Bossy Cover

Blurb

No names, no details, no complications.

Michael Pietersen isn’t up for complications. He’s one of Sydney’s fastest-moving career-focused corporate realtors, and the only thing he has time for is one-night stands with zero fuss.

Bryson Schroeder’s back home from two years overseas with plans to leave his family’s hotel empire and begin his own business ventures. Out with his friends to celebrate his return, he sees a gorgeous blond man across the bar, and with barely a smile and a raised eyebrow, they leave together for a night of incredible chemistry.

But the rules are clear: no names, no details, no complications.

But one night becomes one more night, and eventually the arrangement suits them both for weeks . . . until their professional and personal worlds collide. With their hearts already on the line, Michael and Bry need to decide just how complicated they want to get.

About The Author

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.

She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.

She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.

She’s been writing ever since…

This would make a brilliant romcom

Bossy CoverBossy by N.R. Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an absolute classic N.R. contemporary romance, filled with humour and heat.

I loved the Fourth Wall introduction to the book which we hear from Michael, the Mr Bossy of the title.

It acts as a sort of Prologue, it’s a bit like the equivalent of a narrator’s voiceover giving the reader the pertinent facts before the story begins.

I’m sure some people won’t be keen but, for me, bracketing the main elements with Michael’s words direct to the reader really worked.

It set the scene for what turns into an absolute belter of a contemporary romcom which would make a brilliant film.

From the moment our two guys meet, it’s clear the “casual sex once a week” arrangement isn’t going to happen.

They just click. The sex is on fire, definitely one of Nic’s hottest books, but it’s also surprisingly emotional from the off too. They connect in mind and spirit as well as physically.

With a bunch of interesting tension points coming from external sources, it makes the romance the prime focus without any overly dramatic plot points chucked in.

I would have liked to see another scene with them and Michael’s family, the brief one we get is hilarious, and my only other comment would be that I felt both read slightly older than their ages (26 for Bryson, two years older for Michael).

But that’s not to say it spoiled anything because it didn’t. I liked their maturity, and it didn’t feel out of character.

With a smashing group of friends and a very solidly Aussie setting, this one was a delight.

Slow burny in the best way and packed with UST

road-to-you-2-ebook-1Road to You by Jaclyn Quinn

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I wanted to thump Parker a lot of the time in this book, but I also wanted to give him a fluffy blanket and tell him it would be okay 🤣

Road to You is a well written second chance romance coupled with a best friend’s brother and childhood friends trope.

It relies perhaps a tiny bit too much on using flashbacks to give insights into Parker and Jason’s past lives but it’s a difficult path to travel narratively if the reader doesn’t have this information in some way or another.

That said, there aren’t hundreds of them and what there is, are used to highlight a specific memory or give a particular insight into why Parker behaves as he does.

Jason was a more sympathetic character from the off because the reader knows he’s sorry and regretting the single mistake he made at a critical time in their past.

He’s seeking forgiveness from the start and doing all he can to get Parker to see how much he regrets what he did.

There’s no other drama, every tension point comes from Parker’s vulnerability and the plot moves along at a reasonable pace.

This book overlaps into the same timeframe as the last two in the series, but only by a small amount.

It’s a slow burn, but has some wonderfully intimate moments once Parker admits he’s still in love and willing to risk his heart again.
