A completely different tone and pace for this latest V&V romance

4_V&V_Grayson_ebook_FINALUndercover by Eliot Grayson

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

My favourite one after Garrett’s and a completely different tone and pace for the V&V series.

This one’s funny as well as sweet, it has an undercover FBI agent doing his best not to fall for a potential suspect and failing miserably.

And it has Gabe, lovely Gabe, who is so much more than his lack of confidence and default way of falling into superficial ‘little rich kid’ persona.

The investigation/suspense element of the plot worked for me, even if it did all wrap up rather quickly, it made sense.

Alec and Gabe are a wonderful pairing too, once they get all the obstacles out of their path.

It’s medium steam, when they get it on they’re on fire, but it takes a reasonable build up to get there. Again, it felt realistic given the nature of Alec’s undercover role.

So far I’ve had an excellent experience with every one of the Vino and Veritas instalments.

Felice Stevens nails the redemption arc in this beautiful romance

Cort—Unbreakable (Man Up Book #4)Cort—Unbreakable by Felice Stevens

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When Felice Stevens sets out to write a redemption arc there’s no holding back and this one nails it completely.

Anyone who has read One Call Away knows how much of an absolute bastard Harlen was, vicious and hateful and the cause of so much pain.

Here, while he’s never excused for that behaviour, he is explained, the reasons behind his cruelty were just as damaging to him as his subsequent behaviour was to others.

The villain of that piece really does become a changed man through his own efforts and also because one man wouldn’t give up on him.

Cort is the real deal, an honest Texas cowboy in the Big Apple and he knows what it’s like to be rejected. He sees something in Harlen and what then becomes a most beautiful love story begins.

Everything in this story worked for me. I loved the two of them together, I loved that Harlen owned his shitty behaviour and that he had the courage to take the hand he was offered.

Now I’m waiting for the ultimate enemies to lovers when James finally gets his story told 🙂
