Let Me Show You by Becca Seymour
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
My first book from this author and lots of promise shown in a very solid romance with plenty of feels.
There’s a really quirky meet/cute in this which had me smiling and that just carried on throughout the book as Carter and Tanner fell in love.
There’s not much angst, my only criticism – and it’s a small one – is that the set-up for the “bad guy” was a tad abrupt. Especially considering, as I’d figured, he’s going to be one of the MCs in the second book in the series.
Him behaving like a jerk came out of left field, wasn’t really given a lot of focus in the narrative and then suddenly was resolved with an apology that also came out of nowhere. I think a little bit more time given to this element of the plot and I’d have been looking at another star on this rating.
Apart from that though, I liked the small town vibe, I liked the communication between Carter and Tanner, I liked the romance, the sex was a mix of on page and off, sometimes sweet, sometimes steamy.
There’s also a nice bunch of secondary characters and a cute baby and a dog so it ticks a lot of those boxes!

Poke Check by R.J. Scott & V. L. Locey
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
My favourite one so far in this series and absolutely brilliantly done without tumbling into cliche or making Stan, glorious Stan, into a joke.
The big Russian has been on my radar since he first appeared as Ten’s best friend on the Railers team and it was a joy to finally get his romance. His broken and mangled English captured my heart and I loved this romance.
I felt so bad for Erik, who was hurting inside over what had happened but who was sure that he’d done what he had to do to secure his son’s future.
There’s a lot of water under this bridge but in the hands of these two authors we get a proper second chance romance with real communication and heart felt discussions about what had happened.
The sex is joyous and passionate, there’s a truly explosive wall sex scene which makes up for all the hurting that’s gone before! I loved the family aspect in this too which extends beyond the Railers and their commitment to their teammates to encompass Stan’s sister and mother as well as Erik’s nanny. All contribute to the success of the setting.
The little hint of book five at the end also left me wanting more and its another fab cover too.
