved how he is able to make positive changes in his life, and be open to Dustin and Dustin’s love.
I loved sweet Dusty, too ...more

Malcolm Rowland and his live-in boyfriend, Jordan, are approaching their one-year anniversary when Malcolm learns that Jordan has been cheating on him. Although Jordan promises to end the affair (all of them?), infidelity is a deal breaker for Malcolm (hallelujah!) and he ends it. Christmas is only a couple weeks away and Malcolm finds himself jobless, homeless, but not helpless. Enter Dustin Jones, Malcolm's best friend who has secretly been in love with Malcolm for years. Dustin takes ...more
Wonderful emotions and great characters; Shawn Lane knows how to treat her readers right!
Apparently Malcolm is an high maintenance lover, small and pretty but not so independent, he seems perfectly paired with Jordan, wealthy macho latino man, police officer and 12 years older. And if sometime Jordan has ...more
Maybe that's because the most part of the story was more or less about Malcolm/Jordan couple and not Malcolm/Dustin?
But I liked the ending, of course, it was very sweet and comforting.
Dusty is there for Malcolm when he finds out that Jordan is cheating on him. He takes him in and is determined to help Malcolm get through the pain of break-up and back on his feet. Dusty’s not prepared to fully...more
Do you think JCP got any royalties for being named as the cheating boyfriend? LOL!
"Take me, Dusty. Make me yours."
Oh gag me.
This is a predictable and boring story. Malcolm has lived with -- been kept by, to be precise -- Jordan for a year. He finds out Jordan has been cheating, just before Christmas, and he packs up and leaves (wh ...more
A little fast on the rebound. But it was nice that they both admitted their long time feelings.
I would have liked a little time in between the break up though.
Hated Jordan from the first moment. Did anyone else's mind jump to Jordan Castillo Price when they first saw Jordan's name? That's not very nice. Hated Jordan Castillo...but love Jordan Castillo Price.
In the past she has written heterosexual romances (see her backlist) but is now concentrating on gay romances.
