If the first volume of Will and Mallory's story (Cheek to Cheek) was all about the initial meeting and beginning of their relationship, this second volume was like their coming of age. Relationship-wise, that is.

Mallory is still struggling with this "commitment thing", even though his issues with it now seem limited to the few occasions that some outsider or an event reminds him of it. It takes him a long time, and Will putting his foot down, to actually confront his own fears. When he does, I l

Overall, I still liked it. I was not expecting the climax and the eventual ending. And to be honest, this was drawn out a little long. I got bored with some parts. But thank goodness the last 25% made up for it.

A feel good follow up!

I bought this ages ago I was so pleased to be able to get to it and re-visit Mal and Will the fire fighters who are now an established couple.

In this second book Mal and Will are working through the implications of their relationship and the impact of this on their work and family life. It isn't just about coming out as gay but it is also about finding time for each other, having to work different shifts and also having to plan for one of them to move to a different station.

A perfect, mushy romance with well fleshed out characters and just enough conflict to keep things interesting. Highly recommended.

Turn The Other Cheek is the sequel to Cheek To Cheek in which Chris Owen picks up Mal and Will’s story several months into their relationship.

As with the first book, Turn The Other Cheek is well written and told from Mal’s point of view. One of the distinguishing traits of this author is her ability to dig deep into her characters and provide rich character perspectives and this is exactly what she does with the character of Mal. Chris Owen delves into this character to provide the read

Much more entertaining than the first Will and Mallory book, Cheek to Cheek, as it has more depth in it and a very interesting look into the difficulties of managing a career as a firefighter and a relationship with a colleague at the same time. I love Chris Owen's writing - always have - and I'm so glad she's published this sequel because I've missed her writing quite a lot since Acquired Tastes.

Loved these books. Loved these characters. Owen writes very nuanced characters and relationships. The writing also has a low key sense of humour. I am now chasing down her other books - but won't be reading no incest books.

A sweet continuation from the previous book. Nice, but not quite as good as the others.
I really enjoyed this wonderful sequel to Cheek to Cheek.

I loved seeing Mal and Will's relationship develop. They convinced me to believe in them as a couple, and I even came to like Mal a lot more than I did while reading the first book. There's no added drama here—the plot is driven by inner conflict, mainly Mal's struggle to accept that he really does want to commit to Will, even though he went into their "arrangement" with an entirely different attitude. I liked that the book was truly only

This is the follow-up to Cheek to Cheek. Mal and Will have fallen into a comfortable relationship but they finally realize they have to tell their boss as it's against the rules to have couples working on the same shift. Mal's not thrilled as he keeps his personal life private, but they have no choice. In general people are okay with it, although Will's brother still seems to hate Mal for being white. When it's time to take the next step, Mal freaks and does something hurtful. Will's en

I live and write in eastern Canada. I went to a bunch of schools, learned a lot of things, and now make stuff up because not to do so is unthinkable. I'm fond of fountain pens, Levenger's Circa system, and Steampunk fashions.
I'm inspired by the day to day minutia of life, and find beauty in the way words go together. I like texture and richness of experience. I'm not shy. I'm happy, I'm learning,
